    Killhippie got a reaction from Netduma Admin in IP packet Fragmentation PS4   
    Never got rid of that message on the XR500 and its been reported enough, it was also present on the R7800 and was never fixed and to be fair I have seen it on other routers, it takes ages getting NAT type normally then gives that warning. Possibly a firewall issue maybe you could try without DoS protection although they are Netgears own additions to the firewall they cause issues like filtering ICMP on IPv6... Never had issues playing though so you should be fine. I would leave the settings as they are tbh.

    Not always as and Netgear advise doing it though the pinhole and holding it for up to 30 seconds, so worth a try. Both are listed but over the years I have always found the pinhole one works best. Also re downloading the firmware you are using and re installing it may help

    I had this issue I thinks it’s something to do with the router as the R7800 it’s built off does it too. My RAX120 does not give me that message and that’s with a mtu of 1492 and PS4 on auto. Saying that I never had issues playing with that message either.

    I agree with a lot of what has been said here.. I can say this.. Anytime you have two separate firmware's running on any router and developed from two separate developers there is very little chance for success. This is why you don't see this type of combination in other routers. They know better. Your always better off sticking to a router that controls its own firmware completely.. That's why Netgear routers work better on there own and that also goes for the R1 working better on its own. Each are run on there own full firmware.  When I found out about how the XR series routers were running one firmware on top of another... I said oh boy!! This is going to be a nightmare.. And it has turned out exactly as I had figured.. One sloppy mess! 
    This isn't at all like running a third party firmware on a router either. Because a lot of your third party firmware developers just fix what is broke in stock firmware. And tweak certain things to make them better. And all of this is done in a much more timely fashion. You cant say that at all with any of the XR series routers.. If there is a bug your SOL. There are bugs in the XR series routers that have been there for almost a year!! That is completely unheard of by any standards to go that length with zero attempts of patches.
    My prediction on the new 3.0 firmware isn't some shinny bright star either. There will be attempts for some bug repair. But I don't think much bug repair will be done until after the release of 3.0 After that they will try and focus on repairs because god only knows what these new features will bring in for bugs on there own. The more I look into this the more I find it very hard to believe one will ever have a stable type router. Just to many things to go wrong with this type of configuration. And it would be to costly and time consuming to keep such a configuration running stable.. For those that are Netduma fans and supporters Id just wait for the right time for when Netduma ever decides to launch there own new router with there very own full firmware operating system where you can get 100% support at one place.. So much easier that way and it will be much more realistic and less problematic.
    Make no mistake Netduma is a fantastic developer! But they will be much better served on there own where they can actually have full control..

    I have found that it helps in the past. I'm pretty sure that updates are in fact incremental. I would like there to be a recovery option which would wipe everything and then install firmware.
    I would recommend downgrading to this version: https://kb.netgear.com/000060213/XR700-Firmware-Version-1-0-0-20

    So Dynamic IP addresses from the ISP are causing the XR500 to crash and static ones dont? The mind boggles at how that happens, I guess its under a certain set of parameters that many users don't use, otherwise Netgear would be having a tidal wave on their hands with this.

    Killhippie got a reaction from Netduma Fraser in Problems are not ending with XR500   
    I did a bit of research into this considering a UPS (uninterrupted power supply) can run servers and have their own built in brownout, surge and AVR  (Automatic Voltage Regulation) especially on pure sine wave models. Power strips with surge protection are a good idea for the safety to the connected device too. Basically all plugs will get the same access to power. Your main outlets themselves are technically power strips too. In general several wall sockets or outlets share a run of wire back to the power source, the external power strip/surge protector or UPS is no different, it just provides more connection points to the same electrical circuit. However, the total circuit capacity is neither increased nor decreased by a power strip/surge protector.
     Devices draw current based on their needs, for example a motor generally draws more power when loaded than when spinning freely. If the total draw exceeds the circuit capacity, a protective device will trip. The protective device is usually a 32A MCB or in a residential ring main with 2.5mm wiring, in the UK. Other countries wiring codes may vary. A ring main is like a scaled up power strip/surge protector basically. Extra connections or total extension cord length can have a minor effect, this effect is usually negligible. A word of warning is always use the right power strip for the job as a long thin cord with a heavy load can heat up, using up some of the electricity in transmission, the wire becomes an electric resistance heater which you don't want so never exceed the power strips total load which in the UK is generally 13amp.

