    Netgear xr500 router

    I assume your setup is: Modem (or modem/router combo) > XR500 > All devices? Normally when you have double NAT you need to put the XR500 into DMZ on your modem. I have moved this to the correct section. Please don’t post on the 1 on 1 section unless asked to do so by Netduma staff. Thanks.

    Hosts outside filter

    Thats a host that you have added to your allow list. You can tell this as it has a solid circle around it. You may also sometimes see whitelisted authentication servers outside your radius, these also have a solid white circle around them but have the server icon in the middle.

    The server you see outside your radius is a whitelisted authentication server you aren’t actually playing a game on that server. Games need authentication servers to connect you to online services so it’s vital they are whitelisted. A whitelisted server has a solid circle around it. The server inside your radius is the one you are playing a game on. As you are using ping assist (ping assist servers have a dashed circle around them) you may sometimes see servers outside the geofilter radius, these servers are incorrectly located in the Netduma cloud database and even though they may appear outside your radius you will have a low ping to them.

    errors spam

    The logs are really only for developers to use. Don’t pay to much attention to them. I’ve posted an excerpt from @Netduma Jack about logs. “logs are for developers to look over in specific situations. Every router in the world would show these kinds of events if they too had log files. Most routers don't show you this information for this reason - it can be misinterpreted’

    ERROR - The lobby is not joinable

    It will be available on all routers but Netgear control the timings for XR500/XR700

    Wifi distance for my big house

    The Nighthawk has far better WiFi range than the R1, many of us use a second router connected to the R1 and set in access point mode to extend the WiFi range of the R1 so that is also an option for you.

    Update status

    Netduma have already said that they won’t be giving out timeframes for updates/new features.
  13. 80 down is the maximum you will get from WiFi on the R1 due to hardware limitations. The best way to get higher wifi speeds is to have another 5GHz router (set in access point mode) connected to the R1. This is a setup many of us use to get better WiFi performance.

    Unable to acces the r1 interface

    You need to type ifconfig on a Mac
  15. Great plot for a powerline adapter BD! I find my powerline adapters give me the odd spike here and there, far better than gaming on WiFi though. What powerline adapters do you use?
