    About two years ago we made the biggest decision in our company’s history. We knew we had the best router software on the market, but we were not developing at the speed we wanted to. Every time we made a change, we were forced to repeat the same steps each time. Not to mention, a single change risked breaking other features. Netduma Dev Team c. 2016 We pulled the trigger. We decided to start-over again, taking all the lessons from our launch to design an entirely new firmware. We made DumaOS, the router operating system for your home. DumaOS gives us the foundations to develop new features, which we call ‘R-Apps’ (‘Router Apps’), at incredible speed. And we will be doing this from now on in a series of Development Milestones. Each Milestone will bring more functionality to your DumaOS-powered router, solving the real problems you face online. Netduma Dev Team - Present Day Before we go any further, some important rules: Predicting software development is tricky, sometimes things go much faster than you expect, sometimes they go slower. So until we are certain, the ETA of a milestone will always be ‘Whenever it’s ready’. The contents of a Milestone could change. We might need to defer some of it to a future Milestone, or we might be able to squeeze in some extras. Milestones may not always roll out to every DumaOS powered router at the same time or with the same contents. With the housekeeping out of the way, let’s get onto the fun bit: Milestone 1.3 Milestone 1.3 is the first publicly announced Milestone for DumaOS. It brings cutting-edge new technology, as well as old favourites, to your DumaOS powered router, enabling you to take even more control over your network. Ping Assist v2 Ping Assist is back, and it’s better than ever. Ping Assist lets low ping hosts to connect to you even if they are outside your Geo-Filter limit, helping you to quickly find high quality, low ping games. DumaOS Ping Assist is a big step up on the original Netduma R1 Ping Assist - we have rewritten the whole feature to be far more effective at quickly detecting pings – meaning you can find the best hosts on the planet much faster than before. The results are truly incredible, especially in games like Black Ops 4, Fornite, PUBG, Overwatch, FIFA 19 and many others. Hybrid VPN Another return of an old favourite. Hybrid VPN lets you apply your VPN to your entire network and also lets you choose the devices and applications you want to put through your VPN using DumaOS Deep Packet Inspection. This gives you so much more flexibility than a standard VPN, allowing you to keep the vulnerable areas of your network private and secure without affecting the devices that don't need a VPN. Hybrid VPN works with any VPN provider that uses OpenVPN (almost all do). Advanced Ping Stats There’s a new buzzword in town: Server Tickrate. This is the number of updates a game server makes per second. If your game runs at 60 frames per second, you ideally want a Tickrate at 60Hz (60 updates per second). Knowing the importance of this metric to our users, we have created Advanced Ping Stats. You can now see the Server (Host) Tickrate and Receive Rate, as well as your own Client Tickrate and Send Rate. This allows you to see the quality of your game's connection in far more detail than ever before. You can also pin to your DumaOS Dashboard for quick reference in-game. This is just the beginning for this feature. Now we are capturing server metrics we can do some cool things to give you an edge. Look out for more in future Milestones. Device Manager Enhancements The DumaOS Device Manager shows every device on your Network and you can now view this as a sortable table, to give you easier administration. We Need You! Milestone 1.3 is has been driven by user feedback. So if you have any ideas or suggestions for suggestions, let us know on the forum.

    I have been lucky enough to test this FW and the ping assist is working really well in Blops4 putting the geo in the ocean and setting the assist to 40ms giving me low ping UK servers. Seeing the tick rate / send and receive is a great new feature, learning that Blops4 had moved to 30HZ the other night before it was announced was awesome Using ping assist for me is the way forward with the way the servers are at the moment on Blops4 forcing you to play with people of your skill no matter where in the world.

    That tickrate is really good since now Developers can't hide this from us anymore everyone that is a gamer should own this router. You can't go wrong and it will only get better this is just the tip of the iceberg 😉👍

    I can also say I have been very lucky to test this incredible software! It is a HUGE improvement over what was an incredible piece of software already. This is well worth the wait and I can confirm the guys have been faster than ever with updates I have had to skip a couple of updates to get to the latest one! Everything we said got took on board! You are all gonna love this!

    It’s been brilliant testing this version, ping assist is back! Seeing the tick rate of the server I’m connected to is a fantastic new feature, especially with all the controversy at the moment surrounding the BO4 server tick rate downgrade.

