  1. Hi @Mastersgt21 👋 Yes, that sounds like a throughput issue to me. VoIP dynamically changes (as does some streaming video) to make use of what available bandwidth there is. Glad it's not just me that has noticed this 👍
  2. While downloading on the PS5, upload is about 1Mbps. That looks fairly normal to me.
  3. Just disabled IPv6 (and confirmed it as being disabled via https://ipv6-test.com/), started a 35GB download on the PS5 and noted the following: DumaOS Classified Games packet red dots inactive when just downloading the game (full throughput) DumaOS Classified Games packet red dots activate when playing a game, but no throttling of the background download takes place (still full throughput) Absolutely no change here when using IPv4 vs IPv6. I think other people (i.e., yourselves) need to test this to confirm.
  4. Yes, IPv6 is enabled on the XR500 (Pass Through) and confirmed as working. ... and also on the PS5:
  5. Congestion Control = On Auto Enable = On Sliders both set to 70% (PS5) DumaOS Classified Games packet red dots inactive when just downloading a game or patch (full throughput noted on Network Monitor) (PS5) DumaOS Classified Games packet red dots activate when playing a game, but no throttling of the background downloads takes place (still full throughput) Not sure what test rigs you have in place at Duma HQ but if you have a PS5, try the above... or anyone else reading this thread who has some time on their hands?
  6. Hello👋, On the XR500 V2.3.2.120 QoS >> Traffic Prioritization panel, while adding a device, you can select Traffic Type as Normal (default), Video or Gaming / Voice. However, the Traffic Type column is incorrectly labelled as 'Wireless Type'.
  7. Hi Fraser 👋 Sorry for the slow reply… I have added my PS5 to Traffic Prioritization as a ‘Games Console’ and the Traffic Type is ‘Normal (default)’, so nothing particularly out of the ordinary there. I had exactly the same settings with the PS4. But, I think this is console-side, not DumaOS-side. The PS4 exhibited aggressive capping to background game or patch downloads while actually playing a game. However, on the PS5, full throughput is allowed while playing a game. PS4 example while observing Network Monitor: Just downloading a game or patch - full 60Mbps download throughput Load a game and start playing it - drops to about 20Mbps download throughput Stop playing game - back to full 60Mbps download throughput PS5 example while observing Network Monitor: Just downloading a game or patch - full 60Mbps download throughput Load a game and start playing it - full 60Mbps download throughput Stop playing game - full 60Mbps download throughput Hence, while playing online on the PS5 while a background download is in progress, I occasionally suffered lag spikes. It doesn’t really bother me as I just pause the download or wait for the download to complete but some folks might be wondering why they are sometimes experiencing lag spikes on the PS5…. If so, this may be one cause of it?
  8. Hi peeps, I’ve finally got my hands on a PS5 and (maybe) a significant observation I’ve made, as far as lag-busting DumaOS is concerned, is that full WAN throughput is granted to game downloads and updates, regardless of games currently being played. Let me explain… I have a solid VDSL2 connection of 60Mbps down 15Mbps up and a base ping of around 9ms. It’s not the fastest connection in the world by any stretch of the imagination, but it’s been constant and rock solid for over 20 years. Previously on the PS4, I could download a game (or an update to a game) at full 60Mbps throughput. However, when I launched a game, that download speed would quite aggressively be capped at maybe 10Mbps. I assume this was PS4’s own QoS working (or possibly a hardware limitation), but frankly pings during gaming sessions while background downloads were in progress, were great on PS4. Currently on the PS5, background downloads do not seem to have this throttling. My full 60Mbps throughput continues uncapped while playing games, and pings can often shoot up to around 80-120ms because of buffer bloat. If you have a super-duper high speed connection then that’s great, because any degradation to pings will be short lived, but for people on slower connections when games might take many hours to download, this might be an issue. Not sure how DumaOS could manage this with both gaming traffic and downloads going through the same LAN IP but though I’d mention it anyway. ----- [Edit]: Good luck England!
  9. Hi peeps 👋 Just a small issue with the XR500 V2.3.2.120. If I block a device in Device Manager and click apply, the HTML code for a bold font displays within the textual popup, instead of actually applying the bold font itself.
  10. That sounds plausible for the inoperable ADD DEVICE button, since I name all my devices and have static IP's for about 15 of them. But @Jayco93 had not restored a config when they received the ‘Uncaught Unmatched Device’ error message, so obviously restoring a previous config wasn't the reason they got the error message.
  11. I got the error message and then decided to remove the (PlayStation) device from the Geo-Filter page; not the other way around. I didn't remove the device from the Geo-Filter page and then get the error message. I have never removed devices from Device Manager. I only removed my PlayStation device from the Geo-Filter page in an effort to stop the 'Uncaught Unmatched Device' error from popping up. When I subsequently tried adding my PlayStation device back to the Geo-Filter, clicking the ADD DEVICE button did absolutely nothing at all. It failed to bring up the list of devices to select from. I only ever have one device (my PlayStation) added to the Geo-Filter page. I initially thought it could be an old config on a new firmware issue but @Jayco93 has said above that they didn’t know they could even save the config. Edit: So I think there are two issues here which may or may not be related; the error message and the inoperable ADD DEVICE button.
  12. Did you save your config on an old firmware, update to a new firmware and then load your saved config back again?
