    R1 DumaOS Briefly Delayed

    My line is not perfect and it will never be but the r1 and specially the edgerouter x has given me a+ a+ a+ but the x500 did not, the bufferbloat and ping spikes were horrible. I'm not saying the x500 is a bad router for all but it didnt work for me. I'm perfectly fine with my setup right now I have good ping good smooth gameplay even though I have cable. I pay for 100dn 10up my actuall speeds are 118dn 12up. I understand cables is shared and can cause some hiccups at times but at least in my area I haven't experienced anything crazy that I need to change my isp. My modem is a arris 6183 which has a Broadcom chip by the way. My internet was find before and didnt have any issues. The only reason why I bought the x500 was because you know us humans always trying to go for the new most current toys. But sometimes the new and best toys can be a headache and not work as expected. So in my case I just went back to my original setup and everything is back to normal. By the way I'm in orange county california and if people want to challenge me at any of the new shooter games one in one or want to get carried I'll take on any fiber dsl service you have and kick your a55 even with my bad congested cable. Lol

    XR500 VS R1 BUFFERBLOAT.

    I bought the xr500 and was very excited to plug in and get it going but it didnt work as I expected. My bufferbloat was bad my ping was fluctuating quite high when testing using ping plotter. I try moving the sliders around and it just wouldn't stop the ping spikes or bufferbloat . I have an arris modem 6183 maybe the two just dont get along very well I dont know. My bufferbloat is so much better when plugging my PC directly to the modem I actually get a A A A+ for the bufferbloat so I know it's not my line quality or my isp. I'm gonna keep on messing with the settings tonight if I cant fix it it's going back to the store. I bought the xr500 to see if dumaos was better than the R1 as far as the bufferbloat and ping spikes they are both about the same for me actually the r1 gave me better results . I also purchase the edgerouter x and that thing is amazing when you turn on sqm it's the only router that has kept my bufferbloat and ping spikes to a minimum. I wreally as hoping the xr500 with the dual core 1.7ghz cpu was as good or better than the edgerouter x but it's wasnt. I think maybe the xr500 hasn't been optimized yet, after all its netduma first time dealing with 2 core cpu and 5ghz wireless band and other specs the r1 never had for now most likely xr500 it's going back to the store.

    What if Netduma is planning on completely selling the Dumaos and give up all the rights then work for Netgear themselves. Ummm it makes me wonder!!

    R1 DumaOS Briefly Delayed

    No update yet!!! I see a lot of interesting comments, at least they getting lots of website traffic at a small cost of possible negative comments. I wonder if this is good marketing strategy.

    R1 DumaOS Briefly Delayed

    We were told for years that "it's not about the hardware it's all about the software" if that's true then I have high spectectations that r1 can handle it. Also I feel bit disappointed because of the long software delay. I feel like I paid for the software and not the hardware for 200 bucks I expected more frequent updates and that hasn't happened.
