Be sure to save off a back up configuration to file for safe keeping. Saves time if a reset is needed.

I am also having this issue. R7900P. I've been waiting for an update from Netgear for months but maybe they don't support it anymore? Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

I presume since the 7900 series hit EoL, I doubt NG will be forth coming with any fixes for these models:

https://www.netgear.com/about/eos/

 

Best suggestions would be to downgrade to prior working version of FW.

Find some 3rd party FW that you can use, i.e. OpenWRT or DD-WRT.

Punt and get you something new.

Re: New - R7900P/R7960P/R8000P Firmware Version 1.4.4.94 Released

Can I get this Beta Firmware as well to fix my LAN MAC address issue?  I've got the R8000P and my current firmware is 1.4.4.94_1.3.56 and I am on Windows 11.  Also, since this Beta Firmware has been used for a few months now has anyone ran into any issues with it, besides the slightly added latency thing? 

 

Thank you.

I've been using the beta 1.4.4.95 firmware for a couple of weeks now on my R7960P. That fixed the MAC address issue and the missing/incorrect connection information. However I've discovered two issues:

 

A) Traffic meter does not work correctly. There is nothing displayed for yesterday (zeros), and this week & this month are always the same numbers as today. Last months numbers seem to be correct (maybe), but hard to know.

 

B) Email notification incorrect. I have to set to email me the logs weekly Sunday @ 00:00 and what I get in the email is valid data (log info) for the day before (Saturday). The rest of the text in the email is hundreds of lines of "Wednesday, Dec 31,1969 16:00:00"

 

Thanks for the support.

I bought the R7960P at a garage sale for $20 and made the mistake of upgrading the firmware.  I’m having the same invalid MAC address issue. I would like to try the beta firmware.

Re: New - R7900P/R7960P/R8000P Firmware Version 1.4.4.94 Released

Another update - On my R7960P using the 1.4.4.95 firmware, in ADVANCED HOME -> SHOW STATISTICS, there's actually a few issues.

 

- WAN port line shows zero for TX B/S, RX B/S (however LAN ports show non-zero TX B/S, RX B/S)

- All 3 radio lines show zeros for TXPKTS, TX B/S, RX B/S

 

Additionally the COLLISIONS column is all zeros, which is normally what it should be, however given other fields are zero, this should be reviewed because maybe it's just not reporting collisions.

 

Thanks,

Mike

NG doesn't give us that info. So users will keep to keep an eye on the download pages or check here in the forums occasionally.
