  1. Hi Guys, I've got Virgin media Gig1 (1000/50 min speed) service. While my PC is directly connected to the Virginmedia Hub 4, I get the roughly +900Down and +50Up. (Ref: samKnows_test_01.png) Also, My PC and Xbox are all hard wired to the R2 (Firmware Version: R2 3.2.453). However, when I do the speed test using Netduma R2 Connection Benchmark tool (with No Congestion Control), its never stable and always fluctuate between ~300 - 500Down and ~45 - 50Up. Therotically, I should be getting almost same speed as I get while directly connected to Hub 4 (i.e. about +900Down and +50Up.) without the Congestion Control ON. However, the results are always inconsistance and never get the expected speed with the R2 Connection Benchmark speed test tool. (Ref: duma_test_01.png, duma_test_02.png) Issue with such inconsistance speed with R2, is not allowing me to identify what speed should I set to the R2 so that I can set appropriate % of Congestion Control. However, I tried to set 790Down and 50Up with 90% flood control. Results, poor and inconsistance results (i.e., B or D) for both Speed and Ping Under Load with Congestion Control ON. (Ref: duma_test_cong_control_01.png, duma_test_cong_control_02.png) I suspect, this is the reason why I keep getting Packet Burst, High-Latency etc during COD gameplay. I have tried to Reboot R2 as well as Hub 4 several times before conducting Speed Test, with no improvements further. I would like to know if anyone else is having such issue. Also a query to the Admins, if this is a known issue or not? What shall I do?

  2. I have 600mbps Download when i run the test direct through my modem. With QoS off, the download speed when running my test (hardwired to lan 1 on the R2) is under 100 mbps. is there anything i can do to have my download speed NOT limited?
  3. I’ve been using the nighthawk router in bridged mode connected to my Comcast modem. It was working well for a while but in the past couple months the quality has been deteriorating and it’s been causing connection issues along with much much slower speeds. Ive tried disabling QoS, opening ports, scanning channels being used and assigning open ones, I’ve had to do countless reboots and factory resets. I don’t know what else to do and I hope you guys have something I can try that will solve this because I don’t know what can solve.
  4. Bought Netduma R2 after excellent reviews. I am on Virgin Media, 350 download, 35 upload speeds. To be honest, I am disappointed with the reliability of your OS and apps. QOS seems to continually switch itself off, so as a game enhancing router - it has zero functionality. Another issue - when I want to check QOS or any of the settings, via my desktop connecting to I often get this message: The operation is taking longer than expected. Please briefly wait before using this Rapp. I cannot do anything with any of the settings - QOS is not working, only option I have is to reboot the router. Yes, after reboot, it works, I can enable QOS - but 12 hours later - the same issue appears. I am on the latest firmware, have good and reliable broadband connection - but to be honest, 90% of the OS features don't work or hang. Can I get a refund or replacement - I am simply tired of reboots, router stability and QOS not working? I have no idea what other Rapps are simply NOT working, if QOS simply switches itself off daily.
  5. I have searched extensively for a solution on this, and none of the existing solutions resolve my issues. I am running a NightHawk XR300 on Verizon Fios. My current speeds coming out of the NightHawk fluctuate between 30 and 75mbps. I am paying for 400mbps. I have the CAT cable connected directly to the WAN port on the XR300. I borrowed a friends Verizon proprietary router and got speeds near 300mbps. I can connect devices directly to the CAT cable and achieve speeds near 400mpbs - when I ran a CAT 5e from the borrowed Verizon router to the XR300, then connected via Wi-Fi to the XR300, I still got 30-75mbps while the Wi-Fi from the Verizon router was pushing near 300. I am running the most up to date firmware, I have tired disabling QoS, enabling and disabling IPV6, I have tried manually setting the DNS and MAC . . . I have replicated the steps suggested in all of the forum threads that have been resolved to no avail. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
  6. When I connect directly to my modem my speeds and ping are normal, but when connected through the netduma r2 the speeds are slow, and the ping is high. I've obviously tried some of the basic solutions, and none of them are working. I have had the router for weeks with no problems up till yesterday, and I changed no settings to make it act up. Anybody know what I can do to fix this?
  7. Buenos días, Estoy encantado con el XR500, pero tengo un extraño problema que no consigo resolver, aquí os lo expongo: Cuando intento acceder, desde mis dispositivos por WIFI a mi NAS dentro de mi red local, el acceso es muy lento y me suele dar error por timeout. Contexto: -Ayer instale la ultima beta, 120, restauré a fabrica e importe los ajustes previamente guardados. Antes me pasaba igual -Tengo una conexión de fibra 600/600 que funciona bien -Tengo un pequeño NAS con varios servicios funcionando en docker. -El resto funciona perfectamente, es decir navego al exterior via wifi o por cable sin problemas. -Probado con un iMac, MacbookPro, SmartTv, iPad, iPhone, etc. -la conexión al NAS por cable desde el iMac es buena. Por wifi mal. -desde la smartTV, el mismo problema, por cable bien, por wifi mal -la conexión al NAS por wifi desde el AP, no desde el XR500, es buena también. Este AP esta conectado al XR500 por cable cat7 -Tengo, también, el mismo problema que otros usuarios, el router dice que esta en DE y yo estoy en ES. Conflicto. ¿que es lo que esta pasando? ¿Solución? Saludos y gracias, Jose
  8. Hello, two days ago I updated my xr500 from 2.66 to .108 as I want to use the polygon mode, but now every device that is connected through wifi like the phones in my house have a very slow connection to almost nothing. If I try to watch a video on youtube the video keeps buffering and does not load, meanwhile on my gaming pc through ethernet everything is fine. I have 1000/1000mb, I tried to factory reset from the interface and physicaly from the router but nothing. When I was on 2.66 everything worked perfect but I really want to use the polygon mode and thats why I don't want to downgrade. What can I do?
  9. My wifi speeds are terrible. I have the 2.4 and 5 networks enabled, channels and bandwidth set to automatic for both networks. iWifi app showing strong signal strength (<10ms ping) for both networks, but my download speeds are abysmal (24 mbps for the 2.4 network, 8 mbps for the 5 network). I get 250 download speed from my isp. R2 router is connected to a Motorola MB8600 modem. I turned off QoS, that didn’t help. I don’t have a reliable computer to use and my iPhone does not allow the use of a wifi analyzer so please don’t ask me to download one. My initial lousy/overpriced router/modem provided by my isp provided far superior wifi capability than the R2. I hope there’s a simple solution to my issues, because for all of it’s software potential, the hardware appears to be junk. Please help.
  10. I have the XR500 and it's on the latest 2.x.x.x firmware and at times, it gets so sluggish both with wifi and wired. It got so bad at one time that I had to reset it to factory defaults. Problem: I use my computer for work and have several meetings consisting of audio/video and this device has hesitation at random times both using wired and wireless connection. All of the iPhones and sometimes the Apple TVs experience a delay in response when loading an app or streaming app. Occasionally the gaming PCs have the same issue.When this happens, I check my ISP speed and 99% of the time, it checks out as correct. Just overall, it's random and the XR500 is just overall sluggish. At times, DHCP doesn't even work until I reboot. Games played: PS4s are all pretty much exclusively Red Dead redemption 2 Online. Gaming PCs are a mix of League of Legends, Fortnite, Roblox, Minecraft, Halo, Valorant, and several other online shooters from Steam and EPIC. Here is my scenario and my config below: ISP: AT&T Fiber gigabit internet Modem: Arris BGW210-700 (Internal WiFi is entirely disabled and DHCP as well) Switches: *****Ground Floor is Nighthawk S8000 *****Upstairs is a Netgear GS108-400NAS 8 Port 10/100/1000 dummy switch ****Basement is another Netgear GS108-400NAS 8 Port (The Netgear GS108 switches are there because I was not happy with multiple S8000's on my network) Environment is explained below but it goes as follows: modem->XR500->ground floor S8000 and also to basement Netgear GS108 Modem (only used to authenticate to AT&T and is bridged to my XR500 but my wife's computer is not affected by reconfig/reboot of XR500 because it is directly connected to the modem with a static IP. All modem settings are disabled including DHCP) WAN Port: Uplink to AT&T Fiber connection Port 1: Uplink to XR500 Port 2: Wife's work computer Port 3: S8000 Switch Port 4: Open XR500: (Actively providing DHCP, QOS is not configured, GeoFilter is not configured and there is no DMZ and very few port forwards to the PS4 Pro) Port 1: Uplink from Modem and priority critical Port 2: Uplink to Ground Floor S8000 Port 3: PS4 Pro on ground floor WiFi Config: Guest network disabled. SSID is encrypted, Smart Connect enabled, WMM enabled, Beamforming enabled, EU-MIMO enabled Ground Floor S8000 setup: All default settings and is configured as such: Port 1: Basement Netgear GS108 and priority is critical Port 2: Open Port 3: Apple TV on Ground Floor and priority medium Port 4: DirecTV box and priority low Port 5: Ground floor TV and priority los Port 6: Philips Hue hub and priority low Port 7: Open Port 8: Upstairs GS108 Basement GS108 setup: Since it's a dummy switch, the ports are scattered with the following 7 wired devices connected: Mac Pro, PS4, PS3, Gaming PC1, Gaming PC2, Wii Plus, Smart TV (one port not used) Upstairs S8000: Port 1: Gaming PC 3 and priority medium Port 2: Nintendo Switch wired via its dock and priority medium Port 3: Open Port 4: Open Port 5: Open Port 6: My work PC and priority high Port 7: PS4 Pro and priority critical Port 8: Uplink from and priority critical WiFi Devices: There are a slew of devices such as 5 iPhones, 5 iPads, Apple TV Upstairs, Roku Stick, 4 wireless security cameras, 4 laptops, Ring Doorbell Hopefully I've provided enough information on the situation but if not, please feel free to ask for more. I also downloaded the beta of DumaOS 3 wondering if it may help.
  11. Hi all, Ever since I got my XR500, I very regularly run into this issue—like at least once a week—and the only way to fix it is to reboot 5-6 times. I'm looking for advice since I feel that what I thought I was buying was a router that should operate smooth as butter, but instead mostly feels like I'm interacting with it over a 56k modem. To be clear, most of the time the devices on the network fly and I get around 940mbps down, and 40 mbps up (on a 1 gig plan via Comcast) even when the UI is being slow and unusable. It's just the Netduma router that's slow... It typically starts with a DHCP event around midnight where I think the router tries to get a new lease from my modem (owned by me, but on Comcast—modem is a Motorola Model MB8600 if it matters) that I think fails somehow, so all internet goes off. The only way to fix it is to reboot the modem, and then reboot the router. Once I do this—and in this order—things come back up, but around 90% of the time the Netduma UI is unresponsive requiring me to reboot it several times for the one time that things come back up normal. It looks like the attached images when it comes back up... first it just looks like it's loading everything forever and never actually loading... then it will usually show the message saying that it's taking a while to load the app, but sometimes it just shows a generic error like the last screenshot. Any ideas? I am almost at the point of trashing this $500 router... I can't use any of the features unless I do this multi-reboot thing (each reboot takes things down for like 2-3 mins), and when it is working, I find it actually hinders things, like the buffer bloat causes more lag in games, etc. I look forward to your advice...
  12. So got the router and a new modem (xr500 with netgear 3.1 docsis) set up was fine pc is connected via lan cat 7 cable. However my smart tv, laptop and phone are experiencing abnormal amount of lag vs my crappy old lynksys ea6350 before I could press an app and it and all content is loaded, now say I open speed test it will take up to 2 min to detect I have Cox internet and another 16 seconds average to find a server. Opening youtube will do the same app opens but it hangs on a blank page for an excessive amount of time before showing me content. I have ipv6 set up ip address is dynamic given by Isp, I have used ips dns and used dns benchmark to find the best dns servers (google, time Warner then 1.1.1.) I have two filter set up only for my pc and antibuffer scores a consistent A+ ping to Google is 25 ms I'm using 90% of 550 mbps data and I have tried giving Wi-Fi devices 50% or the auto 20% speeds yet speed test always says a device reaches 400 mbps (via wifi) I just don't know what I can do about it. Any suggestions anyone else have this problem. My phone now runs faster and more reliable with one bar of LTE....
  13. I pay for 300/20 and get that speed when I connect directly to my modem. When I connect directly through the NetDuma, I only get 100/10. I have reviewed various other threads and have followed the instructions given to other people including: Reactive Algorithm 100% anti-flood Share excess enabled Reset device prioritisation & apply Disable IPv6 in WAN, LAN & misc Disable deep packet in misc Enable turbo mode Ensure the ethernet cables you're using connecting the R1 to hub & R1 to PC are Cat5e+/can handle your speeds. Do a wired speed test from a PC I've also followed and read the article "Why is my Connection Speed Lower" and it still doesn't solve the problem. I'm on version 1.03.6g. Any ideas?
  14. I tried to log into the router and noticed it was slow to open the page. I noticed that one CPU usage was pegged at 100%. Not both CPU's, they would alternate to 100% but both still very high. Normally the CPU's utilisation is low. I then checked the logs and it showed a lot of DHCP events happening quite fast. This is not normal. I checked the device MAC addresses and they happen with computers, iPhones, iPads etc, so I don't think it's the clients. Please see attached pictures. When the router gets into this state, I have to reboot it.
  15. Hi everyone, after a lots of researchs and thoughts, i've found a solution to "delete" the slow GUI problem (slow interface when rules in port forwarding are active). I said "delete" because it's not permanent but you have to complete 2 simple things to avoid that issue. TESTS For the moment, i will explain how i found my solution (the console need to be lauchned after you've activated specific options for each test): 1) Host filtering ON / Port forwarding ON / Hyper-lane OFF = no issue 2) Host filtering OFF / Port forwarding ON / Hyper-lane ON = no issue 3) Host filtering ON / Port forwarding OFF / Hyper-lane ON = no issue 4) Host filtering ON / Port forwarding ON / Hyper-lane ON = slow interface 5) Host filtering ON / UPNP OFF / Hyper-lane ON = no issue 6) Host filtering ON / UPNP ON / Hyper-lane ON = no issue After those tests, we can deduce that there is an issue between host filtering and the port forwarding while hyper-lane is active. ------------------------------------------------------------------ SOLUTION This is the best solution i found for the moment (with Host filtering / Port forwarding / Hyper-lane active) : 1) Disable the host filtering 2) Launch your console 3) Let your console run to the main menu 4) Enable the host filtering 5) Enjoy After you've finished your gaming session, don't forget to disable the host filtering for the next time. ------------------------------------------------------------------ CONCLUSION As i can read in a lots of threads in the forum, there is still some bugs on the actual firmware but we can find solution ourselves and find the best way to use our router. If you have any questions about this, just let me now. It was Chive, peace out DUMA ARMY!
  16. My speeds are : Edit : When I attempt to upload a video, then go to the network monitor in my netduma.. This is where I am seeing my speed capping around 2mb/s. If I run a speedtest on speedtest/speedtestxfinity it shows my speeds just fine. Edit 2 : after restarting the modem/router from xfinity, my speeds are putting out what they should be. Will be buying a new modem because I have had nothing with problems with that piece of junk that I am renting from them. 100 mb/s down 25 mb/s up So I have in my congestion control -Reactive -Share excess Download speed cap - 100% Upload speed cap - 100% I AM hardwired My PC is NOT added in hyper traffic The only things ticked ON in my miscellaneous settings are : - Enable cookies - Turbo mode - I have tried ticking on super turbo mode, made 0 difference. I am renting a modem from comcast, It's the xfinity all in one, router/modem (set in bridge mode). Even while in congestion control giving my computer 100% of the upload usage still gives me 2.1 - 2.2mb/s. Resetting the distribution, making everything have an even amount of usage still results in 2.1 - 2.2mb/s. I feel like my settings just aren't saving even though they appear to be saved. I purchased my netduma a few days ago and it is on version 1.03.6h.
  17. I'm having to reboot my Netduma quite frequently as WIFI seems to hang/crash/freeze. I'm not gaming via wifi just normal internet 'surfing'. I will get the "not connected to the internet" error when loading up a page. Sometimes I can load up the R1 interface, sometimes not. Either way I have to reboot the R1 for it to start working again. I'm not losing connection to the R1; it just becomes unresponsive. Anyone else having/had this issue?
