I can understand the frustrating coming from customers who have bought the R1 router including myself, I can also understand that the DUMAOS firmware needs to be 100% working before offering this to customers.
But i feel its just excuse after excuse now. I have had my router for over 2 Years now. below is the selling point of the Netduma R1.
NETDUMA R1 ROUTER£149.99
The Netduma R1 is the only router in the world designed to crush lag and optimise your home’s Internet
The Netduma R1 is compatible with all Internet connection types (e.g. dsl, adsl, Fibre etc), all Internet Service Providers and all modems. You will also be provided with the correct power cable for your country.

**DumaOS will soon be launched as a free upgrade for all Netduma R1 users**
That last line has been there for over a year now. At this moment in time you are misleading customers and advertising this product incorrectly. I feel we will never see the DUMAOS for the r1, I hope im wrong!
My reasons behind this are the following
DUMAOS is currently running on the Nighthawk XR500 which has a Dual Core 1.7GHZ CPU compare to the R1 Atheros 600Mhz CPU! - Will DumaOS be stable on the R1?
NightHawk also has 256MB of Flash and 512MB of RAM compare to the R1's 128MB - Will the R1 run DumaOS Again?
Even IF DumaOS did get released for the R1 i feel it may be slow and not very stable at all or it will be a cut down version of the Firmware.
Please can us the paying customer have a update what is happening with this release please?
