#187053 DVI vs HDMI

Posted by major masingil on A week ago

i don't think you'd see any difference on console.  Your refresh rate will stlll max out at 60hz, and I'm pretty sure you can only have 1080p for resolution. I could be wrong, but that's how I understand it

#183790 Playing MP Steam games from same network

Posted by major masingil on 16 June 2018 - 04:58 PM

Ok, thanks. Do you have the problem with any other game or is it just Borderlands?

We haven't tried any other games yet, but here's what fixed the issue:


I left UPnP for the R1 "On," and set up a static IP for my PC. Then I set some port forwarding rules for it based off a Steam Knowledge Base Web page below:




AAAAANNND Voila - Wallah!!    It worked perfectly for us and even cleared up some audio/chat issues we were having.  The audio from our chat would actually slow down, like if you were going to switch a record album from 45 rpm to 33 rpm. The longer we spoke through the mic the slower it was.  


I suspect this will clear up any Steam related MP gaming issues we would have had moving forward.  


Thanks for the assistance!

And what in the name of Greek buggery is going on here?
Dissension among the rank and file? The great unwashed daring to get ideas above their station? Such treachery would not have been tolerated during my time roaming these esteemed halls.
And never mind page after page of this self-entitled, whiny, conspiracy bullshit. Why hasn't the knuckle-dragging Vanilla lowland been unleashed to quell this foetid uprising? Who has the dubious honour of holding the keys to his cage nowadays? - @Crossy, @Fraser, @JD, @Zenon??
To the rabble-rousers, a word in your shell-likes...
You may think you're pretty good at this bitchfesting thingy, so you will be disheartened to learn you're all pretty shit at it. None of the barbs resonate because they're tired, rehashed and, quite honestly, pathetic compared to what's gone before. They smack of pre-pubescent angst and the ramblings of admonished children; consequently, nothing hits home. Overall, it makes you look terminally stupid so put away the scatter-gun approach to insults and veiled threats. Stop ejecting toys from prams and wait politely in their house for your FREE upgrade.
@Fuzzball - By my return, I expect to see your opposable toes firmly gripping the throats of these pusillanimous little skid marks. I sense the peasants are revolting, and it's 'Vitai Lampada' time for the Duma Army and its brethren.
Up your game, tout de bloody suite, Son.

#179582 R1 DumaOS Briefly Delayed

Posted by major masingil on 26 April 2018 - 03:02 PM

We were very patient. The most of us who are complaining did run out of patience over the last year of broken promises. And kewl that it is 4 free no doubt (despite that right now we have nothing at all) but that's no feature or anything it's just nice (if not even incremental to not piss of OG R1 fellas IMHO). The point is, if you cant give it for free that's ok but then just don't announce it as free at least until you are 100% sure you can give it out for free. And it's in no way an excuse for breaking promised release dates not only once and letting the loyal community down. If you promise and fail often enough there will be a point which nobody is left who cares that it's for free.

I still hope the best and that the last promise of some weeks maximum will be fulfilled in the end of this journey. If not I am literally done with this topic.


And we are might not be replaced but it feels we were sold out to Netgear as, in fact, they paid for DumaOS. I dunno how their agreement is/was but its a matter of fact that the deal with Netgear delayed DumaOS at least once for OG R1 users, not to mention the lack of communication on DumaOS news/updates/teasers/development status the community had to experience based on the agreement with NG. 



i got banned 2 time (adel75 and adel76) from this forum for calling them out last year when it was supposed to release in "next month.."

no surprise here.. and btw thanks for banning a paying customer.  wonder if colonic is still waiting for his update.. 


i have an R1 to sell in paris for 50€ if anyone interested.

