    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.

    Please look into QoS: - Device Independant Type of Service prioritization, capable of re-ordering various common ports/traffic types as needed. Allowing a "custom port" option would go a long way as well. - More common protocol types in the prioritization fields than just tcp and udp, as sctp has become a common protocol for gaming, for example. As well, "all" or "0" would be a useful option for full device prioritization. NAT/Port Forwarding: - Real full cone support (I can link the patches if it helps) or a dedicated console dmz would be very helpful. - Again, more protocols supported for forwarding. Thanks and have a good one! Edit: For QoS, device prioritization as a separate option from bandwidth slice would be good too, as often the services whose packets we need to go out first don't necessarily require high bandwidth. Also, offline devices NEED to be removed from QoS calculation AUTOMATICALLY. Frankly, I was surprised to see that I needed to remove an offline device from dhcp reservation and manually update the distribution table when a device leaves the network. You guys need to base distribution solely on connection status because I don't want to have to manually update router settings every time I turn off a computer.

    The 5, 9, and 14 eyes work in coalition to intercept and closely analyze both offline and online activities of the masses. These intelligence agencies don’t just operate in their own designated jurisdictions, but also in other countries where they don’t have legal rights. If for say NSA wants to track down someone in Canada, they can just ask CSEC to handle the operation for them. The primary goal of these organizations is to fend off any threats to national security. Some of the VPNs that we use falls under 5, or 9 or 14 eyes. So make sure the VPN that you guys are using does not fall under their jurisdictions.

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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.

    The geo filter is the only thing keeping me on this router. Openwrt has better qos, bufferbloat, wireless speed, and an updated miniupnpc. Netgear will eol the router before fixing it. If I knew duma didn't have complete control over firmware and updates, I would of bought the r1, which I assume duma has complete control over the hardware.

    UPnP Drop and Not Working

    Hey Fraser.. What the Op is saying is also something im experiencing as well and have been for sometime now.. UPnP is not properly doing its job. It becomes stagnant. If I do a hard reset to the router and jump into a game its fine.. But with the very next new session it sometimes does not refresh to pick up any additional new ports if there are any.. Its not a problem if the next new session doesn't have any new ports but that is very hit and miss. Every new session usually always has a new port. Also even when the session is over and the said device is no longer online UPnP is still showing active.. Even when I pull the ethernet cord from the said device days later it still shows its active.. Which just tells you that UPnP has become unreliable at this point.. And ones NAT type will become inaccurate.. Again this is something ive reported almost 5 months ago.. This is not a visual error.. Im starting to see that used a lot on here for a answer to issues these routers are having.. If it was a visual error one would not have a performance hit from this with each new session.. One can easily test this using wireshark.. Things like this need to be resolved in a much more timely manner. Now this is likely a Netgear issue.. But also don't forget that DumaOS is on it as well and I would make sure Netgear is representing you guys properly.. Is there any beta firmware's out there that you or Netgear ever let people test? If so how can I become part of this? Again please don't take this to heart.. These are issues that ive been trying to express for sometime and what causes this is uncertain to me.. But its literally impossible to help with things like this without any test or trial from either Netgear or NetDuma.. Zippy.

    Upnp needs to be updated to the latest miniupnpc. That's on netgear. Good luck with that. They haven't updated it in years.

    Packet Loss

    Hey yokenchin The thing is when you say your looking for a more stable connection you are actually looking for a low stable ping.. A stable connection will result in lower consistent ping.. Which is a must for gaming.. If you have had Comcast out to your place already and they still cant find anything then I would look at your modem.. If Comcast is running DOCSIS 3.1 then I would go with a new modem like the SB8200.. Another thing also I want to point out as well is if you show Comcast your ping plotter results pinging a game server they likely wont give those any credit.. To test your connection using ping plotter you have to use Comcasts dns servers they give you by default.. Take one of those and run a ping plotter test and see what you get.. Does Comcast have there own dns servers? Good luck! Zippy.

    Xr500 with comcast

    2 ps4s and upnp doesn't work correctly. Use port triggering to get open nat on both consoles. Set static ips for both consoles. Triggering port will be the same for both consoles 3074 udp and 9308 udp. Set one ps4 with same ports for inbound. Change other ps4 to 3075 udp and 9307 udp for inbound. This is a sony problem. They need to have a select port option like Xbox does.

    Yeah I believe that to be the case. Pubg xbox has never played so well for me till after AL came out.
