    Netduma R2 Is amazing!

    First of all I just want to say thank you for creating one of the best gaming router . I am loving the R2. This router packed with so many features. DumaOS 3.0 is definitely a game changer. Ping heat map, auto detect in QOS, connection benchmark and polygon mode. Definitely a game changer. This is going to be my primary router and one I will recommend this anyone. I received mine you guys can view this amazing unboxing video ‪https://youtu.be/LulLA_hQwx8‬

    NEW R2 FIRMWARE: 3.0.205

    Hey all, hope you’re doing well. Here’s the latest firmware update for the R2 – 3.0.205 (Sounds great, right?) Nothing huge - but it welcomes several stability, security and general cosmetic improvements to your R2. We recommend you make the upgrade and do a full factory reset afterwards, just to make sure you're starting from a clean slate! You can go ahead and download it here: https://www.dropbox.com/s/49gt1wxva9rxame/DumaOS-R2-3.0.205.sig?dl=0 Those that have an R2 on pre-order, rest assured that it will come with this latest firmware pre-installed - if you have any issues or queries, just give us a shout! For the techies amongst you, here's a more detailed change log: System-wide GUI improvements to both cosmetics and Security Increased DHCP cache size to 10000, stopping DHCP from being filled by 1500 requests Improved Traffic Prioritisation for wireless devices Fixed occasional issue where IPv6 devices weren't assigned DHCP IPs DumaOS webserver fixes for improving operating smoothness of GUI Improved DPI detection services Improved Bandwidth Allocation backend

    You asked for it. (Like, a lot.) So finally, here it is: the DumaOS mobile app. Currently supporting QoS, Geo-Filter and Device Manager, with more features to come. Download links iOS: https://apple.co/3kCHZ8H Android: https://bit.ly/2RLQ0vA Please use this subforum to let us know of any issues, or anything we can do to improve the app. NOTE: It is compatible with all routers running DumaOS 3.0. See this tweet from yesterday for the current status of DumaOS 3.0 on each platform:

    smooth cold war

    If you are running DumaOS, and you are getting 60ms ping, then I think you hay have a few settings that may need tweaking And if you are playing on a 60+ms ping, rather than the more common 10-20 in MP and 30ms in warzone, then 'Call of duty' is probably using its algorithm for lag compensation, by throttling the other users faster connections to compensate for your bad one. I'm sure you must be playing on a better connection than 60+ms.... Also, if you dominate 90% of all lobby's you get in, the games 'Skilled Based Match Making' is probably putting you into easier lobby's than it should be I totally understand how people can complain about connection issues, when you have the servers dictating the speeds of the faster connected users over those that are slowing the server down. Its very obvious when this happens (in my experience). This has been covered in great depth on Youtube. For example how Tick rates work in MP compared to Warzone. The servers update 20 times a second in Warzone when compared to 60 times in MP, so you can clearly see why people experience the 'Super bullet' kills that drop you instantly in warzone. This is why the competitive 'money Games' community called for the tick rates to be increased on the servers that these players play on. Any half decent FPS gamer can identify a discrepancy in the way the game performs. For me, its like night and day if there is a problem with the connection.

    Warzone Bot Lobby Servers

    It's worth adding that Geo-filter wasn't designed in this way so you may struggle getting connected to very distant servers, and if you do the latency will likely be very high resulting in a bad experience.

    Hi R2 owners! As our most cutting edge router, the R2 will receive the latest Adblocker lists before other platforms. This means that you may occasionally find that something is blocked which is not supposed to be blocked. For example, you may find that a specific mobile game won't load, or a video streaming site refuses to play. In order to bypass an unwanted block, you have two options: Temporarily pause Adblocker on the device that's experiencing the issue See if you can narrow down exactly which domain is causing the issue, and add it to a manual whitelist If you have problems accessing a useful service, please let us know about it in this thread. I will be able to add domains to the Recommended Whitelist, and fix the problem for all users. Adblocker lists update automatically from the cloud, and we'll be pushing frequent updates to both the Blacklists and the Recommended Whitelist. By reporting in this thread, you'll be helping DumaOS users across all platforms!

