I recently upgraded to a CM1150V and a week later to a R9000 netgear router with Kongs 38100m firmware (was previously running a AC68R with a DD-wrt Kong build form a year and a half ago). I have noticed something odd happening however and I can't seem to solve it.
After a wifi device is connected for ~ 24 hours or so, it gets into a weird situation where it shows connected, but when i try to go to any website it says i am connected to a "unsecured" location (every website turns to HTTPS from HTTP) and it tells me i need to "login" to get a secure connection, if i hit that button it redirects me to the activate page for my comcast device as if i needed to reauthorize my cable "modem" with comcast.
A disconnect/reconnect on the wifi for PC(s) clears up the issue, however on two samsung S8's the only way to clear it is a reboot of the phones.
I don't believe this is an issue with the CM1150V, because the hard wired devices work just fine. I suspect i have something set wrong on my new R9000 but not sure what, any suggestions would be appreciated, thank you.
Quick Edit, had my first wired PC show this same behavior, so I am moving away from suspecting the R9000/DD-WRT, just surprised it worked for 4 or so days on the AC-68R and then suddenly started this oddness after upgrading the router.
reactivated the modem again via the web portal will see if this clears it up.

Otherwise set your internal DNS server to use the modem as upstream server.
PPPoE is used for DSL lines; as best I know...
gomfedj is using a cable modem; which means it's already a bridge device. The only extra feature of this modem is that it handles VOIP from the ISP.
@gomfedj: This modem does support Link Aggregation (LAG) for 2gig+ service. I believe by default anything up to 1gig will use Port 1, speeds beyond that will require you to do LAG.
My guess is that you need to add some commands to the services>DNSMASQ>Additional Dnsmasq Options section to make sure you're setting the DNS servers correctly if you have the DNSMASQ option turned on under Setup>Basic Setup>Network Address Server Settings (DHCP) section.
Make sure to also add the DNS servers in Setup>Network Address Server Settings (DHCP) section and use all three; if you only spec 2, the third one will become your ISP DNS.
Use these commands under the services tab. As best I know the last server in the list is the first to be used when you use these lines(edit the DNS servers to your choice, these are the one's I use):

I've been wanting to play around with moving around some IRQ's to different CPU cores for testing latency/throughput purposes.
Here are my findings so far...
There is no ETH0 interface. It appears BS has split up the ETH0 interface to "load balance" across all 4 cores of the CPU. The R9000 has 2 switches inside and the WAN is VLAN'd to the remaining ports...based on BS's comments back around page 5 and 8 of this particular thread. You'll see the funky labeling for the TX and RX ports...
She runs fine with the above code.
When BS releases 39953+ The first two code lines can go away. (IRQ 240 & 241)
The above code puts Wan on Core 0, Lan on Core 1, 5ghz on Core 2, and 2.4ghz on Core 3. I am not using 802.11AD and so I assume the default is that it's on Core 0. It shouldn't affect anything.
The default code is that WAN and Lan are "balanced" across the 4 cores, but when you look at cat /proc/interrupts you will see that there is a slight imbalance between cores.
I'll let her run with the above code until BS pushes out the next build and report back. I don't imagine any issues.
So, as of build 39957 you don't need to do any of the above. BS implemented the changes as of build 39957+ _________________ [r9000]BS 40999 alpha (Main Router)
