    I see a lot less work and especially FAR LESS RISK in my little project, than opening up the router and tearing it apart just for a thermal pad...

    However, I must say, I did not think of the laptop cooling pad... Then again, I think, I have much better results with my solution... Almost 20 degrees C difference!

    dude, its an external laptop cooling pad. Not a thermal pad you place IN the r7000.
    It sits under the router and plugs/powers off the usb port.
    No muss, no fuss and no modding to anything.
    Its for laptops that you sit on your lap in a chair to use.

    Back to check my R7000 firmware version, its 378.56_2, the firmware is way behind :), I'm using it as an Access Point (my main router is pfSense), Is it worth to upgrade it to the latest NG version? What kind of steps it would be involved considering the firmware was very old?

    slidermike Addicted to LI Member

    Worth it to upgrade is speculative.
    If it works fine for you and meets expectations then I don't see a reason to update but that's just my opinion.

    As for the steps, its laid out fairly straight forward in the OP.

    I really cannot seem to resolve this. I used Kong DD-WRT for years so that I could run PIA vpn service on my router. It started acting up when I moved and switched to Charter from Comcast. Every so often, internet goes out. Sometimes only for 5 mins, sometimes it requires a reboot to get it back up. I thought DD-WRT was too complicated for me so I switched to this great, more simple, Xwrt. At first, all looked good, now it's back to random disconnects. I'm on a Netgear r7000 and a couple things changed when I move. First Charter made me use their modem, secondly my pc is too far away for wired connection so is connected wirelessly. Maybe someone can look at my log and help me out? Thank you!

    I have QoS setup on my R7000, running Adaptive QoS on fq_codel. Set to 96Mbps down and 30Mbps Up and Im getting an A on Bufferbloat via DSLResports Speedtest.

    The issue that I have is that file transfers over my internal network to my server are always under 3MB/s with QoS on. Turn it off and they go 30+MB/s. Transfers over the internal network to a NAS box go up to 50MB/s on or off.

    Anyone shed some light on why this is happening over my internal network and so far, only to this device?

    UberSuave, what exactly are you asking help figuring out?
    You mention vpn, Charter modem & long wired/wireless pc connections to your router. Along with random disconnects.
    For me it doest appear clear what issue is being investigated.
    Do your random drops hit your WAN or vpn or is it a lan drop issue?
    How can a run be too long for a wire but work for wireless?
    I mean wired Ethernet 1gb & under can get 100 meters per spec.
    That's probably a side topic & not really what your after.
    I suspect your complaining about random WAN disconnects but again if you can be more clear that might help.
    Thank you
     
  11. slidermike

    slidermike Addicted to LI Member

    Im going to guess that your lan traffic is hitting your routers FW which in turn is slowing it down (because it is being processed by the cpu).
    Can you stick a switch inbetween the routers lan ports and your lan clients?
    If so, you might see the lan to lan traffic NOT make it up to the router. This will speed up your lan to lan traffic.
    Though ideally, you shouldn't have to do that.
    Another suggestion I have is to make sure your QoS configuration is only assigned to your wan interface NOT the lan interface.
    See if that helps.
    All QoS traffic goes through the cpu which slows down traffic flow.
    Good luck!

    Merlin just released 384.6. Me too ;)
    • Updated GPL to 384_21045
    • Added option to enable DNS rebind protection, available on the DHCP page.
    • Updated dnsmasq to 2.80test2-17-g51e4eee, nano to 2.98 and curl to 7.60.0.
    • Added AES-*-GCM ciphers to the OpenVPN legacy cipher list.
    • Added support for the -p switch to netstat. This has been integrated into the Network Tools page, so now netstat will also report which process is currently tied to a specific port/socket.
    • When enabled, DNSSEC validation is now enforced on DNS replies (due to a change in dnsmasq's behaviour). If you are no longer able to do do name resolution on various domains while DNSSEC is enabled, it means your upstream DNS servers do not support DNSSEC. You should either disable it, or switch to DNSSEC compatible servers.

    I have done a bit of searching and all the results indicate either QoS and IPv6 is at fault. I have both of these disabled but the problem persists. How do I determine what is causing it?

