In Topic: R1 DumaOS Briefly Delayed

A week ago

A piece of my heart just died inside... It is what it is...

Should of removed the floor for a cleaner look, are you using Thrausi in C4D.

Haven't tried playing with that plugin, but I might look into it. I used polyfx and broke up the logo into quadrangles with a little help of the knife tool.


I think all your work is excellent and this is no exception.


You do some wicked cool stuff... :D

Thanks Fuzzy!

Good job ;)

Thank you Locosano, I appreciate the feedback

Thanks for all the feedback fellas, the whole idea of the video was to put aside doubts and prevent any letdowns the XR500 may of come with. By no means is it to bash or to be against buying the XR500 but to empower your mind with an informative decision.

In Topic: Major Announcement: Netduma partner with NETGEAR to launch the Nighthawk XR50...

Hi all, 


I can't respond to you all personally so I will answer the general themes I have seen in the comments. Thank you for all the kinds words and the feedback. 




Can you exchange the R1 for the XR500 or get a discount towards the XR500?

- Netgear are a separate company so that wouldn't be possible.

Can we put DumaOS on our existing Netgear router? 

- No you can't. Unless Netgear decide in future that they want to allow that.

 Why April if DumaOS is ready now?
- DumaOS for the R1 has/will have more new and exciting features which therefore takes longer to perfect. As it is slower hardware we also need to do a lot of speed optimisations. As well as doing the Settings section ourselves. The XR500 utilises Netgear settings integrated with DumaOS.
Availability outside the US?
- That is a question for Netgear but I'm sure they will branch out of the US soon.
How fast will updates come out/will there be new features?
- The R1 will have faster updates and new features in the long run.
The price is too high.
- We don't have any influence on how Netgear calculate the final retail price.
Does the XR500 have the Anti-Jitter/Anti-Spike feature?
- No, that is on our R1 roadmap.


No anti-jitter on the NetGear XR500? Ok time to take my trusty R1 off of Craigslist then!  Congratulations with the NetGear partnership fellas, I'm glad other routers are recognizing how great your software really is! One more question before completely throwing away the idea of buying an XR500; will the Netgear XR500 have r-apps?
