Re: RBK753 vs RBK753s

RBK753s : 1 year Armor subscription included

RBK753: Armor free trial period only

 

"s" probably means "subscription".

S=Security. 

Nothing different HW wise.

Orbi AC has a same thing.

Re: RBK753 vs RBK753s

Hello; I had a question about Port Triggering/Port Forwarding

is there a limit on how many you can do on the RBK573 and RBK573s?

I am looking to be able to play games on xbox live, psn, steam, origin, uplay and make sure to get reliable twitch streaming connection

Can someone confirm this for me please?

I am looking to buy a high end powerful router for my network

I have ATT Uverse and I have 120mb down and 20mb upload speeds

I hate the modem gateway unit so much; I can't stand it having no port triggering/port forwarding options

So I want to know before I purchase this either the RBK753 or RBK753s

Re: RBK753 vs RBK753s

I bought the RBK753S about 3 weeks ago at Costco.  It has the router and two satelites.  I paid on sale in the store $449.00, paid tax and bought from Netgear additional two years total coverage and Technical support. (All in total was $570.00) I turned off the Armor Protection.  I found it blocking websites I always use, and there should be a popup asking me what I want. Nope no pop up. I have Norton Security suite from Comcast.  I also have Malwarebytes Corporate.  If they FIX Armor I'll reconsider using it too.  My  RBK753S is OUTSTANDING!

Re: RBK753 vs RBK753s

All the 7 series are the same accept the the addiional RBS 752 vs 753. THe code base is the same between the 7 and 8 series. 

I don't use Port Triggering or Forwording for gaming. Just uPnP and set NAT Filter for OPEN works for two game consoles.

Re: RBK753 vs RBK753s

I port trigger for things like steam, origin, uplay, and xbox live

I always do port triggers

However I was wondering if anyone knows it has limits on how many I can do

Re: RBK753 vs RBK753s

I find the following listed on my RBRs Help Center link at the bottom of the page for PF and PT:

"Port Assignment

You can make up to 20 different port assignments for Internet services, applications, or games. In the Service Name lists, you can select a service, an application, or a game. If you do not see an item that you want to use in any of the lists, check with the software or game developer for the correct port numbers to use."
