NETGEAR Contacts?

I’m wondering if someone has any contacts at Netgear they would be willing to forward some information to.  While working with their devices one of my colleagues discovered some poor behavior of their embedded DNSMASQ, such as returning REFUSED to DNS queries.


$ dig +tcp

; <<>> DiG 9.8.3-P1 <<>> +tcp
;; global options: +cmd
;; Got answer:
;; ->>HEADER<<- opcode: QUERY, status: REFUSED, id: 33649

;		IN	A

;; MSG SIZE  rcvd: 33

where a UDP query passes just fine.

This is one of a few issues we’ve uncovered, so hoping for someone who can work on building some fixed firmware.

Device in question:

Netgear wnr2000v3
v1.1.2.10 (latest on website)

Is there a mailing list that exists for the purposes of discussing these types of CPE device issues?
