  1. Are these issues planned to be fixed in 3.0? So many months after these issues have been reported and we still haven't a clear answer from you... Did you replicate these issues? Is a fix being included in 3.0?
  2. Well the high priority traffic detection is completely broken on XR300. If you search the forum you ll see many people face similar issues. For me, sometimes it doesn't properly activate, other times it goes on and off randomly or even when I shut down the console the high priority traffic indicator continues to be on... This feature is beyond broken in XR300 so before I remove the router from my setup I had it permanently sett to off...
  3. Same here. I have removed it from my setup. This is completely ridiculous
  4. This did't age very well. "So close" but we are mid-April and still no news about any of the show stopper issues that have been reported for months. Shame on you guys...
  5. Exactly. The only take it or leave it offer I had form the point of purchase was to get a different XR300, which I did and guess what? The very same firmware issues were still there. They offered to give me a third one to try but it clearly does not make any sense. What would make sense is a refund but they denied this twice already.
  6. I feel the exact same way. The XR300 that I got a couple of months back is a complete joke. None of the main features actually works properly and now I am stuck with a worthless £175 paperweight. It is clear that the DumaOS team doesn’t care, so I opened a ticket with netgear. They agreed that the router is not performing as it should but unfortunately as netgear does not have a representation in my country, I have to take this up with the seller. The lemon laws in my country don’t take into consideration horrible software, so I am now stuck with a worthless XR300 since the seller denied me the refund I requested. If you ask me, what the netgear/Netduma are doing with these routers is borderline fraud and I am seriously thinking to open up a case reporting a defective product to the European Commission. Not sure if it will work but I m thinking it worths a try, as these guys are blatantly ripping off people and they seem to be getting away with it.
  7. Hi Fraser, By disabling the IPv6 in the settings you mean the following setting in the XR300 right?
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. 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...
  11. 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
  12. 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.
