XR1000 2.4 guest wifi is slow and won't connect to my Ring devices.
Just upgraded from my A1900 Nighthawk to the XR1000. Everything was able to connect and worked fine except my ring devices. I have purposly set up a 2.4 guest wifi for the cameras to go on. And I disabled the AX setting. My August door lock is in the same spot my ring doorbell is and that connected just fine. When I try to connect i get a error saying my wifi is weak. Speed test for my 2.4 is at 60 download which is not even close to what I pay for, but still fast enough and set to channel 11 for the longest range. I have my doorbell next to my router and still getting an error. I factory reset all my ring devices and still have the same error. I contacted ring and they gave me some port forwarding info. I contacted my ISP and they were useless and contacted netgear and have received nothing as well. I can not be the only person which this issue.
Solved! Go to Solution.

Netgear has set up a community forum specifically for the NightHawk Gaming Router products. Most of the people who watch that forum are more likely to have experience with NH gaming router products and know how to work it better than those of us who follow this router forum. Might be more likely to find someone who has a solution if the question is posted there:
