I see ICMP is still filtered for IPv6, possible to add an option for it for it not being filtered - IPv6 relies on ICMP - thanks

More powerful signal


I agree. Wifi as a WAN would be a great add.

I was expecting proper dhcp server options, I have no backup strategy or recovery options now since buying this router because i can't tell the dhcp server where is the next server.

This is basic networking stuff that a router should support out of the box.

To be clear i request boot option 66 to be added to the dhcp server options. In fact i see no reason why we don't have the same options that dsm6 currently enjoys.

Thanks

I have a new RT2600ac and this suggestion:

In Network Center, Smart WAN, Policy Route (and everywhere else), please enable the use of a MAC Address instead of an IP Address. Using only an IP Address for custom routing is far less flexible and imposes a lot of extra time/labor to use the feature(s).

Multiple VLAN Support in router RT2600ac

Postby lordvacano » Thu May 18, 2017 1:51 am

I would like to be able to create vlan interfaces in Synology router RT2600ac. This would allow segmentation of the local network for security reasons.

I have created a new user account on the RT2600ac to allow Synology to obtain remote access to the Router for some IPTV bug squishing. However, there is no way in the user account settings to set that account as Admin... As such I had to re-enable to admin account for them to access it.

So can there be a way to set accounts as "Admin" in Control Panel > User?

Hi,

I just joined the Synology world with a NAS and router purchase. The router was a replacement for an aging Netgear Nighthawk, and I’m glad I made the change. DS Router app alone is so much better (features and interface) than the Genie app. Despite its terrible web browser interface, the Nighthawk had some good features that I would like to see incorporated into future versions of SRM. In fairness, a few items on this list didn’t work well in Netgear. Hopefully, I’m not the only person looking for these items.

+ More flexible and powerful MAC address restrictions (simple selection to restrict any new devices from joining; or better yet a message delivered to your phone whenever a new device is requesting access)

+ Provide usage threshold warnings and notifications (my ISP has a monthly usage cap, so it would be great to see month-to-date or “cap drawdown” charts/tables/reports…perhaps under the pull-down menus in network center -> traffic control -> monitor). In general, the reports are very good already, so just want to build on the foundation.

+ Ability to hide the SSIDs for guest networks, just like the regular one.

+ Ability to use 1Password, in addition to Google Authenticator, for 2-step verification. 1Password already allows one-time, time-based codes. I used it with Amazon, and it is nice to have everything in one app

+ Offer Let’s Encrypt certificate integration with the existing Synology DDNS, just like your diskstation products. It’s a great way to differentiate your products, especially for users that want security but don’t know or don’t want to manage the details of the SSL process.

+ As noted by others, please continue to enhance (e.g., access to web history, traffic info., previously run reports) the DS Router app.

Remove or allow turning off the "feature" that triggers "Restricted" Youtube access if any Parental Control is invoked at all, even with Youtube specifically whitelisted.

Can this "feature" be turned off somewhere if I SSH in?

Thanks!

I would like to request the following features.

1. Web Browser- I would like a fully functional web browser to be added as a feature. If I need to check on a site, I could copy and paste the link within the router itself and site comes up. Please add a web browser.

2. Network Map- It would be nice if the router could see the other computers on the network regardless of the connection. If there was a network map or network neighborhood or some way the router could discover computers on the same network and display the name of the computer. I know the router can broadcast itself on the network and other computers can see it.

3. Notifications- I know this feature does exist but it doesn't include device notifications. I would like to get an instant notification (email, text) when someone tries to join the wireless. I would like to know John's iPod has joined the wireless or Mary's laptop has joined the wireless. Please improve the notification system.

These are a few features I would like to request to be added or the feature needs improvement.

Hello Synology Developers,

for the Syno Router it would be great to have an DECT option

Thanks Martin
