New R8000

I got mine from Amazon today. I just set it up and a couple of this I wanted to say.

1. I thought it would combine 2.4 and 5.0 into one happy network. It only does that with 5.0.

2. Netgear please ...please make it so I dont have to reboot every time I make a change.

3. Reboot times are horrible, almost 1 min. I had the wrt1900ac for a week, way faster os.

Re: New R8000

What I mean is from the videos Netgear put out, it showed all radios as one SSID. I assumed that it would make one SSID for 2.4 and 5.0 combined. It would then look at which one is best and move you to that. It offers you to combine 5ghz range only.

Re: New R8000

That's not what he said. The R8000 has two 5GHz radios in it (as well as the 2.4GHz) radio. The two 5GHz radios can be bonded so that only 1 SSID appears and the R8000 will manage which radio each 5GHz client uses dynamically to maximize throughput and connectivity. madhatter01 was lamenting that all three radios couldn't be bonded this way (just the two 5 GHz ones).

Was wondering if you could send me the settings of how you setup with Uverse. I have the NVG589 gateway. Really want to make sure I set mine up correctly

If gateway is also DHCP server then use as AP in AP Mode

Re: New R8000

If some ISP modem gateways can't be bridged, Try using the DMZ on the ISP modem. This should help to avoid having to use the R8000 in wired AP mode. :rolleyes:
