  1. Hello. New to the forum but I've been using the Netduma R1 router for about 8 months now. I tried searching for an answer but came up empty. I need Geofiltering for 6 devices, so I bought a 2nd Netduma R1. uPnP doesn't work on the 2nd one I bought, I checked, both are the same firmware versions, I have unchecked uPnP and save, reset, rechecked uPnP On and save, reset, still doesn't work, but when I put the DMZ into my modem everything on the new router comes up open but now makes the first router I've been using for 8 months moderate/ strict. (Before this the DMZ was not set so I didn't swap DMZ's, nats on all devices were always open) I never use Strict Mode enabled, and I have the xbox server near me on an allowed connection, but I have the circle set to basically just New England area when its filtered. but even when there's no filters it's hard to get open nat when I'm using both routers. I just need a way to have 6+ devices to be able to be geofiltered, and all have open nat. is there a new update or a higher end router (xr500 or xr700) I can get that does more than 4 devices at once or is there a way I can use the 2 I have to make it work? I read that the higher end ones Have a DMZ setting that the R1's don't have so maybe I would just need to get one and have an R1 piggyback off of that and put the R1's WAN into that routers DMZ, then put the new XR500/XR700 WAN into the Modems DMZ? Thanks for any future help on this.
  2. I just upgraded from the R1 to the XR300. For the last 4 months or so I've had no problems changing the geofilter settings on my R1 between games of BO4 on XBox (no restart of BO4 necessary). It was working like a charm. The XR300 doesn't seem to be as robust. Sometimes even when I don't change settings after starting BO4, I get servers/peer hosts outside my radius. I'm running firmware on the XR300. with Filtering on, strict mode, ping assist = 0, no Fast search (same settings I used on the R1 with DumaOS). Do the geofilters operate differently between the R1 and XR300? Any known reason why the geofilter on the XR300 isn't changeable post start or why it isn't as effective as the R1? Thanks
  3. I have an XR450 (basically an XR500 with slightly worse wifi?). When I set ping assist it does not seem to actually be checking the pings after a while. Sometimes rebooting the router fixes it for a short time. My assist is set to 45ms, strict enabled. I have tried with fast search on and off. To no avail, it lets people in with massive pings for some reason. Radius works fine as far as I can tell, but that does not stop some people with bad pings as I don't want to block out the entire US. But to get most of the USA into my radius I have to allow a lot of Canada and mexico. I can play with some people in cali and have a ping of 50-70 area and often this is fine for many games. I would be pretty surprised for someone to really tell me this person pinged under 45ms to start with and then rose to over 100ms. So either the filter does not work or there is something else I am not doing. I have downgraded my FW to initial release and back to the latest twice now with no avail. General settings I have done in my XR450: Prioritized all packets both UDP and TCP (individually not together) for my PC Filter mode, strict mode, PC enabled in geofilter as a "console". Fast search off (tried on too) QOS tested and optimized for low buffer bloat (DSL report's gives me an A rating) with max bandwidth allocation (100 distribution) to my PC, not sure if this has an affect on other devices. I know some of the same admins on the netgear website also post here. I'm looking for others with similar issues, and it seems like this forum is a bit more active. I have attached a picture of my geofilter and autoping showing the issue I am having here. You can see his ping started around 60ms, which is well above 45 still, and thus the feature is bugged for sure.
  4. As my Asus QoS is far more superior than Netduma's it has better algorithms and better consistency in Black Ops 4, I would like to use Qos function provided by Asus RT-AC88u. But I also want to keep such unique Geo-Filter feature from Netduma with Anti-Bufferbloat turned off. Is there anyway to do this ? does dmz method help? Thank you
  5. Weird behavior of the Geo-Filter in South America. Hi, I’m from Buenos Aires Argentina, had been playing Apex since Launch. The game has improved very little too, and the game's connection is very irregular. I will try to explain here with screenshots in these easy 5 steps what is happening in every game I had. 1. In the title screen… the Geo-Filter show this. I can see all the servers’ location, including my nearest server in Sao Paulo. 2. Then, when I connect and enter the lobby if I have the Geo-Filter in Spectating mode, the Sao Paulo server is gone and I´m connected to a server in the US or Europe, always. And even, if I turn the Geo-Filter and select Strict mode, it will connect me to those regions. 3. Now with the Apex Legends Lag Fix Guide, I turn the Geo-filter and try to DENY some servers in the US and Europe, so in this situation, I can´t connect to the Lobby at all. 4. So, to play I need to turn off the Geo-Filter. So in the lobby, the Geo-Filter show me that I´m connected to the US, in this case, Texas with 165 ms Ping, 5. but when I enter the map or the Legends selection, the connection change to a 37 ms Ping and I´m connected to a Brasilian Host, which is not a Server but a Peer… That´s all. And for me, it´s weird. I hope this information can help me and others in the same situation. Regardless of this inconvenient I still have fun and very nice games, but if I can improve my hit detection and the lag it will be the best. FYI, I have set up my QoS, and my buffer bloat is +A, so it´s not a problem. Thanks all for reading… I hope this help. See ya!! Alvaro
  6. Playing PS3 BO2, the device manager shows the PlayStation as OFFLINE. It's hardwired with an Ethernet CAT-6 cable to the XR500. Also in addition, the geo-filter shows absolutely NOTHING besides my home location when I go to search for a game. I've got the PlayStation added as a device but as far as I know it's not working. I paid $300, for the software and it's not working. I had the R1 and it worked fine, but crapped out so I went out and got the XR500. I've heard downgrading an update could help? If so, how do you do that? Can anyone help???? Much appreciated.
