  1. Of course the basic setting like WAN information if it is static but for me the DHCP table. I have some reservations and it would be nice not having to write the mac address in again after a reset. I don't have a port forwarding rules but I image that other people would like that also.
  2. I cannot use wifi calling on my Samsung Galaxy S9. I really dont use it but I went ahead and tested it. I took my phone to another wifi network and I could connect so I can confirm that for some reason it does not work behind my R1 Duma OS router. I'm running the latest firmware. I also forgot to mention that I am not using the wifi on the router itself. I am using the Linksys Velop configured in bridge mode (no firewall so it's just an WAP).
  3. Now that I have Duma OS installed (btw everything is working great so far) it will be my pleasure to test out the hybrid VPN function. I use NordVPN. Keep up the good work.
  4. Great news. Let's hope I made top 50. Lol. Hope to see you all on the other side.
  5. It would be my pleasure to test it out. I currently use it with NordVPN.
  6. Well this changes everything. No Anti-Jitter/Anti-Spike features on the Netgear. I was interested on the Netgear because of the CPU being superior so that it could maintain higher VPN speeds but with those lack of features it's best to stay with the R1. I guess the only thing to be seen is if the Netgear down the road will be getting Anti-Jitter/Anti-Spike features or not. Congrats to NetDuma for you partnership.
  7. Like others here I'm a little bummed that DumaOS is going to first be offered thru Netgear but it's understandable that they did this move. It's the best way to get the DumaOS on more products. I would not be surprised if it wasn't Netgear who approached Netduma first. Linksys came out with the Linksys WRT32X with the "Killer Engine" and we all know Netgear and Linksys are always going back and forth. So Netgear needed to compete and bam...the NightHawk XR500 came to be. In any case I am interested in finding out how the VPN will work on the XR500. I love my R1 router but the only thing that was a let down was the VPN speed that it can offer. Due to the R1's CPU any VPN connection could only sustain speeds around 10MB. I was always interested in perhaps avoiding DDOS attacks in Destiny (for Trials) by using the R1's VPN capabilities but running at 10MB's wont do (come to think of it, even at high speeds it might not be recommended to use a VPN connection for something like Destiny trials). Not sure if anyone has tried it with success. Does anyone here think that the Netgear XR500 would be able to sustain VPN connections close to 100MB's? I know that I can enable a VPN connection on my computer using the VPN software to get thoses speeds but not thru the R1 router. Dual 1.7 Ghz CPU sounds like enough but I don't know enough so if any of you early adopters can report back it would be greatly appreciated. One more quick observation...$300 sound a little high for the Netgear XR500. I just looked at the specs for the Linksys WRT32X and it comes with a dual 1.8 Ghz CPU for $249 on Amazon but I don't know enough about the "Killer Engine". I Love NetDuma and want to stay loyal but just like they choose a path for their business model and new DumaOs we as consumers have to choose where to best spend our hard earned cash.
  8. First time posting here. Nothing but praise for the Netduma. Everything is working correctly but I wanted to know if anyone knows the answer on how to block incoming ICMP requests (ping). To test this, I went to ShieldsUp! website (https://www.grc.com/x/ne.dll?rh1dkyd2) and choose the common ports test. This is a simple test that will scan common ports to see if they are open or in worst cases vulnerable. The Netduma passed all the test except for blocking incoming ICMP requests. This is the message that ShildsUp! says about this issue: Ping Reply: RECEIVED (FAILED) — Your system REPLIED to our Ping (ICMP Echo) requests, making it visible on the Internet. Most personal firewalls can be configured to block, drop, and ignore such ping requests in order to better hide systems from hackers. This is highly recommended since "Ping" is among the oldest and most common methods used to locate systems prior to further exploitation. I would like to clarify to the community just in case that this "failure" does not mean that the Netduma's firewall is not working correctly. It is but ICMP blocking is just an added step so they don't even know your there. I have enabled Stealth Mode under Settings/Miscellaneous Settings but at least on my Netduma this does not block the incoming ICMP requests. Is there a way to enable this option? Thank you in advance and once again thank you for this great product!!!!!
