RAX120 and static routes


RAX120 and static routes

Bought this router today to replace my aging Draytek.  Loving it so far, but static routes don’t seem to work.  The interface sometimes throws a 400 error when setting the route (although the interface then shows it correctly).   Also it says a metric of 1 should work for directly connected interfaces but it always says invalid when I try and set metric = 1.  Has to be two or higher.  Running the latest firmware - V1.0.0.84


Tired a factory reset also but still devices on my second network can’t route via the Netgear.  They can ping the management interface, but they can't login to the management interface.  Again another 400 error.

Known issue?  It’s going back if I can’t get this working.

Re: RAX120 and static routes

Managed to work out how to telnet in and have a look a the routing tables.  They look OK.  No wondering whether its just not natting the traffic from that network out thourgh my public IP.  Anyone know the commands to check?