  7. Geofilter active, PA active, getting server outside criteria can this be a misidentified location? Thank you
  8. Hello When i have the geofilter set to filtering mode whilst playing fifa 19 i only ever connected to the german server (i live in the UK), however when i set the geofilter to spectator mode i start getting connected to the closer french server, any idea of the reason? Thanks
  9. Salut les gars, Es ce que quelqu'un arrive à regler son GEOFILTRE correctement sur CALL OF DUTY BO4? Moi de mon coté j'ai beau bannir des hotes, elles reviennent sans cesse. Bref ça commence à me saouler serieusement! Merci par avance.
  10. Hi. I just setup my XR500. I am located in the a southeastern US state, but my geofilter is centered on California. Is that expected behavior, and if not can it be fixed?
  11. As right now i can see games like: Uncharted 4 Destiny Destiny 2 Last of us Halo: master chief collection Halo 5 Titanfall 2 These games dont work well with the Geo-filter, they either kick you out of the match or wont even connect to a game, Uncharted 4 has major issues it creates lag.
  12. Hello, I just installed the Nighthawk XR500 router in my home. I have an ISP modem (sky sr102) and nothing except the xr500 is connected to it. All devices in house connect to xr500. My Xbox one X is connected via cable to xr500 and NAT is open as I set my xr500 as a DMZ server in my ISP router and XBOX has static IP. My group filter is not working and the screen shows no hosts on the map when I'm playing games like Destiny or GTA. XBOX device is listed as XBOX in devices. Geo filtering is set to spectate, profile is set to Destiny and yet I don't see any remote hosts or ping detials. The screen just remain blank. I am using Chrome browser also on a Mac so no issues with browser. I have the latest firmware as the router installed it automatically yesterday. Please can you help with the configuration of geo filtering and let me know why it isn't working?
  13. I have used the R1 for years and finally picked up the XR500 I have setup my ps4pro under device manager to playstation Added ps4 to geo filter as a console - Filtering mode (also tried spectating mode) profile was set to destiny I can't see any servers or triangles or anything on the geo filter map Meanwhile... I setup my pc and it works - I can see servers and triangles on the geo filter PC is set to console (saw this in another thread) geo filter is set to spectating EDIT** Just setup my Xbox1X and everything populates xbox in device manager set as console under geo filter in filtering mode Can see servers and triangles
  14. I am trying to change my home location and geofilter distance to get a better chance of getting in a seasons game of FIFA on Xbox One. Whenever I navigate away from and come back to the geofilter page, the home location and distance and ping settings go back to what they were before. I think this may be affecting my ability to find a game. Any way to fix this?
  15. Hi, I’m looking for a new router, and I’ve read about the Netgear XR500 and its GeoFilter feature. I’m just a bit confused, I’m not sure if I understand it perfectly. Does GeoFilter filter the available servers and hosts or does it filter the players? I mean I play TC’s R6S, and there’s no player hosting, just the server, and just one: WEU (Western Europe). It’s perfect for me, I don’t want to change it, but it’s unfair playing against players, who are also connected to this WEU server from far away, therefore with high pings, I mean really high. So GeoFilter can filter these players, and let me play against only players who are in a selected area, or GeoFilter can filter only the servers? The first would be great, but the second is unnecessary for me (right now). Thanks for your help!
  16. Hi all. So I just picked up the XR500 a few days ago and so far pretty happy. One thing I can't figure out is why the geofiltering affects my LAN speeds. I have 2 Xbox One consoles. I put both of them into the geofiltering. I went to transfer a game over the LAN from one console to another and noticed I couldn't really get past around 35Mb/s between them. I knew before with my old router I got around 90Mb/s between the two. I turned off the geofiltering and it instantly went back to "normal" getting around 100Mb/s for the transfer. Needless to say, I did not turn geofiltering back on. Why did turning geofiltering on affect this transfer between my two Xbox's and how do I fix it? Should it really affect internal transfers between two devices that are in geofiltering on my LAN? Help appreciated.
  17. I was playing call of duty and I noticed with World War 2 it wasn't showing any of the hosts or players connected. I haven't had this happen with any of the other call of duty. Is this happening to anyone else and how could i fix it?
