    Buster reacted to Netduma Alex 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!

    Buster reacted to Sable in Defeat MW Lag Compensation!   
    After various testings over the last few weeks I’ve finally found a way to defeat lag compensation on my end, when I was playing on servers in my country (UK) I was always a second behind foreign players due to lag compensation, so I used to always connect to the Spanish server or the Italian server to get myself on the better end of lag compensation, that worked for a while but then when the updates rolled out it began not to work. 
     
    For about a week now I have had no issues with being insta melted and Hit marker bullet sponging. 
     
    My solution is simple but please note that just because this works for me that doesn’t necessarily mean it will work for others, but hopefully it will.
    On QoS I leave sliders at 100% and then select Never. Then on the console you will be playing the game on (which is PS4 for me) Give it exactly 3mb Download and 0.5mb Upload (between 0.5 and 0.3mb) and untick share excess, make sure you untick both download and upload. You can check in PS4 Network settings: test connection to see if what you have set has been applied. I don’t bother with port prioritisation and I leave DumaOS games ticked.
    I keep my geo filter on strict with no ping assist and set it to 500km radius around my home country.
    I hope this can help others out because this game can be quite frustrating, MW is very generous with the amount of lag compensation that it gives to higher ping players but by manipulating your connection and making it seem like you have slower speeds it seems to do the trick of eliminating it.

    I had the same yesterday, I noticed away from home that network had dropped. A simple reboot of router was required and all is back. So far it seems fine.

    Well that is fantastic news! Perhaps BT rolled out that update which is why the router lost the internet, either way really happy it is all working as expected now!

    Just an update, i woke up this morning to my xr500 having no internet, long story short i had to do a factory reset and i have just gone to do a speedtest, im consistently getting the speed i pay for instantly and i have lost 7ms of ping over my usual servers on speedtest.net , but more importantly on pingplotter now, with QoS at 70% i have next to no movement on ping what so ever. Even with QoS disabled whilst watching a 1080p60fps video on YouTube im not seeing any pingspikes, certainly nothing like  i was where it was hundreds of ms.  😀

    Hi everyone,
    Thank you for your feedback. We’re aware that in some specific cases, customers are experiencing increased latency when simultaneously using streaming video services and gaming online using the same connection.
     
    This issue only affects some of our customers, and only in the specific instance where they are using a console or PC to play games online while streaming video, not purely online gaming services like Google Stadia.
     
    The good news is that we’ve tested and approved a fix which we are now rolling out within our network to resolve the issue for the vast majority of the customers that experienced it.
     
    We’ll be rolling out these updates to resolve this issue for all of our customers over the coming months. While we’re doing this, we ask customers to contact our moderators in the community if they’re still experiencing this issue and we may be able to help resolve the issue more quickly on a case by case basis.
     
    Thanks for your patience and we apologise for any inconvenience while we’ve investigated and worked to fix this.
     
    Cheers

    Buster reacted to N3CR0 in Caddy 1.2   
    OpenWRT is what I'll be turning to next as I'm having 0 luck with DumaOS. Someone can be in my face and I hipfire with a laser... hitmarker after hitmarker and they melt me like I'm not even firing. Yet when someone hipfires me... I drop faster than I can blink.
    I did have a brief play with OpenWRT (plugging my console into OpenWRT router) and noticed people drop alot quicker than with DumaOS... but if I plug console into Duma, disable BB and just use OpenWRT SQM... peoples take forever to drop.
    I always found OpenWRT was much better with Black Ops 4 also.

    Good answer above, people still use UPnP with these settings but it can cause port conflicts which is why we recommend not to.

    Buster reacted to Bert in Problems With UPNP?   
    I'm not sure if that has to do with other settings.
     
    On my XR500 that uses PPPoE the uPNP table stays empty while on the other running DHCP it gets populated. All other settings are equal, even up to things like equal IP's for the console and wifi SSD / PW etc.
  15. Thanks
    Buster reacted to BIG__DOG in Port Triggering/UpNp   
    Port Triggering...the router senses when a port is trying to listen...from a service you have behind the NAT..and it opens, upon demand. It's sort of a predecessor to UPnP. It's done by the router. As with port forwarding I would use one of them, not a combination of them. UPnP is automatic port forwarding.

    Buster reacted to Bert in SBMM & Reverse Boosting: Down the rabbit hole....   
    So, tonight I tried a little expiriment.
     
