    When will we be able to change the congestion algorithm that the R1 uses? In the last few seconds of this Netduma announcement video you can see the download graph and it looks like Cubic Congestion Control is used. This is sub-optimal for gaming since it doesnt consider roundtrip time or other metrics that are relevant for gaming devices in your network. And using Cubic is probably also the reason for why we are forced to set our connections to 70% to prevent congestion. Ages ago Iain claimed to have created a congestion control algorithm that in his lab allowed him to max out his complete connection while his ping only spiked by 5 milliseconds. Googles BBR Congestion Control is very close to what he promissed, is out for several years now and could probably be implemented very quickly by you guys. For those who dont fully understand what i mean here is a picture from google: In the last few seconds of the Netduma Video above you can see the bandwidth graph which basically looks like left graph below in the picture. This is bad and causes lag. What you want is the right graph it gives more bandwidth AND less lag. It has some downsides but those could be adressed by the R1 only assigning BBR to gaming devices for example.

    We're still planning on doing the announcement today, it'll be a bit later though... About 8pm UK time? I know it's late but we're rushing here to get everything ready!

    Auto ping vs in game ping

    In game ping meters add processing delay etc. All games do this, that is why the in game ping is higher. Auto Ping is your direct ping to the server and this is what you should focus on as it is what you can control.

    VPN and ethernet switches

    Ah very good! I have an older nighthawk that might do the trick. It'd get all 6 on the vpn and geo-filter. I'll give that a whirl. See if I can get it to work. I might be back with more questions lol. Thank you both for your help, I greatly appreciate it!

    after 5 years i'm very tired of all this ... this is a very summarized version of my personal experience with this Company. in late 2015 i got the R1 which served the purpose on ADSL connection and somewhat controlled few aspects of my gaming, years went by as NetDuma empty promises over and over and Over. Yet technology improved so internet for most part as ISP had at least here in Europe comply with whatever was going on around them so connections got a lot better so wifi-routers (Netduma functionalities becomes obsolete) ... Now one day we've been informed of a partnership with Netgear which sure has some good hardware but never ever had good service nor maintenance (Software is obnoxious) on wifi-routers so to me all this sounded kinda of fishy ... but nevertheless said hey maybe they have a chance to redeem themselves, so for NetDuma which that point filled us with empty and painful waiting and a promised land that never came (the infamous new Beta version ... Anyone remembers).... Still on faith i tried extensively the xr500 and then the xr700 which both have great hardware potential but neither have demonstrated software wise any of that ... not going to sit here and list all the problems that both have cuz frankly is embarrassing especially on security side (not Netduma fault for most part .. i know) Still updates are nonexistent as Netgear customer service ... So gave away both routers to the shop and got an Asus RT-AX88U installed merlin and finally forgot it all about it ... back to the real world ... Now this PR stunt all over again in spite of all that had already happened.. once again Netgear get it first then maybe the outdated R1 and all comes down to a Beta which gives at first look of what ? Really !!! Geo fencing and few other things justify all this waiting all over again ? and you guys already working on 3.1 ... seriously... come on guys... You cannot even get a 3.0 Beta out properly and to you say we already working on 3.1.. hellooo... is this for Real !!! Not to mention all the PR from Netgear when you buy the router which none ever happened, but hey we promised you something so wait for it ... I don't know why i even wrote this post, maybe got really frustrated by this complete non sense (False Marketing and PR) or just maybe had to get it all out once and for all ... and put my R1 in his original box full of promises and wait to become what should already been ... Still Just my humble opinion on Company that has a very Unique idea/way on how to treat loyal or new customers ... So long

    After calling them yesterday they told me they'd escalate the issue and suddenly today the NAT issues are resolved. I spent 6 months thinking I had an issue with my Xr500... oh dear. For anyone else having this issue it looks like as the carriers run out of IPv4 addresses they may start using something called CGNAT, there's a piece about it here https://www.aussiebroadband.com.au/help-centre/nbn/tech-support/cg-nat/ It's not really the carriers "fault" as much as it is services still not migrating to IPV6 (sony, nintendo, microsoft)

    It’s now a waiting game for you. Just relax and wait, at some point if you read their blog everyone will get a chance but they are keeping it for a small number to start with as it would be a tad crazy if say 100 beta testers went for it at the same time.

    QOS is congestion control. As for 86/86 or 70/70 it all boils down to what is best for your connection. It is not a 1 size fits all i'm afraid.

