Buster reacted to bagsta69 in Does Activision have a blacklist?
I put out a challenge to players a couple of years ago who were saying they had the magic formula to get great games, lowering upload etc. I asked for any of them to put up a video showing 5 games in a row unbroken to prove their theories. Not 1 taker. the game is what the game is. all you can do is set things to get the best connection and just play. you will have good games and bad games but you will go insane trying to adjust stuff to get good game after good game. far to many variables. Just my honest opinion you understand and my experience.
Buster reacted to Zippy in Please read this everyone now for cod mw2019
Just to give this another bump but also give some more info on this.. As I have had this XR500 for about four months now ive learned a lot about this port prioritization.. With the XR500 putting trust in this little red light seems to be very inconsistent.. I know DumaOS has made this easy for us by having all the ports built in so all we have to do is click on DumaOS classified games and are good to go.. But to keep everyone honest and make trouble shooting a bit easier I think what needs to be in future builds is when this little red light comes on it should also list the port numbers that are being prioritized.. And what ones are UDP and TCP for that matter.. That way we can use this info to make sure everything is correct and working as it should. Currently im finding discrepancies in the current system.. Other routers do currently use a system like this already and have been for sometime. So I think this would make a good addition to what is already there and can give us some good details on what exactly is going on then just this little red light.. Don't get me wrong its nice to have one click and let DumaOS take care of the rest.. But it also makes it very difficult to verify anything when it comes to this without seeing whats actually taking place.. I think with just the amount of people that have currently voted should give more then enough insight to see there is interest in these type of features. Granted this maybe not exactly what the Op is suggesting word for word but its along those lines.. What I find confusing is it sounds like the R1 at one time had similar features as this..But currently not anymore.. Which really makes me scratch my head as to why.. Thanks!
Buster reacted to N3CR0 in MarkofJ's MW review... He makes ALOT of good points!
Although true about being biased... everything he says in this vid is true. This is a game that nobody asked for or wanted.
Again they have made, like Black Ops 4 a game that caters for bad players.
Buster reacted to Netduma Fraser in modem router + xr500 2 dhcp servers
I wouldn't suggest disabling it on either, you could disable it on the hub if you give the XR500 a static IP on it first but otherwise it's not a good idea. It won't help you get an Open NAT. If it doesn't have modem or bridge mode and no DMZ then you should port forward 1-65535 TCP/UDP to the XR500 and make sure no devices connected to the hub and that'll be a make shift DMZ.
Buster reacted to simjc in BT Openreach modem Hauwei hg612 unlocked set up
I use the Draytek Vigor 130, and it gets me 2-3ms lower latency compared to the OpenReach bg612 (standard, not unlocked). I can see all the line stats but only when directly connected to the modem, which is a drawback, when one has line issues (faults), as you have to unplug router. They (draytek) have a feature that will publish info to other draytek routers, haven't checked to see if other public plugins available for other routers to get that info. When my line has been stable (no rain) its stayed in fastpath with 7ms latency for 4wks. The firmware gets regularly updated too. Minor fixes generally.
Buster reacted to simjc in BT Openreach modem Hauwei hg612 unlocked set up
Oh and additionally there may be a fancy way of connecting to the modem provided your ISP uses vlan tagging ethernet side wise. Requires one to use a tagged and untagged. Will investigate later this week, as that will be real handy.
Buster reacted to flexingjohn in I'd love DumaOs Router/Modem
Just for discussion..
I'd love a Netduma Router that has DSL port built in so i have only 1 Modem/router setup. Instead if having 2 products. Is this a possibility for the future?
For me the Benefits are
no extra wires/ Ethernet's running all over
the DumaOs does all handles Everything and be plugged straight in the BT Socket skipping my Vigor 130 modem.
Would be "AWESOME" tho!
Buster reacted to BIG__DOG in Port Forwarding on XR500/XR700
For all of you that are new to port forwarding and want to use it as a more reliable way of opening ports that are needed for your gaming needs then look no further than the portforward.com guide to help you with a step by step guide. Please remember to disable upnp as you cannot port forward and use upnp at the same time without port conflicts.
Buster got a reaction from BIG__DOG in BT Openreach modem Hauwei hg612 unlocked set up
I have the xr500 and I WOULD prefer to use it but the problem there is my upnp table does not populate , i am on the latest firmware and I have had Fraser do a 1 on 1 for that issue but no luck so far.
Also thanks for the link...exactly what I was looking for!!
Buster reacted to RL317 in Reverting to Original Firmware
Nice one. That was pretty useful when I needed to swap a modem or cable out to make sure my line hadn't gone to *beep* lmao
Plus now I'm using the Huawei HG612 modem for its bridge mode, I can't access the GUI through the R1 as you can with a regular ISP hub because you need to plug into its second LAN port and change your laptop IP to access it - a bit of a kerfuffle if you just want to check something quickly. The Netduma Diagnostic test lets you easily check if you've been switched from fast path to interleaving on the go with your phone.
