  1. Thanks. I'm aware they have some partnership with Netgear with the routers like the xr300 that have been realised. I have the R1 myself and have for a number of years. I was wondering if it was an exclusive deal or will we see it on the likes of Tp-link and such. Like N3CR0 I would much rather they do there own R2 though.
  2. As the title, does Netduma have an exclusive deal with Netgear? In the future will we see DumaOS on other hardware manufacturers or maybe there own?
  3. Perfect, thank you. hopefully it all continues to work now and time to find an access point. Although the wifi has gone slightly faster now I still want a dual band wifi. Thanks for all the help.
  4. Thank you, that's what I mean though, under the WAN section there are 3 sub sections (DHCP - Static - PPPoE) all of these are blank right now, I haven't put details into any of them. Which of these do I put the DNS details into as all the sections have DNS boxes.
  5. Right, I think I've finally sorted it all. The WAN IP started showing up when I disconnected the modem from the ISP router. So I put that IP as the dmz on the ISP router and turned off the wifi.On the R1 I've left the sections under WAN > Network all blank. So DHCP, Static and PPPoE are all blank and it seems to be working as it should now, a part from being a cable mess! The wired speed is the full speed it should be and cpu usage doesn't go above 60%. I still think I will get an access point though for the 5Ghz wifi. Thank you for all the help, I know this dragged on a bit. If I want to use a different DNS, where and how do I set that? On the R1 or the ISP router? Is it's on the R1, what section to I put it in?
  6. Thank for explaining. Do you know why the WAN ip isn't showing? This is with the R1 connected to the open reach modem, nothing else.
  7. This is without the other router, I thought I had to get Internet through the R1 to get a WAN ip so I removed the isp router. At the moment it is just the R1 connected to the modem and that's it, and the Internet is working. Also, port wise, if the isp router needs to be connected to port 1 on the R1, does the other end of that cable need to be connected to the WAN port on the isp router or any port? Only because I have to connect the modem to the WAN port on the isp router. Does this make sense?
  8. That's what I mean, I can't see it. Am I just being an idiot and completely missing it or is it not there?
  9. Ok so I've been trying to set this up this tonight to see if I can get it to work by using my ISP router between the openreach modem and the R1. I've found the section on my ISP router for dmz and I put the router IP ( which I think is wrong? I need to put the WAN IP, correct? How do I find that on DumaOS though, I can't find it anywhere. I've attached a picture where it just says WAN IP but doesn't actually show it. Should it be there or is it somewhere else?
  10. OK I will give this ago as I have an old router my ISP gave me. I will see how that goes. When I do this, does the ISP router have to be connected to the poe port on the R1 or can it connect to any? I'm just wondering if I get an access point for wireless if I can run that off the poe on the R1 or if I need to find another power plug for it as I'm not sure I have any spare plugs now!
  11. I do have my isp router which I can put between the modem and R1 but won't that mean anything I do on the R1 like congestion control will be overridden by the isp router?
  12. Oh right, well there's nothing that can be done about that is there? I have to use the username and password to connect to the Internet. I don't know anyone who doesn't.
  13. Oh right, in that case yes I'm using PPPoE as I'm using a username and password.
  14. I could only find two options for IPv6 which were both disabled, and I don't have an ISP hub. I have the R1 connected to an open reach modem and that's it. PPPoE and VLAN I'm not sure what you mean, an option turned on when it shouldn't be? QoS was enabled as far am in aware. There is no switch or other router. I will check the device manager when I get chance. There are no custom rules in traffic prioritisation, I haven't touched them. Again it was only until I changed the upload limit then it worked. Just thought I should mention it incase it was an issue you hadn't come across.
  15. I've just tried again, IPv6 was disabled by default (slider was white) under LAN and WAN settings. I couldn't find it anywhere else. Didn't make a difference. I tried again with the bufferbloat limiting the speed, and just changing the download speed and running a speed test it seemed to ignore it and was still getting 50mbps instead of the 20mbps I set it to. I ran the test twice and same thing but then I changed the upload as well and this time the download was limited. I don't know if that is an error or just a delay in the settings taking affect. Regardless CPU is always hitting maximum. I've attached a log from just after the download limit was ignored is case you wanted to see it.
