    Geo Voodoo??

    Yes, for sure. What exactly is this server?

    Geo Voodoo??

    Everything seemed to work fine today since I rebooted the Duma......here’s the pic of the server that was being blocked, giving me NAT issues. It’s in Texas so just assumed it could have been my area?

    Geo Voodoo??

    Not that I’m aware of. Same as what I always use.......Just my Mac Book pro as always. I disabled geo, reset my home location & rebooted the Duma. When I get home later I’ll boot up the console, then enable geo. Whats the proper procedure to change home location? I also found the reason my NAT was having issues. For some reason it’s locking out what looks to be my true location. I have to “allow” myself apparently to get an open NAT.......but I’ve had to redo this several times as well. Not sure what’s up?

    Geo Voodoo??

    So here’s a weird one for you....... im in Texas but have been forcing my server overseas to around the UK area for the higher ping. I set my home location with everything on..... Geo enabled, console on etc, then reboot the console. I have strict mode on & O ping assist. It worked perfectly and only allowed hosts in my radius. Here’s the problem...... I booted up console today & even though nothing was changed on the Duma, it allowed connections back at where I previously had my home location. So I rebooted the game again and still didn’t work. Acted as though my geo was off. Then, all of a sudden, the next lobby I played, the home location moved all on its own back to what I previously played on the day before??? I’ve never seen that. It’s like it was stuck but the weird part is, is that it was working then decided to shift all on its own. Duma voodoo magic??

    No Open NAT suddenly???

    Perfect! Sounds great........thanks so much for your time. I’ll keep ya posted 💪🏼

    No Open NAT suddenly???

    Ok, so far so good. Just unchecked enabled, turned console on & had Open NAT. I literally was waiting to get hit by lightning for how easy that was! Lol 😂. After I turn the geo back on & play, I’ll check again. Whats the preferred method for Geo when turning on & off console on a regular basis. I’ve heard mixed stories on whether to turn Geo off or leave it on upon every shutdown, then turn back on once console is on? What are your thoughts?

    Should I remove my console from GEO, reboot, then check network NAT with GEO still off......or any other specific method?

    No, but I’ll try that next. I’ve never seen it do that before but that’ll be nice if it’s just the GEO.

    No Open NAT suddenly???

    Ok, so I set the pass through again on BGW, disabled all port forwarding & WiFi (I don’t use the WiFi from the BGW210 or Duma, my Netgear is wired to Duma for WiFi only). I didn’t see any UPNP option so hopefully that’s fine. My setup is BGW210 (modem/router combo) - Duma (pass through from BGW) - Netgear wireless router & Xbox wired to the Duma. Turned off UPNP on the Duma and have all ports forwarded under “add rules”. Restarted the BGW, then the Duma, along with Xbox......and still shows NAT “unavailable” when I go to settings & check NAT type on Xbox. Instead of just popping up, saying “moderate”, “open”, etc......it’s shows that it’s searching, then eventually it shows “unavailable”, along with some information under it....I think Xbox something or other & something about “toredo” can’t be found? Can something be off with the IP addresses or something, since it’s in pass through? If so, what do I need to check? It worked fine before so it’s definitely something since I downgraded, not jiving with the BGW. I get an open NAT with just the BGW & no Duma.

    Yes sir, but since I factory reset I’ll have to add them again. I really appreciate you ALL helping me out with this. Hopefully we can get it figured out. This is probably the first real issue I’ve had.

    No Open NAT suddenly???

    It’s connected to the BGW210 modem/router combo. I put it in pass through mode with the Duma hardwired directly to it. Packet filters and firewalls turned off on the BGW210. I find games /lobbies fairly well but I can’t connect to my friends when trying to invite them to my game / party chat. I have all ports manually forwarded on the BGW210 as well. Should I have them forwarded on both the BGW210 & the duma, or just the Duma?

    Yes I did the factory reset & I tried with one or the other as far as UPNP & port forwarding. Still a no go. Not sure what else to look for.
  13. So I downgraded to the original firmware, now having issues getting open NAT. NAT type says “unavailable”. Not sure what’s going on.....tried port forwarding all ports, with and without UPNP turned on. I’m using the pass through feature on my gateway modem & I always had open NAT type. Is it something with the pass through address along with the old firmware IP that’s not jiving? Thanks.
  14. So since games take so little bandwidth and streaming / watching movies take much more......what’s the proper way to set device Prioritization (flower petals)? I ask, because on the knowledge base page, it seems to me that it’s saying to give the most bandwidth to more demanding devices, such as my WiFi router, since that’s what Netflix, etc is run off of. So since I have 3 devices connected (Xbox, WiFi router & laptop), does this mean I should drag the petals more towards the WiFi router? So instead of 33%, being equal, the router should be let’s say 70, which leaves my Xbox with 15% along with laptop? I ask this because I usually hear that you want to make sure your Xbox has enough bandwidth over everything else, which seems contradictory to me. So should petals be more towards Xbox or to other devices? Hope that made sense!

    General CC Question.....

    Quick question about whether CC is necessary for certain conditions........ Correct me if I’m wrong, but if I’m running PingPlotter during gameplay & I have a stable line, then is there any need to use CC? Games only use a few mb and since I’ve got Fiber 300 up/down, I can’t see why it’d be necessary. I don’t notice a difference in gameplay between full speeds & throttling. I feel in my case, the GEO is probably all I need to control my ping. Even when my wife is streaming Netflix while I’m playing, I don’t think it’s taxing my line enough to make use of CC. Thoughts?
