    DumaOS 3.0 Beta

    I think the first few people have been invited to the XR500 beta so I imagine the emails will start rolling out more widely very soon.

    I know a few folk with leased/business/dedicated gaming lines and they have just as many problems on CoD as the rest of us do so I don't think that makes as much of a difference as you might think.

    Im with ABB, the standard setup for ABB's ip handout is CGNAT. If you haven't opted out of CGNAT you will have issues with gaming. Give them a call to have it removed and youll be given a public ip instead

    ping-lag-shoot 1st die 1st

    I did, I spent even more on the RAX120. There comes a time if you get issues and you don’t get the performance you want and that includes hardware for better coverage it’s time to move on. I’m not alone on this either. You could sell the the 500 on and take a hit and move on.

    I said back in 2018 when the R1 Beta was launched that Netduma needs to communicate with the community to avoid impatience and general frustration. I feel both Netduma and Netgear needed to send out an email immediately after a potential beta tester registered to indicate in which wave(group) they are and which estimated date their waves download links will be sent out unless there's some major issue. This kinda leads me into my second point that if they wanted to alpha test the software with a limited control group they should have done so without notifying the community that there's a beta (you don't dangle a bag of candy asking the class who wants some and then just share with your friends).

    Defeat MW Lag Compensation!

    Generally low ping is a good thing in most games, but in this game most good players and streamers etc seemed to be trying to get ping in 70-80ms range to avoid the disadvantage of lag compensation. There are a lot of ways to do this, pick a server further away, add artificial delay, or play on a hot spot etc. However recently I've noticed they have all started playing on much lower pings around 15ms. So somehow they figured out how to bypass the lag comp AND have a low ping. Maybe the settings Seye's using are the answer. I don't understand why that would work, but if it does that's all I care about. I will try them tonight and I will try adjusting them while in party to see if there's different settings in party. On a side note the party leader shouldnt affect your connection other than putting you on a different server, because we are playing on dedicated servers not p2p correct?

    Dedicated servers

    The servers you're referring to that have the block button greyed out have been whitelisted by us as they are authentication servers required for online play so it doesn't matter what your ping to those servers is. Are you allowing the router to auto ping as the host should also be on the map.

    I understand you're frustrated now but performing internal tests and then a beta are very different. Different user setups, ISPs, connection methods etc. We have to be cautious, if we did an immediate open beta and it bricked everyone's routers then that would be a lose lose situation and you would be way more annoyed then. More batches will be rolled out as and when, keep an eye on your emails.

    ping-lag-shoot 1st die 1st

    Why? Routers like the XR500 hold their value you could get a nice chunk back and get an Asus. They game really well, a few users on this forum use them. (no disrespect to Netduma) people use what suits them best. Wait for 3.0 and if its still not doing what you want, then move on.

    Don't feel like this, just sell it if its not doing what you need. Netduma are a great company but not all hardware is a good fit for your needs.

    Another way to reduce ping?

    In theory minimizing hops is better in general, but it can be worsen sometimes ex. taking less hops but with bad performance hops can really be worse. Additionally to the test above, 6ms isn't it too minimal difference? that those margins are not stable and servers sometimes have a margin of (10+,10-) of latency. What I am trying to say is if you do another multiple tests, you might find ISP SKY gets 87ms and NordVPN getting 101ms and vice versa. PS: at least that's what I think, and I could be wrong.

    Device Map Link Devices

    I agree this would be awesome. I will put this onto our internal roadmap. Ideally it would be good if DumaOS could figure out which interfaces belong to the same device, but I don't know if we receive enough information from each device to make those decisions reliably. Perhaps a MERGE button? You choose one device, press MERGE, then choose the second device from the list. Maybe you could then label the interfaces in the side panel, but give the device a master name on top of those interfaces.

    That’s good news. I guess the other helpline was unaware of the consumer laws and more based on the US side of things. Touch wood you should get a new router and soon be up and running again. I had to RMA my router and it all went well and my replacement arrived quickly here in the U.K. thanks for the update.

    Hello Tommy1987, I see you're trying to get a better ping, I'm guessing for online games. Well that can be tricky, as no router can magically make your ping better overall. However in certain situations, some features can help though. Like if you're on a home network, with your internet being nearly maxed out often. Using a feature like QoS, can help keep one device from maxing things out, while keeping bandwidth reserved for a device you have given a "high" priority. As for you mentioning speedtest giving you a lower ping, and mentioning something else giving you a higher ping. I'm guessing that "something else" is a game you're playing. Well here's the thing. Popular speedtest sites, have a ton of test servers, and they will auto select a server very close to you. With that you get a very low ping. However with games, even the most popular one's like COD. Even for the size of the USA, there's maybe only 10, or so, server locations. Which means, if you happen to live in a certain part of the USA, you might be a good distance from the nearest server. Which there's nothing a router can do to help that. As the router can't magically move these servers closer to you. Also depending on your ISP, if they don't have good routing to servers, that can also make your average ping stay higher. Again something router can't help with. With geo filter, you can try moving the area you search for a server, away from the one you're connecting to, to see if maybe another nearby server, gives you a better average ping. Anyways I hope this helps you, if you have more questions, post them, and we will try to answer them the best as possible.

