  1. Thanks Bert for your reply.. My tick rate for H5 is 60 host and 60 client.. Those two are always the same for me.. Which is a good thing.. It also makes sense how one could possible see an incorrect tick rate if a packet gets delayed.. H5 for me plays pretty good for the most part.. But once in a great while there will be a game that just seems slow.. Very sluggish..Heavy aim.. Its strange.. I know they have had this issue for sometime and have been trying to correct it.. Thanks again for your reply Bert.. Have a good one! Zippy.
  2. Exactly Bert. Thats what I thought. Im with you.. But are you saying that its possible the Geo Filter is displaying the incorrect tick rate. Or possibly displaying an inaccurate tick rate? Thats the part im confused on.. What struck me by what Ali has said about heavy aim is something ive come across as well in H5.. Just wondering what the cause of this is. Possibly a tick rate issue.. Not sure tbh.. Thanks! Zippy..
  3. Hey @Ali would you be so kind to take a screenshot of your tick rate while playing a game of H5? I want to compare yours to mine.. Thanks! Zippy.
  4. I agree.. Ive seen others post about something similar to this.. But I thought we had no control over Tick Rate.. Whats strange about this case is I think he said he was getting a tick rate of 120.. How is that possible when the game only renders at 60fps? Unless im totally missing something here..The tick rate should be 60 client and host.. Very strange but yet interesting.. Thanks Fraser. Zippy.
  5. Hey Ali, Im a little confused here. What exactly did you say you did to stabilize your Tick Rate? I dont think there is anything one can do to stabilize that.. At least not to my knowledge.. Are you saying your send and receive tick rate is now at 120? @Netduma Fraser Is this possible to do this? Im confused on how he was able to do this.. Thanks guys! Zippy.
  6. I see the R6300 is on the list.. That router there was widely handed out by Spectrum here in the US. Its a freebee Spectrum gave out.. People like free so they rarely ever buy there own.. Specially if it works okay for them yet.. Spectrum being one of the largest ISP in the US makes me wonder how many are still floating around out there.. Good post Killhippie! Zippy.

    Hey kinel, we are in the process from gong to fiber to curb to fiber to home.. Our town has started its own fiber ISP.. We are doing it for symmetrical speeds. I cant say yet for sure latency will be any different.. If it is it will be minimal.. But im excited to get symmetrical speeds.. Im on the broadband board here for our town that has helped build out our CO-OP fiber company.. We have had enough of these Corporate ISP that rely on only there stocks.. Then never invest into there own network.. So we took matters into our own hands.. Zippy..
  8. Good to hear SIM all is well. There doesnt seem to be enough time in the day anymore.. Im always doing something it seems.. That detailed R1 setup video I had always thought you were a spokes person for Netduma at first.. Ha ha good job! Take care! Zippy.
  9. LAN access from remote is what one wants to look for.. Followed by the port and address it connects too.. The top entry you can see 3544 to 3074.. That is a good connection being made.. I dont get that when using UPNP on the XR500.. I only got that by port triggering and sometimes with DMZ.. Thanks! Zippy.
  10. With the XR500 I have mixed results on this as well.. But there was something of interest I found.. When using port triggering I get better results.. One way to verify if the router is working you should see entries in the log of the XR500 that will state what ports are actually getting through.. Here is a screenshot of what it should look like. If you look close you will see what ports are actually being made and used when a connection is established..
  11. SIM has some of the best videos. Specially on this.. He will guide you to the light! lol.. I havent seen him post in sometime though.. Hope all is well with him.. Dig his videos! πŸ‘ Zippy.
  12. Is your modem a stand alone modem only or is it one of those modem router combos in one? If you look there is a conflict because the XR500 states it had to update the ip address to avoid conflict. Set the Netgear to get Dynamic. Then try just a simple power cycle of the Netgear.. Something has changed in your Network that cause the XR500 to do that. Something in front of your Netgear.. Thanks! Zippy.
  13. Hey RJHart, Im assuming you bought an R1? Im not entirely sure one can connect a hotspot like that to the R1. But im sure the Netduma folks would be able to help and tell you. Also I don't think the R1 is compatible to run IPV6 atm. To help I will tag a few gents that should be able to give you the answers your looking for. @Netduma Alex or @Netduma Fraser One of these guys should be able to help you! Good luck! And welcome to the forum! :) Give them sometime to respond. Thanks! Zippy.
