I agree. The Wifi is really bad. They never fixed that. I just hope with the DumaOS everything will work better. We will see what the future brings

The wifi on the R1 will never change.  It's hardware related.  The new DumaOs will not fix this

why will the netgear not have anti-jitter? or willl it be added in april?

isn't anti-jitter the best feature of duma os? i would buy the netgear but not without anti-jitter :huh:

Netduma decided to keep this feature for the R1.  They can't give all the toys to Netgear...LOL

The R1 is not running the DumaOS... the software "theory" may be similar to what we're running, but it is not the same.
And the feature set is different as well. Basically like comparing oranges to tangerines; similar but not at all the same.

You are correct. The current R1 is not running the latest DumaOS. What I’m saying is that once the latest DumaOS is released for the R1, it will be very similar to what is on the Netgear now. The R1 will have the “anti-jitter/anti-ping” as the Netgear will not. The only thing I see that the R1 can’t offer is better WiFi and that just due to the limitations of the current R1 hardware. Just remember now, when Netduma first came out, the whole intention was to release a device that can help gamers with their lag/ping and geo-location as to how we connect to people around the world. At the time, the hardware they chose was sufficient as to what they were trying to accomplish. Fast forward to now...the R1 still works and runs stable, but it just needed better WiFi....and now it does! I’m pretty sure eventually the R1 hardware will be update (I think) but only the Netduma clan knows this answer!

The actual OS is different... it's not the same as what you currently have on the R1. It's not just a GUI over the current 1.03.6(?) firmware we have access to.


The DumaOS has been been updated and is designed to run more efficiently. The theory of the software is still the same....it was just made easier for non technical minded people to setup. Although...some things has been improved for the end user.

Can this be answered please?

Some of the features have been “tweaked” to run more efficiently. The Netgear router offers better WiFi features if that’s important to you because of the processing power and latest technology that the Netgear offers. The anti jitter/anti spike feature is only available to the R1. This feature is not available on the Netgear. If WiFi is important, the Netgear is the way to go as you will never get the WiFi features that Netgear offers compared to the R1 and what it offers hardware wise. I hated running 2 separate devices. One for the geo-filter and one for WiFi. With the Netgear, I now have the best of both worlds!

People just need to remember that Netduma is a software based company and Netgear is a hardware based company. The key is the software! But by implementing the 2....you now have one badass gaming router that I doubt other companies can compete with as the geo-filter is proprietary! That’s the one that makes Netduma stand above the rest!
