  1. Any updates on this? Thanks
  2. and the XBOX is showing connected to the LAN even though I unplug the Ethernet cord from the console and sometimes will also get stuck offline and if it does not recognize the gaming console. What is the point of a "professional gaming router"?
  3. Thanks for the info killhippie I have seen you on some other posts comparing the two. At first I did notice the XR500 range and speeds seemed better but after multiple back and forth testing it has been really all over the map for both routers. I agree with you on pretty much every thing else and I do want to stick with the XR500 but when the device manager does not recognize devices and there for does not add them to the network monitor. I have to question if the router is even working efficiently as it should or the whole thing is a show. Here is my screen at the moment showing the PC I am on right now showing as offline and does not show any traffic on network monitor even if I use it to use a lot of bandwidth. Maybe I should just drop Netgear all together. Asus?
  4. Network Monitor: Yes, when the device shows offline there is nothing for it in network monitor, but how can you be sure of the accuracy or if network monitoring is even working when it can't even ID all the devices using bandwidth? PUBG: People say there multiple servers but it only connects me to Virginia. If Virginia is not in the filter I will never get into a game, then I can put a 50 mile radius on Virginia and it connects me. I realize this has nothing to do with NetDuma. Can QoS, Anti-Bufferbloat, or traffic prioritization actually make gaming worse or slower? It seems like it operates better with all these off, I usually have traffic prioritization always on by default but don't really notice a difference. I think what I am going to do is run a test with the network just saturated and try to play some games and see I can notice a difference. Is there any known bugs with device managers that IT is aware of any working on? I feel like I am noticing problems that IT is not aware of. Any firmware updates coming? Would like to stay with the DumaOS but the way it is operating at the moment I am thinking I rather have the cash in my pocket.
  5. Thanks Fraser, that is what I figured but one has to go back and the DumaOS software does not work. The device manager does not recognize the devices so it does not list them in the network monitor. My QoS is disabled, because it slows down my speeds and was basically told with my speeds makes sense to turn it off. Geo-Filter is off because PUBG only has one server in Virginia and GOW4 does regional filtering. I do like the look a lot better but I am having trouble justifying the difference for the software.
  6. So I just purchased the Nighthawk X4S 2600 7800 and from what I can tell is this is the same exact hardware for $120 less. Am I missing something or is this the same hardware with the DumaOS?

    Yes, If you reboot the modem it works correctly for about a day then gets stuck in offline. Device manager does NOT work

    Device Manager NOT Working

    24hrs later I am on the XBOX and same issue it is showing the XBOX offline,
  10. Changed the channel went up to around 40-50 Mbps but still seems slow when my connected speeds are around 300. I also replaced the R1 with this one one of the reasons being the WiFi was supposedly slow and 50Mbps was the same speed I was getting on the R1. Also came home today and for the last hour the internet on the LAN is gone now. just no internet flowing though the LAN. Was working fine last night, any ideas on this now new issue?
  11. Came home for lunch popped on the XBOX and it wont connect to the internet, Via Ethernet. Was working fine last night. Both WiFi signals are on and the port lights for the ethernet are all lighting up but no internet flowing to the LAN. Unreal!

    Answer your question no just an Arris modem SB6190. By HUB I am talking about the modem.

    Device Manager NOT Working

    I think I fixed the device manager issue by unplugging everything > Power cycling the HUB which gave me a new WAN IP address > attaching the router and powering it up again. It seems to be back on real time as I connect and disconnect devices. I will let you know if this changes, may have screwed things up by factory restarting the router and having it connected to the HUB or something.
  14. Sorry about the multiple posts I think I fixed the device manager issue by unplugging everything > Power cycling the HUB which gave me a new WAN IP address > attaching the router and powering it up again. It seems to be back on real time as I connect and disconnect devices. I will let you know if this changes, may have screwed things up by factory restarting the router and having it connected to the HUB or something. As far as PUBG I know its not your fault if they lock me into servers in Virginia I have posted about this on the PUBG forum to no avail they say the are on the Azure servers which has locations in Ohio and Northern Illinois but it never connects to them ever. I have attached my speed tests to show you the 2.4Ghz is absolutely awful in my home not sure whats interfering with it or if there is a setting but this can't be correct also when it was on smartconnect it was choosing the 2.4 which does not seem to smart to me. Ethernet 5.0 Ghz 2.4Ghz

    First there is NO LAN at all at the moment (see above) and If there is no data how i'm I typing right now and its not showing at all? When I am playing XBOX online it says its offline. I'm sorry this simply is not correct and is not helpful at all. device manager port table may be slightly off if you have one of the routers where the ports on the hardware itself were mislabeled?? What does this mean? What do you mean by one of the routers? I have a modem plugged into the internet port and an ethernet cord plugged into port 1 Smart connect is disabled because my wifes pc was getting 25Mbps on a 300 service 5.0 was way faster.
