    Make this a feature on the router itself so we can report straight from DumaOS. I think this way you would get a lot more data to strengthen the Geo-Filter.

    These are some great suggestions. I'd love to see diagnostics make a return, and there's a whole lot more diagnostic capabilities we could build when we do it. Built in speed test is also something we'd like!
    We'll see where future milestones take us; 2019 will be an exciting year for new features, so keep an eye out for 1.4!

    Bozo reacted to Netduma Luke in NEW FIRMWARE OUT (Netduma R1): DumaOS Development Milestone 1.3   
    Last month we introduced DumaOS Milestone 1.3. We are happy to announce that it is now available for all Netduma R1 users. Everyone who has signed up to the Open Beta of DumaOS will have received an email with the firmware link and installation instructions.
    If you have not signed up to the Open Beta yet, please go here: https://netduma.com/r1-dumaos/
    Nighthawk XR500/XR700 users: stay tuned for an announcement on when this will be available on your router.
    This milestone includes:
    Ping Assist v2: it's 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.  Hybrid VPN: apply your VPN to your entire network and also choose the devices and applications you want to put through your VPN using DumaOS Deep Packet Inspection. Advanced Ping Stats: 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. Device Manager Enhancements: shows every device on your Network and you can now view this as a sortable table, to give you easier administration. This is the first of many DumaOS milestones which we will continue to roll out to make your router even more powerful.
    Have fun.

    Bozo 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.

    @Netduma Admin @Netduma Fraser
    So I have done some more testing and have found the following:
    1) Dedicated servers appear to be correctly Geo-Filtered. When I connect to dedicated servers their locations correlate with the Ping I am getting (No issues with dedicated servers).
    2) Every single Peer Hosted server I have connected to in Black Ops 4 is not correctly Located on the Geo-Filter. I have been able to compile a list below of the servers:

    Bozo reacted to Netduma Fraser in Black Ops 4 Geo-Filter Cloud needs your help!   
    Hi all, 
    I am in the process of going through all the Black Ops 4 servers available to determine if they are classified correctly i.e. Peer/Dedicated and to ensure they're in the correct location. I believe most are correct. However, I need a lot of ID's/IP addresses in order to do a thorough job of making sure once a cloud update goes out that I've got everything accurate the first time around. So please if you get a chance to help provide the following information by following these instructions (Written for PS4 but works on Xbox & PC). Even if you only have time for one it will be very helpful.
    Wait on the console dashboard Have the Geo-Filter set with Filtering Mode on, home location in the ocean, strict mode enabled. Auto Ping disabled. Boot up Black Ops 4, when it gets to the point where you have to click 'x', click x and then look at the Geo-Filter. You should see all the servers on the world map.  Click on any one of these servers then collect (please only post in this format or it will be hard to follow):
    Server location on the map
    Host Type
    ID
    Domain
    Ping 
    Your location Once you've collected this, quit the game application completely so you're back on the console dashboard and repeat. The more information we get from users the more accurate we can be when we do a cloud update. Post the collected information here. Thanks for your help!

    Hi Duma Army,
     
    We need to announce that the free upgrade of our new software, DumaOS, for the Netduma R1 will need to be briefly delayed due to unexpected requirement from our Legal Team. Our lawyers have advised that DumaOS on the R1 must be backwards compatible.
     
    In other words, if you install DumaOS onto the R1 you should always have the option to reinstall the older R1 firmware if you prefer to go back. We had not designed the DumaOS integration with the R1 to allow for this as DumaOS is superior. But based on legal advice we now must redo the integration to allow for this. It should take, at absolute most, a few more weeks. Nothing more as we have everything else working.
     
    We realise you have been waiting patiently for this upgrade and this last-minute delay is frustrating. Our entire development team is working flat out to get this last bit fixed as soon as possible as we really want you all on DumaOS.
     
    For what it's worth, we're as frustrated as you are as we can't wait to start making lots of new R-Apps (features) for you all. 
     
    We will get this last piece done as soon as possible and then it will be full steam ahead in delivering an explosion of new DumaOS features for you all.
     
    Thank you for your continued support.

    Bozo reacted to Netduma Jack in Google Home and Cromecast Issues   
    Hi - thanks for bringing this to our attention. We're going through a heavy transition period at the moment having just announced our partnership with Netgear, which may mean we don't get around to releasing a fix for this issue before Google release the fix themselves.
     
    That being said, I'm not sure that this article is referring to us being able to -fix- the issue with an update - I believe this article might be suggesting that updating the router could increase the lifespan of the router if this packet burst issue is occurring. I'll have to check with our programmers, though I'm not sure if there's anything we can do to permanently protect against this from our end.
     
    I'm certain that Google will be the first to release a fix for their devices. If you're within your warranty period (1 year after purchase) then you will be protected if your router is broken by this issue.

    Bozo reacted to EldestTheGreat in PS4 and XB1 Playing Simultaneously, But Both Are Extremely jittery.   
    So my girlfriend and I play BO3 on 2 consoles, the PS4 and XB1. Both are hardwired. Both have an open NAT with UPNP enabled. I've tried spilting the bandwidth 50/50 with share excess enabled so our phones could at least be on the WiFi but idle. It's very weird because if I sit at the main menu and watch her play. Her connection looks like the Mark of J, but as soon as I begin to play, the jitter returns. Now, I have the sliders to 70% and Hyper traffic off for both as putting either one in it made it worse for both. Nothing has helped. There's no reason for spikes at all as no one uses the Internet except for her. Line quality is an A with a BB of A too. Not to mention a 6ms ping to my ISP. Is there some way to fix this other than using my ethernet hub and spilting the connection off to just strictly 2 devices? Because I tried that and it worked perfectly fine. Thanks in advance, gentlemen!

    Bozo reacted to Netduma Iain in DumaOS - Development Update   
    Hello to old friends and hopefully new ones I'll get to know. Sorry I've been away for so long, developing version 2.0 (named DumaOS) has been a mammoth task.
     
    As a reminder, DumaOS is the next version of the software. We've been working on this for over 6 months now and it is a huge transformation from our older versions. It will be a free upgrade to all NETDUMA R1 customers.
     
    We had planned on releasing DumaOS this Autumn. However it is been a much larger task than we originally foresaw. As we've gone through development we've realised just how many more features we can add so we've taken the time to do this now to make the OS as great as it can be for you guys. We're very proud of it and we think it blows even our current router software out of the water (which already blew the other routers out the water ).
     
    The new timeline is below. No doubt some of you may be disappointed and that is fair. But please beware that 1) the upgrade is free of charge 2) we'd much rather give you a stable version with awesome features than a rushed version which is buggy.
    Mid December - Early closed beta: this will be just be a handful of users because most people would not be willing to use this software in this state because it will be a downgrade from your current versions Mid January - Coal Mine beta: a much more developed version of the OS which, like with previous upgrades, will be available to all the Canaries in the coal mine to test Mid February - Open beta: a public beta which you can all apply to be a part of. This version will have all the major new features ready for testing (including anti-jitter, anti-spike and much much more that we can't reveal yet!) Full Launch: sometime after the Open Beta, dependent on feedback I'm feeling pretty confident with these deadlines but you never know with software. It could end up being before or after but there shouldn't be any major surprises.
     
    Thanks so much for supporting NETDUMA all this time, we're really confident you're gonna love DumaOS as it truly transforms routers in a way not seen before.
     
    Below is a little teaser. It is the least interesting feature but gives a lot of clues about what’s is to come. Have fun speculating
     

     
    -Iain
    CTO and founder
     
    PS look forward to being involved in the forum much more as we start the closed beta.
