    Welcome Joseph!
  2. Last month we introduced DumaOS Milestone 1.3. We are happy to announce that it is now available for all Netduma R1 users. Everyone who has signed up to the Open Beta of DumaOS will have received an email with the firmware link and installation instructions. If you have not signed up to the Open Beta yet, please go here: https://netduma.com/r1-dumaos/ Nighthawk XR500/XR700 users: stay tuned for an announcement on when this will be available on your router. This milestone includes: Ping Assist v2: it's 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. Hybrid VPN: apply your VPN to your entire network and also choose the devices and applications you want to put through your VPN using DumaOS Deep Packet Inspection. Advanced Ping Stats: 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. Device Manager Enhancements: shows every device on your Network and you can now view this as a sortable table, to give you easier administration. This is the first of many DumaOS milestones which we will continue to roll out to make your router even more powerful. Have fun. The ND Team
  3. 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.

These will be released in a series of ‘Milestones’ – we will be announcing more on this soon. Many thanks to all our closed Beta Testers who have been absolutely amazing at getting us to this point. We couldn’t have done it without you guys. Finally, a big thank you to all of you, the Duma Army, for your support and patience. We appreciate this was a long development road, far longer than we expected, but we never lost our resolve to bring DumaOS to you. We hope you love it. Thanks The Netduma Team To discuss this Open Beta, or ask us any questions, feel free to post in this thread.

  6. NETGEAR have announced the latest member of their Nighthawk Pro Gaming family, the Nighthawk Pro Gaming XR700 Router: powered by DumaOS. The launch of the XR700 means DumaOS is now powering its third router, to go alongside the Nighthawk Pro Gaming XR500 and the upcoming release on the Netduma R1. The XR700 is, simply put, BEAST hardware, boasting the fastest 60GHz 802.11ad WiFi technology with a single 10G SFP+ port and additional 7 Gigabit ports. By partnering with DumaOS, this truly is a combination of the world's best router hardware and the world's best router software. It will be available worldwide next month and you can read more in the official press release here. Thank you for your support The Netduma Team
  7. We have some good news to share: DumaOS for the Netduma R1 is now in the final stages of beta testing! As many of you know, this has taken so much longer than we anticipated, but our developers have now resolved all the major issues. This means that DumaOS for the R1 is stable and crucially, backwards compatible, so you can go back to the original R1 firmware if you prefer. A big thank you to all the beta testers who worked tirelessly with us to get to this point. We are tidying up some last loose ends to make it ready for full release. We will let you know it is ready to download across all our media platforms. Be sure to sign up to the DumaOS mailing list so you are the first to know when it's out. Stay tuned! The ND Team

    R1 DumaOS Briefly Delayed

    Thanks Sim Weeks at most No problem. We did actually ask legal this but they advised it's better to just have the backwards compatibility Thanks Alex!

    R1 DumaOS Briefly Delayed

    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

    A7Legit Passed Away :(

    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.
  14. 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
