  1. I have been using hide my ass vpn well for 3 years. No settings have been modified. It hasn't been working since a few months. I need help.
  2. Hello Guys I have had a lot of trouble setting up my PS5 on the DumaOS software, I get this message photo attached. I have checked the default gateway, subnet mask and the IPv4 address. my PC's are working fully and phones its literally just the PS5. it's very confusing to me.
  3. i would like to request a Automated Scheduled Reboot Feature added to the firmware capabilities for the Netgear XR500 Router. this feature is present on every other commercial router. Reason: the Router Performance sometimes Degrades over time or will not put through internet data. After Reboot the performance is top again or the internet data will be put through again.
  4. I was reading another members post and read the recommendation to try different dns servers namely cloudflare primary and secondary servers throughout the years even before Netduma existed for me I have always wondered if outside the router level of configuration, at the console level in the network settings do I HAVE to also input those same services within the console software???? Will there be an issue of doing them both? Is it ok?
  5. So I am having intermittent connection drops to my device whenever I use hybrid VPN. Anywhere from 5-10min, the PS5 will drop it's lan connection, reconnect, and won't happen again until the PS5 is restarted. I've tried rebooting and factory resets, but these disconnects continue to happen. Sometimes the disconnect will keep happening until I power-cycle both the xr500 and PS5. Any suggestions? Is this a known issue on the XR500? Thanks!
  6. Forgive me if I’m late on this but is just a netgear side of update on firmware or was there anything on the DumaOS side of software that was ironed out???? as always still here holding it down waiting for a major update on firmware for the overall system.
  7. I live in Texas but for whatever reason it’s showing me best servers are European??? Is it actually locked on my side of the pond and it’s still ok to choose them or do I skip them and save only the ones over in the states????
  8. Hi peeps, I’ve finally got my hands on a PS5 and (maybe) a significant observation I’ve made, as far as lag-busting DumaOS is concerned, is that full WAN throughput is granted to game downloads and updates, regardless of games currently being played. Let me explain… I have a solid VDSL2 connection of 60Mbps down 15Mbps up and a base ping of around 9ms. It’s not the fastest connection in the world by any stretch of the imagination, but it’s been constant and rock solid for over 20 years. Previously on the PS4, I could download a game (or an update to a game) at full 60Mbps throughput. However, when I launched a game, that download speed would quite aggressively be capped at maybe 10Mbps. I assume this was PS4’s own QoS working (or possibly a hardware limitation), but frankly pings during gaming sessions while background downloads were in progress, were great on PS4. Currently on the PS5, background downloads do not seem to have this throttling. My full 60Mbps throughput continues uncapped while playing games, and pings can often shoot up to around 80-120ms because of buffer bloat. If you have a super-duper high speed connection then that’s great, because any degradation to pings will be short lived, but for people on slower connections when games might take many hours to download, this might be an issue. Not sure how DumaOS could manage this with both gaming traffic and downloads going through the same LAN IP but though I’d mention it anyway. ----- [Edit]: Good luck England!
  9. Hi dear NetDuma team, All these tests were done against an XR500 running last official version of NetDuma software (V2.3.2.56). Here I come again... I have tested hybrid VPN in the following configuration: - Direct Wifi connection to my XR500 and here, everything works - Connection to a relay wifi on my extender and hybrid VPN does not work (I waited long enough to ensure the new IP for my PC was registered correctly in the device manager) - Ethernet connection to the extender and here same thing, Hybrid VPN does not work (same as above). The only difference is, when going through the extender the mac addresses are re-written as the extender acts as a proxy. The extender is the Netgear Nighthawk EX7700 and there is no choice on proxy or not proxy when it comes to configuration. I have already experienced the same behaviour with geofiltering. Now maybe you can try to convince NetGear to change their software on the EX7700 so that it allows the MAC addresses not to be rewritten. I am not expecting any fix on the current software, but I do hope that netduma 3.0 has been tested with re-written mac addresses, once again happy to test 3.0, I have already registered myself with Netgear but so far nothing. So it looks like that for some reasons, as soon as any of my devices goes through an extender (netgear, tp-link,...) none of the useful features are working. I was almost about to get an R2 just to make sure to get my hands on V3 but if this type of configuration hasn't been tested then there is no reasons for me to get 3.0 at all and I am fairly confident that I am not the only one using a Netduma based router with an extender to relay the wifi (as not everyone has their houses/flat fully wired in cat 6 and/or the wifi signal strong enough to go everywhere). Best regards, FX.
