    fuzzy clam got a reaction from Chf Wiggum in Xfinity and Ping? Night and day   
    You are more than likely suffering from node overload on your line. Comcast, Spectrum etc all have a very saturated network because it's oversold in neighborhoods. I have dealt with it for over 12 years with Spectrum as my ISP, it's a share hub and unfortunately what your neighbors are doing will affect your quality. And remember that there is extremely heavy traffic during the day with Covid...people working from home and having 6-8 people on a chat for meetings, kids being home from school and doing virtual learning and just more usage during the day. I would run PingPlotter on a quiet network (at night) and then run it during the day for the same amount of time and you'll see which hops are giving you the issues.
    And to get around it I actually had a dedicated line for gaming. I used AT&T and my speeds were like 12 / 2 which was plenty because I only used it for gaming and gaming uses very little bandwidth. So I had Spectrum ( Charter at the time ) for my entire house and used AT&T for my PS4 which was a lot lower speeds but night and day difference when it came to line quality (spikes, jitter, and packet loss) and of course my gaming was much improved. But unfortunately most large ISP's all suffer the same issues which sounds like you are suffering from but I would definitely use the congestion control to try and help stabilize and optimize your home network as much as possible.

    fuzzy clam reacted to Netduma Fraser in receive rate why is it so high?   
    There isn't much you can do regarding the tick rates. I've seen a lot of different reports of what the actual tick rate is so it wouldn't surprise me in the slightest if they change this depending on how busy the servers are. The only thing I could think of that might improve the tick rate slightly is Traffic Prioritization, start with prioritizing ALL ports to the game device so

    Source 1-65535
    Destination 1-65535
    Protocol TCP/UDP

    It was, good spot! We weren't using it anymore and people were posting there incorrectly so thought it best to just hide it.

    Don't worry about the speed on Benchmark, that is reporting lower than it should be so we're improving that currently. The R2 focus isn't on bandwidth speeds as that doesn't matter for gaming, was that speed with Classified Games disabled and any other Traffic Prio rules disabled?

    fuzzy clam reacted to BIG__DOG in Router Reboot R2 FW .179   
    Still suffering from the same old issue of random reboot. Went for a full week without issues. Just got into bed and the wifi had gone off. Got up in the middle of the night and it was back on so popped down and logged into the router to see it had rebooted itself . Here is the log file and screenshot of up time. Was hoping this ancient issue would have been resolved after all this time but it is still prevalent.    There are also a large cluster of daemon errors at the bottom.

    fuzzy clam reacted to Netduma Fraser in QOS || Applications vs Devices   
    Here is how I would use it myself:
    Devices - Give my own devices/gaming device more bandwidth so others can't take away from me Applications - More than one gamer in the house so want to ensure each person playing has enough bandwidth

    fuzzy clam reacted to Netduma Fraser in NETDUMA R2 UPDATES AND NEW FEATURES   
    I'm not sure why when there is a delay people think there is a conspiracy going on, development gets delayed all the time. There are several versions at the moment that we have been giving to users with various problems. We've just finished a firmware today that has WiFi improvements etc that is being tested right now. We know WiFi is important to people so we've been working really hard with users so that we can solve this. It's not even been three weeks yet so give it a little time for that to be tested and we'll get it released. If there is a specific issue you're having let me know and I can give you a firmware that is appropriate if available.

    If your home network is really busy and oversaturated things can start to bottle neck and if your gaming, your gaming packets will be basically put at the end of the line so to speak by getting hung up in the queue. Lowering the sliders and setting CC to Auto Enable or Always while gaming will leave your network some "headroom" so your packets don't get pushed to the end of the line. Right now I wouldn't use the auto set up, I would do it manually...start at 70 / 70 and adjust it from there according to connection benchmark until you find your sweet spot.
    And then when your done gaming put your CC back to never and back to 100 /100 and you will get your full bandwidth speeds.

    Stupid question but what does QoS actually do? Why for example would you not leave both at 100%?

    It's better to just set it up manually at this point until they get a fix out for it. I would start at the standard 70/70 and go from there depending on your home network. I am still setting them manually also but they'll get it sorted out for us.

    fuzzy clam got a reaction from Tua PR in Geo-Filter/Fencing servers Help   
    I play a ton of APEX and unfortunately at the moment the best way to run the Duma is to pick the server on APEX and leave it on spectate mode.But the up side is you can still use the CC settings to get the best possible connection and stability on your game. I know they are working on updates for APEX as it is a popular game, hang in there man...good things coming for us APEX players.

    fuzzy clam reacted to Netduma Adrian in Need help with my benchmark.   
    Yes, sorry, I should have expressed myself better. By spikes I meant that, the differences between 20 and 28. The tool is trying to make the ping line as horizontal as possible, as sometimes is way too much aggressive with that. We'll work on that for sure!

    There is more work we need to do regarding Apex Legends on the cloud, as you can see there a few servers are whitelisted there which probably don't need to be. As you can select the server in game I would suggest using Spectating Mode for now.

    I think that's probably intentional as you can use it for the SSID. I'll create a ticket for it just and case and the devs will let me know, then I'll report back.

    fuzzy clam reacted to PharmDawgg in AP with Netduma R2 Device manager   
    As of right now the only way to fix it is to remove the access point.  The R2 does work with access points but the device manager is not as accurate with which devices are active and that all devices are considered wired even though they are connected wirelessly to the access point.  This has been an issue since the R1.

    This is a huge thing IMO because so many run the test initially via wired and then go to a different floor of the house and test it wireless and get a different result.
    And the fact that it pulls  the results directly from the router is again a huge deal, because it eliminates any variables if your speeds are inconsistent or ping is unstable, a great tool that will benefit everyone and simplify things for troubleshooting.

    Hi, yes that is the case!
    In fact, that is what we consider is one of the advantages of Connection Benchmark, so if you see a problem there with your speeds, you are completely sure the problem is not related with your internal network.