    I have my old PS4 Slim around since I have a PS4 Pro system since a few days. Made a new account today, hooked up the PS4 Slim to a 720P plasma TV from 2005, set up the wifi connection to my XR500, no traffic rules, geofiltering or nothing. No headset, just sitting on the sofa with my feet on the table.
     
    I was attempting to reverse boost the account, so I went playing like a total noob. Just go through the map at walking speed no ADS, just hipfire at enemies. After 2 games the enemies were so shockingly bad that I had to be carefull not to go positive while hipfiring like that. From level 4 I just played the standard classes, so a AUG or Kilo without attachments. It's just amazing. I can walk right in the middle of the map on Crash by the helicopter, without getting shot at all.  Almost no claymores or mines, a few people prone but not a single player jumpshotting. I would litterally stand there hipfiring from 20 meters and they would be unable to hit a slow or stationary target. Even had multiple hipfire kill across half the map, was meaning to miss but killed them by accident LMAO. Played 20 games in total. Game 15 was a FFA game on Vacant and I was down 5-10, could not control myself any longer and won the game with 30-12 LOL. Game 16 actually had better enemies right away, not god tier but noticably better so went back to my routine before. Game 17 was on Shipment, here I was able to pull off a 23-13 just slow walking and hipfiring with a no attachment kilo. Up to game 15 I was actually at 0.5 K/D / 80 SPM, but after that at game 20 I ended 0.72 K/D 126 SPM.
     
    Some observations:
    1. I checked the ping for every game, all my games were on the Amsterdam server. I litterally had no connection issues at all over these 20 games.
    2. I found all games litterally within 5 seconds, on my main account this absolutely takes ages, sometimes 10 minutes with geofiltering on.
    3. Out of 20 games, 19 had session joiners or reverse boosters in the lobby. So the whole purpose of SBMM is kinda defeated.
    4. In those lobbies, there is only a handfull players with headsets, in my normal lobbies everybody plays with a headset.
     
     
    Playing like this kinda makes you wonder why we are beeing daft spending all that money on 1ms screens, scuf controllers, headsets, special routers etc. The better stuff you buy the harder the game gets for you with this SBMM.
     
    I can see why IW isn't listening to the complaints about matchmaking or other things though. If you play the game like that the lobbies are totally different. Dead silence doesn't matter since nobody uses a headset anyway. Weapon balance doesn't matter since your enemies miss so many shots you might as well poke them with a stick. Netcode, lagcompensation etc all of that don't matter since they react so slow you wouldn't be able to tell. If you play just casually on the TV and you don't read reddit etc you would not know about any of this.
     
    I tried session joining this account with my main account one game. It's actually not so easy since these lobbies tend to fill in a few seconds. But once you do manage to get in, you get a genuine bot lobby. I also tried partying up with that account as host and this gives harder enemies but not as hard as I normally get, more right between the two.

    It's has to be some sort of QoS on the BT network, It's affecting BT, EE & Plusnet customers - I'm seen threads on the BT forum where it's even affecting people with FTTP connections - As soon as there's any kind of media streaming happening on the connection (Netflix, Youtube etc...) the latency spikes to 100ms+

    I'd wondering whether the Windows QoS/reservation of bandwidth is causing an issue here. Could you follow this guide so you can get the max bandwidth on the PC without it interfering and see if that improves it at all? https://dottech.org/26628/how-to-force-windows-to-use-100-of-your-network-bandwidth-how-to-guide/

    5 hours I've spent trying to win 3 games on TDM for a challenge... only won 2 and have now given up!
    I've never seen camping like this on any CoD game, shit not even on Battlefield!
    Can't believe peoples have spent this much money to sit in a room and ads at the door!
    They really need to make Dead Silence a perk or nerf the footsteps into oblivion coz thats why most are doing it!

    You are most likely experiencing the same issue I & many others are having with BT, EE & Plusnet (BT Network) with prioritizing streaming/video content.
    There's a 72 page thread on the BT forums of people complaining of high latency spikes whenever there's someone streaming video content.

    Login into the BT Forums & ask a mod in the thread linked above about applying a "Fix" to your connection - Some people have had success & some others not so much.
     
    Sadly I'm with EE & they don't acknowledge this been a issue & don't guarantee ping.....
