  1. I totally get where you are coming from. My main thing obviously is that I want this product to be THE product for gamers. It has such huge potential. As stupid as it sounds I want Netduma to be the best Netduma it can damn well be. To address having game devs put a server selector in their games wouldn't necessarily change things. For example. You can select your server on Apex Legends but nodes in that cluster might have a terrible tick or other networking issues that impact your gameplay. For that reason alone I see the geofilter to be of use as I can ban that particular node. Thanks for answering my feedback post. I love you guys. DO GREAT THINGS!
  2. So this might come off as I'm being an @$$hole but, I have a few issues about the company in general. First thing is first, we have the forum here for troubleshooting/feature requests and that allows for consumers of the product to assist with helping other users solve their issue or help expand on ideas for the product. That is a great idea. Here is why it works in many other cases but not here: DumaOS being closed sourced. This model has thrived in that ecosystem due to a product being open source. Even chrome which is closed source has the Chromium open source version. Another issue I have is a $200-$500 product being sold with no telephone, chat, or other means of industry standard communication for technical assistance. Yes Netgear has technical support, but since they are not the provider of the OS I highly doubt they have same knowledge and understand as the forum admins here do. That brings me to my 3rd issue. I have been working in the technology field for now over 10 years. Going through some of the forum posts and also ones that I have created pertaining to issues with the OS I see a lot of cookie cutter troubleshooting. Factory reset, downgrade firmware and upgrade back to it, turn it off and turn it back on. While these solutions do work for the time being that does not solve the actual issue of why it is occurring. Now I do have faith that some of the error codes that are posted or log files that are posted are being sent to devs and are working on reducing these issues. I'm not expecting this product to work with out fault. I understand that the DumaOS for the R1 is in Open Beta. Lastly is the cat and mouse games with the geofilter. If a new game comes out tomorrow without warning we want to use our router with that new game come day one or day two. This ties in with the fact that the OS is closed source and we are solely reliant on you guys to provide free updates to support a game. With all of that being said here are some of my thoughts on how to address the issues I have mentioned. Make the OS Open Source or at least allow a "basic" version of the OS without the bells and whistles and open up the development for DumaOS to the public. The best part about this is if there are apps, bug fixes, or features, this will rapidly grow the usability and stability of the router. Implement an industry standard tech support system not a simple forum. Users that have purchased a device (at least as far as here in the US) expect some sort of professional support where they can get a human response in X amount of minutes. Implement a bug tracker system where we can report an issue and check on it to see that the status. i.e. received bug report, identified issue, testing patch, bug fixed or something like that. Reach out to game developers or publishers and see if you can get a heads up of where clusters are for the servers. Attempt to get early access to a games online functionality and place it in your environment so when a game drops it's supported immediately. To the admins and mods of this forum, and employees of Netduma please take this constructively. You guys changed the game with this router. As a consumer I want this product to be hooked up in every gamer setup because it has huge potential and I love the product (when it works lol). Thank you for taking the time to read this and I'm absolutely open to discussing in more depth some of the points I have made. *If this is in the wrong section please move*
  3. I'll give this a shot tonight. Am I able to use the geofilter in spectator mode while still banning particular servers?
  4. Yes. I have tried all of that. It's super frustrating but I have spend about and hour and a half trying to figure this out. And even though I'm on PC I should set it to console? Which console? Also what profile should I be selecting? I am currently using Source Engine. Also, I don't mean this sarcastically but I have been working in IT for over a decade. You can get technical with me. I know the difference between wifi and ethernet.
  5. Here is what I have tried in no particular order: Downgrading firmware then upgrading to DumaOS Factory reset Reboot Deleted my computer from the duma and re-added it Edit* I also did a cloud flush and changed my device to an xbox and a ps4 and still don't get any icons on the geofilter. Currently I only have it in spectate mode just so I can see what server I'm on but it doesn't even show any servers. This was the same thing as Black Ops 4. It wasn't finding games in BO4 but I can still find games in Apex. Video is below. Profile is set to: Source Engine (CS:GO, DOTA 2, TF2 etc) https://streamable.com/b3wxk
  6. Latest. I have disconnected my Netduma. It seems there is no fix in sight for this. I'm just going to use my normal gateway... What a waste....
  7. Still no dice. Even after waiting 1-2 minutes it was still putting me in that lobby in multi-player.
  8. Sorry for the late reply, work has been crazy. Here are some screenshots of the settings I usually play on. And yes I delete the device after changing the type and re-add it. I was actually able to find a lobby but it was close by and I had a 150ms ping to it. Naturally I just Denied it but I was still queuing up in that lobby. You can see in the screen shot the server is banned yet I'm still connected to it. Typically when I ban a server while connected to it I get a Network Disconnection Error then the I'm kicked from the lobby. I stayed connected after denying this server.
  9. Running the latest version of DumaOS. I have tried the following: Downgrading - works but I would like to enjoy both DumaOS and BO4 Changing my device to a PS4/Xbox - No lobbies Downgrading then upgrading without "preserve settings" to do a clean upgrade Fast Search ticked/unticked Ping assist set to 50-100ms Radius set to 500+ miles Removing my PC from the geofilter completely Flush Cloud Factory reset But what is magical is if I use my other router I get into decent lobby almost instantly 50ms +/- Another thing I have noticed is that while searching on original R1 firmware I see different icons showing up on the geofilter before I get into a game This does not occur on DumaOS. The only time I see icons on the geofilter while running dumaOS is at launch. After that they go away. To add: I'm in Philadelphia right next to the NJ servers. More likely than not I get a 30-40ms ping ingame on multiplayer.
  10. I'm still having the same issue as well and I'm in the same area. (greater Philadelphia area). It will show the above screenshot in boot but while searching for a game I don't get a single icon in the entire map. I'm literally 50ish miles away from the NJ server. Also have open NAT and I have my Duma as my gateway. I have fiber and direct connect the Duma to my ONT.
  11. I reverted back to the old OS Edit: Same result now. I'm not sure what is going on.
  12. That's a negative. Sitting here searching. Ping assist at 80 Fast Search enabled Strict Mode enabled. Old R1 OS worked fine. Got into a low ping lobby (40-50ms) Looking at the log, every time I search for a game I see this: "Thu Nov 29 00:08:52 2018 kern.info dpiclass-daemon: Kill flow due to timeout" Uploading full log log-1543450339518.txt
  13. Decided to test the old firmware and got into a game right away with low latency. Okay Just upgraded to DumaOS and now I can't access I get an ip address but no web gui. And I have no internet. Edit: Held the reset button on the back in for 10 seconds and it's up and running on DumaOS
  14. I would agree with you but the moment I switch routers I can find a game instantly.
