ANNOUNCEMENT: DUMAOS 3.0 IS HERE

Recommended Posts

This is only my opinion, but a beta version remains a beta version with its share of bug and regression!
I was the first to want to test 3.0 on the XR500 ... But think about it ... I would rather wait a little longer and test a stable version rather than be disappointed with a worse beta than V.56.

After, what concerns me more for the moment, these are the skills of the 20 insiders chosen by netgear to track bugs ...

The future will tell ...

People make themselves stupid to be fair by getting overzealous about pieces of plastic and metal.

a piece of plastic and metal worth 300 euros, which I worked for, so you can get nervous, I don't even care about this beta, I only read and I don't believe what bigger companies do with their consumers,

I bought an XR500 and XR700, paid for what they offered and now they offer us more upgrades at no extra cost.....try upgrading PC software with version changes.
All the hours it takes to develop need time and costs that most cannot be amortized without bringing out a new product.

Holy crap it's been a hot minute since i've been on this forum! Anyways, I'm really excited to test out this new firmware and I'm gonna try to be on here more often especially with my home internet being.... less than desirable. I run on a ADSL2+ line of 16D/1U and let me tell you... trying to keep bandwidth flowing for a few users is uhh.... frustrating lol. DUMA was the first router that really helped share bandwidth without letting a single device hog it, one of the more frustrating sides to something like OpenWRT. Especially applications like Battle dot net and steam (looking at you multiple connection frames 😑) even after doing some serious tweaking it never seemed to run just how i wanted. I ended up using my Netgear X4S as a fancy AP and plugging back up the DUMA, especially after hearing about 3.0 and all the fancy stuff heading our way. This isn't some fluff paid advertisement nor am i sponsored by them, i just know good software when i see it. To the Netduma team, Thank you all for your hard work and continued patience with your user base especially when we get a little frazzled. You guys have kept cool heads when you've easily had the right to lose it on a few folks, that is stellar customer service right there. I hope you and your families are happy and healthy on the other side of the pond, cheers fella's!

I get it and all the praise but, that is not going to get you to the front of the six feet apart line, probably with hundreds of people before you and duma only letting one customer in at a time to try the beta lol..

question? what has not started yet? a small beta group or a beta to the masses that own an R1?

I am not included in their group regarding the R1. So take my comment's as only my opinion on the matter. But if I had to guess, the current build they have for the R1, just isn't ready for more testers. When you all see delay's, and things get quiet for a little bit. Just think a little bit. Work is likely being done a good amount, to fix some current issues, before the beta starts.

To be real honest with some of the comments I have seen in this thread. I feel some people expect the beta to be great at the start, and be able to use it, without any issues. People need to calm down their expectations. As the early part of most beta's are pretty buggy, and the hope is none of the bugs are in the "major" category.

What are you talking about many software companies offer enhancements for free for years.... IOS, Google, Windows 10 was free. Does new hardware come out sure, but i don't buy a new phone every update or a new pc every feature release

I wasn't angling for front of the line, was just saying people should be patient for free stuff. Especially when the current firmware works pretty damn well if you take the time to tweak it out.

Yes there is a small batch of testers testing it right now and more testers will be added gradually so keep an eye out.

signed up as soon as it was available any word on how much longer until the XR700 beta for 3.0 ?

Once we've confirmed stability on the XR500 we'll do the 700 as they shouldn't be too dissimilar but the last thing we want to do is spread ourselves too thin.

I hope I get in, really need the parental controls part of it for my xr500

This.

This is the deal breaker for me,  I was unaware at the time of the purchase the current parental controls on the XR500 are obsolete and also managed by Netgear.

You will be happy with what is in the beta then!

I agree the the software does work pretty darn good when you tweak it so i'm not hyped like many are for an update that i'm not sure will make it any better than it is now when it comes to lag only through bandwidth allocation, server choice and bad game connections from an isp.. Duma had addressed this when they made the OS years ago.

there is nothing more to add accept polish by bells and whistles. Hell i don't have issues except for too many devices on at once, high cpu usage  and maybe control over devices to lock out the snot nosed son or nerf his connection when he's being big brains. Upgraded to an XR450 only because its newer and i got a renewed through amazon for 139.. I will sell my R1 to a friend after upgrading and keep the XR450..

To end i could be wrong but really only see a repackaging of what already works with some more control over functionality. Nothing new really but don't tell this to anyone who thinks the update will fix the bad isp or maybe bad skills at fps games lol..
