    CrossFitKila717 reacted to Netduma Alex in Curious??   
    Well DumaOS is only in beta on the R1. On all of the Netgear Nighthawk Pro Gaming routers we don't consider it a beta anymore. The fact that we call it a beta on the R1 is just a holdover from the transition from the original firmware to DumaOS.
    There will certainly be updates, big things are on the horizon, but whether those will still be under the umbrella of "beta" or not, I don't know.
    Essentially, it's semantics, it won't affect the product.

    I gotcha man.......go to “firewall” tab, then you’ll see “IP Passthrough”. Click that & choose device (xr500 should show up). Select that and select “fixed” on the other drop down. It’s pretty much that simple. There’s only IP Passthrough not Bridge mode. Restart your device under “device” tab, then your console. Should see “open” NAT as well. Make sure to turn your WiFi off on the gateway as well, assuming you’re using the WiFi from xr500. All port forwarding done through the xr500 as well.....don’t do any funky things to the Gateway, just leave that as is......remember, it’s just passing your IP through it. All control is at xr500.

    The thing is just that the ISP can't always help it.
     
    I am in the Netherlands at the moment playing on my 250/25 cable connection and normally I connect to Vultr in Amsterdam. Today though I had a unknown host designated as peer.
     
    Turns out this is Internap cloud services in Amsterdam. I had some ping spikes and I ran a pingplotter log out of curiosity. As you can see on the picture, the actual bufferbloat occurs on the Internap Corporation network. Also there is another carrier between my ISP and Internap and that is Cogentco. When I connect to Choopa/Vultr that is not there. Instead its ISP -> NTT -> Vultr.
     
    So a 2 different game servers in the same city with a totally different routing.
     
    Some ISP's might specialize in low latency for gaming but if the backbone that they use has one bad hop it can already screw you over.

    CrossFitKila717 reacted to Bert in Duma r1 vs xr500   
    Doesn't make a difference if you just use it as a gaming router.
     
    There is only some situations where the XR500 has the upper hand:
    1. When you need PPPoE / VLan tagging
    2. When you have a lot of wifi devices and use QoS on them.
    3. When you have a lot of bandwidth available over 400ish Mbps and you use it so heavily that you need to use QoS.
     
    The wifi is much better on the XR500 but if budget is an issue, this is easily solved by simply buying a Wifi AP and using that with the R1. Before I had a XR500 I used the R1 and had one of my old ISP routers configured as AP and that worked just fine. Not supporting 5GHz wifi is one of the R1's biggest drawbacks IMHO.
     
    On my XR500 in Asia I generally have my wifi turned off and only have a PC and PS4 connected wired and both the XR500 and R1 perform identical. The only thing is that I need a PPPoE setup and that's why my XR500 stays, otherwise I would have left the R1 in there and let my XR500 run my home wifi net. If I wanted to use the R1 there I could simply get a Edgerouter and run my R1 behind that though so loads of options.
     
    Your games won't run better on a XR500 assuming you're wired but it simply does everything else better.

    It's annoying when the problem occurs externally because there's nothing the router can do.
    I think there are some ISPs that are specifically aimed at gaming, supposedly they route your packets in the quickest possible way instead of the most cost effective as most ISPs do. I don't know how effective it is, i've not tried.

    If you keep QoS active it will most likely not work for you as the router just dumps the other traffic. It really depends on the setup. Also when it works you need to adjust your playstyle it only works for very agressive players. You have to remember that if the other guy is around the corner first it works in your disadvantage.
    Try turning QoS off and running a big upload.
     
    There is more advanced ways of doing it involving a PC with shared connection but I considder it cheating so I'll leave it at that.

    CrossFitKila717 reacted to Netduma Fraser in AT&T Fiber Optic..........   
    Assuming the ONT has an ethernet port then you should be able to plug the router directly in to it without the need for a modem. That's providing your ISP doesn't require their hub to be used which is sometimes the case. If the ONT doesn't have an ethernet port you may be able to get an adapter to allow an ethernet connection.

    I’ve got Fiber 300/300 so “even if” my wife is watching Netflix, which is at most the only other thing going on, it wouldn’t even scratch the surface. That’s why I don’t feel I need the CC, Switch or any type of QOS at this time......even you guys at Duma say I don’t need it, since original firmware would have me use Super Turbo Mode and disable it for my speeds, only relying on geo. I was just asking / verifying that if I have a solid & stable line (low to no jitter) & a low ping, that in “theory” my gameplay should be superb? Since a stable line & low ping connection is what the Duma is trying to accomplish. I’m just tired of chasing settings if this is as good as it gets. Lol 😂 
    The main question is does the PingPlotter graph truly reflect gameplay efficiency (ie lag, missing bullets etc)? As much emphasis as we put on trying to get that stable connection, it just seems as though there a lot behind the scenes that we can’t fix  
    Hope that makes sense?

    I've tried what Bert is saying many times. Never worked for me. Not on BOps3, IW nor BOps4. I don't think it works that way but thats just from my experience.
    In fact, iirc, lowering your bandwitch as much as 256k/s, you can't even connect to the CoD servers. I remember having trouble connecting when I tried lowering mine to 1mb.
    Also, thats no good when you have 25+ devices connected to your router 😛 Gonna piss someone off when they try to connect and can't.
    EDIT : In fact... just tried it... made no difference. I'm not even sponging, everyone still spots me as they should.

    99% of the time I am the only one using my connection when I play CoD... PingPlotter shows complete stability even with the QoS off but guess what, CoD games play like crap without it.
    Low ping, low jitter etc don't seem to matter (every other game of course it does but not in CoD)
    Like I said... the servers and netcode are bloody awful on CoD games... for me at least WW2 and BOps4 have been the worse. IW I found consistency, last two CoD games I've found none. What works one day won't the next.

    Yeah you are fine on the QoS/Ping Plotter front. Ping Plotter gives you a great idea of how stable your connection is so if it's low and steady than everything is good on your side. The issue is probably coming from the servers your connected to or potentially what has been eluded to above. Peak times can be particularly bad for server lag but it sounds like it's nothing to do with you as your connection is optimal.

    Are there any other devices on your network that could be starting downloads while you're playing? If you seem to experience lag at times, unless it's a line problem, I would imagine it's something else in your house.

    Its their servers no doubt.
    I've been having a really crappy time lately with lag (PingPlotter shows 0 spikes)
    Honestly, hardly anyone plays BOps4 now. Even with an open NAT and no geo filter, takes me sometimes 30 secs to actually find a match.

    I have found that sbmm screws you over on cod, especially in bo4. You win a game or 2 in a row, maybe 3 and then boooom you cant hit sh!t and everyone seems to be ahead of you (out of sync). I am not the onl;y one in this forum who subscribes to this theory as it happens so regularly.

    So, just to clarify & to keep it simple since there’s so many scenarios, etc involved with setups (internet/hardware/Duma settings).........here’s the question.....if I’m running & monitoring PingPlotter at the same time as I’m playing BO4, WW2 etc, & my graph shows a ping of around 6, with fluctuations of only about 1-2ms (very tight line), this is best case scenario, correct? As in, my network is optimal during gameplay, which is what really matters. I ask because even with this perfect stability I still “seem to” experience lag at times.
     I have AT&T Fiber 300/300 (using their BGW210-700 Gateway) & this is the case with no Congestion Control. I’m basically using Duma for the GEO. 
    Everything LOOKS great on the diagnostics........just hate chasing settings if nothing more can be done. 
    Thanks as always!
