    R7800; adding USB WiFi adapter

    I will be adding a USB adapter for a PC on our home network. Devices on wireless are being served by an R7800 router using Voxel firmware. Older AC USB WiFi adapters are still available, but since they are older issue, they cost as much or more than similar current AX USB WiFi adapters. I...

    Tutorial Adding custom SSID and specific VLAN (for IOT for example)

    Hello, I will describe here my experience regarding the creation of an additional SSID (on top of the main and guest ones) on a R7800 in AP mode, with @Voxel's firmware, and having it in its own VLAN. So I have my main router (no wifi) under OpenWrt. The router is connected with ethernet to...

    Voxel R7800 + Voxel, IPv6 Prefix Delegation? [resolved]

    Hello all, I'm trying to configure IPv6 DHCP now that my ISP supposedly has started v6 roll-out for their bridged modems. The only instruction they gave was to enable PD and set the PD size to /56. I have found /etc/dhcp6c.conf and understand that this file can be used to alter DHCP6 settings...

    Should I upgrade R7800 to RT-AX86U

    In the last couple of months, the number of AX clients I have grew from 2 to 7. In addition to these, I have several clients that use AC and a few that only support N 2.4Ghz (printers, security cameras). I have R7800 running OpenWRT. The house is about 1300sf on one floor. Router is located in...

    Hi. I'm using R7800 for more then 3 year. I use Netgear firmware. But lately the following happens - suddenly the lan port(s) is disconnected for 3-5 seconds and then the connection is restored. At the same time WiFi works normally. I have seen reports of similar problems on the Netgear...

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

    I bought r7800 about two years back and has been running voxels firmware almost from the beginning. It’s been rock solid (thanks @Voxel). From my understanding this router is 4 years old and netgear has stopped manufacturing it. So how many more years before it’s EOL. Is voxel still going to...

    have Intel 9560 card w/ true 160MHz; am in very congested environment--don't need speed, just a clear channel. Router that can do this? Sorry, NOOB

    I have a Dell Vostro with an Intel 9560 160 MHz card. I'm trying to understand what it is capable of and what it is not. My understanding is that the one advantage that it might have is that it could utilize a true 160MHz channel if a router supported it (and there's only three that do...

    Is a dedicated wireless backhaul better for a wireless bridge?

    I understand why it's better for "mesh" systems, which have repeaters, but my use case is to connect an AC86U as a media bridge (stock Asus firmware) to a R7800 as the main router. This AC68U will go behind the TV where I'll run Ethernet to several devices from it. Right now I have it connected...
