  1. Hey thanks for the reply!! This is almost to good to be true!! I must be dreaming!! Looks like Xmas came early this year. lol..
  2. I cant wait to get home and update my XR500.. Has anyone had the chance or noticed if the feature to show Tick Rate of a server is present?

    bad line?

    scbba do you have to have a combo unit modem that runs both internet and telephone in one? Can you have one modem for telephone and one modem for internet? I have Spectrum and that's my set up. Two different modems. Not sure if that's an option or not for you but thought id share that.. In your area are you running on DOCSIS 3.1 now?

    I totally agree with you Jack. He has done the right thing. To be honest more have to do this then just taking things as acceptable.. One of the things ive noticed over the years here in the US is that ISP's are starting to get very sloppy when it comes to latency. And there reply is very commonly called "acceptable". There trying to cram 6 gallons into a 5 gallon bucket. First thing to go out the window is latency.. We use to own the cable company here where I live but have sold out to Spectrum awhile ago. We still to this day help them pin point issues.. And one thing that sticks out to me is how very little knowledge they have in using there own testing equipment or misinterpreting there results.. About two weeks ago I gave 101 class to a line tech on what his meters readings meant. While he thought things were normal I showed him that they were not.. Which is strange because it had logged warnings a mile long.. He asked me what those meant and I told him that the latency variation was way out of spec. So as you can see its very easy for things to get sloppy when even the techs are still learning..
  5. Phyter my fingers are crossed for you! I do wish you luck. And keep us posted on any new info. Im surprised that WOW doesn't want to resolve this directly with you. I do think in your case you did what you had to do. Lets hope this moves fairly quick for you. Good luck!
  6. Have you taken your modem and connect it directly to the main line coming into your home and test from there using ping plotter? Connect your modem on the maim feeder line.. I think you have mentioned you have fiber out at the curb and copper to home.. My guess is you have RJ6 coming into your home. Make sure your connector is tight at the modem and not just finger tight. See if your results are any better testing there..
  7. I think your correct Jack. I know the population likely has caused this so I think one just gets shifted around to find a game. I am very curious and excited for the next new firmware for the XR500. I cant wait for that!

    Phyter, Not sure if you tried this or not yet but have you taken your modem and directly connected it to the main line coming into your house? That would mean taking your modem and lab top to the location where the line comes into your home and hook the modem directly into the main line without going through any splitters. Then do some tests from there. See what you get there and post back here. This will help to make sure this isn't a splitter or something else back feeding into your line with in your home. You shouldn't have to test long. Good luck!
  9. Hey Fraser, You are very correct that they have changed something with H5. For some odd reason this change seemed to have happened at about the same time they moved the MCC from p2p to the same dedicated servers as H5. Not sure if at that time they did something to H5 then but I thought it was a very strange coincidence. Also one can not quit when in game.. If one dashboards or just plain out quits its banhammer time! They have that set very very strict.. Unfortunately about the time one can even ping a server or have a chance to ping the server one gets its already to late. If one does quit or dashboard twice and then on the third try gets into a game after that game you will be banned. Another big change also is that they no longer have one authenticating server. Those now seem to rotate and every location can become a authenticating server. Which means it does no good to block them or have them outside of your radius. Something tells me they did this because of Netduma and wants it to be fair for everyone.. To be fair that last part may seem to be a bit of a stretch but again I find it very strange this has taken place and wouldn't know the reason behind it other then to make it fair for everyone. It just seems strange that the more 343 messes with there networking the less and less Duma OS is effective.. Currently there is nothing in the Geo filter that works for me.. All I can do is watch and see my pings which even at times those don't even work when on Auto ping.. Most of the time they quit working all together. Im also currently using the XR500. But again this router is extremely buggy for me. Have had a lot of very strange issues with it. Hoping the next firmware update will correct these many strange issues.. Netgear hasn't been any help.. And I refuse to pay for support on a router that is just a few months old specially when it was there firmware upgrade that has caused my issues..
  10. No worries Jack.. I can understand that things like this do take time. Im sure over time things will smooth out and gel much better between both Netduma and Netgear. And trust me I want Netduma to succeed in everyway possible. Ive noticed that some that make third party firmware are even watching what Netduma is doing.. They have taken notice. Most of your big box router companies make awesome hardware. Its usually there firmware/software that is problematic.. So that is why I think Netduma and Netgear make a good match.. Specially for us gamers.. 👍 Thanks for your reply!
  11. I also have the same problem as the Op. Which when I say is really unfortunate is an understatement.. I sure hope Netgear pushes out this firmware a lot sooner then later. Im definitely having second thoughts about this router..

    Urgent * Turn Off IPV6 *

    I think Netduma has stated before that IPv6 doesn't go through there QoS. Only IPv4 does if I recall correctly. As far as lag spikes are concerned using IPv6 makes sense because if you have IPv6 enabled those packets are being filtered and that for sure will cause lag spikes as well. Not to mention not having any QoS also on the IPv6 side. I know one may think there is no problem but there is an issue. Its basically just hidden by having IPv6 disabled. Sooner or later IPv6 will be a thing. The question is will Netgear actually fix this.. Xbox is really pushing for everyone to use IPv6. I noticed that my XR500 doesn't even have a Native IPv6 option. Which I sure hope they add. ASUS had this along while back. I do wish I could load Duma OS on my ASUS..lol. Id do it in a heart beat!

    pingplotter help needed

    That dsl reports test shows that his modem had failed. Basically what that test does is send small tcp requests and what the test looks for is consistency in latency in those requests. Everything look good until boom! The very end of the test shows a 750ms variation. When I see that from others that have posted there results they look very much like this one.. Looks like a puma6 chipset footprint to me..

    My connection with the XR500

    I agree with Netduma Jack.. Those are the easiest things to try first. By looking at the ping graph I would say you have something going on. The thing is with cable providers is coaxial cable is highly influenced by interference from a vast amount of things. Some additional things to look at are to make sure your connectors are tight. Also make sure your modem is either not on a splitter or at the very least its on only one. Again make sure all connections are tight. If you find that everything looks good and have done just about everything you can then I would look at the modem. But at that point I would have my ISP come and do a full line check. They can put a good load test on your line and that will tell you a lot. Once you know this info then you will have a good idea what the issue is and can narrow it down from there.. Good luck!
