    sharpz44 reacted to flexingjohn in Option 61 (MER) and XR300 compatibility   
    also my guide is here https://forum.openwrt.org/t/sky-and-dhcp-60-61/39917/13
    For me what i did is download wireshark and install.
    run wireshark and turn off the sky router and boot back up and you should see the sky Credentials with some searching. Write this password down and save it as you need use it to produce HEX Key found here http://string-functions.com/string-hex.aspx 3 once that is done. copy that and save it.
    on my DM200 with open-wrt installed
    Log on to the web interface (default ip 192.168.1.1), you may be asked to set a password
    Navigate to the "network" tab
    Click on the edit button for the wan connection
    2.4) Make sure the protocol is set to DHCP Client (click Save and Apply if any changes are made)
    Navigate to the "Advanced Options" tab
    Add the final key you generated into the Client ID field Thats the HEX Key
    Add 6.14.1aN_UNI|PCBAFAST2504Nv1.0 to the Vendor Class field
    Click "Save and Apply"
    On the WAN Page go to physical setting and add this in the interface drop down box "dsl0.101" save and apply
    and all done i had internet.

    I actually meant it to be funny but I guess it misfired. Oops.
    Yeah that's it, Nighthawk and DumaOS are two separate things. The DumaOS app will control more than just Nighthawks, and the Nighthawk app will control more than just Pro Gaming devices.
    I don't think there will be a massive conflict. The Nighthawk app can only control the generic Netgear settings that sit behind DumaOS, whereas the DumaOS app will be able to control the DumaOS features specifically. Hopefully we'll be able to control the Nighthawk specific features as well, because otherwise you'd need two apps.

    Yes it was , I remember talking to Jack about that. Well over a year ago, in fact only a few months after the XR500 release, so I'm surprised its a "Interesting idea" to Alex. Then again maybe not so surprised as its probably not on the devs priority list...

    Personally if the HG612 works well and meets your line requirements I would stick with it,plus it`s unlocked so obviously you have acees to line stats if needed.

    nice one, i completely misread a table indicating the DM200 as being Broadcom when indeed , it is not, cheers ....
    are there no Broadcom "Pure" modems out there other than the HG612....?
    or what modem/router combo is best to use ? (just to use in bridge mode) . i.e. Zyxel VMG8924  ?
     
    Would there be any advantage at all going from a HG612 (unlocked) to a Zyxel VMG8924 ?

    What makes you you think its okay to apologise for those that whine with genuine issues? Sure you like DumaOS and the router is the best in your view maybe but not everyone agrees though. It's always best to speak for yourself, not other people on mass. We all have different views, yes sing its praises that's fine, but do that for yourself as your voice is not that of all DumaOS users probably. Also to say  "Thanks for putting up with our whining" is a little patronising I find. I cant speak for anyone else of course though

    yeah firmware check was first thing i did (latest BT one was already on there).
    checking the speed on the modem GUI was the second thing, 74 Down, 13 Up.
    I know my cabinet is a Huawei and my old modem, an Openreach HG612 (unlocked) is also Huawei chipset, I was getting about 9Mbps extra from it.
    So maybe moving to the Draytek was a bad idea after all...
    After several factory resets on the XR500, im now getting a steady 53Mbps Down and 11Mbps Up reported by the router.....  thats still 13Mbps of a drop from using the old HG612 Openreach Modem.
    Think i will just switch back to the Huawei... despite its age (performance is everything.... so my wife says ? LOL!)

    Never got rid of that message on the XR500 and its been reported enough, it was also present on the R7800 and was never fixed and to be fair I have seen it on other routers, it takes ages getting NAT type normally then gives that warning. Possibly a firewall issue maybe you could try without DoS protection although they are Netgears own additions to the firewall they cause issues like filtering ICMP on IPv6... Never had issues playing though so you should be fine. I would leave the settings as they are tbh.

    I had this issue I thinks it’s something to do with the router as the R7800 it’s built off does it too. My RAX120 does not give me that message and that’s with a mtu of 1492 and PS4 on auto. Saying that I never had issues playing with that message either.

    When I was using the Vigor 130, I couldn't neither. When I wanted to look, I have to disconnect the Duma and plug ethernet from laptop to Vigor, only then could I access its GUI.

    sharpz44 reacted to xtentions in XR500 Firmware version 2.3.2.56 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.

    sharpz44 reacted to Killhippie in ANNOUNCEMENT: The Future of DumaOS: Version 3.0   
    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.

    No, There are a few of us on here that would like to see a Duma only router and not a XR series Netgear/Netduma router. Basically we would like to see a new R2 so to speak. Nothing has been reported or anything like that. Its just there are a few of us that would love to see something like this in the future. Id be blown away if they actually had something in the works already. But I highly doubt that because there focus has been on the new milestone.. I just think it would be a very smart move for them when they have the time and effort to do such a thing.. Its just a wish atm.. Nothing reported.

    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
