bbursley Posted May 4, 2019 Share Posted May 4, 2019 thoughts on these? If I were to upgrade from the R1 which is really a smart choice? Im leaning more between the xr300 and 500. Since they are really just as powerful of routers from what I can tell as far as processing power goes. Sure wifi might be "faster" but honestly thats something nobody will ever notice without gigabit speeds anyways. Im kinda worried the 300 wont have enough juice for the really intensive future of the DumaOS, since as I have seen with the R1 it tends to max the CPU a bit from time to time, adding anything more demanding is surely a lost cause for it. But the XR500 seems like its got the best of all worlds. Speedy CPU, Good wifi, etc. DO these routers also offer DMZ? If so how does that work with the GEO and other features? I know I only have a 100/10 line, but for a router to have that extra Oomph matters it would seem. Also If anyone can speak for modems, If I do not have a Puma chipset is there any need to buy any other kind? This one I have now is a Ubee from spectrum, and I cant say that its not performing as it should since it seems to be, I think Im just lagging behind in router power, and tbh I am kinda over the R1's weak wifi. I know that is due mostly to other router interference though. The R1 was a blessing for my old DSL, but nowadays I think its slightly trailing behind. Id still recommend it to most people since it does work well, but id rather be futureproofed at this point since I want to move after graduating and live that fiber life someday :P.
