  1. Outside of games though, The internet would still die out for a time and then come back on it seems when a dhcp lease would expire it felt like it was doing it like clockwork(could’ve been a consistent coincidence that my roommates where playing MW at this time as well)This was only with the hitton i noticed so far though so I think that puma chipset correlation is still valid gaming or not. The CM7000 is listed to include that chip so that likely could be the common demoniator(puma chip installed modems). Each game’s netcode is different. could’ve been a scenario where modern warfare possibly puts a unique aspect to ithe modem that games don’t, but hard to say. The fact that since replacing the modem with a confirmed non puma chipset resloved this issue i’ve been having for about 7 months now points to something for sure.
  2. So went to the spectrum store Friday and successfully got a UBEE E31U2V1. Since then have not had any issues since setting it up. But this is with my setup with the linksys wrt1900AC as the primary router and the XR500 i’m behind as the secondary router(with linksys having the XR500 ip address in DMZ). Played an insane amount of call of duty this whole weekend without one single crash or general disconnect from the internet. Safe to say this resolved my issue completely so far. So it had to either be the modem and/or XR500 in primary mode or a coincidence of both not liking each other but i’d put my money more on the modem with the defective puma chipset as that possibly would explain the dhcp leasing issues. This technically happened before when trying my WRT1900AC with ddwrt firmware, but thought it was the router. So I’d say likely using a non-puma chip manufactured modem ultimately resolved the issue. Such a frustrating ride, but thankful to finally get to the bottom of it! Also made a mistake regarding the netgear CM7000. I actually had a CM1000, but had these similar issues(specifically the modern warfare crashing whole internet one). So could’ve been a scenario where maybe my particular modem had the chip even though they’re not listed to have it. I had the version 1 model but they made a version 2 model so not sure what they changed(possibly the puma chip).
  3. After some further research, it also seems to be 2 of the modems i've used have this near defective and problematic puma chipset that's likely the culprit as well: Hitron E31N2V1(that I replaced like 3 times) Netgear CM700 (personally bought) Someone in this thread said that switching to a non-puma chipset modem resolved the issue specifically for the internet crashing when playing MW, but may apply to this issue overall. If any of you guys with this issue have a modem on this list, that may likely be the problem. I've yet to test it out. I spoke with spectrum to see what other modem options (rental) they have that doesn't have that puma chip and they recommended the UBEE E31U2V1 Going to try and go to the spectrum store tomorrow to get one of those and see how I fare.
  4. Whoa...So Interesting update i found out in my particular situation. So It seems that apparently, this is some issue between Modern Warfare and spectrum (My ISP) it seems: I never put the 2 together but this thread describes the exact issue i'm having and it always seemed to happen when me or my roommates who are playing Modern Warfare(Platform doesn't seem to matter but majority are xbox one x it seems which is the platform I play primarily play on but have noticed when playing on PS4Pro as well). Everyone is explaining the exact same issue I've been having for a while now. After I back out to the menu, it the internet seems to crash after roughly 2-3hrs at certain periods after I come back to the lobby. I'm in SoCal as well. Seems like it may have something to do with Spectrum interpreting Modern Warfare as a DDOS attack or something possibly. Maybe worth mentioning to some folks regarding this issue. Not quite sure if that's the case for the router as it seemed to have happened regardless(maybe someone else was playing without me knowing possibly), but I'll test this out with my current setup and let you guys know.
  5. Issue happened again last night with dhcp and server turned off on both XR500's. I went ahead and switched back to my linksys wrt1900AC as the primary router and gonna take this second one back since I doubt i'll get the beta in time before the return period closes. I was holding out to see if that would ultimately resolve. Turning off DHCP seemed to exchange one problem for another as the not being able to connect to the internet for some devices while still having the internet disconnect issue happening. Really hope 3.0 fixes this. Thanks for the help.
  6. Ok happened again right now after I was coming back to the lobby from Modern Warfare. Worked fine since last time, but I haven't been playing anything online outside of streaming which was fine. Here's the logs(Main XR500): This is from the secondary XR500(behind the first one with DMZ to this one My Xbox is behind this one with a static IP on both the router and xbox's end. I'll turn off dhcp while i'm gaming to see if it happens also with dhcp turned off on the second XR500(the ip address is static though). I recall it still happening though but will try again. Another issue that's happening to my roommate is that some devices (that I assigned a static ip via the Main XR500) won't connect even though the static ip is reserved via the router side and the static ip is set via the device side. Issue was happening with both his PC and ipad. Once I open dhcp and set to the ipad to automatic and close it connects. It was working before as well. I can say the same for my echo dot(can't assign a static IP for it). Is there any way to modify the lease times of the static IP? It seems like for some devices it's expiring it maybe? Not sure.
