    I can't speak for lets Encrypt but for me since the cert doesn't expire until 2028 renewal is not really important.

    90% sure though it will renew.

    It does have a few issues that's why I never upgraded to it. Will wait to see what 384.10 brings when released.

    You are using a fan to cool your system, right?

    Possible that he has a fan. I have 2° more without fan and without overclocking.
    The R7000 is on a pad for notebooks, but I only put the fan on when the room temp becomes too high in summer.

    Yes it sits on a laptop cooling pad all year around.

    Hi David1, just wondering how's your experiencing with QoS went? I flashed stock FW to experience the QoS and it sorted my surveillant camera streaming issue but the webUI is very slow so I'm looking to flash back to vortex fw if the QoS works and stable? Thanks

    Lets Encrypt sends an email at least a week before, with a link, when you need to renew for free DDNS. Takes less than 30 seconds to follow the link, ignore the upsell and click OK to renew

    I think you meant free SSL (vice DDNS). My preference would be to fire and forget. I'm not a fan of the periodic reminders to update, whether DDNS or an SSL Cert. I'll look for a script we can run certbot on the R7000. It automatically renews i.e. fire and forget. The way things should be.

    Apologies if these have already been mentioned, but am seeing one or two issues with the 384.9 release for the R7000
    1: I use a time switch to reboot everything at about 2am .. this is an old legacy issue I had with the NG firmware but it has shown up an oddity with the Merlin. After one or two power off reboots, the LEDs go into stealth mode and need to be turned back on in the Tools Settings tab. No biggie but.
    2: if I enable access to the router to two fixed IP addresses at work, , when I get to work, I can access the router and its menu;s with no problem , BUT I loose all access when on the LAN (or WLAN) so I have to do a Factory reset (via the reset button ) and re-load the saved .cfg file.
    Anyone any ideas why ?

    Hi, sorry for late reply, its working well, some sites when i download from are not being catorgorized properly, but the majority are, if any devices are updating windows my gaming ping is unaffected which is great, VPN server does not seem to be working though but havent looked at that as i cannot use it due to being behind a CG-NAT.
    As for the webUI i also found it slow with other versions of the firmware, but i am overclocking to 1200 which seems to have helped alot

    edit: Am using FreshJR QOS fyi

    Yes its working,works slightly better than the original, even have the custom page on
    latest 8.8, used easy method, just ssh into router and run

    curl "https://raw.githubusercontent.com/FreshJR07/FreshJR_QOS/master/FreshJR_QOS.sh" -o /jffs/scripts/FreshJR_QOS --create-dirs && curl "https://raw.githubusercontent.com/FreshJR07/FreshJR_QOS/master/FreshJR_QoS_Stats.asp" -o /jffs/scripts/www_FreshJR_QoS_Stats.asp && sh /jffs/scripts/FreshJR_QOS -install

    If necessary, you can generate your pixelserv-tls cert to be valid longer than 10 years. :)

    I am having an issue with the 2.4 Ghz network appearing offline.
    I updated to NG this week. I am on R7000_384.9_0. Following the instructions, I updated to
    380.70 then 384.9 (using the .trx file IIRC because it was an upgrade) then did a factory reset.

    The router itself can't see any 2.4 GHz networks in the site survey. My phone can't see the 2.4 GHz network. All my legacy devices are offline.

    Other than the SSID and the password, all the settings are default.

    Any ideas?

    Did you try to flash 384.8_2 ?

    Am I the only one who cannot get the .chk file to flash on a R7000V2? everytime I try it tells me it needs to be a .img file. Trying to flash from a Mac and getting this error on multiple browsers. Did Netgear change something? If I can't get passed this, I cant run Merlin on this thing, which I really, really want to do

    You mean the R7000P? It's different hardware to the R7000. As far as I know, there's a DD-WRT firmware that will flash to the R7000P but that's all.

    At the login page, it says r7000V2 so that is all I know it as. I'll look at the stickers to see if I can get more details. Latest and all prior Netgear firmwares I try to flash give me the same error (.....must be a *.img file).... And yet, when I updated the firmware to the latest Netgear, through the search for an updated firmware and automatic update, that flash worked fine. But the I go out to their site and they are .chk files (in the manual download from the site).

    I'm an idiot, this is my buddies and I used to have an R7000. This is an R7500V2. My mistake as they look identical

    I really just want to set it up for my buddy as a repeater bridge as this is his old router and is running Merlin on his RT-AC86U. That's why I was pursuing Merlin, thinking this was a 7000. Not that its a 7500, I am guessing I will just set up DD-WRT on it as it seems pretty straightforward to set it up as a Repeater Bridge. This will help cover my buddies huge house. My 86U covers mine fine, but he needs something to extend wireless in the far corners of the house.
