    Hi @Bully, not sure what you mean, are you asking if you can access modem from behind the Netgear XR500, if that is what you mean, then NO ?

    If not then WAN IP addresses are issued by ISP, and not advisable to change

    Have you brought the XR500 ?

    Yeah that’s what I’m asking.

    no not bought one, just thought about it.  If I could configure wan ip I thought they maybe a chance.

    Thought so, alas the XR500 has fantastic QoS and great with the Geo Filter etc, but from a settings perspective, is the same as most other Netgear Routers, ;-(

    Ok.  Looks like I’ll have to get the AC-RT86u then.  If I can find a bargain on  fleabay.

    If you do get one from fleabay, just be careful in that you purchase one with a UK plug (Not one that has a two pin plug that then plugs into a three pin UK Adaptor, there are a lot of Chinese RT-AC86u that have issues with English language options, especially when you factory reset router etc?

    Enjoy 😉
