    Netduma Jack got a reaction from Corbula in Geofilter searching change   
    We'll be announcing what its purpose is when it's out, likely next week I believe it's largely for issues Modern Warfare players have been reporting.
    Not just server locations, but also whitelisting servers intended for authentication, NAT, party chat and other necessities. If they aren't whitelisted by us, you could be accidentally blocking them with the Geo-Filter! (That's why we're working on ways to automate this process and eliminate that risk).

    I would love this feature. It's not just about the router. Some WIFI Devices enjoy a freshly established connection :). (always on devices, thermostats cameras etc)

    There's a cloud update on its way, likely next week - hopefully that resolves some of the problems you're having. We're investigating but alas, problems with CoD net code are as old as the franchise. We'll keep investigating and let y'all know when the cloud update is out!

    If you want our opinion, we reckon that's placebo having extensively tested the effects of NAT. Having a moderate NAT will almost always limit your matchmaking options - and not in a good way. Still, feel free to experiment

    Hi XR500J, welcome to the forum
    So with Stadia, we're currently playing around with our own one in the office and trying to figure out what we can do for it. We'd already planned for its release and have a few key features which will help a lot - they're coming in DumaOS 3.0, which will be out soon.
    You're right in that it's not traditional in any way - Anti-Bufferbloat won't help here, nor will Traffic Prioritization. Since Stadia gobbles up bandwidth, the best you can do for it is give it all the bandwidth it needs with Bandwidth Allocation. We'll be interested to see if there's ways to change which Google server it's connecting to using the Geo-Filter, though only time and testing will tell!
    For now, give it a load of bandwidth and see how you get on - but keep your eyes open for DumaOS 3.0 (which will be coming to XR500 and other platforms).

    It doesn't necessarily matter if the R1 gets a new address occasionally, though it could mean you need to keep accessing the UI through different IP's. I'd just give it a static one

    Netduma Jack got a reaction from AzeRuS94 in Best settings for xr500   
    Hi AzeRu - let's sort out some settings for you. First off, with those speeds you shouldn't encounter congestion often if at all, so I'd recommend setting Anti-Bufferbloat to 100/100 to maximise throughput.
    Each of those games will use somewhat different Geo-Filter settings. CoD MW is the easiest in this case; whenever you play MW, have a Geo-Filter radius of around 1000 - 1500km around your home. I'd set Ping Assist to 30ms as well, though if you live in the middle of nowhere or in a badly supported country, you should use 60ms Ping Assist.
    In Fifa, Apex and Fortnite it's less simple. If you play Seasons in Fifa, it's standard matchmaking, so your CoD MW settings will work fine. If you play FUT though, you should look for the closest EA servers while you're playing and set your Geo-Filter radius around that area with Strict Mode on. Same goes for Apex and Fortnite - your objective in those games is to stop the game from connecting you to servers that are really far away, but there's way less to choose from compared to CoD. (Since they're using Dedicated Servers only, rather than P2P).
    I hope this makes sense, give it a shot!

    Netduma Jack got a reaction from TODDzillaInLA in Xbox One X & Party Chat   
    We would go and investigate this usually, but being Christmas it's not the best time. Feel free to just hold off for now until we release DumaOS v.3.0.
    I've no idea why Xbox released an upgrade that's broken party chat for a bunch of people. If it ain't broke why fix it? Anywho, thank you for raising this issue - we'll investigate when we can!

    Notification for those also reading this topic:
    DCHP reduced my R1 CPU load from PPPoE @ 70-90% on bandwidth load to DHCP @ 30-50% on bandwidth load
    Connection is currently 50 down 10 up so not even that fast. Overall a huge difference, when i switch to 100 down 40 up in the next month or two im quite confident that the R1 will deliver those speeds without any problems :).

    Netduma Jack reacted to Bert in Traffic Prioritization Settings: Modern Warefare (BO4)   
    What I don't like about a VPN solution is that you are connecting through their servers so they potentially give you more connection issues.
     
    Adding latency on your own system ensures you keep the same route to the nearest server so minimal interference from the internet. Plus you can adjust it to what you want. 30ms isn't really all that much, I was up to 100-120ms in most cases. But that is in Asia, latency in the lobby here is higher across the board.

    I'm not certain what's happened here - what version are you on? Factory reset will likely fix this, it's probably just something that's got the router in a bad state.

    Netduma Jack got a reaction from Netduma Fraser in Geofilter for two devices?   
    This is actually something we want to happen - there are a ton of new features on the way and I know one of them (I can't announce) will give you more Geo-Filter control. I'd like to see separate filters for each device become a thing in the near future, it's great to know you'd find this useful!
    When you set the Geo-Filter radius / home location currently, it'll work for all devices you've added to the Geo-Filter. So if you want your son's PC to get a high ping with you, he will if the PC is added to the Geo-Filter. (For PC's, currently it's advisable to change its device type to a console in the Device Manager, then re-add it to the Geo-Filter to get it working properly).

    Some folks swear by this technique, I think they usually say around 40ms is the sweet spot for CoD. I guess the logic there is that it's a mid-point between the lowest and highest ping players in the lobby.
    I myself don't really subscribe to that idea, but give it a try!

    Netduma Jack got a reaction from purpleandgold33 in Question about Port Forwarding 1-65535 on R1   
    I don't think it affects your devices per-se, but rather it opens you up to security risks. Now in my opinion those security risks are hardly worth worrying about, since local network hacks are extremely rare and almost always targeted. I'd do some research before you go ahead and do it though - I'm by no means the authority on network security.
    It shouldn't create any performance issues if you open those ports, if you have UPnP disabled.
