Re: xr500 beta DUMAOS 3.0

I was lucky enough that a fellow user here on the forum sent me the xr500 beta, I flashed it and everything is working perfectly.
So no need to wait for a email now.

Re: xr500 beta DUMAOS 3.0

@Tonyladz that fix isn't in the current beta build but will be in one of the next ones. For now there are several things you can try such as setting static in Internet Setup and giving IP reservations to devices in LAN Settings. Some people have also found success downgrading to .32 or .40 though you will miss out on some security updates by doing that.

Re: xr500 beta DUMAOS 3.0

Hi, How long will we have to wait for the beta of the xr500, I am waiting from day one, i do all the steps and still do not receive anything, I was going to buy the r2 but seeing your service class I will wait to see dumaos 3.0, I would like to test the beta in the xr500. Is there a way that you can send me the link to my email? I would appreciate it...

Re: xr500 beta DUMAOS 3.0

The beta should have been released to ALL who registered at once, atm it is being drip feeded & at this rate I have lost hope in the router and the coming OS,my router is basically a 300eur plastic door stopper.

@Klaox, I believe you posted on the Netduma forum as well, we'll try to get you bumped up the list.

@elCuculuz as it's a router and usually a central part of a household it could be very disruptive to release a firmware that potentially has bugs in to thousands of people all at once with no control. By controlling the flow of testers it improves the likelihood that it will stable by release.

Re: xr500 beta DUMAOS 3.0

I get what you are saying about it, but beta testing usually means the users is okay & is aware of the features that it may have & that it may not work as intended. I'd rather have the ability to test it straight away once it was released tha wait such a long time to be invited.

People can always flash back the previous os if they don't like the glitches or bugs that come with the new operating system, but for people who want to test stuff the waiting time is to long.

yes, because someone in the other forum told me that I had to come here because netgear is the one that sends the beta test...

Re: xr500 beta DUMAOS 3.0

I get your point as well and I realize it is frustrating but it would be chaos with thousands posting bugs/comments etc and would actually slow us down.

@Klaox, as long as you signed up with the NG Community username to the form then no need to post here as the NG staff don't post here so couldn't boost you up the list.

There is no delay, we're getting people invited on a gradual basis to ensure stability and that we can fix any bugs/issues as they arise.
