  1. So I just realized that my NAT Type shows as moderate and I asked some friends and theirs shows open, I feel like this may have given me issues on getting into servers sometimes. How am I able to change my NAT type to open?
  2. In this video I expose the huge problem Netduma has with server locations. They wont update it on a regular basis, making it so we can't find games consistently. Keep in mind we PAID A LOT OF MONEY for this "PREMIUM" routers. The servers are stacked on top of each other, taking out the whole point of geo fencing servers. This not only happens in Warzone it also happens in Fortnite and god knows which other games. WE NEED CONSTANT SUPPORT BECAUSE THE ROUTERS ARE SUPER EXPENSIVE AND THIS PROBLEM BEEN HERE SINCE FOREVEVER. When you check the IP adresses in the Geo Filter the location don't make sense, And the closest servers get blocked because of this problem. YOU NEED TO HAVE SOMEONE ON A PAYROLL THAT CAN BE ON TOP OF THIS ISSUE. And I forgot to mention in the video that the Sync Cloud option crashes the whole router. Imagine paying 800 bucks for a router that wont work unless you do a super deep research just to find out that someone at Netduma wont update netduma.mp4 server locations. Trying to find aliens is easier to do than making the router work as intended. I love you guys but things are getting outta hand
  3. Basically a VPN filters the location and maybe the connection. The results are another location with another IP and a slow connection right? So how it works this Hybrid VPN? What i'm interested to know if it filters the connection resulting more slow than normal and if yes, how can i improve it? Does the QoS useful in this case?
  4. The ping won't show up when I have set the ping assist https://imgur.com/a/HNEq8GR
  5. Hola buenas tardes, a ver si alguien me puede ayudar. Donde puedo descargar Dumaos 3.0 para el router Netgear XR500? Gracas
  6. I've been trying to use the Content Filtering/Block Sites feature, and just for testing purposes, I have used twitter.com to see how it works. However, once I apply the filter, I wait a few minutes and try going to twitter.com only to find that it still allows full access to the site. I have not set any trusted IP addresses to allow visiting the blocked site. Am I not using it properly or is it not working?
  7. I thing it would be a great idea if we could create profiles for different Geo-Fencing set up. For every game I play I have to re-draw Geo Fencing, so it would be great if we could switch profiles instead of do it manually for diffrent game.
  8. Hello, I've got an XR500 and have used it to try and get lower ping on COD/ Warzone for a few months. For some reason, I'm still getting 'rubber-banding' and the occasional packet loss, as well feeling like my hit detrection is off. I've run numerous connection benchmark tests on my LAN and Wi-Fi 70down and 20up and get A+ for everything bar under load where my upload ping goes way over 200ms. I've got my QOS currently at 70/70 and I've scoured these forums to find a solution and tried virtually every possible solution. Just for reference, my setup is from the ONT to EE router, which then is wired into the XR500 that I've connected to both via wi-fi and LAN with no major difference between them. I've used a few traffic prioritization rules, which I'll post below, as well as other screenshots too. Any help is appreciated. Cheers EDIT: The PS5 and my laptop are the only active connections to the XR500, my laptop when I'm playing only had the Duma os running.