You both have the same router you originally paid for. Did you buy it because you wanted the new OS that wasn't even created yet? If so, you only have yourself to blame.  You realize Duma OS is entirely new, correct?  NetDuma is would be well within their rights to make us all pay for the new OS.  They didn't make us pay because we have been with them from the start with the R1.  As their development of the product improved they have passed those improvements on to us for free multiple times. You people act like these guys are a huge multi-national corporation.  Well guess what,  if they were a huge multi-national corporation they would have made you pay for the new OS. On an international level it is us Americans who are always portrayed as the childish ones and you European folk were supposed to be all next level reasonable and mature ...turns out whiney child adults are a worldwide problem.  Go cry to your mammies


#178652 R1 DumaOS Briefly Delayed

Posted by major masingil on 17 April 2018 - 04:52 PM

Don't know bro. Honestly. I just can't help feeling that this device is obsolete.

I think you might be correct. The R1 was groundbreaking. Now it's hardware limitations are detrimental to anyone with over 60Mb of service. The R1 shined if you had low bandwidth from your ISP. It's not the router of the future internet. I'm a little bummed but only because I wanted to play with the new options. I still really like Netduma as a company. People need to remember they're a really small company

#171988 Who should get a XR500?

Posted by major masingil on 01 February 2018 - 05:50 PM

If I were going to be streaming all my TV services and was worried about 4K , I would upgrade to an XR500.  Right now with 50/50 fiber from my ISP and a Netgear router in AP mode doing my wifi connectivity, I'm content with the R1.  I don't really have a complicated home network, but I do have many wifi connected devices. I seldom think about my routers except to game.  As long as everything stays that way, I'm sticking with the R1.


#169350 Major Announcement: Netduma partner with NETGEAR to launch the Nighthawk XR50...

Posted by major masingil on 10 January 2018 - 04:16 AM

I can understand your point of view to a limit... if Microsoft promised an update to improve functionality as a free update available "as soon as it is completed" and then began selling a computer with the updated software before rolling it out to those who were promised it, there would be backlash by the consumer.
As nice as the Duma team is and the fact that they are/were a small company doesn't change the fact that they are a company that sold us a product and the company made promises to us that it isn't keeping, If they were my friend who made me a promise that they didn't keep then being upset would be "butt hurt", but when a company isn't "fair" there are often consequences that result. I think people sometimes forget that this is a company that sold us a product and not a group of people that we hang out with at the local pub.
Just to be clear, I am happy for them and their success and I wish them all the best going forward. They have a great concept and that's why I bought the router to begin with; I just think that their handling of the OS was less than elegant.

Hey man its cool. You and i have differing views on whether or not Netduma has held up their end of the bargain. I guess I still see it as they have kept their promise. All of us on this forum have been chomping for OS. I've never seen a topic cause so many issues and divide the forum the way this one has. They haven't released OS because they're still optimizing it for the limitations on the R1. (Fraser 1.9.2018, this thread) The Netgear has more memory so the OS isn't as big deal. We as R1 owners also will have more features than the software running on the XR500. We win again!

These guys created this software because they game and they saw a need. I can't blame them for placing the R1 version of the OS on hold while they solidified the program they were going to sell to Netgear. These reasons are why I don't understand your POV. Everyone that works there depends on the success of the company for their livelihood. They aren't in business to make sure your expectations of when they should have OS ready becomes a reality. Some people are acting like Veruca Salt regarding OS

#169253 Major Announcement: Netduma partner with NETGEAR to launch the Nighthawk XR50...

Posted by major masingil on 09 January 2018 - 05:46 PM

I don't understand all the butt hurt comments here.  You have purchased a router you have had several free firmware updates that added enough new features that you should have paid for a new router anyway.  You still have the same router you decided to purchase before this announcement. If you purchased an R1 in the last month, I can understand your point of view to a limit.  The reality is, nothing on this planet has to be fair.  Don't hate on netduma because of bad timing, those are the breaks sometimes.  Sell your R1 or deal with an additional wifi router in AP mode to have 5 ghz as you had planned all along.  From my perspective that additional router in AP mode gives you more options, more ports, and better/easier bandwidth control for non gaming devices because you can put it on its own subnet.

