Hi jamesroy,

I wanted to check back in and see if anyone has assisted you.

Before we can figure what a good replacement is, we would need to know what do you use your router for.

Please let us know. :]

Take a look at the R7800 it’s pretty much the same as the XR500 minus the NetDuma software additions to the OS. It’s IMHO the best performing unit on 5Ghz and its CPU is much more powerful than the R8500 (VPN performance), also it has a proper MU-MIMO implementation.
