    pollutionblues reacted to Netduma Admin in Ok it’s been 4 LONG years ...I’m out!!   
    CPU will max out when you use bandwidth speeds >150mbps and QoS is enabled. Here is a guide on how to avoid this: http://support.netduma.com/en/support/solutions/articles/16000076586-dumaos-optimal-settings-guide-maxmimum-bandwidth-speeds
    Best settings for Fortnite are to put the Geo-Filter in Spectating Mode and back out of the lobby when you get a server you don't like. It's easier doing that rather than having filtering mode and waiting for the game to back you out itself (that's obviously how the game is designed, rather than a Netduma feature).
    Finally, you have received a major firmware upgrade to a four year old router for free. And there will be many more development milestones coming this year with more features for R1 users. I don't know many/any tech companies that keep developing new features for products that are over four years old - but we do and we do it gladly.

    Remote access is not currently available on DumaOS but I believe it will be implemented in the future.

    To login to a Netgear router it’s either routerlogin.net or 192.168.1.1
    192.168.88.1 is the IP address of the Netduma R1

    Hi
    Welcome to the forum.
    The best way to stop double NAT is to put your a&t gateway into modem mode (if it has that feature) failing that, put the R1s IP address into your the DMZ of your gateway.
    There is also a guide on getting an open NAT here:

    This.
    If you get stuck at bootup though, and the game won't even load, check the Geo-Filter map. There might be an authentication server you need to Allow. Click on it and Allow it (guide here on how to allow): http://support.netduma.com/en/support/solutions/articles/16000089132-how-to-use-allow-and-deny-on-dumaos
    If you're able to get into the game and search, then make sure your settings are as Pollution Blues said above.

    If you want to force a server in a specific location you need to have: filtering mode enabled, strict mode enabled, ping assist set to 0 and fast search disabled. Restart the game after making any changes then search.

    The likelihood is that you will be connecting to a dedicated server it will just be incorrectly classified as a peer. The easiest way to check is: go into the Network menu on BO4 and look at the long number at the top right of the screen. If the number has an E at the end it’s a dedicated server.

    Hi,
    welcome me to the forum
    There aren’t any game servers in Dublin. The servers in Dublin are used for authentication and other online services that the game needs to get you online.
    I agree the UK servers are terrible, I’ve been forcing servers in France and I’ve had a much better time, the game has actually been enjoyable again on the French servers. Give them a shot, mileage may vary but it’s working for me at the moment.

    Exactly as PB said, your Ping Assist is allowing these connections through. Please see this guide to understand more about this features  and to get it setup optimally: http://support.netduma.com/support/solutions/articles/16000087579--dumaos-optimal-settings-guide-ping-assist

    It’s connecting you to a server outside your radius because you are using ping assist, servers found by ping assist have a dashed circle around them. If you only want to connect to servers inside your radius set ping assist to 0, it’s advisable to use ping assist as it picks up incorrectly located servers.

    pollutionblues got a reaction from Netduma Admin in I live in the UK...why do I get placed on a West Cost Dedicated Server?   
    That is a UK server it’s just incorrectly located in the Netduma cloud database so it’s showing in the wrong place. You have been connected to it by the ping assist feature (servers found by ping assist have a dashed circle around them)
    If you only wanted to connect to servers within the geofilter radius you would have to set ping assist to 0 but I would recommend leaving ping assist enabled so you can connect to local servers although they are incorrectly located on the map.
    If you post the details of incorrectly located servers in this thread then they can be added to the cloud:
    Im assuming you are playing Black Ops 4? The in game connection meter also includes things like processing delay that is why it varies so much in game to what you see on the geofilter. The geofilter is the most accurate representation of your ping to the server.