#169045 Finally Fiber coming to my area. Questions/Thoughts

Posted by major masingil on 08 January 2018 - 05:43 PM

Hello all, Just wanted to post a few questions and maybe some thoughts on a new Fiber service finally coming into my area for residential customers. This is a very local mom and pop company that got the job to update the 911 service in my area, they have been around for several years and a while back opened up to start taking residential customers. I have done a lot of thinking and believe using their service will be a great addition to our home. Currently have Comcast cable and internet with very subpar performance. We pay for 150/10-their blast service as they call it.



                 (1) So with the above statement of our current 150/10 plan In your opinion what plan from the Fiber company should we choose?

                      (NOTE: We will be switching to a totally streaming household, using Netflix,Sling Tv,PS Vue, or something similar for the TV part of our entertainment)(We use multiple devices in our home with 4 Iphones , 3-4 Ipads, 3 PS 4's and an Xbox One as well as a

                       laptop from time to time)


                      They sell the following plans for Residential customers: 25/10


                                                                                                               100/25                             *With this said, I was thinking the 100/25

                                                                                                                200/50                               or the 200/50 plan should suit us.


                             Thoughts?                                                                  1000/100



                      (2)   The Fiber company installs into our home the Fiber to a connection box outside the home. Assume that I should just                                         connect to our NetDuma R1 and run our set up as I have been doing since we got our Duma.


                                                * Just making sure I shouldn't or wouldn't need to add another router to my setup.


                       (3) Should I then just reconfigure the input speeds of the new Internet service provider in my NetDuma? (Assume everything I                              have saved will still stay the same in the NetDuma) (Finally have things sorted pretty well as of now and don't want to start                              again as it was painful getting this far-Fingers crossed)


Any thoughts are very much appreciated!


Just want to sort the change over in my mind and wanted other opinions or concerns before we switch. looking for the switch to me made within the next few weeks.

If you're going to be changing to a 100% streaming household you should be at least 100/25.  If you're thinking you'll have 4k in your future I would go with the 200/50.  I'm not an expert on bandwidth, but if you skimp on bandwidth right before turning into a 100% streaming household you'll be sorry when you're gaming.  Everything on the Duma will be saved, but you'll need to update the ISP speeds to reflect the new services you're getting.


As far as your needing new equipment; would your new ISP be providing a modem or a modem/router combo?   If you have a choice, I would go with a modem only, then plug your Netduma to that and turn the netduma wifi off.  Buy a 5 port switch, plug that into one of your ports in the netduma with a cat 5 or 6 cable.  Connect all your gaming devices to the open ports on the switch or netduma. Then I would get a cheaper router with good wifi capabilities,plug it into the netduma with a cat 5 or 6 cable and place it in Access Point mode. You will use the cheap router for all your wifi and other devices.

                                                                any gaming device that isn't connected directly to the R1


Connect 5 port switch and wifi router to R1.  Connect gaming devices to 2 remaining ports of R1 or the 5 port switch. (Make sure your console is one of the ones plugged into the R1 not the switch, lol)  Use the wifi router for everything non gaming related.  You'll be able to use the wifi or the ports on the back of that router for your devices.


Don't take my word alone on the bandwidth matter.  If it were me, I would go with 200/50 if my budget allowed, but I could be way off.  You may want even more bandwidth depending on how the other people in your house use the internet. 

#167545 Is it just me?

Posted by major masingil on 20 December 2017 - 02:16 PM

Yeah for xbox one I mean its rare when my geo would just work without that retarded error on ww2 but yeah you might be right it could just be em so I guess all I can do at this point is bandwidth control then but damn... I would appreciate local lobbies way more haha

I played a few last night without even using any of the R1 resources and had 3 great matches, no disconnects, and even felt like I was winning and losing the fights correctly.  Most likely a fluke, but it 's worth noting.  I had been doing a bunch of experimentation with the Geofilter and Ping assist.  If I was using host filtering, I used my normal home area, I had it set to 300 miles, PA set at 0, strict mode off, and I was getting some good games, but it would still disconnect from the servers, and if I just used PA I, tried everything from 20 ms to 50 ms and really didn't see anything which was more stable than any other setting.

#163026 Using Hyper Traffic for conference calls

Posted by major masingil on 06 November 2017 - 08:10 PM

#Duma Army,


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.