     If you have a gaming rig, or a console that cost good money get a UPS of the right size by a reputable company like APC or others, yes they cost a few hundred pounds but the electricity is clean, no drops in power (brownouts ) surge protection and AVR so smooth power is always provided and if the power goes off will keep going long enough for you to turn things off, before damage occurs or data loss, and attached to a computer it will turn off automatically (my iMac has the feature to recognise a UPS) and you can set how long you want it to stay on until a percentage or time on the UPS power is reached. I think windows does the same, or you can load up whatever software comes with the UPS. My 27" iMac, modem and router and printer and speaker system are also connected to one or three I have so if the power goes down I can use the net happily until it comes back up (as long as its not over 4 hours)

    Find a R7800 second hand, they have much better Wi-Fi than the XR500. No idea why but something Netgear did antenna wise on the XR500 reduced throughput especially over 5Ghz and also coverage wise compared to the R7800 yet they are technically the same router. Also the R7800 can use high gain antenna if needed, as it has standard mounts unlike the XR500's.

    Killhippie reacted to Zippy in High Priority Traffic possible bug with Indicator light?   
    Im not a fan of the tunneling port either. And I do believe that is correct Teredo tunneling. Something MS added to help the transition from IPV4 to IPV6. Once IPV6 is full on and or Native IPV6 can be used one will no longer need the tunneling port 3544. Currently the port number ones console is using gets tunneled to 3544 the minute one turns there console on.. So example of this would look like this 3074 console port to Destination port 3544. UDP. Before IPV6 was a thing there would be no 3544. It would have been 3074 to 3074 or whatever ones console port is to 3074 UDP.. The thing is about this is even if one turns off IPV6 on our end we still get ran through a tunneling protocol. That is something we cant help. What I would like to know is what parts of DumaOS aren't compatible with IPV6?? Is it just the Anti Buffer Bloat? Or is it all of the QoS? Or is it everything?? I may have to do more digging into this because I see the MS server in my Geo Filter pop up as IPV6.. If that's the case then MS is assigning me a IPV6 address through there tunneling protocol.. Which can cause extra latency or odd game play.. So then the question becomes does one enable IPV6 regardless to avoid this..

    Was not graphical on mine as my antibufferbloat settings stayed applied with the light on, no rules added, Jack. Just DumaOS classified games ticked and unticking them , turning off antibufferbloat and even QoS didn't stop the issue it was just in a frozen state thinking something was high priorty traffic I even had a friend pull the plug on my TV etc and I turned off all the wifi devices and it still stayed on, always had to be a reboot and since I'm in a wheelchair and my router is high up that was really hard work if in the end a reset (using the reset button on the back always seemed to give a cleaner reset oddly enough) was needed as it seemed to do it more and more often until a factory reset was performed and then it would be okay for a while, until a long gaming session on Destiny 2

    Killhippie got a reaction from Netduma Alex in XR500 Blocking updates access to apple & Microsoft ...why ?   
    It’s just after a update where are you’ve had a security patch like this sometimes a factory reset puts the router back to the way it came so you know you haven’t got any glitches or bugs from the update procedure and if you set up keyword blocking then that could explain a lot, factory reset would’ve removed that as it’s not enabled normally. Keyword blocking would probably cause an issue, and maybe if that had been mentioned earlier we might of been able to hopefully sort the issue out. Netgears site blocking has always been a bit dodgy hence I mentioned was there any sites or anything enabled. Hopefully that should kill that issue, hopefully

    Thanks Jack. You might be right about it being graphical. I am going to get my router back to the stuck High Priority Detected indicator and confirm if bufferbloat is actually applying the whole time after game is closed. I will let you know what i find.

    The High Priority Traffic indicator light 100% stays on with F5 refresh. I also tried multiple browsers and clearing the cache. It just stays on until reboot when its stuck.  
    I have the problem with Apex Legends and Battlefield V on PC which are the only 2 games i play right now. I have no rules added to Traffic Prioritization. I have my PC added as a Console using DumaOs Classfield Games enabled.

    I'm going to see if we can investigate this issue with High Priority getting stuck - we'll test it with Apex and Destiny 2 for good measure. It's possible that the issue is graphical but I can't really speculate until we take a look.
    Could you guys confirm whether this persists when you hard refresh the page (F5)? Also @Zippy, could you let us know which game this happened to you on? If anyone has experienced this while playing another game let us know.
    If any of you guys have added your own rules to Traffic Prio, please let us know that as well. The more information we have, the faster we'll be able to get to the bottom of it!

    Hey, welcome to the forum!
    Good advice above. In System Information does the router show that it's getting a WAN IP at all? Also in Settings > Internet Setup have you tried switching it from auto and putting in the details manually?

    Killhippie got a reaction from UK_Wildcats_Fans 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
