    Netduma Alex reacted to SwiftCookie in Self Managed Geo Cloud/Customisable   
    Hey Duma,
    Would there be any chance or any future plans of allowing the customisation of our own Geo servers? I'd love to go in and update my own server locations and classifications myself because right now there are Sydney COD CW servers appearing in Japan and some foreign servers appearing in Australia. I think it would be nice to have the ability to do it ourselves but of course localised to our own routers.

    Netduma Alex got a reaction from starlord2687 in Welcome R2 owners! We want your feedback!   
    Hello, congratulations and thank you to all of the new R2 owners!
    I'm making this thread because we'd like everybody's honest opinions on the product. The cool thing about the R2 is that it's the same unit that our developers use to develop on, so if you find any bugs or have any issues, we should be able to respond quickly to that feedback in new firmwares. I can report any issues straight to the developers and get an answer very quickly about how feasible an update is.
    Because DumaOS is developed using Netduma R2's, you should expect cutting edge updates and new features to come to the R2 before other platforms. Keep an eye on this forum for our latest firmwares, because the R2 doesn't currently have an auto-update function for firmwares.
    However we CAN send out automated updates for the Geo-Filter map, the Ping Heatmap lists, the Device Types, the Traffic Priorization profiles and the Adblocker lists. In future we'll add the ability to update features through the rapp store!
    Anyway that was a tangent, let us know what you think, and thanks again for supporting Netduma!

    @Zippy is correct, IPv6 will not work correctly with anything before DumaOS 3.0, but with IPv6 disabled, Teredo should be taking care of it. in DumaOS, under Settings > Advanced > IPv6, is it set to Disabled?

    I managed to fix this issue - for anyone who experiences the same issue - the latest nvidia driver for cold war was the culprit....i rolled back to the driver I used during the beta and that was it.
    Finally...managed to get some nice saved gameplay as well 😎

    Alright looks like a factory reset after the downgrade has fixed things so far. Will report back if anything goes south in the coming days. Thanks for the help!

    I dont think the XR700 is fully compatible for IPV6 yet.. I could be wrong on that but if you are going to try and enable IPV6 on the XR700 I would disable QoS then try it.. My understanding was anything that isnt running DumaOS 3.0 ones IPV6 wouldnt work correctly.. I could be wrong on that.. Im sure Netduma will chime in for you to give better clairification..
    Thanks!

    Netduma Alex reacted to GavadaKro in VLAN Feature on R2   
    The VLAN could also be interesting for the French people using the Internet provider "Free"  and its "Freebox" ADSL boxes, because their are using a VLAN between the modem and the TV player. By not supporting VLAN, the player cannot be plugged behind the R2 router.
    The provider 'Free' is currently having around 6 686 000 clients using their services.

    @Ezkivel7 Your router is already on DumaOS so you don't need the fix.

    Netduma Alex got a reaction from Squidid in Netduma R2 rebooted suddenly   
    Hybrid VPN is a VPN client that runs on the router. 
    When you subscribe to a VPN service, they usually provide you with a desktop application that you need to install to be able to connect to their VPN. Hybrid VPN is like a version of that application that runs on your router.
    More specifically, it's an OpenVPN client. This means that it can connect you to any VPN which uses OpenVPN configuration files. This are open source and widely available, most VPN providers will give you these config files.
    Hybrid VPN has built in profiles for PureVPN and HideMyAss, making it especially easy to use those services, but these are not the only services we support.

    Netduma Alex got a reaction from Avalon2099 in Netduma R2 3.0.179 and earlier versions = Never reaching ISP speed   
    Several things to consider here:
    Gaming actually uses very little bandwidth, what we're really interested in at Netduma is ping The R2 hardware can hit speeds close to a gigabit in a testing environment, but real world factors may be affecting your performance QoS intentionally limits bandwidth to bring control of the queue (buffer) onto your router. Using Auto-Enable, this can be limited to only happen when games are being played. We could have made the hardware more powerful to allow a more consistent ability to get gigabit speeds, but we had to make a call concerning cost vs performance. We wanted the R2 to be affordable for most people.
    It's also worth noting that in most countries (including the UK, where we are based) it's not common to have a gigabit connection. In fact it's pretty rare. As an example, at my house near our office, I get 30Mbits download and 6Mbits upload. For me, QoS really helps, especially when my family members are downloading/streaming things.
    DumaOS QoS is very helpful for people with lower bandwidth connections, as it allows them to get the most out of what little they have. For those with very good bandwidth, DumaOS may still be able to help, but QoS will be less relevant, as there's probably not going to be any queuing going on.
    I would suggest adding your Games Console/PC to Traffic Priorization, setting Congestion Control to Auto-Enable, and then trying different points on the sliders... If you're getting lag, try lowering the sliders by 10% and see if results are better. Once you find a setting low enough to work, you can start moving it up again by 5%. Basically you're looking for that sweet spot, the perfect crossover between bandwidth and traffic prioritization optimization.

    Netduma Alex reacted to patnj in Feature Request: Backup/Restore Settings   
    Following updating from .138 to .179 and performing a factory reset (as advised on this forum), it took me around an hour to re-configure the router around the following areas;
    Re-adding fixed IP addresses to DHCP for around 20 devices Re-adding Traffic Rules for kids PC and devices Renaming the devices in Device Manager (43 devices) Re-adding QoS Traffic Prioritisation Re-creating Ad-Blocker List (Domains) Whist I appreciate the need to perform Factory resets, especially after firmware upgrades, I feel it is imperative that a mechanism for backing up and restoring configuration data is needed urgently.
    I am aware that NetDuma are very open to adding feature requests to the development backlog, but it would be good have some "voting" capability for the NetDuma R2 community to influence the priority of feature request backlog (excluding defects 😊).
    I am sure I'm not the only one that would like such a feature to be added, but it would be great to see if this is truly the case with the rest of the R2 community.
    There are many product based companies in the UK that use this to great affect, where features requests are voted on. For example, new request made and the initial status is assigned (Status: Under Consideration), then if NetDuma accept the feature (Status: Accepted to Backlog), then when development starts (Status: Under Development). If not accepted (Status: Rejected). When the feature request status changes to (Under Development) a yearly quarter delivery estimate is given i.e. Q2 2020, or Q4 2020.
    The previous paragraph is only a suggestion, but the backup/restore feature request is something that I feel is needed to stop one getting pi##ed off every time a factory reset is required 😊
    Speaking for myself, I am more than happy to support NetDuma with constructive feedback on defects on early or new firmware releases, but without the suitable tools to help make this process easier, it is a little hard to justify, when in the back of my mind, I am thinking I need to spend an hour to re-configure the router after a new firmware update, which needs a factory reset to resolve a possible issue.
