    Being close to the cabinet does not make your ping lower it will however give you a lot of SNRM headroom.
    Being close to your ISP and your ISP having good routing will give you the lowest ping.

    It could be that your old cable was faulty, or perhaps you were using something lower than cat6 or 5e.
    Either way i'm happy that you've got crispy crispy games, but it's worth bearing in mind that the XR500 and XR700 can't handle more than 1gig on a port, and even if they could, games uses so little bandwidth that it would be unlikely to affect the crispiness.

    Placebo effect...no difference between Cat 6 to Cat8 (at 1Gbps speeds) and less in ping values.

    It's Netduma that have not updated the XR500 with DumaOS patches, not Netgear. Netduma hold the licence for their product, Netgear cant magically patch it for them. The reason you have not seen a Duma update since December 2018 when Milestone 1.3 came out is because they didn't patch their product which is still beyond my comnprehension, I have never seen a comany create a OS then not offer patches for the problems that plagued Milestone 1.3 Also they decided to in the middle of doing milestones to change direction and re-write the OS and along came DumaOS 3.0, so why are you blaming Netgear?  Its a Netduma's code that needed patching, Netgear sat waiting for code to do something with I imagine After all the hardware in the XR500 is only a R7800 with a bit more Flash NAND the hardware is 5 years (Soc IPQ 8065) even though the PCB's are new, so it should all be pretty stable by now as far as drivers etc.

    Using DMZ means that it will have all its router ports open and respond to internet queries and pings though, that must weaken security surely, because the router you are using as a modem is now open to attack and this is the primary connection to your ISP. I see your point about the firewall but its still in my view reduced the level of security of your network. A straight modem or fully bridged router is always going to be safer.

    Or get a modem, its so much simpler and more secure. With DMZ you identify your network areas. Internal: critical systems; DMZ: systems you can afford to be "exposed", systems you want to host services to the outside world, e.g. your SSH hosts; External: the rest of the world, you set up these separate areas on your network. Your firewalls/routers are then configured to allow direct connections from the outside world only to the DMZ. Correspondingly, your internal systems should be able to connect only to the DMZ and access the outside world via HTTPS, application proxies, mail relays etc. there. Your firewall rules should reflect these decisions by blocking the corresponding traffic directions/IPs/ports: e.g. inward allow only ports for services operating in the DMZ etc. Ideally you should configure any services exchanging information between network areas (internal, DMZ, external) to be initiated from the most secure network segment to the less secure areas, e.g. If you need to transfer files to "inside" hosts have the inside systems initiate the transfer (have the client role, rather than the server role).
     Basically with your network, a zone (demilitarized zone) may be a physical or logical sub-network that separates an inside native space network (LAN) from different untrusted networks, sometimes the net. External-facing servers, resources and services are placed within the zone so that they are accessible from the net however the remainder of the interior computer network remains unreached. This provides an extra layer of security to the computer network because it restricts the power of hackers to directly access internal servers and information via the net.

    @Crlsn so is your vodafone router in modem mode because if not, you may face double nat issues which is one of the reasons which is why you should use a modem as you would essentially be double routing. Pretty sure you would lose some speed aswell but dont quote me.

    https://kb.netgear.com/30186/What-is-Double-NAT

    One of the ways of getting around double nat is by setting the DMZ IP address on your vodafone router to the address of your XR500 as it forwards everyport to your XR500 which then manages itself but in my opinion the modem is the more elegent solution as its just plug and play.

    Exactly what iMoD1998 said. You need a modem. If you cant get past the modem stage or understand why you need one, maybe this isn't the best router for you. Please note I mean no offence its just you may struggle with the XR500's settings. Just to help clarify you have modem routers which are routers with a built in modem, like your Vodafone unit. Then you have routers like the XR500 and they need a separate modem because they don't have one built in.

    So you connect to your Vodafone router from the hole in the wall? That means the router has an internal modem.
    You have two options at this point:
    Obtain a standalone modem for your connection type. I personally use a Draytek Vigor. It didn't take any configuration on the modem itself, I just had to enter my PPPoE details on my Netduma router. However, I have BT Infinity, so perhaps your results would vary? Set up your DumaOS router underneath your existing router. In order for this to work, you'll want to disable WiFi on the Vodafone router, and make sure that the only connected LAN device is the DumaOS router. Connect a LAN port on the Vodafone to the WAN port on the XR500. Once you have internet on the XR500, connect all of your devices to it. You may need to configure DMZ on the Vodafone router after this to get rid of Double NAT errors. I can help you to do that.

    These are the new Qualcomm 6E chipsets, the Pro 1200 supports AX speeds of 1.2Gbps on 2.4Ghz and 4.8Gbps on 5Ghz. The 6E chipset supports a third channel at 6Ghz just for AX devices, and the 1200 Pro cant be updated to that by firmware.  https://www.snbforums.com/threads/qualcomm-rolls-out-wi-fi-6e-lineup.64418/

    they have a line monitor tool just in case it’s that and a fairly good speed test tool. I’m not a fan of DSLreports. I’m on BT and they have a very well known issue that has created havoc on their forum for a long time.
    If I’m honest I never used QoS that much when I had the 500 up and running and played a fair bit of Blackout but their servers and that lag compensation drives you mad.

    I think what happened was they posted they would make an announcement and then people assumed it was 3.0 and it grew like Chinese whispers.  
    ive seen comments on YouTube where people have posted that Netgear told them 3.0 is out which as we know is total rubbish but people want to believe it. 
    I am surprised though with the general lack of interest on the forum, very few posts showing interest.

    One thing, if there was a big security hole in the XR500 Netgear would have issued a hotfix like they did with the XR700, do dont take out that on Netgear, security is up to date as of 3 June 2020. Also Netgear can't put out Netduma 3.0 if Netgear don't have it can they? Updates for DumaOS come from Netduma, how would Netgear add Netduma updates if there were none to add?  As to the R1 you are lucky Netduma still support it tbh so really what's the point of getting so upset over a lump of plastic and metal, be grateful its coming to the R1 and anyway its a beta so its not like everyone is going to get it at once. You choose to ditch the XR500 and XR700 so no point in getting upset after the fact. Maybe you should have kept one and waited? As far as software being bad, all router makers have good and and bad points, basically its not worth getting upset over.

    That would mess up using say Thinkbroadband's firebrick which monitors your line. Anyone can see a router online because any set of IP addresses which are not visible are either offline or steathed hence the port scans as no reply will mean stealth mode generally. Its all okay and nothing to worry about as everyone gets DoS style attacks in Netgear logs which are paranoid and port scans are very common.
