I'm pretty sure it is bogus but it does show my WAP IP address for the attack which is normal. Logging does not show the port or capture the packet but without one can't be sure.

Anyone else see something similar?


I didn't get any response for this but I think I've tracked it down. I was testing BufferBloat at www.dslreports.com/speedtest#nada and had left QoS on for U/L. A few days ago I noticed that it was still on and turned it off. Since then, NO DOS attacks at all.

Played with that setting today and when on I do get attacks. If someone does have QoS on could you check the log and see if you have any attacks?

LOL. I've done multiple upgrades on my unit never done any resets on it. It's 100% stable. Sounds like a waste of time to me.

Hey Netgear could you add a power LED only option that also shows the WIFI LED? Would be nice to tell at a glance if it's on or off. Thanks.

There are many hundreds of cases posted in these forums where factory resets and re-entering settings manually after a firmware upgrade has resolved issues, so all I can say is that you should consider yourself lucky for not having to reset, it is after all strongly implied in the upgrade instructions that this may be necessary in some cases;

"1.Write down all the settings which you changed from the default values, since you may need to re-enter them manually."

Re: New Firmware Version 1.0.4.30

Agreed. I've had to hard-reset my router a few times, as well. It's not a 'waste of time' to me, either. In point of fact, the Netgear firmware is structured to make reconfiguration by hand relatively quick-and-painless for those of us who stick to pretty simple configurations.

When netgear mention to do it there is a reason, even Asus routers need it done. System level changes can make things go a bit screwy sometimes if you dont, I had a glitch recently that a re-flash seems to have sorted it I hope, and once again I always reset, also if there are driver updates its something that needs to be done to make sure everything has been updated properly so you have lessened possible conflicts, lots of people on forum find a reset cures a lot of issues.

What failed? The flash itself? Or the firmware after the flash? If it was the flash, I'd suggest resetting the router to factory defaults before flashing (as well as after). And multiple tries to do the flash can also help.

But that's just a guess until you're more specific about what actually failed.

Thanks.

Re: New Firmware Version 1.0.4.30

I just picked up the R7000 and was curious as to the most stable firmware revision. I have had a few Netgear routers in the past and a lot of time the most recent was not the most stable. Any insight would be be appreciated.

I am using XVORTEX Firmware, the signal strength is way better than Stock/Tomato/DD-WRT, my home network speed got much better (not internet - it has stayed the same), no reboots (not even 1), boots up very very fast, DHCP gives IP to my devices very fast, ... .
I don't use built-in VPN services or DDNS or ... , so I can't help you with that, but I would recommend you, check this firmware, you won't regret it.

Good luck.

Re: New Firmware Version 1.0.4.30

I am running V1.0.4.28_1.1.64 and it is stable for me. Always reset the router using the recessed button on the back of the router both before and after flashing firmware. You must hold the reset button for several seconds until the power light is blinking.

Re: New Firmware Version 1.0.4.30

That kind of reset is not necessary on these ARM routers. Reset is done via FW option.

Not necessary, but it works. I like using the reset button, myself. And if you can't log into the router web interface, it's convenient to use the button.

I find that using the FW reset is not always as *clean* as a hard reset using the button on the rear, I had an issue awhile back I think caused by a bad download, and using the FW clear didn't deal with it, where as the button reset button did.

"And if you can't log into the router web interface, it's convenient to use the button."

That's apple and oranges though.

People of course are free to do as they wish. There has been caution out there about doing hardware reset bricking these ARM routers.

Not going to bother finding the link because people as noted can do as they wish.

FW reset to defaults, update FW, FW reset to defaults, configure new.

Always cleans out the relevant changed nvram values-settings, which is the point of doing a reset, and does not require hardware button push reset.

If pushing the reset button is your thing, push away.

Re: New Firmware Version 1.0.4.30

Ok, another newbie question on this router. Why do I see some places refer to an ARM CPU, and some places refer to a BROADCOM CPU? Are there 2 different versions?

Re: New Firmware Version 1.0.4.30

Broadcom has licensed ARM architecture to use in their new SOC CPU cores. So now Broadcom has new ARM-based chip sets.

Re: New Firmware Version 1.0.4.30

I'm confused. You talking new as compared to the ARM based units we have now?

My understanding of the next wave, we see some of them now, is that its more like a computer within a computer. All the custom FW guys can do is mess with the computer that controls the interface, the GUI, etc. The actual wireless part, brains, radios, drivers, etc., or the brains of them is untouchable.

Which is different than these ARM based units.

Could be wrong of course. But that's what I understand.

don't get your hopes up of getting anything out of that log. It's mostly useless. I'm on my 65th day uptime on Xvortex and again not a single issue

I think there is something very odd in the stock fw for it to drop the WAN. I got the same thing while I was still fighting with the stock. Better move on and stop worry Smiley Happy

Re: New Firmware Version 1.0.4.30

I think so, its just I don't like giving up and like to try and work out why these drops occur. I mean the Mac was asleep, wifi on nothing was doing much of anything. Logs do seem useless they show nothing but DHCP requests never even show a port scan when I use shields up. Netgear should really look into thins. At 21 days I thought I had made it :rolleyes:

Re: New Firmware Version 1.0.4.30

Just a question.
Has anyone ran to into a speed problem with the 1.0.4.30 firmware and the R7000?
It may be a coincident, but since I updated to that firmware my speeds have been all over the place. Re-boot and everything is back to normal for about 24 hours then the trouble starts all over until I re-boot again.
I am on Comcast extreme tier and normally get around 177 down and 24 up.
Now my download is all over the place, but my upload stays steady.
Just curious.
I installed an old Netgear 37AV just to see if indeed the trouble is in the router.

Re: New Firmware Version 1.0.4.30

It has been about 14 hours using the old router and it has been steady both down and up. Things would be starting to degrade on the R7000 with the 1.0.4.30 by now.
So it's the firmware causing my problem or the router itself.
What is the best way to go back to a previous firmware version?
I know I can do a hard reset and start from scratch, but thought there may be an easier way.
Thanks :confused:

All you got to do is flash the old version using the router web admin GUI "upgrade firmware" functionality. Then do a reset to factory defaults, and manually re-enter your settings. You do it the same way that you would do an upgrade to a newer version of firmware.
