    The Future of DumaOS: Version 3.0 Last year we released our first major update for DumaOS, Milestone 1.3. You guys loved it, so we quickly got to work on the next milestone, packing it full of features to make your router even more powerful. This next milestone will instead be a new version, DumaOS 3.0, and it marks the biggest leap forward in our history. It will contain a huge amount of features never seen before on a router. Instead of just sending out each of the features piece by piece, we needed to wrap them all up into one giant release. We will explain why soon 😉 (but don't worry, we're not doing an EA!). We know you guys will want to get your hands on 3.0 as soon as possible and we are working very hard to make this happen. But until we are sure, the release date is ‘to be confirmed’. But in the meantime, here is a teaser one of the many features coming to your router in 3.0: Data History. With Data History you can see how much bandwidth you’ve used over time and drill-down to see which devices and/or applications are eating up all your data or find out how many hours you spent gaming over the weekend. If you are under a data cap, you can also see if you are nearing your monthly limit. This is just a small glimpse into 3.0. We will be gradually revealing more features over the next few weeks so keep an eye out for more announcements. One final thing, we launched DumaOS Insiders yesterday. This will be a private subforum where we share first-looks at features we are currently working on and using your feedback to shape them. There are only a few spaces left, so sign up here if you haven’t already: https://forum.netduma.com/topic/29480-sign-up-to-dumaos-insiders/ Big things are coming. Thank you for your support.

    I appreciate the more transparent side of things here now, Fraser. I still think your devs have patching backwards, I know of no other company that releases new operating systems without patches for their software in between major releases. Its just seems to me a retrograde way of doing things. Apple have just released macOS Catalina and its buggy, now imagine if no point releases came until next year with macOS 10.16 Users would go mad and Apple would never sell another computer probably, same for iOS, Android, Windows, Linux etc. That is just not how you do things in my view and no matter what the new version hopes and expectations are it will have bugs, you cant make bug free software, its impossible. I'm just hoping DumaOS 4.0 or another incarnation of DumaOS wont be the fix for DumaOS 3.0's bugs. Until I can see a point release path rather than 8-12 month gaps between updates to fix issues with DumaOS software pushed to Netgear hardware, I've had to remove the XR500 as my daily driver for now and box it up. I'm aware this may not be all your fault believe me, and I know you guys work really hard and I will continue to help where I can, but the XR development cycle in my view is unacceptable as it stands. I look forward though to seeing what your plans are with DumaOS nevertheless. Right time for more more coffee

    Thanks Alex, unfortunately that’s what I kind of feared. Basically bugs that came out in milestone 1.3 in what is rapidly going to become a year soon aren’t going to get patched in other words. Anything DumaOS related will be left until version 3.0. Also no one has a real clue how much Netgear will be interested in any of these new features. Also Current bugs with VLAN tagging, QoS getting slow, port mapping in table view and antibufferbloat getting stuck on and and the leaky hybrid VPN won’t be fixed until this new version is ready and that probably won’t be this year and once again may not come to the XR routers. Is that a fair assumption of the current situation? I appreciate you coming up with a new operating system and it takes great effort to create one, but I am a little taken aback by the lack of patching in milestone 1.3 considering it’s almost a year old and virtually nothing has been done to fix the issues with it on the XR routers, as I can’t speak for the R1. I really wish you had focused on bug fixing Milestone 1.3 first before creating yet another new OS rather than leaving things unfixed and with an air of uncertainty as to whether they ever will be patched , because this all rides on Netgear. I think this could be a problem possibly especially since obviously you can’t promise how long this will take, and I have noted the words ‘early days’ which doesn’t bode well for further fixes in the pipeline for DumaOS as it stands on current Netgear hardware with your firmware. So we could be waiting possibly until next year with no fixes at all on the DumaOs side at all. Also a lot depends on Netgear wanting the new version as well, is that correct? I’m not trying to be negative, I’m just trying to understand where Netgear users stand. I hope you understand my concerns, router stability is created hopefully by fixing issues in current firmware no matter how welcome new features are. However the continued lack of support for patching your own firmware on Netgear hardware I find to be a bit odd. Personally I would need fixes and stability not long gaps where nothing is happening visibly for DumaOS software thats on existing XR routers, because you are busy creating another new version.Fixing the issues first before moving on seems the more logical approach but that’s just from my point of view. Are you going to focus on patching rather than creating new versions of DumaOS, because all new operating systems inevitably are buggy. So Will you patch 3.0 or move onto the next version? I hope you can see my concerns. Good luck with version 3.0 nevertheless.