    Geofiltre COD WAR : astuce

    Hello les français je voulais avec vous partager une petite astuce concernant le géofiltre de mon XR 300 sur COD WAR. Comme beaucoup d'entre vous, je cherche le réglage optimal pour avoir un jeu fluide ... J'ai fait comme tout le monde, j'ai mis mon géofiltre comme point de départ autour de mon domicile, avec une zone de 500 kms, j'habite en Normandie. le SBMM n'aidant pas, j avais des parties plus ou moins correctes selon le lobby mais très rarement sur des serveurs dédiés, majoritairement des Pairs. J'en ai eu marre et j'ai décidé de placer mon géofiltre sur l'ESPAGNE, à plus de 1000 kms de chez moi, toujours avec une zone de recherche de 500 kms. Et depuis ce temps ma connection est plus fluide, je tombe très souvent sur un serveur dédié où je ping à 25 ms sur la PS4 (9 ms sur le netduma) Essayez et dites moi ce que vous en pensez.....il faut au moins faire 3-4 parties pour voir la différence bonnes fetes.

    LH1000 Arcadyan Open Beta?

    Hey Cameron, we are working on the Arcadyan build now (i've actually got it running myself - playing a bit of COD). We plan to give everyone access to at least a full on us to give us feedback and see if it's good enough. However if there is some interest in a few people with Arcadyan devices joining a early access beta - I can check with the team and see what is possible.

    Hey, welcome to the forum! The router purpose is to find the best connections not for finding games where you're playing against less skilled players

    Hello R2 users, Ping Heatmap is a feature which we will be constantly expanding and improving, and in this thread we'll be taking suggestions for how the feature can be improved. If there are any games missing from Ping Heatmap that you feel should be added, please suggest them here. We will do our best to add them to the list! Bear in mind that some games will be easier to add than others. Also, if any of the current games on the list appear to be failing to connect, or are producing many mislocated servers, please report that as well. By reporting mislocated servers, you will also help us to improve Geo-Filter. Thanks for using DumaOS 3.0!

    Are you seriously saying that with a K / D 3.75 you want to play silver lobbies? With that K / D it is logical and normal that in the lobbies you play they are difficult and hard, what is not normal is that you intend to play in gold or silver lobbies ... I understand that someone like Waka with a K / D of 1.14 and if you get into difficult lobbies, try to get something like that, but you with 3.75? I honestly think it is a absurdity... It's as if you were a first division soccer player and you wanted to play in a local neighborhood league ... some of you really want things that ...😆

    how to get better hit detection

    Ok ladies and gentlemen idk if they fixed the hit detection issue on pc, but my hit detection has been absolutely brilliant like “back in the day” when I first tried port prio. I’ve changed absolutely nothing on my end and I’ve played at least 20 games across servers from Texas to Cali, to Oklahoma with consistent results across all. I haven’t had to deny a server all evening. Kinda makes me want to remove all my denies and start over. For reference my congestion control sliders are set at 98% up and down with never selected. My bandwidth allocation flower has all values equal. Share excess is not checked for up or down. NO traffic prio. I’m forwarding the ports activision lists. Upnp is on. Weird I know but works best for my setup. 🤷🏽‍♂️ DumaOS classified games is on. Geo filter is set to about 500 miles around where I personally live. I think that about covers it. It’s so good right now I hope I don’t have to reboot my router and I hope there’s no update to the game. 🤣 I’m working on lmg’s right now and the M60 is making ppl quit the lobby. I hope y'all have as much luck as I’ve had because this came out of nowhere. 😳

