    Sir you are wrong to say "people need to relax because they received what they paid for when it came to the Netduma R1 Gaming Router."
    They have been advertising the R1 router that includes a free DumaOS update for quite some time .If you included the Free item as part of your advertising of said product, you must deliver. Its that simple. Here is a perfect example. Video cards come with free games every once in a while. Would they be able to get away with not giving you the "free game" as promised ?  I don't think so.
     
    Why this is overlooked by people who post otherwise baffles me.
     
    Let be accurate, The most recent announcement is another misleading part to the history of the Netduma R1. Its deceiving the way this company back tracks on these things , multiple times I might add and  its been happening for quite some time.
     
    I don't believe the backwards compatibility aspect of the statement at this point. I have had firmware updates in the past from other devices that couldn't revert back to the previous firmware. All they did was state up front that the upgrade is not reversible. So this IMO is BS.

    I wouldn't call it an assumption, Id call it an educated guess. The hardware isn't worthy of what DumaOS claims to be. I dont know what lines your talking about , its seems this is an issue.
     
    Being easy is not a prerequisite for being up front with your customers. You cant promise things , even free things , or continually miss deadlines without people getting angry. Why? Your going to piss off your clientele and they wont have nice things to say about you or to you .
    Sure,  they could block the topic. They could censor everything they can out there; but how would that look ? You do that if you don't want something revealed.
     
    Lets not forget that the topic was created by the CEO who was announcing a delay in releasing an update, right at the deadline, for something as mundane as being able to flash back old firmware (hardly valid and not a legal obstacle btw),and  which was only going to be a few weeks.
     
    Oh btw, it was only 22 pages before the topic became a month old. The thread size is a product of there own doing.

    I have not got an R1 but why would I buy an R1? You post makes no sense. R1 owners who are happy with the unit would want the update, new buyers would not buy the R1 probably based on hardware alone. After all who in 2018 is going to buy a router with a 600Mhz CPU and 128MB of ram, that has b/g/n only when 802.11ac is the norm now. The Netgear R7000 was released in 2014 with a 1Ghz Dual core CPU and 256MB ram and 128MB flash and 3x3:3 MIMO along with 802.11ac. Those specs are what people are looking for and the R7000 is still going strong even now, and able to to push 4K HDR/Dolby vision around around their homes wirelessly let alone the myriad of other devices that they own which also now need faster CPU's and greater bandwidth at faster speeds. Also it wont be long before 802.11ax is hitting the shelves, also WPA3 is coming and the new routers should get this with a firmware update it now seems, I wonder if the the R1 is capable of that upgrade? Yes I know Ethernet is still the best way to hook things up, but my 4K OLED AF8 can watch Netflix in 4K HDR over wifi with no buffering and I can still browse on my iPad or take a facetime call etc. I think the R1 would really struggle.
     
     I highly doubt they are trying to push the XR500, because if people look at the hardware specs for a modern LAN the R1 makes no sense. I would imagine if the R1 was made by a Asus/TP-Link/Netgear etc would it be EOL by now, as its not really powerful enough. Gamers also do a whole bunch of other stuff and using the R1 then buying an expensive router to put into AP mode does not make financial sense to many people these days. This is why I think the Netgear conspiracy is flawed. You can all go round in circles forever trying to guess about the last minute pull of DumaOS and I would agree the timing was not great in all honesty, but I think its just about hardware really nothing more. The R1 was released in 2014/2015 depending on country with under powered specs even then, the R7000 was also released at the same time with much better specs (1Ghz Dual core CPU and 256MB ram and 128MB flash and 3x3:3 MIMO along with 802.11ac) as I wrote above. So the R1 was tired at launch really, but the software made it so very special.
     
     At the end of the day the R1 is getting old and underpowered, so new buyers would not buy the R1. I imagine, if the XR500 did not exist an Asus AC5300 or Netgear R7800 would do for most as it handles other network needs easily as well as gaming for the majority. Looking on Amazon UK right now the R1 is not even available anymore and they are not sure when they will get stock again. It may be as simple as its just does not have the grunt or the Wi-Fi specs people would be looking for now.
     
    So your argument "I can say It really is clear as to why this team haven't updated the R1 as if they did there is no real reason to buy the XR500 at all" I think is flawed, because the majority of new users including myself would not buy a 600Mhz 128mb ram b/g/n router no matter what software was on it in 2018. That's just my take.

    I play mostly PC game like Overwatch. The geo filter doesn't really apply for that as far as I know.
    You can find the XR500 for less than the advertised price of US$299. I received mine for about 25% less than that.
     
    Not sure if i can mention the site of the deal that had it listed.

    I never said the router didn't have issues, I disagreed with you that it was trash, which it clearly is not. As for airing your views, you are welcome to and if I did not want yours aired they would have been deleted, so you are wrong again on that part also. As for the geo filter it is partly dependant on the game being played. I have never been disconnected from a game but I can also sympathise with those it happens to.

    If you want results, you need to demand it (you know who you are, original R1 owners). If your on YouTube or social media, you need to voice your concerns and frustration. I’ve waited long enough and hate to be pushed to the side just because you decided to release it on a newer hardware. You should of took care of your loyal customers. Now I’m not apologizing I’m very disappointed in the lack of transparency.

