#130205 DumaOS - Development Update

Posted by Netduma Iain on 16 November 2016 - 04:10 PM

Hello to old friends and hopefully new ones I'll get to know. Sorry I've been away for so long, developing version 2.0 (named DumaOS) has been a mammoth task.


As a reminder, DumaOS is the next version of the software. We've been working on this for over 6 months now and it is a huge transformation from our older versions. It will be a free upgrade to all NETDUMA R1 customers.


We had planned on releasing DumaOS this Autumn. However it is been a much larger task than we originally foresaw. As we've gone through development we've realised just how many more features we can add so we've taken the time to do this now to make the OS as great as it can be for you guys. We're very proud of it and we think it blows even our current router software out of the water (which already blew the other routers out the water :P ).


The new timeline is below. No doubt some of you may be disappointed and that is fair. But please beware that 1) the upgrade is free of charge 2) we'd much rather give you a stable version with awesome features than a rushed version which is buggy.

  • Mid December - Early closed beta: this will be just be a handful of users because most people would not be willing to use this software in this state because it will be a downgrade from your current versions
  • Mid January - Coal Mine beta: a much more developed version of the OS which, like with previous upgrades, will be available to all the Canaries in the coal mine to test
  • Mid February - Open beta: a public beta which you can all apply to be a part of. This version will have all the major new features ready for testing (including anti-jitter, anti-spike and much much more that we can't reveal yet!)
  • Full Launch: sometime after the Open Beta, dependent on feedback

I'm feeling pretty confident with these deadlines but you never know with software. It could end up being before or after but there shouldn't be any major surprises.


Thanks so much for supporting NETDUMA all this time, we're really confident you're gonna love DumaOS as it truly transforms routers in a way not seen before.


Below is a little teaser. It is the least interesting feature but gives a lot of clues about what’s is to come. Have fun speculating ;)

PS look forward to being involved in the forum much more as we start the closed beta.

#88416 Major NETDUMA Upgrade Now Available (v 1.03.6)

Posted by Netduma Fraser on 08 February 2016 - 05:48 PM

Please follow all instructions very carefully.



If you are on a version lower than 1.03.5m please do not upgrade yet. If you are on 1.03.6h YOU DO NOT NEED TO UPGRADE. You are on the latest version. The only difference between g & h is an updated EULA. There is no feature difference.

To check the version you are on, scroll to the bottom of any page on your Netduma router's interface. 
If you choose to upgrade without contacting us you could completely break your router. You will then need to pay for the router to be returned to our office in the UK and then sent back to your home. DO NOT ATTEMPT TO UPGRADE BY DOING EACH UPGRADE IN SEQUENCE (NB: the reason for charging you for this potential return is we have not charged for any upgrades (because we love our user community) but we cannot be penalised for people not reading clear instructions).


Instead, comment here saying you are on an older version than 1.03.5 and have remote support ticked (found in >settings >miscellaneous) and that you want to upgrade. We will then access your router and change settings so you can download the upgrade safely. Once we have told you it is safe to upgrade DO NOT REBOOT BEFORE UPGRADING.  




1. Upgrade Instructions

  • Download the upgrade here
  • Go to the Upgrade section on the Netduma interface
  • Choose Advanced
  • Ensure preserve settings & check version are ticked.
  • Click browse & navigate to where you downloaded the upgrade file and click open.
  • Click upgrade, it will take around 3 minutes. Please do not unplug the router during this time.
  • If you are wired to your computer or connected via Wifi (and won't automatically connect to another Wifi name) you will be taken to the home interface screen when the upgrade has been completed.
  • If the rare event that you get an error message please contact us and do not turn off the router. Do not worry, it just requires some help from our team.

If you already have the beta version (1.03.6g) you do not need to upgrade. If you have purchased the router after June 1st you will have version 1.03.6h, DO NOT DOWNGRADE TO .6g! .6h doesn't have any new features.


