  1. Hey Fraser! I will give that a try tonight and report back. I was always wondering what flush the cloud meant or did ha ha. I will give it a go! Thanks again my friend!
  2. Thanks pollutionblues! If it is normal to see them outside my search radius is it also normal for me to connect to that server for a game? Currently that is what is happening which is unfortunate.. If you have any ideas im all ears! Thanks my friend! :) Zippy.
  3. Thank you for your reply. I haven not manually allowed them to my list. Also the strange thing is when I do connect to that server that is outside my search radius it doesn't give me ping readings or ID's. And that is with Auto Ping enabled. Have any ideas how I could get the ID's for you? It only happens when I connect to the Chicago IL server. Which is the server just outside my search radius.. The sad thing is if it wasn't for the server in Chicago IL I really wouldn't even need to use the Geo Filter because the rest of the servers perform quite well for me. Again thanks for your time! Zippy. p.s. Thanks about the nice wallpaper!
  4. Here's another screen shot of the Geo Filter putting me on a server outside my search radius..
  5. Now this is when things really get ugly.. Here is PingPlotter running pinging google while im playing a game using the RX500.. My next test will be taking the router out of the mix and going directly to the modem.. These screen shots are with the router. Im getting a lot of packet loss just about everywhere..
  6. Here are a few screen shots of my setup in the Geo Filter.
  7. Thank you for the reply. I will take a few screen shots and post back here.. Am I suppose to be zoomed in? I live in the US and there is two servers really close to each other. Ones in Iowa and the other in Chicago IL. So I was wonder because they were so close might be the cause. The sad part is the one server which is the Chicago IL gives me the best pings but also has very severe lag spikes. Any other server I hit is much more consistent in the US. So I have been trying to block the Chicago IL server. I actually had reached out to Josh from 343 and he explained to me what takes place when a lag spike is detected on there server hosting there game. He explained that when a lag spike is detected ones upload speed is throttled down to about nothing and slowly brought back up until another lag spike is detected. Which I found very interesting.. At least it explains why when I hit that server the game performed very poor for me.. As for UPnP I do have an Open Nat on my Xbox One. I just found it strange that I never would see any other ports in the pooling list other then 3074 UDP.. My network setup is cable modem to the XR500 thats it nothing else is connected between the two.. But to be fair with all the issues a lot of cable modems are having I sometimes wonder if I have a bad modem. And that it might also be the cause to some of these lag spikes and possible effecting the geo filter.. Most of the big cable providers around here have issues they are still sorting out with the DOCSIS 3.1. It hasn't gone as smooth as they would have liked.. Again thank you for your time I greatly appreciate it.. If you have any suggestions im all ears. I will post a few screen shots tonight.. Thanks again! Zippy.
  8. Hello everyone! Ive been having some strange things happen while playing Halo5. With the geo filter enabled and set to strict everything works as it should. But after about 5 games or so the filter seems to quit working. Then I start to make connections to servers outside my filter range. Its very strange. I also have other issues.. When I had my ASUS router hooked up it would tell me what ports info was being sent and received on. The XR500 only shows 3074 UDP. Is this normal? Im just wondering why I don't see other ports other than the 3074 UDP. With my ASUS I would see other ports pop in like the ones XBOX Live would show.. This maybe no big deal but found this strange as well. I am currently using UPnP. Should I be port forwarding ports instead on my XR500 over UPnP? Once in awhile while playing a game I will notice the game played very odd. When I looked the UPnP showed nothing. So I was wondering if UPnP had quit working as well.. I am running on the most current firmware for the XR500. And maybe I have something set wrong. Which is very possible. Just wanted to get some thoughts what might be going on. If any other info is needed just let me know. Thanks everyone! I do love this Netduma OS. Zippy.

    Hello Everyone!

    Thanks for the nice welcome! And your welcome! ha ha.. What do you mean now DumaOS is out on all platforms? I really do like what you guys have done so far.. Im very glad I got the XR500. My only mistake was not getting it sooner. My other router which is a ASUS ROG Rapture GT AC5300 wasn't to shabby. Love there hardware but there software was for a better word horrible. Cant wait to see what new features you guys have up your sleeve! Im excited! Thanks again for the welcome to the forum! Zippy.

    Hello Everyone!

    Thanks TrayDay for the welcome to the forum! Greatly appreciate it. Im not going to lie.. Ive got caught up in some of those so called routers that have claimed to be geared towards gaming.. But Netduma is totally different. Ive visited here watching for a very longtime and I kept saying to myself these guys are for real!! Finally one day I pulled the trigger.. I had the XR500 in my hands about a hand full of times thinking should I buy it or not.. Then I finally just grabbed it and went on my way! It is no doubt in my mind the router to have if your a gamer.. I haven't seen any other OS like Netduma. Its second to none.. Again thanks for stopping in to say Hello! Its good to be a part of this Duma Army! Cheers Tray! Zippy.

    Hello Everyone!

    Netduma Jack your welcome! I do believe that Netduma OS is just the beginning. Many more good things will happen. There is no doubt as far as im concerned they are the cutting edge when it comes to OS geared for gamers. Ive seen a lot of gimmicks over time clamming to have a gaming router and it really was nothing more then talk then proof.. Netduma has a bright future. Even some of my Tech forums I visit often have taken notice.. That alone says a lot. There is a feature I have a question on and I see a few always asking about it. That is ping assist... What exactly is that and what does that actually do? Anyways thanks again for the warm welcome.. You will see me around. :) (soon in the support forum). Zippy.

I really do like what I have seen thus far out of the Netduma OS. even though im having issues. Its really the first time ive seen so much focus on a OS that is targeted for gamers. Well done! Thanks again and hope to chat more with you all. :)