    Lets break this down. I'll explain to you most misconceptions as this is very common. This is how a pro player/coach would analyze what you said as well. "nearly every encounter is me taking damage the moment the enemy appears on my screen without having any time to ADS or with me shooting first but they end up killing me," - You should be already ADS. you aren't suppose to win gunfights if your enemy has peak advantage or if they are ready before you. Bad Fundamentals "Killcam shows them barely getting damaged/shooting me first? " - Kill cams are not an accurate representation of what happened. "More importantly, do you know how I can be one of those players that can out run bullets or shoots first and kills first? "- You need to learn how to camera correctly and how to analyze good angles. But you shouldn't rely on it. Ex: I optimized shotzzy and he doesn't rely on cameras. He is just technically gifted and his reaction time is low. This is why he "Jokes" People. The router isn't going to do it for you. " I don't think optimising your connection to be the best it can be is the way to go. it feels like it has the opposite effect tbh." - False. All Top Players want the lowest latency possible. Don't try to rely on inconsistency. Rely on fundamentals. This is what happens when you listen to "I feel that its better" post instead of statistical analysis. "I have fibre direct to my premises (100Mbps), dumaos shows I ping the servers 6-7ms and in-game it's anywhere from 18-30ms yet it feels like how a 100ms+ match would feel it previous titles."- This is due to bad fundamentals. You are 100 ms behind because you are sprinting into gunfights not centering. The router can't fix things like this. You have to learn and play to improve. "DumaOS and OpenWRT" - It's similar if you have an R2. Based off the same platform. Duma is WAY more user friendly. "My console is hardwired, play on a 1ms monitor, have the necessary ports forwarded and have an open NAT. Even when I'm the only one using my network I still get a poor gaming experience but other users shouldn't matter as I have my console traffic prioritised above all else." - You only tried to optimize up to the router. There is the modem/gateway -> Node -> Aggregator -> ISP -> Backbone -> How your traffic routes (Least expensive route or lowest cost?). There is way more to it. For the netduma, listen to everything Frazer says and the Netduma Staff. Trust me DON'T GO BASED OFF "It Feels Better Post" This will lead to more inconsistency and you will be even more frustrated. Remember, Pro Players never blame their tech. They take personal responsibility. Learn to do this and improve. We all think we are the best at what we do and let ego get in the way. Professionals know they aren't the best and put in hard work to compensate for it. This is what makes them great. Practice, Improve, Follow the Guides, have fun. Netduma didn't make the router to cheat the system. It's to provide you consistency. You aren't suppose to be sprinting and win gunfights. That only works for low skilled opponents. At the highest level, your fundamentals will cost you a tremendous amount of gunfights. Hope this helps! I hope I don't come off harsh or anything. This is not to criticize you but actually tell you the truth and help you improve.

    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.

    Bandwidth Required to Play?

    1mb would be hitting the bare minimum. It’s not so much bandwidth to play the game but it’s the latency it creates. If one Ethernet frame (1500 bytes) of your other devices just started sending from the router, and your game packet arrives at the router. Then at 1mbit link speed it will take your router 12ms to clear that frame before it sends your game packet. At 10mbit upload it would take 1.2ms and at 100mbit it would take 0.12ms, 1Gbit 0.012ms Latency is a function of bandwidth, but with diminishing returns. Ie going from 100 to 200 mbit is not such a difference (0.12ms VS 0.06ms) but going from 1 to 10mbit is a big difference. This is also why I suspect that throttling works for some people, ie when you drop your upload bandwidth to 0.5mbit you are creating 0-24ms bufferbloat for yourself and it’s in fact updating the server later.
  22. 3 points
    No it's not possible without disabling share excess currently - doing this will also restrict all other devices to their allocations as well. We can do that and it has been requested before so will likely make it in down the line.

    Traffic prortization please read

    I have been reading through the comments on this thread and I have seen a few things that came to my attention. 1 was a suggestion to use ports 1 - 65535, this is the exact same as placing your device into DMZ and getting no protection from firewall and is ill advised. The best way to get open nat is to just use upnp. Activisions algorithm changes the lobbies depending on your score,kd etc etc and this is Skill based Match making and no matter what ports or qos or router you use you cannot combat this at all. They screw you over and frustrate the hell out of the players that play this game and dangle the odd carrot to keep you playing, UDP packets are used for gaming and not TCP so priorising TCP packets would be useless in any case. Netdumas routers and sooftwae can prioritise your network traffic but no rouer on the planet can affect the algorithm that is SBMM.