  9. Hallo Leute 😎 ich bin seit heute Nutzer des XR500 und finde die Möglichkeiten sehr nice! Nur habe ich ein Problem... Ich nutze Internet von Kabel Vodafone und zwar die Gigabit Leitung mit einer Fritz Box 6591Cable. Mit der hab ich schwankend immer zwischen 800-1200 Mb/s über Lan direkt zum Router. Nun habe ich natürlich einfach den XR 500 angeschlossen... der hat sich in der Fritzbox automatisch als Exposed-Host eingerichtet und alles hat sofort funktioniert. -Bis auf, das nix mehr funktioniert weil mein Internet quasi wie in 10k Zeiten schnell ist 😅 Hier mal ein Vergleich: 1. Test PC Via Fritzbox->XR500->LAN.K.->PC 2. Test PC Via Fritzbox->XR500->LAN.K.->PC 3. Test Iphone 12 Pro Max via WLAN direkt zur Fritzbox 5Ghz Netzwerk Ich glaube man erkennt, was ich meine. Die Verbindung scheint Instabil. Ich hab mit dem Handy nie mehr als 700Mb/s per Wlan. Das is Stabil. Aber alles was vom XR 500 raus kommt ist instabil. Kann mir einer sagen, woran das liegen könnte? Ich kenn mich damit null aus. Die Auto Konfiguration war easy und erfolgreich, Internet sofort hergestellt... Ich kanns mir nicht erklären Ne Verbindung zu z.Bsp. den Cod Servern bekomm ich auch nicht. auch nicht mit Geofilter etc. kann nur den Browser benutzen... Hoffe, mir kann wer helfen. Hab mir den Beitrag hier durchgelesen aber das funzt ja bei mir... Freu mich auf eure Antworten!
  10. Hello, I am looking for assistance with configuring my XR500 router to get an Open NAT type for CoD Warzone as my NAT type is reporting as Moderate. Here is my current network path: PC > Switch (Netgear GS316 Unmanaged) > Router (XR500 (AC2600)) > Modem (Netgear CM1000). XR500 firmware is V2.3.2.56. If it matters, Cat6 cables connect each device. I have attached screen shots of my current port forwarding rules config for Warzone. And yes, my PC has a static IP address. Currently have QoS turned off as having it on didn't allow WiFi calling for my iPhone X (separately, has this been fixed? I heard that v3 beta might have a fix for this) My Geo-Filter config is completely default, I've never touched it. Nat Filtering in the WAN Settings is set to Secured. I tried setting this to Opened, but it didn't seem to help so I reverted it back to Secured. For reference, here is Activision's documentation for CoD port forwarding: Ports Used for Call of Duty Games (activision.com) I followed this post for port forwarding instrcutions: Ultimate NAT Guide and settings for XR500 - NETGEAR Communities Any and all help is greatly appreciated!
  11. I recently installed a Netgear Nighthawk XR500 as an upgrade from my original Netduma R1 router. Since I completed the switch, I have had trouble connecting to others in a chat party. The one that I have the most trouble with is someone that is actually located within my Geo-Filter range. I added them to the "Allowed" connections list in the Geo-Filter, but the issue still persists. They will connect to the chat party ,but neither of us can hear each other and we both see the other with a spinning wheel. After some 5-10 minutes it decides to miraculously connect us. I also Port Forwarded the following ports: 1935, 3478-3480 on TCP and 3074, 3075, 3076, 3077, 3078, 3079 on UDP. Just wondering why this might be happening and if there is any way to fix this.
  12. Geofliter quit worrying on my xr500. I cannot load into games by myself in destiny 2 anymore. Anyone have any idea why this is quit working?
  13. Hi team, I've been using the XR500 router for a few years now and I haven't had any major issues. I recently switched my VPN provider to Proton VPN, and I wanted to use the Hybrid VPN feature on the XR500 (V2.3.2.114). Although hybrid VPN works, I'm seeing a large decrease in internet connection speed. I also am unable to connect to certain streaming services, such as Amazon Prime Video. A similar issue occured with my old VPN provider, but I did not think the router was the cause at the time. Please find screenshots below. Internet Speed without VPN: Streaming works Speed as expected Internet Speed using Proton VPN Windows 10 app: Streaming works Speed as expected When using the Proton VPN Windows 10 application, the speed doesn't fluctuate as much and I am still able to access streaming services. Internet Speed using Hybrid VPN (Proton OpenVPN config attached): Streaming does not work Speed is heavily reduced For reference, the Proton VPN server I am using has the following settings: UK Server London #44 (Plus server, so guaranteed to allow streaming) UDP connection Please let me know if I can post the Hybrid VPN log, as I'm not sure if this contains identifiable information. I would be grateful if you could help me resolve this issue, I'm keen to use the Hybrid VPN feature as intended! Thanks, Addy uk-44.protonvpn.com.udp.ovpn

