RAX120

I have RAX 120 with 500mbps internet bandwidth and a 2 TB USB connected to usb1. Its shared on network with everyone able to access it as a network drive by my samsung tv is acting weird with this. It sometimes recognize DLNA and sometimes disconnects in between when I am watching videos on my tv from that drive. What could be the problem? Is there any bug in the router or something?

 

DLNA recognition is intermittently breaking on my tv 😞 Any suggestions?

It's a fw issue, Netgear is working on a fix.

Re: RAX120

Thank you Catalin26 for replying. Is there any temporary workaround for this issue or if that bug is public facing? Wondering how we can track progress on that issue. Thanks

Re: RAX120

There is no temporary workaround, all we can do is wait and hope that the next fw will have a fix for this problem.
I had no other choice, had to buy an android media player so I can watch my movies.

Re: RAX120

If you regularly watch movies off a plugged in USB device, i'd actually look at upgrading. 

Moving from a basic dlna server to a dedicated one makes a big difference. An old NUC will run plex/jelly fin fine and you'll be surprised at home much easier it is to use and stream from. 

I made the switch years ago and haven't looked back.

Something to contact NG support about and open up a ticket:

@ netgear hasn't been accessed since 2015. 😒 So I doubt anyone is looking here. Might contact a forum moderator though.