    I HAVE UPDATED IT FOR COD MW READ JUST BELOW HOPE ITS NOT TO CONFUSING BUT THIS TOPIC WAS STARTED A LONG TIME AGO It also now shows you how to traffic protize cod mw ports 2019 below I WILL POST COD MW PORTS jUST BELOW HERE these are the ones i found so far i will keep updating it with new ones here I recently upgraded to new dumar os fw and think its great but its missing one thing important i think In network monitor it now does not show you what ports the game you play is connected to uses In cod bo4 now cod mw 20019 i used this feature all the time In cod bo4 same for cod mw19 everytime you would join a new lobby it would show us new ports it was connected to. You would always be connected to two ports in every game this first port is always port 3074 udp the second was always diffrent ever new lobby you join uses diffrent ports If you stayed in the same lobby for an hour the two ports would be the same for an hour or how long you stayed in that lobby . Once you change lobbys the game changes ports it uses so you need to put new ports in traffic priortaztion I think this is why the connection keeps varying For cod mw 2019 its now three ports instead of two HERES WHY ITS IMPORTANT when i put in the ports it uses for that game in traffic priortization my hit registration would get a lot lot better i did this before on cod ww2 now i do it for cod mw2019 and it helped my hit registration .And on cod bo4 Somtimes i would do this during a game. i would be playing a game and struggling to get a kill then in same lobby same people playing i would enter those port number in and the hit registration was great easier kills same for cod mw2019 EVEN IF YOUR NOT PLAYING COD you still might need it for other games. i used it for all my other games to help get a better connection and i would like to use it in the future for new games I really dont wanna downgrade to an older fw just to use this feature as it was so GREAT SO ANY GAME YOU WANNA SEE WHAT PORTS IT USES YOU NEED THIS As some games it dosent tell you all the ports it uses I would love to use this for red dead redemption 2 online when its released soon Fraser told me if enough peole want this feture back in the firmware they would put it back in SO I JUST PUT A POLL UP SO PLEASE VOTE THANKY YOU So i am asking any who might use it before or might wanna use it in the future please vote on the poll here if you would like to see it in i future update I hope i made sence sorry for any typos And please post to say you would like it the more people who say they want it they saidthey would reinstall it if the demands there Thanks i have now edited to update for cod mw READ FROM HERE for cod mw 2019 and how to set up ports correctly From members who know how to set it up correctly below RL317 shows how to in this post below He knows more about it than i do ahe advised me how to set it up correctly Just letting you guys know i think now playing cod mw that the next update that the dumar has has to reinstall the older network monitor My hit detection \hit registration is now brilliant since i done these steps Heres why If you want your hit registration or hit detection to be great read this When playing cod mw the game uses 3 ports to play thats if you want godd hit detection \hit registration The first is port 3074 this is on ps4 i think its 3075 on xbox but i am not sure i dont know about pc The second port stays the same untill you restart the game i think this is the data centre or either matchmaking The 3rd port is changes every new game this is the dedi or peer your playing on Thats why you see new people every game and thats why you do good one game but not the next Thats because you changed dedis and the ports have changed So thats why you need 3 ports every game the first is 3074 the send is the matchmaking or data centre the 3rd is for the game mode you play Atm i am making a list for the ports it uses Just letting you know you can do this yourself to see what ports is needed but you have to downgrade to the older firmware well thats on netdumar1 I dont know about other routers Also this cane be done if you have a router with openwrt on it You would have to ask admins as i dont know anything about the other routers Heres a way to put the ports in traffic priortization Source 3074-3075 destination 30000-45000 udp rule 1 Source 30000-45000 destination 3074-3075 udp rule 2 Source 3074-3075 destination 3100-3500 udp rule 3 not nessasery optional Source 3100-3500 destination 3074-3075 udp rule 4 not nessssery optional HERES A

    If you get better routing to the VPN server and then to the game server rather than direct to the game server then it could improve your stability and perhaps ping.

    Ivacy VPN Issue

    Welcome to the forum! What you need to do is go to Ivacy and get an OpenVPN config file. Most VPN providers will give you these. Now, go to Hybrid VPN on your XR500, press Add VPN and go to the advanced tab, now you need to open your ovpn config file in notepad and copy/paste the text into the Advanced field. Now you should be able to connect, you can add devices for the VPN to affect in the panel on the right.

    The server on the West Coast USA is a whitelisted server, either the game or the console need this server to authenticate, connecting to whitelisted servers is normal and they don’t effect gameplay as game servers are separate. You can tell a whitelisted server as it has a circle around it. I would set your range to about 1000km and also use ping assist. You can find out more about the geofilter and ping assist in these articles. http://support.netduma.com/support/solutions/articles/16000077072-dumaos-optimal-settings-guide-geo-filter http://support.netduma.com/support/solutions/articles/16000087579--dumaos-optimal-settings-guide-ping-assist

    Defeat MW Lag Compensation!

