    What did you do exactly?  I see you are using R1. 
     
     
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Has anyone tried Battlfield 4?  I know they were testing 120hz tick rate servers.  I'm not sure what they use in BF1.
    There might be 120hz tickrate servers for smaller maps BFV. 
    https://segmentnext.com/2018/10/24/battlefield-5-server-tick-rate-120-hz/
    If we as a community try BFV smaller maps we can see if tickrate in DumaOs is functioning correctly or not. 
    However, we must confirm for a fact that BFV is using 120hz on those smaller maps though. 
    I don't have BF4 installed at the moment.  But I know it does have 120hz servers.
    Edit:
    I just tried BFV and the tickrate was a solid 61 with some minor 60's thrown in there every once in a while (there is no 120hz servers that I know of with BFV).  It goes to 121 once my character is shot down and it's consistent.  I tried both team death match and the new pacific map.  No change.  it's always 61 and hit rego felt normal to me.  No dodgy stuff going on.  However, BFV is a much slower paced FPS then COD.
    The point of this experiment was to see if the tickrate shown in DumaOS was showing some that same fluctuation going from 60 to 120+.  In BFV it didn't do that.
     
    Edit 2:
    I played BF4 120hz servers and it was 120 host, 30 client.  I checked both on phone and computer. Same thing with 60hz servers.  60 host, 30 client. Then I tried BF1 and it was 61/61 throughout.  It would jump to 121 when character died and it was consistent. 
    So having tried both BFV, BF4 and BF1 it appears that the display for tick rate looks like it's reporting what it should be reporting without the odd fluctuation unlike COD games.  So, why is this only happening with COD games?  And how is it that some are able to stabilize it at over 120hz?

    Zippy reacted to el1t3k in when are you going to update the standard firmware ?   
    I would like to know if you are going to update the Neduma original firmware (not Duma OS) because now it is dated as it has no profiles for the new games just released.  I tried to use the new Duma OS but it is simply unsuitable, ping goes up and performance is poor, it's slow, and can't be easily controlled by the iPhone because the interface is also bad, chaotic and complicated.  So I downgraded to the official version.  Also because I have friends who ask me if it is profitable to buy the R1 now, and nobody wants to spend too much money to buy the newer Router that is powerful but also very expensive, instead the R1 if only the software were optimized could be a product  still valid to buy by calculating that it is cheap.
     
    I think you should do an update that aims to stabilize, fix bugs, and simplify rather than introduce too many new features.  For example, calculating that the VPN function is useless and that nobody would use it since it slows down gaming a lot.  Simple is better (apple teaches this) better a simple thing that works smoothly and smoothly than a complicated and cumbersome thing.

    Moreover it would be the case to add customized profiles also for Hyoer traffic.  '' xbox general gaming '' is very generic, for example I would like the Hyper traffic to only concern Halo 5 gaming, not chat, not downloading material, not streaming, not invitations, or anything but just  Halo 5 gaming, the main purpose of Netduma is to improve K / D so it should be more specific about gaming functions.

    Exactly that.
     
    On the R1 everything like wifi is outdated but it's geofiltering ability is still very usable.
     
    You can run a different form of QoS if you want and still use R1 for the geofilter. Just turn off QoS and set the sliders to 100% or even just set 1000/1000 mbps speeds.
     
    Also there is instances where a standalong R1 just doesn't work, like if you need a PPPoE connection. I have done the above and there is no performance difference when compared to my XR500 in standalone.
     
    There is something different between the 2 as well when it comes to packet processing. On my XR500 my PS4 Pro will show a download speed of 150-250mbit and a very low upload of 10 mbit. For some reason when I use ISP router + R1 in it's place it returns a stable 60/60. I am not convinced the standalone XR500 is better but it's hard to test this without falling into the placebo trap.

    1. Last i checked u dont use a DumaOS or Netduma Router or are you? 
    2. You've posted many links to your extremely high kd gameplays (goodstuf) - iirc it was with openwrt correct? 
    3. If you are using openwrt and then as u stated above u struggle when using the R1 you should rather be asking why does openwrt give u better gameplay vs DumaOS or whatever normal version of netduma software the R1 uses. 
    Leave DMC (dont knock him) he tried to help as before he posted anything this forum was beyond dead and everyone was just struggling on their own in their little corner at least now there is alot more interaction even if most of it is just amongst owners of the products. 
    So why............do u have no issues with openwrt vs netduma software?

