Forum threads[edit]

Netgear CES 2018 Announcements on SmallNetBuilder

"What the XR500 has that the R7800 doesn't, however, is a Gaming Dashboard that shows

'real-time bandwidth utilization by device, ping delays, and many other parameters'
and a Geo Filter aimed at minimizing gaming lag by limiting distance to servers or
other players, getting a guaranteed local connection, and creating black/white lists
of your preferred servers. Other features include QoS for gaming device prioritization,
OpenVPN support and network monitor."
