  2. Thanks for getting back, was mostly irritated with Black Ops 4. I like this community and like the router just wish it did what it is supposed to do on PS4. It's hard getting into "great" lobbies where pings and everything is low. What's weird is sometimes not using router my ping gets around 40 ms. I know it's most likely a Black Ops server issue. See I'm in Reno, NV and closest server is probably around Portland OR. Also one in San Diego CA. So it also could be a West Coast problem. My internet speed is 975mbit down and 40mbit up. Yeah terrible upload for gig internet but it's Spectrum 🥺. Yeah I'll hold off and check out the news cause I know this could be an even better router. Something else that was spoken about by me and others will there be an "app store"? Because I know there are intelligent devs out there that can create great apps. Thanks again for the reply. 🙂
  3. Come on guys this router has been out for awhile and it's useless. I bought this router to lower my ping OR to be able to play with people and not have lag problems. There is nothing different from this router and any other basic router because when you enable features you can barely find lobbies OR with ping assist to auto it puts me in Japan servers. Really?? I'm in USA. I've reset it numerous times. I can't set ping assist to anything lower than 50 or I can't find a lobby. I can find 50ms servers with a regular router seriously! We paid a good amount of $ which we thought was an awesome router but it's no different than any other. You only update features, bug fixes every 2-3 years so looks like I'll have to go with a different gaming router. I made the mistake of selling my R1 Netduma router just to buy xr500. It had same features and bugs. Not that I would want the R1. You guys say you listen to feedback but I don't think you really do. Look how many people that made these kinds of posts and nothing has changed. Oh and on another thread it said "stay tuned next week for next major update". It's next week and I don't see anything. You should say in "earth" time what date or time you really meant by next week. Next year? I'm not trying to gripe and all that but you guys have us waiting like something is gonna get fixed. Anyone interested in XR500 let me know. Cause it's time to move on.
  4. While I think this it is a good idea to release something a little cheaper don't you think you should fix the problems with current Dumas before releasing something that will be half broken like the rest? I'm a big fan of Netduma but come on it doesn't work that good. I have an xr500 and it reboots sometimes like 3-4 times a day. I've tried all fixes that you guys recommended for others and it's a no go. Factory reset, all that stuff. I have gig internet and im starting to think a regular router might be better. I have to disable sometimes just to be able to play. Also the features only work in some modes of games and not others. Just my 2 cents. I was one of those guys that had an R1 and got tired of all the promises of waiting for Dumaos to release so I sold it, well I ended up getting XR500 cause I'm a sucker haha. How about more features like app store where others can develop addons? It would make the router more fun!!
  5. Guys just say f' it and sell you Dumas like I did, I'm free once again! <3
  6. So anyways, hopefully we can get an update soon.
  7. I'd have to agree with the thread locking. I ran several clan sites and if things got carried away I'd lock it. I have vBulletin and Xenforo license (barely use them) atm. But yeah, I agree. However, IF its true about R1 and lawyer thing sometimes they are told not to mention anything about it and that could be why they haven't replied.
  8. No I'm not talking about lag, I'm talking about response time. On a 1ms monitor you react faster a split second before them. That's the main problem everyone complains about. https://www.bestbuy.com/site/asus-24-led-fhd-monitor-black/8767099.p?skuId=8767099&cmp=RMX&extStoreId=1014&ref=212&loc=1&gclid=CNHch7mX89oCFV-YxQId0TYPkg&gclsrc=ds
  9. The and are supposed to be faster dns's by caching popular websites and anonymity. It said somewhere that your isp tracks sites you goto and using the dns servers above they only keep for 24 hours then they are deleted. Hopefully that makes sense.

  10. Yeah I already have mine on eBay. Just watching to see if they launch it before it sells. If not its ok, my nighthawk and 400Mbps internet is good enough. In fact when I use Netduma and setting to 100/100 my internet is slower. Disconnect Netduma and my speeds are faster. Latency is my only issue but its ok. I guess if you want new OS you have to purchase new duma router but its not worth it really. If you really want better game play get a 1ms monitor for console. That's all you really need. Nighthawk $200+, R1 $200 I'm not paying for Dumas new router. H*ll to the no.
  11. Hopefully we get the upgrade soon, really looking forward to it. I just don't understand why they haven't updated us on the status of it. They are posting everywhere on this site except this thread.
  12. The way I did it was to first disable GeoFilter, then start a new chat (you host chat), invite them in and add them when they join. Let them know they wont hear you at first. After a couple minutes have them rejoin chat. Then they should be able to join you in game. The reason I said to do it in chat is because you will know all the circles are them. Just ask them what State they are in so you can log their names to locations.
  13. Sorry I don't mean to make another post after the one above but your First modem has more channels which would and could mean faster speeds when they become available with your ISP. Your first modem has 32 channels down and 8 up compared to the tp link which has 8 down and 4 up. ISP's are really starting to do speed upgrades (I'm sure you know). I have Spectrum and just went from 100Mbps to 300. 1 month later another boost to 400Mbps. But man what a difference from the original 100/5 to 400/20. They also over-provision a little so I usually get 440/22.