    Promised 'brief weeks' delay resulting in actual months raises questions Netduma needs to address and at least not fool new potential customers, who will buy R1 hoping to get DumaOS on it. Netduma's Project Management team should absolutely have a development schedule for DumaOS for R1 and it's a shame they don't share it with us, their customers. 
     
    Is the development of DumaOS completely cancelled for R1? If not, then give us the schedule.
     
    Does partnership with Netgear block the deployment of DumaOS to R1? If so, find a way to evade it - give us an open beta, leak it to github, whatsoever.
     
    Concerned that DumaOS will be pirated and ported to a regular 50US Mikrotik? You should have foreseen this and your customers should not pay your shot.

    It doesn't work for me properly as well. Please stop pretending that all these things are always user configuration faults. They aren't. VPN doesn't work for me properly for over a half year after several changes on PIA side.
     
    Same for titofuenla, it's not that we are too dumb to configure our router. It's just that not all features are supported with high bandwidth lines. And with the advertisement wording of "unlock the full potential of the R1 for the first time with DumaOS" maybe some are hoping that this limitation might not exist in DumaOS but I personally don't hold my breath to be true.

    You didnt read my post correctly . It does not handle speeds above 200 with congestive control on, at the desired percentage rate above 200Mbps. When I was running 200 Mbps at 90% it would run at 180 Mbps. When I upgraded to 300 speed it wouldn't run above 200 with the same 90% configuration. Hense the "speed cap" on CC. Im pretty sure thats due to the hardware limitations on the R1. Your 500Mbps speed is set on the R1 with out CC enabled and with Turbo+Super Turbo on as well. Im very familiar with the R1 and routers in general , TYVM.
     
    I addressed this topic in another thread that i started and Netduma didnt really come up with a solution although I heard some suggestion to put another router in front of it , and was told that the 30% was a standard drop even at 99%. Others have had the same issue as well.
     
    You can look up my thread if you dont believe me. Its one of the first things I ever posted in this forum.

    Thanks for validating my feelings but I must conclude your decision to buy an xr500 was based on need and not so much objectivity , as I see it. By giving up on the R1 and buying an xr500,  you have become dismissive if anything,  concerning the  evaluation of the merits Netduma , as far as being truthful about what they say vs what they actually do. Thats the crux of the matter IMO.

    "there weren't many biscuits, but we saved you a few" "
     
    So with all respect, as asking as an owner of both an R1 as well as the 500 with the dumaos on it... At 7+ weeks now, even if it is a year off from now can we as a community please have an accurate time table to the release of the R1 update? I use both in my home, enjoy the profile feature on the R1 that the 500 is lacking, and in all honesty even though the R1 has hardware not even close to the 500 it honestly does a better job hands down on congestion control and bufferbloat handling. I would like to have the update as even with the newer router if I want to play lag free or close to it games in Fortnite, WW2, destiny, Halo, as well as others I am having to still run my R1 for just the 3 Xbox ones in my home. The update would at least help to take the bad taste out if my mouth for buying the 500 and still needing to use the R1 as I get a "B" sometimes a "C" when using the dumaos and an A+ when using the R1. I have true gigabit up and down fiber connection and legit at my lowest speed tests am around 950 up and down. I dumb this way down to about 30 up and down for my gaming on R1 which gives me an A+. To do this with the DumaOS this means everything 8n my house pretty much has to be there as even setting individually to the same level of speeds on the new router I only get a "B" at best. Don't know why such a difference as I have followed every faq and guide you have up so I have resigned to just go the 2 Duma points and realize it is what it is. With that in mind, I have paid good money for both devices and believe that if given a promise from the company that has not been met, and a timetable that has not been met then at the very least an update on when the update will be available is not just expected but required from your company. I am not trying to bash the company, I have been happy with the R1 for about 14 months and it has made a HUGE difference in not only my gaming experience but also my score. For that I am extremely grateful... But that does not excuse the lack of communication on broken timelines promised from you to us as a community. To put 8t in every day terms and perspective if you were a contractor and failed to deliver in the timeline you would update your clients... If you push back the time frame by "a few weeks at most" then you communicated that and would continue your contract. But 7 weeks after that push back and still no word... In my world, you would be fired, and probably sued for breach of contract... But in your world you fear no repercussions... I understand that, but feel as though as a company, you should show a level of integrity, responsibility to deliver as promised or communicate otherwise, and to have some level of ethical conduct when trying to win the trust of the gaming community... Which is what every member that had posted here is a member of... The very same gaming community that gave you as an up and coming small company a chance and have continued to try and support you even through the broken promises and timelines. How could any of us tell our friends, family, our community if fellow gamers to trust in your software if we don't feel we can trust in your company? Just a little food for thought and once again coming from an avid supporter of your company and software but still sorely disappointed in your ethical misconduct on promises you have made to all of us. Please provide a realistic timetable we can hold you to and advise us of any changes to the given timetable as they occur instead of just deciding to treat us like mushrooms... Kept in the dark and only fed...... Well you know the rest to that one I am sure. We will all be awaiting a timely response to the same question that has been asked numerous times from a representative of your company and even if the truth hurts we still expect you to give us the truth. Please advise.
