    Yeah sure, I wish updates would be more regular.   But I also think some of the rage criticism the NetDuma team receives is a bit unfair.  The reality is my router works very well.  It’s been running consistently since I bought it about a year and a half ago.

    For anyone updating to this firmware don't forget to back up your current configuration just incase you run into issues
    you will find the back up config option under Settings - Administration - Backup Settings.
     
    Although I still have to update my firmware looking at these patch notes im very disheartened
    A lot of us where hoping for firmware milestone 1.4 or at least some major fixes for the issues we are all having
    The last real firmware update was around December the 13th last year is this really what weve been waiting this long for??

    The XR500 is a very unique router. While I also agree its taking along time that is just the nature of the beast. You have DumaOS that has to be stable and then you have to have Netgears firmware to be stable. Then those two have to play nice together. Which can and does take time. More time then what your average firmware on basic type routers. That's just one example and reason. Now the more features a router has the more chances for things to go wrong. This really is a very complicated router tbh. The more testing done now the better.  And if issues arise while testing a firmware as complicated as this im sure it will be delayed or take even more time to get things worked out. Which im sure will further delay any new firmware release.
     I have been very critical and harsh towards Netduma and this XR500. But if I wasn't they might feel left out and not loved! At the end of the day no matter the outcome of this XR500 I will still love the guys at Netduma for what they are and stand for. Life is to short these days to do anything less then that. No one has worked so hard and tried to give us features like Netduma has for us gamers alike all around the globe.. That in itself deserves credit where credit is do! At any point when or if Netduma decides to create another router of there own whether it be a R2 or whatever. I will be that guy standing in line to get one!

    I agree. I started this post. It's nothing but drama. At least it got a hotfix for the xr500 and a beta for the xr700. But in the end it's just a lot of crying and needs to be deleted entirely! Thank you.

    Killhippie speak the word brother!! I totally agree with you! We cant go from milestone to milestone with no patches along the way. And going these lengths between milestones this type of model will not survive. I have no idea where this is even thought of as a possible method. Honestly I have no idea who thought this would be just fine. But I can tell you one thing.. People that are the consumers wont forget this.. Ive watched closely in this forum how some have bought this XR500 and returned it rather quickly because of odd issues.  I cant blame them a bit! I hung onto mine thinking any day now we will get some patches.. If someone would have told me it would be months on end I would have said they were crazy.. Well looks like the joke is on me! 
     At this stage of the game I don't care if Netgear is in charge of these so called fixes or firmware updates.. And im sure we the consumer don't care either but just want some support that doesn't get strung out months on end telling us nothing and even worse fixing nothing..  Netduma has to realize there name is on this product as well. They also need to man up and say hey Netgear we need to get this corrected and have some direction here.. I don't see this from Netduma at all.. They seem to be laying down and just winging it! I cant believe I have to even write this so we can get some support.. Basic business fundamentals is completely missing here.. 
    Zippy..

    Sunaikinti got a reaction from Netduma Alex in Device Manager very confused with switched devices   
    The dhcp lease changes every second is definitely a bug. I believe it is also why the device manager lists online devices as offline too. The .32 firmware didn't do this.

    You have in my opinion one of the most quirky models for patching and updating firmware I've seen to be honest. Your team dropped milestone 1.3 in December last year (18th I think) and have not patched one bug so far, and keep telling us big things are coming well after a while people just give up, and you have seen this before as it sounds a lot like the R1 situation with "DumaOS is coming" all over again. I really thought Netduma would have realised this isn't the way to communicate, or patch firmware. Of course this is just my point of view but maybe you guys are spreading yourselves to thin with new projects to spend time patching old ones?  I don't care about what's coming, I care about what I'm using now tbh. Anything new in the works after bug fixes, well its all gravy.

     As I see it you really shouldn't patch by upgrading OS levels, rather like if Apple for instance released iOS 12 and then no bug fixes for a year and then patched iOS 12 by releasing iOS 13! There are always security issues and bugs, hell you wont even push Netgear to patch all that out of date code. (looking at you OpenSSL and miniupnd amongst many others) You should be patching bugs in between milestones, and that's as much to do with you and your Devs decisions on where to put the resources as it is Netgears, I'm sure.

    Can you guys at least tell us there will be a major update before 2020? If you can’t, then I’m starting to think everyone on this forum got conned out of their hard earned pay.
    I just don’t understand how it’s legal to charge someone 300 dollars for a router that doesn’t function properly. Let alone doesn’t function properly 2 years after release. We didn’t buy the router at a used router dealership nor did we agree to spend 300 dollars on a beta test program. We were all led to believe we would be spending our money on a finished product.
    Here’s an analogy. If I went and bought a brand new car of the lot with a proprietary auto drive function and was told that it also comes standard with leather interior, a/c, and a CD player yet the car i received had none of those standard features and the heavily advertised auto drive feature intermittently stopped functioning leading to numerous accidents and the only support I received was some people telling me to politely piss off and gave me no time frame on when the issues would be resolved if resolved at all, you better believe someone’s ass is getting sued.

    Sunaikinti reacted to Netduma Alex in Way slower speeds on router than directly connected to modem   
    Well the QoS uses some processing power so that could explain a small amount of speed loss. Anti-bufferbloat would account for the most speed loss as the intention of this feature is to reduce speed to prevent packet loss.
    Bandwidth allocation shouldn't affect speed unless the priority device is active. If you have Share Excess disabled, the speed will be harshly affected by this, so it's recommended to keep Share Excess turned on unless you know exactly how much bandwidth you want to give to each device.
    I would personally turn QoS on, reset both download and upload distribution, enable share excess for both download and upload, turn bufferbloat to 100 and press Never, disable any prioritization rules, THEN with your current device as the only one connected, do a speedtest, and put this in as the maximum bandwidth setting.

    Sunaikinti reacted to ToastyJ in Way slower speeds on router than directly connected to modem   
    Yes I did do that. However, see below.
    I called to activate the new modem, but I guess they didn't provision it. I just called again and they did the provisioning and now my speeds have jumped up I'm averaging in the 300-400 range when I disable QoS. It goes down when I enable it, but I assume that's by design. Tested direct connect to the modem and was getting in the mid 400s so there is a lot less disparity now. So now I just have to make sure comcast provides me what I'm paying for, wish me luck there

    Thanks for the help everyone. I'll be sure to hang out on the forums some and post again if things go awry.

    Resetting the modem will pull a new Mac from the router. I had to do this when I got the xr500.

    No problem. I have the same modem. It has a small reset hole in the back.