    How To Make MW Playable, My Sad Conclusion Before everyone comes in guns blazing, hear me out. I've spent years and hundreds upon hundreds dollars trying to optimize my gameplay. Higher bandwidth internet (200/20) top of the line modems (SB6183, SB8200, CM1000) high end routers (X4S, Netduma R1, X6S) expensive lan cables, and of course monitors, scufs, headsets. Way too much money to summarize. Nothing was helping. One day the game is enjoyable, the next I feel like a day one noob. Some days the connection feels solid, the next I feel like im on dial up. Until one day I thought about what's making my gameplay bad APART from SBMM. Lag comp. We definitely need it to make real time, online PVP work, obviously. But the servers cater to poor connection quality a little too much. It gets worse and worse each year. So i had the thought: How about I reduce my upload speed! The server will take pity one me! .... This was snake oil. One game the gameplay feel super smooth, like what it should be. The next, i felt like trash. Lol. So throttling didnt work... Or at least, was highly inconsistent. Then I tried the unthinkable. Play on my phone's wifi hotspot. I thought the gameplay would be jittery, extremely laggy, with possible disconnects. I. WAS. WRONG. I set my hotspot to a 5G bandwidth, restarted my phone to clear the cache and free up RAM. Disabled a few apps running in the background and closed a few more. I connected it to my xbox then started up MW. You will have a Strict NAT, there is no way around that. You will only be able to connect to Open NAT players. But the biggest difference I noticed: The Gameplay. I went from the little timmy with the reaction time of a snail to seeing people first and being able to react to people. And my bullets were hitting, better than my cable connection. Lol. Long story short, I made an alternate account to strictly play on my hotspot account, a legit account. My SPM double and my KD was higher. I rush nonstop so I do die a lot but gunfights felt even. Im dropping 30 kills a game, roughly. Not the best pubstomper but the game is enjoyable! Conclusion: Don't waste hundreds of your hard earned money buying modems, routers, and various other equipment to make a game play better. Especially when the game DOES NOT care about ping, jitter, or bandwidth. Hook up to your phone's hotspot and join the side Activision seems to care about more - The Lag Comp Crew. Side note - there are apps you can disable to free up RAM, and a few settings to change on your phone to make the gameplay ultra smoother. I usually have 2.7 gigs free without optimizing. After, 3.8 gigs of RAM free. I might make a YT video showcasing my gameplay for proof. copied from one guy from reddit

    Yeah mine is just sitting on the ledge in my man cave gaming room. Probably just going to retain some of money that I spent on it! I bought the router that sable has asus ac88u. I set like 2 settings on that and never look at it again!

    Defeat MW Lag Compensation!

    It could be that everyone has charter in my area too with the corona bs and sucking up all of the bandwidth. Its not a huge issue just occasional while watching twitch the stream buffers. My gaming experience is decent and I don't need to stare at my settings. I just set the 2 things I need to set and thats it. Probably gonna sell the XR. Was holding on to it just in case the the update was monumental which I doubt.....If it ever comes out, lol. I really don't care anymore!

    That server handles a TON of local island traffic and is really a tough server to consistently game on. What I did was (and this worked beautifully) Deny the surrounding Miami Peer/Dedicated servers and force either a Georgia, Missouri, or Illinois server every game, instead. If you traceroute your ISP hops, to their source - then place your Geo-Filter location to the end of your trace you'll notice a more fluid connection. Give it a try. It may take you longer to search for a match, but it's entirely worth it.

    Packet Loss in Cod

    I went through weeks of notes & settings and hours upon hours of testing when I purchased my Duma R1 back in the day. Tweaking your settings takes some time, so take notes what works for your gigabit asymmetrical connection. Make sure you backup your settings every couple weeks. You'll find a wealth of knowledge here, Welcome!

    hola Qillp! Mi opinion es que si merece la pena, ya solo con el Qos mas avanzado que trae te permite priorizar un dispositivo sobre otros de mejor forma que con el original, yo lo e utilizado con todo tipo de conexiones y siempre me a funcionado bien, 1000, 300 y actualmente con 600Mb. El unico pero que le encuentro es que si usas pppoe se produce cuello de botella, pero eso ocurre igualmente con el original, por todo lo demas de maravilla, ademas pinta bien lo que traiga la nueva actualizacion!

    Lag and inconsistent packages.

    Well it sounds to me like it might be down to the Fritzbox not opening ports properly for the XR500. If ports have been forwarded correctly from the Fritzbox, they should remain open for the XR500 and be available for forwarding to anywhere. I don't know why this would be happening but it's probably a communication problem between the two routers. As a test, you could put your console into the DMZ of the XR500 temporarily and see if your ports remain open permanently. If they do remain open, it suggests a problem with the XR500's port forwarding. If they don't remain open, it suggests a Fritzbox problem.

    Hey, welcome to the forum! pollution has answered your question perfectly. I would say that a console doesn't use much bandwidth for gaming, less than 1mbps so it is probably not necessary to set an allocation anyway.

    I created an account here just to say thank you. I've had the same issue ever since I purchased the XR500. I even bought a new modem too because it never comes back up after a reboot. It's a household joke that every time I say I have to reboot because everything slowed down, the family makes plans to do other things for 3-4 hours. I don't know why but I never thought to try and boot them up simultaneously. I would always go through the process of boot modem first, then router and just accept it's a half day and a dozen reboot process. I was an hour into this reboot when I saw this. I rebooted them both together and they came right up. I am very grateful you posted this. Saved us several hours of headaches during COVID
