    AnnonymouS reacted to Netduma Fraser in ANNOUNCEMENT: The Future of DumaOS: Version 3.0   
    You definitely raise some good points with monthly updates, I'll let Alex answer that though as the updates would likely come from him.
    I don't want to say too much but if our vision wasn't what you wanted then it would be, you'll see what I mean. The initial DumaOS version was a huge over haul of the software, even if it looked just like a reskin with a few new things or existing features done differently, that really paved the way to this update. We're not going against the modular approach, you'll see. We can't just include features for gamers, gamers have families, they have data caps etc. As much as they may want the gaming features if we didn't provide other things then they may go elsewhere. We're finding a good balance. I am very confident you'll be pleased with what you see.

    But does that vision go hand in hand with what the customer wants?
    It took 3 years to come up with DumaOS which is bascially just a nicer looking modular OS but with pretty much 0 new features. The post release roadmap was to deliver modular feature add-ons in short succession. But that has long been droped and now (for whatever reason) everything has to be bundled into one new DumaOS 3.0 which totally works against the initial modular approach. So why again have we waited 3 years for DumaOS then?! I start to get the feeling that the main driving factor for DumaOS was Netgear and that there MUST be a reason for why those "over-promissed" features havent been released individually yet. The original R1 OS may have had some expansion bottlenecks, but at least it was WAY more responsive and easier on the CPU. I mean the new DumaOS isnt even mobile compatible, and its 2020!
    And to come back to my first sentence about what the customer wants, i could care less about another overhaul of the netduma interface or its traffic monitor. The R1 is a gaming router and not a device for network engineers who need to track down traffic sources. So why would a gamer need a traffic history in the first place? People who need that buy different routers with far more monitor capabilities. The idea of the R1 is to activate congestion control and forget about lag and all the complicated stuff.
    And talking about congestion control, last year some really impressive progress has been made in terms of congestion control. And it will not take that much longer until you can natively use those with Linux. So the R1 will soon get some severe and free competition that doesnt require you to reduce your bandwith to 70%. Im curious to see who is faster with the release, but deep down i already know the answer. Plus im not even sure if the R1 congestion control can beat Googles congestion control from 2016, Iain didnt include it in the benchmarks from 4 years ago.
    Netgear isnt stupid, when taking the congestion control out of the equation there isnt all that much that separates the R1 from the competition. Geo filtering becomes less and less important as more and more games use dedi servers plus dont enforce world wide lobbies. And the VPN function kills the R1 CPU plus most competitive shooters straight up ban you for VPN-ing anyway.
    After 4 years you guys better have some REALLY good features in the oven. Luckily it is no longer our job as the community to make pressure but for the first time the competition will now do that. And maybe you will listen more to what they have to say than what we had to say over the last 4 years...

    If so, why have we not seen anything come out for a long time. I have been here on this forum from the beginning of the R1 and you know that. I wished you guys would have stayed on your own instead of teaming up with Netgear . That way you would be in control to do want you want to do. All you guys needed was to have your own line of routers and more staff to carry it out.

    New router. DumaOS is awful to use. Device manager never loads. Takes forever to load the home page. I have tried different browsers. Resetting the router.  I see many people have had this issue for a long time. Is there a fix coming for this or should I return this router and get one the works??? Honestly these products using DumaOS should be taken off until this problem can be resolved.

    The wizard setup doesn't work properly. Sometime it will run the whole wizard setup correctly and some other time it will run a broken wizard setup. It will not load some option page to let you choose during your initial setup like WAN Port Preference between Internet Port (1Gbps) or 10G LAN SFP+Port (10 Gbps), Checking Internet Speed, or the Firmware Update. Some page will become not responsive after your press the button next, it takes forever to load or it freeze..

    AnnonymouS reacted to Netduma Admin in higher ping .. better?   
    Just to chime in here - for most players lowest ping = best connection. But the great thing about the Geo-Filter is you can experiment with different server regions and password nice you find the server you love, guarantee that you will play on the same server with the same ping each time. 
    For example, some of the UK guys on here prefer the French server to the UK server. 
    So by all means experiment with different servers to find your favourite. Just remember to reboot the game after making Geo-Filter changes

    It might not even be necessary to reboot honestly because SFP adapters are hot-swappable meaning swap in/out while powered on, but i did a reboot anyway. You may also check under internet setup tab that 10GLAN SFP+ is selected and not Internet port. I left SFP+ module detection on auto.
    If I would've known this was a fix for the WAN drops, and I get an extra LAN port from it, I would've done this MUCH sooner. Thank you to @Micbot for finding this.
     
