    Killhippie got a reaction from crawlgsx 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)

    Killhippie got a reaction from Netduma Fraser in DOS attack reported on legitimate traffic on XR500   
    it means malformed packets were dropped, they could be spoofed but the firewall dropped them. Normally they will pass though but data packets can get corrupted and then they get dropped, the router has two layers of protection Nat which is a pain and was never mean to be security but IPv4 gives you it and a SPI firewall. IPv6 and all devices face the internet, no Nat, each has its own address. That can be a blessing and  a nightmare depending on how often your hardware is kept up to date by vendor security updates.

    Killhippie got a reaction from Netduma Alex in Denial of service attack on XR500/XR700   
    NETGEAR has released fixes for a denial of service security vulnerability on the following product models:
    R8900, running firmware versions prior to 1.0.5.2 R9000, running firmware versions prior to 1.0.5.2 XR500, running firmware versions prior to 2.3.2.56 XR700, running firmware versions prior to 1.0.1.20 NETGEAR strongly recommends that you download the latest firmware as soon as possible.

    Typical Netgear to tell people about the DoS attacks this late in the game however I would suggest downgrading firmware is now a bad idea since these attacks are in the wild and a DoS attack taking you offline would not be great.

    Yes it was , I remember talking to Jack about that. Well over a year ago, in fact only a few months after the XR500 release, so I'm surprised its a "Interesting idea" to Alex. Then again maybe not so surprised as its probably not on the devs priority list...

    Killhippie reacted to Steve in Xr700   
    I agree with you 100%. The only reason I got it was because it was on sale for black friday, so I wanted to see if it would make a difference. I was kinda shocked when I saw the scores I was getting with the 700. Just wasn't sure if it was bugged or if there was a setting I was missing on the 700 that the 500 didn't have. Wasn't aware that it had problems.

    Personally if the HG612 works well and meets your line requirements I would stick with it,plus it`s unlocked so obviously you have acees to line stats if needed.

    Killhippie reacted to Netduma Alex in Still the best router I’ve ever owned.   
    Thanks a lot!
    When I get overwhelmed with support requests, I try to remember that we have sold many many many XR500's, and the vast majority of customers never have a problem. This doesn't mean that the people who do have problems are just whining though, their criticisms are legitimate, and we're working to fix the bugs that exist.
    That said, the reviews on Amazon (for example) are very high, and people are generally impressed with DumaOS, which of course we're very happy about. Hopefully people can see the vision behind DumaOS.
    I'm also really excited about DumaOS 3.0. Every single one of those customers will be receiving a free update that vastly expands the capabilities of a product they already bought. How many times has a router more than doubled the amount of features it includes after it's already been purchased? It's gonna be awesome.
    Yeah I agree. There are users who are experiencing issues with DumaOS and I don't want to just ignore them or pretend they don't exist.

    I used to use a burndown chart when i was managing my software development team. I'd always have a deadline and and actual projected finish date based on velocity of work completed vs work remaining. This way i knew if i needed to add more resources to the team in order to make the deadline. 
    I've noticed a recurring theme with netduma, the excitement gets the better of you guys, you over promise a deadline and under deliver constantly for the last 4 years i've been using your routers.

    What makes you you think its okay to apologise for those that whine with genuine issues? Sure you like DumaOS and the router is the best in your view maybe but not everyone agrees though. It's always best to speak for yourself, not other people on mass. We all have different views, yes sing its praises that's fine, but do that for yourself as your voice is not that of all DumaOS users probably. Also to say  "Thanks for putting up with our whining" is a little patronising I find. I cant speak for anyone else of course though

    Killhippie got a reaction from Zippy in device manager not showing active devices   
    I know you would, Fraser. Things as they stand just seem to be rinse and repeat for you guys with the same problems keep rearing their ugly heads, if the Devs had patched any of this, life would be easier for you guys and the users who are somewhat frustrated depending on their level of technical knowledge and how much they push the router which is when it starts showing the bugs that have not been patched in almost a year now. Milestone 1.3 was just abandonware, I truly hope your devs change direction on patching because if not this will simply happen again and I know a few people who will move on, as you know ive taken mine down due to issues with antibufferbloat, QoS and IPv6 that cannot be fixed at this time, and it's sad when you have such a great OS. DumaOS is like Swiss Gruyère, looks lovely  tastes good on the first bite but is full of holes...

    Killhippie got a reaction from Zippy in High Priority Traffic possible bug with Indicator light?   
    Wait for 3.0 (I imagine it will be in the new year but who knows, you wont get a fix now, and 3.0 is still in development from what we are told) also bear in mind the R1 will get it before the XR500, as Netgear have to test its compatibility with their firmware and hardware, so nobody even knows if the XR500 will get 3.0 for sure, and if they did they cant say (NDA). There are more secrets here than at the NSA headquarters it seems...

    The likelyhood of that happening is minimal especially if there aren't many ports open to the internet but I get what you're saying and I understand that. I can only report what is happening, if I was a developer/responisble for releasing upgrades then I'd jump on it myself but I'm not sadly.

    If its a  Netgear bug yes, from what has been said if its a Netduma's issue, then no. They are working on DumaOS 3.0 which has been prioritised over bug patching in Milestone 1.3. There is no ETA on 3.0 at this time.

    Killhippie got a reaction from azza10 in Xr500 firmware updates   
    The XR500 is a little over 3 months and not one update for current issues, and no updates from Netduma for issues with table view inconsistencies with port mapping compared with NTGR port mapping. Even if it is only visual it should be fixed.

     Also still no UPnP tables showing on my router (had three from a beta unit to present unit that has the port numbering the right way around on the back) and only one firmware ever showed UPnP info, but then again I use a mac and Firefox and it seems if you don't use Windows and Chrome that's always the issue. So many times I see "try another browser like Chrome" as a fix. A router should work with all the major browsers not be developed to work with just Chrome, I have issues with Chrome and Flash so neither are used on my device, and I use Duckduckgo as my search provider I try to avoid Google as much as possible, so Firefox should work just fine, and so should Safari and Opera, as well as the mobile Safari browser. Saying that logging in via even any tablet can be a mess.

     These are things that need to be fixed before adding more features, unless you just plan to fix bugs and regressions in Milestone 1.4 which tbh does not make me fill me with confidence. Right now some of Milestone 1.3 quirks should have been ironed out as well as bug fixes from NTGR. Also can't you get NTGR to update its GPL source code, things like OpenSSL and miniupnd which is still over a decade old and patched in binary but not actually replaced properly, or maybe you should let a third party developer in to add to your firmware so NTGR have to update this stuff. Voxel who produces a NTGR firmware fork for the R9000 and R7800 can kick new versions with updated packages and bug fixes in week or two while having a full time job. So why Does NTGR never update any of this code, and why don't you push them to do that? I had high hopes that Netduma would get NTGR to update this stuff, but the XR500 is still running the OpenSSL version1.0.2n released in Dec 2017, and its not like there hasn't been any CVE's for OpenSSL or newer versions to patch these security holes since December 2017 either.

    Killhippie got a reaction from Netduma Fraser in https prob   
    Your router is secured by a password, a complicated one I hope using the latest firmware, its not a "site" You are loging into a device, not Amazon. Although HTTPS would be better its does no harm as that side of things is not internet facing unless you have remote management on. Still use a complicated password and don't loose it and you will be fine.
