    RE450 spams time.nist.gov and several other NTP servers constantly

    Model :

    Hardware Version :

    Firmware Version :

    ISP : [/COLOR]


    I have a RE450 repeater installed since a couple months ago, working OK, no problems.

    Recently I installed a Pihole ad blocker which happens to log every DNS access, and I have seen that the RE450 spams CONSTANTLY to several NTP and DNS servers:


    which completely degrades statistics, and possibly creates unwanted traffic to those sites.

    Is this a normal behaviour?
    Can it be avoided or filtered?

    Thanks for your support.

    RE305 also flooding network with ntp requests


    the RE305 is exhibiting the same behavior (at least in AP mode) and flooding the network with a massive amount of ntp requests (about 80 per minute, i.e. 1.3 per second). Have you found a way to turn it off? Seems to me like a bug in the firmware.

    I think it's fine, it won't affect the network.

    metered connections?

    ... you are ignoring the fact that some may have metered connections. This is a bug and will eat into your data plan - absolutely unnecessarily.