    I wouldn’t leave it off, I guess perhaps I misunderstood your previous post. I interpreted “why wouldn’t netgear update” as a lack of guarantee they will. I will not be selling or getting rid of the XR500 so I most definitely will at minimum check out 3.0 when it arrives. I completely agree that big overhauls rarely (possibly never?) come to a router after purchase so that is a valid point, I have no doubt Netduma means well and I hope 3.0 meets those expectations. thanks again for your work and communications.

    New profile fields

    I just made a few small changes to profiles. It is now mandatory to specify which DumaOS routers you own. You will be asked this question when you next sign in. This will help us loads with tech support! There are now optional profile fields for Discord, Steam, PlayStation Network, Xbox Live, Nintendo Switch and Battle.net - please suggest any more you would like added Some old/outdated protocols were removed, such as MSN, ICQ, AIM and Jabber. Thanks for being a part of the community! EDIT: I'll add Twitter as well EDIT2: You can now use Facebook to login to the forums if you feel like it

    Selling a house!!!

    I. never realised that selling a house was so complicated, my late moms house had 30 viewings in 7 days and we got a buyer at the asking price, now the paper work has come through and they are asking if we are leaving the light switches and electrical sockets?????? WTF, who takes the light switches and electrical sockets. ??????

    Try this 1. Place geo location on top of server of choice smallest radius(69) 2. Boot game with filtering mode on 3.once you see all servers being blocked and your at the main multiplayer menu expanded the radius between 600-1000 miles 4. Search for a game Let me know if you have any luck

    Thanks for the feedback. I appreciate it's frustrating to have to wait so long for an update, but I assure you that this upcoming version update is totally real, and totally on track. Regarding the XR500, why would we want to leave this update off our most popular product? We are planning on releasing this update to every DumaOS router. We can't promise that it will be a simultaneous release, but any delay would only be caused by time constraints. We would not use a delayed release as a marketing ploy. Bear in mind that the XR500 is by far our most popular product so it's going to be a priority for us. Regarding lack of updates so far, I will say that the vast majority of routers only get bug fixes and security updates. We are bringing a massive update that will add many new features and will represent a huge leap forward for DumaOS, and it will be provided to all existing customers free of charge. How many routers have you had that received an update that overhauled the entire experience and made your router feel like a brand new product all over again? That's what 3.0 is doing to do. Anyway, i'm sorry that you won't support us any longer, but I hope that you'll take another look at us once 3.0 is released.

    Not much of an announcement. One feature that nobody cares about and no fixes for existing issues. no timeline for updates. more empty promises about the new OS fixing all the issues. Going this long without any communication real class act Netduma then when you do you don't even address any of the issues. I guess it is time for a new router I wanted to like the xr500 the only reason I went with netgear again was duma os hoping it would be better but seams it was actually worse.

