  • Fixes an issue where the user unable to access SXR80 when its LAN interface is assigned with IP address.

Known Issues:

  • Removes remote access for security reasons.
    Workaround: Consider becoming a NETGEAR Insight subscriber so that you can enjoy remote management with built-in security features like automated security alert notifications, two-factor authentication, Single Sign-On (SSO), and Multi Pre-Shared Key (MPSK).
  • After updating the router firmware, existing clients can be steered to the router because the wireless readiness in the router is faster than the wireless readiness in the satellite.
    Workaround: Connected clients might notice slower throughput or a weaker signal, which resolves when the user roams or reconnects.
  • WPA3-Enterprise might not work with iPhone 11 (supports 802.11ax) and above on iOS 14 and above.
    Workaround: Do not use WPA3-Enterprise.
  • The device UI can be accessed via the default VLAN network only.
    Workaround: Connect to a WiFi network that uses the default VLAN profile when you want to access the device UI.
  • When the SXR80 router is connected to multiple SXS30 and SXS80 satellites, it is possible that the SXS30 satellite cannot ping the SXR80 router, and the bar LED lights magenta. However, clients can still access the SXS30 satellite and the Internet.
    Workaround: Reboot the SXS30 satellite and the SXR80 router.
  • When the SXR80 router is connected to multiple SXS30 and SXS80 satellites, wireless clients that connect to wireless network 3 with the VLAN feature enabled cannot access the Internet.
    Workaround: Reload the wireless configuration or disable the VLAN feature on wireless network 3.