    The reason bo4 is playing bad

    ICYMI: the next DumaOS Development Milestone includes Advanced Ping Stats, which will show you the server tickrate and receive rate:

    I have also been lucky enough to beta test these new features. Ping assist and the other advanced ping features, host/client tick rate and send/receive rate are a very welcome addition for Black Ops 4. i have not tested Hybrid VPN as I don’t use a VPN but feedback on it from other beta testers has been great. The improvements to the device manager make managing your devices far easier.

    Ping Assist V2 get's you into a game right away! Tick Rate you can actually see what is happening in game with your connection! Best features I have tested and no other router or software company has to offer!

    Sounds amazing, especially with the return of ping assist. This is arguably the most important and useful feature of the geofilter, as distance can mean next to nothing if the guy down the street from you is 100ms away due to a dodgy line or simply endless miles of wiring between you. With that, working allow/deny for servers and a working UPnP, I think that'll be about as close to a perfect router OS as possible. Looking forward to it!

    That's great news to hear that you guys have successfully implemented the HybridVPN as well as ping assist utilization. Hopefully when receiving the DumaOS firmware. The 1.3 milestone will be along with it. But if not, it's definitely nice knowing that it will be coming sooner than later. Truly having R-Apps is a step forward, as you guys had gone from taking baby steps to strides and will continue implementing awesome features. Them tick rates, only the Duma team would understand how much that is for the gamers and already steps ahead in getting that process going for the gamers. Thank you Netduma. For bringing fourth a product for the gamers through it all you persevere. Thank you! - Tray

    Can't wait to expose the Treyarch devs when they inevitably claim they've implemented 60Hz update rates and the R1 will prove otherwise. It'll be "ping is king, there's no skill-based matchmaking" all over again... 😂

    Hi all, just installed the beta, looks good! I'm just curious, I assigned IP's to all my devices from the Netduma, I can't seem to find the option for this now? I have so many devices in my home that I am quite wary of knowing what is what! Thanks EDIT: Ignore, found it in network settings!

    No way is the XR500 old hardware! It’s a beast. I think Fraser got confused and thought he was handling an R1 query - that subforum is very busy with the DumaOS open Beta at the moment. @Micbot - could you post a screenshot of your CPU graph the next time it’s high please?

    Hello, i was having the same problem. a work around i found is to have your friend invite you to new chat party where he/her is the only one in it. once you connect to his/her chat party he will pop up. it usually disappears very quickly so keep your mouse pointer on the map so when it does pop up you can click on the symbol and add him/her. then connect back to the main chat party with everyone

    You can pin whatever you want to the dashboard. Go to the page of the feature you want to pin i.e. GeoFilter and click on the pin icon, this will add it to the dashboard. If you want to remove anything from the dashboard clicking the pin icon will remove it. all the pinned features on the dashboard can be resized or moved to your liking.

    Hi, welcome to the forum. You aren’t doing anything wrong. Treyarch seem to have servers appearing and disappearing all over the world at the minute. Hopefully this will stabilise soon. The server you see in Ireland isn’t a game server, it is a whitelisted server (probably used for authentication) that is needed for your console or game to get you online. I expect that the server you are seeing in the US is possibly a EU server that is currently incorrectly located on the geofilter map, Netduma are currently working on a cloud update to rectify the incorrectly located servers. I would suggest disabling strict mode and searching again. If you then connect to the US server but have a low ping to it then it is defiantly incorrectly located. You can post the details in this thread so Netduma can add it to the cloud. If you don’t have any luck with that try quitting BO4, click the hamburger icon on the geofilter and click ‘flush cloud’ then set your geofilter to the radius you want and make sure ‘filtering mode’ is enabled, boot up BO4 and see if you can find a game. let us know how you get on. If you don’t have any luck please create a new topic and we’ll help you there.

    Were these upgrades done in the background? I just wanna make sure I didn't miss anything lol. I can say so far my firmware is running great!! Geo-Filter is amazing and the layout for the new OS is very sleek! Thanks to the Netduma team for putting in serious work on this bad boy 😁

    It's been a frustrating time, we get that. Moving forwards we hope to communicate better with everyone and stop setting unrealistic deadlines and building up expectations only for it to backfire. That being said, this list could be exactly the same thing - if we start saying 'we've released X amount of upgrades, and you're here on the list!' but then an issue happens, that would just lead to disappointment again. If you've signed up to the beta it won't be long - we rolled out a ton more upgrades last night and more are on the way. The best advice I can give you is to read about DumaOS and keep an eye on your inbox. It'll soon be with you, and we really appreciate your patience as we get DumaOS to everyone.
