    COVID-19 and what it means for Netduma

    Would you please stop using that word in this context. It doesn't mean what you seem to think it does. You have been saying that for nearly a year. All you are doing by using that word is creating false hype. It's inconceivable.

    Pingplotter is ICMP ping and games like battlefield measure their loss on UDP packets. When there is traffic congestion across your ISP etc, UDP packets are the first ones to get dropped. Because UDP packets do not get resend while TCP/IP does. So that could explain why pingplotter is fine and your UDP traffic isn't.

    The Future of DumaOS: Version 3.0 Last year we released our first major update for DumaOS, Milestone 1.3. You guys loved it, so we quickly got to work on the next milestone, packing it full of features to make your router even more powerful. This next milestone will instead be a new version, DumaOS 3.0, and it marks the biggest leap forward in our history. It will contain a huge amount of features never seen before on a router. Instead of just sending out each of the features piece by piece, we needed to wrap them all up into one giant release. We will explain why soon 😉 (but don't worry, we're not doing an EA!). We know you guys will want to get your hands on 3.0 as soon as possible and we are working very hard to make this happen. But until we are sure, the release date is ‘to be confirmed’. But in the meantime, here is a teaser one of the many features coming to your router in 3.0: Data History. With Data History you can see how much bandwidth you’ve used over time and drill-down to see which devices and/or applications are eating up all your data or find out how many hours you spent gaming over the weekend. If you are under a data cap, you can also see if you are nearing your monthly limit. This is just a small glimpse into 3.0. We will be gradually revealing more features over the next few weeks so keep an eye out for more announcements. One final thing, we launched DumaOS Insiders yesterday. This will be a private subforum where we share first-looks at features we are currently working on and using your feedback to shape them. There are only a few spaces left, so sign up here if you haven’t already: https://forum.netduma.com/topic/29480-sign-up-to-dumaos-insiders/ Big things are coming. Thank you for your support.

    I am new to the forum but I have had my XR500 for a few months. I was guessing they would have new firmware/updates out soon. I kept checking and didn't see anything and then stumbled on this thread. I wish I would have seen this before my purchase because I would have kept my business with Asus. Being in IT and having a project without a projected completion date must be nice. I am a little disappointed in the responses we see from Netduma.

    XR500 Network Dropping

    I've just read through this thread I think you really need to push for a product replacement or your money back. You've already wasted enough of your time.

    There isn't a scheduled reboot feature in modern Netgear routers as far as I know, although I could be wrong, my R7800 and RAX120 dont have that feature in the settings at all. The old prossafe/prosecure models don't even have that from what I can find online either.

    CoD is broken. It dosn’t have anything with skills to do. Without connection on your side your pointless. The Game plays diffrent on what settings you play with and who you play with. Playing solo strict played well on my older router then my newer ones. Playing party is random depend on who you play with and what settings they are using. Hit detection is going to change if your mate changes his QOS settings next game. (Its true I tried it today) And yes game is really random and these youtubers have the ”right” settings and ofc they are good but without the right settings even I’am pointless. It’s nothing wrong with our connections, its the game own ”lag comp” bullshit. Broken game.

    xr500 dropping internet

    Hopefully Fraser this is something Netgear and DumaOS 3.0 will fix together as a whole. I cant blame the Op for being upset and very disappointed. It comes down to how much time one has to fiddle with this router that really starts to eat at ones nerves. And its not like there a cheap router. Even if it was a cheap router it should handle basic DHCP work. Its a shame to see this really. Im surprised that Netgear hasn't been quicker at a fix for this. And its a shame to see new people come to the forum with the same issue. One thing to note also is in the Op's logs his DNS servers are being tagged as some sort of DoS Attack TCP/UDP Echo. Makes me wonder if that also is adding to his issues. Its clearly not normal to see his DNS servers in the logs like that. and He might be able to add a port forwarding rule to help clear that from the logs. And who knows it might help keep his router to be a bit more stable.. Even if this isn't and issue it makes me wonder if there is filtering being done on his DNS servers. Ive also tried this awhile back what I believe you have mentioned also Fraser at disabling DHCP once one has there Ips reserved for all devices. And once one loses connection sometimes a simple power cycling of just the router tends to get it back online. But even that im sure varies per user and type of setup one has. Hopefully the Op hangs around! 👍 Zippy.

