  1. 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...
  2. Even if things are still confidential you can give out monthly updates that contain informations like - very persistant bug has been found that gave us troubles for weeks now - new feature we cannot unveil yet is currently being tested, things are looking very good - for next month we want to refine our congestion interface and discuss new features All it requires is a 5-10 minutes meeting once a month with the netduma staff to define the boundaries of what will be shared and what not. It really isnt a huge effort but will greatly please your community. You will get much less ETA questions that way. Overall it might require 1 hour per month to pull this off, and its not really hard to keeping certain things confidential while still sharing the general development progress.
  3. Thats nice but you should still consider to upgrade your communication channels. The biggest backlash that netduma received wasnt about the over-promissing or missed release dates but about giving only 2 statements within 3 years. Everyone was completely left in the dark! I used to regularly read and post in this forum when Iain and Luke used to post here too and shared their thoughts and development progress (regardless of it they made progress or not). Nowadays i read the forum maybe once every 5-6 month as i can be certain not a single announcement on the progess has been shared since my last visit. This could easily be changed by giving out monthly update announcements... Also curious to see if we will ever get those over-promissed features like anti-spike or anti-jitter, last time we heard about those was like 2+ years ago... Iain showed lab results of +5ms spike with 100% maxed out up- and download...
  4. At least in my country most ISPs use IPv6 addresses and give out dual stack routers cause IPv4 addresses are either only for business customers or have to be "rented" for additional money. This might be different in other countries but IPv4 addresses will become more and more expensive so eventually all ISPs will cheap out on regular private customers. So im all up for a better IPv6 R1 support. @SwiftCookie Yes it isnt but netduma also has 0 interest in selling a 2020 model and getting a netgear isnt really a great option either as you then either get features delayed or the netgear staff straight up rejects them. If netduma continues to plan with the R1 then IPv6 is necessary.
  5. Id like to suggest two things 1) Give us a more advanced network monitor for the R1 where we for example can inspect what DHCP packets it receives plus the option to change those. That way we can trick spying devices such as Google Home or Alexa via changed DNS that they should send their accumulated user data to some arbitrary non-existant address rather than to the Google or Amazon server. 2) Same as above but fully automated so the user doesnt have the (obvisouly very powerfull) monitor and manipulation rights. Say you can pick from a list of existing hosts in your network one device and everything is then handled automatically for it. Yes i can use third party software and/or hardware to achieve that, but the R1 is all about having features that no other router has and a feature to block devices like Alexa without rendering them unuseable surely would be something a lot of people might be interested in.
  6. So you play with a 200€ controller that has features such as super precise analog sticks, trigger stop and paddles giving you a HUGE advantage over regular controller players yet you complain about XIM users? Guess you re one of the people who always find something to complain about unless they have ALL the advantages for themselfs. And sure go buy the XIM, youd not be the first to realize that a mouse doesnt turn you into a Shroud. Just like with a controller you have to grind for years to become good.
  7. Notification for those also reading this topic: DCHP reduced my R1 CPU load from PPPoE @ 70-90% on bandwidth load to DHCP @ 30-50% on bandwidth load Connection is currently 50 down 10 up so not even that fast. Overall a huge difference, when i switch to 100 down 40 up in the next month or two im quite confident that the R1 will deliver those speeds without any problems :).
  8. Well i just ticked the DHCP box in the R1 Network Settings and it worked without any additional adjustments required. Only thing, should i set in the fritzbox that the IPs given out by DHCP are static? Does it matter for the R1 if it gets a different IP once every now and then?
  9. The R1 doesnt show me an IP under that setting, it just looks like the following. Any other way to optain the IP or the R1?
  10. Also if that turns out to work and reduces my CPU load, could that mean i can use the hybrid VPN feature to achieve faster download speeds than 3mbit? It seems like the encryption and PPPoE eats so much CPU that the R1 just cannot offer faster speeds, maybe with PPPoE being out of the way this could result in faster speeds.
  11. Hey Netduma Team! is there a guide on how to use the DHCP feature of the R1 to connect it to a mandatory ISP router? Im currently using PPPoE but that spikes the R1 CPU to 80% when i start to download something. Since i soon want to upgrade to an even faster connection (100/40) i would like to use DHCP instead to not fry my R1 :(. So far i figured out: R1: Pick DHCP in the R1 Network Settings - WAN - Network. But do i have to specify the MTU and Mac cloning and DNS? My ISP Router (Fritzbox): Turn off WLan and connect it via ethernet to the R1. DCHP Server is automatically activated on my ISP router, so i guess i dont need to do anything in that regard. I can pick "assign always the same IP address to devices", i assume thats better right?. But how can i connect the two then or will it work automatically? Is there any interface for that in the R1? My R1 version: Firmware Version DumaOS Version 1.3.29
  12. Nice to see that its going forward, are anti jitter and anti spike still a thing? Also is my DumaOS version still up to date? The other topic got locked and i didnt get an update email, firmware says " R1" :).
  13. all right thanks, and the port forwarding and everything else that the r1 offers will still work then, right? I wasnt sure if that will also work via dhcp but from what i know dhcp messages also share other network details so it might as well work.
  14. How would i do that? Do i pick dhcp instead of pppoe in the netduma settings then? Also not sure how to configure the dhcp service of the fritzbox, what do you need to consider there? Ive ordered an IPv4 for 5€ a month from the ISP now and it works now with the, however id prefer your setup if that doesnt require me to use the IPv4 option.
  15. Hey guys, today my connection got upgraded to vdsl and therefore i received a new router from the ISP. Its a Fritzbox 7430. Now of course i want to use the R1 and the Fritzbox has the option "PPPoE Passthrough" for that which allows devices that are connected to the Fritzbox to also login via PPPoE. (I have to do this since the R1 doesnt have VoIP for DECT phones or an inbuilt vdsl modem but the Fritzbox has that) Before i get to the problem, here is the setup: Phone Socket ---> Fritzbox 7430 LAN1 ---> R1 ---> PC/Console and any other network device connected to the R1 All that the Fritzbox does is: - handle the DECT phones - Fritzbox wlan turned off - act as a modem and passes everything to the R1 - the fritzbox uses DS-lite Tunnel for IPv4 which could play a big role in the problem! Does the R1 support IPv4-ro-IPv6 translations such as DS-lite Tunnel? I only have an IPv6 Prefix listed under IPv6, for IPv4 it says DS-lite Tunnel. Now the problem is that when i use the Fritzbox PPPoE Passthrough and set my correct PPPoE login data into the R1 PPPoE field, i only get IPv6 internet connectivity but no IPv4. (open wlan connections in windows, then rightclick on netduma r1 and then status). In the Network settings of the R1 below PPPoE i havent ticked any other box (MTU, MAC cloning, DNS Override). Also the IPv6 connectivity indication in the status options will sometimes vanish too yet some internet sites still work. Example: - youtube works with the R1 - twitch doesnt work with the R1 - netduma forum works with the R1 - web.de (my email hoster) doesnt work with the R1 - any website works with the Fritzbox (when using the Fritzbox instead of the R1) Here is the R1 log if that helps, note that my R1 internal clock is screwed up and shows a wrong time: https://mega.nz/#!UUYzSAzQ!nOwxdYTQQKs6SVOnn-4LfomNwA7OURajo7pdVAv-qao
