Re: XR700 - DumaOS 3.0 Beta Firmware

I can totally see where you're coming from. As I'm sure you know, there's a lot that goes on in the background and Fraser and I do our best to ensure we give you as much information as possible. We really don't like giving hard dates for things because a lot can change in the world of software. Believe me, getting updates and firmware out is the number one thing we're working on currently and we're doing our best to reduce any delays that could prolong it. Thanks as always for your patience.

Nothing at the moment, we'll be sure to update when there is a firmware available.

Re: XR700 - DumaOS 3.0 Beta Firmware

Well Fraser, it's now a month since you stated news would come "very soon". 
In the ordinary world that means days or a week...

 

I am feeling like a turntable disc that's stuck and repeating: what can you tell us?

 

In this blog you have seen messages from people that are used to be involved in dev. 
And we are all wanting to know what we can do to help the devs, and to get grip of the dev process. But nothing has come of it and with messages that dev is ongoing (with no time table shared) and messages about that "soon" there will be news x without anything happening has pushed people to get other hardware and/or to be sarcastic here. 

a shame since all in this blog want to see something firm.

 

No need to wait with a release for x-mas - please release what we all have been waiting for the last year. Okay?

 

Thanks!

Re: XR700 - DumaOS 3.0 Beta Firmware

Re: XR700 - DumaOS 3.0 Beta Firmware

The XR500 was easier to port to, it's also the first XR router we did so it made sense to do it on this model as well, given it is the most popular it also gives us more of a customer base to get feedback on. Don't worry another update will be coming for the 700.

Re: XR700 - DumaOS 3.0 Beta Firmware

By now I am deeply regretting that I purchased the Netgear Nighthawk XR700 firstly there is no DumaOS 3 e.g. Features that were marketed before purchase. Second it is unstable as f*, for example I get constant packet loss, lower Download/Upload speeds, my Google Home stops working on a weekly basis it sucks more than the Router provided by my ISP Vodafone (which also is one of the most hated Routers) and I don't get spending way over €200 for it.

 

I will replace it soon with something better, the issues are getting non-ignorable.

Re: XR700 - DumaOS 3.0 Beta Firmware

The official release is waiting on Netgear currently. They released the full release version for the XR450/500 and they'll be doing this one too. Unfortunately, that means we don't have any ETA as to when they're going to release it.

Re: XR700 - DumaOS 3.0 Beta Firmware

From what I have read in the other forum on Netduma's side is DumaOS for the xr700 is already finished by the Netduma team. It is now up to Netgear to finalize their part on it and release it. Am I correct on this?

Re: XR700 - DumaOS 3.0 Beta Firmware

I really feel swindled by purchasing a router with DumaOS and Netgear paying a premium for this I expected more frequent updates.  Will no longer purchase either ever again.

The DumaOS features are finalised for the official 3.0 release and NETGEAR will release this version when it's passed their internal testing and processes.

Re: XR700 - DumaOS 3.0 Beta Firmware

The partnership appears to be unfair. You develop the firmware, you ship it to Netgear, you come in here on their site to get insulted/harassed, and Netgear isn't even home?

 

They nursing a hang over or playing an epic game of lawn darts?

 

No matter, I'll continue lurking for an annoucement and my XR700 is ready to return to production usage once available.
