RAX29 UDP Port Forwarding

RAX29 UDP Port Forwarding

I've recently had to upgrade our router. I have a Nighthawk RAX29 with the latest 1.0.9.92_1 firmware.

 

I have an Unraid server configured with a WireGuard VPN. This worked flawlessly on our old router. The router doesn't appear to be port forwarding the UDP connection. I also have a TCP port forwarded that's working fine. When I go in to edit my WireGuard port it shows it as TCP even though I've previously selected UDP. Even if I select TCP/UDP when I go back in to edit it still shows TCP is selected.

I'm running V1.0.9.92_1 on RAX30 and encountered the same problem.  No matter I chose TCP/UDP or UDP in custom services, the setting always reverted back to TCP!!!

I had to switch browsers. Safari on macOS was not working. I can’t remember which browser ended up working for me so just try different browsers.

Many Netgear manuals say things like:

 

"This recovery process is supported in Internet Explorer, Firefox, and Chrome browsers, but not in the Safari browser."

 

Not sure what else it affects.

Thanks for your useful advices.  I finally set it using Edge on Windows after trying all different browsers on MacOS, iOS and Android.
