#183870 R1 DumaOS Briefly Delayed

Posted by lllRL on 6 days ago

Do people really want a broken ass rushed update that could potentially have bugs that brick your device completely?
Is that the road people want to go down?

I'd rather get a product I know is going to work and perform 100%


It should take, at absolute most, a few more weeks. Nothing more as we have everything else working.


¯\_(ツ)_/¯


#183528 Is bufferbloat still a problem for people with let's say 400 Mbps internet ?

Posted by lllRL on A week ago

What MoDBoX said. I actually had far bigger problems with bufferbloat on a higher bandwidth line. Granted it was only 100Mb, but I couldn't get an A+ grade even if I chopped off 80% of it. On 50Mb I can chop off just 3% and average under 2ms bloat for an easy A+ (<5ms bloat for an A+, and I think it's <30ms for an A).

I daresay the popularity of the ISP in your neighbourhood or street has an impact regardless of how much bandwidth you have on tap. The Internet generally tries to do everything with its pedal to the metal so any other device on your network will be affected by this. If you have a 10Mb line and try to download a game, it'll use as close to 10Mb/1.25MB per second as possible. If you're on a 1Gb line it'll try to use as close to 1Gb/125MB per second as possible. The only exception I can think of is streaming; whether you're streaming gameplay to Twitch or trying to watch an online TV service, it doesn't seem to max out your line. I noticed Twitch was using 35Mb tops last night when I watched a friend stream, and when I tested PS4 streaming at 720p60 it seemed to max out at around 5Mb upload. I don't think that would cause bufferbloat because you have so much more disposable bandwidth free, but it's still advisable to cap your bandwidth slightly to guarantee no additional lag.

If Spectrum or AT&T are providing you with cable you'll most likely still see BB issues. My higher bandwidth line was on cable and BB was an issue before I even considered the idle line jitter lol. With 400Mb down (and I'm assuming at least 20Mb up) you should be able to get away with higher than 70% CC though, since 1% of that is considerably more than 1% of 50Mb or whatever. Hope that helps.


#183491 Ping's to server

Posted by lllRL on A week ago

Nah, I had a better time on CoD when I was with crappy jittery Virgin Media. Now on BT I get a flat 7ms to the UK and it was so bad on WW2 I uninstalled at level 20 odd. Zero hitreg, getting pumped by dudes who are just ahead because of their higher latency, while I'm a deer in headlights supposedly facing in a different direction 😂

And after getting into an IW lobby tonight that included a Brazilian, someone in midwest USA and someone in MALAYSIA along with the usual central Asians and Saudis I can confirm ping is definitely not king LMAO. Might as well just pick my gun up and smack them over the head with it because bubble bullets do sweet fuck all.

BTW you can test CoD servers on PingPlotter if you grab a server IP, but you'd have to figure out how to bridge your PS4 connection through a computer to run Wireshark to find it, then spend an age googling the IPs you find to locate the one that belongs to Choopa/Vultr/whatever. I did that for IW but obviously that isn't relevant anymore.

If you're getting 25ms to the UK from somewhere in the UK you must be somewhere between the midlands and Scotland (or maybe the northwest of Wales)? Most of the biggest melts in the UK are in Scotland on 30ms+. I say move further north and enjoy nobody shooting back at you LOL


#183331 R1 DumaOS Briefly Delayed

Posted by lllRL on 2 weeks ago

I can't believe that everyone is still pissing and moaning over the R1 not getting updated. I come on here every few days just to have a laugh at all the people still complaining. Let's face it folks, they should possibly update it eventually, and if they don't, just get the DumaOS. That's what I'm doing eventually!


Why on earth would anyone "just get the *XR500" if we were told we're getting DumaOS on the R1 in April? That's exactly why we're here waiting for an update 🤦🏻‍♂️

Large dot in northwest Mexico close to Cali border
ID: 2345733ee2c2a9ae
Update button, not temp ban
Ping: 15-16ms

Some of those were found just by clicking the big circle multiple times as it did that animation where a dot enlarges inside the big one and it swaps. Most of them I got just sitting at the main menu, noting down IDs until they stopped changing and then pulling my ethernet cable and repeating. I actually played a few games after I stopped finding new IDs and grabbed a couple more, but since I got whacked around a rock by a skipper supposedly from Syria I've had enough and turned off. Hopefully the IDs above will do LOL


#183069 Cables

Posted by lllRL on 2 weeks ago

Mine is connected with a slightly longer cable between my modem and router, then a shorter cable between my router and Xbox. Which also means it's easy to plug in an ethernet for my laptop if I want to test (because the router isn't in a different room to my Xbox).

I don't know if it makes any difference but I was paranoid that the router shouldn't be right next to the modem, just in case it was radiating magnetic interference (or something like that).

I've no idea if it does that though, it probably doesn't.

