Here is a list of Hidden Pages in Netgear Routers, some of which I gathered from scouring the filesystem through telnet, note that some maybe be Broadcom/Qualcomm specific so not all pages will show up for everyone:

usage example: 192.168.1.1(or just use routerlogin.net)/hidden_info.htm (replace 192.168.1.1 with your router IP if it differs from default)

hidden_POT.htm
hidden_channel_wifi_coexist.htm
hidden_channel_wifi_test.htm
debug.htm
(Practically all models)
hidden_info.htm (QUALCOMM chipset based routers/modems only??? (RAX120 / R7800 / D7800 etc & earlier models?)
hidden_manual_set_ant.html
WiFi_HiddenPage.htm
(BROADCOM chipset based routers/modems only: ie RAX200 / RAX80 / R8500 / R8000 / R7000 / D8500 / D7000 etc & earlier models?)
hidden_11ad_setting.htm (R9000)
hidden_cpu.htm
Thermal_FAN.htm
QOS_prru_main.htm



If anyone finds anymore please mention them. I will add images/descriptions when I get time.

Here is an experimental one to enable QoS for the uplink only:

QOS_prru_main.htm

FYI, these QoS rules come from Trend Micro

I've attached some files from the R9000 source code if you'd like to do some cross referencing re QoS.

Just checked these on my RAX80 and I like the debug_htm. I wish they showed the memory and cpu load in the GUI itself.

@avtella

Please post a screenshot of the debug.htm hidden page for the RAX120.

I am looking for support for 802.11k - Smart Roaming. I know the R7800 (inside debug.htm only) and R9000 (officially, inside Wireless Settings) support it.

Would you mind posting screenshots of the debug.htm and hidden_cpu.htm hidden pages for the RAX80?

The RAX80 is actually supposed to have dual quad-core CPUs:

"Nighthawk AX8 is powered by a 64-bit 1.8GHz quad-core processor designed to transfer multi-gigs of data with almost zero CPU load.An additional quad-core co-processor handles all Multi-Gig LAN-WAN traffic, ensuring the main processor is available for all otherapplications. Enjoy smoother Ultra-HD 4K video streaming and gaming without interruptions."

This can not only be found in their data sheet for the RAX80, but on the product website as well. It seems to not be a typo...

I know the R6700 shows four cores on the debug.htm hidden page although it only has a dual-core processor. Therefore, Netgear is also showing the status of its offload/co-processors in this particular scenario.

Want to use a really cool speed test for testing your Internet line quality, etc?

http://mcssjc.visualware.com/myspeed/myspeed_h5line_appspeed.html

Here's a more in-depth test:

http://speedtest.phonepower.com/default

Yet another test:

http://vac.visualware.com

But wait, first you need to install BCS.

What is the BCS? It's a client side application that enables accurate browser testing.

Why the BCS? Browser testing alone can't support VoIP, SIP, Route testing and more.

Install the client:

http://www.visualware.com/bcs/index.html

After installing the client, check to make sure everything is working properly:

http://www.visualware.com/bcs/support/connectivity.html

Now the first three links should work properly...

-Enjoy!

Sorry, that last post has absolutely nothing to do with Netgear routers, lol...

I got carried away sharing my bookmarks :p

I posted the debug pages as requested, from the RAX80/120. Neither have a hidden_cpu.htm.

Which do you feel is the better router ATM? The RAX80 or RAX120? Based on software features, compatibility, and stability... not based on specs alone.

You might telnet into each router to see what's available:

telnet 192.168.x.x
cd /www
ls *hidden*.htm* -l (lists all the "hidden" pages)
ls *.htm* -l (lists ALL .htm/.html pages)

For example, here's the output from my R9000:

[email protected]:/www# ls *hidden*.htm* -l
-rwxrwxr-x 1 root root 3063 Apr 13 2016 UPG_check_version_hidden.htm
-rw-rw-r-- 1 root root 450 Apr 13 2016 green_download_hidden_server_wait.htm
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 3757 Feb 21 11:28 hidden_11ad_setting.htm
-rwxrwxr-x 1 root root 476 Apr 13 2016 hidden_POT.htm
-rwxrwxr-x 1 root root 2838 Apr 13 2016 hidden_channel_wifi_coexist.htm
-rwxrwxr-x 1 root root 2281 Apr 13 2016 hidden_channel_wifi_test.htm
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 454 Feb 21 11:28 hidden_cpu.htm
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 2631 Feb 21 11:28 hidden_cpu_status.htm
-rwxrwxr-x 1 root root 8065 Feb 21 11:28 hidden_info.htm
-rwxrwxr-x 1 root root 3816 Apr 13 2016 hidden_manual_set_ant.html
-rw-rw-r-- 1 root root 5334 Apr 13 2016 hidden_server.htm

You can find some really interesting stuff this way. For example, GuestManage.html brings up a page to enable Guest Management:

I attached the available web pages for the RAX80 and RAX120 in the first post as text files, basically the telnet output. I forgot to upload it in the last two weeks so thanks for the reminder. Telnet was missing in the RAX80's latest update so I had to fall back to the previous firmware, temporarily to get the output. I literally just copied the entire output lol so be prepared.

Thanks, but unfortunately the contents were uneventful :(

It seems the RAX80 and RAX120 have a long way to go. They seem to contain a lot less software features than "normal".

The R9000 is feature rich in comparison, but it wasn't always like that.

Netgear usually pushes out their new consumer routers before the firmware is stable. IME the firmware gets rather stable after their 8-10th firmware release. This takes about six months. They also tend to add several features during the first 18 months after release. Of which, at least three or four are major features (i.e. QoS, 802.11k, DFS, etc.).

In regards to the RAX120, WAN aggregation, a 5G multi-gig port, 12 streams, etc. are huge, and IMHO a perfect balance (unlike the 10G SFP+ port on the R9000).

With the hidden_info.htm you can see that the 2.4GHz band coexist with a nother channel lets say you choose CH 11 then the coexist CH are 1, is there a way to turn OFF the coexist CHs?
