LMAO. I've tried pretty much everything mate, regarding the geofilter, congestion control, device prio, share excess and the hyper lane. I don't really have any other devices on while playing but I keep the PS4 in hyper lane regardless. Some of the best connections I've had were using the standard CoD Ultimate profile, 70/70 preemptive and PSN in hyper lane, but about as many have come from weird random setups that make no sense ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Try setting your bandwidth low like 3mb down 1mb upload with 70/70 sliders and use abit of tweaking. this is a more stable way of throttling

#175342 update

Don't quote me on this as I am not sure so this is what I suspect would occur.


You don't have to upgrade but after a while support for the original R1 software would cease.

Quick question rather than making a post, are we going to be able to downgrade to the current firmware on the R1 if we dont like DumaOS?

#167646 Game server ping survey

Posted by RobReapz on 21 December 2017 - 11:00 PM

I am curious to know peoples online gaming experiences mostly for call of duty games past and present. I would like to know when the game is playing well and the connection feels great and when the game play feels more consistent what are your pings to the game servers?  The more people that reply to this the better. Which game and a rough ping is adequate, Thanks.

#166334 Why cant the connection always be like this??? #Bo3TDM

Posted by RobReapz on 08 December 2017 - 03:24 PM

Haha, always have to wait till the other team starts spawning in otherwise it messes up the spawns

Try it on nuketown domination, you can sometimes get to the enemy spawn flag before they capture it and you can mow the whole team down lol

#165195 Anyone seen this TP Link model before?

Posted by RobReapz on 27 November 2017 - 09:00 PM

Am I right in thinking these dedicated modems generally offer better performance over the Smart Hub?

Yes these coupled with the netduma or any other decent router are far better than the ISP provided shit lol.

Awesome! I know there are different variants of the Huawei cab but it doesn't seem like it matters as long as it's Huawei. Time to shop ;)

Personally i would purchase a dedicated modem not an all in one. Cant go wrong with the BT openreach modems they are solid. If its Huawei you need get the HG612 (3B version), plenty on Ebay.

#162429 Netduma with Asus Rapture GT-AC5300

Posted by RobReapz on 31 October 2017 - 04:59 PM

Yeh is possible just connect the netdumas WAN port (port1) to one of the asus's LAN ports. You will need to give the netduma a static ip in the Raptures DHCP settings. You may need to use DMZ as well however i dont use it and get no NAT issues, you need to enable upnp forwarding in the misc settings of the netduma though. (I have similar setup using asus router) You then need to prioritise the netdumas traffic in the raptures QOS settings. Also turn off the wifi on the netduma if your not using it. This is the best you can do with this setup but note you will not be utilising 100% of netdumas QOS features so its not going to be your ideal setup.

I had to remove the first part of your post.

The moderators are here to remove offensive content, language and spam, to remove offensive people and trolls, to offer advice where they can, to counter misinformation and for general forum policing. It is not acceptable to attempt to publicly undermine the moderators or admins, use the report button.


When I said "in your head", it wasn't an insult. I just meant, due to the huge number of variables, you can't objectively determine that it influenced the result. There are literally infinite possibilities between two gaming sessions. So many things will change, not only between sessions but between lobbies, between games, from one minute to the next.


I'm not insinuating that you're a 1 bar lag-switcher either. If you're doing well, winning and maintaining good stats then I don't think that's because you're fiddling with your bandwidth, I think that's just because you're skilled at this game.

What I'm saying is that EVERYONE that is trying to get around ANY system built into a game, which is there to attempt to create fairness for all, to try to gain an unfair advantage (or 'fix' a perceived disadvantage), is clearly trying to trick/cheat the system that's in place. There isn't even an argument to make against this point, it's obvious.


If you don't think it qualifies as attempting to 'gain an unfair advantage' or 'cheat the system', then answer this...

What happens if everyone in the lobby does the same thing and removes their own disadvantage to make it 'fair' for themselves?


Does it then play perfectly, nobody 'sponges', nobody 'drops quick', nobody gets killed around a corner, every gunfight feels fair for everybody?

Do some people still say that they're at a disadvantage even though that's not possible?