2. Geo-filter Changes

  • If you are a Halo 5 Xbox player there is now a new service to select "Halo 5" please use this if you are going to play the game. Otherwise use the standard service as usual. 
  • "Enable/disable" button is now a check box, so ensure it is checked to be sure it is on.
  • Low Resolution Map check box is for browsers such as Safari that don't render the state/country lines and further detail correctly. Ticking this will remove them so it will work for those browsers.
  • You can now Temporarily Ban a dedicated server. Clicking on a dedicated server on the map will bring up the host descriptor box as usual. A "Temp Ban" button will now be available. Once clicking this you will be given a warning as banning it whilst you're in a game WILL kick you from the game. You can remove your bans by clicking the "refresh icon" that is the last red button on the right under Low Resolution Map. 

Please note, the dedicated servers will stay banned for 5 minutes or until you click the refresh icon.


You may block a dedicated server and notice you still get a game in the same location. This is because there are clusters of dedicated servers in the same location. 


3. Congestion Control

  • Device prioritisation has been split into two tabs "Upload" and "Download" so you can prioritise devices by just upload/download or a device by both at the same time. 
  • Hyper Traffic, this means you can prioritise your gaming device, so that it will bypass everything in your home and packets will go out/come in first no matter what other devices in your home are doing. Resulting in very little jitter/ping increases. Do not use this for high traffic situations such as downloading torrents.

4. Profiles


Load Profile:

  • This page is used to load the profiles you have on the router. It comes with pre set profiles we have made. These are built in and cannot be deleted - you do not have to use them. 
  • You can choose the profile you want to load, if you have extra profiles that have been imported/created by you they will be in the list.
  • You are able to select the settings you do/do not want to load from the profile. 
  • If a setting is greyed out this means those settings were not included in the profile so you can not select/deselect them.

Please note a profile may take a few minutes to load, it will let you know once it's done.


Manage Profiles:

  • You can see the profiles available on your router.
  • You can import profiles if you have been sent one by someone else. A box will pop up prompting you to select the file, it will be a .json file you'll need.
  • You can export profiles that you have made which will then automatically download a .json file. You can then share this with friends/other duma users for them to import onto their router.
  • You can delete profiles that you have made or imported - Please note you cannot delete the default profiles that appear on the router from the NETDUMA team.

Save Current Settings:

  • What ever settings you have at the time will be the ones that are saved.
  • You can give your profile a name e.g. Fraser - Amazing BO3 Profile, credit yourself as the creator and give a little description of the profile.
  • You can then choose the specific settings you want to be included in your profile. You can turn off any of the options listed if you do not want it included. Please note some settings may not be best on the persons router that is importing due to location, speeds etc.
  • Once you have save your profile go back to Manage Profiles. Your newly created profile will now be available at the bottom of the list. You can then choose to Export this profile if you want to share it with others or delete it completely. 

Auto Speed Setup:


In bandwidth settings upon inputting your speed you will be asked if you want the router to update the settings according to your speeds.




Final Note: 


This upgrade will provide you with lots more options than previously to enable you to tweak your settings and get the best out of your router. 

There are lots of other small things you will notice, more tours, increased feedback when saving options etc. 


Change log:

  • Implemented profiles.
  • Implemented temporary server ban.
  • Implemented hyper traffic lane.
  • Improved backend device prioritisation system.
  • Fixed device prioritisation bug with turbo mode.
  • Created more user tours.
  • Decoupled download and upload device prioritisation.
  • Updated UI to consistently notify user with dialog boxes.
  • Implemented generic dialog for better user input and error handling.
  • Added scroll bar to GF service selection for multi-device homes.
  • Fixed bottom page scrolling bug in misc section.
  • Implemented loading screen for misc & other pages as confusing otherwise.
  • Implemented auto-setup when user sets bandwidth.
  • Moved Geo-Filer enable to checkbox and added loading screen.
  • Removed unsupported Wireless mode from menu.
  • Fixed ping-assist for PPPoE connections.
  • Cleaned up missing page titles and favicons.
  • Added service for Halo 5.
  • Updated upgrade page including link to wiki with latest firmware.
  • Intro tour automatically updates speed settings for user.
  • Warn user that congestion control is disabled when super turbo is enabled.
  • Updated wifi-workaround & bleeding edge factory reset parameters.
  • Updated default speed to 100/10 it's 2016!
  • Removed internal log output from wan and lan.sh.
  • Fixed WAN update bugs.
  • Implemented more tours and added logic to handle loading sequences.
  • Allow double quotes in device names.
  • Wait for firewall locking instead of error.
  • Bidirectional port selection for Geo-Filter and Hyper-Lane.
  • Fixed blurred text on Ubuntu Chrome.
  • Implemented click-wrap EULA for future customers.
  • Toggle level of detail for Geo-Filter map for slower devices.
  • Fixed delete device operation with reserved IP bug.
  • Full device service cleanup on delete.
  • Updated the Intro tour to demo profiles and cookies.
  • Added sub-loading screen for cloud on misc for faster page loading.
  • Reload Geo-Filter after applying any firewall/network settings.
  • Fixed minor init bug.

Some additional notes that will be helpful:


  • Temp server ban lasts 5 minutes.  This is not forever, or else you will eventually have nothing to connect to for gaming.    :)
  • Temp Ban will ban one dedicated host, but there may be others in the machine rack that are also hosting games.  Don't panic, this is normal.
  • UNDO Temp Ban.  It's the square to the right with the two circles, this will release your previously banned dedis.  Yes, this will also release the one you just banned.
  • Don't have Hyper Lane enabled when you are going to download a large update patch.    ^_^

#137986 DumaOS Announcement: Development Progress & Testing

Posted by Netduma Luke on 27 January 2017 - 02:02 PM

Hi everyone,


Luke here with an update on DumaOS. Iain would usually be the one to post this but he is travelling at the moment and he was adamant we shared this with you before the end of the week. 


You can read the update on our site here:




And here is a copy and paste below:


Development Progress


We are pleased to announce that the development of DumaOS, our new router operating system, is progressing very well and testing is underway. As a reminder, DumaOS will be available for free to all our users, and it consists of:

  • An entirely new OS for your NETDUMA – Unlocking the full potential of your router for the first time in history
  • Completely redesigned interface – Highest level of performance and yet easy to use
  • Even better QoS – You already have the best QoS but now it’s even more powerful, squeezing every last drop of performance with patent pending anti-jitter & anti-spike technology
  • Existing features upgraded – We’ve improved all the functionality you know and love

Further, DumaOS is so fluid and flexible that once launched, we will be able to roll out new features and upgrades at a speed never seen on routers before. We are so excited about the potential of this software and the amazing features we will be creating for our users.




We are currently approaching users on our community forum to invite them to become testers. The users we approach are based on many factors, including locale and experience with testing. If you are not approached please do not be offended – by its very nature testing means using software that is not yet fully stable so we are deliberately limiting the number of testers.

Shortly after this phase we will extend the testing to the ‘Coal Mine’, our long-standing community of beta testers. We then expect to launch an Open Beta in March, which will allow any Netduma user who wishes to become a tester to take part.


Finally, we have started a mailing list for updates on DumaOS development. If you would like to receive these updates, please enter your email address here

Posted by Netduma Fraser on 06 September 2016 - 05:37 PM

Here is the first public preview of the new DumaOS. It will be even better once it is finished but we thought we should give you a little preview of how it is looking so far. Let us know what you think!



#105674 Port forward static ip for Blops3 & IW on PS4

Posted by bagsta69 on 06 May 2016 - 12:51 AM

I have added two more ports at the end of this tutorial to cover the ports for Infinite Warfare as well. Just add these to the ports already forwarded.


Tonight I experienced a moderate Nat type after the latest update to Black Ops 3 and was struggling to join friends over the pond.

After a quick google I decided to try port forwarding. I have never had to do this before as UPNP seems to work fine for me but no amount of turning it off and on again was working for me.

After doing the following which took about 5 minutes I had open Nat again and went off to kick ass and take names with my American friends. :)


Giving PS4 a static IP address.And Port Forwarding for Black Ops 3.

To be able to Port Forward your Ports for the PS4 and Black Ops 3 you will need to give your PS4 a static IP address.
Fire up the PS4 and go to Settings on the XMB.

Go to Network and View connection.


Attached File  viewstatus.jpg   233.16KB   48 downloads


Write down the IP address, Subnet mask Default gateway and Primary DNS.

Go back to settings and click on Set up Internet Connection.


Attached File  setup.jpg   147.19KB   40 downloads


If at all possible make sure you are using an ethernet cable and select wired.

Select Custom

Then on the next screen select Manual.

Input the information you wrote down earlier, You don't really have to input a secondary DNS.

Click next, MTU select Auto, Proxy, select Do not use, Then Test connection.

Now go to your R1 User interface and select Settings.

Go to UPNP and untick the box and click apply.

Next go to Settings, Port Forwarding.

You will be presented with a screen like below.

Rule name, Call it what you like, I call all my simply PS4

Start port is 80, so we input 80 and end port is also 80.

Protocol is TCP and the IP address is the static address that you previously gave to your PS4.

Click add rule and do the same again for the next port.

The ports we need to forward are

and start 3478 End 3480

UDP ports are

9307-9308 (Thank you bigdog and A7)

Click Apply.


Attached File  r1_2.jpg   168.01KB   45 downloads


This should have done all the forwarding needed to give you an Open Nat if you have been having issues.


Infinite Warfare ports are very similar.

Just add these to the port forwarding rules.

tcp and udp 3075 and 3076

#138205 DumaOS Announcement: Development Progress & Testing

Posted by Netduma Fraser on 29 January 2017 - 12:46 PM

Wait so this isn't gonna be open beta next month? Are you for real?! I thought that the whole closed select few beta was this month what have you guys been doing then. I thought that the previous timeline stated something different. I was looking forward to February for antispike and antijitter.... And I know I'm not the only one who really needs this....I'm sorry but I'm heavily disappointed now.


You're not a developer so you can't know how these things work which is fine, let me tell you. Find bugs > gets fixed > find bugs in new version > gets fixed so on and so forth. In each version you then need to test all the things you were testing before as well as testing for the bugs that should have been fixed in this latest version. As you can imagine this can obviously push back the timeline. I'm sure it explains in the previous thread that timelines are not rock solid. Video games push back their release date all the time - and you're actually going to purchase that product, you're getting this upgrade for free. So I would ask for a little patience as completely redoing the firmware from the ground up is no easy task.


Depending on how the testing goes will determine how fast everyone gets to use it. Would you rather we throw something completely buggy & unusable at you or something more polished that may only have a few minor bugs here and there? I know what I'd prefer. I'm playing a game at the moment that's been fully released, has major bugs like it will just crash whenever it feels like it. I would've been happy for them to defer the release a bit to fix this but because they rushed to get it out for Xmas they have a buggy product that they then have to fix with updates. You deserve more than that.

Posted by RILLA au on 3 days ago

I feel I can comment here as an outsider who owns a software company (relatively small with 17 developers) 


I can assure you that NetDuma want this to be released as much as we do. I know what it's like to say something will be done and 4 months later it's still going, It hurts more when its not in your budget and you pay the wages from your own pocket. Give these guys a break and be patient. Good things come to those who wait.

#140269 2 years here!

Posted by bagsta69 on 15 February 2017 - 01:49 AM

Wow, ive just noticed I have been knocking about here for two years today.
Seen a lot of advancements and entire attitudes change to online gaming during that time.
I remember looking up details of this new router and what it does and checked out a few reviews and thought,
I gotta get me one of those,
I did and it has been a blessing since I bought it.
I am very excited about the coming release of OS2 like most people are and here is to another two years in great company,
Cheers y'all.

#79027 Netduma R1 Configuration Chrome Extension

Posted by ByMgRs on 30 December 2015 - 08:46 PM

Hey all!
I have been very busy this evening writing a Chrome extension. Now it is relatively simple, so what it allows you to do is click an R1 logo (in the extensions zone) to launch a new tab showing the Netduma config page. So now your interested how do you install it? Rather than babble on I am going to leave the steps below and then some quick notes about future plans.
1) Please read the bottom of the article now! I have made some updates. You can now download an official version form here: 
For custom installs:
1) Download the .crx file, this is the actual extension file. I had never heard of .crx before doing this     
    project but I can promise you it is not malicious.
2) Move the .crx file to your desktop. This isn't required but will make the next steps a bit easier.
3) Open a new chrome tab and enter:  chrome://extensions/    
    This will open the Extensions management page. 
4) Now move the Chrome window to a position where you can see it and the .crx file on your desktop. Now all you need to do is drag the .crx file onto the Chrome page.
5) Release your cursor and a confirmation box will pop up asking if you want to add it. Click add and that is it!
6) You will now see a Netduma logo in the top right of your Chrome page with your other extensions. If you click it a
    new tab will be launched opening the Netduma configuration page.
So eventually I would like to publish this to the Chrome store for more easy use. Can either Iain, Fraser or anyone from the Netduma team message me regarding permission to do this, alternatively I am happy for you to publish it as long as I am given some form of recognition :) Done it!
If you have any questions please leave them below! Hope this helps!
So... I sorta jumped the gun a bit and published it! It's available here for download through the Chrome store:

#141778 Just a heads up about EEE...

Posted by I Am MoD BoX on 3 weeks ago

I was randomly doing some digging on my PC and came across this in the ethernet driver settings...




It was enabled by default. I know that EEE doesn't play nicely with the Netduma on the modem side of things, so this could explain some issues other people are having with their routers? I don't know, just something to look into.

#133175 Happy Anniversary Netduma!!

Posted by Dillinger on 12 December 2016 - 12:31 AM

Happy Anniversary Netduma guys!  


Hard to believe it's only been two years!?


So many changes.  


The first update.  The Coal Mine and the Canaries were formed. They were in 50 countries.  A forum member became an employee (Shout out to CrossyEu).  More updates followed with forum ideas being implemented.  They were now in over 100 countries.  Awards were won.  They were suddenly on Amazon for sale.  A massive update undertaking from the ground up was planned and begun.  Even more Awards were won.  I don't even know how many countries they are in these days... almost all of them?


I still remember a day, two years ago next week, when I saw a story on CharlieIntel about this new router that supposedly let you restrict WHERE your host in P2P matchmaking.


I was playing Black Ops 2 at the time, in house where there was always something streaming, and I used to rage about getting hosted in another country, or 3 states away.  BO2 is definitely a connection dependent game, and little did I know (as a former cable guy who had wired his own home) how many little things were ACTUALLY affecting my gunfights.


All I read of the article, I remember, was where they talked about 1) YOU can restrict a host radius with easy to use software and 2) IT WAS FOR SALE!


I did some Google-Fu and had ordered one before the afternoon was out.  I was grinding this game every single day and if there was a way to give me a better fighting chance (oh, little did I know) then it was worth the investment.


The router showed up, I hooked it up, and immediately saw a world of improvement in my scores and my K/D.  The wife was over the moon because she could watch or stream whatever she wanted, and I was wiping people off maps that used to have me rage quitting.


There has been just so many changes, not just with the router, but the packaging, the name recognition, sponsorships and poor Fraser not the only one on the forum day and night.


I am really proud to be part of that First Shipment Early Adopter crew.  I still have that NetDuma running the house and I am still glad I decided to give this little start-up out of the UK my money for a product I didn't fully understand at the time.


Congratulations Guys!  I expect you to give us First Adopters all personal shout-outs when you get interviewed by Forbes.   :D



#130209 DumaOS - Development Update

Posted by Dillinger on 16 November 2016 - 04:29 PM

Wow - Looks awesome guys!  I can't wait to be a part of this whenever I am tapped to test.  Delays happen, but the guy in charge has now given us an accurate level set and has shared both progress to date and an "expected" timeline.  


If only Call of Duty would take the same approach instead of rushing out half baked ideas.  :rolleyes:


All I can add is *chirp-chirp*

#143399 DumaOS Announcement: Development Progress & Testing

Posted by Joe on 6 days ago

Sheeeeesh hahaha I can't help but laugh when I read how pissed off people are that DumaOS isn't out yet. Some serious salt on this thread. Anyone who doesn't wish we had it by now is lying, but the fact of the matter is it's not ready yet. Everyone's entitled to their own opinion, be as pissed off as you want. But there's a difference between being a complete asshole about it and being civil about not being happy that we're still waiting. The most simple thing to do until we hear more news about its release: shut up and deal with it. Your bitching and moaning is NOT going to speed up its release. The end ;)
