AnnonymouS reacted to RADDY1993 in Quality of Service (QoS) | Nighthawk Pro Gaming
See how you can use Quality of Service (QoS) to prioritize your gaming devices for that competitive edge. Quality of Service (QoS), powered by DUMA OS on the NETGEAR XR500 Gaming Router, you won't get bogged down by congestion when others are using your network. QoS works by limiting the bandwidth applications can take while you're playing. This lets your essential gaming traffic to pass through, preventing lag that could make or break your match. Anti-Buffer Bloat limits total upload and download bandwidth that greedy devices could use. Bandwidth Allocation lets you reserve the bandwidth you need, so if your PC needs bandwidth, you can always get it. And Traffic Prioritization uses enterprise-level packet inspection to make sure your game's traffic is the first in the queue.

Very good spot. We thought it was only right to dedicate it to our fallen friend. He out of everyone was one of the most excited about DumaOS and unfortunately he passed before seeing it come to fruition, this way he's a part of it and lives on.
AnnonymouS reacted to XSXS in Xr500 vs Original R1
What do you mean cheap? The physical feel of it? I have the 7800 which is pretty much the same hardware feels like all the other night hawks in my opinion.
If buffer bloat is bad then there is an issue with the Duma OS not the hardware.
Do you update the firm ware with new releases version?
AnnonymouS reacted to jimmy82 in XR500 DUMA OS And R1
Got the router today, set it up with the user guide . Going from the R1 to xr500 I havent seen any difference actually getting destroyed now in WW2 and pubg. Shooting first,Emptying clips,getting insta killed. Oh well I guess I can always go back to the R1.
with the R1 it was much better hit detection,both routers had the same internet speed entered,Both congestion controls set at 70,Auto anti bufferbloat checked.
Just played directly wired from modem to xbox one x,gameplay was alot better,frustrating I spent 300 bucks to have a much worse experience,hopefully its a bug I will go back to the R1 fro now.

Hey RunningOnEmpty, thanks for your thoughts, I will comment on some of them below.
Only one dashboard, so no sharing
I'm not sure what you mean by sharing exactly. Can you describe a sharing scenario?
Dashboard is only accessible after logging into router using Administrator credentials (don't let your kids use it)
I don't understand this point, it is a router interface so you need to login to access it. Could you elaborate?
Gone are the days of using ping as a way to connect to lobbies - set yourself in the ocean and you'll be gaming with the fishes
That can be added in the future but can force servers just like normal if some are not playing how you'd like, you get the same effect. Favourite features from the R1 can be made if Netgear requests it but it is completely different software it is not meant to be a direct copy of R1 software.
No access the see the ping of all of the others in the lobby while gaming, only host or individually selected circles on the map
The R1 didn't show you the ping of all the others in the lobby but peer ping will be something we'd like to introduce assuming Netgear would like that feature.
Not well coded for Firefox - use Chrome (fine for NetDuma, not Netgear)
You're actually on an older version, as far as I am told there will be a new update soon (it's already complete but going through final stages of testing). Script error does not happen in newest version.
There is not VPN Client Support unless you use HIDEMYASS - so, basically, there's HIDEMYASS support
That's nothing to do with us as everything in Settings was done by Netgear. I am sure the Netgear team would add additional services based on demand.
If you have any added Toolbars they can cause the bottom of the Dashboard to be inaccessible
You should be able to scroll down the dashboard assuming there are panels there.
DumaOS on Firefox looks terrible (default scrollbars) and often threw generic script errors on resizing panels that you have to acknowledge
I can't comment too much on the scroll bars but we do want to remove them if possible. Script errors are fixed in the update coming that I mentioned above.
On resizing the Geo-Filter Map, the icons will remain the size used for the beginning panel size unless you refresh the window (make the window larger and you have GIANT icons)
Aware of that issue, I believe icons are not as big on new version. Though a refresh to fix the issue is not bad, future updates will include fixes for bugs found by users as is the way with software by big or small companies.
The grid for the panels is fairly largely spaced and so it limits the layout possibilities
I'm not sure what you mean as you're able to resize and move the panels how you want as well as extend the page downward.