    Bonjour chtimi PremiĂšrement le xr500 ne peut recevoir que 1gb sur le port wan Sur la Livebox il faut impĂ©rativement mettre le xr500 en dmz pour ne pas avoir de problĂšme de nat mĂȘme si malheureusement le mode bridge serait la solution miracle... car sur la livebox 4 (j'imagine que la lv5 aussi) il a y a malgrĂ© tout des ports priorisĂ© en coulisse ,malgrĂ© la dmz .. Il te faut aussi dĂ©sactiver le wifi, l'upnp et supprimer toute rĂšgle nat/pat sur la lv5 Tu dois avoir la dmz et c'est tout. Et tout tes appareils doivent ĂȘtre connectĂ©s sur le xr500 maintenant j'ai une question sur la lv5 tu me dit 1gb pour ethernet et 1 gb pour le wifi est ce que le dĂ©bit et rĂ©ellement divisĂ© en 2 (un genre de qos dans la lv5) ou est-ce que c'est juste parceque la lv5 n'a que des port lan 1gb? Apres sur le xr500 soit utiliser l'upnp ou portforwarding pour avoir une nat ouvert sur les jeux mais pas les 2 ça crĂ©erait un double nat Et tu dois aussi mettre une adresse Ip fixe pour ta Xbox et ps4 Apres si tu Ă  d'autres question sur le fonctionnement du xr500 (qos,geofiltre...) n'hĂ©site pas Personnellement jai retirĂ© la lv4 et mis le xr500 Ă  la place en utilisant l'authentification orange france dhcp mais malheureusement cette solution rend la qos inutilisable Ă  cause d'un problĂšme de vlan qui j'espĂšre sera modifier dans le prochaine maj du xr500!!

    Thanks! Fraser and I try very hard to keep the community happy. Sometimes it's hard as we're often limited in what we can say, but if the community speaks we let the devs know. Bug reports and suggestions are not falling on deaf ears.

    QOS issues (again)

    To be fair to them I left both the home hub and the R1 there and they both took no notice and didn't blame the hardware. For this one though I'll definitely remove everything so that there's no excuses

    You guys seriously....

    Yah see how things go. It never hurts to give charter a call if need be and have them check your line. That is something I always do. They know me by my first name now if that tells you anything. Not sure what kind of techs you have in your area but if you get a tech that has the newer testing equipment to test your line you will be golden! Zippy.

    Cat 8 ethernet cable doesnt matter. With 5E you're good for 1Gbit at shorter distances and 6 and higher will support 1G long distance and 10G. It doesn't matter for gaming if you're using 5E or 7 unless you have a 10G connection. Higher supported frequency's in cables are not used as the ports between your devices will auto negotiate it's transferspeed.

    Must Be Magic?!

    Not even throttling but there is instances where the lagger can gain the advantage simply due to in game mechanics. If I play at 150ms and you at 4ms. Assume the game has approx. 50ms interpolation lag for 60Hz servers. We are playing on Freqency. You run through the middle, I camp one of the hallways on either side of the map. As soon as I come out of cover and aim and shoot at you, this needs to be put in an update by my console, 0-16ms, send to the server, which takes 75ms, they need to process it in the master gamestate, which takes 0-16ms in theory (time between 1 update) then it gets send to your console, which takes 2ms. Then this gets processed by your client, 50-83ms interpolation lag (time between updates and frame rounding. in the best case it takes 127ms for me to be visible on your screen, worst case it will take 192ms. Average, 160ms. If I use a gun that kills in 300 ms I can have killed you before you finished raising your gun. Also in the above example, in CoD damage is dealt directly, so there is no interpolation delay, but there is a delay for it going in the update to the server, 0-16ms. So actually you would receive damage after just 0+75+0+2 = 77ms best case, or 16 (update rate)+75+16+2+32(frame rounding) = 141ms. So you can actually start recieving damage or be instakilled before I even appear on your screen fully. Also, my shots lag but register at the server after 75ms best or 107ms worst case scenario. What a lot of people forget that with high latency connections, that it gives the lagger a window to shoot at you without having flinch, because you can't shoot back yet. Where it hurts him is that hitmarkers will come at a delay. If situation above was reversed. You would come out of cover and this would be visible to me after 2+0+75+50 = 127ms best case or 16+2+16+75+83 = 192ms. Same numbers. But you fire and your shots hit at the server in 2ms best or 18ms worst case scenario. So I would already be dead at the server before I even see you moving. Now 2 players that both have 4ms to the server: Best case for coming out of cover: 0+2+0+2+50 = 54ms Worst case for coming out of cover 16+2+16+83 = 117ms Average, 85ms delay. You you see, it's not just your ping, but the other guy's ping plays a big role in the gunfight. And this is assuming clean connections which is usually not the case in a online environment. And a server that is not limited by CPU cycles etc etc. If you do the math for LAN with no latency then you will see that it's still not 100% fair. In reality. Most of the times latency is not symmetrical. And game updates are not recieved in exact 16ms intervals etc. Server can be at max capacity. It can go on forever. Low ping just means that you have the lowest possible path to the server. Less hops in between so the least chance of something going wrong. You have the advantage when coming out of cover and in straight up fights. But there is times where you are disadvantaged.

