    Valvaris got a reaction from Codester in Modem + Router different subsets or not?   
    Hello @Etherealize
    to explain how IP Address works we just keep it simple with your IP's

    (XR-R2-R1) Router [Interface WAN] <---192.168.0.x /24 or> Modem [Interface LAN 1]

    Router WAN IP should be and the Modem LAN IP is depends on DHCP Settings from the Modem. The CIDR is 24 and refers on the bit's used for the subnet in that case 24 times a 1 or four times 8bit in Binary - Decimal 255 = 11111111 - So the Subnet is like 11111111.11111111.11111111.00000000 - This means that the first three octets are not allowed to change on the IP Address - 192.168.0.x - The only octet to allowed to change is the fourth one from 00000000 to 11111111 in Dec 0 to 255 and since we use a IPv4 Protocol we are not allowed to use the first and the last Address in that range. Example: (Network Address) and (Broadcast Address) - The ones we are allowed to use is to 

    That is were proper configuration can be of a advantage for IT-Security and Usability - Keep your ranges small - Example for the Router to Modem Network this is more then enough -> for the XR and for the Modem with the Subnet CIDR /30 - DEC - Binary  11111111.11111111.11111111.111111 00 

    Since we look at this in the Binary view it will look like:
    11111111.11111111.11111111.111111 00 = (Network Address)
    11111111.11111111.11111111.111111 01 = - Modem LAN IP
    11111111.11111111.11111111.111111 10 = - XR WAN IP
    11111111.11111111.11111111.111111 11 = (Broadcast Address)
    255           .255            .255           .252 - Subnet Mask
    You can setup this Static for both Interfaces XR WAN and Modem LAN - To get rid of Re-Addressing the WAN interface when the Lease is over from the DHCP Server from the Modem - because that has to go thru a procedure every time we love to call DORA -> Discover - Offer - Request - Acknowledge - With Static IP's there is no need for the device to process all this.

    XR Example WAN IP Settings:
    IP Address:
    DNS1: Cloudflare 
    DNS2: Cloudflare
    Modem LAN IP Setup:
    DHCP = Off
    LAN IP also Device IP =
    Subnet =

    On the XR LAN Side you are totally fine and can keep it as is. ^^

    If there are any question do not hesitate to ask.

    Best regards

    Hello @Netduma Fraser
    I disabled QoS Congestion and Netgear Armor.
    I report back if something happens or if nothing happens.
    Best regards
  3. Thanks

    You can come to us, the only part of the software that belongs to Netgear is settings so we can make changes based on peoples feedback of DumaOS for whatever model they have
  4. Thanks

    No it's not possible to do that, the features may be implemented in the future but that is up to Netgear. We only sell the R2 direct from netduma.com and we can offer 1 working day delivery to Germany.

    Welcome to the forum!
    The XR1000 should be running DumaOS 3.0 right out of the box for you, the only features that aren't on the XR1000 are HybridVPN and Adblocker.

    Hello NetDuma-Team / NetDuma Community,
    did I just bone myself on buying a XR1000?
    Are there any new features coming out?

    The reason why I ask is that there is a DumaOS ver. 3 for the R2 but think that those features will never make it on the XR1000.
    Many thanks in advance
    P.S. Or did I misunderstand something major?
