R7500 — Nighthawk X4 AC2350 v1 SMBv1

Hello,

I'm owner R7500v1 many years. I know, that router is old and not supported, but it still doing it's job well. Latest firmware 1.0.0.130 is quiet stable. I have few comments to it, but most important is file sharing on external disk connected to router. Shares are still at SMB v1 and this beginning be a problem. Windows silently switch of SMBv1 (yes it is possible to turn on, but manualy), in Linux Samba v4.11 drop support for SMBv1.

Also is not possible make Windows Image Backup, because SMBv1.

I'm searching for ddwrt, opewrt but there is always problem with 5Ghz wifi radio.

@netgear  it is possible make one more version of firmware where will be turned on at least SMB v2?

At any other, do you know any alternative firmware, which working on that router at 100% (no command line hacks and editing some configuration files manually).

Thanks

Alexander

Don't hold your breath for an update for SMB. Even the newer routers still use SMB1. 

Isn't Netgear wonderful?
