  1. Actually it was to jack if that helps? I don’t know if he’s off sick or anything. He was arranging collection and delivery for the faulty R1 and the new one being delivered.
  2. Sorry for resurrecting the thread a bit, but it’s been nearly 2 weeks since I’ve got a response from the netduma email address. Does anyone know what’s happening with that?
  3. Hmm I never thought of that! Great idea.
  4. Last update for you all regarding the new set up I have. I have the HG612 modem > edgerouter X > UniFi AP. Ive solved my connection issues by having 2 VLANs , 1 for the gaming devices and 1 for the non gaming devices. I’ve then allocated each gaming device a guaranteed bandwidth. The VLAN for non gaming devices also get guaranteed bandwidth but it’s not tied to a specific device so any device within the subnet can access the full bandwidth if no other device is using it. In terms of protocol, the gaming devices use PFIFO and the non gaming are using FQ_CODEL. Hope this may help the further development of Duma OS as the set up using an interface like yours would be soooo much easier than the hours I spent within the edgerouter interface. Let me know if you’d like any more details!!
  5. There’s been no change if I’m honest. I decided to return the XR500 as clearly there’s something with my connection it didn’t get on with. I’m definitely going to buy it again in the future once some of the issues are resolved and the new development milestone is reached (looking good so far with the insider info!). I’ve got some ubiquity gear, I’m going to set that up tomorrow, if it works better then I can come and tell you which protocol works better for me (I don’t know if there will actually be an improvement.) if that would interest you for future updates and tweaks? Thanks for you’re help through all of this, and do you know if Jack is back soon, I haven’t had a reply from him at the email since Tuesday last week about getting the replacement R1?
  6. Openreach have said no issues on the line with their tests so they didn’t bother sending an engineer. BT have now said no faults as well and refuse to rebook. To be fair to them the speeds are always consistent. I’m going to leave ping plotter running on my pc for an hour or two. If it’s stable then I think the issue may be with the XR500. To further this as well, the fact that it’s rock solid when I’m home alone implies that’s there’s not an issue with the line causing packet loss or anything like that.
  7. When I play Fifa 20 from the UK I connect to the Frankfurt server like you, I believe the others are authentication servers. If you go to the bottom of the geo filter where it says auto ping when you play a game of rivals or champs the ping line should be around 20ms if you’re connecting to the European dedicated servers. If it’s not try turning ping assist down to 0 and leaving strict mode on, on the geo filter. Hope this helps!
  8. Quick update, Openreach engineer due tomorrow morning. However I’m not that hopeful as they missed 3 appointments last time so fingers crossed!
  9. Unfortunately he couldn’t ‘see’ a fault as he was only allowed to work inside the house. However the tests ran by BT on the line and his report suggests there must be something wrong. He also said only gamers would notice the ping spikes and packets loss as other applications like streaming and web browsing would be unaffected so while the whole line is likely to be faulty we’re probably the only gamers on the street who bothered to report the issue so far and so I’m not super hopeful of a solution.
  10. Engineer came, everything in the house is fine. He reckons is degradation on the copper line. He’s sent it back to BT who should call in the next couple of hours with a Special Fault Investigator appointment (don’t know if that’s just a technical name for a normal open reach engineer or if that’s a more specialised open reach engineer). He actually asked if I tried any third party routers with QOS where I showed him my massive hidden collection 😁 and said they were struggling due to the line connection.
  11. To be fair to them I left both the home hub and the R1 there and they both took no notice and didn't blame the hardware. For this one though I'll definitely remove everything so that there's no excuses
  12. Called ISP he reckoned the line is all over the place with dropped packets etc. but believes it's a network issue rather than a line issue. Engineer is coming first thing Friday morning (hopefully). Last time a BT engineer came he said it was an openreach problem so I don't have much hope for this one to do anything but book another engineer. I'll let you know.
  13. Share excess is on normally, having it turned off helps, but I still lag a bit. I'll call my ISP now and see what they say.
  14. I just left it for 30-40 mins and gamed for a bit, went and re-checked the errors and they are all the same values still (am im still lagging). I remeber when i got the modem the values were the same and they haven't changed since. Share excess massively reduces lag. But that's not why i bought the router and I can't be on the router 24/7 changing bandwidth values.
  15. The Bt hub is useless, it has no QOS. I have tried the modem as the first device as well as the BT hub. I have then tried them both to the Tp link to XR500 and straight to XR500 with no TP link in the middle. All produced the same results. I might try knocking on my other neighbors door tomorrow and asking if I can test on their line. One thing I noticed when i got the modem was 42million aprox HEC error on the line, they never go up or down, but even with a factory reset they remain. Thought I would just post the stats from the modem here.