    Source port help

    so i've tested the setup out for the last couple of days...looks like everything is working great! forwarding 3544 to 3074 seems to have solved my input lag issues. you guys have been a lot more helpful than both microsoft and ea regarding this issue. i greatly appreciate the help! i just have to come to terms with losing because i suck instead of lag now lmao... thanks again, boys!!

    TIME OUT !!! Listen guys... i know it's hard to understand but it is what it is and i share everything because it's TRUE and REAL !!! I've shared so many proofs that i don't understand why it's hard like that for you guys to understand...since i'm not only telling things... i fuckin show proofs !!! You mate that only see 60 some hz on COD... i told so many times to manage via wifi not via Lan...and you did it via Lan since it's stuck at 60 hz !!! CALL OF DUTY RUNS AT 120HZ ALL TIME !!! If you use LAN to manage you'll only see 60hz because there is LAN PROBLEMS in DUMA OS !!! .56 firmware is the worst of them all and make the LAN problems even stronger so from .56 i didn't succeeded in stabilising it like i successfully did on all other firmwares for the XR500...every of them are stabilisable while not the last one aka .56 !!! The best firmware for the XR500 is the .40a fix ...not the basic .40... the fix .40 !!! I've also SPECIFIED that you guys follow every steps i shared to achieve the same results !!! For the boys that still pretend cables don't matter... ah ah ah... the transport was the problem and by doing the new cables they allow more bandwith with less latency... SO NEVER I'VE SAID THAT IT WILL CHANGE THE FREQUENCY OF THE DEVICES COMMUNICATING... I SPECIFIED THE CABLES FREQUENCY BECAUSE THAT'S ONE OF THE MAIN ASPECT OF THE NEW GEN CABLES WHICH ALLOW A BETTER TRANSPORT FROM POINT A TO B !!! I'm not sharing my working tips and knowledge just to show i'm something... i'm sharing to help !!! Because even if i can afford a lot of ENTHUSIAST things i really don't like paying for something that don't work as expected... even if it only cost 20$ i don't care... it have to work as intended !!! It's sadly not the case with Duma Os yet... yet because they learned so problems we used to should get fixed and gone in future !!! So because i spent almost 400$ for that router and it wasn't working properly i started to find the problems and ways to overpass them... exactly like i did with the R1 for the last 4years and shared on the forum !!! I know that there's a lot of weird things in life that are hard to explain... but i do try to do my best to find ways to explain things so more people understand things !!! I myself don't trust the first come telling something... i'll search infos by myself and i'll test things by myself and that's what i always suggest... search infos from multitude sources and test things by yourself !!! I force nobody to think like me or to do exactly like me... i share tips and tricks and knowledge (knowledge never come only from reading things...) to help you guys getting the most out of your techs...devices...components...ect so you can enjoy them like supposed to and like i enjoy them day after day !!! English is not my first language so i try to be crystal clear for the majority to understand but it's hard sometimes as we been manipulated all our life so changing mentality is a dawm hard thing to do... but still is doable !!! You have rights to disagree with me... but don't come telling it's bullshit just because your brain can't figure out what i'm saying... and even less if you don't even try by yourself !!! Last thing... stop doing attitude when someones come with other thoughts or ways of seeing/explaining things... we DUMA ARMY are a gamers community and are here to help each others... so we can all fight together in games against the rest of the world... not fighting between us Duma Army members !!!

    Recommended speeds?

    If you were to do a speed test after setting to 70%, you would see the results as 70% of your overall speeds yes. I think Alex meant that the hardware of the R1 doesn't have the same capacity for speed as the XR500.

    The AWS Bahrain server was fully active and functional in MW beta, I always connected to it, the server performance was good, nice 60Hz tick rate, stable ping, smooth gameplay. In BO4 it only pops up in Geo Filter. In all likelihood the AWS server would be used at MW launch.

