I installed the FVS318G about 6 weeks ago, with the latest firmware, because I wanted gigbit LAN ports. After the customary configuration modifications from default settings, I put it into production on my home network. For the past 4 weeks it ran fine, until a week ago when I started to experience strange and intermittent DNS problems. Then it failed completely today in that the DHCP DNS proxy services went down completely. All my connected devices had IP connectivity and ping, but no DNS until I reconfigured all platforms with manual DNS lookups to Google DNS services (220.127.116.11). This is not good, and not something I have seen before.
From the start, I really did not like this new device. The unit's firewall throughput is lousy at only 25Mbps (same as the much older FVS318v3). The design, which in the older models had the LAN ports in the back and the link lights in the front, now have both the ports and the LEDs are in the front, a design that I do not like at all. The management GUI has changed substantially for the newer model, and not for the better. They changed the AC plug design so that the prongs are sideways compared to what their orientation used to be, and they take up maximum space on my power strip. As a matter of fact, the brick takes up so much space that I had to use an AC extender cord and could not plug the brick directly into my power strip like I used to be able to do with the older models. Even the trademark Netgear blue color has been replaced with some kind of dark gray color. This new FVS318G unit does not seem to be designed and manufactured by the same Netgear organization as of old. All in all, this new unit is completely different from the older units and it really really SUCKS.
Since the unit is now all of 6 weeks old it is past the 30 day deadline for returning it to Amazon. So when this new unit failed I decided to just throw it away rather than keep it and try to trouble-shoot it and fix it. It is just not worth my time and effort in that I really really dislike everything about this unit. $110 down the drain.
I have been a loyal Netgear customer for a lot of years but not any more. Bye bye Netgear ... you really screwed up here.
Tips for upgrading the firmware:
1. Access the router GUI through the web browser and see what version firmware is installed.
2. Visit Netgear support website and download every firmware update from the *CURRENT firmware version all the way to the newest firmware.
3. ***Extract each firmware to an unzipped folder.
4. Disconnect WAN port from the internet.
5. Plug ethernet cable from PC to LAN ports 1-8 (choose one).
6. Reenter web browser GUI and navigate to update section under the Administrative tab
7. Click browse for the firmware file and select the ISO image inside the folder that was unzipped earlier starting with the very next sequential firmware update. Do not navigate on computer while the update is in process as it may freeze the device. When it is done loading the switch will restart as indicated by its LEDs. Be sure not to disconnect the Ethernet cable.
8. Repeat the process for each firmware update until all are installed.
9. ***If the update stalls and fails to upload due to corrupt download, factory reset the switch at least three times allowing it to fully boot between each attempt. Once complete redownload the firmware update that it locked up on and repeat aforementioned steps. Mine locked up because of bad download and resulted in bricking the switch. I solved the problem by doing exactly as described herein. The switch is rocking and rolling with the latest updates and configurations.
*Many people complaining about bandwidth on the WAN port. They obviously forgot its a stateful firewall router that has to analyze TCP/UDP packets entering the network. Based on the configurations (i.e. level of security), the bandwidth will vary.
