  1. Hi Fraser, By disabling the IPv6 in the settings you mean the following setting in the XR300 right?
  2. Hi Fraser, I spent a little bit more time testing this and my conclusion is that the network monitoring charts are completely broken. The problem is not only affecting downloading from game consoles but all devices in the network. For example, right after a router reboot, the charts only display 15-20% of the real download traffic that my MacBook Pro generates when downloading a single torrent. The network monitoring charts need a hotfix ASAP, right now they are completely useless.
  3. That would be nice. Fingers crossed that we will soon have such a release. At least from my experience right now with the XR300, the latest firmware is in an alpha or beta state at best. Absolutely unacceptable, so let’s hope a bug fix release will be out soon.
  4. Same here, the XR300 is the very first router I had to move on from due to unpatched firmware issues... Tried to return it but the lemon law in my country doesn’t actually cover products with bad or defective firmware/software. I also raised a ticket with Netgear, they acknowledged all the issues, saying that can’t do anything about it and that I m supposed to figure everything out with the seller of the router... Great stuff! So I guess my only hope now is that somehow DumaOS 3.0 will be in a better shape than the latest XR300 firmware. However from my experience in the software industry, new features usually come together with new issues and since the Netduma team is so unwilling to slow down and do some housekeeping, I am not sure we will ever get a usable DumaOS release... Right now I am stuck with a £175 paperweight as the XR300 firmware is far from being considered stable enough to be used as my daily driver at my home setup...
  5. Look, as a software developer myself with 15+ years of experience in the field I completely get that. However its not about the underlying architectural complexity nor the potential delays due to cross-team approvals. As Alex pointed out most resources are focused on DumaOS 3.0 and not on a bug fixing. Cant be more clear than that... The Netduma team has prioritised the next version of DumaOS over patching holes in the problematic firmware of the XR series of routers: I great news for the XR500, however as an XR300 owner not sure if this is going to be of any help
  6. I had the exact same experience with my PS4, however I am using the XR300. It seems to be a bug affecting both routers and to be frank its really annoying as it deems the monitor capabilities of the router completely useless... I already raised the issue along with some other defects that are plaguing the XR300 firmware, however as the devs are spread thin with the DumaOS 3.0 development I don't foresee we ll have a hot fix anytime soon.
  7. I get that. What I am saying is that could you perhaps use your internal connections and find out if there is a plan for a software release any time soon?
  8. Ok so shall I do? open a ticket with Netgear for this one? Or can you please forward this question to them?
  9. XR300 High priority traffic detection seems to be completely broken on Consoles. Not sure about your case but perhaps its related? Here's the issue I have raised in case it helps
  10. So is there any estimate on when DumaOS 3.0 is getting out for XR300?
  11. Agreed, both my ISP default router and my old Apple Time Capsule work way way better. They remain stable and reliable for weeks without a single restart. However the QoS settings especially in conjunction with the game traffic auto-detection along with the advanced monitoring that DumaOS facilitates are two features I don’t have in my current setup. But guess what? In my XR300 both of these huge DumaOS selling points are completely broken. High priority traffic auto detect works Properly half of the times at best. Monitoring is broken too. As if the full of “nil” values interface wasn’t bad enough, when sometimes download traffic is not showing for some devices this makes the whole existence of advanced monitoring facilities completely useless.
