    Killhippie got a reaction from Bert in ANNOUNCEMENT: The Netduma R2 is here   
    I think I thought he was suggesting the R1 would be a good home router, Bert. My apologies if I misread the post.

    Other routers with the same spec CPU (Dual Core two threads) when using cake of fq_codel only hit about 330mbps. The CPU just does have the compute power with an automated QoS and when they add that with all the 'rapps' it probably will slow it down, other OpenWRT routers with that spec have issues over that kind of speed too. This router is the same chipset as the R2 with 128mb more ram using fq_codel. https://www.stoplagging.com/stoplagging-routers/

    Yeah you are right but he said he doesn't use wifi, it was specific to his use case 
     
    Same for me, my connection is split into 2 VLAN's from my ISP, one for home use and one for gaming. I use wifi only on the first one, the gaming one has it turned off so the R1 is sufficient there. 
     
    The only issue is CPU power if you want to run QoS, you're kind of limited to 300mbit on a R1.
     
    For a home router for a family the R1 is long outdated. Even before the XR series came out it wasn't sufficient, I was using it with a 5Ghz AP.

    What about 4k/8K streaming over 5Ghz? Not everything is about gaming and if its the homes only router the R1 comes up short on the Wi-Fi side as it does not have 5Ghz. Also it has a weak CPU for compute power. Your set up only has a few devices most homes have many more with large families.

    Same, now I find out I bought an XR500 for nothing since the R2 will probably run Dumaos 3.0 better.

    I haven't gotten the XR500 version yet either. But it's up to Netgear, they run the XR beta. So there is no point in complaining here.
     
    I will tell you though, from testing the R1 with DumaOS, when it comes to actual gameplay it hasn't changed anything for me. It's just the featureset that is nicer. 
     
    In case of the XR500 I hope it fixes a number of things like the VLAN QoS bug. But really since I already have a fix for it I don't expect much from that either.

    On a serious note. This is my first "gaming" router so I cannot compare it with anything else. What I can say is that IMHO it's a neat little box of tricks and reasonably priced. The tech is a little old but what Netduma have manged to do especially with the latest beta is pretty solid considering testers are still on debug software. I'm looking forward to the release firmware and also regular updates thereafter and I am excited, not only for Netduma but also DumaOS fans.

    Killhippie reacted to Maruf in Where is my duma os 3 on xr500   
    Probably the most jarring realization is this seems to have been happening as early as June of last year and, at least for me, hit out of nowhere. I was able to enjoy my router's freedom to tinker and extended 5 GHz range in my home for just a little over a month. Now? Somehow setting a static IP dropped my speeds to 1/10th of my paid-for speeds (1/8th of actual output) both down and up, intermittent dropouts, and awful gaming sessions.
    For example, on the XR500, it takes 4+ attempts to connect to friends in Borderlands 3, and sometimes only by restarting the game and accepting a Steam invite directly, or having to use the Discord integrated invites. On my Verizon gateway, I can join in-game - consistently.
    For Destiny 2, the past couple of days, before my character selection screen even came up, I got hit with "ATTENTION: Contacting Destiny 2 servers" - this would continue on for the next 5 minutes straight until I'd get kicked back with some sort of infamous Bungie animal error code. One dropout was particularly bad enough to send me back to the main menu, then while in the main menu, get hit with another network error. Also no longer a problem back on the gateway.
    Like I said, I really want to enjoy and just even USE my XR500 but I guess I should've paid closer attention to the negative reviews?

    I really can see a multinational company like Netgear wanting loads of ranting users being beta testers. Most of the people here just want 3.0, they are not to here to  fix the bugs although some will of course will want to help. A proper beta test is not a free for all.

    I would guess the deal they had with netgear is the reason that they had the money to venture out and were able to do their own.

    Netduma are adding people to the R1 beta regularly, the XR500 beta is handled by Netgear so it’s just a case of being patient and waiting for an invite.

    No, you should post only on the Netgear beta forum as Newfie has said, if you didn't get the firmware from a legitimate source, then you are on your own and I would scan your pc for malware

    Killhippie got a reaction from Netduma Fraser in Hotfix for remote code execution attack on XR300   
    This Hotfix for the XR300 is really worth installing as soon as you can. Maybe @Netduma Fraser of @Netduma Alex can add it to the firmware section due to its importance.

    "Since authentication is not required to reach this bug, anyone would be capable of exploiting this vulnerability. Since it’s remote code execution, you can completely take over the router, the attacker would be able to possibly upload a custom backdoor software and establish persistence or launch further attacks, like man-in-the-middle attacks."

    Also if you look up the model of the Fios modem/router that you have then you should find the user guide which will tell you where the options are located in the interface.

    Settings should have bridge mode in them or you On your XR700, go to the System Information page and make a note of the WAN IP then on the modem/router upstream, set the XR700's IP as static/reserved so that it won't change on the modem/router upstream, put the WAN IP from the first step into the DMZ, so that the XR700 bypasses the firewall.
