#157358 Netduma No More

Posted by ColonicBoom on 3 days ago

One thing very interesting that you say in your post is setting the correct bandwidth. That is one of the first things I did after it reset itself every couple of weeks. That and the geofilter. The auto set up always came back with an error and never worked from the first day. To be honest, I could get over the small things if the router would stop forgetting my preferences and make me redo what I did over and over. Maybe I got a bad unit, who knows? But to say that I didn't try by not voicing my issues here is like demanding you take your car back to the original dealer for any repairs. It shouldn't be that way.

 

If you enter your settings, enable cookies and then reboot from miscellaneous setting it should retain them. As far as I know, every Netduma that's failed to retain it's settings is down to the way the user is doing it.

 

Nobody is demanding anything of you.

We're just trying to make the point that the sensible (and blatantly obvious) course of action, when you have a problem, is to go through the official support channels provided by the company that made the device. Any reasonable person would do this knowing that everybody here has vast experience in resolving problems and user errors.

 

To disregard the official support channel and actively avoid asking the very people that are most likely to be able to resolve your problem is strange.




#157349 Ping Plotter

Posted by ColonicBoom on 3 days ago

for gaming purposes. why would you ping twiiter? 

 

 

Because you're testing your line to the outside world.

Not your laptop to your PS4.




#157235 Netduma No More

Posted by ColonicBoom on 5 days ago

What gave anyone the idea that I didn't ask for help.

 

Because you didn't make a support thread in the 'Support' forum. Your first and only post was saying that you have given up and bought a different router.

 

Unless your friend's set up is exactly the same as yours (including the isp hub + settings) then their Netduma settings will not necessarily be the same as those that you need.




#157234 Modern warfare best servers europe

Posted by ColonicBoom on 5 days ago

The best one I've found on Xbox is the Paris dedi. I've never had a dodgy game on it, it's great.

 

I haven't seen the UK one for a while but to be honest I haven't actually been checking which one I'm on most of the time anyway.

Nice try.

 

Nobody would struggle to set up for two years and not ask for support.




#157128 need help internet bad or netduma set up wrong ?

Posted by ColonicBoom on 6 days ago

I left Virgin 150/12 about a year ago because I couldn't play games. I'd lag about teleporting all over the place. And I kept losing TV and internet for days at a time.

 

I went to TalkTalk and then ditched their home hub for a standalone modem + Netduma.

 

Wish I hadn't waited so long before I did.




#157048 need help internet bad or netduma set up wrong ?

If you've got CC set at 70/70, and all devices are running through the Netduma, then yes more than likely it's your line / hub. It looks a lot like mine used to look on the Super Hub.

 

Put the Super Hub in modem mode, connect your laptop to it with an ethernet cable, and test it direct - That will confirm if it's on the line / hub.

 

If you're not in modem mode already:

Make sure you get the right port, I think modem mode will disable all but one of them. You'll get 100% packet loss if you pick the wrong one (no internet). You'll probably need to reboot the Super hub after putting it into modem mode before it allows your laptop to connect.




#156967 I hope COD:WWII has fun streaks like this

Posted by ColonicBoom on A week ago

Pretty sure it won't have rolling-explodey-balls-of-death, Robocop or a giant spaceship  ;)

 

Attack dogs are your best hope for RAPS equivalent, no reason they can't do that.

I suppose you could get a heavily-armoured assault class, or a tank, as a GI Unit equivalent.

 

Can't see what they can do as a Mothership though. Some AC-130 sort of thing maybe.




#156912 PSN ban IP because of Netduma

Posted by ColonicBoom on A week ago

Topics like this always omit the precursor of "So I was being a dick on the internet and..."

 

"I got a ban from Xbox Live / PSN for absolutely no reason..."

 

(Except for sending these 200 obscenely violent/hateful/racist messages, boosting, lag-switching)




#156847 How many Duma's sold worldwide.

Posted by ColonicBoom on A week ago

Nowhere near the number it will be soon




#156601 Arris SB6190 Software version 9.1.93V

Posted by ColonicBoom on A week ago

Isn't this the modem that landed Arris with the class action lawsuit?

 

I don't have access to one but I'd be really interested in seeing the ping plotter graph.




#156590 Lag Compensation Problems? (not sure what this is tbh)

Posted by ColonicBoom on A week ago

some games don't handle the bad connections appropriately

 

Can't argue with that. Sometimes it totally stinks.




#156581 Lag Compensation Problems? (not sure what this is tbh)

Posted by ColonicBoom on A week ago

 

 

Ping generally is king but yeah sometimes we'll still get screwed by some total bs.

I'd take a low stable ping over one of those congested spiky lines every time though.

 

But if you're specifically thinking of IW...

That game seems designed to be completely erratic and unpredictable. Small maps with loads of routes, few 'safe' places to regroup, easy to move across the map very fast, easy to sneak up on people, hard to hear enemies coming. Stupid specialists to help any terrible player knock a pro off their kill streak.

It's the only CoD I remember where, when you go into a gunfight, you don't really have any idea if you're going to kill them or be killed.

I'll often think I'm going to get the kill but it doesn't surprise me at all when something ridiculous and annoying happens and I get spanked by a 0.4 KD.




#156524 The new xbox one update has manual port selection 3074 + more

Posted by ColonicBoom on 2 weeks ago

Lets hope they revert some of the horrendous changes they've made over the last few updates while they're at it.




#156469 Stop posting BO3 A7.

Posted by ColonicBoom on 2 weeks ago

That gun's a beast. I used it with the silencer all the time.

 

What did you change in your setup for IW ?
