Has anyone ever explored using Hyper traffic for prioritizing Skype or Webex conference calls? I assume you would need to set up manual rules in the advanced section. Can I please hear some suggestions and thoughts? I will be receiving land line, cellular, and internet connections to the same conference bridge.
I already have a skype phone number, but I'm open to better conference call apps, if there are suggestions. 1 big drawback of skype is I can't record the calls, which is something I want to be able to do.
I just want to say that technically Netduma doesn't owe us squat for communication on this subject. None of us are paying for the update. They tried to have a thread about it, and it had to go away because of people getting way too demanding. Give the guys a break. They want this as much as we do. They also want to avoid buggy firmware. They also don't have a huge corporate machine backing them up.
I'm sure I would provide a good time for everyone with my color commentary as I'm getting melted by all the really good guys...
And the ping shouldn't be a difference as we're playing for fun but something tells me a few may have issues with it but maybe not...
Whatever we do...we cannot tie the date for the tournament to the release date of OS! HA HA! couldn't let that one pass! I think Fraser is right. It would have to be on a Saturday afternoon, eastern time,maybe like 2 or 3 in the afternoon, to be able to bring the most people's schedules together. In my opinion, I think it would be more in the spirit of the event to play together regardless of distance. The other idea I had was for everyone to start a new player just for the event. so everyone is on the same playing field.
I can't help you much with BO3. There should be tons of threads about best settings etc etc. You'll have to search the forums a bit or hope someone else chimes in. I mainly use the R1 Congestion Control sliders for the games I play. Chances are you're getting on to dedicated servers if you're seeing players out of your Geofilter settings. Also 20ms host is great, but the thing you need to remember is the Geofilter can't kick other players offline who are connected to the same host as you are. So you may have a 20ms ping to the host, but if a person from China gets onto that same server, there is nothing you can do about it. You could leave the match, reduce your home location, or maybe change your home location so you get hooked up to different servers/hosts.
I'm going to drop a big piece of knowledge on you right now regarding the R1. You can fiddle with the settings a million times to try and get the perfect game, but there is so much that you are not able to control when it comes to your gaming packets once they leave your house; you're better off setting the CC sliders to 70 and if you use the Geofilter set your PA to 35- 40 ms or so and your home range to about 800 miles or 1300 km and just play to have fun and forget the Netduma is doing anything for you. The range you set on your GF is kind of dependent on where you live...if you live in China you'll need a really large range, if you live in NYC or LA...you can probably make your home range 300 miles or less...
Team up with me on XB if you're playing TF2. major masingil
Please understand that I'm a customer, not an employee. I don't work for Netduma. I'm an unpaid volunteer forum moderator. My opinions are 100% my own (actually I sanitise at least 50% beyond being recognisably mine).
Certainly speaking the truth there! Anyone remember the unsanitized version of CB? He's practically civilized now...Netduma you have broke our man CB!
I know a lot have been trying to help, but reading through your posts it's apparent your set up is maximally flawed. The only thing you have on your R1 is your XB. Everything else is upstream on the superhub. I know you did this because you wanted your full speeds, but it's the ghetto way of setting things up. By nature you're going to have issues. Hyper trafffic won't do anything because you only have one thing, the XB, hooked up to the R1. Congestion Control won't do anything either because the XB is the only one at the R1's trough, Basically the only thing the R1 will do for you in this set up is Geofilter.
I'm not trying to be a dink. Just maybe pointing out something you're not thinking about. Please give me a slap if my reading comprehension is way off, but I know I read, "So i have since simplyfied it to have the xbox running through the R1 then onto the hub, everything else connects directly to the hub, so only my laptop (when streaming) and the xbox are running through the R1".
I called vz to change from coax to Ethernet before I even knew about netduma. The call took about 5-10 minutes and there was no issue. My ping to google.com went from 6ms to 3ms. I thought at the time that this was my lag issue with cod. I was dead wrong and continued my research which led me eventually to get the Duma.
My setup now is ONT>Duma>fios router>netgear r6300.
Wifi off on the vz router (in a metal box in my electrical room in basement anyway). Wifi on Duma and r6300 set to same id and pass, Duma set to channel 6, r6300 channel 11.
DHCP is off on both the vz and r6300 routers.
Everything works great and being that the Duma is the first router in the chain, it sees every device in my home which gives me full control. Now it's just a matter of me understanding and mastering the netduma settings.
If anyone needs assistance with this type of setup, feel free to pm me or post here. I've been a part of the community only a short while and already love the vibe. I look forward to future updates. This is an amazing product.
The free updates are the siznit. Since last summer they had 2 major updates that have been amazing. version .6 is awesome. Welcome to the Duma Army
