    I don't think it will kill off consoles either. It will however be interesting to see how it performs after the 2-6 months hype train has left the station and we get to see how bad the lag is by real world users outside of googles controlled environment. Time will tell, but I won't be 1 of the minions that gets it on release day. I have the nvidia shield and have never even bothered with their cloud gaming service!

    r1 has issues

    Yeh as Tray said, Super Turbo mode disables it in the old software

    PS4 SDD broken?

    XD I'm glad you sorted that out Joe, that fan looks dire. Problem solved!
  5. Great suggestions, thanks for these. We'll never settle, since improvements can always be made. We're actually working on ways to deal with offline devices better, since we aren't too happy with how the current Device Manager handles it. All sorts of exciting stuff coming this year

    Don't underestimate the power of Google marketing / the existing Google user base! It'll take off whether we like it or not imo, especially if the platform is free with full cost games... but I don't believe it'll kill off consoles / shake the industry in the way they're conceiving.
  7. Thanks for explaining, I think I just leave my location in the ocean for a while until I'm ready to try a different setting. My NAT type is set to OPEN.
  8. Awesome, I'm glad you're having a great time now 1: Probably. It wouldn't really make a difference if you did, it might mean you get servers inside your radius though which might complicate the setup. Keep it simple imo. 2: You'll only connect to hosts / servers with a ping lower than the ping value you've chosen - that's the function of Ping Assist. 3: Anti-Bufferbloat doesn't work on a per-device basis; I'd just leave Anti-Bufferbloat on 80/80 on 'When High Priority Traffic Detected', then give your PS4 probably 40% of the bandwidth using Bandwidth Allocation. That'll be a good setup - it doesn't need anything more to get past local congestion. I'm pretty sure issues with connecting to friends are a Sony problem - they don't let you select ports on the console itself, so party issues can happen pretty easily with a router involved. What's your NAT type?

    VPN configuration issue

    That's correct, but also extremely common. Even on a Nighthawk XR500 with a dual-core CPU you'd still get around 10mbps, and on an XR700 - the best router money can buy with a quad-core CPU, you'd get around 20mbps. With Hybrid VPN you can exclude devices from the VPN if you want to reach your max speeds on those; something no other router can do.
  11. Welcome to the forum this seems great, it's blocking everything outside the radius as expected. Those triangles are all players who you might've connected to without the Geo-Filter enabled. You'd only start getting dashed circles around some connections if you set Ping Assist to a reasonable number, maybe 50ms. It depends on what connections are available around your location though.

    Xr500 with comcast

    Awesome advice. I'd agree that it's a Sony problem - I only see this issue happening persistently with PS4's.

    r1 has issues

    In original firmware of R1, you can disable QOS, in miscellaneous on the left-hand side panel and ticking the option "super turbo" this will disable the function of QOS completely.

    Apex Legends LAG please help.

    This is true though generally we don't recommend pinging the game servers directly with Pingplotter. It depends on what you're trying to find out though. If you want to learn how good / bad a server is then that'd be a good way, but if you want to find out whether you have any upstream issues like Ping Spikes, pinging a game server won't give you accurate results. (Since it will display not only your spikes, but any spikes occurring further down the line with the game server - and you can't tell which is which.)

    xr700

    It is better for you to roll back as .10 has several known issues and was released by Netgear without our involvement. Please roll back.
  16. Thanks guys for you restored my faith in Netduma R1, over the weekend it worked great especially multiplayer I could easily tell my bullets hit my enemies (hit marker). I still need some clarifications thou. Can you guys please answer the following questions: Question 1. Can I move the Geo Filter Pointer from middle of the ocean sea to my location England? If yes will I still get same experience(good connection) Will I get connected to random servers with same ping? Question 2. What does Ping Assist do/Function? I see alot of Peers icons pop up on the world map. I do understand I will only connect to Servers/Peers on the same ping? If I'm correct? I also notice my friends outside England could connect to me easily than before. Question 3. Is there anyway I can force my PS4 to ALWAYS at least 80% connect to a dedicated server? Finally I do remember asking this before with friends not able to join me on my lobby, yes they are on the ALLOW list which they are out of my Geo filter radius but retarting my PS4 or game application fixes this but I wouldn't want to be restarting all the time for some friends to connect, also I cant connect to them either. Any advice on this?

