Overall, I'm thoroughly impressed with Netgear's XR500 router. (R7800 with a bit more flash RAM with DumaOS GUI equipped)

Yet as a man who enjoys his pasttime playing FPS console games outside of his career... What can WE the consumers expect from the next update? Will Duma's FW be seamless and

Can we reach a mutual agreement on disabling DPI?

The main reason I purchased this Netgear router with DumaOS GUI was for the Geo-Filter functionality. Now everything seems like a marketing gimmick.

What would you like to see as a "gamechanger" for the next update? Please respond below.

"Can we reach a mutual agreement on disabling DPI?"

If you talking about permanently disable - I am against your proposal.

Configurable option do not care much :)

Thanks for the feedback. Could you explain why you would want to disable DPI? It's used for detection and monitoring, it does not interfere with your connection in any way.

 

Could you also expand on why you feel the rest of the OS is a marketing gimmick? We have very powerful QoS, network monitoring etc.

 

As for the next update - the first one will include denial of dedicated servers. But we have SO many more features planned on our roadmap and we're always keen to hear feedback and ideas from our users so let us know what you would like to see!

i think all us XR500 owners are getting a bit fed up waiting on Netgear dishing out an update, one with an "actual update", and not just some trivial bugfix.....

As well as denying dedicated servers as mentioned above, can also allow them. Geo-Filter variable zoom has been added, I'm sure there is something else on the Geo-Filter but cannot remember right this second.

Things I would like to see in the next firmware update or in the near future:

 

1. Dedi server ban

2. Ping Assist

3. Enable the router to perform a speed test without having to go through the whole setup process just to determine speeds as they can vary.

4. Be able to choose other VPN clients rather than forcing HMA on us

5. Peer ping, just for curiosity's sake

 

Regards,

As a minimal/non-gamer who loves the XR500 I would love to see the following in future updates:

1. Ability to specify popular apps and not just games for setting priorities such as: Netflix, Hulu, Youtube (other high resource intensive media sites)

 

2. Channel Optimization. There are many apps out there to optimize and figure out which is the best channel to use but this router has many more channels not just typical channels most 

people use so if there was a way it could auto determine which channel is the clearest with the strongest signal and suggest or auto-connect that would be awesome. 

 

Still, best router I've ever used by far, thanks for all the hard work put into this.

Traffic Prioritization is for low bandwidth applications i.e. games so putting high bandwidth applications under this would have an adverse affect.

 

There is Auto for 2.4Ghz I believe, maybe a WiFi scanner R-App would be something to consider!

 

Great to hear that, you're welcome and welcome to the forum!

One thing I'd like to see in a future update would be able to lock in the values in the 'Set Device Bandwidth' in both upload and download, as it's a little annoying that you have to re-config the values if a device is added or removed.

We can definitely add that, good idea!

Thank you very much for your feedback and keep an eye out for new icons in future DumaOS updates.

 Hi Jack,

                Thanks for the reply. Good to know you have already created icons for the Switch and Google Home. :) Sure the google Home symbol could be used for the Apple HomePod or a smart speaker etc.  :)

 

Would absolutely love symbols for smart watches to cover Apple Watch, Samsung Watch and Fitbit Icons etc. Not forgetting symbols of set of scales and a light bulb for smart lights. :)

The links below might help and should hopefully cover almost every new possible wifi device possible on the market at the moment. 

1.Smart Scale =  https://www.jbhifi.c...athroom scales

2.Smart Lights = https://www.jbhifi.c...Smart lighting

3.Smart Watches = https://www.jbhifi.c...=Smart watches

4.Smart Speakers = https://www.jbhifi.c...Smart speakers

 

Big Apple and Fitbit. :) Lost over 50 kilos around 5 year ago after having a operation for the second time on groin area (double groin hernia). Lost all the weight year after my last operation thanks to my Fitbit smart watch and smart scales.  :)

 

Regards John

 Correct me if I am wrong but isn't IP V6 compatibility dependent on your ISP if it is supported or not?

Question.. just curious as to why anyone would spend more money on a "Gaming router" like the XR500 when you don't use it for it's primary purpose of gaming?

Wouldn't you have been better off with a traditional Netgear router like the R7800 instead and save the extra money if it's intended purpose was not for gaming and just hardware devices that aren't gaming related?

Just saying the XR500 is an AWESOME router one of the best I've owned so far and the DUMA OS for gaming is spectacular and granted it does have powerful hardware to handle more than just gaming but if not used for gaming why spend the extra money?

As a suggestion, I would definitely recommend the anti bufferbloat function to set or program that you do not have to adjust the sliders, so that the system automatically gets the best result for the router or connection ... that would be one of my important points ... sometimes the bandwidth also fluctuates (more or less), the system should automatically apogee

Do you mean that Anti-Bufferbloat alomost has no sliders, but instead decides how much % is perfect for the bandwidth that the user has?
