    At least can we have a honest answer if RB951G-2HnD is capable of running DUMA OS ?

    This is a sad day even though I fully understand it is incredibly hard to reach deadlines, but if you set deadlines (make promises) for your community to see and you fail 3/4 times in a row to reach that deadline, how can you even come up with the idea to announce yet again another delay an hour before the promised last and final DEADLINE! Plus I think that your excuse makes no sense, no sense at all. I like the Netduma R1 because it can do things other routers can't, but I have to tell you this, I directly bought the XR500 when it came out and the Netduma OS running on it is buggy as hell, it's terrible, so to a point, I already knew this was going to happen. I mean the Netduma R1 is built on inferior hardware compared to the XR500 and on the XR500, the Netduma OS is already running as a sack of shit, it's full of bugs and glitches and should have never been released in its current state. So I send it back and stayed true to my Netduma R1 that now became obsolete.
    If I had the choice to buy a router from another brand that could do the same things as the Netduma, I would have left you guys, today. Because a promise is a promise an excuse an excuse but you don't delay something a 1 hour before the deadline and get away with a phoney statement that makes no ..... sense. Where are all the Admins now, I only see the customers, GG you are playing Netduma

    Ok..so ive been reading every post on this topic today. Firstly for the people who are responding by calling people that are complaining about another broken deadline.. cry babies, you need to grow up. You have to acknowledge that Netduma over the last few years have done themseves no favours. No one forces them to give deadlines but they do, and inevitably fail.
    I for one am happy to get the update when it arrives, but to come out with a lame excuse that the lawyers at the last minute decided that the Os has to be backward compatible is to me b*** s****.
    The only reason the Os would have to be backward compatible is if Netduma are not 100 percent sure the r1 can fully handle the new Os.
    To post last night at 9.38 that the update would be delayed( do lawyers in the uk work at that time of night?). Yes i am dissapointed like a lot of people, not so much about the delay but about leaving it to the last hour and giving us the people that help build this company such a lame excuse.
    Thats my penny worth

    So since everyone is venting and pissed off thought I would add my 2 cents. As a community (duma, all of us). I would like to say I have enjoyed all of the very intelligent folks that help me with my issues. I've learned a lot. As far as Netduma goes. They are a small company that I feel is really honest and to be honest they are gamers too. Thats why they invented this software. To make gaming better. For me it has changed the game. I was one of the first ppl to get one. Thanks to SimJC. I really understand that everyone is super pissed because to be honest I was super stoked for this update. To be delayed because of legal bs is super lame. But in todays world I guess you have to really watch your back more than your front. So I guess good things come to those who wait. So that's what I will do! Netduma has giving me no reason to bash them. It will all be okay fellas!!! Peace and hair grease! That is all

    I'm sorry that you think that my venting about my frustration here on the forum has to do with anything about my education or how my parents raised me.
    I guess you are someone perfect that never got frustrated and cursed someone.
    You talk about disrespect, but you don't see that the company that promised 2 years ago an update still not delivered, tell how that is respect for its customers.
    You can come here as a knight in shinny armor trying to defend their action, but all you do is come out as a fanboy.
    If I have a product and the company does that kind of shit, I hold them responsible for the lack of communications, lack of transparency, excess of bullshit on the motives of delay.
    I guess I've been spoiled by companies that actually work professionally and with respect.
    As people have pointed out, you actually can't downgrade the firmware now, why would that impact on a newer firmware? Why would they not release the new firmware now and promise an update to enable the downgrade? Why can't you waive that option yourself when you install it?
    Sorry but that is bullshit... I can't handle bullshit, right now I was waiting for the software so I can have static routes, something I think every other router have... And my patience runned out.
    I was recommending the router for my friends, even though it is not cheap to ship for my country, I told them the company and support was top notch, now I'm ashamed I've did that.

    I would just like to point out that every single firmware update on the R1 since its inception has had no backwards compatibility. 
    Once you updated to a newer firmware, you couldn't go back. 
    People have gone against Netduma's warnings and updated their R1s to a previous firmware but took a huge risk in bricking the device. 
    But we were told from the beginning of every new firmware that going back to a previous firmware was not an option. 
    So this 'backwards compatibility' excuse is just that, an excuse. 
    Just tell us the R1 can't run well with DUMAOS and be done with it. 
    Stop with the excuses already.

    Were you one of the testers as well?  Also whatever happened to PUBLIC beta for the DumaOS for the R1?  I am not trying to give you a hard time or anyone for that matter not even NetDuma I am simply trying to show my frustration and not give a pass for them.  They haven't earned a pass.  I can understand business model with NetGear I can even understand this DELAY but I do not accept the LIE that they only found out about this the day of.  NetDuma company is turning into EA its just that NetDuma is a lot smaller.

    Weeks at most is not a definite.  It does not even come out as an educated guess its just a guess that was pulled out of thin air.  I don't believe that you guys learned this when the clock struck midnight.  It is a real shame that you bought time and waited till the last second to announce the delay.

    Sgt-Greco reacted to thegaurdian1 in R1 DumaOS Briefly Delayed   
    I find this a bit depressing.  There is no way that you guys found out about this yesterday or when the clock struck midnight.  I am sure you and the company were aware at least a few days if not longer and kept it quiet.  Why not announce the delay as soon as you were aware of it?  It is not the end of the world to wait a few more weeks but delay itself is cryptic and might not be true.  There is a pattern that is emerging and I just don't see it being a good thing.  Fingers crossed that it doesn't take longer than what you have speculated.  Good luck.
    I just hope gamer's and your customers in general don't start seeing NetDuma like they do EA and the way Battlefront 2 was shunned.
    Thank You

    duma os was planned to be released in 2016.
    imagine a customer wasnt enough impressed with the current software (1.x) to buy the r1, but saw ads from netduma about duma os coming fall 2016 and bought the r1 because duma os convinced him and netduma said it will come fall 2016. what do you want to tell that guy? how can you still defend netduma?
    just look at the DumaOS twitter account, its wrong advertising at its best!

