Operation Insecure

01 July 2018 - 03:54 PM

I keep getting this pop-up error on my Geo-Filter? I'm puzzled as to what this means. Tried 30/30/30 hard reset, still no luck. Have latest fw (, thinking about rolling back to .10 or quite possibly original default build that came with xr500.

I'm unable to ping any servers in my region, due to this erroneous pop up.

⚠️Helpful Trick⚠️ Ping Multiple Dedi's on Dashboard

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!

UPNP + QoS Traffic Prioritization

02 June 2018 - 04:06 PM

I don't know if this topic has been expounded upon yet. I'd like to cover it briefly and eliminate some confusion. Hopefully, Admins or someone with a little bit of port experience can help?

My XR500 is currently wired to 2 devices (laptop & ps4) with wireless turned off. I have DMZ disabled, with UPNP enabled and a couple port forwarding rulesets Activision recommended for Open NAT.

When I enable UPNP under Advanced Settings my assigned PS4 IP says there's a series of Internal/External ports I've never seen before.

9305-9308 UDP
3074 UDP w/ Internal ports 3166, 3165?

Should I prioritize these internal/external ports UPNP gives me under QoS Trafficking as well?

I'm trying to determine if QoS rulesets for traffic prioritization are even needed with UPnP enabled.

Thanks in advance!

XR500 Update Wishlist (Mods/Devs Tag Thread)

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.

UPnP disabled = Better matchmaking?

Call me crazy but, I've never been a fan of UPnP. I triggered the only 2 ports COD WW2 needs and the game is finally running flawless.

My XR500 is connected to multiple devices but I still don't see the need to enable Universal Plug & Play.

Maybe it's placebo? Anyways, share your thoughts...

I'm not connecting the baddest gaming router on the market to any peripheral devices (printer, tablets, NAS) that may hinder it's performance.