  7. So far since turning off dhcp and the dhcp server. 1 time, but it did do this before when dhcp was on. Like exactly after backing out to the main lobby(where you customize loadouts) is when it would seem to disconnect at certain times. haven’t gotten a chance to play more since. plan to over the weekend. Will see if it happens again.
  8. Update so it seems like turning of dhcp via wan and dhcp server via lan helps a lot, haven't gotten any intermittent drop outs since turning both dhcp and dhcp server off, but there still seems to be an issue (maybe coincidence) where when I'm playing a game online like Modern Warfare(haven't played until last night after making those adjustments) and backing out to the main menu the internet coincidentally drops out in a similar manner as well. When checking the log there's a lot of LAN remote access logs (from the ip address of the 2nd XR500 which i'm behind in my room to access the interface) and some upnp requests. Is this a known issue as well?
  9. I get nothing. The fields are blank for the ethernet adapter connected to the router. Confirmed that the ethernet card/cable works just fine. Nope turned it off since I didn't need it previously, so i know for some reason either the reset button isn't working or the OS is being stubbon on its OS and ignoring the reset. Tried both and as servers. nada for both. tried the suggested ports 2 and 3. Same deal. also just connected the duma to just the power and was trying to factory reset multple times restarting the duma. Still wouldn't factory reset.
  10. Correct turned dhcp on previously to capture the devices and add them and then I turned it off. I rebooted the modem and router and seems to be working so far though. used dhcp to capture the leased external wan ip address and then set that to static and turned dhcp server off via lan settings. That looks to be working so far since rebooting the modem and router after those changes last night. Isn't ideal of course, but i'll sure as hell take this over the sporadic complete drop outs. Curious (if DumaOS 3 doesn't resolve) if a new device tries to connect, will i be able to manually add it that way? Like will the router pick it up via the lan settings like it would if dhcp was on but just won't let it connect since it's obviously off?
  11. Been having this issue with my R1 in order to have a backup if my XR500 doesn't cut it. I'm currently not able to manually reset it or access. I believe I turned off dhcp for setting it up as a second router with more control. Also turned off wifi since I have no need for it. tried the following: -Manually rebooted by holding down the reset button for a minute for it to do nothing (did this about like 20 times to no flashing lights/Beep/ nothing) -Tried MiKrotek's recommendations for holding down the reset button as you connect the power(did this about 10 times). No dice -Tired connecting my PC and manually entering ips to try and contact the router (set my PC's IP to and Also tried http://r1 to no dice as well Anything else I can possibly try by chance?
  12. Tried this last night and to this morning, but didn't seem to work. I think it was due to just turning dhcp server off and not via wan settings. So now, I just turned both off(static ip on and turning dhcp server off) and looked to have ran into the same issue. Going to try it again another time just to be sure. rebooted both routers as well.
  13. Ok was debating doing that but was worried it would not let your devices connect at all(I assume new devices wouldn’t which is totally understandable if the ones already connected do)I’ll try that. Also signed up for the beta on netgear forums and here havent heard anything yet. Would love to provide feedback regarding this issue.
  14. For me I recall it being fine for about 48ish hrs before it started doing the same thing. (could've been a coincidence that no new devices requested a new dhcp lease during that time period I guess. But I don't have anything to lose at this point as i'm trying anything possible now as it's becoming more frequent for me. Tried the static IP thing. My method was to set it to dynamic to get the leased Ip address and then switch it to static, it seemed like it was working fine until it happened a couple times today.
  15. So another update. Issue happened about 2hrs before the ip address was supposed to reset. myself(Xbox One) and both of my roommates (PS4 and PC) were playing MW. I was on first playing for a while fine, then my (PC) roommate and (PS4)hopped on and then completely took down the internet like before. An interesting thing though that i tried(that I never did before) when checking the connection via the monitoring section is hit the renew button(assuming its essentially an Ipconfig /renew command). Connection went back up within seconds. The shortest time it ever took to come back online especially without manually rebooting the modem and router. So that may be worth exploring from a development standpoint. I’m guessing something like when the netduma isn’t getting a response maybe it can issue a renew command that would still maintain the internet connection without a noticeable issue on the front end? Additionally since I suspected that the issue is due to possibly to the XR500 assigning multiple new addresses due to the port forwarding issues. I assigned the main devices we use for gaming static IP’s for now to see if that may mitigate the issue(I want to say I did this before and it not working but I’ll try it again to be sure). Also managed to stay up for the suspected time it was going to renew the IP and it didn’t seem to change IP’s or disconnect. Claims there’s another 3hrs.
