    crawlgsx got a reaction from shaolin95 in XR500 Firmware version 2.3.2.56 released.   
    This is the nail in the coffin for me. I have complained many times about how Netgear has pumped out other routers (with Netduma) without ever updating the XR500 but now even Netduma will release a new router WITH the new software before we have even seen an update. I agree 100% with your sentiments.

    Don't worry folks NetDuma 3.0 will be in a new router releasing in two weeks.  Honestly NetDuma and Netgear can both go screw themselves .  Absolutely zero integrity here.  They promise the moon deliver nothing.

    I hear you, this is very likely my last netgear router no matter what. And lets not forget my Arlo cameras..another product support disaster with bugs that never get fixed and support only has one reply to every issue, disconnect the cameras to power drain like we have acccess to them in all our setups so easily!

    Im trying to hold off as well,  but now with Wifi 6 becoming more mainstream I think its time to be done with the XR500 and more importantly be done with Netgear. I haven't seen a router this poorly maintained since the Amped Wireless release. I'm 99% going back to Asus at this point.

    It's Netduma that have not updated the XR500 with DumaOS patches, not Netgear. Netduma hold the licence for their product, Netgear cant magically patch it for them. The reason you have not seen a Duma update since December 2018 when Milestone 1.3 came out is because they didn't patch their product which is still beyond my comnprehension, I have never seen a comany create a OS then not offer patches for the problems that plagued Milestone 1.3 Also they decided to in the middle of doing milestones to change direction and re-write the OS and along came DumaOS 3.0, so why are you blaming Netgear?  Its a Netduma's code that needed patching, Netgear sat waiting for code to do something with I imagine After all the hardware in the XR500 is only a R7800 with a bit more Flash NAND the hardware is 5 years (Soc IPQ 8065) even though the PCB's are new, so it should all be pretty stable by now as far as drivers etc.

    Hello 6 months passed.
    I'm on .56

    You told me there that there should have been (under the new release in a short time )
    something to fix the dashboard issues.

    I checked today, nothing?

    My son want a router to manage his home... and I dont know what to tell him 😞
    I had so many expectation from Duma OS... two years long waiting... and no light so far.

    This is equivalent to saying that all the different companies that put their name on laptops, desktops, tablets, and so on are responsible for the windows, linux, android or ios software updates that causes that computer to run like a snail or crash repeatedly. 
    It's no different than that of an operating system on these routers.

    So for anyone wanting information on FW updates and support for updates should be posting over in the NEGEAR forums:
    https://community.netgear.com/t5/Nighthawk-Pro-Gaming-Routers/bd-p/en-home-nighthawk-pro-gaming-routers
    Stop bugging NetDUMA about FW updates. XR routers are NETGEAR products, not NetDUMA. NETGEAR only uses NetDUMA as a 3rd party developer for this series of routers and uses a portion of DUMAs code to include in NETGEARs FW. If you want information about the XR series FW, post over in the NETGEAR forum. Up to NETGEAR to update there FW and test it out and release it. It's NETGEARs routers and ball game when it comes to there products. 
    And don't forget, since this CD19 virus has slowed and delayed current events and business progress, the end results and release times maybe delayed as well. Many people and businesses are being effected. 
    For those interested, there maybe a beta version for some XR series which you'll need to contact the NETGEAR forum moderator there to gain access too. So far I've only see a beta for the XR700. Something to inquire about and see if maybe there is one for the XR450/500 series if your so inclined to do so. 
    Any router mfr doesn't have to or is required to divulge when new FW maybe forth coming. Been like this for many years. 
    EOL!!!

    crawlgsx got a reaction from Netduma Alex in What are the pros and cons of putting my console in DMZ?   
    I would not put your console in DMZ, it is not necessary. For any flaws the XR Routers have - NAT is not one of them. If you only have one console, you don't need to do anything to have open ports. It will NAT just fine on its own. If you have two of the same console (Xbox One especially) change from Secure to OPEN NAT and call it a day. This is a majority of the reason I purchased this Router as many modern routers these days can not achieve Full Cone NAT so if you have 2 Xbox One's on the same network it is a giant mess. The XR series are some of the few routers available that will do this without custom firmware.

    I have never seen a place that takes forever to get updates coming out nobody likes it when updates take forever to come out all because they want it to come out in all one big update nobody likes that it's unfair and untrustworthy because the more updates that come out the more things are going to get broken I'd rather them updated every few weeks instead of every other year

    I'm sorry, but I've never seen such a lack of competence with firmware updates. Other companies release firmware updates on frequent bases, but the response that we hear over and over and over at Netduma is "Were have a lot of features in the pipeline, but we don't know when Netgear will release them". Literally half a year will go by with the same nonsense. You guys really need to revise your business model. Releasing firmware updates every 2 years? Seriously?

    crawlgsx got a reaction from George in Were these routers given up on?   
    Even those as skeptical as myself don't believe that it is truly "given up on". It is however well beyond slow progress. For such an expensive Niche market I would've expected more regular updates and upgrades. I am sure DumaOS 3.0 will likely come to our devices - EVENTUALLY. That is the biggest question, and one that NetDuma can not answer due to Netgear. (nor would they want to give a timeline at this point anyway)
    All we can go on is what they have said combined with what has happened in the past. Based on that info, I would guess we don't see this update until Q3 2020 at best. (with the R1 seeing it well before hand). But again, this is just MY opinion.

    i would like to request a Automated Scheduled Reboot Feature added to the firmware capabilities for the Netgear XR500 Router. this feature is present on every other commercial router.
    Reason: the Router Performance sometimes Degrades over time or will not put through internet data.
    After Reboot the performance is top again or the internet data will be put through again.

    crawlgsx reacted to Killhippie in Fix for "DumaOS not loaded yet!" (XR500 users only)   
    I find it really disturbing you have control over the theme of a router and it does this much damage and people cannot block that update, feels wrong. Surely its their hardware and their choice. This API Im assuming (I may be wrong) you used should ask people if they want to update via the interface, like with the GUI language ones although they are rare. All of this  makes wonder ultimately about the the routers security from bad actors. I guess you have hardware access written into in the EULA that nobody reads.Did this happen even if people have auto firmware update turned off? (most sensible setting to change so as not to get your router bricked)

    I know for a fact that Netgear haven't given up on this router because we're still in frequent talks with the team who supports the XR500. Unfortunately I can't say when, but there are big updates on the way, I guarantee.
    In the end, as you say, actions will speak louder than words, and i'm sure you'll be very impressed with the new updates we're working on.

    Are they really? I feel like we have heard that story for a LOOONG time now. I feel pretty convinced Netgear has moved on from this router and all we are getting at this point is smoke and mirrors. Netduma may be still invested, but what good is a new OS if we can't fix actual problems?
