I've installed a Netgear R7000 router and its WAN & LAN capabilities are solid. I have two remaining issues.

 

I flashed the router with DD-WRT firmware to prepare to installing VPN Unlimited software on the router. Even though I followed the instructions carefully, the VPN isn't working. Below are log entries that I don't understand:

 

19700101 06:21:26 W WARNING: --ns-cert-type is DEPRECATED. Use --remote-cert-tls instead.

19700101 06:21:26 N TLS_ERROR: BIO read tls_read_plaintext error

 

A lesser issue is accessing an NTFS external drive attached to the router via USB. Without any effort, it's available to an Android Smart TV (Sony Bravia) but I'm unable to access it from any Win 10 PC.

 

Thoughts?

Moved to Networking. Not directly Win10 related in any way.

I believe you will get a better chance to resolve the problem on the DD-WRT forums. I believe that router uses the Broadcom chipset.

Problem was solved merely by removing http:// prefix from my NTP Client setting. Router time is now in 2018 rather than 1970.

Curious have noticed better performance, DD-WRT can boost it up on some units.  I am interested as I am running the 7000, it is good up to about 125 feet from my house, drops off when I go any further away.


Honesty & Integrity Above All!
