    Disable WPS on R7800

    I've always heard that WPS is an attack vector into your router, so I understand why it should be disabled. I had a printer that connected to a different router through WPS, I was hoping once it was connected that WPS could then be disabled, but no. I had to reconnect it from scratch using the...

    Best and most optimal settings (Voxel & Kamoj)

    I use DNSCrypt2 pointing to the AdGuard filtered DNS. Could I replace the 192.168.1.2 with the IP address of the router to force DNS calls to other IP addresses to use the DNSCrypt DNS? Also, I assume any device configured to do DNS over HTTPS (like Firefox) can "override" this?

    R7800 bufferbloat test

    Best and most optimal settings (Voxel & Kamoj)

    DNS can be configured to use DNS over HTTPS, but not from the GUI. The AdGuard servers have the best performance for me where I live, so those are the ones I use. I configure the router to use the filtered ones, which blocks ads (and hopefully scams and malware) for every device on the network...

    Voxel Custom firmware build for R7800 v. 1.0.2.84SF

    Same here. Never had an issue with the USB and it's ALWAYS plugged into the router. It's possible that it just died before the upgrade. I use one of my old ones that's only 8GB. Before that, I had a 1GB stick that eventually died (not during an upgrade). Droidrat: What format is your stick...

    How many more years can i expect R7800 to receive updates?

    I agree. If it wasn't for Voxel's updates and enhancements, I'd be looking for a new router.

    Voxel Custom firmware build for R7800 v. 1.0.2.83SF

    I had FIOS when it was first rolled out and for many years (on and off) after that. The initial runs were using CAT5 from the ONT and you can use any router providing you didn't need TV service. You needed the Actiontec router to provide TV listings to the box (at least you did back then.) I...

    Voxel Custom firmware build for R7800 v. 1.0.2.83SF

    Yep. That's what I thought. Not much has changed since the 90s, apparently. I didn't go out of my way to configure it. I noticed that when I PuTTY into my Raspberry Pi running Ubuntu that it resolves to the IPv6, not the IPv4, address. I also notice Windows connects to my network printer with...

    Voxel Custom firmware build for R7800 v. 1.0.2.83SF

    My Lan is using IPv6. AFAIK, I'm not connecting to any computers on the Internet via IPv6. What I'd like to know is the use case for this. Are there any IPv6 exclusive sites? Are there any advantages I'm missing out.?

    My ISP has terrible IPv6 support. What am I missing out on?

    No. It was just strange behavior. The router claimed the Internet connection was good. My laptop over wifi could connect to the network, but not the Internet. My Nest cameras went offline. My tablet and two Fire TVs worked perfectly. Rebooting didn't help. Restarting the Cable modem and then...

    Voxel Custom firmware build for R7800 v. 1.0.2.82SF & v. 1.0.2.82.1SF & v. 1.0.2.82.2SF

    This is the second time I had an issue after an upgrade. It was very strange. Some devices had Internet service and others did not. The ones that didn't were mostly wireless. Rebooting didn't help. I had to restore my settings, but thankfully no need for a factory reset. I'm wondering if my...

    Voxel Custom firmware build for R7800 v. 1.0.2.82SF & v. 1.0.2.82.1SF & v. 1.0.2.82.2SF

    Had to reset the router and restore the settings from backup. It was asking to set the password. I restarted and it was fine for about a minute, then lost all network access. I couldn't even reliably connect to the router login page. Everything works great now. It sounds like this hits everyone...
