  1. Anytime I have my XR500 router connected, everything as far as internet works fine. Getting into Black Ops 4 works fine. Open NAT on Xbox and in Black Ops 4. But once I try to start a game it boots me out. Not super technical. But if I take the Geo filter and move it from 400mi to 1200mi it doesn’t make a difference, can’t connect to a game. But if I delete the device I’m filtering (Xbox one) it works fine. I may be doing something incorrect but I don’t think I am. Any help would be great. Thanks
  2. Hey all a bit of a long post but bare with me got the R1 years ago and loved it worked great and decided to upgrade to the XR 500 in the last month and have had nothing but headaches with it. Been playing black ops 4 with friends and have been kicked from parties/disbands us when searching for a game and when we finally do get a game it is peer connection not dedicated servers and the connection is bad i put my geo-filter to 1500 mi and that covers a lot of europe i know there are 2-3 dedicated servers in the circle have my anti-bufferbloat 70/70 and have it set to always. I also have the same problem with playing Fortnite with friends any help you can give would be much appreciated. Many Thanks Ben
  3. How about give us an option to where we can change the username Login instead of using "admin" Like to whatever we want the username to be, that would be a nice option. 😃
  4. OK I think we can finally say we got the ball rolling @Netduma Fraser I was giving up hope for the second time on a second xr500. Last night while reading up on factory reset I stumbled upon the actual method of clicking erase within the router not just holding in the button on back. I did this and for the first time the router logged my speeds on both download and upload. It still says failed to detect bandwidth but I hope it will be explained by netgear as to why or if it will be fixed later on. Aside from this on the geo filter when nobody is playing a game what is this server looking symbol right where I live? It always pops on and off?
  5. Hey Guys, Was thinking with 'hybrid vpn' coming (hopefully!), might be good to get notifications etc that your VPN has disconnected/reconnected. The push notification can be for more than just for the VPN like a notification for when your internet comes back online too etc. Just an idea
  6. I have been using buffer-bloat set to automatic when high priority traffic is detected and its been working great. My only problem is that when i download a torrent it detects it as high priority limiting the amount of download bandwidth it can grab. In most cases when i start a torrent i want it to take all my bandwidth so this has become a problem for me. I made sure that the custom ports i set up for high priority didn't match the port setting of the torrent client but the problem still persists. turning off anti buffer-bloat every time i start a torrent is something id like to avoid. Is there any way to stop the torrent client from being read as high priority?

    TWiT tv reviews the XR500

    Just trawling through youtubeland and came across this. Twit is a fantastic tech channel which I have watched for years. Saw their review of the XR500 and felt it belonged on this forum
  8. I just bought the xr500 and was hoping to fix bufferbloat on my slow connection (3mbps down 0.32mbps up) I get a score of F without enabled, and a C or D with it enabled. While it has helped some with the score, still not fully helping the situation. Is there some connections that just will not receive an A for bufferbloat? Ping using speedtest typically is 16 to the nearest server so ping is not the issue. Has to be overloading somehow. And before anyone says upgrade your speed, that is out of the question. No other options are in my area and no speed upgrades available. Any help would be great! Thanks, VitalNotion
  9. Well this issue is still ongoing, doing a speedtest on the pS4 it takes almost 20 seconds to determine the Nat type. This triggers the "the router in use may not support ip packet fragmentation, some ps4 features may not be available" Looking on Netgear support i have noticed someone else with this issue too, its a real pain as earlier firmware versions did not have this issue, and I have seen a few people on here having the same issue. https://community.netgear.com/t5/Nighthawk-Pro-Gaming-Routers/xr500-ip-fragmentation-ps4/m-p/1655146#M4819
  10. Hey All, Not sure if this is of any interest to anyone but I wouldn't mind a bit of link aggregation going on through this router 😁 Not sure if the ASIC('s?) can handle it or not also. Cheers!
  11. Hey Guys, Would be really great if we could get modem stats shown in the router e.g SNR, uptime, max attainable speeds, current speeds, input / output statistics etc. Cheers!
  12. I know that Netgear and Asus will show the router temperatures on their firmwares, while some even include fan controls. It would be great if we could have those same temperature indications and fan controls added to DumaOS.
