    Could you still let us know your situation? Then we could look for a more elegant solution rather than disabling the firewall and leaving people without adequate security.

    Killhippie got a reaction from Newfie in xr700 vs xr500 Duma performance difference?   
    Bare bones features such as Bitdefender Armor (router based Antivirus) , Protected Management Frames to protect your Wi-Fi, WPA3 the latest in WI-FI security, OFDMA, TF Beamforming for older devices as well as implicit and Explicit beamforming, BSS Colouring, 1/2.5/5GB Ethernet/WAN port or link aggregation etc that's hardly stripped bare Its how routers operate without gaming software and unless you game you don't need a gaming OS. The XR500 should do you fine tbh. Its less  buggy than the XR700 at present too and has plenty of power. The XR700 I would say is simply not worth the huge price asked for it over say its original form as the the R9000. Personally I don't think DumaOS demands that kind of increase in price, especially since they have not released any meaningful updates apart from a Netgear security update really since December 2018 when Milestone 1.3 came out and we are awaiting the beta of 3.0 (sorry Netduma just saying what I see, there should have been patches for bugs in between Duma versions not a one year and 5 month gap)

    My experience in these matters tells me to heed the advice: Companies don't spend time producing things they don't have to, if they could get away only writing one version they would. That would put enough doubt in my mind to make me take the advice. Also there is enough difference in the spec to realise, no firmware can make the difference, and if the components are different, then the software that drives them will be too.
    That being said: I have seen upgrades to DVD players (Remember those!) where the cheaper version of the same model; could perform as well as the more expensive one, if the smarter firmware was installed. Though I don't think this so in this case, because It's not just a change of version, but that the model is different.

    I never knew Netduma sold XR450's they just sell the R1 as as I know. So you are saying you left the router on password and admin as default and someone somehow managed to do all this without your knowledge? Since the router is your responsibility as the owner its up to you to secure it, don't blame other people for your own mistakes. You should should secured the router properly if that's what has occured. This thread is going nowhere, maybe the mods should lock it now tbh.

    Why are you so mad if its working? Maybe don't muck around with it any more and all will be fine. Also maybe move the router higher and away from that light which kicks out RFI...

    My current router will cover over 2500sq.ft and has been up for about 50 days now, tbh are you gaming a lot? If not there is no real point in buying a gaming specific router. As mentioned if you do a factory reset don't use a config file to restore. Always set up manually. Also in internet settings make timeout is set to 0 and the mode is always on.

    You had a XR450. As BIG_DOG said you update third party firmware at your own risk, normally on most routers you will be fine but considering this router has two lots of firmware on it, the idea to try even try third party firmware was flawed from the outset. I would suggest you go to the appropriate forums and seek help there. I think tbh though you have bricked  a very expensive router and Netgear wont help you at all, as its in their T&C's to not do do exactly what you have already done. You no one else to blame but yourself.

    Nobody here had you download anything, it is something you do at your own risk and installing third party software on a device is something you do at your own risk. If you hadn't installed it in the first place you would not be in the situation you now find yourself in. I once bricked a router I had a week doing the exact same thing as I did not know the router had partitioning, but it was my fault, I did not go complaining to linksys about it as it was my own stupidity.

    Sounds like its borked. Time for a new one, and as Newfie said if you want to play with third party firmware (Netgear support OpenWRT) then grab a R7800.

    If you wanted a router with third party stuff on the R7800 would have been best and Voxels firmware and a few others that add stuff. Cracking WiFi too.

    I disagree. It is something every company "can" do. Not every company "will" do is the proper response. You guys have the resources to push support faster than a snails pace, but you choose not to. It isn't a matter of can or can't. Its a matter of choice. There are many companies that can compile hundreds of gigabytes of data a year into a program or game. How much more complex can a few megabytes in a firmware be? Is there only 1 guy doing all the work? Why? Greed? Share the wealth and grow your company by employing more staff. Find the bottleneck and fix it. You are bleeding reputation. reputation=profit.

    This is why I got rid of my XR500. I bought it the day it came out and used it for about 2-3 months and peoples are still reporting the same issues I had today so nothing has been fixed.

    Because their are QoS issues reported by people, DPI false positives, port mapping in table view in DumaOS being the opposite way round to Netgears base Firmware view (Its a Netgear router so DumaOS runs on top of Netgears firmware on the XR range) devices showing online when not and vice versa plus a hotfix not in the main firmware fork for disconnects amongst other reports of issues since milestone 1.3. So no the router is not working as intended, unless broken is the intended way and I'm pretty sure Netduma and Netgear know that's not what they want and are working to fix these bugs and maybe taking longer to make sure they get squashed properly. Also there will always security issues to fix at some point and don't forget your version of UPnP/1.0 miniupnpd  is 13 years old so bang up to date! So yep its doing well...