    Thank you. I will update this forum to let you know if setting a static IP does the trick. Looking at my IP, i remember it being the traditional 192.168...... but when i just looked back at it, it seems to have changed completely. However my xbox is now officially Static IP'd and we shall see if this does anything for me.

    If you haven't already try giving your devices static Ip's. That tends to help. But honestly one shouldn't have this issue. But the sad thing is I get this every so often. Ive also been told its the firmware. Ive also have had mine for just over a year and have had a fair share of issues. And they continue. You can see what Netduma says but I think a lot is ridding on this next firmware. If its a bust I already know what I have to do.. Hope things work out better for you! If you have any questions feel free to ask! Good luck! And welcome to the forum btw. 👍

    Thanks kinel, I do hope we can get some sort of a thing like this. It would make life much easier and then we can target ports correctly! The Netduma Classified games option while nice likely becomes outdated.. Meaning it likely is missing any new ports or changes. One is always much better off knowing exactly what ports a game is using on a regular bases.. That's why I think we need something like a active connection log. Its really a must have! 
    Btw nice job on the poll! 👍

    I don't remember the specifics but they were very high numbers (30000 etc), shame I didn't save the logs.
     
    They seemed randomized, I wasn't getting the same between games.
     
    I am on PS4. Basicly I just attached a USB network card to my PC and shared the connection to my PS4, and port forwarded 3074 to the PS4. This causes the netduma to not see your console, but geofilter still works when you call your PC a console and just put that into the geofilter.
     
    I'll have a try later and see if I can capture some.

    I was testing with wireshark myself this week and noticed that game traffic didn't seem to utilize port 3074 UDP anymore in COD MW. So I switched to the generic setting for now.

    Zippy got a reaction from Buster in Please read this everyone   
    Just to give this another bump but also give some more info on this.. As I have had this XR500 for about four months now ive learned a lot about this port prioritization.. With the XR500 putting trust in this little red light seems to be very inconsistent.. I know DumaOS has made this easy for us by having all the ports built in so all we have to do is click on DumaOS classified games and are good to go.. But to keep everyone honest and make trouble shooting a bit easier I think what needs to be in future builds is when this little red light comes on it should also list the port numbers that are being prioritized.. And what ones are UDP and TCP for that matter.. That way we can use this info to make sure everything is correct and working as it should. Currently im finding discrepancies in the current system.. Other routers do currently use a system like this already and have been for sometime. So I think this would make a good addition to what is already there and can give us some good details on what exactly is going on then just this little red light.. Don't get me wrong its nice to have one click and let DumaOS take care of the rest.. But it also makes it very difficult to verify anything when it comes to this without seeing whats actually taking place..  I think with just the amount of people that have currently voted should give more then enough insight to see there is interest in these type of features. Granted this maybe not exactly what the Op is suggesting word for word but its along those lines..  What I find confusing is it sounds like the R1 at one time had similar features as this..But currently not anymore.. Which really makes me scratch my head as to why.. Thanks!

    Does this mean the R1 will never get the firmware until Netgear does, like DumaOS itself?  I thought the benefit of the R1 was that it would be able to get things first because you did NOT have to wait for the red tape with other vendors (like Google Nexus devices get the new Android before any third party).  Or is that part of the Netgear deal that they get first dibs?

    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..

    Id have to agree with @stalker4hire- to stay with what you currently have for the time being.. At least id take the safe route for now and not purchase any of the XR series atm. See what the next new firmware does to the XR series type routers and then decide from there. New features are always cool. But nothing is cool when its bugged or not working correctly.. The R1 is likely your better option atm..

    @GuildersYou can try a new modem and see if that does anything for you. But something tells me the only hope for this to get corrected wont be until a new firmware comes out. If the new modem works and fixes your issue then great! If not one will have to wait and hope the next new firmware corrects these odd issues or at least addresses these issues.. Good luck!