    UPnP Drop and Not Working

    R1 is really old and not even dual band Zippy. Also the CPU has no grunt for modern 4K streaming etc. I would suggest trying a R7800, same hardware as the XR500 but 128mb less flash ram, but better QoS using Qualcomms Streamboost. You can then use Voxels firmware to update all the packages that NTGR fail to. The XR500 is due a update, its just over 3 mths since the last one, lots of bugs need squashing but so far nothing has been released yet. Quarterly updates if you are lucky is not the way a company should update its routers especially ignoring things like miniupnd and OpenSSL etc. The latter having been patched by NTGR but not publicly and is still at version 1.0 which is over a decade old. Not sure about OpenGPL for the new AX routers but they are a hot mess right now anyway and not to be bought in my view till the final draft later in the year and the possibility of new new silicon that will work with the final features that present SoCs probably wont.

    PS4 SDD broken?

    Yeah, it was really alot inside after 5 years. Thanks for all the info about the youtubers. That sucks

    UPnP Drop and Not Working

    I would say Streamboost is better and once set is relax and forget. FQ_CoDel and Cake are both great, maybe you should have a look at Streamboost that's nestling under the hood of the XR500 still in NTGRS firmware or check out Cake, both work brilliantly. No offence to DumaOS which eclipses the Netgear GUi too, but I'm pretty much in the same boat as Sunaikinti. geo really helps but the R7800 QoS is much simpler, sadly no hardware acceleration with OpenSSL as NTGR never updated it from two+ years ago, although Voxel has, but QoS on DumaOS can be a pain, and after asking for months for guides for setting bandwidth for devices like printers and soundbars and Wi-Fi speakers, even phones and tablets still nothing. I really have no idea what my printer should be set to download or upload wise, or my iPhone XS or iPad Pro or Zeppelin Wireless, Its all guess work. Streamboost handled all this automatically and still gave you the option to adjust it manually as well. If DumaOS could do that or give the option for that function it would be brilliant.

    PS4 SDD broken?

    Wow that's a lot of dust, glad you got it open and cleaned out. Youtubers have great connections, usually they have dedicated lines and live close to a server. There's one guy on this forum live 10 minutes drive from a major server which explains why he melts everyone. Unless you live close to a games server farm, have a business class connection (such as leased line) static ip address and have good sponsorship then the chances of you having a connection such as drift0r, xclusiveace and all those others then are pretty remote then you are gonna have to suck it up like the rest of us and make do with what you got!

    r1 has issues

    very good apart from the fact i dont have duma os , as i stated in my original post.

    PS4 SDD broken?

    I somehow managed to open the ps4 and didnt look good inside :). The Ps4 is now running smoother and isnt loud anymore. But the only thing that drives me crazy is menue lag of blops4. Is the game buggy or what can it be? Because when I watch youtubers I dont see any stuttering in the pregame menue. hmmm

    VPN configuration issue

    Thanks for help, it worked, but now my speeds are capped at 10/5. After some googling i found out that R1 is limited to those speeds because of Encryption/Decprition and slow cpu 😕

    UPnP Drop and Not Working

    Unfortunately that was my other issue you just brought up! QoS.. I also have much better luck using Openwrt or ASUSwrt.. And I know NetDumaOS should perform the same if not even better but it doesn't for me.. Im really putting a lot of faith in the next firmware update that I hope shakes something lose in my XR500.. If I knew someone near me that had an R1 for sale id buy it.. Id love to compare this to my XR500.. Zippy.

    UPnP Drop and Not Working

    Thanks Fraser.. With these visual effects and the lack to be able to verify anything because of such things makes me wonder if I showed up to early to the party with the merger of Netgear and you guys.. Maybe in a few years things will have moved into a more transparent situation so one can verify things.. I honestly wish I would have been here during the R1 hay days! Basically what I did was bridge my computer between my xbox and router and used wireshark to capture the ports.. With each new session the list of ports sometimes would change.. And for some reason they would not always be picked up by UPnP.. I did this verification by using a port checker tool while with in the capture of existing and new port numbers.. The existing ports would come up as opened. But there would be times that it wouldn't always open any new ports.. Sometimes it would finally open them but that would be in the middle or towards the end of a game or session.. And this is what I mean by a performance hit.. Because you can clearly feel the difference in a game.. I think for now I will just wait and see what the next new firmware does.. I have the XR500 btw.. And for any future ideas we need a up to date UPnP table that shows everything.. I feel this XR500 is dumb down way to much.. Thanks again! Zippy.
  27. Here's another example that's less clustered with more outside of my radius. This is 95%+ of my games.
