NG R7000 Firmware 1.0.10.90

Well folks here it is. As usual not much in the change log. Good Luck should you decide to give it a try.

Re: NG R7000 Firmware 1.0.10.90

here's to hoping its better than some of the buggy versions that've been released for this router.

The dowload link to this version of the firmware is broken.  Was it pulled?

Looks like even Netgear figured out they put out a bad version of firmware. Typical of their oversite, testing and QA. Usually seem to just leave the buggy firmware available so this one must have been really bad. Take the device list issue that is over a year old for example.

Re: NG R7000 Firmware 1.0.10.90

Should we read any significance to the increment of the release number from 1.0.9 to 1.0.10? We've been on 1.0.9.x releases for over 2 years.

"the latest" is not a firmware version number and is not useful information

Re: NG R7000 Firmware 1.0.10.90

I have already upgraded to V1.0.10.90_10.2.90

Do you recommend to downgrade or wait for the next FW update?

Re: NG R7000 Firmware 1.0.10.90

Does it work? And not have issues?

If it works, i'd leave it up and running. That's been the go-to answer with the R7000. If it works, don't mess with it. Smiley Happy 

If it doesn't work, downgrade the firmware and factory reset.

Re: NG R7000 Firmware 1.0.10.90

i disabled QOS and my router speeds are back at around 300MBPS wired and around 300MBPS on 5G, 2.4 is around 250MBPS. i was only seeing initially before troubleshooting around 1.2MBPS down, there seems to be a bug in the QOS setting in the latest release for the firmware.

Re: NG R7000 Firmware 1.0.10.90

I'm frustrated. Purchase a new router or wait for firmware update? My WiFi internet running at 25mbps. And it appears from the forum it's the firmware.

Seeing how this is your first post, that's not a for sure. Even with the R7000 firmware issues, its still capable of pretty darned good speeds. 

If you start your own thread and go over your equipment, your setup, testing methodology, then maybe we can help troubleshoot your issue.

Re: NG R7000 Firmware 1.0.10.90

Start my own thread? I'm reading and attempting to understand why my router is running 25mbps download speed when LAN is 180-220.  It appears to me the current firmware is not good. I purchased this router in March 2019! Defective? Or firmware? When you use it with smart home devices it's a pain to reset factory or ?.?  It's a 3 evening process to reconnect all the devices I use. Netgear- fix the problem or lose the customer

Yes, start your own thread. 

Everyone's setup is different and requires different fixes/troubleshooting. running the same router and having slowed speed doesn't mean the problem is the same. 

You have a different home setup, different devices connected, (probably) a different modem, etc. I could go on. If you'd like help, please start your own thread and we'll be glad to help. maybe we can get your devices running properly and if it turns out your product is defective, you should still be within your 1 year warranty period (if it was new) for a little longer. 

 

this is the community forum, not netgear. We're members of the public helping others out. We're not paid or recieve incentives. threatening "Netgear-fix the problem or lose the customer" will get you no where as we aren't netgear. Same as being outraged/snarky with us. it tends to leave the people helping you, not wanting to help you. so keep in mind, we aren't netgear and we're not paid to do this. 

 

We're more than willing to help but I'm not going to make someone else's thread/problem confused with your own.

Re: NG R7000 Firmware 1.0.10.90

The firmware of this router has been a bit of a challenge, but there are a few steps you can try.

 

1. Have you disabled UPnP and enabled Dynamic QoS?


2. How many devices do you have? It looks that 20+ devices slows down the wireless speed (max 30 devices).


3. You can downgrade to a more stable firmware.

Re: NG R7000 Firmware 1.0.10.90

Thanks for the respons.

UPnP disabled, unchecked and enabled Dynamic QoS

16 wireless devices, and 1 LAN

Yes, I'm aware of downgrading firmware, but would like to try other options first.

When you use the Nighhawk iPhone app says I have 180-230mbps.  I was told that was between my phone and router.

When I use speedtest I get average 25mbps down.  With app and speedtest, upload is about the same at 20mbps. And that is what is promised by Spectrum Internet.  I pay for 100-400mbps

Re: NG R7000 Firmware 1.0.10.90

So what about this firmware update that was pulled and is supposed to support those affected by the low up and down-speeds? 

 

I just read a thread that started at January 2018 and going up to the present day, with people that all have the same problem. 

 

https://community.netgear.com/t5/Nighthawk-WiFi-Routers/Netgear-R7000-Slow-Internet-Speed-Our-Fix-SO...

 

The fix that was given is to downgrade. Which is not a fix, but ok when you are on NETGEAR it may be the most logical thing to do. Given the fact that Netgear needs time to solve the problem. And since Netgear seems to have a different notion about time than most users, the users are apparently used to this kind of Neatgar-treatment. Which is to just ignore customer satisfaction it seems.

 

So again my question: What about the update and is it solving the low speeds on this high speed advertised device?

  1. R6900|Nighthawk AC1900 Smart WiFi Router (Purchased in 2016)
  2. Curernt Firmware Version:  V1.0.11.100_10.2.100 (latest version)
    Netgear R7000 Support Page: https://www.netgear.com/support/product/r7000.aspx
  3. UPnP and QoS: DISABLED
  4. Bandwidth Plan:  I buy 300Mbps. 
  5. My Arris TG3452A Cable Modem's Built-in 5G Wifi gets me 320Mbps down and around 10Mbps up.
    Note:  Speedtests done with:  https://speedtest.tds.net/ and https://fast.com/

The Nighthawk tops out at 180Mbps down right after a reboot, then degrades to 80Mbps within 15 minutes, and down below 20Mbps within a few hours and needs rebooted again.

 

Any ideas?
