#187201 What SpeedTest Value to use

Posted by vShikko on A week ago

Try enabling HT160 under Settings>Advanced Wireless, if a wired connection is not available.

Avoid the 2.4ghz band if at all possible, as it is laden with latency.

Sorry for the late response guys. I wiped the XR500 clean to it's factory fw and re-installed the latest That seemed to work once I booted up a game of WW2.

Every firmware update from now on I'll just wipe the XR500 clean to prevent any conflicting boot errors in the config.

#184288 ⚠️Helpful Trick⚠️ Ping Multiple Dedi's on Dashboard

Posted by vShikko on 22 June 2018 - 04:13 PM

If you hate your Dashboard cluttered with excessive R-Apps & just want to keep ping tabs on your favorite dedicated servers while gaming, try this...

•Select Geo-Filter - Scroll down to Allow & Deny list.
•Ping Dedicated/Favorite Servers you've whitelisted.
•Select Pin in adjacent Ping box.
•Return to Dashboard.


To add multiple Server/Ping boxes just repeat instructions above. This has made gaming a lot easier & I spend less time adjusting the Geo-Filter to find good lobbies.

Thanks for your time!

#180253 XR500 Update Wishlist (Mods/Devs Tag Thread)

Posted by vShikko on 03 May 2018 - 05:48 PM

Overall, I'm thoroughly impressed with Netgear's XR500 router. (R7800 with a bit more flash RAM with DumaOS GUI equipped)

Yet as a man who enjoys his pasttime playing FPS console games outside of his career... What can WE the consumers expect from the next update? Will Duma's FW be seamless and

Can we reach a mutual agreement on disabling DPI?

The main reason I purchased this Netgear router with DumaOS GUI was for the Geo-Filter functionality. Now everything seems like a marketing gimmick.

What would you like to see as a "gamechanger" for the next update? Please respond below.

#176724 MTU setting?

Posted by vShikko on 25 March 2018 - 09:47 PM


Select MTU Test tab

Make sure you tick "Respond to Ping on Internet Port" under Settings>WAN Setup

The last value that doesn't need fragmented is your answer.

#174998 Give us the option to perma ban servers in Duma OS

Posted by vShikko on 08 March 2018 - 08:59 AM

I second this. I have an avg 14-15ms ping to the dedi server in Miami. Problem is the majority of people in my lobbies are pinging offshore in the Caribbean with almost 40ms^ response times! I dread those lobbies because I notice rubberbanding and TTL numbers skyrocket.

So I move my geo-filter upto GA widen my radius to 500 mi, apply strict mode, and everything plays fine...

It's that god-forsaken Miami server!

Thanks again Admin! Sim's walkthrough was a lot of help as well.

#173814 Help with Party Chat.

Posted by vShikko on 24 February 2018 - 12:06 PM

I'm running the Nighthawk XR500 directly to my docsis 3.1 modem, B.D.

I forwarded ports 3074 UDP/TCP and that made no difference with fixing party chat, so I turned UPnP on to take care of the Open NAT for now instead.

I still have to apply the hotfix patch sent to me this morning from the Duma Admin. I'll keep you guys updated. Thanks again!