    Yes I'm 100% certain nothing was being used during this time as I was asleep. I've actually ordered a modem from ebay, apparently it seems to help people's problem as its g fast compatible. Will report back next week when it arrives.

    Its possible because i tried with ddos protect enabled with secured NAT and the result was that i was behind in gun fights. Bullets seems to kill me in 1 hit unless i set up WAN.

    Here you go. This is with filtering off. I believe this is the server I play on most regularly, With filtering on, I'll sometimes get a UK or EU server, but even when I do I'll get code leaf when the game ends and I can't reconnect to the lobby without restarting he game.

    XR500 locks up/reboots

    Hello, My XR500 has developed an issue where it seemingly locks up and reboots approximately every 20 hours, sometimes less. I don't exactly know when it started happening but it's very noticeable since I started working from home 2 weeks ago. It worked great for 11 months and as far as I can tell nothing changed. There are more devices connected all day long and my brother got a new phone but I doubt a couple more devices on the WLAN would cause it to blow up spectacularly. When it happens all devices lose internet connection (and DHCP if I try to reconnect a device before the reboot) and the router's web interface is inacessible. After a few seconds the power LED turns red then it reboots and resumes operation seemingly normally. What I tried: Factory reset with .56 Downgrade to .40 Factory reset with .40 Downgrade to .32 Factory reset with .32 Every factory reset the only settings I change are: SSIDs/passwords LAN IP (from .1 to .88 because that's what I used on the old R1) Static IPs for my home servers Port forwarding for these servers Static router IP Disable UPnP My setup the XR500 connected over ethernet to an Orange Livebox 4 that really only does FTTH modem. XR500 is DMZ'd for gaming purposes. I did do a bit of dust cleaning inside the router with compressed air but it was clean already so no overheating issues. All IPv4 as IPv6 seems to break DumaOS to the point I get catastrophic packet loss on my computer. So if anyone has an idea, or if there is a way I can access the pre-reboot logs to take a peek that would be great! Rally

    Next time you decide to do changes try this and see if it works.. Reboot, login to router, click on settings, then hit APPLY under internet setup.. Hope that helps next time.

    xr500 dropping internet

    so like an idiot I went and a bought 3rd XR500..... brand new router in less than a month it did the same internet cut off even it showed it was receiving internet twice. now I am starting to see again the same issues (sawtooth pattern in pingplotter like if it was congestion, inconsistent speeds, high jitter, higher ping) which I thought was my ISP but after running a test it is not my ISP. I ran a test as soon as I saw this happening I unhooked the PCs ethernet cable going to the router and plugged it into the ONT box (without resseting the ONT box) and ran a test on ookla speedtest and pingplotter. I didnt get no sawtooth pattern on pingplotter it was actually running normal. I ran some test on ookla speedtest and speed were pretty consistent jitter was always between 0.30-0.70 and ping remain a 1ms-2ms. I turned the router back on plugged the PC ethernet back into the router and what did I get? sawtooth patterns on pingplotter, inconsistent speeds in ookla with a jitter of 2.38 and a ping of 5ms-7ms. (I know it is not much but I am having issues when I play online for that I return the router which costs $300 for that I buy a $100 regular router or an ASUS which I really think about doing) so the issue is not a broken router or defective router if thats the case then you guys are sending out broken routers even when we calling and exchange them. the issue is an EXTREMELY buggy and broken .56 firmware. is there a firmware that is working properly? I know .32 is compromised on the XR500 sooooo I mean when is this new firmware coming? some dont have the time trying to figure what will work, some of us have to work from home and since the virus most of us have to work from home. do we have to file a complaint so that NETGEAR can send out the update?