Chrome scrollbars don't have a definitive endpoint - this is only a problem for panels with buttons where one could think that they should be scrolling, but can't
What do you mean by this?
Scrolling is an issue as you'll get caught in any panels with scrollbars, but it does exit once you reach the top of the scrollbar and continue (often an issue with this type of setup)
As you mentioned it's standard with that kind of setup and I think most people would expect that to occur as it wouldn't make sense otherwise.
The Netgear, with the advanced hardware, is meant to be a primary router (a shared device), but the DumaOS seems to be made to be used by an individual.
Multiple people changing settings for one router at the same time wouldn't make sense. The Geo-Filter allows 4 devices to be filtered at a time, Traffic Prioritization can prioritise more than one device at a time so I'm not sure what individual settings multiple people would need to have different.
Having the dashboard inaccessible without Administrator credentials is a definite no-go for anyone wanting to share with family and friends
Have covered this above.

Netgear didn't want this news out until CES. Netduma had zero control over the announcement. Yes it sucks that you bought it now but blaming the company is pointless.
AnnonymouS reacted to XIJMAW in Major Announcement: Netduma partner with NETGEAR to launch the Nighthawk XR500 Gaming Router
I guess we now know why it was so quiet on the update front. Not really your guys fault but was still painful. Glad to see you guys are expanding and this can only mean more great updates in the future with this new partnership. good luck.
AnnonymouS reacted to Netduma Iain in Major Announcement: Netduma partner with NETGEAR to launch the Nighthawk XR500 Gaming Router

AnnonymouS reacted to RL317 in Duma OS idea (if it's not too late to implement) - thoughts?
Obviously the major selling point of the R1 is the unique geofilter. It's a brilliant feature that allows you to find the lowest latency games possible, which in FPS games in particular should be the most important tool in helping overcome one of the biggest problems with multiplayer gaming - matchmaking. Ping assist takes the control you have with the radius feature even further. However I've noticed that getting the absolute lowest latency games possible isn't always the best approach, unless you live far enough away from a server that the lowest latency game you can find has you in the sweet spot.
Many people I watch playing recent titles - IW in particular - have perfectly smooth gameplay on something like 40ms latency, even if they're on some jittery line or dropping packets. Every bullet registers instantly regardless. You've probably seen a lot of my complaining on the forum this year about connecting to my local IW server (UK) on 7ms latency and seeing awful connections thanks to audibly delayed hitmarkers or none at all, jerky aim assist, being visibly behind the action and so on. In IW I've noticed the UK server acts like a matchmaking black hole and if I turn off my geofilter, or just set it up to find the lowest latency games possible, 90% of the time it'll be on 7ms, while everyone from here to Dubai also connects to it. I've wanted to test higher latency games but the only servers I can connect to with reliably are in the UK, Netherlands, France and New Jersey in the US; the former three all offer under 14ms connections - not ideal for my testing - while the latter gives me a perfectly respectable but obviously not ideal 75ms. The Danish, Polish and Russian servers offer 30-50ms which is the ideal range for testing not overly excessive latency, but because of their proximity to the German/Dutch servers it's hard to use the radius feature to connect to them without avoiding those low latency games.
In short, my idea is that Duma OS allows us to not only request games under a certain latency threshold, as the ping assist feature allows us to do so well, but to set a range with a lower and upper limit. This would allow us a greater degree of control over matchmaking, further increasing the appeal of the R1 for serious gamers while also improving our experience in games.
I know many of you probably feel like it'd be too niche a feature, especially if you have no issues finding smooth games with how the geofilter works currently, but if you know how miserably IW and even WW2 have played on under half a frame of latency you have likely given up on playing or have tried server hopping yourself.
Let me know your thoughts. I hope this isn't an unreasonable request as I have no knowledge whatsoever regarding the work that goes into making these kinds of features possible
AnnonymouS reacted to major masingil in Tournament in honour of A7Legit - Suggestions
Whatever we do...we cannot tie the date for the tournament to the release date of OS! HA HA! couldn't let that one pass! I think Fraser is right. It would have to be on a Saturday afternoon, eastern time,maybe like 2 or 3 in the afternoon, to be able to bring the most people's schedules together. In my opinion, I think it would be more in the spirit of the event to play together regardless of distance. The other idea I had was for everyone to start a new player just for the event. so everyone is on the same playing field.