    And for the record i owned the nighthawk for a week and was forced to return it. Without the ping assist for me it was useless that was 2 months ago and i was told then the ping assist would be dded soon, lol as soon as i heard that i returned it and went back to the R1. Whether or not ping assist has been added yet is beyond me. This is about money, they expect us to go out and buy another $300 router for better wifi and hardware, i did just that and got screwed. The only way im buying the nighthawk is if netduma allows me to return my current router and credits me half of what i paid. False advertisement at its best

    As an R1 user for many years, I saw this coming. The Silence was deafening. 
    I don't agree with the excuse, since many hardware companies are providing firmware updates that can't be rolled back.
    Oppo and Asus are two such companies. 
    I also find it hard to believe that you waited until the last day before release to ask the legal department about backwards compatibility or that your legal department waited til the last day before telling you that it needed backwards compatibility.
    I have the feeling that Iain is having a terrible time trying to get the under-powered R1 hardware to work well with DUMAOS. 
    I'm not holding my breath for your new timetable either. 
    There are several companies providing very good routers with fq-codel QOS, but without the Geo-Filter of the R1.
    Most gamers don't even need the Geo-filter since they live so close to dedicated servers. They just need a powerful router with good QOS. 
    Time will tell if these continued delays hurt Netduma or not. 
    EDIT: removed 'XR500 being made by Asus' comment. XR500 is a Netgear product.

    Fuzzy Clam, if you want to be a gullible nitwit go ahead. You dont announce legal issues with an update the day before. They knew this was the deal, and played us. Now if you dont agree ok thats your opinion. But if you cant see right through this i feel sorry for you and what your working with upstairs

    Here are my settings that work for me in the UK. (I'm now back to 25-5 KDR ...yay!)
    I cant verify this works for CONSOLE owners, but you can try it and see.....
      [in-Game Lag Solution]
    Okay.... So I found a much smoother COD WWII (Pc) game-play experience by changing my Gaming Pc from a Pc to an XBOX in device manager (this is Optional and not totally necessary - both ways work , Pc or as a console), and then adding that as a device in Geo Filter (and QoS at 70/70 sliders)
    I noticed a significant improvement in game in terms of ping (40ms is the sweet spot as previously mentioned by another poster)
    I have my Geo radius set to EXCLUDE the entire UK (where my IP is hosted) and set it centered to Mid-Europe. (This method should work for everyone , in your own area, as long as you check that your ping to game server is as close to 40ms as you can get (40ms is the "sweet-spot" for COD WWII on PC).
    Previously i was connecting to UK servers with a low ping and getting destroyed every game. Low ping in this game is of no benefit, in fact quite the opposite.
    So, here are the settings that work perfect for me....
    I perfected my WWII (Pc) gaming experience by using both a VPN and the XR500 Geo location system.
    I use IPVanish VPN, connected to Nottingham servers. (I live in Northern Ireland UK)
    I have my Geo location set to Mid-Europe and the circle set to just almost touch the English channel. (Thus excluding the entire UK!!)
    This gives me a perfect ping around 35-40ms (this ping will give you best hit-rate in game) on European servers & P2P hosts.
    I now have great game-play with this setting. 
    Bare in mind, this is only for WWII and you should play around with your own settings for different games.
    Note: While this works perfect for me, it may not for others!! Given that I live in N.Ireland, and my BT servers are London based, my base ping to BT is 18ms. This will come into play if you attempt to use my settings. You WILL have to play around with your own VPN connection location as that will affect your ping to European servers. I used Ping Plotter to determine the best ping . I.e. VPN on Nottingham and connecting to a German WWII server.  Basically, you want a ping of 38ms to a WWII server...
    [Geo-Filter settings]
    Pc Added as "Call of Duty" Device with [Filtering Mode ENABLED]

    [uPDATE] - I have now amended the information as the Amsterdam server must have been upgraded. It now pings at 24ms (used to be around 35+)
    NOTE: However !!, By using my VPN settings (scroll back up a bit) I have since able to expand my radius slightly to now include the Amsterdam server. Using a VPN creates "virtual lag" , just enough to generate the perfect 38ms ping to the WWII Game servers in Europe.

    Additionally, I did use Port Triggering in my setup (im not sure this is totally necessary ... but because it gave me an OPEN NAT i just left it active)
    I did notice occasionally that if i wasn't using Port Triggering and just relied on UPnP, I sometimes got a Moderate NAT... with Port Triggering, i get OPEN NAT 100% of the time)
    Note: Not to be confused with Port Forwarding !, port triggering will only open the ports as and when requested.... therefore, more secure!  
    [Port Triggering Setting] - Ports Enabled (see table further down for all WWII ports across each platform)

    [Anti-Bufferfloat Setting] - Set to "When High Priority Traffic Detected". Sliders set to, 70% / 70%

    Ports Used by COD WWI are;
    [Traffic Prioritization Setting] - Set to DumaOS Classified Games - Disabled. (Use ports defined for your Device from above table.

    [bandwidth Allocation Setting]  (i gave my gaming rig 20% / 20% on BOTH Download and Upload)


    [My Broadband speeds tested as being 70Mbps DL and 12Mbps Upload - so i set these in the QoS Setting during the initial router setup]

    You can do you own speedtest anytime though - this can be done anytime within the router by going to Settings, Setup Wizard , choose Yes and follow prompts....
