    Are you attempting to replace this with the R2? If so you can just connect it to the existing modem/router which is actually recommended and that will work!

    Can you expand on horrible for DSLreports? Traffic Prioritization can interfere with that test. Have you got any test results or anything, something for us to work from at all?

    Great response from @Zippy! 
    I'd agree, the Wi-Fi on the R2 is constantly improving but not to the standard of the Wi-Fi 6 capabilities of the XR1000, that being said you could always run your XR500 in AP mode as Zippy mentions!
    Glad to hear you've enjoyed your R1 though, thanks for sticking around!

    The R2s wifi is always improving.. But if it was me id put your XR500 in AP mode then run that to the R2.. Or even do that with your current R1! I wasnt around to know what the R1 did.. But wish I had.. I came aboard when I purchased the XR500.. And the XR500 has been one interesting ride for sure.. I see no reason to not purchase the R2.. But if you rely on wifi heavily then I would use the XR500 in AP mode then tie that to the R2.. You should get good solid coverage with that setup! 
    I personally would buy an R2.. for a couple of reasons.. One its all of Netdumas work of art! Two when it comes to firmware updates I feel it will get attention much faster then the Netgear line of routers.. Much quicker turn around with that.. And ive always like to support Netduma by buying there very own products.. I honestly was even thinking about buying an old R1 just to get an idea of how it is.. Even in the current day! I have nothing against Netgear.. But if you feel the need for the XR1000 im sure it would serve you well.. After my experience with the XR500 id have a hard time to purchase another..
    Would I love to see Netduma build a massive hardware spec and wfi router like no one has ever seen before and call it the BEAST! Yes I would!  And I mean insanely over the top hardware.  The kind that would make many scratch there head and say holy mosses!! 😲
    One thing that we can all agree on is you cant beat Netdumas support.. I mean nowadays you just dont see that kind of support from any one or company!
    Good luck with whatever router you purchase!

    I totally understand.. Thanks for the extra info on your flower.. I noticed your screenshots as well.. Thanks for posting your screenshots of that as well.. It helps to trouble shoot things easier..I seen your screenshot of your connection both when a big download is taking place and when not.. To me it sounds like you have everything setup correctly..  Hopefully Netduma can see whats the cause.. I myself am confused as to why this is happening.. I will follow this.. Im always very curious to understand things like this.. Imo your connection should remain stable even with bigger downloads going on.. 
    Hope this gets sorted.
    If I think of anything else I will post.

    I hate it that we have to wait for the isp’s to push updates to these devices. I think modems are devices that don’t get enough support.

    I had to replace my Arris SB6190 and get the SB8200 and I have to say there is a huge difference.
    Not only did the lag and buffering stop but the images are clearer while watching things like Hulu and Discovery+.
    I was downloading a huge update to Warzone last night after calling Spectrum to activate the new modem.
    Then tested the network watching some TV all without an issue.
    Then today for the first time since playing Warzone, I finally won 1st. place playing Battle Royal Solo.
    I can tell while gaming that everything was smoother and no screen tearing by the airport.
    Also now I can actually see the Modem page since with the SB6190 they blocked the page.
    Arris SB8200 Version 6 to be exact for the win!

    As you can see the geo filter is off. I forwarded the ports like it was mentioned. Everything on my Xbox matches everything in the router settings. I went thru all of the alternate ports and they all came back strict. I’ve rebooted my gateway and R1.

    Your welcome @Netduma Liam! Wish it would have worked for him.. This one is very strange and doesn't make sense..  I think some screenshots are needed as well to make sure nothing is being missed..  It wouldnt hurt to have a screenshot as well of his Advance Network settings on his Xbox if possible.. The only other thing is if he is using the Geo Filter.. Could be blocking a server possibly..

    @broderick1000 Could you please provide a screenshot of the rule Zippy mentioned above and we'll see if there's anything visually wrong with it, seems strange that it still isn't getting an Open NAT.

    Op the first thing I would do in this situation is to check what port your Xbox is using.. Go into your Xbox and then to Network Settings.. Then go to Advance Settings.. On the very bottom of the Advance Settings will be what port your Xbox is using.. Usually its 3074.. But sometimes it can change if you have had a power outage or something out of the ordinary happens..
    Id delete all your current port forwarding rules you have and start from scratch.. And make only a port forwarding rule just for the port your Xbox shows in the Advance Settings of the Xbox..
    As an example lets say your Xbox port is still 3074.. Heres how I would set up the rule bellow..
    Source Port..3074 Destination. 3544
    Source Port. 3544 Destination. 3074
    That would be for both TCP and UDP.. Even though UDP usually just works by itself..
    Try that combination above and dont forget to double check what port your Xbox is actually using..
    I noticed in your AT&T gateway that in the service tab it has 3544.. Which is why I suggest trying the port arrangement above.. 3544 is used in this situation when one usually has only IPV4..
    Hopefully this gets you an Open NAT.
    Good luck!

    I always used to play on Mod NAT on BOps3 and IW and have 0 issues.
    With MW19, if I use anything but Open (besides struggling to find matches as I play a low playercount gamemode) I have dodgy hit reg and shoot first die first issues.

    Zippy reacted to Netduma Liam in NEW R2 FIRMWARE: 3.0.205   
    Hey all, hope you’re doing well.
    Here’s the latest firmware update for the R2 – 3.0.205 (Sounds great, right?)
    Nothing huge - but it welcomes several stability, security and general cosmetic improvements to your R2. 
    We recommend you make the upgrade and do a full factory reset afterwards, just to make sure you're starting from a clean slate!
    You can go ahead and download it here:
    https://www.dropbox.com/s/49gt1wxva9rxame/DumaOS-R2-3.0.205.sig?dl=0
    Those that have an R2 on pre-order, rest assured that it will come with this latest firmware pre-installed - if you have any issues or queries, just give us a shout!
    For the techies amongst you, here's a more detailed change log:
    System-wide GUI improvements to both cosmetics and Security Increased DHCP cache size to 10000, stopping DHCP from being filled by 1500 requests Improved Traffic Prioritisation for wireless devices Fixed occasional issue where IPv6 devices weren't assigned DHCP IPs DumaOS webserver fixes for improving operating smoothness of GUI Improved DPI detection services Improved Bandwidth Allocation backend

    Hey l2eactionz, as they say im doin doin! lol.. Hope things are well with you!
    From prior experiences ive always understood both to be important.. But I was seeing more download packets verses upload.. Maybe now something has changed where that is no longer true.. Im always open to listen to all possibilities and open to every ones point of view to help us all understand this..
    Heres the part that doesnt make sense to me.. When adding a Device to TP and proceed to play a game why does my download packets that are being prioritized show more then upload for about 4-5 games.. Then out of the clear blue all of a sudden my upload packets start to surpass my download packet count..? Thats playing the same game without making any changes in the router..   The packet count just starts to change from download being more to upload being more.. I just find that part very strange.. And its also kind of strange as this takes place the performance of the game becomes worse and worse.. So its this that makes me scratch my head trying to understand what is going on..
    So my conclusion the way im thinking is that at the very least the packet count for both up and down should be very close give or take a bit.. But mine seems to get a bigger gap then what I feel is correct..
    Are your packet counts close to each other or is your upload much more?
    Thanks!

    Ha ha good explanation! I can imagine it would be very messy! lol.. They would actually be better served if they capped the new gen to 30 as well and not let the game run wild like that.. Then the game would actually perform better if everyone was on the same playing field..  Some game developer say its fine like that because we use a Normalization.. Which really means trouble.. lol..