    Need a favor, can ayone running latest 384.6 FW confirm if both CTF+FA are enabled or only CTF? Just curious...thanks for the assist

    I read in order to enable FA you have enable jumbo frame under switch control. I wld test this but i dont have my R7000 at this time

    I have CTF and FA on. It shows as such in the Tools menu.

    No jumbo frames enabled. But no spanning tree protocol and no Asus features.

    I know some folks have used the R7000 with a Aimesh as a node. Anyone had luck using the R7000 as the main router vs a node? I tried using it as the main router with my RT-AC68R (node) and finds as a node but can never sync together. If i use the AC68R as the main router, it can easily find the R7000 as a node and connects without any issues.

    You need to add a local (destination) port to the line.
    You gave the outside but not the inside translation.

    Yup,
    Do you have a remote device to test those IPs through?
    Also, even though you aren't supposed to need it, try putting the source in like this
    0.0.0.0
    See if that helps.

    Do you have a VPN connection setup on the router too?
    If so, can we see the policies at the bottom of the page?

    Lastly, is the modem just a modem or a router modem combo?
    Is said modem in bridge mode or not?

    Do any of you guys access your router via https?
    Wonder if I should enable the option to make it more "secure".

    It is more secure but I would still leave this setting below set to NO. Just in case you are thinking of switching for remote access.

    Enable Web Access from WAN: YES?/NO

    Also if you enable Https

    Remember to add: 8443 after the URL

    or you won't be able to access it.

    If you have to worry about the security of your internal network you have more serious issues.

    And yeah, if you enable it be prepared to be locked out of your router till you can Google it on your phone. Not that I know from personal experience :)

    Hi slidermike,

    Didn't see your response til now. My issue is with WAN disconnects. Ignore VPN for now. I set up my network from my PC in my bedroom and my router is in the living room. This is the first time I have not had router in the same room to have it wired connect. I didn't know if that could cause a problem. Anyway.... I have got notice that DHCP is not running correctly and the time is always off. Dates in my log are all over the place!

    I have a big (I think) problem, which I am unable to solve...

    I wanted to try something else than xwrt so I flashed stock firmware which is posted in the OP.

    My problem is, I am stuck to stock firmware; I cannot flash nor ddwrt, not even update to latest stock or even go back to xwrt with correct .chk file. Of course, telnet is now also inaccessible, I tried telnetenable program... The router IS NOT bricked, it holds the configured values if I configure it and then reboot, because Terijan01 helped me flash another CFE in the past, but it seems it still does not work correctly... There is however NO WAY to update or change the firmware.


    What do you recommend? Any ideas?


    Thank you very, very much guys!

    OK, I think I might have a solution for those, where "telnetenable" program was not working.


    I tried EVERYTHING in past 2 days and this is how I got it to work... Somehow...

    The problem for me was, that telnetenable program did not work, because my routers MAC was CHANGED!!! I had everything connected to a computer via ethernet and JTAG and then I noticed in Putty when router was booting, that MAC is totally different than it should be (bottom of the router). I wrote down the MAC, tried telnetenable from post #5415 and it actually worked, I could connect to router via telnet. Executed commands (header, MAC, serial, everything was screwed up) as in post #5420 and then I could flash ONLY kongs ddwrt to a router. Stock or xwrt firmware was STILL a NO GO!!! Maybe someone knows why?! Header, SN, MAC were changed back to normal!

    From ddwrt I went directly to xwrt, I am thinking of never going back to stock, unless I sell the router. In that case, I now have the WHOLE procedure written down :D:D:D...

    Thanks Terijan01 for the flashing steps. Again... :D

    P.S. It looks like, the CFE flashing, where you helped me did not work, the CFE was still changed.(?)

    In short: Get the current MAC from your router, the "telnetenable" program does work with R7000!

    Hello all - I'm having trouble upgrading from 384.5. I upgraded from 384.4 to 384.5 no problem, but now I'm stuck at this screen - I'm the only Router on the network, but the only way I can upload is right under the "AiMesh Router" in the screenshot attached. Operation Mode is 'Wireless router mode / AiMesh Router mode (Default)'. What's happening is, I upload the new firmware using the upload option shown in my screenshot, the firmware uploads and shows the update screen and everything - reboots, but when it comes back up it stays on version 384.5 instead of the 384.6.trx fw I just uploaded. Tried it multiple times, even did a fatory reset but it did the same thing. Any ideas? Thanks in advance!

    edit:I disabled AiMesh and tried it again - no dice - the upgrade screen went back to 'normal' (before aimesh was implemented) but it still is going through the update (bar increments for about 3 minutes) only to reboot still at 384.5.