    Bullshit, skill is long ago gone in COD. COD is very connection depending. If someones server sync is better than yours, no matter what you'll lose the gunfights all day long.

    High Priority Traffic Bug

    9 months ago this issue was confirmed and we still have no fix. This product is still being sold on the market with defective software. - The last firmware update for my router was Dec 2019 - (Fixes the WiFi 5 GHz channel GUI display issue for China and Australia). No firmware updates since then. Can admins please give us some transparency on timelines for firmware and stop beating around the bush? Is there a fix for this in DumaOS 3 or not?

    No you're not missing anything, I believe this is an issue to do with Geo-Filter compatibility with Sony's Party Chat servers. Basically the Geo-Filter is blocking the party chat servers when they're outside of your radius. We need to whitelist all of them so that they never get blocked. This will be done in the next cloud update, i'll make sure. For now, I would suggest connecting to a party (with no games open) and ALLOW any of the servers you see on the map.

    Advice on Latency/bandwidth QOS

    Hi, thanks that makes sense, I will try and run with a more strict cap on the streaming devices then. It definitely shows that burst behaviour you talk about. I've actually found the powerline fine for gaming for years now, I have ones rated 1200mbps which I know to this location will give me around 75mbps bandwidth in reality which is fine for gaming and latency has not been an issue - and I dont have the alternative of running a cable.

    Help with Vodaphone Fibre Broadband

    @Crlsn so is your vodafone router in modem mode because if not, you may face double nat issues which is one of the reasons which is why you should use a modem as you would essentially be double routing. Pretty sure you would lose some speed aswell but dont quote me. https://kb.netgear.com/30186/What-is-Double-NAT One of the ways of getting around double nat is by setting the DMZ IP address on your vodafone router to the address of your XR500 as it forwards everyport to your XR500 which then manages itself but in my opinion the modem is the more elegent solution as its just plug and play.

    Salut dany ddwrt peut servir car il n'utilise pas les même algorithmes que duma os comme open wrt avec (fqcodel,cake,etc...) et pour être franc l'algorithme utilisé sur le r1 avant duma os était bien plus performant c'est mon avis ^^

    Hi Leandro, As Bert suggested, there is indeed a bug where upload anti-bufferbloat won't work if you are using a PPPoE connection. It won't be long until the DumaOS 3.0 beta launches so i'd certainly suggest signing up for that.

    I don't know if this is caused by DumaOS, it sounds like it might be a wider network issue. One thing i'd be interested to know is if PingPlotter showed any big spikes in a 20 minute period. I'm trying to think if there's anything in DumaOS which could cause spikes on a regular basis like that. Off the top of my head I can't think of anything. Using Traffic Prioritization, we should be able to mitigate traffic spikes like that, but the problem might be that you're losing internet connection for a few seconds. If that's the case, there's going to be a delay no matter what happens. Here's some suggestions for the meantime: Make sure that your sliders on Anti-Bufferbloat are on 70%, and that the displayed bandwidth is lower than your real-world maximum. This is so that the packet bottleneck is moved from the external network onto your router, giving you more control. Consider adding your PS4 to Traffic Prioritization using the Games Console profile. This will mean that, if a bottleneck occurs, PS4 traffic will be pushed through first.

    Imagine fully maxing out your up- and download yet your ping only spikes by 5 milliseconds, thats what Iain pulled off in the lab. It wouldnt matter at all whats happening in your network, your ping would always be spot on. Iain posted the results on his blog a few years ago, its several pages long with lots of test results and graphs (including benchmarks against unnamed industry leading routers). Maybe that blog is still up. Yes pretty much. Iain said the router would analyze how the ping to the server is fluctuating and then add a variable delay on the fly to it to keep the ping stable. Say you set this feature to +8 milliseconds, your router would then just add an artificial 8 milliseconds delay on top of your normal ping/connection and remove a chunk from it each time the actual ping to the server would rise. A stable but slightly higher ping will give a better game experience than a lower but unstable one. And yes it may not work with high jitter connections but low to medium jitter connections could be balanced out perfectly assuming you set the artifical ping increase high enough. using Anti-Jitter and Anti-Spike at the same time could be huge! But who knows if its still a thing, last message was like 2 years ago in which a Netduma employee said its still worked on.

    QR Code Generator

    I'll need to research a bit more about how this works... So it's a format that QR code scanners understand, and it involves storing your SSID and password in the form of a scannable code... Isn't that kind of insecure? But in response to your question... Yes I think we could easily add this to DumaOS, although it's pretty easy to just google WiFi QR Code Generator and do it yourself.