  13. As soon as i got my xr500 i went ahead and updated to latest firmware which is currently v2.3.2.32. I managed to set up anti-bufferbloat and bandwidth allocation and its working wonders ! (props to netduma team ! ) the only problem is that i want to run it when it recognizes game traffic but the red light wont light up when i launch league of legends even though DumaOS Classified Games is set to enabled and even when a a custom rule is set for the the pc playing it. I also tried adding the manual lol ports but i keep receiving an error message: RPC error 'ERROR_UNKNOWN': bad argument #1 to 'len' (string expected, got nil) -> stack traceback: ?: in function <?:73> [C]: in function 'len' ?: in function '?' ?: in function 'decode' ?: in function <?:50> (tail call): ? ?: in function <?:324> [C]: in function 'xpcall' ?: in function 'try' ?: in function <?:290> [C]: in function 'run' ?: in function <?:345> [C]: in function 'xpcall' ?: in function 'try' ?: in function <?:261> (tail call): ? /dumaos/api/cli.lua:48: in function </dumaos/api/cli.lua:30> [C]: in function 'xpcall' /dumaos/api/cli.lua:59: in main chunk [C]: ? I tried playing Overwatch and it gets recognized immediately working as it should. So question is, why is league of legends not being detected and why cant i add the ports manually? any help would be appreciated since league is the main game i play everything else is prefect Overclocked

    CAT 6 to CAT 7 JITTER BYE BYE

    seem to have found a way to completely eliminate jitter for good, when I was running CAT 6 cables not 6A, even with anti-bufferbloat enabled set correctly I was still running into jitter on ping plotter, noticeable difference for gaming to, either was hit or miss, like always for me pinging twitter still gives jitter, but google straight as a arrow with CAT 7 Tera Grand from fiber Modem to XR500, and for the ps4, and my PC here is some screen shots down below.
  15. Well I bit the bullet and I am giving the Xr500 another chance. If I put the PS4 in the DMZ will the router still do what it is intended to do with the anti bufferbloat and QOS prioritization settings? Or does the DMZ override all that? I will work with you guys and see if I can actually enjoy everything this has to offer along with enjoying my games!
  16. I would take a big guess why the new firmware upgrade for the XR500 (VPN, ping assist...) is not (and will not be) available yet. With the new XR700 coming soon I think and it's entirely up to me that you don't have the permission to release it before launch of the new router. I say that because on the advertising they mention the new VPN feature as you can see on the image I took on Amazon. So it make sense that you release this firmware after October 19th and we have to wait more than 1 month again without any beta testing. If I'm right I d'ont understand why you're not telling us the whole story and if I'm wrong I would love to upgrade to the XR700 🙂
  17. Hello, I just installed the Nighthawk XR500 router in my home. I have an ISP modem (sky sr102) and nothing except the xr500 is connected to it. All devices in house connect to xr500. My Xbox one X is connected via cable to xr500 and NAT is open as I set my xr500 as a DMZ server in my ISP router and XBOX has static IP. My group filter is not working and the screen shows no hosts on the map when I'm playing games like Destiny or GTA. XBOX device is listed as XBOX in devices. Geo filtering is set to spectate, profile is set to Destiny and yet I don't see any remote hosts or ping detials. The screen just remain blank. I am using Chrome browser also on a Mac so no issues with browser. I have the latest firmware as the router installed it automatically yesterday. Please can you help with the configuration of geo filtering and let me know why it isn't working?