    Did i just get lag switched???

    If you encounter stuff like that it's almost guaranteed a PC player. You can see a trend in Warzone. The first few days after release you could not find a lobby with crossplay disabled but more and more people are turning it off already.

    5ghz vs cat5 (xr500

    You've got some good advice here. I would always recommend using ethernet cables for gaming so either use the one you have or upgrade it to cat 6 so you can get your full speeds as well for when you download games/updates. Otherwise if you don't want to get a new cable then you could use 5GHz for downloading and it'll likely be faster.

    Even though they're in your filter, if you add them to your allow list can you then hear them or do you have to allow that server in the US to hear them?

    5ghz vs cat5 (xr500

    Why not just try both? I have 500/500 connection as well and I can easily achieve that on my devices in the same room, 300ish on the other end of the house. I have used the XR500 wifi for gaming as well, cable is preferred but it worked fine for me on wifi with PS4. If you plan to get another cable tomorrow or something, just use wifi for a day. Otherwise just install the CAT5 cable. You can easily swap to wifi from the menu.

    Massive packet loss might be down to what’s going on at the moment. COD servers are not great anyway but given that the internet is under strain which kind of shows on the plotter test.

    Its hard to explain but i was wrong in what i was thinking as ive been reading up on it and found out i was wrong But i will try to explain what iwas thinking In you screen shot it shows to values 1st is length the 2nd is len I noticed in many screenshots on the forum that the lenghth value was always higher than the len value So i thought this meant that we were sending more packets than the server could handle =length As the server looked like it was sending back less packets = len That was my theory But after reading up on it Its just wireshark dosent capture 42 bytes of data If you add 42 to every len value in your screenshot it matches the length value They all match up meaning i was wrong I hope i made sence And thank you for the help I really thought i was on to somthing as well

    Nah. Crap like that has been happening to me last few days occasionally on MP. The servers are overloaded and in game I'm getting 10-20% packet loss at times. Also, with that pic you've tagged nohitreg but from what I can tell, your second and third shots with the sniper missed. First one not so sure, think it should've hit but can't say for defo.

    That is expected, if people are having wireless issues I generally advise them to move any wireless devices like headphones (in this case a mouse) etc about 3 feet away from the router as it can interfere with the WiFi and vice versa. There isn't a fix for it really as it is normal behaviour - they both use the 2.4GHz band which is why they can clash. Your WiFi can even be affected if there is a microwave being used too close to the router as well!

    Prioritize the console, depending on the extender it shouldn't actually show on the device manager.

    XR500 wifi boost

    You might get better range by turning off SmartConnect, and then turning off the 5 GHz channel. Forcing your devices to use the 2.4 GHz channel will improve range compared to the 5 GHz channel but will decrease speed a bit

    Hybrid VPN

    There will likely not be a fix until our next firmware version DumaOS 3.0 is released but I couldn't say when that would be, we want to do a beta soon. Meanwhile you can change the DNS on the router to the VPN DNS or use a VPN Client if using for the PC.

    Do you have that if the DHCP server is disabled as well? I do understand your frustration, I am confident you'll be much happier when 3.0 is released.

    XR500 - Automated Scheduled Reboot Feature

    In the real word it is utterly unacceptable to have premium priced routers behaving like that. Not sure how Netgear gets away with it but people that spent £275+ for a router expect it to remain stable without experiencing performance degradation for let's say at least a week right? In my opinion feature requests like this one shows how desperate the end users are. I would know as I requested the exact same feature in a different thread. I mean from everything that I have read so far in this forum and on the Netgear one, it seems that Netgear is not willing to focus on bug fixing the broken firmware of the XR routers. So if we are stuck with the reboot as the only "workaround" we might as well have it automated...