Or would it go back to how it was before, when it wasn't 'fair' for you, forcing you to find another lobby where it's only 'fair' for you?


Spot on. I can't play the guitar and I'm a stubborn git.

Not sure why you removed the first part as in no way was it offensive, it was purely factual. In future i shall make use of the report button, who looks at these reports out of interest? please dont say yourself lol in which case i would like to speak to your supervisor :D .


If everybody had a 'fair' experience then skill would become the overriding factor of how well someone does not how good their 'cod' connection is and as we all know for cod connection is the biggest weapon.

Posted by RobReapz on 26 October 2017 - 03:44 PM

is an understatement.


Of course try it, we all have. Might as well wear lucky underpants though.

Lets be honest the majority of people on here prob wont have tried these settings as everyone seems to be aiming for the A+ bufferbloat settings and for some people that works but if it doesnt you need to think outside the box especially for cod games. This is also not aimed or for the camper type player or newbie who gets under 15 kills a game etc as it is unlikely they have the skill set to be able to tell the subtle differences the bandwidth changes make to their gameplay.

#161995 This is how cod have been lately

Posted by RobReapz on 25 October 2017 - 04:44 PM

There are loads of ways of optimising the congestion control but this is how i would start for cod games. Firstly set the highest CC slider settings that give you the best bufferbloat results for your network. Then you need to untick share excess only on the upload device prio flower and give your console a value so that its get approx 1mb upload, you may have to adjust your upload slider down if you have high speeds (more than 100mb upload). Then plays some games, if you are still feeling behind then you need to keep lowering the consoles upload device number until it feels better. you might have to go all the way down to 100kb lol. If you start rubberbanding and lagging tho your upload is to low. You also need to try these settings with pre-emptive and then reactive to see which plays better for you. Do not worry about your bufferbloat tests as they are irrelevant at this stage, its all about how the game plays and feels. I have had great games with a BB F rating lol.


This is just the first step really and not a guaranteed fix. If you are still struggling you maybe want to look at gaming with a VPN so that you can increase your latency. I am currently testing this out and the results are pretty promising. (I would only recommend this for people with good clean lines with no issues though). Again you could spend hours tweaking but unfortunately cod is still cod, a completely bullshit randomised FPS.

When i say settings i predominately mean the congestion control sliders and or the bandwidth allocation for your console, nothing else really.

#161939 This is how cod have been lately

Posted by RobReapz on 24 October 2017 - 05:05 PM

I'm not talking about how 'it plays' which usually means 'how well I did', I'm talking about lag.

Other than that 'connection interrupted' at the beginning, there wasn't much at all. Nothing much looked wrong or seemed weird.


I don't want to be a dick and pick Kevo's gameplay apart but watch it again and think to yourself what you would do in that game...

I know I wouldn't have made a lot of the moves that ended up in a death. I'm not saying they can't work but things like running out from a blind corner and then leaping into the air as you go out into the open area are really risky plays.


There was a lot of rushing and jumping, some dodgy aiming and a lot of getting dead.

If it doesn't work the first few times then it probably won't work for the rest of the match so you have to change it up.


And on top of that there was a party of three AND a party of two on the other team, if they were communicating properly then they can afford to be less skilful players because they have a different advantage.

I wasnt even looking at how kevo was playing or if he was making mistakes etc its not about that, Its all about how the enemy bullets affect your character model and its very subtle and hard to pick up on, especially if thats all your use to. I like stealth01 have pretty decent stats and can tell from the first gunfight i get into whether or not the lag comp is against me for said match and all to often for me anyway i find i am at a disadvantage for the majority of my games. Put me and stealth01 on LAN and we would shit on the vast majority of youtubers  :D

I feel your pain kevo, enemies having instant aim assist hit detection on you and dealing double damage it feels like. What is your ping to the server? Oh and CB if you think thats normal you've got your settings wrong lol, it can play a hell of alot better.  

#160739 Duma OS idea (if it's not too late to implement) - thoughts?

Posted by RobReapz on 07 October 2017 - 07:15 PM

I have already requested this feature as i believe its a must have, especially for cod games and their crappy net code.
