#183985 QoS Settings

Posted by Netduma Jack on 19 hours ago

Welcome to the forum :D I hope some of the spartans out there can make use of your advice. We'll see how it plays with Halo: Infinity!


If you need any assistance at all just let us know.


Just so you're aware the way you have it setup means that QoS is not active. You're likely still benefiting from Traffic Prioritization though which is why you're finding it so good. If you experience any local congestion while playing or otherwise then Anti-Bufferbloat wouldn't help the way you have it setup.

#183885 ? How do I Re-upgrade to the latest version?

Posted by Netduma Jack on A day ago

Just to clarify on this, which hardware are you using (XR500 or R1), which version are you on and which version are you after? :)

#183883 Surprise

Posted by Netduma Jack on A day ago

Yeh out of curiosity, how does it play in Saudi Arabia? Are there servers over there or do you get peer-to-peer? What's your ping like? :D

#183882 R1 firmware not updating

Posted by Netduma Jack on A day ago

Do you have an update on updating the firmware?


We can't speak for the development team, so any news will likely come from them directly either here or on our social media channels. Believe me, as soon as me or Fraser know anything we'll be shouting it from the rooftops!

#183672 Netduma speeds have dropped off!!

Posted by Netduma Jack on 5 days ago

Hi Jack


Thanks for the help , sorry could not answer back earlier, had to work . I have got a vpn but the software is not installed and no settings put into netduma. I had checked my other devices laptop etc before I had the new hg612 modem and they were all showing the same speeds as my main computer , about 8-10 meg.


At your suggestion I thought I would check them again and the speeds were 24 meg on them, working great. As my speeds were ok with the new openreach modem and my other devices I rechecked the ethernet lead going to my computer , was all ok , tried a different lead to be sure still the same problem. I have software installed on my computer reboot restore rx pro , which enables me to quickly," in seconds" restore to a previous checkpoint. So I restored to mid May checkpoint and checked the speed test and the speeds are back up to 24 meg.


There must have been something in some software/operating system  which buggered it up. Never had anything like that happen before. When I used the speed test I tried multiple browsers , chrome , internet explorer, edge etc. and they were all showing low speeds so I do not know what had kicked in to affect all of them. Thanks for mentioning to check the other devices again ,it put me on the right path. Hopefully if someone else has the same problem it might help them too. Thanks again mate , HAVE A GREAT DAY!!  :)


That's really interesting, thanks for sharing your solution. I have a feeling many speed issues are down to the device being used to test. Maybe something to do with your network driver; I'd watch for your speed dropping again after an update. Let us know if you need anything else :D I'll lock this thread and mark it solved.

#183513 How does R1 handle bufferbloat at 400 mbs speeds?

Posted by Netduma Jack on A week ago

Does bufferbloat still happens at high speed?


As far as I'm aware (though I could be wrong) bufferbloat shouldn't occur on those speeds. Bufferbloat occurs when your connection is heavily saturated by downloads etc, though it'd be incredibly difficult to saturate your connection on speeds that high. You'd have to be downloading a monumental amount of data to experience bufferbloat on 400mbps!

#183439 Cloud Update - Optimised for Fortnite & PUBG etc

Posted by Netduma Jack on A week ago



Hi Tappy - this is quite a list! Awesome research you've conducted here. I'll make sure Fraser (our resident Fortnite tester) sees this.

#183428 Rubber bullets ww2

Posted by Netduma Jack on A week ago

What will this step do! Better connection?


Maybe - WW2 players stand by the opinion that ridiculously low pings (like 10ms) tend to make the gameplay worse. Their lag compensation isn't great for those kinds of pings, so forcing a slightly further away server could make it play better :)

#183215 Qos

Posted by Netduma Jack on A week ago

My ping graph on my xr500 stays at 13ms with my new modem I just bought what does that mean?


It means you've got a 13ms base ping, which is excellent for gaming :)

#183093 DnsMasq heap buffer overflow vulnerability---R1?

Posted by Netduma Jack on A week ago

For old vulnerabilities like this, I'd say no there's no concern. The R1 has a built in firewall to protect against attacks like these. Even if a fix hadn't been issued in 2017, the chances of being affected by this without a router firewall would be extremely low.

#182920 R1 taking a dump?

Posted by Netduma Jack on 2 weeks ago

That's... Random! Well all's well that ends well. Let us know if that happens again and we'll take a closer look :)

#182883 I really don’t like netduma and the forum support

Posted by Netduma Jack on 2 weeks ago

Since you're unwilling to actually take advice and use the forum properly, I'm going to lock this thread. If you have an issue and feel like engaging with support, feel free to open another thread.

#182881 QoS Issues

Posted by Netduma Jack on 2 weeks ago

Factory reset of the router seemed to fix the issue.

No idea still what caused it. 


Thanks for all of your help


That's great to hear! Let us know if you need any more assistance :)

#182488 cant force myself into us lobbys from new zealand

Posted by Netduma Jack on 2 weeks ago

i have strict enabled and have reset my ps4 multiple times

*edit* it will only work for ww2 not infinite warfare :(


Hi, welcome to the forum!


The reason for this will be region locking. If you're trying to force a US server from NZ in Infinite Warfare, the game likely won't be letting you due to the low player base. The server setup changes whenever a new CoD game is released, so you likely wouldn't be able to force a WWII server in the US when Black Ops 4 comes out.


Unfortunately there's not much you can do if the game developers decide to region lock the servers. Are there no AUS servers you can connect to?