    Can't wait to try out the Data history! I think It would be cool to see in depth of what happening with my bandwidth on the network. I have a lot of devices on my network, This could really help out with prioritizing the data I want and eliminating devices that is using unnecessary bandwidth. I wonder what the other features will be...
  42. 2 points
    Two things I would suggest - the factory reset on the devices may not have worked correctly so perhaps try setting the WiFi up the way it was before and see if they can connect. If so, forget the WiFi on the devices before changing it. If the devices have the option, try setting up the WiFi manually by actually typing in the SSID, encryption method etc and see if they can connect that way.

    The big announcement will be public. There will be smaller announcements and "concepts" that are shared with insiders. We won't share anything with the public which we might change later, but for the insiders program we're going to be more open and talk about ideas that may or may not come to fruition. The idea with insiders is to gauge interest in things, and figure out if people would actually use the features we're designing in the way that we think they will. It might be that we're working on something that we think is awesome, but nobody would actually use. Hope that makes sense!

    Hey! Thank you for the tip! That opened up the router that was showing upnp failures on the xbox one's that were connected to it and now they're open too. I don't have my full setup at the moment I had to send 2 xbox's into the local repair shop because of faulty hdmi ports but I should have them back Monday to fully test, but so far I have both R1 routers going with 2 xbox's on each and all 4 xbox's are open and the matchmaking is working great. That would be sweet if you ever do increase the limit but I understand not a lot of people or even any asking for it. Not a lot of people have the space with 4-6 xboxs on a network looking to filter the search area at once because when we don't filter it, we match with people on the other side of the world, and the player animations are standing still but you see them moving and jumping, it's not a good time. haha. Thanks you again for the help!

    I feel you pain there, rebooting is not good practice as we know ,for me the main disappointment was when I asked Fraser about the routers future support over a year ago before I purchased I was sold on the answer and swapped my Asus GT Rog rapture for this ,think I made a big mistake as ASUS have that running nicely now. I just keep sitting here in the wings in hope but come the end of the year I’m done to be honest ,it’s a shame really as moved to R7800 from R1 due to Wi-fi bur always waited for something from Netduma to change my mind, I’m just totally F off now and can’t be bothered with it all anymore. I’ve been spun a yarn or to in life but this thread and the replies is just garbage ,I don’t often write on here but read only... needless to say it’s annoying me now .ive left my red dot there for over a week and decided to reboot today ...comical

    ProblĂšme avec upnp

    Bonjour ; je ne pense pas qu'il y ait de solution mais ça serait plus un signalement.. La fonction upnp dans les paramĂštres bug ! Je m'explique : j'ai longtemps ouvert des ports manuellement (port forwarding) du coup je dĂ©sactivsais l'upnp mais le routeur m'ouvrait quand mĂȘme des ports... En en ayant marre de ne pas trouver des bons rĂ©glages, j'ai refait un reset usine, et pour une fois, je ne suis passĂ© que par l'upnp pour ouvrir des ports et non port forwarding. Sauf que.. lĂ  que j'ai bien activĂ© upnp dans les paramĂštres.. il ne m'ouvre plus de ports, du coup je me retrouve en nat modĂ©rĂ© đŸ˜€. Tout ces petits problĂšmes sont relativement embĂȘtant pour rester poli, je n'avais pas ce soucis sur le R1. Alors oui c'est bien parce que le xr500 gĂšre la fibre, youpi, mais derriĂšre, y a toujours un petit quelque chose qui fait qu'on est obligĂ© de retoucher aux rĂ©glages ! De toute façon c'est simple, dĂšs que j'allume la ps4, j'ouvre systĂ©matiquement la page du routeur car je sais que quelque chose qui n'ira pas. Donc lĂ , je viens de perdre 45min Ă  re re rĂ©gler le routeur.. Si vous pouviez le remonter Ă  Netgear histoire qu'ils se bougent un peu parce qu'ils sont plus rĂ©actifs pour encaisser les 300€ que pour nous faire des mises Ă  jour efficaces... IMG_3461.MP4