  10. Hi all, I've had this weird issue for quite a while now, and tried multiple things to fix it, but essentially, not a single wifi client can access any of my wired clients web interfaces, or if they can, it's exceedingly slow, I'm talking 10 minutes to load Sonarr's login page. Other wired LAN devices connect fine and instantly Things I've tried - Rebooting all devices - Hosting on another device (I've home assistant installed on a raspberry pi, previously had the Servarr suite installed on a Netgear Readynas, now have it installed on an Intel Nuc11 running on Docker containers. - Multiple wifi devices including iPhone, Samsung Galaxy, iPad, Computer and Laptop, all of them experience the same issue. - Updating firmware on the XR500 - Pinging any of my wired clients or hosts from my wireless clients, all of them ping fine with average 7-10ms ping. - Disabling QOS - DMZ I'm out of ideas on what else I can try. Other info that may help, doubtful, but worth having. - My ISP requires a VLAN tag of 2 - Port 80 is not blocked by my ISP - No other issues with ports being blocked outside of wireless devices - I do have Smart Connect on, and I haven't tried with it off to avoid having to manually reconnect 20+ devices. - I have an unmanaged switch connected to the router, though I've tried to host from a device both on the unmanaged switch and one directly connected to the router. List of services I cannot access from wifi devices. - Heimdall - Sonarr - Radarr - Jackett - Ombi (I can access from dns hostname) - Tautilli - Netdata - Plex (I can access through plex app) Any help or direction on what I can try next would be much appreciated.
  11. I'm playing from a console, and I'm having trouble finding games on warzone but seems to find games without problems on rebirth with the same settings. Also I'm using geo-filter with hybrid VPN. Hopefully I will be able to solve the issue.
  12. So, I own a XR1000 and due to the lack of hybrid VPN I decided to purchase a XR500. Now what I would like to do is to connect the two routers together. I've managed to connect the xr500 to the xr1000 but I'm not able to activate the hybrid VPN is just stuck in connecting. Just so you know in advance I'm trying to leave the rest of the house connected to the xr1000 so that they aren't affected by the VPN. Hope that someone will be able to help. Thanks in advance.
  13. Does anyone experiences slow upload speed on playstation 5 ? My ISP internet speed is 500/500, and the results of the speed test on my console is always estimated around 450/23 MB. Is there any fix to that? On my laptop, wired, I get 500/500MB though... 🤨
  14. I was interested in using the Hybrid VPN to segregate some traffic on my network but I've ran into a few issues. Router: XR 500 v2.3.2.130 VPN: HMA After signing up for HMA, I tried to connect but it looks like they may have change their encryption method or something Error connecting over TCP: WARNING: --ns-cert-type is DEPRECATED. Use --remote-cert-tls instead. It looks like this should be an easy enough fix to change the flag in the OpenVPN config, but I'm no expert. UDP connects, but all traffic goes through the VPN (seems like all or nothing), not using the IP ranges I entered for services (easy test was setting ports 80 and 443 and asking google what my IP was). I saw another post where it suggested using TCP but again that never connects. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
  15. I'm having trouble resetting up my router last time I used it was almost 2 years ago when I first bought it but had difficulties setting it up. So it has just been sitting collecting dust next to my modem after I had customer support over the phone set me up. Now I cant even get back in dumaos 3.0 I've tried to factory reset to get back into it but it just comes up with error every time I get to the end. When I type in routerlogin.net it just redirects me to https://www.netgear.com/home/services/routerlogincom/ Any guidance would be much appreciated.
  16. So I want to change my DNS on my router. The thing is on the XR500 there is a primary, secondary and third DNS. I wanted to use the google DNS of and so what do i do about the third option? Do I leave it blank or does google have a third DNS? Sorry if this is a stupid question I'm not that great for networking lol. Thanks guys.
  17. So, apologies if this topic has already been discussed, but if it has please feel free to drop a link to that thread. I attempted to trying and search of it myself. Here's the situation: My ISP institutes and bandwidth cap and as a tech-heavy and large family we're constantly tapping that monthly bandwidth cap. I'm looking for a way to use the features of my XR500 to log the amount of bandwidth particular devices are using. As robust as the features are options are, I'm assuming this is possible? But maybe it's not and there's some other way of doing this? Essentially I'm looking to see which devices/users are the heaviest data consumers on my network.