Buster reacted to RL317 in How are you finding DumaOS on the R1?
Installation went without a hitch, except for me not realising you need to use "admin" and "password" to sign in to the GUI lol
I just loaded up Infinite Warfare for the first time in a few weeks and got a nuke in my first game with DumaOS LMAO. Something was next level broken with my connection for over a year on BT (and the same when I moved to TalkTalk) - I could get tiny latency, negligible jitter (I'm talking 50-100 MICROSECONDS at worst), zero packet loss etc, yet CoD matches would play like I was on a one bar. One day I bridged my PS4 connection through my laptop to run Wireshark and found I was getting UDP latency between packets as high as 2650ms between me and my local CoD server in the UK, which I can ping in a constant flat 7ms. I could fire my gun at a guy and not get a hitmarker for 200ms on a good day, over 500ms on a bad day, and it was genuinely like playing on a one bar... or half a bar ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ anyway I set up my DumaOS settings and after having some issues with UPnP, it was 2am by the time I found a game. I set a 750 mile radius around my home location dot in the south of England, had to wait a while because of the time, and all I could find was a late join but it'd taken long enough to find that match so I just said eff it and spawned in. A tryhard on the other team was 17-2, decimating my team; I even had a 3KD teammate who was getting rocked. I died a couple of times, once when weak, once when running unaware out of my spawn, and then I got a nuke LOL. This guy gets creamed not long after the tide turned and dashboards
I turned off after that just because I'm tired and lobbies were pretty empty anyway. Of course it's only one game but it seems better to me ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ all I can do is get on tomorrow in the day time and hope it's consistently better, but it's a good start. I always wondered if the R1 was causing problems before, perhaps with how I installed the last original OS update? Idk, all I can do is speculate...
Couple of things I should report after flicking through the GUI:
• There are issues with certain drop down menus. For example on the geofilter map zoom setting, it fades into the background and it's hard to see the magnification settings. With the advanced traffic prio drop down box (the one where you pick TCP/UDP) it just doesn't pop up at all. The background glows to acknowledge you're clicking on it, but that's it. Same goes for trying to change device type on device manager (a phone of mine is stuck as a "computer").
• The LAN/WAN settings menu is buggy. Unless you move your cursor around or click random stuff beforehand, you cannot select PPPoE or static, or the options in those menus (such as MTU). Only after randomly clicking other settings can you interact with them. Also if you look at the LAN side and then click another submenu (such as UPnP or port forwarding), the screens seem to layer on top of each other making everything an indecipherable mess. Only by moving your cursor outside of the confines of that menu can you remove the additional text to see what you're trying to look at.
• UPnP does not work at all. When I first set everything up, I simply turned it on and then rebooted the R1 when I had everything set up. I turned on my PS4, loaded up IW and had a moderate NAT. I went back to the UPnP screen and nothing was showing up (it should have shown UDP 9308 and 3074). I disabled UPnP, re-enabled it, rebooted my console, loaded up the game and still it was moderate. I then came here to look for a fix and someone mentioned that it normally forces ports to open if you run a PS4 connection test (which takes care of 9308) and then simply join a lobby in CoD (and 3074 will open), but that did nothing so I just played with moderate NAT. I wouldn't mind using port forwarding (assuming it doesn't cause GUI freezing and WiFi dropouts when the geofilter is enabled at the same time, as happened with the original R1 firmware), but I use Remote Play and the ports used by my phone change all the time so I can't simply look them up and manually forward them. Obviously this is more serious than a few graphical issues as above, so it should be addressed first.
• Doesn't run well on a mobile browser. Unfortunately you can only see half of the screen of the GUI on a mobile browser, while the old firmware ran flawlessly on Android Chrome. You can get away with forcing the desktop version of the site, but that makes it more difficult to use and navigate due to shrinking everything.
Sorry for the essay but, yeah... I'm pretty happy overall. Only a few minor niggles to iron out, with a broken UPnP arguably being the most problematic.
While I'm here I'd just like to thank the team for the invitation and opportunity to try this out. Cheers and happy gaming my fellow nerds 🤓

Buster reacted to Zennon in CTRL + Windows Key + R Scam
I have had many customers that have been fooled by this scam and have paid them.
One guy got scammed we sorted his PC removed the remote access and serviced the machine, I spent a good twenty minutes talking about the scam and what to do in the future for the same guy to come back two days later after being scammed by the same people again.
Giving them money on both occasions, he came back to us kicking right off at me, it was my fault I see that now 🤔 😂
Buster reacted to RL317 in Weird Right Stick Controller Lag PS4 (Please Help)
Yeah I'm thinking something in the home is causing issues.
@fakkel did you try using your friend's controller on their console, or on your own at home? If you can maybe test your own controller at a friend's house on their console you could confirm that the issue is down to something causing interference around your console. Have you tried turning off other Bluetooth-enabled devices to eliminate that?