  18. Hello! Had my eye on the DumaR1 and it's awesome looking Firmware for a while though just can't quite justify the $200 price. Though I have some questions to further spark interest, maybe you folks can help with some of these general questions. NOTE: Primary games Destiny 1 & 2 , then COD, then HALO5 || Consoles: PS4/XB1 How far can you zoom into map, possible to see the city that the host is in? can the geo filter see who is in my private match lobby in games like destiny? can you save any ping information to a server(say a bo3 server you had a great ping to) How accurate is geo filter Does the Duma and geo filter enabled add any additional latency to rtt? Because I have 2 routers. One adds no latency from the modems connection (open-wrt based router) and the netgear nighthawk 7000 adds 2-3ms of additional latency to the modems connection. can the geo filter always run in background and will it degrade performance if so? Does it work with games like uncharted 4? Can I save blacklist and whitelist profiles?say if I happen to reset to factory defaults or upgrade to a new os And how would I set it up with an existing router? I know to turn off dhcp on Duma and firewall, but what else could I do to ensure proficient use with it being behind another router I know the geo filter can usually find who is host in the game, but does it ever let you know when YOU yourself are host of a match? When you have teammates with you and want to search for a game in public matches, does ping assist work ? And how can I utilize geo filtering when my buddies are in my lobby
  19. Hello, I just recently purchased my Netduma R1 and received it on 5/16/17. I bought it mainly with Destiny in mind (wish I had known about the "destiny lag" discount but anyway.. I've got a few questions. 1.) When in the Geofilter tab, my circle shows my location being Charlotte, NC while i'm actually located just outside Myrtle Beach, SC. I've tested the location of two friends and their location is very accurate (zoomed in all the way, their circles are directly over their general area which is about 50-60 miles north of me). While I don't see this as a huge issue, it does slightly annoy my OCD tendencies when it comes to all things gaming. Is there maybe something I may have set wrong? 2.) Loaded "Destiny" profile and Trials went SOOOO much better Monday since It was not matching us with teams from Central/South America/Europe. It felt good to only lose to teams that were higher skilled or just simply outplayed us. But after the recent maintenance, I am getting pretty consistent "Beaver" errors even in regular Clash and Elimination. I increased the radius in Geofilter by a sizable margin (circle included ~75% of the US, a large portion of central america, and a good bit of Canada) and would still get beaver'd about every 3rd game while also dealing with +250 ping god players. 3.) My connection is only 30/5 with an average ping to local server of 10ms and the Netduma's internet diagnostics tool showed everything being either good or excellent. Monday before the destiny maintenance, I was getting host almost every match (at least my circle was the largest) and everyone in a 6v6 or 3v3 lobby had full green bars with a few exceptions of players in parties. After maintenance and having to increase the geo tolerance, my circle is usually the minimal size with lobbies full of yellow/red bars with mine even dropping to red occasionally. Is there anything I can do to increase my chances of being host? Other details that may help; My ISP offers a pretty rock solid internet service even though it's cable. X1 is hardwired to router. X1 network details shows 30/5 with a 67ms ping to their servers (was in the 90s before Netduma) Tested on COD BO3 and was chosen as host 9/10 with connections I thought previously impossible in COD. One last question and i'll quit.. Will this work for PLAYERUNKNOWN'S BATTLEGROUNDS for PC? I selected my PC as a service device and chose "xbox live" on the next step but haven't tried it out. I've quit playing it in the last 2 weeks due to the large amount of high ping EU and Asia players recently connecting to the NA servers making the previously minor lag/desync/rubberbanding a major problem for me. I just wasn't sure if you guys have looked into it yet. Thanks for all the help
  20. Hello everyone, I'm tired of seeing my 75ms+ ping on RB6 PC as I have a connection with 60 down and 6 up. My ping in speedtest is 24-30ms and I have optimized Netduma router settings. I disabled iPV6 and other things that decrease network speed especially multicast snooping. So it's not an issue on the settings side of things. I was able to have RB6 on PS4 always send me to a server in North Carolina which helped me stay at 60ms or below on PS4. However, I have noticed that I have no use for the Netduma since I've transfered to PC. I'm wondering if there's a way for my to get ping assist or host filtering to work on Rainbow Six Siege. I tried to enable the PC on the GeoFilter with the Xbox Live service as I have no clue how to use the advanced option. I enabled the CoD Ultimate Profile as it worked in many FPS games on PS4 for me, and I also tried to set the home location to my state and set the geofilter to a good location yet my ping remains the same if not worse. The geofilter is in fact in effect. I just don't think ping assist is doing its job as the CoD Ultimate profile didnt result in any good results. The geolocation is not doing good so I would like to enable the CoD Ultimate profile and set the ping assist so that it connects me to a server with that ping range, but it doesn't seem to work as I join lobbies with worse ping. Looking forward to your guy's tips and guidance!
