At CES today, NETGEAR announced the XR500 Gaming Router, powered by DumaOS. You can read more about this new router here. It is the latest router in the very successful Nighthawk range and is the first router to launch with our hotly anticipated new Operating System, DumaOS.

 
Our plan is to now use this big step forward to grow our team and to make lots of great new features for you guys at a rapid pace. Our partnership with NETGEAR has also allowed us to make DumaOS a really rock solid platform and we have a lot of exciting features in our pipeline which just like before, will be driven by your feedback.
 
The good news is we can now give a launch date for DumaOS on the Netduma R1. It will be 17 April 2018 and as promised before, it will be a FREE upgrade for all users. 
 
If you would like to read more about DumaOS then see our new website explaining the main features and the overall concept: www.DumaOS.com
 
Thank you for your support and we are really excited about 2018. 
 
The Netduma Team

I guess we now know why it was so quiet on the update front. Not really your guys fault but was still painful. Glad to see you guys are expanding and this can only mean more great updates in the future with this new partnership. good luck.

As someone who just bought the NETDUMA a few weeks ago i am extremely upset about this announcement and feel like im getting cheated. The wifi on the duma is bad And doesnt even support 5g. Only reason i went with the duma over the nighthawk was for the geofilter. If i knew this combo was coming out i would have waited.

Will there be a chance to exchange for the new nighthawk running dumaOs? Really unfair for people who just bought the netduma within that last month. This should have been announced around the holidays.

Netgear didn't want this news out until CES. Netduma had zero control over the announcement. Yes it sucks that you bought it now but blaming the company is pointless.

Also I'm pretty sure the R1 will get the most features and updates the fastest because Netgear will have ultimate control over their version of DumaOS. So the R1 is still the best solution with another router as an access point for 5ghz wifi

I don't think so since it uses brand new hardware they just announced.

A bit disappointed to see that I can have the Netgear router at my house Thursday with Duma OS, but I can't have Duma OS on my Netduma router until April?

Thats awesome chaps! Good job, I always thought this might happen ever since its been call OS. Stoked for you guys and hope this enables and supports all your efforts. Spewin I have to wait till April to get Duma OS on my Day 2 R1, but if it's up to the hierarchy, oh well.

My point is i dont want to buy another router for 5ghz. the new nighthawk will Have good wifi and dumaos. There is no reason to have the netduma now. Nighthawk with dumaos >>>

Hi guys. On a business perspective and a way to make the DumaOS a go-to operating system for routers on a wider scale, I clearly understand the move. Which should be better for all in the long run.

On the other hand, I am here to ask about how will the updates on the other routers be like? Will they have back-to-back updates along with the R1 router or will it be slower on for the other routers due to maybe having to be vetted by Netgear's software engineering team?

In your point of view, if it is not under any NDA/contract, which router platform hosts a more feature packed DumaOS in a software perspective since clearly for hardware, the Netgear one obviously wins hands down. So in terms of features inside the DumaOS, which router has more?

As an r1 user I am frustrated to know that the DumaOS is available TODAY on different hardware but that we have to wait until April.

That said from a business perspective I completely understand why you went this route, I really do. Congrats to you guys, you've earned it.

This is very understandable, the move Netduma took with partnership with Netgear, will just help Netduma grow even more, with netgears future routers with DUMAOS will just get better, just slightly a disappointment the routerboard Netduma R1 owners have to wait till April 18, but sense Netgear now has their hands full with DumaOS they also have the say with the Netduma team, but all for it just still a little disappointed with the April official release.
