  1. OK, checking back in. If ANYTHING is connected to the router (wemo light switch, ring doorbell - even inactive, wifes phone, my phone, my computer, etc), I get ENORMOUS latency spikes playing games. if I block everything I get really good games. I have my ISP coming out again tomorrow, and then I will be switching out my equipment (modem and router). I feel like I am better off with a ISP provided gateway. Is there a reason to buy another router with dumaOS? It sounds like you guys have no idea why QOS, across multiple versions and settings, makes my connection worse. I had my eye on the R2 since I dont really use wifi much, but the XR1000 also seemed like an option. I just cannot believe with all the testing I have done the answer is "retry the tests." I did (actually, with keeping records) 100+ tests with various QOS settings and software versions, and they all show QOS makes it worse. At best QOS doesnt make it better. Is this a router problem? Is it DumaOS not working? Is it my Modem? Is it the ISP? Honestly, I am at the point where gaming just isnt fun anymore. I appreciate the help troubleshooting, but this unit seems straight up broken.
  2. I dont see connection benchmark on this version.
  3. So I downgraded to 114 It seems I get closer to full speed to my PC https://www.waveform.com/tools/bufferbloat?test-id=7db2b654-fca2-417b-85d5-53241ea46af9 Also, It seems pingplotter isnt getting the massive ping spikes with QOS, but I still cant resolve the issues with pink spikes on DSLreport or waveform I thought it may help to run some tests at various up and down limits on the QOS settings. I noticed that if upload is at anything but 100, I get a lot of latency: For example, at 100% on upload, I have a very tight and low latency spread on upload, but if I lower it, it goes through the roof. I would assume if I set it lower, it would help with bloat. This chart shows my tests at 70% download, and various upload, 95th% ping during upload bloat-test But what is really confusing to me, is that lowering the upload from 100, while leaving download set to 70, has the same effect on the download latency This chart shows my tests at 70% download, and various upload, 95th% ping during download bloat-test A little aside, lowering the slider for upload increase median ping for download, and lowers median ping for upload (but, again, at the cost of large ping spikes). This seems not-so-bad, if I leave it at 70down/100up for QOS. Is that how its supposed to work? I did a lot of tests and transposed the data into tableau and found that combination produces the best results. Is this the best I can do? I feel like its in a good place via ping plotter and waveform, but a tiny improvement would get me that sexy A+ test.
  4. @Netduma Fraser would work? I also see on the forum. I am not sure what is pre3.0
  5. I dont think I changed WMM settings, no.
  6. Three tests at 2.5 seconds.
  7. The spikes exist at 2.5. 2.5 is what I was running in all the tests except the latest one. This is the same time period on 1 second to reddit.com I changed back to 2.5. Ill post some results. I am not sure what it matters, because I have seen you guys say that the connection benchmark doesnt work quite right, but this is what it looks like with QOS on
  8. I do not have a spare router. I am not worried about the 100% on the first hop, or the 4.1% on the 5th. Its because I am pinging too fast. the 1.7 in that period (that carries through all the hops) is why I mention it.
  9. No DMZ or port forwarding. But, since I added my computer to the traffic prioritization (still no prioritized packets though), I am getting packet loss on an idle connection. (the spike is from a scheduled connection benchmark test). Packet loss is between the router and the 2nd hop. Same timeframe pinging an east coast server I connect to a lot
  10. Hey Liam, Maybe I am doing it wrong, but adding my computer running pingplotter and running a test on it looks the same, and shows no prioritized packets? Either way, it looks like this.
  11. It seems better, except if I disable QOS I get the same result. https://www.waveform.com/tools/bufferbloat?test-id=b62be656-28fe-44dc-8e94-dce97e2c7b7a pingplotter against reddit
  12. I dont know, can you walk me through that or link me? I know what it means, but I cant find it, and I just used the setup wizzard to make sure I didnt overstep my ability. I have an mb8600 as my modem, IPv6 disabled on the router.
  13. All of these are waveform or "connection benchmark" tests with no other activity. I let it run about 10 minutes to get an unloaded ping (so I can see a baseline), and then start doing tests. Typically I trace two sites together, but I just now noticed I can open a second instance of ping plotter, so I did google.com as well (you can see the timestamps line up between the three).