  18. Ok so overall my internet is not as stable as I would like. Cox knows that their internet is not the best for gaming so they set up their VPN called Elite Gamer. Normally where my ping would be in the high 80s, it can cut it down to around 17 if it choose the correct servers. So it fixes my issue mostly. I would still like to take advantage of Nighthawk XR500's geofilter but anytime I try to use XR500 and Elitegamer together I get a lot of lagspikes. My normal setup goes: COX modem > XR500 > Gaming PC all hardwired ethernet. For testing purposes I connected an ethernet from my Cox modem directly to my gaming pc and when I play games with EG VPN on there are little to no lag spikes. What are some troubleshooting steps I can try to see if I can get the Cox modem and EG VPN to work smoothly with XR500??
  19. Hi! I can't find the official DumaOS 3.0 for XR500. According to a twitter from Nighthawk Pro Gaming, they wrote that we are able to download the update. By the way, is it excatly the same as the beta version .120 or is it an new updated version?
  20. I have the XR500, the latest firmware having DumaOS 3.0 ( I have my Up/down speeds at 80% (9.6/95). Although, when downloading anything on my PC the speeds are downloading at full bandwidth, which dramatically reducing the ability of other devices, including my PC , to utilize the internet. I am not sure why my PC is exempt from the QoS as every other device is being affected properly. My consoles download games at set speeds too. Any ideas from the community as to why this is happening and is there a solution? Thanks for any help!
  21. I set all necessary ports for traffic prioritization, restarted my router and it’s still showing 0 download and upload packets.
  22. So my original bandwidth tests at setup wizard detects DL and UL speeds in the mid 900’s. I have google fiber 1gig bandwidth with my service set to use my own router. The XR500 connects directly into fiber jack where it converts fiber into ethernet connection. I have done several factory resets internally through dashboard as well as paper clip the reset button on the back of router. I even have done a full 30/30/30 reset on the XR500 and things seem to be odd as if the router still retains some settings and doesn’t completely factory reset. what I don’t understand is the QOS is set to always or auto detect with DL and UL at 90% and then in congestion control speed fails with a D and won’t get an A or A+ until I lower my DL and UL to recommended levels? To top things off I get a pop up saying device not found? Also tests are done with my whole household online for real world simulation of traffic 🤓
  23. I think its time across both forums respectfully the partnership between both sides gets put up for all to read and get a better understanding of all the workings and politics that tend to keep things tied up in the fodder. I see all manner of intellect that has come through the doors on both sides. Regardless of degrees and novice experience individual perspectives are to be respected and met on common ground. What seems simple and straight forward for some without knowing the politics within the partnership or "marriage" between both companies is in for what appears to be nothing but wall after wall of headaches and feeling on the consumer side of not being cared for as a top priority. Both sides do address issues but in different order or if hand in hand Netgear has always taken forever to push updates out. Anyone with history from the last 15 years should know this as common place. Personally even though I know this I still bite and purchased the XR500. I have my own list of hiccups that need to be ironed out. I have my game console and my three sons are well into the teenage years of their lives and thats a total of four consoles as well as everything wired and wireless on my local network. I have also seen consumers with 20 plus connections and a knowledge base on networking that is well above everyones pay grade here. It all boils down to understanding where everyone is coming from to get clarity on why things are the way they are. Personally I blame NETGEAR for the pace things are going. BUT if I look at the R1 or R2 routers I would have to imagine they are not partnered to an outside company and all the bells and whistles that are in the woodwork should be well ahead of these available for Netgear hardware, unless there is something in the Netgear "contract" that is stepping on the toes of lets say DumaOS 4.0 for example. I have come and gone back to my ISP provided hardware several times over the YEARS and even with this last firmware round as of this posting believe it or not I'm tempted on getting an R2 just to see if my few personal issues get ironed out. At this point anyone reading this would say I am crazy and I should not continue to support both sides but I have faith things will shape up better moving forward into the future. Netgear is juggling many devices and it took a bite into the gaming world and probably didn't expect so much backlash from consumers on hardware with there badge on it but with the SOUL of gamers within the SOFTWARE. Please feel free to go on over to NETGEAR and see how things are going on over there. https://community.netgear.com/t5/Nighthawk-Pro-Gaming-Routers/bd-p/en-home-nighthawk-pro-gaming-routers As you can see the NetDuma Team also tries their best to help out over on that board as well. Take care everyone on both sides of the pond. GG
  24. There is a problem with my router, or the firmware itself, is that the DumaOS says that it is connected to internet but my devices won't get internet connection. This is third time now happened since I updated the firmware to .130. I had to restart the router to make it able to recognize the internet connection. I had called my ISP while this happened and they said that there was nothing wrong with the interet connection from their end. And as soon as I restarted the router, my devices got internet connection, while I was talking to my ISP in my phone. Why is this happening?
