  1. This is a great response. I'd really recommend undoing that list and going back to using DumaOS classified games as it will detect all UDP traffic on any consoles connected to the router (or PC's with a console device type e.g. Playstation). Thanks for the tick rate issue. A little odd that one, we'll look into it.
  2. Yes you can enable UPNP too, it shouldn't cause any problems. Try that and see if you have an Open NAT afterwards. Also I'm not sure if this has been said by Fraser yet, but have you put your modem into Bridge mode? Or made sure all ports are forwarded to your router? Follow this guide please: If you still don’t have an open NAT even though all the required ports have been forwarded, you may need to use DMZ on your ISP Modem or on your DumaOS powered router. First check if the Modem/Router has Modem or Bridge Mode as this is preferable over DMZ mode. To put your DumaOS powered router into the DMZ of your ISP Modem, first navigate to System Information. On the Internet Status panel, highlight the number next to ‘WAN IP Address’ and copy it. Next, head to the interface of your ISP Modem and go to the Security / Firewall Settings. You should see a box labelled ‘DMZ IP Address’. Paste the WAN IP Address into this box and make sure DMZ is enabled. You have now successfully put your router into DMZ mode.
  3. Tricky one for us to help with this as it's hardware related, so more a question for NETGEAR than ourselves but we will try to help. What happens when you remove the XR500 from the equation? My gut feeling is it may be slow due to the Wireless Bridge mode as the default WiFi speeds are usually outstanding.
  4. Do you by any chance own a Nintendo Switch? Another poster has this problem and he thinks it may be the cause? If you do, could you try connecting the Switch and then quickly go to Device Manager. From there, change the Nintendo Switch Device Type to a PlayStation or Xbox. This won't negatively affect your experience and may solve your problem.
  5. Ok that is very interesting, thank you. We will try and reproduce this error ourselves. In the meantime, are you able to connect the Switch to the router and then access the Device Manager? If so, please set the device type to an Xbox or Playstation. This won't negatively affect your experience and may solve the problem
  6. Locking this thread as it has degenerated into an e-argument. OP - please create a new thread if you require any further support.
  7. Hi there - just answered this in your other post, but definitely via the XR700 so you can use all the DumaOS features to optimise your game's connection
  8. Hmm, that's an odd one. Simplest thing to do here is to downgrade back to this firmware: https://kb.netgear.com/000060127/XR500-Firmware-Version-2-3-2-32 Then upgrade back again: https://kb.netgear.com/000061157/XR500-Firmware-Version-2-3-2-56 Hopefully that fixes the issue. If not, could you factory reset the router (as a last resort) as that should then solve the problem. https://kb.netgear.com/000053098/How-do-I-perform-a-factory-reset-on-my-Nighthawk-Pro-Gaming-router Let us know how you get on.
  9. Hi there - not sure I fully understand the question, but I think you're saying that you have two consoles on the same network but you are not able to get to party chat. Could you make sure UPNP is enabled on your XR500 - I'd also recommend deleting any port forwarding rules and DMZ as this may confuse your router and mean only one console works fully and the other does not.
  10. Hi there - do you mean the region for the hardware in general? If so, this is a question for NETGEAR, I'm not sure if there is an easy way to change it. The same for HT160 - this is not a DumaOS setting but a NETGEAR setting. Please could you try contacting their support here: https://www.netgear.com/support/contact.aspx Or asking on their forum here: https://community.netgear.com/t5/Nighthawk-Pro-Gaming-Routers/bd-p/en-home-nighthawk-pro-gaming-routers
  11. Hi there - it's the just open source element DumaOS is built on. DumaOS itself is in userspace and therefore proprietary i.e. closed source.
  12. Via the XR700, then you can use all the features for gaming
  13. Are they increasing in the High Priority row or the other row? And is your PS4 been given the device type of a Playstation in the Device Manager? It should have been given this by default, but something might have gone wrong...
  14. That's really strange because none of the connections are being blocked, so it shouldn't really be the Geo-Filter causing problems. Does this happen every time? Could you try again today for example and let us know if the problem happens again. Also, could you make sure UPNP is enabled (go to Settings to do this)
  15. That should work fine - they will both share the same settings on the Geo-Filter. Obviously you need to make sure you add both of them to the Geo-Filter device table. Happy to hear you are enjoying being on the forum! Let us know if you have any other questions.
