    AsNCo got a reaction from Locosano in APEX Legends! is amazing... Have not played cod in days.   
    Agree. For once, a sliding mechanism that makes sense. To slide down quickly and get out of harm's way or to escape the ring.
    Better than what any of the current COD developers does. Nice to have the old original MW2 devs make such a great game as Apex Legends.

    It's in the works; there's always a new version in development. We might drop it a bit like Apex Legends or an Eminem album; nobody will see it coming

    AsNCo got a reaction from Mement in Announcement: DumaOS Development Milestone 1.3   
    It's been 2 months since I asked about my issue and on Sept 14, you said you had a fix that is working stable. Yet I didn't expect 2 months later, and I am still not getting the fix. 😂

    I thought the purpose of R-Apps is so that individual apps can be updated without waiting for an entire firmware update. 

    The wait continues... At least one good thing out of the wait is once the fix is out, all my woes are over. 😁

    AsNCo got a reaction from Netduma Fraser in Extremely slow speeds on XR500   
    Last time, when I was having speed issues, what was advisable was for me to back up my router settings/profiles. And then do a factory reset. There were a few times when that solved the issue.


    I then also back up the 'Factory Reset' settings/profile and then try to restore the old settings and see if the problem still occurs.

    If it does, you can either see through all the differences in the settings between the old and new one and see what might be the culprit.
    Or since the factory reset one fixes the issue, you can just start re-entering the old values back into the new factory reset profile.


    The problem happened to me when I never even meddled with my router settings for months and out of nowhere, it seems to be affected. A simple factory reset sometimes fixes these issues. Who knows. It might help for you too.

    AsNCo reacted to Netduma Luke in Announcement: DumaOS Development Milestone 1.3   
    About two years ago we made the biggest decision in our company’s history. We knew we had the best router software on the market, but we were not developing at the speed we wanted to.
    Every time we made a change, we were forced to repeat the same steps each time. Not to mention, a single change risked breaking other features.
    Netduma Dev Team c. 2016
    We pulled the trigger. We decided to start-over again, taking all the lessons from our launch to design an entirely new firmware. We made DumaOS, the router operating system for your home.
    DumaOS gives us the foundations to develop new features, which we call ‘R-Apps’ (‘Router Apps’), at incredible speed. And we will be doing this from now on in a series of Development Milestones. Each Milestone will bring more functionality to your DumaOS-powered router, solving the real problems you face online.
    Netduma Dev Team - Present Day
    Before we go any further, some important rules:
    Predicting software development is tricky, sometimes things go much faster than you expect, sometimes they go slower.  So until we are certain, the ETA of a milestone will always be ‘Whenever it’s ready’. The contents of a Milestone could change. We might need to defer some of it to a future Milestone, or we might be able to squeeze in some extras. Milestones may not always roll out to every DumaOS powered router at the same time or with the same contents. With the housekeeping out of the way, let’s get onto the fun bit:
    Milestone 1.3

    Milestone 1.3 is the first publicly announced Milestone for DumaOS. It brings cutting-edge new technology, as well as old favourites, to your DumaOS powered router, enabling you to take even more control over your network.
    Ping Assist v2

    Ping Assist is back, and it’s better than ever. Ping Assist lets low ping hosts to connect to you even if they are outside your Geo-Filter limit, helping you to quickly find high quality, low ping games.
    DumaOS Ping Assist is a big step up on the original Netduma R1 Ping Assist - we have rewritten the whole feature to be far more effective at quickly detecting pings – meaning you can find the best hosts on the planet much faster than before. The results are truly incredible, especially in games like Black Ops 4, Fornite, PUBG, Overwatch, FIFA 19 and many others.
    Hybrid VPN

    Another return of an old favourite. Hybrid VPN lets you apply your VPN to your entire network and also lets you choose the devices and applications you want to put through your VPN using DumaOS Deep Packet Inspection.
    This gives you so much more flexibility than a standard VPN, allowing you to keep the vulnerable areas of your network private and secure without affecting the devices that don't need a VPN. Hybrid VPN works with any VPN provider that uses OpenVPN (almost all do).
    Advanced Ping Stats

    There’s a new buzzword in town: Server Tickrate. This is the number of updates a game server makes per second. If your game runs at 60 frames per second, you ideally want a Tickrate at 60Hz (60 updates per second).
    Knowing the importance of this metric to our users, we have created Advanced Ping Stats. You can now see the Server (Host) Tickrate and Receive Rate, as well as your own Client Tickrate and Send Rate. This allows you to see the quality of your game's connection in far more detail than ever before. You can also pin to your DumaOS Dashboard for quick reference in-game.
    This is just the beginning for this feature. Now we are capturing server metrics we can do some cool things to give you an edge. Look out for more in future Milestones.
    Device Manager Enhancements

    The DumaOS Device Manager shows every device on your Network and you can now view this as a sortable table, to give you easier administration.
    We Need You!