  18. Hi All, Was wandering if there will ever be a software update to include dhcp option 60 & 61. I use Sky fibre unlimited, brought the xr500 and two different modems (Netgear DM200 & Draytek Vigor 130), neither will work due to the lacking of being able to send option 60 & 61 from the router. Now I am buggered, I dont wan’t to add more layers of devices to get this working. Thanks
  19. Destiny 2 was really laggy and hit detection took 1-2 seconds to register until i got the xr500 check out this game play. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7lgjvRx6CbI&t=164s My setup Monitor: RL2460ht BenQ Console: Ps4 Pro Sound: Astro A40 control: SCUF with custom metal body/buttons/paddle(in case i throw at wall) Netduma Settings: ISP: Bell Canada, add console IP to modem/routers DMZ settings, turn off modem routers wifi with DMZ and HDCP being the only things enabled disable everything else(disable UPNP), then make sure every device is connected to the XR500. Geo Filter device: Add console, and use destiny 2 profile(keep lowering the distance if you find games laggy) Anti buffer bloat: Set correct internet speed, set to when high priority is detected so that internet speeds are normal when not gaming, set download to 70% and upload to 86% Bandwidth allocation: Share excess enabled on both download and upload and give your console 30% download and 30% upload. Traffic prioritization: Keep dumaOS classified games checked(you do not have to manually prioritize your console). Advanced settings UPNP: enabled(If you are using than 2 consoles and you find that both do not have open Nat, set Nat filtering to open) Lan setup: put consoles IP under address reservation. Settings USB storage: uncheck enable media server. Ps4Pro Settings: Resolution: Automatic RGB: Full HDR: off Deep color: off Display area: smallest System settings: boost mode on and leave everything else to default Ps4 network settings: Auto Monitor Settings: look for game mode on your tv/screen and if you have an option for response time set it to fastest. Thought i would help people with their destiny 2 settings since forsaken is just around the corner. If you are in the Toronto/ New york area add me on psn or join my clan and we should play games together.
  20. I have this router for 4 months now. I love it. So far I have 1 issues with it. At the beginning it was fine. Ever since I did last 2 update my ping increase I dont know why. My base ping is 14 and Im getting 34 in game sometime 50. It's not stable . It goes up and down. When i first got this router my ping was around 17ms and 20ms. I did alot of research to see what a doing on but couldn't find any. I hope I can find the solution in here. And one more thing when I directly plug the modem to my ps4 I get 17 ms ping . Very solid never go up and down but when I put xr500 it goes up and I close to the game server too. My download is 1Gigs Upload 40 Slider 70/70 Anti budferbloat set to "always" Bandwidth allocation Download "20 percent", upload "20 percent" I have media server disable, and wifi completely off from router. Using straight wired. Traffic prioritization enable
  21. I recently bought an XR500 and after following the community for a few weeks, I see that hybrid VPN is still waiting to be greenlit by Netgear. Do you have an ETA on the hybrid VPN feature, or at least a beta version that is planned to be released? If so, how can users partake in a beta (e.g. replying to a forum post)?
  22. Hi, been reading the forums for several months now. Big fan of Fraser and always trying to learn as much as I can. Question about the dashboard.. Is there a limit to how much I can pin and if so could "over pinning" affect the routers performance? I love the dashboard and I like to have a fair amount of things pinned but I don't want to cause issus. Thanks in advance.
  23. hi guys Got my new XR500 yesterday and love the product! My question is on the bufferbloat side especially on the upload side. i have done multiple tests on DSL Reports (uk) i can control my download buffer but my uplaod buffer is really bad my idle is 12ms to 15ms download i can get 15-20ms and upload is 20-140ms ive tried the sliders at every possible percentage but i i can not control my bufferbloat on the upload. i tried pingplotter and nothing is wrong with my network. i have the R1 and i can control everything. idle is the same download is 12-15 and upload is 12-15 aswell? i have tried the "always on" and turned it off but nothing is working? can you assist me in this matter? kind regards john
  24. last 2 months ive been experiancing problems with my xr500 i swear either its my provider or the xr500 or im getting ddosed or messed with my ping was lovely now its high and also jumps up high from low its just about unusable also im having dissconection t3 dissconections and weird things going on i seriously need help here kind regards greg pearce ps do i need an update ?
  25. I just picked up the XR500 after reading some reviews and from the recommendation of friends. This issue has plagued me daily since getting the router. I keep getting a "Can't find Teredo IP Address" error for my Xbox One X (wired, Alpha updates). I have a Xbox One Day One (Wi-Fi, Alpha updates) in another part of the house and it doesn't get the same issue. It sometimes goes moderate on COD WII though. I also have a PS4 but haven't seen any issues except for it collecting dust. I did set up Port Triggering rather than Forwarding. Could that be part of my issues? It looks like some other people are having similar difficulties but I can't make out where to start. Please let me know if you need additional information. I'm somewhat of a networking noob but I usually figure things out. Thanks, Ken
