Invalid Numeric Value for Monthly Limit RAX38 - AX3000

What number do you use in the MONTHLY LIMIT field for Traffic Meter?
Comcast has a limit of 1229GB (1.2 TB or so).
The router field says the value must be in MBytes. So, 1 TB is about 1048576 MB.

When I enter "1048576" in the MONTHLY LIMIT field for TRAFFIC METER, I am unable to APPLY the setting and I get this message:

"Invalid Numeric Value for Monthly Limit"

So, what gives?

   Firmware version?

   Sounds to me like lame firmware.  On my (older/lamer) D7000[v1]
(V1.0.1.78_1.0.1), the form accepts no more than six digits in that
field.

 

   What's the biggest value which yours accepts?  (Subtract 1 from your
"1048576"?  Otherwise, start dividing by 2?)

Probably. I've read elsewhere that IF I roll back the firmware, it should go back to working as it's supposed to?

   Thanks for the helpful link(s).

   Are you asking me or telling me?  With my weak psychic powers, I
don't know what you read, and I still don't know the firmware version
involved, let alone to what you might want to "roll back".  Not every
firmware problem is a new firmware problem.

 

   I don't have an RAX38 at hand, so, if any experimentation needs to be
done, then I wouldn't hold my breath while waiting for me to do it.

 

   Note, too, that there is an RAX38 and an RAX38v2, which differ.  Look
for "Model" on the product label.  (An actual firmware version might
offer a clue to that mystery, too.)


   Visit http://netgear.com/support , put in your model number, and look
for Downloads.  (For older versions, under Firmware and Software
Downloads, look for "View Previous Versions".)  Find the kit(s).
Download the kit(s) you want.  Read the "Release Notes" file for
instructions.  (In the User Manual, look for "firmware", and,
especially, for a topic like "Manually Upload Firmware to the Router".)
When that fails because of a deficient User Manual, try:

 

      https://kb.netgear.com/23960

 

   The RAX38[vX] models are sufficiently new that I see only very
limited options for "Previous Versions".

 

   So far as I know, it's possible that the firmware is using 32-bit
arithmetic for this stuff, and simply can't handle values that large.
Hence the previous (unanswered) questions:
