#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.

#150499 DumaOS Update - Recent Progress

Posted by Netduma Luke on 06 June 2017 - 08:19 PM

A long awaited update on DumaOS
We have made a lot of progress over the past few weeks. The OS is currently being beta tested by more of our UK based users and their feedback has been great. Thanks to their testing we have been able to make the OS very stable. This is a big milestone. DumaOS is such a big undertaking so getting to this point, where we know the firmware is solid, is a very good feeling.
Now we have stability we can shift our focus to usability. This means making things as easy as possible to use and much more 'plug and play' than the current R1 firmware. For example, we have developed an 'Auto Congestion Control' feature, which automatically applies Anti-flood and Hyper Traffic whenever you are gaming (this can be turned off by the more experienced users who prefer to manually configure things).
Once usability is in place we can then widen the beta to more users. So this means we will be expanding the beta pool soon through the Coal Mine. Open Beta should then follow not long afterwards. We've deliberately not given exact dates here - it'll be ready when it's ready!
After usability comes the fun stuff, when we can create many new features that we have in our Development Roadmap. We will continue to roll these out on a regular basis even after DumaOS is fully launched, meaning your router will just keep getting better and better.
Finally we just want to say thank you for all your support and patience. We realise it's frustrating when we don't send out status updates so we're going to make sure we do more to keep you guys in the loop. What we will say is be assured we are working as hard as we can to get DumaOS ready. It's a big step up for our company so we want it out there as much as you do. But only when it's ready!
Thank you for your understanding,
The Netduma Team

#88416 Major NETDUMA Upgrade Now Available (v 1.03.6j)

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

If you are on 1.03.6j then NEVER downgrade your router as you WILL brick the router. You will automatically be on 1.03.6j if you ordered on or after 20/11/2017. 1.03.6j does not have any new features over 1.03.6g/h/i.

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/i/j 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

#144170 DumaOS Announcement: Development Progress & Testing

Posted by Netduma Iain on 24 March 2017 - 05:45 PM

Iain here with a long-awaited news update:


First of all we realise there has been a lot heated discussion in this thread about when DumaOS should / will be ready. It's great to see so many of you are passionate and excited. For the handful of users who are feeling impatient please be assured we are working as hard and as fast as we can to get a version ready for you. We are very confident you will love the results once the upgrade is available. However, transitioning from a small number of testers to tens of thousands of open beta testers is a huge leap so we are doing everything we can to optimise the OS before we do this.


If we rush out a version that is not sufficiently tested then we run the risk of doing more harm than good. You, as a tester, will have to wait on us to fix issues while your gaming suffers. And as developers it puts us under a lot of pressure that is not conducive to creating great router software.


So when will the Open Beta begin? Well the closed beta is already underway and it is going well so far - the feedback has been very positive and thanks to our testers we have resolved a bunch of issues meaning we're getting close to a fully stable version. Once we reach that point we will expand the testing to more of our closed beta testers. This means we are confident we will have an upgrade for you in the near future and we are even more confident that you guys will love DumaOS, but ONLY WHEN IT'S READY!


Thank you for all your support, patience and enthusiasm. And to tie you over, attached is a new screenshot from the UI (left click to expand). This is the 'Dashboard' feature, which allows you to pin your favourite features onto one single screen. This creates one master page from which you can control DumaOS. Have fun speculating what each feature is for!

#157985 A7Legit Passed Away :(

Posted by Netduma Iain on 26 August 2017 - 12:32 PM

I really hope this isn't true. We're all absolutely devastated by this at the office. Everyone knows and loves A7 here. He was one of the first people to hear about us even before we launched. He's been a supporter from the very start and his passion never stopped. He was one of our first fans and biggest fans and we were all fans of him. I'm just glad he got a chance to try DumaOS as I know he really wanted to.


I don't use twitter much at the moment but I knew anytime I opened it my DMs would be full of A7 linking videos of him wrecking noobs and dat crispy connection as he put it.


Such shitty news. Not to make it about NETDUMA but I just always imagined A7Legit being there with every new release giving me his feedback. I'm going to change the codename of DumaOS 1.0 to A7Legit in his honour. RIP mate

#155407 DumaOS Update - Recent Progress

Posted by Netduma Fraser on 25 July 2017 - 04:54 PM

This thread has become very unconstructive so I will close this for now. I have spoken to the mods/admins who agree. We will get some more information out for you very soon. Thank you for your patience.

#169689 A7legit shout out!

Posted by Netduma Fraser on 12 January 2018 - 12:47 PM

Very good spot. We thought it was only right to dedicate it to our fallen friend. He out of everyone was one of the most excited about DumaOS and unfortunately he passed before seeing it come to fruition, this way he's a part of it and lives on.

#157984 A7Legit Passed Away :(

Posted by Netduma Fraser on 26 August 2017 - 12:31 PM

Commenting with the hope that this isn't true. A7 has been here from the very beginning - day 1. The DumaArmy has taken a heavy blow with this news and I think all of us here will remember A7 as a gamer through and through just like the rest of us. It was his passion. He will be widely missed on this forum & by everyone who knew him. R.I.P A7 my thoughts & love go out to his family & friends during this difficult time.

#145385 The best settings (IMO) for the 1.03.06 firmware

Posted by Chive972 on 04 April 2017 - 10:28 AM

**Pour la version française, cliquez ici: http://forum.netduma...mieux-cest-ici/ **


Hello everyone,

Following many requests, I present today the best configuration (from my point of view) available on the current version of the NetDuma.

I hope this topic can help you before the arrival of the new firmware.

I will expand this topic as best I can to please everyone so do not hesitate to come back later for news (I think add updates regularly enough) and give me your reviews / tips to improve it At best: http://forum.netduma...nd-suggestions/

I'm talking to new users as well as experienced users, even confirmed users playing on COD, Destiny, FIFA, ... on any medium (Game Console or PC).

I would like to point out that these adjustments are the result of my experience and advices I have been able to glean over the months.



1) Configuring your ISP modem – (Modem with built-in Router combo units.)

At first, we will dwell on the configuration of your ISP modem/router combo unit.

I would not dwell on the specificities of each box (DHCP, static IP, ...) and lets you search the information by yourself.

You can configure your ISP modem with your NetDuma in two ways: DMZ or bridge.

A DMZ is a virtual zone designed to accommodate equipment that will not be affected by the security rules of the box (but this is still the main router) while the bridge mode is used to make your NetDuma your router Main and connected "directly" to the Internet.

The DMZ is available in most the ISP modem with built-in routers combo units of the market but this is not necessarily the case for bridge mode. Be aware that some ISPs lock down the modems UI or may not allow access to the modems UI. Contact your ISP for help and information regarding this if needed.


If you want to configure a DMZ (to be done on your modem): For modems with built-in router combo units.

A) Configure a Reserved IP address for the R1 on the Modem/Router

You must configure a reserved IP with the NetDuma's MAC address (this is available on the back of the router on the label.) Example: 56: 2d: 36: p9: 56: b2) on the modem.

B)Enable DMZ

You must activate the DMZ for the reserved IP address you defined earlier. Place the IP address that was reserved for the R1 router into the modems DMZ.

C) Disable UPNP on the modem. If feature is available.

(UPNP allows automatic opening of ports used for your applications and games.

Since the NetDuma will take over this task, it is preferable to disable it.)

D) Delete all port forwarding rules on the ISP Modem/Router and R1 router

If you had previously set up rules for your console, you should delete them



E) If you want to configure the bridge mode: Putting a modem/router into modem only mode.

As for bridge mode, Some ISPs use DHCP to pass the WAN IP address like Cable ISPs or with ADSL, use PPPoE to pass the WAN IP address. For ADSL/PPPoE connections, user name and password maybe needed to input on to the NetDuma R1 so that it can authenticate thru the bridged modem. This is only seen on some DSL ISP services. Cable ISPs do not use authentication and just use DHCP to pass the WAN IP address to the NetDuma R1 router. No configuration needed for most Cable ISP services. After the modem is bridged fully, the WAN IP address should appear on the R1 router if all is configured correctly. Test with a Lan wired PC directly to the NetDuma R1 router and test of internet connectivity.

Users should contact their ISP providers for additional help and information if they need there modem/routers bridged when using an external router like the NetDuma R1. Some ISPs may not support bridging of modem/routers or the actual hardware may not be supporting of bridge mode.

Additional Info:





2) Configuring your Netduma (preferably Chrome or Firefox and AdBlock disabled)

A) Verify the Netduma firmare version

Make sure the Netduma version is the 1.03.06g or 1.03.06h (if you are a new user, you should already be on the latest version).

If this is not the case, please post a message here:


You can also post a topic in our section or ask for help here:




B) Enable "Enable cookies"

To ensure that the options set in your Netduma are backed up, make sure that the option is checked in the "Settings" tab and then "Miscellaneous".



3) Locate your console

Your console may be recognized as an “unnamed device” by your Netduma in the connected devices list.

To find it, turn on your console and go to the network settings.

You can edit the host name of the console within its network settings so that the console appears on the R1s connected device list correctly for easier identification.

Locate the IP address associated with your console and compare to the list of devices on the Device Manager page.

After locating your equipment with the IP address (note this value, it will serve you later), you can rename it to facilitate your needs.


4) Configure host filtering

Host filtering will allow you to delimit a geographical area that will limit the number of players that can connect to your host. You will now be connected to hosts with very low ping and therefore much more fluid gameplay.

To set the host filtering on your console, click the Select service button.

Choose your console then the service that will be associated with it (PSN, Xbox Live, ...).

In the geo-filter section, click on the house icon and click on your geographical area again (you can use the magnifier icon and the zoom factor to delimit a zoom area on the map).

Adjust the radius of the filter with the Filter by Distance bar according to your geographical area (800Km for Europe for example and more in less densely populated areas).

The ping assist can be reduced to zero and you can activate the strict mode option if you are playing Call of Duty.



5) Configure congestion control

This section will allow you to optimize your connection in order to cancel "latency and make the network flow of your gaming device a priority.

In the Anti-Flood section, select the "Reactive" algorithm and then adjust both bars to 100%.

Click on the "Set Bandwidth" button, you will now be able to enter information about your bandwidth.

To best adjust these values, try a test at http://www.speedtest.net and retrieve the values.

You can then type them and confirm by clicking on "Update Bandwidth".

A pop up window appears, click "No".

You can return to the previous window by clicking on the "Congestion Control" tab.

Switch back your download and upload to 70%.

Touch the Device Prioritization section only if you use a computer to stream your games.

If so, locate your computer on the star and adjust the priority level for that device.

For Hyper-traffic, click "Add New Hyper Service".

Select your console then the service (which will be the same as you previously selected in the host filtering).



6) Configure DHCP Lease

Here you will set up a reserved IP address for your console.

Click the "Reserved" button and then enter the last number of the IP address you wrote down.

Once this is set, your game console will always get the same IP address when it is turned on. It should never change.



7) Configure port forwarding

You will be able to define rules and open the ports necessary for communication in your console, the associated system and the game for better fluidity.

Here are the known ports to open:

- PSN or XBOX Live

TCP / UDP: 1024-65535

You will need to enter the IP address value associated with your console previously noted for each rule.

(I leave you to find the ports to open according to your game if your console does not appear here (Wii, Nintendo Switch, ...).

Then click "Apply" to confirm.



8) Disable UPNP

Simply uncheck the Enabled option and click the "Apply" button (if the load is too long, click on the NetDuma button in the top left corner).



9) Configure the LAN & WAN part

You can disable IPv6 by clicking "Disabled" and then "Apply". This should be disabled for users that do not have native IPv6 support from there ISP services.

For experienced users: you can define a fixed MTU.

To do this, disable the MTU auto by clicking "Disabled" and enter the desired value (1492 for ADSL, 1500 for a cable or fiber connection). Automatic is preferred is most cases.



10) Configure the Miscellaneous part

Make sure the following options are checked:

- Enable Cookies

- Allow self-feedback (no personal data ever) to help improve the R1

- Allow Remote Access to NetDuma tech support


11) Configure your console

We now will finish with the network configuration of your console.

Launch a manual configuration et register the following informations:


IP address: 192.168.88.X

Network mask:


Primary DNS:

Secondary DNS:

Proxy (if available): no

DHCP hostname: not specified


For the beginners, use the automatic value for the MTU.

For the experienced users, use the same value of MTU used previously.


My topic is now finished.

A big thanks to Mr. e38BimmerFN who translated the entire thread.

I hope that will help you as well as possible and I remain at your disposal for any additional information. As mention above, do not hesitate to inform me of your remarks and suggestions: http://forum.netduma...nd-suggestions/


See you soon on the forum fellas  :P

#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.

#181754 R1 DumaOS Briefly Delayed

Posted by fuzzy clam on 22 May 2018 - 04:06 PM

How about this boys, most of you know the situation that us mods are in. Which is trying to keep things civil and still answer questions about the issue at hand. And most of you also know that we don't know anymore than you guys do about the release. None of us are employed by Netduma, we try to help out on the forum, don't get paid for it, just really liked the R1 when it first came out and helped people who were having issues with the set up in their home networks.


I don't think any of us in their position with the opportunity to partner with Netgear would have done anything different than they did. It is a business at the end of the day, and anyone in business knows that you do what is best for the business and growth of the product you market. Believe it or not we didn't know anything about the Netgear deal, until it was announced. Again we aren't on the inside of their business dealings, meetings etc, were just  owners and paying customers like everyone else on here.


I myself am disappointed that the update for the R1 isn't out yet. As I've said all along I am a OG Duma fan as it has some things that the XR 500 does not. Yes I have both but my preference is still the R1 as the features that I'm really interested in are gone be on it, anti spike and anti jitter to be specific.


Again as much as we would like to "make them" tell us something, we can't. We're in the same boat as everyone else patiently or impatiently waiting for any word on the status or the actual release of the new OS. Until then we're just trying to keep the peace, which as you guys are well aware of is not an easy task at this point.

#157997 A7Legit Passed Away :(

Posted by Netduma Luke on 26 August 2017 - 12:48 PM

Absolutely gutted to hear this terrible news. A7 was one of the most enthusiastic and supportive people I've ever known. Whether it was on these forums or on Twitter, he was always so positive and seemed to love life. He was also a ridiculously good gamer, his KDs were off the scale. We will contact his family to send our condolences from everyone in the DumaArmy.


Rest in peace A7, you will be very missed.

#178454 R1 DumaOS Briefly Delayed

Posted by Netduma Luke on 16 April 2018 - 08:28 PM

Hi Duma Army,
We need to announce that the free upgrade of our new software, DumaOS, for the Netduma R1 will need to be briefly delayed due to unexpected requirement from our Legal Team. Our lawyers have advised that DumaOS on the R1 must be backwards compatible.
In other words, if you install DumaOS onto the R1 you should always have the option to reinstall the older R1 firmware if you prefer to go back. We had not designed the DumaOS integration with the R1 to allow for this as DumaOS is superior. But based on legal advice we now must redo the integration to allow for this. It should take, at absolute most, a few more weeks. Nothing more as we have everything else working.
We realise you have been waiting patiently for this upgrade and this last-minute delay is frustrating. Our entire development team is working flat out to get this last bit fixed as soon as possible as we really want you all on DumaOS.
For what it's worth, we're as frustrated as you are as we can't wait to start making lots of new R-Apps (features) for you all. 
We will get this last piece done as soon as possible and then it will be full steam ahead in delivering an explosion of new DumaOS features for you all.
Thank you for your continued support.
The ND Team

#158268 Tournament in honour of A7Legit - Suggestions

Posted by Netduma Fraser on 30 August 2017 - 10:57 AM

As you may or may not be aware one of our dear friend's and fellow DumaArmy member A7Legit passed away recently (you can give your condolences with others here: http://forum.netduma...passed-away/). 


It was suggested that we throw a tournament in his honour. I think that is a fantastic idea. Rather than me just deciding what we should do I think that as a community we should come together and decide on how to run this tournament.


I will start out with a few ideas and provide a generic outline of things to decide on, then we can discuss them, come up with new ideas etc. I'll update this top post with the suggestions gathered and then after awhile I'll create a poll and we can vote on what we want the final tournament to look like. After that we'll do signups and finalise the plan.


My ideas:

  • I don't know if A7 would have liked WW2 or not but a WW2 tournament could be nice, playing the CoD game that he was unfortunately never able to try out or possibly play one of his favourite CoDs - BO3 perhaps?
  • Free For All
  • Instead of a prize I think:

              - A donation to his family that everyone can contribute to (sent in a massive card with short condolence messages)

              - A donation to a charity like the British Heart Foundation (i.e. a charity that deals with the heart) that everyone can contribute to (alongside the card above saying how much we raised in his name)


Things to decide on:

  • Game
  • Gametype
  • Rules
  • Prize
  • When should it take place?
  • Anything else?

Please be polite and respectful in this thread. I won't tolerate any rudeness.


Current Suggestions:



Donation prize
Early December if WW2
October/November if BO3

WW2 may not have as many players as possible

#169449 Time for reflection for DumaOS r1 and NighthawkXR500

Posted by Netduma Iain on 10 January 2018 - 06:15 PM

Sorry to hear about your eye mate and consequences you've suffered due to it. 


I can clear up a few things. The delay for Nighthawk(NH) availability outside of the US is due to NETGEARs distribution system. It just takes longer to reach different centres and channels, I don't know the details but that is the main reason. Also we need to fully integrate language translation into NH which we're doing at the moment. I know UK speaks English obiviousy but NG distributes in terms of regions. So UK is part of EU. To distribute to EU you need language translation for many countries.


DumaOS is not delayed on the R1 by NG. They have no such control over what we do with our own hardware and when we do it. We are partners with NG, we do not work for them, cannot state that more clearly. R1 is delayed due to hardware challenges we're solving at the moment namely automatic turbo mode(fastpath) which is required by DumaOS (user doesn't have to fiddle with UI to get max speeds) and finally how configurations are partitioned (hopefully making DumaOS unbrickable).


Finally our hardware will have more features because we will create experimental features based on our roadmap and community feedback. Only when NG approves of a new feature will it go on their router. So likely the NG will slightly behind our hardware in terms of bleeding edge features. Which for the typical consumer is ideal as they don't want to test out stuff that may not be useful or is complicated. But if you're that way inclined then enjoy the experience with our hardware.


Hope that clears up everything for you(Big Dog) and anyone else reading this thread. Here's to a very tech productive 2018! :)
