    Title says it all. @Netduma Fraser A bit more transparency and less closing threads that aren't even close to being uncivil or insulting. We bought a new version of a product, knowing full well of the sketchy update history of previous iterations (still stuck in Beta for R1 I believe?), and yet again, we find ourselves waiting for new firmware on a device which is less than 6 months old. Not demanding for anything, just clarity for your customers. That's all.

    Same error code for me as well. That only started popping up after the update as well, after the party sits for some time. Prior to latest update, there was no indication other than “connecting” status. @Netduma Fraser - thanks. Appreciate the team’s work; just hope that the timeline is pretty short. I would imagine there’s going to be an increasing number of instances of this given we’re going into a huge game season.

    Guys, please stop. I only come in here to check if the update is dropped yet. This is a forum to come together and help each other. That's how it should stay my friends. Let's make this update the best one yet! I can't wait until Smart QOS drops ❤️

    There will be but honestly keeping it F2000 > XR should not give you a degradation in performance if you do the steps I mentioned to make them work together and the benefit of removing it would be marginal but more complex.

    They use the exact same servers - during the Cold War Beta, priority was given to the Beta on the servers so MW matches would be somewhat off till after the Beta period closes.....same thing happened with BO4 when MW launched.

    !!!!New Buyers WARNING HERE!!!!

    This is a support forum, therefore the majority of posts here will be those from people requiring support. I can tell you that of the people who have had issues, they represent a very small percentage of people who have bought the router so it is not the majority of people. I realize that by looking at the forum you get a sense that everyone is having issues because you have nothing to compare it to as you don't see those that are happy and have not contacted us for support. We have put a lot of work into getting out a really solid firmware and I'm confident it will be available very soon as we have now improved our development process.

    Have you tried the R2 to see how it performs. The way it works is that you can enjoy great gaming but also have good bandwidth for the devices you want or wish to use a higher percentage. without knowing your isp speed if you allowed full bandwidth of say a pc and it starting downloading a file and saturated your connection your Xbox would suffer hence why QoS and congestion control work to insure you get the best performance of your network. if it were me I would try it out as you have I believe 14 days.

    No Internet Amber light

    You are never an annoyance, try what Fraser suggested to get you up and running then over time you can see how it works and became more confident in how routers work. We all started off knowing little 😊 some isp’s are easier to have third party routers, some are awkward and some dead easy. give it a go as you at least have the f2000 up and running, just make notes of what you change in case you need to go back a step or two.

    Fiber connection XR700

    Okay thanks I've requested that for you. We don't have VLAN implemented yet or even connection profiles like that implemented so unlikely to be faster at this stage.

    Destiny 2 problems.

    @Netduma Fraser I had similar problems to the OP on the XR500 , while there are problems with Destiny 2 right now the network errors are not being caused by the XR500. In my case it was caused by an ADSL router in bridge mode. When replaced by another router with the XR500 in the DMZ all the beavers and rabbits went back to the zoo.

    Do you mean rebooting or resetting as there is a difference? When you reset the router did you use the rear pin or software? Is the router in a confined space?

    I am also having the same problems with Xbox party chat,this only started a few days ago. I have just updated to Duma OS 3.0 on the R1and still getting the same problem. Before I updated the OS I could'nt even send game invites,this has only started in the past week I get no problems plugging my Xbox straight into my Plusnet hub.

    What is the XR connected to a modem/router or a pure modem?
  26. 1 point

    Can't make this work. Please help.

    You're overcomplicating this. You can't turn off NAT on the R1. You hook it up as you put it in your drawing. Then you go into the first router. You put the IP adress it assigned to your R1 into the DMZ. And that should be all. All other configuration in your first router as per normal. On the R1 just switch off wifi and QoS.

    Either option will work, for the first option you would need to put the R2 WAN IP in the DMZ of the Huawei to avoid double NAT. Either way QoS will work very well as long as you connect all devices to the R2.

    Netduma R2 rebooted suddenly

    When I was using the 5ghz sometimes the signal drops to 2 bars so I think I'm close to being far from the router. So I bought a 50 feet ethernet.

    PS4 NAT 1

    Hey, welcome to the forum! NAT Type 1 is when you are directly connected to a modem, you cannot get this when connected through a router. NAT Type 2 means it is open and behind a router.

    I'm not sure if this is more of an actual modem software feature but I'd love the ability to be able to set a custom DNS server, I know the actual modem software technically lets you do this however it's a predefined list. I'd also like to see more analytics in the connection benchmark, maybe a graph that pings a server (e.g. Telstra DNS) every minute or so in order to be able to see the stability of your connection.

    Port foward errors

    I think it is probably to prevent you from assigning ports to it but yes that is strange, thanks for bringing it up!

    For my part what I use the most is: 1 - The Geo-filter (to know the location of the server) 2 - Auto ping (to know the quality of the server) 3 - Benchmark connection (to find out if my line is optimal)

    Where are you seeing this happen on the game ping or on the Geo-Filter ping?

    I seemed to have “fixed it”... here’s what I did: unplugged everything including coax cable from modem, factory reset both modem and router multiple times. Gave up on it last night, woke up today reset everything once again but tried a different LAN port (yellow one) from my Duma to the PC and it seems to be able to obtain a WAN and is working again.... I tried the old port and it is still working.... so it just randomly fixed itself overnight I guess.... very reassuring....

    Same issue with the XR500. Years before firmware update. I’m not happy with Netduma anymore. Starting to get old. Might need new programmers 😐 Just sayin. “Due to catching a few last-minute issues, we have to delay updates until next week: we'll be working over the weekend to iron them out. Delays suck, but it's all to ensure you get solid updates instead of saying "that'll do". No half measures!”

    Warzone packet loss fix with tcp

    So I've been having massive issue with this lately. When I start a game I get massive packet loss making it unplayable. But it goes away to 0% packet loss when the player count drops to around 70 or less. My guess would be issues with the server, but I tried using a vpn to connect to US game servers and still have packet loss. Strange when you see popular twitch streamers in the US with 0% packet loss. Anyway I started using ExitLag. It allows you to set the number of tcp and udp routes to use. I found that if I set udp to use 0 and tcp to use 1 (effectively disabling udp) the game runs with no packet loss. Which you would expect as tcp does error checking/recovery of lost packets in exchange for higher latency. But I found my in game latency to be exactly the same. So it has effectively fixed my packet loss issue. My question is, is there a way to disable udp and only use tcp for this game the way exitlag does? Maybe on the router, firewall or other software (Netlimiter/glasswire)? I have a XR700. Thanks

    Decided to make the jump from the XR500 to the R2 for the same reason I buy Pixel phones, getting updates from the source. Overall I'm pleased with the R2. I've seen people having wifi issues, and can say SO FAR I haven't had any. Setup was pretty simple, though I noticed it doesn't run a speed test like the XR500. No biggie just something I noticed. Geo filter: for the time being until it gets ironed out I just use the ping assist with my home location set out in the ocean. I feel like this takes out guess work and works pretty well. I tried both the traditional circle and the polygon mode. Though I feel like these aren't at their full potential in the current geo filter state. Something I don't understand is why there's at times a 30ms difference from what the router says the ping to the server is compared to in game (COD:MW). Otherwise I like the R2 and look forward to it's features. Any suggestions on the traffic prioritization? I can add games like Division 2 but now MW? lol very weird to me.
