  1. Same here, I was able to do so at first but not anymore

    VPN Users Required

    I have used Express VPN with the previous version of Duma on the R1 successfully

    Not to nitpick, but when do you think we could get the VPN feature back? Only thing I miss. Aside from that, very pleasantly impressed.

    DumaOS on the Netduma R1 is now in Open Beta!

    Just upgraded (couldn't wait), and it went smoothly, preserving all settings, including port forwardings. A bit sluggish at first but after a few minutes, it came back like a champ. So far, very impressed with the level of polish.

    I just got it as well. I can only test it tomorrow, but I got it, thanks!
  6. Funny how folks in here hate on WiFI simply because the Duma doesn't have 5 GHz on the R1. I have a solid installation in my house with several repeaters, and my wifi is so dependable, I barely use cables anymore. Of course, according to BIG_DOG, that makes me an unprofessional, savage gamer. To each his own, brother.
  7. So BO4 is released on Oct 12. I'd say that's where the pressure lies since they said they wanted to release it before then. PS: The Archer looks sick btw! Good alternative.
  8. So when you say shortly, do I need to stock on Doritos and beer for the next... weekend???? 😄
  9. I'll be the first to admit I had lost hope to see this on my aging R1. You'll forgive my skepticism but if it's as true as what has been expressed in this thread, I have no issues eating my own words. That being said, hopefully the thread won't go down the road the old one went, provided the Mods keep being as respectful as they've shown they can be in this one. One of the biggest reasons that dreaded thread went down in flames was the combative nature some of the Mods took. This one shows, communication can be assertive, effective and polite. Kudos on the milestone!

    R1 DumaOS Briefly Delayed

    You mind if I pick your brain on this? Did you notice similar or better results than with Netduma? I'm very interested on this

    Guess you're new here, that's the way it's always been. Only forum on the internet where staying quiet is the recommended course of action, lest you anger the almighty

    Wow, all posts that showed Iain's replies were deleted. Guess folks here assume this is the only source of information we have regarding R1. Pathetic.

    It says a lot when even the moderators have given up. This shit is done. Like I said before, best bet is to wait for DumaOS to be available for sale, and install it on more powerful routers.

    R1 DumaOS Briefly Delayed

    So this is funny: I work in a Software Development firm and we recently started to work with a Netgear subsidiary specialized in Network R & D. I befriend the guy/gal and turns out he's/she's a gamer as well, so the topic turns to Netduma. He/she basically confirmed what I assumed was going to happen. The famous backward compatibility patch is not just for the R1 (if it does happen) but for a variety of potential routers. Seems like Netgear was just the beginning, and They're going on the software side of the business which makes perfect sense to me, since I've never regretted investing in the software when it worked as intended. I certainly didn't pay 200 bucks for a Mikrotik board, that's for sure. So the real issue with Netduma is transparency and bad marketing. Go figure. Oh, and the mods have said a million times they're not insiders or privy to company information, so I guess it's fair to say you can't verify or debunk this. It's gonna be very hard to justify deleting this.

    I think I've sort of made my depressing peace with this. I won't be expecting the update anytime soon, and clearly this forum isn't a place where disappointed customers can vent either, lest they break any arbitrary rule. Posts have been deleted on Facebook, Twitter only serves when you say something positive (which by the looks of it, isn't a frequent occurrence), and all evidence points to either complete disregard or lack of a convincing answer (take your pick). I won't be pressured into spending yet another bundle for the XR500 regardless of how good/bad it is. I believed in the company once, I'll keep my current Duma, since apparently I should be grateful I paid $200 for a $50 routerboard and $150 vaporware, but I won't recommend the company, and won't post anything positive until things take a drastic change, specially communication-wise. Being objective, silence is the worst form of marketing and it never bodes well. I guess ironically, the message is loud and clear.