    Milestone 1.3 is has been driven by user feedback. So if you have any ideas or suggestions for suggestions, let us know on the forum.

    It would only be specific devices that support ad so if you don't have any devices like that (I don't think they're hugely common) then you won't be able to use it as far as I am aware.

    Users with modem/router combos that can't bridge them can also use a feature known as DMZ and this will help with this double NAT condition when using modem/router combo units.
     
    Looks like your speeds are to spec and worth the tedious hassle of working with your ISP to get that.    I'm jealous.

    Oh I see, well I actually tested the fix for this yesterday and because a device that had connected to the router when wifi extender wasn't being used has a different MAC address to when it's connected to the extender it created two different devices but couldn't tell what it was called when connected to the extender. Now it's merged into one device with both MAC addresses and keeps the name so this will resolve that issue.

    This is an issue we're literally reproducing now so we can work on a fix. Basically as far as I can tell, the extender is creating a separate device by giving it a virtual MAC address similar to the original. As its different the router doesn't know what it is. Most likely the the fix will be to scan for/allow detection of virtual MAC addresses and therefore just keep it to the original device name and would stop unnamed devices. We're using the EX8000 also so this is the exact issue we're seeing so rest assured it will be fixed.

    AsNCo got a reaction from Netduma Fraser in Higher ping with xr500 compared to R1   
    As you can see from the stats you provided, all the connections from your PC to the Router gives you a (less than) <1ms response time.
    The problem seems to occur at 2nd line where the router tries to talk to your modem/TP-Link router. Could be a bad quality cable that you've put there which is prone to electronic interference such as with the router and modem all clumped up together side by side. Thus the addition to make the <1ms become 1ms. But this is all within a margin of error from unexpected interference.
     
    But as you can see under 
     
    Internet via XR500 directly (FW 2.3.2.22): lines 3 and 4
     
    and
     
    Internet via TP-Link through XR500: lines 5 and 6, 
     
    the majority of the already minuscule latency increase happens at this part which is already out of the router's control and is actually an increased latency of 2-3ms between your ISP server to another server during the hops. Literally nothing to do with the XR500 already.
     
    Since you are eager to get to the bottom of this, perhaps you can send this report to your ISP and demand an explanation for the increase in latency in between hops? 
    Being sarcastic at the end there. But I hope you understand what I mean from the above.

    I know for a fact that the RT-AC68U router has far better range than the XR500 running Merlin Firmware (I still own it). BUT there is nothing that compares to the XR500 when it comes to gaming. XR500 with a CM1000 docsis 3.1 modem as of right now is the best combo in my opinion.

    They stagger out the automatic updates so say if a major bug somehow slipped through and prevented internet access it wouldn't affect every single router.

    AsNCo got a reaction from Netduma Fraser in WIFI just vanishes for both 2.4 and 5Ghz   
    Hi. Sure. Sorry for the late reply. Did not have the time to test the backup again due to many home automations in the house depending on WiFi at any point of time.

    Alas, I had the time now and I now know how to use the WiFi button on the router. lol

    So it seems the backup settings are useless in this situation to replicate the bug that turned off WiFi by itself. For now, I'll rule it out as maybe my cat was curious and stepped on the router's WiFi button for 2 seconds that turned off the WiFi for now. But if the issue resurfaces, I'll be sure to let you know. Thanks once again for the fast response.!

    I have a few headsets for gaming, never been a huge fan of so called "gaming headsets" as they are way overpriced and are of lower quality than true audiophile  headsets.
     
    I have Sennheiser HD 598
    Sennheiser HD 650
    Sennheiser PC 360 (only gaming headset I own and really like)
    Beyerdynamic DT 880 and DT 990
    Audio - Technica AD700 ( might be my favorite for gaming as the soundstage is HUGE IMO )
    Phillips Fidelio X
    And both AntLion ModMic and the Labtec LVA 7330,I prefer the Modmic but both are great as an add on mic to a truly audiophile set of cans.
