  1. Hi thanks for joining and thanks @Netduma Fraser For helping 👍
  2. There is no way 0.2 packet loose is an issue, however it would be helpful for you to run PingPlotter and saturate your network so we can see if there is an issue. if say you saturate your connection and it shows spikes on the bottom graph we can look at how your QoS is set. Normally if there’s an issue you will see high spikes when other traffic is there. Even the first photo of PingPlotter shows no issue as that small amount of packet loose is not carried through the rest of then hops. Saturate your line and see what happens and post the results please.
  3. Did you have the Beta version of IOS 15 before upgrading to the official one?
  4. Those little logs are normal and I have to agree with Fraser that 0.2% is nothing to worry about. Can you try another target rather than BBC. Close down PingPlotter, open, aim at say Google then run a speed test to saturate your line as much as possible. Also what is your QoS settings?
  5. Hi and welcome Normally you would pick a router that suits your networking needs, so if you have lots of devices and say some are AX and WiFi and coverage is important the XR1000 would be a nice choice. The XR500 is a WiFi 5 wave 2 router and very good at handling a busy network and again has good WiFi coverage but it’s not AX. The R2 is a Netduma router and has the full functions of Duma 3.0. While is can’t compete with the other routers for WiFi it’s fine for a modest household where you don’t have a huge number of clients. This is reflected in the price. A lot depends on your needs. Unfortunately your base ping can’t be lowered as that’s dictated by your line but you can pick a server that offers the best connection which is a great feature.
  6. It really needs to be a wired connection for ping plotter, there is a latency issue as it’s carried from the first hop and continues through all the hops. Wifi has inherent limitations plus you have other devices connected to your isp router. The R2 really needs to handle all devices though and that’s a starting point then you need to connect up wired and see what your results are. Latency from the first hop carried through points to your network.
  7. How are you testing your base ping? Are you using WiFi or are you wired up? Did you test as Fuzy suggested?
  8. Speed tests to servers can be a bit iffy and your location is down to your isp and your address. Sometimes I’m not in my area but that’s not a concern to be honest. If your base ping has risen, there are several ways of getting a rough idea like pinging or using PingPlotter it could indicate an issue with your isp/line. PingPlotter is a handy tool to see what’s going on so well worth a try. Are you able to connect to your isp equipment to check to see if your line has an issue?
  9. Hi and welcome. Unfortunately you cannot connect the router wirelessly to the modem. Some routers do allow this but they are running in WAP mode and at that point you loose all the basic router functions. The R2 really needs to replace the functions of the isp router to see full benefits but if you have a dead spot with WiFi it’s best to use an Access Point to gain the best performance which means wires running from router to AP.
  10. When you reset it does not remove firmware, a reset simply clears the routers memory and put it back to a default state. yes you are on the latest firmware. There’s a support page which is handy if you need firmware, or want documentation. https://www.netgear.com/support/product/xr1000.aspx If auto update is on it may have updated in the background, many turn that feature off so they can update when it’s convenient.
  11. Hi, unfortunately there’s no modem built in so you need a separate modem.
  12. Have you reset your router after any of the updates? there was one recently and it’s best to factory reset if you notice an issue.
  13. Have you tried reinstalling the latest firmware followed by a reset then test. Hopefully Fuzy will pop in to compare his settings with yours but if it were me I would be tempted to do the above. I don’t think there’s been any hardware alterations as the model you have will be the same as Fuzys given the timeline.
  14. The basic answer is it can’t as it stands. Some routers offer all 3 versions of SNMP with V3 being the most secure. I’m guessing the team prefer to keep all stats onboard which is not a bad thing. There are security concerns using SNMP so you really need at least V2 64 counter support rather than V1 32 plain text which is not encrypted. V3 offers the best for security. The router I have is onboard and there is a way of SSH into it to use other means but the onboard info is plenty and there’s 16Gb of ram to handle the collection of data with options to store more in depth stats. It’s not fully supported though and it’s not 64 either so has limits even though it shows this option but is not really supported as such.
  15. Can you enable also co existence in the 2.4ghz. Under the 5ghz check the bandwidth is not the top 4000 and some thing and select the next one down. Worth a go.
  16. Ah sorry I looked at your profile and saw you had the XR500, that’s got the tick box but yes I believe you had it set to 160Mhz. Fingers crossed that’s fixed it.
  17. What’s the hidden network that shows a strong connection?
  18. If AX is on just try turning that off to see if it sees it. If it does then the network drivers could be the cause on your laptop. i
  19. That may not be related to preamble. What width is tour 5Ghz set you ie 80Mhz? don’t tick the 160Mhz, that will cause devices to drop that don’t support it. Run a WiFi scanner to see if the 5Ghz drops or is not showing when the problem cops up.
  20. If you don’t have 802.11b devices I would try short, you may not notice any difference though.
  21. To be fair to Bert I’ve seen some really awful fibre connections in the US where base pings were really poor. That boils down to the isp and that maybe why some try to source a way of finding a better connection but of course you can’t really sort out issues when the connection is poor to start with but if it helps to some extent that’s good news. If you post a vid it would be great showing the ER4 SQM. Always nice to compare when you have time to do so.
  22. I think Netduma quote around the 350 mark that above does not require QoS depending on the network, Unifi quote 300, in fact they have it set on by default at 300 or below on the UDM range so you need to disable it if you don’t wish to use it. my rather low 57DL and 11UL benefits from it which is what it should be doing if it works correctly.
  23. That depends on the environment and devices. Long is normally the default for compatibility for older devices. How are you testing your line?
  24. Let me show you the UDM at work using FQ CoDel. Having cake or FQ CoDel means nothing unless it’s working correctly and yes there are bugs in Duma but they will get sorted on the NG side I hope. Any type of QoS must be implemented well but where Duma will acknowledge an issue you try getting Unifi to do the same. I’m posting about this issue for at least 2 previous firmwares and not one comment on their support forum. Notice it does not work on the upload and after several painful hours I’ve managed to get the upload to work but the download now has the issues. If I was to plug the R2 in, can’t on the UDM as there is no DMZ so you run into NAT issues I get a perfect latency connection. this vid is on their support forum and has been totally ignored. now unfortunately when it comes to routers none are perfect, they all have their faults but it then boils down to support. In your case you could raise the issue direct with NG support to egg them on, some times they listen and will work with you. Regarding the throughput on the ER4 no people still complained and saw poor results, you could whip it on and try it to see what you get then do a little video as I’m always interested to see how different routers perform. on a gig line you really should not require QoS on unless you have some huge household requirements. At that point you just hope your isp has great peering so you enjoy a nice connection. Auto congestion setting at 100% is probably correct as it’s not finding an issue.
  25. Hi and welcome. What position is the R2 in, is there anything electrical around it? You should be getting far more throughput on 5Ghz than you are seeing. What is the bandwidth set on for 5GHz?