This is what I do. When I signed up with BT the guy who got me online ran an extension from master socket (near the front door, nowhere near any power sockets) to the living room under a double power socket, so I could connect my modem easily. I have a 0.5m DSL cable from wall to modem, then 15m of cat6 FTP ethernet to my R1 upstairs so I can run a shorter ethernet to my PS4. I've tried playing downstairs with a short ethernet from modem to R1 and then another short one to the PS4, and it doesn't seem to make a difference.

DSL cables seem to lose signal strength very easily over short distances (the unshielded ribbon cables that come with modems at up to 3m length are terrible), but even cat5 ethernet is good for 100m assuming no issues with EMI etc.

"Cat6a supports bandwidth frequencies of up to 500 MHz, twice the amount of Cat6 cable, and can also support 10Gbps like its predecessor. However, unlike Cat6 cabling, Cat6a can support 10 Gigabit Ethernet at 100 meters. [Cat6 cabling on the other hand, can transmit the same speeds at up to 37 meters.]"

The ideal setup would be wall - short DSL cable - modem - short ethernet cable - R1 - short ethernet cable - device. If that's not possible and you need more reach, you should work backwards from device to R1 with a longer ethernet cable, and if necessary the next best step would be to use a long cable from R1 to modem.

#182576 cant force myself into us lobbys from new zealand

Posted by lllRL on 3 weeks ago

I've got no idea mate, sorry; I've never used a VPN.

Last time I tried playing on US servers myself I signed in after an R1 reboot (with the desired settings loaded), and then saw only triangles back in Europe so I pulled my ethernet cable from the PS4 and reconnected, and that got me on to my servers of choice. Maybe give that a try?


#182518 cant force myself into us lobbys from new zealand

Posted by lllRL on 3 weeks ago

Thank you for the helpful advice, i will attempt to follow what IIIRL has said tomorrow and will let you know if it works, yes there are still aussie servers but its locked to only 1 game mode, tdm, I'm trying to get into some infected or dom lobbys as its gettin kinda stale playing tdm all the time. Anyway thanks again


Yeah even I stick to TDM only. Forcing specific servers is fair enough but matchmaking is so loose overall that you get endless triple digit pingers even in the most populated game mode so it's less of a hassle to just stick to that. Would be nice to play some KC or something -_- anyway yeah, good luck with that. It always works eventually, you just have to convince the game you live elsewhere and repeat it a few times haha


#182500 cant force myself into us lobbys from new zealand

Posted by lllRL on 3 weeks ago

Unfortunately there's not much you can do if the game developers decide to region lock the servers.


Honestly this seems unlikely for IW or any CoD for that matter mate. Seeing a lot of Asians still and now a fair few Americans on EU servers lol. If matchmaking is that bad naturally it should be easy enough to force a move.

Sabar - when I try to connect to other servers I notice the first attempt usually fails, even if I've rebooted everything after changing settings. Sometimes the geofilter just doesn't work and I'll see red circles outside of my radius, but even if that's not the case I can connect to online services with my filter over the US for example, search for a game and then just see triangles appear in Europe over and over again.

What I tend to do is change the settings before I connect to online services, reboot the R1, open the game, connect to online services, open the PS4 browser on the geofilter page, see which servers are pinged when signing in (you shouldn't see red circles only with those settings, just red circles in north America), then search for a game and if I see the game trying to find me an EU game I'll reboot the R1 from the GUI via the PS4 browser, watch the quick menu online status button (greyed out until you're back online), reopen the geofilter page, double tap the PS button (so you can get back to IW with the browser still open in the background), connect to online services, double tap the PS button again and watch the geofilter as you reconnect. Then search for a game and you should start seeing dots in north America. If it fails you can try pulling the PS4 ethernet cable out and then connecting to online services again. You should end up with NA games soon enough.

Good luck :)


#182398 Interleaving?

Posted by lllRL on 3 weeks ago

anyone know what interleaving does to your connection?


From what little I know of it, it raises latency in order to stabilise the line if faults are detected. I don't really know the ins and outs of it because I've always been lucky enough to stay on fast path despite getting VDSL2 over a year and a half ago.

I'm sure there'd be some good guides/discussions on it on ISP or networking guide forums online.


#182297 R1 DumaOS Briefly Delayed

Posted by lllRL on 3 weeks ago

we are about to complete 6 weeks without the update, please Netduma provides us with any info about the release date.


Unfortunately six weeks still comes under "weeks at most" :( ;)

#182208 Black Ops 3. PS4, won’t connect to dedicated servers

Posted by lllRL on 3 weeks ago

I know someone who spends part of the year in Netherlands and the rest in Thailand. He says he gets 120ms or so to the Japanese server and so he prefers to avoid it and play peer hosted games to avoid those Japanese players. If you set a radius around SEA, perhaps out as far as China and India, you should find more suitable games. I wouldn't advise trying to play on the Japanese server just based off of what that guy said.
