Re: New Official Firmware 1.0.4.14

Reset back to factory default and re-enter your settings manually. Telnet should be disabled.

Re: New Official Firmware 1.0.4.14

This firmware is the best I've seen so far and is the first one that does not re-boot itself when I have IPV6 DHCP enabled. I finally have a reliable and fast R7000. Thank you Netgear.

WIFI Multimedia. It is located under the QoS Setup.

Re: New Official Firmware 1.0.4.14

Not sure that any user settings, settings that would clear with a restore to NVRAM defaults-reset, have anything to do with Telnet being enabled. It being so is not a user config kind of thing.

Some one at Netgear left the On/Off switch On.

Not so. The setting appears to be in the saved configuration and will clear when you reset to factory defaults. Try it, you'll see.

Not sure how it gets set, but it's not the latest firmware. Had a long exchange with Netgear support and I did the factory reset and the telnet was then disabled.

Re: New Official Firmware 1.0.4.14

No thanks. I'm sticking with the trylan2 FW and Telnet is enabled.

Well, that helps to explain why I saw telnet disabled in this firmware...I always do a factory reset to defaults. I was able to enable it, though, as I mentioned above.

Same question. Where's the DFS support?

You do realize that telnet can be done over the internet to your router using your WAN IP address - with no password protection.

Re: New Official Firmware 1.0.4.14

Yes. Possible. Likely?

My router is behind my cable modem.

Anyone can hack pert near everything. I'm not worried about it however.

Re: New Official Firmware 1.0.4.14

Unless your modem is capable of blocking unsolicited traffic, e.g. it is also a router, then port scanners will look for common ports, including telnet, as standard. Your risk may be much higher than you imagine. I have reported this issue to Netgear.

Re: New Official Firmware 1.0.4.14

So people are sure that it's open on the WAN side as well as the LAN side?

Not sure why the option has to be removed at all. Sure, it's a consumer router but people who buy this type of hardware usually like to tinker with stuff.

Just my 2 cents.

I am behind a powerfull firewall, pfSense 2.2. No unsolicited traffic is allowed on WAN and only 1 client on LAN can access R7000 telnet port.
- Modem Draytek Vigor 130
- Firewall/Router pfSense 2.3.1 (Supermicro A1SRi-2558)
- AP Netgear R7000 (Stock FW)

Re: New Official Firmware 1.0.4.14

Just upgraded this firmware again, and did a reset to factory defaults before restoring my old configuration. Telnet is definitely not open, so no worries if you do the reset to factory defaults as mentioned.

Can't account for why telnet works if you don't do a reset to factory defaults, but this should be mentioned on Netgear's page for this firmware (that you need to do a reset to factory defaults after flashing it).

Unless you don't care, but there may be other problems in the future if you don't do the reset to factory defaults.

Re: New Official Firmware 1.0.4.14

Interesting that a reset to factory defaults disables telnet. I wonder if Telnet functionality can be restored by changing a value in a settings backup and then restoring that file.

Could be, but it's a totally open telnet session, no login needed. That's the basic problem, most firmware that I've used (not all *smile*) allow you to login using telnet, using the router's admin password. This one just comes up logged in, ready to go. Not so desirable to have running all the time.

I've been able to enable telnet easily, though, using a python script. Not so easy to disable, all I've found so far is a reset to factory defaults *smile*. If you exit the session, it comes right up again with a new putty.

So for me, it's more an issue of being able to disable it in a way that allows it be re-enabled.

Don't know that anyone has said so positively one way or the other.

Re: New Official Firmware 1.0.4.14

How did you do it? I used telnet on my phone with wifi off, and also tried an online scanner, and both timed out. I could log in from my LAN, but that doesn't count, we're talking about logging in from outside of one's own LAN.

Re: New Official Firmware 1.0.4.14

This upgrade broke my video playing capability through Roku.

I attached a usb drive into the router and using the old firmware, Roku was able to play the videos I have in the drive. With the new firmware, videos just hangs.

Tried to refresh the media files but still wont play.

Is there a way to install back the old one (V1.0.3.80-1.1.38)? Should I just upload back the old firmware without any issues?

TIA!

Re: New Official Firmware 1.0.4.14

Karipay, yes, you can flash an older firmware without a problem. Just ignore the warning that tells you that that's what you're doing *smile*. One more thing, given that you're having a problem, I'd recommend that you reset your router to factory defaults and then manually re-enter your configuration settings.

On the other hand, if you haven't reset to factory defaults since upgrading to this firmware, you might try that, and then re-enter your configuration settings manually) before giving up on this firmware.

Are you using telnet from within your own network to the public IP of your router? If yes, then telnet works... Can you try this from another internet location to your WAN IP? I am pretty sure that doesn't work.
