    lilstone87 got a reaction from chand93 in ANNOUNCEMENT: DUMAOS 3.0 IS HERE   
    I am not included in their group regarding the R1. So take my comment's as only my opinion on the matter. But if I had to guess, the current build they have for the R1, just isn't ready for more testers. When you all see delay's, and things get quiet for a little bit. Just think a little bit. Work is likely being done a good amount, to fix some current issues, before the beta starts.
    To be real honest with some of the comments I have seen in this thread. I feel some people expect the beta to be great at the start, and be able to use it, without any issues. People need to calm down their expectations. As the early part of most beta's are pretty buggy, and the hope is none of the bugs are in the "major" category.

    Well I'm sure with the start of the beta, they would rather people who have got in keep it to themselves. Obviously once anyone is testing the beta.. that's what the beta forums is for on Netgear's site. Which means keep things under wraps. I'm sure there's some kind of NDA for testing the beta build.

    Roger that lilstone87,
    I'll keep that in mind if i get picked,do you know if invites are still going out,been checking my email and still nothing.
    Usually closed betas do have a somewhat strict NDA and as it transitions into an open beta the rules relax but even then there is a NDA in regards to what can be done and shown.

    I believe those selected for the first batch should have already received their emails - do double check spam/junk folders just in case - so if you don't have one then you won't have made it into the first batch. Keep an eye out though for the next batch.

    @[email protected] Christine on the NG forum will resolve that for you.
    To everyone else, as lilstone has mentioned the first emails have gone out so double check to see if you have one. Don't worry if you haven't got it as new waves/batches will kick off soon. It worked on a first come first serve basis.

    The problem is, I filled out my netduma forum id for my xr500 instead of my netduma forum id. So someone from the netduma/netgear staff is going to have to help me out?

    Just wanted to update everyone who have XR routers, and signed up for the beta. Netgear posted a little while ago, they have selected the first round of testers, and sent email's to them. So if you didn't get a email today, you will have to wait till the next round of invites are sent out.

    There hasn't been any word on release for it yet.. except netduma guys saying very soon. However that might be for the R1, and not the XR models. As Netgear controls the release for that. Also with the beta being a limited release at first, they may ask people testing it, to stay quiet about it, in public forums, and such. I could be wrong on this, but I just feel they might do that. As not everyone will get access to it, at the start.

    IPv6 support for gaming really isn't ready for prime time. I would for sure keep IPv6 disabled, if you're gaming.

    So I can not disable ipv6 on the modem I have. 
    But ill disable it on the router. Hopefully that makes it better.

    lilstone87 got a reaction from Tommy1987 in Not getting the ping I was expecting   
    Hello Tommy1987,
    I see you're trying to get a better ping, I'm guessing for online games. Well that can be tricky, as no router can magically make your ping better overall. However in certain situations, some features can help though. Like if you're on a home network, with your internet being nearly maxed out often. Using a feature like QoS, can help keep one device from maxing things out, while keeping bandwidth reserved for a device you have given a "high" priority.
    As for you mentioning speedtest giving you a lower ping, and mentioning something else giving you a higher ping. I'm guessing that "something else" is a game you're playing. Well here's the thing. Popular speedtest sites, have a ton of test servers, and they will auto select a server very close to you. With that you get a very low ping. However with games, even the most popular one's like COD. Even for the size of the USA, there's maybe only 10, or so, server locations. Which means, if you happen to live in a certain part of the USA, you might be a good distance from the nearest server. Which there's nothing a router can do to help that. As the router can't magically move these servers closer to you.
    Also depending on your ISP, if they don't have good routing to servers, that can also make your average ping stay higher. Again something router can't help with. With geo filter, you can try moving the area you search for a server, away from the one you're connecting to, to see if maybe another nearby server, gives you a better average ping. Anyways I hope this helps you, if you have more questions, post them, and we will try to answer them the best as possible.

    lilstone87 got a reaction from Netduma Fraser in Netduma Beta   
    As LegendMask said, this is a beta. So bugs, and such, are very possible. If having your network as stable as possible is important to you, you might not want to run the beta. As for the beta causing your router to lock up, and not work, to the point it's difficult to recover it from that point. I say that's very unlikely. As I'm sure Netduma, and even some of Netgear's staff, have been testing this new build for a little bit. Enough to the point of expanding the number of testers, with this "beta" release. So if it releases this week, or whenever it does. Just know they feel pretty comfortable releasing it to more people.
    Still there's a good chance someone will find a bug, or two, within this newer build. It's impossible to find all bugs, with a very low number of testers. However once that number increases, so does the chances of bugs being found. Due to people running their own set of features on these routers. Not everyone will be using the same features.

    This sounds all good in your "own" head. Until there's 100/1000's running a beta build, software bugs appear, with a ton of people complaining about the same bugs. On top of that, you will likely have some taking it to far, and bashing the people who are hard at work on the software for these routers. With a limited number of people to start off, it's easier to communicate between testers, and the dev's working on the software. Without having a few bad apples, being rude about something being bugged, and not working, exactly how they expect it should right now.
    Trust me the people who work on the software, want everything to work great the first time. However that isn't possible 99.9% of the time. So when something is wrong, they want to hear positive feedback. Not unhelpful bashing of something not working properly.

    Hello to all the Netduma Team & the old school members ! Its been a while.
    It's great to hear you've started the rollout of Netduma 3.0 beta 😎
    Congratulations !! 🎉
    To say everybody has been on lockdown due to the Plandemic, it's good to hear about your continued work.
    I see the forums toxicity is still present with some thinking they're entitled to something straight away & ignore the reasons why you might not have been as quick as you wanted to be with releases. I bet it's difficult to juggle business after recognition, partnering & expansion which has had a springboard effect probably higher than first anticipated.
    As always, best of luck going forward & all the best for the future 🤞👍
