    UK_Wildcats_Fans reacted to Od1n in NEW FEATURE ANNOUNCEMENT: CONNECTION BENCHMARK   
    When will we be able to change the congestion algorithm that the R1 uses? In the last few seconds of this Netduma announcement video you can see the download graph and it looks like Cubic Congestion Control is used. This is sub-optimal for gaming since it doesnt consider roundtrip time or other metrics that are relevant for gaming devices in your network. And using Cubic is probably also the reason for why we are forced to set our connections to 70% to prevent congestion.
    Ages ago Iain claimed to have created a congestion control algorithm that in his lab allowed him to max out his complete connection while his ping only spiked by 5 milliseconds. Googles BBR Congestion Control is very close to what he promissed, is out for several years now and could probably be implemented very quickly by you guys.
     
    For those who dont fully understand what i mean here is a picture from google:
    In the last few seconds of the Netduma Video above you can see the bandwidth graph which basically looks like left graph below in the picture. This is bad and causes lag. What you want is the right graph it gives more bandwidth AND less lag. It has some downsides but those could be adressed by the R1 only assigning BBR to gaming devices for example.

    For your console, the quality of the connection is usually way more important than the bandwidth. Many games don't really use much bandwidth. I would recommend using the cat 5 cable.

    UK_Wildcats_Fans got a reaction from dizzeespellz in XR500 - Automated Scheduled Reboot Feature   
    I have previously requested scheduled reboots.  With technology (especially software) complexity and problems will exist.  Yes, it would be great to have a stable platform that does not require rebooting.  However, we have to consider reality and problems will exist.   
    From a personal perspective I believe the scheduled reboot should be an added feature that can be used as a tool for the user.  My wife and I both work from home.  I am constantly on WebEx conferences using my laptop and headset.   I have found that DHCP lease renewals can cause issues (stops and stutters in my WebEx conferences).   As a safeguard and means of testing, I started rebooting my modem and XR700 daily or just before my conference call.  This has dramatically reduced the frequency of the stuttering and stops problems.  
    It is not realistic to believe that we will not have problems; therefore, we need all the tools that we can get to reduce the magnitude of the problems.

    UK_Wildcats_Fans reacted to SpicyCarrot1550 in How to remove offline devices from router?   
    Hello. Since I had the same issue as OP, and this appears to be the only relevant search result for it, I figure I'd document how I corrected it:
    (Be advised, that this is almost certianly not "supported" by NetDuma or Netgear, and should not be attempted if you do not understand what you are doing. I take no responsibility for anything that results from you attempting any part of these instructions.)
    1. Go to http://routerlogin.net/debug.htm (and log in)
    2. Check to box to "Enable Telnet"
    3. Use a telnet client to connect to "routerlogin.net" (If you don't know how to do this, you might have to search for how to do so on your OS.)
    4. Login using the same password that you use for the router's web interface
    5. You should see a "DUMA OS" banner and a prompt ("[email protected]:/# ")
    6. Enter "./dumaos/clear-device-manager.sh" into the telnet session (and press enter. It should look like "[email protected]:/# ./dumaos/clear-device-manager.sh")
    7. Wait until you see "You can safely pull the plug now!". You can now close the telnet session and reboot the router (using the physical button on the back)
    8. Wait until the router has rebooted completely (all the lights should be white)
    9. Visit routerlogin.net again (and log in, again). All offline devices should now be cleared from the Device Manager
    10. The telnet interface should have automatically disabled itself when the router rebooted; however, you can verify this by going to http://routerlogin.net/debug.htm again.

    (Note: If your router is not easily physically accessible, you could enter "reboot" (and press enter) into the telnet session instead of using the physical button in step 7; however, I've only tested this once.)
     