    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.

    I use to have the R1 and it worked flawlessly, but since it didn't have 5ghz, I finally retired it. Used a linksys wrt32x for a couple years worked flawless. Tried out the Netgear XR500 and had major connection issues. No internet, factory reset no internet etc. Finally returned it and went back to the linksys. Just bought the R2 and was having the same issues as the nighthawk. No internet etc, then it finally connected. It stayed connected for about 48hrs, then net died. Restarted router and bam, cant get an ip from the modem. Factory reset, same thing then all of a sudden it would connect. During this time Rapps will barely load. now i get a lot of "This Rapp is not loaded yet, please try again in a minute." Ive disabled ipv6, changed rapps from 3 to 5, tried cloning my Linksys router mac address. Nothing seemed to work. Removed mac clone and now it connected again. Been working for about 48 hours again, now its acting up again with "This Rapp is not loaded yet, please try again in a minute." I'm afraid to reboot the router as it will then revert back to not connected... Right now, Traffic controller is the main rapp not loading at all. restarted pc, used dif browsers, nothing. I really don't want to factory reset again as I have set this up several times already, takes a long time. ISP: Spectrum Modem: Technicolor DPC3216 Speed: 200 down, 10 up I dont know what else to do. I love the dumaos software but it seems there is a conflict somewhere. Any suggestions

    Need help with my benchmark.

    Hi @Logic, I'm Adrian, one of the devs behind Connection Benchmark. First of all, looking at your screenshots your unit seems to be fine, so don't worry. Let me explain what is going on: Your network speeds are very good, but the latency of your connection seems quite unstable (unfortunately, there is a limit on what we can do here, and in this case it seems your ISP's fault). The reason why I think that is because when I look at the Ping (Under Load) stage of the Connection Benchmark test, the idle seems very unstable. What is happening with the Auto-Setup on QoS is that the tool is trying too hard to stabilize your connection, because its trying to ensure you don't get spikes. This is a known issue and something we plan to improve over time. In fact, a new firmware should be coming today (I believe its a matter of hours) with some fixes, including making sure the minimum value set is 1% and increasing the test accuracy. But the Auto-Setup is, in the end, a suggestion. If the speeds given to you are too low, feel free to give yourself a higher percentage (as other people suggest, 70% seems fine). Also assume that depending on the hour of the day your ISP network might vary, so I would suggest decreasing the sliders when you are experiencing lag spikes in games, and increasing them if you feel something (like a Netflix video or a download) is not being as fast as you want it to be. Hope this helps!

    There is a tool from Netgear called "Netgear Switch Discovery Tool" if you run it on your PC it will find the switch on your network and you will see it's IP. Also there is a button on it that takes you directly to the managment interface. https://www.netgear.com/support/product/netgear-switch-discovery-tool.aspx

    This is just my opinion but I don't see a reason why we couldn't have both. Some people prefer a more in depth booklet / instruction guide and some will prefer a quick start booklet and learn on the fly with the guide. I read the guide again and went through the tutorial and I've had the Duma since 2014 but a refresher never hurt anyone, along with the new features. So IMO why not do both because everyone will have different preferences on how they wish to research information, again just my opinion

    Dear all netduma r2 user...

    Hi guys! Honestly, the answer to your question is yes. It is true that if your connection is not good the R2 cannot work miracles, but currently the Qos it has is one of the best I have seen so far, I share some images for you to evaluate. This is with the sliders at 100%, as you see the buffelbloat is pretty crazy This is with the Auto-Setup that it brings in which the R2 makes several tests and is configured with the best speed to improve the bufferbloat And if you are looking for something more refined, you can manually search for the best position of the bars and get a better bufferbloat. As you can see, the appearance has changed a lot compared to the first image. Regarding the Wifi, it is something that is simply to get a correction in the next firmware and surely the Netduma team will correct it. For the rest tell him that it works very well and if you have a family you will hardly notice your use of the network and it brings very cool options such as Traffic controller, adblocker, etc ... Regards!
