  1. What’s the benefit, if any, to adjusting the bandwidth allocation petals versus the sliders? The most activity that’s going on while I’m playing is maybe my wife using FB off WiFi. Is there any reason to mess with the petals? I’ve heard some people “unticking” share excess, then adjusting the petals instead of CC sliders. Is there any difference as far as better bufferbloat control using one versus the other? Thanks!

    Sliders set to 100 up & down!?

    Feel mostly......but watching PingPlotter, the graph is just as smooth if not smoother (less jitter) with the sliders at 100. This is consistent with both BO4 & WW2. Definitely NOT complaining but just trying to understand. Lol 😂

    Sliders set to 100 up & down!?

    The only thing else that’s going on is my wife using WiFi at most, scrolling through FB. I’ve gone back & forth between all different slider settings & even when DSL Reports show pretty ideal bars (under the “results” page), it doesn’t seem to positively impact my play. I’m monitoring PingPlotter as I’m playing & it’s within 2ms within the 10min graphs with sliders at 100....again just as good if not better than any congestion control applied. Laptop hardwired to duma of course. Is it possible in some cases that throttling could hamper performance if not needed?

    Sliders set to 100 up & down!?

    Hey all, ive got the original R1/original firmware (no dumaos) & was fiddling with settings ever since playing for months. I mostly used the 70/70.......is it odd that ever since I tried both up & down sliders set to 100, that I’ve been having amazing gameplay??? It’s not placebo either since it’s been an accumulation of days, different times, hours & countless rooms/hosts. Seems like just the Geo-Filter is what counts most for me at least....been getting 12-14ms for both BO4 & WW2.

    Geo-Filter Question.....

    We’ll let you slide this time since you were helping a needy person! Lol 😂

    Geo-Filter Question.....

    Yes, the original R1 firmware.

    Geo-Filter Question.....

    So, just uncheck the cloud box & recheck it?
  8. Hey all, when playing WW2 last night, I seemed to be getting thrown all around to different servers with 40-50+ ping no matter what I did......distance was plenty (1700+ miles), ping assist set to 30ms, home location set to “round about” where I live on map (Texas). Tried strict mode on & off along with unchecking & re-checking the “enable” host filtering box. Even rebooted once. The gameplay wasn’t bad but doesn’t seem to be working right? thanks!

    Best Ethernet cable??

    Cool, I’m thinking about going Cat 6 for sure but the more I read about the STP, the more I may stick with the UTP version. There’s a lot of talk about having to properly ground that style due to the shielding & if not done properly can cause more issues. Is the STP not grounded within the cable or is it something that has to be done in addition to? Seems like going with just plain ole cat6 as short as possible may be the way to go.....from the modem to duma, and duma to Xbox. I think the one duma sends is a cat5e.

    Do the 5e come in STP?

    Best Ethernet cable??

    Cool, yea just trying to get the most out of it. So if cat6 is a cleaner signal, may be worth it.

    Best Ethernet cable??

    Hey all, im running cat5e cables at the moment between modem/duma/Xbox......I’ve heard that cat6 STP cables are better? Less noise due to the shielding versus the UTP? Will it improve my gaming? Thanks so much!

    PingPlotter check??

    This is what I got today with sliders 30 down / 75 up. Seems stable? How do I know what servers I’m supposed to ping since it’s customizable? I’m in TX but it automatically only pinged CO & GA. Not sure how I should set that up.

    PingPlotter check??

    Yes, just trying to replicate gaming so I can get the best hit detection, etc. so whatever’s the best method. Its all a learning curve for sure.....just feel like I’m not getting the same results you all are getting & that I’m missing something. Lol

    PingPlotter check??

    Yes, I’ve been using that and have a heck of a time getting them level......my download I can get a difference of like 3ms (from bottom to top of red bar) but I struggle with the upload. Seems like no matter where I put my congestion control bars, I can never get the bars level between all three and/or smooth upload. I was thinking I read on the forums that people are actually using PingPlotter as the bufferbloat tool instead of DSL.......but just running the DSL to tax the line while watching the PingPlotter graph? Guessing this is more accurate? I have the original R1 firmware, no dumaos yet.