    Hopefully this functionality will be accessible through the DumaOS web interface soon:)

    UK_Wildcats_Fans got a reaction from BERNARDINO DE AGUAS in Server Connection   
    I live in San Diego, California.  While COD gaming,  I typically see a ~15mS ping to LA servers ot ~25 to northern CA.   I sometimes play with friends on the east coast (geo filter off)  with typically 50-75mS pings.   Recently, I have been playing COD BO4 (f'ing Modern Warfare) solo with a small geo filter to avoid a bad Nevada server and ping assist at 30mS.  This typically would let me play on some good servers in Texas or mid country.  With a ping assist of 30mS, I should never get an east coast server.  I have been getting these very weird, very intermittent games lately and noted that I am getting an east coast server with about 17mS ping.  This does not seem possible.  I did a lookup of the server and it belongs to Total Server Solutions LLC out of Atlanta, GA.   When I ran ping plotter, I was getting 10-50mS pings.  
    See the attached screen shots of geo filter and ping plotter.  Is it really possible to go 2100 miles (~3300 km) with a 10mS minimum ping?
    FYI- I have blocked the server now, because it was too intermittent.

    I had similar issues with my xr700. If you look at System Information then Logs, you may get more information on what is happening. For me, I was seeing a lot of lease issues that correlated to the slow downs. I setup reserved ip addresses for just my critical devices (i.e. Ps4, work laptop, gaming  laptop, cell phone).  This resolved my issues.  As others have stated, I should not have to do this. I believe this is more of a Netgear issue.

    UK_Wildcats_Fans reacted to Killhippie in ANNOUNCEMENT: The Future of DumaOS: Version 3.0   
    I appreciate the more transparent side of things here now, Fraser. I still think your devs have patching backwards, I know of no other company that releases new operating systems without patches for their software in between major releases. Its just seems to me a retrograde way of doing things. Apple have just released macOS Catalina and its buggy, now imagine if no point releases came until next year with macOS 10.16 Users would go mad and Apple would never sell another computer probably, same for iOS, Android, Windows, Linux etc.  That is just not how you do things in my view and no matter what the new version hopes and expectations are it will have bugs, you cant make bug free software, its impossible.

     I'm just hoping DumaOS 4.0 or another incarnation of DumaOS wont be the fix for DumaOS 3.0's bugs.  Until I can see a point release path rather than 8-12 month gaps between updates to fix issues with DumaOS software pushed to Netgear hardware, I've had to remove the XR500 as my daily driver for now and box it up. I'm aware this may not be all your fault believe me, and I know you guys work really hard and I will continue to help where I can, but the XR development cycle in my view is unacceptable as it stands. I look forward though to seeing what your plans are with DumaOS nevertheless. Right time for more more coffee

    Thank you for your response.  All these years with the R1 and now XR700, I never really played with ping assist.  I either used geo filter with ping assist at 0 or geo filter disabled.  Just another case of user error and forgetting things in my older age.

    UK_Wildcats_Fans got a reaction from Netduma Alex in Ping Assist   
    Fast Search is off.  Because of the initial problems, I have been watching the host ping when I first start games.  From what it displays on the screen, the host ping starts above the 30mS limit.  Most of the time, the connections are in Texas. I have been gaming with the COD servers for years, and typically Texas connections are around 40mS .  I would not expect that connection to be lower than 30mS.  For that reason, I changed my ping assist to 25mS and 20mS for different tests.  It still allowed me to connect to servers with higher pings.  In one instance, it connected me to a New York server, which was about 70mS.

    I have the XR700 with the last firmware and playing BO4.  Once you lose host connection or simply get into a lobby, the entire graph  and history is gone.  I wish it would keep the historical information and simply show a sign of no host found.  This would allow me to see what was happening before host was lost or get into the lobby.  It would also be nice to have the option to have a long chart time frame.

    As a standard practice, I am do a factory reset after each upgrade.   Manually configuring the settings again is not too time consuming with the EXCEPTION of the reserved IP addresses.   I would love the option to export the reserved IP settings (or whole LAN settings) and then import them once configured.  This would save a lot of time

    I have seen the same thing on Android.  Software Developers create their own ROM and share it out of goodwill.  They then have to spend lots of their own time helping others and getting negative responses forcing many to stop sharing.

    I usually get dedicated servers, but I have been getting more p2p lately.  I believe that it has to do with the number of people playing the specific game modes.  For example, I tend to get dedicated severs  on the more popular games modes core modes and hardcore TDM.  When I try hardcore domination or kill confirmed, I often get a p2p.
