  1. Hi all, Ive been running some ping plotter tests and ive found some interesting results. Ive got my QOS set to 70/70 with the anti-bufferbloat as always on. As you can see the results aren't very promising. I've pinged multiple ip's with near enough same results. Ive been running these tests throughout the day whilst other devices have been streaming content, surfing the web etc.. From what I understand, the QOS should prevent all local congestion from allowing my ping to spike. So why am I still getting this?
  2. I know there are probably a lot of factors that goes into losing network connectivity however, I never had this issue before with my previous router. The Asus RT-AC87U. I purchased the XR500 and I updated to firmware version v2.3.2.40 I am experiencing these random internet outages with the router. I know this is solely on the router because once my wife says "Hey did we just lose internet again?" I look over at the router. All of the lights are white so I unplug my pc from the router, connect my pc directly into the modem (which has all of its lights on) and I immediately regain internet connectivity. I'm fairly competent when it comes to troubleshooting these types of issues with unplugging everything rebooting everything but this XR500 will just randomly lose all connectivity and its rather annoying. The router runs good for a few days and then I have to power down the router completely, turn it back on. Unplug and re-plug the connection to the cable modem and then wait 5 minutes for it to establish that it has a connection with the cable modem. I can still return this router however, I genuinely like netgear products. Id also like to eventually take advantage of the Netduma features. I've disabled QoS, I had some strange issues with QoS and speed so I disabled QoS. I'm also using hardwired connections to the router from 2 pc's Not using Geo-Filter either. Anyway, thanks for reading this!
  3. Hi, What settings are you using/recommended for the Ping Assist and Geo-Filter? What distance do you have on your Geo-Filter and are you leaving it in Filtering mode all the time? PS. I am using the NetGear XR500 if it differnet on the R1. Regards, Gaz
  4. Hi all, Been having a re-curring issue with regards to setting up my internet via the wizarf on the xr500. For some reason it doesnt seem to be able to detect the upload speed automatically. I constantly have to enter the values manually. When I first bought the router it worked flawlessly, both upload and download speeds were detected just fine. Any thoughts??

    XR500 Ping issue

    Hello I am new to the forum and this is my first time setting up a router. I am having an issue with the ping on the netgear xr500. I attempted to install it with the DM200 but that was unsuccesful, so i have resorted to using the sky router and having the XR500 in the DMZ with wireless turned off (the sky router has no modem mode hence why i purchased the DM200). My ping has increased from around 25m/s to 45m/s. I have placed my PS4 in a DMZ and tried port forwarding and upnp (not all at the same time, seperately. I have also changed DNS servers, used the geofilter and QOS as described on the forums). I have attached a traceroute of me contacting the ea servers but i am struggling to understand what it means. Can anyone see what my issue may be?. 1 192.168.1.1 (192.168.1.1) 10.366 ms 9.741 ms 11.572 ms 2 192.168.0.1 (192.168.0.1) 9.423 ms 10.203 ms 11.037 ms 3 * * * 4 be451.pr2.enlba.isp.sky.com (89.200.132.208) 44.027 ms 42.916 ms 42.682 ms 5 rackspace-ip81-27.no-dns-yet.lonap.net (5.57.81.27) 42.949 ms 42.129 ms 42.984 ms 6 * * * 7 134.213.97.149 (134.213.97.149) 42.413 ms 134.213.97.153 (134.213.97.153) 42.865 ms 44.874 ms 8 corea-core6.lon3.rackspace.net (164.177.137.13) 53.355 ms 42.375 ms coreb-core6.lon3.rackspace.net (164.177.137.25) 42.569 ms
  6. I previously submitted a post regarding bittorrent traffic being recognized as "high priority traffic" in the QoS settings therefore dropping total download speed. The Tl:dr of the resolution of that post was "watch your port numbers" HOWEVER i have noticed something in particular that i feel the duma team should investigate on. I have realized that no matter which ports i use on specifically the " qBittorrent " client even when duma classified games is turned off it would detect some packets as high priority which triggers the antibufferbloat. Its not a lot of high priority packets but enough to keep the antibufferbloat in a permanent on/off situation. I would say every 25 sec it triggers 1 high priority packet that turns on the antibufferbloat. I thought this was odd so i tried 2 different bittorrent clients to download the same file with same designated ports and to my surprise no high priority traffic is detected it only happens on the qBittorrent client. It would be great if the Duma team could replicate this and see what is causing the problem. TlDr qbittorrent client triggers high priority traffic while other competing clients like uTorrent do not.
  7. Hey guys, I was wondering if I could try out the Beta firmware? @Netduma Admin @Netduma Crossy @Netduma Fraser @Netduma Iain @Netduma Jack @Netduma Joseph
  8. 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
  9. 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
  10. 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. 😃
  11. 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?
  12. 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
  13. 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
  15. 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
  16. 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
  17. 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!
  18. 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!
  19. 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.
  20. 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.
  22. 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!
  23. 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 🙂
  24. 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?
  25. 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
