    Thanks Luke for the announcement of the new milestone and for setting up the DumaOS insiders which I think will be a winner for everyone.

    The Future of DumaOS: Version 3.0
    Last year we released our first major update for DumaOS, Milestone 1.3. You guys loved it, so we quickly got to work on the next milestone, packing it full of features to make your router even more powerful.
    This next milestone will instead be a new version, DumaOS 3.0, and it marks the biggest leap forward in our history. It will contain a huge amount of features never seen before on a router. Instead of just sending out each of the features piece by piece, we needed to wrap them all up into one giant release. We will explain why soon 😉 (but don't worry, we're not doing an EA!).
    We know you guys will want to get your hands on 3.0 as soon as possible and we are working very hard to make this happen. But until we are sure, the release date is ‘to be confirmed’. But in the meantime, here is a teaser one of the many features coming to your router in 3.0: Data History.

    With Data History you can see how much bandwidth you’ve used over time and drill-down to see which devices and/or applications are eating up all your data or find out how many hours you spent gaming over the weekend. If you are under a data cap, you can also see if you are nearing your monthly limit.
    This is just a small glimpse into 3.0. We will be gradually revealing more features over the next few weeks so keep an eye out for more announcements.
    One final thing, we launched DumaOS Insiders yesterday. This will be a private subforum where we share first-looks at features we are currently working on and using your feedback to shape them. There are only a few spaces left, so sign up here if you haven’t already: https://forum.netduma.com/topic/29480-sign-up-to-dumaos-insiders/
    Big things are coming.
    Thank you for your support.
    The ND Team

    The big announcement will be public. There will be smaller announcements and "concepts" that are shared with insiders. We won't share anything with the public which we might change later, but for the insiders program we're going to be more open and talk about ideas that may or may not come to fruition.
    The idea with insiders is to gauge interest in things, and figure out if people would actually use the features we're designing in the way that we think they will. It might be that we're working on something that we think is awesome, but nobody would actually use. Hope that makes sense!

    Yeah I just couldn't believe what has been happening and what I've been seeing.
     
    I've had no issues with the wifi since I've had the router NewFie.
    Most of my issue have been with it locking up, corrupting the operator system and having to re-flash it and the slow updates by netgear.

    Newfie reacted to Netduma Alex in WORKAROUND: Login not working on Chrome Version 77   
    On the latest version of Chrome (77.0.3865.75) we have identified an issue where users may have trouble logging into their Netgear Nighthawk Pro Gaming router. This affects the XR300, XR450, XR500 and XR700, it does not affect users of the Netduma R1.
    ---
    A workaround for this issue has been found:
    Paste the following address into your Chrome address bar and press enter: chrome://flags/#http-auth-committed-interstitials
    Change the highlighted setting to Disabled and press Relaunch Now
    Now you should be able to log in as normal again

    Newfie reacted to e38BimmerFN in Trying to use XR500 as base station with R6220 as extender   
    Ah ok. Well I suppose we can live with it. One thing I try to do a make a habit of rebooting any EX right before or after the XR if it's in the process of rebooting. This helps to make sure the EX is connected to the XR wifi. I presume if your not at home and the XR fails then the EX would need to be manually booted. 😝

    Something you might bring up to NG to see if they can fix that. My EX7700 don't connect to each other. That I know of. Sounds like NG could maybe make a change in EX FW to wait for the main router to come back online before they attempt other connections. Possible this maybe a side effect of having more than 1 EX on the same SSID as well. 🙄

    Just to chip in that I use 2 EX8000 extenders and they work great. No real issues apart from one where if I reboot the router and the router tenders are left on they connect to each other. They need a function like the Orbi where they can be told to connect to router only.

    I like the format here and the way the  Community works together. It’s a lot better than Netgear support and I’ve the Arlo system and to be honest their forum although now a separate company to Netgear is not a patch to this forum.
    i don’t know another company that helps as much as Netduma, it’s almost 24/7 and here I feel you get a more personal one to one. It’s also friendly and everyone tries to help where they can. Long may it last.

    Instead of asking for a username and password as normal, the router will instead direct you straight to the Password Recovery page.
    We are aware of this issue and all relevant parties have been notified, there will be a fix as soon as possible.

    For the time being, we recommend that you manage your router using a different browser. We have confirmed that the issue does not affect Firefox or Edge.
    We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

    I understand the lay out and I to like the look and feel of the ND forums 💗over NG forums. 

    I would prefer having one central place for XR forum support though. There too much going on between two forums and it's possible that some information gets lost in the noise that goes on between them. 
    We know that NG and ND are different companies, however when it comes to XR routers, it's there product over all. I know that ND works with NG on many things. Just would like to see a bit more consolidation in regards to support forums and users. Would seem to be more helpful for everyone in the long run. 
    However it is was it is and users can post where they feel. Its still NetGear ball when it comes to the XR routers. 😏
    We all need to be patient. 😐

    Yes that sounds about right, the device should connect to 2.4 or 5GHz depending on its needs so if it doesn't connect to 5GHz it either isn't compatible with smart connect or it's unable to connect to 5GHz in general.

    DumaOS works fine with Smart Connect. It's a NETGEAR feature but essentially your device will be listed in Device Manager under whichever band it supports.
