    I’m thinking the same to be honest,only got mine in October and it’s a piece of junk really ,to many bugs ,my R7800 with voxel firmware was better,sold that though so might just get the Netgear XR500,will have to wait until March for Uk release of that though so will have to persevere.....I...

    I hear what you are saying and for a high end router that’s a long time,I’m using the latest official and it been running fine,so I will revert back if next is garbage,let’s hope in that 5 months they have got it right,well you would think so.

    Not as far as I`m aware, GT does not really need it in my opinion, the netgear really does if it`s going to be dedicated gaming.

    Tim, Netgear are not doing it alone and are now partnered with Netduma who created the OS

    Would not surprise me, the DumaOS is very good but paired with Netgear probably calling the shots, I hope Netduma have some sort of clause in there to stop that as they have worked hard to create this OS over the years
