DumaOS is a powerful router operating system that gives you control of your home network.

It is pre-installed on the NETGEAR Nighthawk XR500, XR450 and XR700. 

Setting up your Router

The first step in accessing DumaOS on your router is to connect a PC or laptop to your router. You can do this either with a wired or wireless.

If using WiFi, search for your router’s Wi-Fi name (SSID) and enter the password.

  • On the Netduma R1, the default name is 'Netduma R1' and the password is the serial number taken from the label on the bottom of the router (do not enter the '/' and the final three characters after it. 
  • On the R2, the SSID will be NetdumaR2 and the password is printed on the underside of the router.
  • On the Nighthawk routers, the default name and password are on a label on your router