    I'm guessing it's because your running in a mesh mode right now.
    If you reset to default setting then without configuring any settings does that make a difference.

    Even w/ aimesh disabled (and factory reset), same behavior. I have a second r7000 (it hasn't been turned on in over 2 months) I'm going to try and update (it's still on 384.4). I've no idea what's the problem w/ my main.

    384.6 does not seem as stable as 384.5 for me: sometimes I get a notification on my Android : "This wireless network does not have an internet connection" Did not get that on 384.5.
    These are extra logging entries that I see (running in AP mode)
    Don't know if that is related. If I flash back to 384.5, those lines are gone.

    please ignore my remarks, found that these logging lines can be ignored.

    After flashing 384.6, I am completely unable to flash backl to stock or anything else. Trying to flash a .chk file isn't working and .trx is always returning a unsuccessful attempt.

    I'm fresh out of ideas to fix this...

    Edit : Yes, I did try both back to stock files in original post but it's still not working. I also tried flashing stock from Netgear and Tomato and everything I've done was after a factory reset of the device.

    It seems trying a few times after reset apparently worked. Not sure why or how but you can ignore this post :)

    Hi there

    Just want to report that after the latest update to v384.6, I had issues with IPv6.
    I'm running stateless IPv6 with prefix delegation and when connected, all my clients assigned an IPv6 but lost them again as soon as their valid timer reached zero. So for some reason the valid timer is not renewed and the clients lose IPv6 connectivity again after ~10mins.

    A rollback to v384.5 restored correct IPv6 functionality.

    I'm currently using IPv6 and stateless and don't think I've seen this.

    All my wired devices have a static IP and wireless all use DHCP.

    My Main desktop which is wired and Static IP never loses its IPv6.

    After checking my Android phone which is using DHCP and wireless IPv6 seems to be fine there also.

    Also when you mention "valid timer" are you talking your DHCP Lease time in the lan tab which is at 84600 by default.

    Always set the channel. Auto is never the best.

    Try different channels...

    I personally can not connect to 5 GHz signal with my Nexus 6P, if it is set as auto or to high. Setting it to 116 did the trick, setting it anywhere higher and the phone does not see it anymore...

    Choose a channel based on your country and what the device supports.
    Not every country uses the same channels and most devices are sold in a region with that regions channels being supported.

    Can someone please school me on the DNS Filtering feature found under the Parental Control settings?
    What's the main difference from setting, say OpenDNS Family Shield, on the WAN versus using the DNS Filtering option?

    If I choose to turn on DNS Filtering, would that run a different DNS per client while leaving the WAN DNS as a default?
    Like, on the WAN to have: 1.1.1.1 < CloudFare
    DNSFiltering under Parental Controls: 208.67.222.123 < OpenDNS Family Shield

    Someone correct me if I'm wrong please. Thanks.

    First time XWRT user here, and I just flashed the v384.5 on my R7000. I noticed that there is no Traffic Monitoring/Manager, QoS, and Parental Control page available. Is it normal? This is the main reason I am trying the XWRT firmware.
    I already did a factory reset after flashing.

    Sorry for my late response.

    My clients all use DHCPv6 with stateless auto-configuration.
    Yes, I'm talking about the DHCP lease timer which is also 84600secs on my device, but for IPv6 it's another value. The output of the command "ip address show INTERFACE" on my linux machine prints a valid time of around 600secs on my IPv6 address. I guess this is because of stateless auto-configuration (SLAAC).

    UPDATE: I flashed again the latest firmware and everything seems to work as intended now. Made no changes at the configuration and no idea what the issue was before but hey, it works now :)

    I am missing the tabs for Traffic manager and a few others, I searched the fourm and found that I could access the pages with /Main_TrafficMonitor_realtime.asp I was just wondering if there was a way to get the tabs back? I am firmware 384.6

    Thanks

    Wow, I guess I should have just looked at the last page and read instead of using the "search" by bad SMH in shame
