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?
Buster reacted to titofuenla in R1 DumaOS Briefly Delayed
So your main assignment, what is it? discredit ND and make it have no customers? really? Come on, what you are is a fucking troll, right?
really, buy a bag of friends and go out to the street to give you a little air, your life is very painful
Buster reacted to simjc in Upnp problem
Interesting... The HG612 (BT Open Reach PPPoE) modem is exactly the same model I have. The R1 opens UPnP ports reliably with it and lists those ports for all devices. What you are describing is what I have been experiencing. I have found I have to launch games in quick sucession (load, quit, re-load) to get an open NAT, and like yourself no ports will be listed on the upnp page even when increasing time to live option. Only 1 entry has ever appeared and that is for the XB1 XBL service, and nothing else.
Buster reacted to Netduma Fraser in Port Triggering page - glitch ?
I was able to reproduce this so I will let the Netgear development team know as Settings is their domain.
Port Triggering & Port Forwarding are not the exact same. If you want to do port forwarding properly go to Settings > Port Forwarding. Though there should be no need to port forward for CoD, UPnP should open the ports necessary automatically.
Buster reacted to Netduma Fraser in Upnp problem
Are the devices that would require an opened port e.g. CoD on Xbox actually online at that time? If so click the refresh button on the UPnP page. UPnP opens ports as and when they're needed so if it's not being used it may not be shown. Also are you using the XR500 DMZ?
Buster reacted to BIG__DOG in Major Announcement: Netduma partner with NETGEAR to launch the Nighthawk XR500 Gaming Router
New hardware?.........well I didnt see this coming did I?........LOL
I aint impressed at the wait for the new OS, far from it. WE, who are loyal netduma users, some of us are very early apopters and purchasers SHOULD get the OS first. HOWEVER, I have a feeling this may be down to Netgears t's & c's but it still sucks..........So the almost utter silence was probably part of an N.D.A.
On a positive note, netgear software is total and utter wank so the dumaOS is gonna be night and day improvement.
Congratulations to netduma on partnering and growing your business and I wish you every success in the future.
Buster reacted to Sgt-Greco in Gigabit Fiber Settings - The struggle is real
Happy New Year.
Killcams are screenshots stiched together, thus very far from being accurate.
Netduma works perfect for me but I still believe that the game will put you in the best dedi possible when your service is disabled. So I use it only when I want to force p2p.
Buster reacted to BIG__DOG in Router keeps resetting
go to misc settings and make sure cookies is enabled........if it is not enabled then any settings you make will be unsaved!
for a complete and consice guide on setting up the netduma follow sim's video. It is long but covers everything you could ever wish to know about configuring and getting the best from your netduma.
