Update Firmware NETGEAR RX1000 does not have VPN Hybrid

Recommended Posts

Hello

You can update the netgear RX1000 router with another different firmware such as the netduma r2 that has the option of the VPN hybrid enabled, I need to connect with my express VPN account for the gaming issue on my PS5 device, because for this new router with the software duma os3.0 I could not find a solution.

 

Regards

Hi unfortunately the firmwares are handled by Netgear and VPN is not supported at the moment. 
 

What issue are you running into where you require the vpn?

Welcome to the forum @Heisenberg!

As Newfie said, it's not currently available for the XR1000, it could be in future though. 

Generally speaking, putting game traffic through a VPN just adds latency so it won't benefit your gaming experience.

hi Newfie,

I am from a region of Latin America, and I need to connect through the express VPN, since this service allows me to lower the ping and have faster connections for my online games from my PS5 device or from the device that I want to connect, I see that the NETDUMA R2 router has this VPN hybrid option enabled and on the Express Vpn page you have the guide and the integration of the NETDUMA R2 router to the VPN service

Are you using an R2 or an XR1000? The R2 has Hybrid VPN, the XR1000 doesn't have it yet.

HI Liam


-At the time, I bought the RX1000, because I thought that he had the VPN Hybrid, now as I investigated I feel a bit disappointed by the product since it has a limitation with the VPN issue. and it does not allow routing to where I want,

-my question is. When you think you are going to place this function of the VPN Hybrid to the RX1000, I need to know to see if I return the product and buy the NET DUMA R2 because I see that this RX1000 is more focused on WIFI solutions, since both have the duma 3.0 system.

 

¿Or please explain to me that the R2 differs from the RX1000?

It's actually Netgear's decision, as it's their hardware. I believe there are plans to add Hybrid VPN in the future but that's definitely subject to change, so I can't guarantee it.

The R2 isn't quite as powerful as the XR1000 in terms of it's specs, but it does receive new updates and features ahead of any other unit so it's got that going for it. If you've got a particularly large household, consider also purchasing wireless access points to go with the R2, or look at the XR500 from Netgear.

Hi LIAM,

-I understand what you are saying, but if it disappoints a lot.

-I live in Colombia, I bought the RX1000 to reduce the ping that I have is 90MS or 100ms, which is impossible where I am, because of the distance and the HFC coaxial network technology, what kind of technology do they guarantee to reduce the ping with this RX1000 router , I have 200Mb download and 11MB upload?

 

Regards

You can use QoS and the Geo-Filter to help but if there are no nearby servers to you then the ping to your closest server is unlikely to change - the router will help keep it stable but no necessarily lower it

Hi Fraser,

What solution can I have with you about the VPN of the RX1000 router since it does not have the hybrid VPN? that was my only alternative to connect via vpn express to the servers in the USA and reduce the pin

Tunnelling your traffic through a VPN won't reduce ping unfortunately, the traffic still has to travel the same distance regardless. You may even find that the ping is higher as there's a few extra steps/hops with a VPN.