    The SFP I used, as linked earlier in this thread, this is a 1Gbps SFP for $20.99, not a 10Gbps SFP+ which is around $200:
    10Gtek for Netgear AGM734-10000S, 1000Base-T Copper SFP Transceiver, 100m, RJ45 Connector

    AnnonymouS reacted to TTedd in XR700 periodic WAN disconnects   
    Here to report same issue occurring for me with v1.0.1.2 and v1.0.1.8 firmwares.  Both exhibit periodic dropping of WAN side connection, typically every 5-10mins.  No lights change color, from outside view unit is working fine to the eye.  Monitor shows WAN restarting every 5-10mins, drops and restarts in about 3-5 secs.  Symptoms are seeing dropped packets, experiencing period of delayed/no response to outbound commands, severe lag or being dropped from games , etc.... as you would expect for this type of operational issue.
     
    v1.0.0.20 does not exhibit same issue.  WAN connections remains solid over weeks + of usage.  Monitor shows no dropping of WAN connection. With issue repeating across multiple newer firmware releases I have now requested to a ticket with netgear asking help to address my dysfunctional router behavior.   No response received in past 48hrs.
     
    Would appreciate any confirmed resolution help ... tried everything I can think of including erasing settings, fresh downloads, run with settings default, run with minimized functionality, etc, etc... even standing on one leg, with hand over one eye, muttering good luck charms as you hit download button did not make any noticeable difference.  (just kidding on this latter part!)

    I think there are some servers which are shaking as peers which we will need to update our Cloud for to recategorise. 
    You should always see an icon on your map when in a game. If this is not happening, please let us know. 
    Good to know you’re seeing a Florida server - we’ll reperform the test on Monday and update the Map. I suspect more are being switched on as the game grows.

    Hi Duma Army,   We need to announce that the free upgrade of our new software, DumaOS, for the Netduma R1 will need to be briefly delayed due to unexpected requirement from our Legal Team. Our lawyers have advised that DumaOS on the R1 must be backwards compatible.   In other words, if you install DumaOS onto the R1 you should always have the option to reinstall the older R1 firmware if you prefer to go back. We had not designed the DumaOS integration with the R1 to allow for this as DumaOS is superior. But based on legal advice we now must redo the integration to allow for this. It should take, at absolute most, a few more weeks. Nothing more as we have everything else working.   We realise you have been waiting patiently for this upgrade and this last-minute delay is frustrating. Our entire development team is working flat out to get this last bit fixed as soon as possible as we really want you all on DumaOS.   For what it's worth, we're as frustrated as you are as we can't wait to start making lots of new R-Apps (features) for you all.    We will get this last piece done as soon as possible and then it will be full steam ahead in delivering an explosion of new DumaOS features for you all.   Thank you for your continued support.   The ND Team

    Why do I have to reboot the router 10 times a day since I’ve purchased it? I have factory reset and reverted to old firmware countless times. Doesn’t matter what I do, I still have this problem. Can you guys not just monitor a router and see when this happens and fix whatever faulty issue this 300 dollar “gaming” router has? Shouldn’t a gaming router help with gaming instead of kicking you out of a game every hour?

    So.. I was doing some googling about Netduma and found Lain had issues with on of the guys helping him develop the Netduma software.
    The guys name is Maccabi and he helped fix the lag comp on MW3 back in the day.  Check out his twitter post about Lain.
     
