#169647 Major Announcement: Netduma partner with NETGEAR to launch the Nighthawk XR50...

Posted by abc123 on 12 January 2018 - 01:38 AM

The point is after months and a year of delays and 'very soon" we get it dropped on us like it did. They release a pep rally Twitter message and post on here instead of a contrite and humble apology to it's loyal users and customers.

I say it again.... customers.

It is bad form.....plain and simple.

I can't use the Duma with my current setup unless I don't use my Android tx box because of the 5ghz limitations. When I didn't have the box, my wife would wear me out everyday about the wifi dropping. And the months of slow UI interface issues made it hard to tweak.

Many people have been waiting for the OS to help solve alot of issues with their setup and they can't be claimed for venting frustrations now.

Over a year of waiting.

They could have built a 2.0 version of the Duma and added the OS to it and we would've gladly paid them probably 300 for it.

Well, I vote with my wallet....and if they get a kick back from NG for every purchase, it won't come from me.

The next treyarch COD comes out this fall.....and I'll be in the market for a better router


I am personally sorry that you feel betrayed and are hurt from the actions of Netduma.  Let me ask you a very real question, do you know how NDAs work?  Because you act like they came out all look at the new Netgear router when that was just part of the netgear terms to buy their os...You are their customer, they do love you...don't feel hurt because they had some success, celebrate it with them and look forward to the future...


to dwell on the past is to admit you have no future.

#169603 My Asus router is too powerful to use as a AP.

Posted by abc123 on 11 January 2018 - 06:26 PM

i use a pfsense as my main router then have an access point and have the netduma on it...works fine, just know how to handle a double nat and you will be fine

that's a touching story

#169601 Possiblity of older Nighthawk models getting DumaOS firmware???

Posted by abc123 on 11 January 2018 - 06:24 PM

my guess is no, since they don't make money on their software they make money on people buying their hardware.  They count on gamers to always want the best of the best and that's how they make money.

I think it is most important to realize a couple of things:


1. Netgear will only have a couple of DumaOS features as they aren't using the same OS but just some of the addons of it

2. When you buy a netduma you are buying the software not really the hardware..

  I have bought countless routers and then switched out the OS for openwrt/dd-wrt/tomato...but none of them work perfectly and it always ends up being a frustrating endeavor.  With DumaOS you are using OpenWRT which is perfect and they have then modified it heavily for their features and to make it work perfectly on the hardware.


That's what you bought...the time it takes them to perfect the software to the hardware...i never used the R1 wifi...and i get that people are mad about it...but buy an access point, they are better than any routers wifi...


If you bought a R1 within the last couple months and want a netgear instead sell it and buy that...who cares? i mean the netgear won't have all the dumaos features so why is that even an argument...you are just wanting different hardware, once again you are paying netduma for the software, a big hint to this is netgear a world class hardware manufacture of routers PAID netduma for their software?  so...think before you get angry?


All in all this partnership will allow for more devs to work on DumaOS and hopefully we'll see these types of features only improve more over for the R1 and netgear routers.

#161387 GUI Password Protection

Posted by abc123 on 17 October 2017 - 03:27 PM

It won't show the password in settings, as long as it's ticked then its set. 


too true! i never tested it but if you do a network monitor (Google Chrome -> inspect -> Network) does the JSON payload returned contain the password?


It hopefully doesn't, i just never checked

#161386 PS4 slow via Netduma?

Posted by abc123 on 17 October 2017 - 03:21 PM

Isnt PSN capped bandwidth wise?

yes same as xbox


*edit: PS4 can be tricked into thinking you are multiple people in one house then they give you more bandwidth

#139383 Continually lose the ability to access router via WAN

Posted by abc123 on 07 February 2017 - 10:59 PM

after getting a new desk i had a similar issue...it was because i didn't have the router (main) running to the PoE port on the Netduma


#138482 Jitter

Posted by abc123 on 31 January 2017 - 04:56 PM

The only flaw to that whole thing is finding a tech who knows what ping, jitter, and packet loss is.

he didn't i just showed him the tests and explained...he knew something was wrong then even though the signals were good.


It is a lot of being patient and explaining what is happening to them.

#138009 Jitter

Posted by abc123 on 27 January 2017 - 03:24 PM

I had a jitter issue, as well as packet loss...


Changed modems...nothing changed...


called time warner...complained setup an appointment


went to dslreports.com


ran line quality test

ran speed tests

ran ping test

Captured packet loss with pfsense...


Showed the technician, he replaced all connectors and found one had water in it...problem resolved.

#138006 DumaOS Announcement: Development Progress & Testing

Posted by abc123 on 27 January 2017 - 03:18 PM

#138005 Xbox One DNS Effect?

Posted by abc123 on 27 January 2017 - 03:17 PM

DNS (domain Name Resolution) literally means....


given Google.com, what is the the IP?


Depending on your router it can hold 1-10 DNS servers (,, etc)...


Some routers do a synchronous call,

ask back?



Yay, redirect the device asking for this record with


Some do ASYNC


first response


Yay, redirect the device asking for this record with


In gaming, most homes don't have a domain name associated with them and those that do...xbox live doesn't know or care...


So the only thing you are increasing is the speed for browsing on the web browser on xbox...twitch app on xbox...

the xbox store load times...and maybe like party chat or dedicated server joining..



hope this is something helpful
