    Hi everyone, 
     
    With the increase in activity on the forum that we are likely to see with the launch of DumaOS we thought it apt to bolster our forum staff. Therefore we have decided to add 3 new moderators to the team. They are all old school DumaArmy members and have recently been a lot more active on the forum giving support to those who need it outside the Netduma working hours. 
     
    So please join me in welcoming & congratulating
    iAmMoDBoX BIG__DOG pollutionblues on becoming our new moderators!

    *NOTE FROM NETDUMA FRASER*
     
    Keep in mind, the R1 still works with those listed you just may get a better experience with those in the compatibility list. Some people use those in the non compatible list and have no issues.
     
    There is no reason to purchase another modem/router unless you have specifically found issues with your existing modem/router.
     
    You are advised to do your own research before making a financial commitment.

    iAmMoDBoX reacted to Zennon in Ping Plotter Quick Guide   
    Fraser has asked me to post a guide for PingPlotter, I will keep it simple like myself, here goes..
     
    Download PingPlotter Here
     
    Type a close IP to your region I usually use twitter.com or .co.uk but as i write this both were connecting to the US as I am in the UK I have set the ping plot to bbc.co.uk.
     
    Typing bbc.co.uk into the target address bar leaving the interval at 2.5 then pressing enter on your keyboard or the go button.

     
    A congested line looks like this.

    You can see the ping in real time, the ping numbers are listed to the left of the plot.
    I achieved this by setting my congestion control sliders to 100% each so that the duma was not helping with local congestion thus saturating the line.
    If you have a ISP issue from say a Intel PUMA 6 based CPU in a modem or ISP congestion an BT line fault (US/World infrastructure alternative) or even a faulty Ethernet cable, RJ11 or faulty Master socket face plate your line may look like this even when you set your sliders lower.
     
    This is a line idle with minimal traffic being used that does not use a PUMA 6 based chipset or have any network issues.

     
    This is a line downloading a full width saturating the line but using the duma congestion control at 70% each way

     
    If you would like to post a bad result to the forum or save a plot to prove to your ISP there is an issue after ruling out your own network then press File and click on save image and this will give you an image of the GUI at that moment for you.

    You probably had your PC in hyperlane while testing, which is only meant for low bandwidth traffic such as gaming... Take your PC out of hyperlane, reset the distribution and make sure share excess is checked
     
    Then recheck your bufferbloat.
     
    I can get A+ at 70% most of the time but that site is also unreliable because if your computer can't handle running it then it will show ping spikes that aren't actually there. The best way to test is using pingplotter or command prompt ping while downloading/uploading and watch the ping yourself. For me, the same settings will always give a different result on that site.