AnnonymouS reacted to thegaurdian1 in Best Gaming Modems [Opinions]
I have a simple question. If it has been answered already I hope maybe you can point me into the right direction. With 2 different threads on the same topic one has already been closed since people can't agree and disagree as adults....My question is which MODEM should I purchase TODAY that is compatible with NetDuma R1 router and hopefully other routers as well. My ISP is Comcast/Xfinity my download is 120mbps and my upload is 5mbps. Thank you to you and everyone else for being helpful and supportive.
SIDE NOTE: My current MODEM is:Arris SB6183
AnnonymouS reacted to xymox in Arris SB6190 Software version 9.1.93V
( sigh )
We did go over this on the other thread. I provided instructions. http://badmodems.com/Tools.htmI provided in depth pingplotter instructions.. http://badmodems.com/PinrplotterInstructions.htm
I can help you here tho. >>EVERY PUMA 6 TESTS THE SAME<<.. So. Your plots will look exactly the same as mine as long as your doing them per the instructions above. I would set interval to 0.05. This will give you a clearer view of the issue. >USE A WIRE< >FOR TESTING REMOVE THE ROUTER- HOOK DIRECT<<.. I have however tested pumas using really old routers from 15 years ago on 802.11B with the router missing a antenna and still clearly plotted the Puma 6 spikes.
>YOU HAVE THIS ISSUE LIKE EVERYONE ELSE< >>ITS IMPOSSIBLE THAT YOURS IS DIFFERENT<<
ALL PUMA MODEMS ARE CURRENTY BROKEN. INTEL HAS CONFIRMED THIS.
What did improve for you was DNS look ups. That improved.
ICMP Ping - and any test based on it - however now hides the issues.
This is exactly how your modem is performing..
In this test I run speed test at the same time as i plotted to show how the modem responds when you do more then one thing at a time. You can see the latency jump WAY up. You can see this does not happen on the Broadcom based modem. The red is where I was swapping modems live.
This is a direct AB, Intel VS Broadcom. The red is where I swapped modems and had to call to have cable co activate the other one.
AnnonymouS reacted to Slipknot31286sic6 in Early Alpha Preview Photo: The new & improved Network Monitor on DumaOS
Ah can't use that with Duma tho. Wish we did jus have access to geo filter or company would sell jus that software. Meh maybe one day. Really only part so far that's nice. Everything else is on dlink gaming router and Asus.
So far geo filter is next to worthless banning people since we don't know circle to graph. So we wait... See what's in store with this network thing
AnnonymouS reacted to iAmMoDBoX in Best Gaming Modems [Opinions]
There are only 3 people here who claim that their Arris modems work fine. You are one of them... Everyone else who switched off an Arris modem has commented on how amazing the new modem is working for them. You haven't used anything except for Arris. That's like saying "I only buy Nike shoes because they are the best!" Well, have you tried any other brand? "No but they are the best, I know it."
Also, the TP-Link TC-7610 works on every major cable ISP in the USA. So your argument about needing something that is compatible with a different ISP is invalid. It goes up to 340 Mbps+ which is faster than any cable internet.
Looking back at XSXS "tests" I found other flaws in his testing which I didn't want to bring up, but since you mentioned him I will. As I previously stated, he is using splitters and attenuators to balance his signal. That's like putting square tires on your car because it goes too fast... Besides that, you can clearly see in his "test" screenshots that he isn't even pinging a reliable IP (Google DNS), let alone the same IP (One is IPv4 and the other is IPv6). So of course it will give different results, plus it's at different times of the day.
Bottom line is this. If you want the BEST possible gaming experience on ANY router with ANY cable ISP in the USA, then the TP-Link TC-7610 is one of the very few modems which offer that. Regardless if you believe it or not... That's not my problem. I'm not here to convince people who are stubborn and insist on something yet they haven't tested it themselves. If you think that your Arris modem works fine for you, then good for you. I'll be here enjoying this:
That's 2ms jitter on a congested, oversold, cable ISP.