    Seeing as "company I shall not name " made an "official statement" my turn..
    sorry would've been quicker but you know legal bods like to make sure you aren't posting libelous comments and all that
    As you know I came back from the gadgetshowlive as was terminated by netduma as they "claimed they had no money left to pay me" , what many people may not be aware of is for months way many months before launch i worked for them for free. I offered to return to that arrangement as they were quote "broke" and they turned me down it was at this point it was obvious they were about to screw me... wasn't actually until feb they actually started paying me a basically a fraction of what i would have normally charged for what i was doing for them. But hey i figured as i told many people the "investment" of my time for free when they became successful would pay off...shame i didn't know then what i do now about their "less than above board practices and utter unprofessionalism.
    again for those now jumping up and down how great and honest these guys are.. think back to when i was announced as cm and all the glowing comments they gave me as they were both utterly clueless as to what the hell they were doing. Nothing went out be it tweets, youtube videos, press releases ect without then running it by me.. this is a fact . Heck the one time i left them to their own devices they gave our companies twitter account over to a kid and couldn't understand why i was pissed about this , kinda weird being at codchamps and seeing codchamp tweets i didn't send go out. I should add as the "kid in question" now basically works for them and met me at gadgetshowlive before you get all defensive you are me pre gadgetshowlive..just remember that mate , a day after you met me they screwed me ...might want to think about that some more eh?
    They then screwed about paying what was owed claiming they had other people who they owed money too to pay off first... " Feel free to deny this but i still have the emails so unlike you i don't need to fabricate stuff or make false allegations yes I am SOOO going to mention you swatting me now because your asshats .
    They can't make any further statement "due to legal reasons" want to know what those legal reasons are... and the reason i have been so quiet recently.. "company I shall not name " SWATTED (well in fairness swatted isn't the right word they "cybered" me is more apt as they went out of their way to @#$% me virtually and the result was i ended up in the hands of the cyber crimes unit -see cybered...cyber even majorly depressed i still got teh funnies)
    They made up a bunch of false allegations and a result of which is as my close friends know my life has turned to put it bluntly @#$%.
    I didn't even know about this till months later.. months I hasten to add I had just written off the moneies owed, and months of blood, sweat and tears i'd put into making their company a success only to be screwed over.
    Unfortunately unlike me some people instead of being adults and professional and just move on decided to be vindictive.
    Yes folks this is the sort of company I had the misfortune to be associated with, and why did they do that? They were "butt hurt" over my 100% factual twitlonger months back over being forced to sleep on someone elses floor because my room mate ( a company director no less) decided to shag some slapper he picked up and promised to make a "booth babe" -- go on deny that too its not like half the people organizing the gaming section at gadgetshowlive weren't present to witness that. Or maybe it was as i called one of them anti semetic for telling me not to mention publicly i am Jewish as you didn't want to "offend" potential customers.. cos at the time alot of their sales were from the Arab states or maybe it was because they took offence as I highlighted they were ripping off epsilon with what was owed to them for sales using their discount code?
    Whatever reason they did what they did, what i hoped would just be easily resolved has now dragged out to a whole pointless waste of thousands of tax payers money and police man hours who could've i'm sure being investigating actual crimes.( months of investigations, being raided by the police ect all adds up you know). My only other theory is during the time as again some of you know i was still fighting to get what was owed to me i started legal action against them and decided to stop and just drop the matter as i realized it would end up involving people i class as friends or at least friendly with.
    long story short.. they made a false allegation ( with "supporting false documentation" ), I was arrested at my house, had my pc laptop bagged up and then taken to two separate police stations before finally being interviewed by the cyber crimes unit who had to come all the way from another county poor guys. I'd like to say the matter was then done and dusted but nope because some people are so @#$% petty and vindictive they wouldn't drop it so lets just say there is still an ongoing "legal issue" that i will happily carry all the way through as it means i will be able to have EVERYTHING put on file and in the public domain. ( have fun trying to deny @#$% then )
    Having never been arrested or fallen foul of the law before the whole experience was utterly terrifying. Since then as I live in a small village i have been the subject of numerous "rumors" from the locals as all they saw were riot vans and me being carted off by the police computers in tow.. so i'm sure you can all imagine the muttered accusations i have heard under my breath from the locals since then. Nothing nicer than getting off the bus and hearing old folk whisper thats te guy who was busted for drugs, or my personal fav kids screaming pedo down the road at me cos you know yeah really makes me wan to go out that does
    Oh and since then simple things like the tesco delivery driver knocking at the door has caused me to almost have a heart attack as all i saw thru the door window was a florescent jacket. Actually have to add funny side story here.. before the police came to mine they went to the wrong house and tried to arrest a poor old 60 yr disabled guy who tey thought was me luckily he kinda saw the funny side it as i went around to apologize to him as i felt terrible that had happened to him indirectly due to me.
    A i exaggerating this? again my close friends know what 'ive been going thru since this happened trust me it hasn't been pleasant .
    So whatever you think of me as a person people of the internet, again close friends know my honesty and integrity has never been questioned before.. ( heck in fact im too flipping honest and speak my mind which gets me in trouble but thats another story ) . take heed you have any dealings with "company i shall not name" and you run the risk of being wrongly accused of ill doing if you piss them off and having you pc equipment taken away great if you are oh i dunno a esport player or streamer who needs that equipment to make a living".At the very least you will probably be ripped off in whats owed to you in referrals as they have creative accounting practices.
    As for the issue that they needed to set the record straight on nope all you sheep jumping to their defense are entirely correct- of course a company who sold you a £25 router for £150 with some fancy software is telling the truth- oh wait my bad that fancy software.. well most of the amazing functions are actually on the routers default os , other stuff is basically openwrt hidden behind a fancy gui, the vpn idea was ripped off from another company btw ..
    talking of ripping off you know the why the logo of the company kept changing?
    they stole a photo off the internet of a cheetah , then tweaked it.. when this got pointed out to them instead of doing the honorable thing and fessing up they altered it some more... go on deny that one too.
    so yeah feel free to believe whoever you want i really don't give flying, accuse me of being butt hurt.. i really don't care after what they did to me at gadgetshow after all i did for them to make their router launch a success should be an indication of what sort of people they truly are.
    I mean and with respect here why wouldn't a company that sold you a £25 router for £150 using opensource software hidden behind a fancy ui be anything but honest, heck we can even overlook they stole the one thing they use as a sales gimmick to esport players and streamers from another company ..who btw sell CHEAPER ROUTERS for like $99 ...
    As for requiring proof... everything will be a matter of public record soon.. all the email exchanges, all the skype texts, all the whatsapp messages, you can make your own minds up then Past that happy to sign into any device and pull up web based emails , skype convos ect after everything has become public record
    As for those of you saying i should just move gee thanks i'd love to actually correction i did and put the whole sorry affair down to not listening to my gut , unfortunately it isn't me who needed to move on and not be petty, vindictive and make nothing into a huge @#$% needless waste of everyone's time , money and lives. So yes id love to have moved on and filed everything to the drawer marked asshats but they didn't allow me. for reasons see this paragraph.