  14. Hey @Ali The in game ports ive used is 30000-30040 UDP. Those would go in the destination. So you would just use one manual rule. Games console and DumaOS classified games would all be disabled. And any other manual rules you may have added.. And the only thing that would be enabled is this one manual rule you would add yourself. This may work for you if you want to try it. Cant say for certain it will work for you but it might be worth a try. You would add a manual rule and leave the source port range default to whats already there. And add these ports ive mention for destination. Starting port 30000-Ending port 30040. UDP.. These are the ports ive captured with wireshark. So it maybe worth a shot! If you do try it let us know how it goes. Good luck my friend. Thanks! Zippy.
  15. Good game Purple! And good team! Keep it going! πŸ‘ Cheers man! Zippy.
  16. That tool Fraser has posted should help out tremendously. It will at least help narrow it down for you. Sometimes a device will have a couple different MACs for the same device. Each one has a different reason. If there is a MAC address that is close to one you have or know of on your network then its very possible it has two for a reason. This is very common to see this on modem gateways as an example. One MAC for the modem side and one for the router side. Even though its just one device. Zippy.
  17. Hey Frostedflake, Is that MAC address possibly the MAC of your Hitron Coda Modem? Id double check that once and see. Good luck! Zippy.
  18. When your doing this test are you logged into your ISP setup from Frontier? You can see if Frasier has some better advice. Your jitter there in that screen shot is the best you can get! Honestly with your speeds and being on fiber you should be really dominating in games. You have a ONT is that correct from your isp? What happens when you connect your xbox directly to that? Hope you get this sorted. Zippy.
  19. Its really hard to say what the cause is really. I just find it odd that I don't get the same results using another router. Maybe when a new firmware is out we will understand a bit more of whats going on. Lets see what happens when a new firmware out. πŸ‘ There is also something else you can try. What happens when you disable share excess? See if fiddling with that makes any difference. Good luck my friend! Zippy.
  20. Rodney you have some awesome speeds! You can try to keep lowering your sliders to see if you can get better results. But my experience by doing that has been a negative effect.. One can actually over buffer ones connection and it seems to do more harm then good. Again with your speeds and being on fiber this really is strange. Personally that little bit of jitter you are getting is likely your cause of poor game play if its actually coming from the QoS of the router. In my case when I use the sliders it has never given me good results. And I have no idea why. Maybe that the type of QoS Netduma uses doesn't play well with my connection. Or how it actually interacts with my connection is probably a better way to say it. Even with QoS off in your case you can see that the sliders have very little effect. What happens when you get really aggressive with your sliders and set it at say 50%? Is there any noticeable change then? My guess is there wont be.. Again even though that the jitter you are getting is very small if its being introduced into your network by lets say QoS then that's no good.. Hope what im saying makes sense. Zippy.
  21. Heres an example of my ASUS. In this screenshot I have one major spike. But it quickly settles down. That was when another device came on to my network. Even with that major spike my gaming plays much better. And my conclusion is because I don't have the jittery action going on..
  22. Rodney what do you have your sliders set at with the second screenshot? Heres the thing about your second screenshot. While there is no major spikes there is a lot of jittery.. Even though very small. I have never to this day yet been able to get a nice smooth line using the Duma QoS.. If I hook my ASUS up I get much better results. Very smooth line with the occasional spike. Zippy.
  23. In your case and many others I wouldn't suggest enabling IPv6. Once one enables it you also have to test to make sure you actually have true Ipv6 connection.. And like stated above even once one has IPv6 enabled there are side effects from it. Some QoS wont function properly. Like ABB.. That's just one example. There are likely other things as well depending on what type of connection one has.. Its really a flip of a coin.. Zippy.
  24. Hey @Rages Its strange that enabling IPv6 would make things play better. Some of Duma OS currently isn't compatible with IPv6. So I do find this interesting. Yet I have noticed that with my XR500. Who is your ISP if I may ask? Also thanks for your info! Btw.. Welcome to the forum! πŸ‘
