    QoS sliders have zero effect

    Fraser I don't use wifi on the XR500 and didn't on the R1. My network design has been in place this way for a very long time and things functioned as they should. I can turn wifi on if that's going to be the nail this TS hangs on. However, it has nothing to do with my situation since I expect the function to work across the router on Gigabit wired. After all it's a gaming router and "...no gamer worth his XXXXX, games over wifi..."<humor>

    QoS sliders have zero effect

    I'm not sure what to say so that you can comprehend. My network is a moot point since the issue persists with ONLY the netduma and ONLY one PC as previously stated twice now. If you must know. It's the ISP device in bridge mode> XR500> PC =port 2 Router2=port 3. All other devices behind Router2. The reasoning is my house has PoE cams and wifi APs. Not sure how much more clear I can be. It's a pretty basic setup. Basically XR500 is the first device handed an IP from ISP bridge mode modem. From there the PC and Router 2 are on one subnet and everything else is behind Router2 on an entirely different subnet. Basic. I am well aware of how the device is suppsoed to function and work. I have been around off and on since 2015?. *Sigh* I wish people were as quick to read and comprehend as they were to spew out the same info over and over.... rinse repeat. Thanks for the help but if it's of no help...

    QoS sliders have zero effect

    Technically all the devices are going through the Xr500. The Xr500 recognizes the other router as just another network device and will handle QoS per norm still allowing my gaming PC to take advantage of the QoS and priority over all other devices connected to the other router downstream. However, as stated above, the problem still exists with that router and the devices behind it unplugged. This wasn't the case before these issues appeared after the recent update. I have performed an reset and update this evening with the same results ONLY with my PC plugged in. I can unplug my ISP router and go straight to my PC and everything is fine. I have tried all of the things you've suggested with no change. I think I am ready to throw the towel in. I received this device after 6 months of troubleshooting with Netgear directly over issue with my first Xr500 that they could reproduce but not correct so they rolled the dice by giving me another router. Guess I'll wait until duma 3.0. It's close but just not quite there yet.

    QoS sliders have zero effect

    OK this is getting weird. I have everything unplugged but the ISP modem>netduma>PC and if I set the sliders to 50% I get exactly 25Mbps down so that started working after waiting for 5 minutes (??) But now, my upstream, is whacked... I can't get more than 2Mbps upload without massive spikes in bufferbloat. I can unplug the netduma and go straight into my PC and the bufferbloat is good, A+, even at full speed. 53/11 WTF is going on here? Also another thing, on the sliders, if I move them from say 100% to 75% no matter how long I wait it does nothing. I still get same speeds and full speeds, but If I move it lower than 50% it works. This router is driving me insane, everywhere you turn there is some weird out of nowhere issue or caveat. OK for simplicity sake here are my settings in QoS. detected speeds 53/11 options GOODPUT OFF, tried with ON no change sliders set at 80% Anti-bufferbloat settings ALWAYS , tried only when...detected Share excess is always ON
  5. I was noticing a difference to my connection and I went to bufferbloat test just for initial testing and found that no matter what settings I use for anti bufferbloat it does not change my speed whatsoever. Where should I start? 50/10 connection tests at 53/11 with crap bufferbloat on upstream only. I generally set the device so that I am at 48/8 and I get all A's. XR500 Latest firmware No IPv6 ISP ->DHCP IPv4 All traffic is routed thru XR500. I have 2 devices, my PC and another router handling my other devices on their own subnet

    Still can't find a blackout lobby on PC

    yes but with the requirement to add the device as an xbox and then losing the feature to do not/d VPN these services....

    2 questions about ping & throttling

    1.) That is the difference between network ping and in-game latency. The packets will have added delay from the game. Most games it's around 10ms difference with bo4 it is about 20ms difference. 2.) throttling somehow puts you in a worst case lobby search and pairs you with players with shitty connections and p2p I believe.

    This is incorrect. If I go to device manager and change my gaming PC to an XBOX I lose ALL ability to make any changes within hybrid VPN choices for devices. I cannot add ports since the option is now "greyed" out I have tried it inifinite times and yes removed the device and added it back and reset and rebooot. If my pc or I imagine any device is added as XBOX as you suggested I now have zero options on services within hybrid VPN. Are we running two different versions of the f/w? I'm on latest.

    PIA advanced setup

    I copied and pasted from this thread and BD's post. There isn't much to this, it's not rocket science, so... not sure what I could mess up. Select advanced setup, input username, input password, copy then paste open VPN script forom this post. Works on XR500, does NOT work with R1. Come on man username and password? I've tried that and also stated previously I have copied it and pasted it form the account settings.

    The DENY as well as the fact that when you add the PC as a console as you suggest I lose then the ability to then utilize the DO/DO NOT VPN in Hybrid VPN.
  11. Under Services can you add Netflix to your code? So that I can vpn a tv device for shows(Titanium,Kodi...etc) I want to VPN vs. blocking Netflix on the same device and getting an error. # netflix route 108.175.32.0 255.255.240.0 net_gateway route 208.75.76.0 255.255.252.0 net_gateway route 64.212.0.0 255.252.0.0 net_gateway route 199.92.0.0 255.252.0.0 net_gateway route 206.32.0.0 255.252.0.0 net_gateway route 209.244.0.0 255.252.0.0 net_gateway route 68.142.64.0 255.255.192.0 net_gateway route 69.28.128.0 255.255.192.0 net_gateway route 69.164.0.0 255.255.192.0 net_gateway route 208.111.128.0 255.255.192.0 net_gateway route 128.242.0.0 255.255.0.0 net_gateway route 204.0.0.0 255.252.0.0 net_gateway route 204.141.0.0 255.255.0.0 net_gateway route 204.200.0.0 255.252.0.0 net_gateway route 208.44.0.0 255.252.0.0 net_gateway
  12. Custom VPN services. I'd like to see an addition to allow our own custom Services so I can create a profile for say Netflix to bypass VPN so it won't error out or my CoD ports to bypass etc. Create it under one item vs. having 15 ports to bypass/service in advanced. Or allow us to bypass by domain.

    There is no log or anything. Just says failed.

    PIA advanced setup

    Sorry it took so long to get back. I can confirm that the latest version of XR500 firmware works fine with this VPN account and Advanced setup config. The latest version of the R1 firmware does NOT.

    Still can't find a blackout lobby on PC

    This is still not working. Is Netduma not supported for BO4 PC?