  15. Hi guys, Since a power outage at my house my XR500 won't work and now I can't play or use my devices, the led power is blinking systematically. I can't also do a factory reset on the XR500, I don't know why. Can you guys help me with this problem ? If someone have the same problem as mine, please notify me. I'm french by the way excuse me if my english isn't the greatest. Thank you guys. YSweezy
  16. Hi, I've set up a VPN configuration on my XR500, and it's connecting just fine. The problem I have is when i select "Do Not VPN These Services", and select Source Engine Games for my computer, it still says I am on the VPN. Normally I wouldn't mind this, but I like to play some CS:GO community servers that don't allow the use of VPNs. I'm not sure if I am doing something wrong, but any help would be appreciated 😁
  17. Hi, I have recently been troubleshooting some weird issues with my QoS;. I'm not sure when it started but I just noticed it recently, it could have been like this all along I just didn't know. I do have a fairly new gaming PC and for a time there if I had QoS enabled I would only get about 12 mb down and 3 up even with QoS set to 18 up and 18 down. If I turn QoS off the speed test would show full speeds. I shut the computer down, disconnected the ethernet cable, then deleted it from the router. Plugged it back in so it would bring it back in, same issue. I had tried to plug another laptop into the same port on the switch, same cable and it did not have that issue. I decided to change the QoS to a higher speed and all of a sudden my speed test started getting full speeds. My biggest concern for QoS not working right is the fact the Speed Test is giving me full speeds even with QoS enabled. I am just using Speedtest.net. If I have QoS on the device set to 18/18, shouldn't the speed test show around the same speeds? I really just want to make sure i am utilizing this router the way it was meant. I don't think the Anti-Bufferbloat is going to work correctly if QoS isn't working right. I could easily have 10 devices streaming at any one time in my house. I'm a cable cutter with 3 kids, Roku devices all over the house and Tablets everywhere. Here are some specs CenturyLink Fiber 1gb/1gb XR500 with V2.3.2.114-DumaOS3.0.203 All Connections are hard wired Thanks for your time! James
  18. Hey DumaFam! My name is Kirneill from SenseQuality and I optimize Professional Players/Streamers/Influencers. (Some of you You might know me from my old name SweatPapi) I just wanted to show my appreciation to the DUMA family and answer some questions you guys might have 😊 To give you a summary, we Optimize almost everything. PCs, Networks, Streams, even Residential Construction. I got lucky as Call of Duty switched to online + Before we started, A lot of people (outside of us nerds🤓) didn't believe in Optimization. The secret to Optimizations? I'll tell you: I don't know everything & I never assume someone's situation is the same. (It never is) This approach leads to better decisions, research, and results. That's pretty much it😊 Why do we recommend DumaOS? Because even though we work with almost all advanced routers (OpenWRT, PFSense,Etc.) , we recommend DumaOS as it's user friendly and people can use it after we finish optimizing them! (Ex: Geofilter) Duma focuses on delivering a user friendly environment and it saves us a lot of explaining while providing the same value than other routers. (AT A LOWER COST, WUT?)🤣 To me, It's about delivering the best most consistent experience! Here is examples of Optimizations: JOEWOE.mp4 So Ask Me Anything and i'll do my best to answer! I appreciate all of you!
  19. long time user, first time poster! key information: i own the XR1000 My buddy has the XR500 bare with me here, i always play with optimal tuned QOS and Geo-Filter to the most stable configuration i can possibly get for COD MW. i usually average 60-85 ping in warzone which is reasonable and by all means playable, however when i connect with a buddy not far from me in Southern California about almost 900 miles distance my ping is horrendous at 120-150 constant and games don't go well. now i know Lag Comp in game is mainly responsible i 1000% understand (i work for Geeksquad) *so i know my way around networking* . my main question is, is there any kind of way to lower our connection between us 2 in the DUMAOS? anyway to improve our overall connection, secondly is there a way to actually black list an entire area of the GEO map to disregard bad rerouting that eventually connects me to my friend? **Side Note, HIs connection is usually 20-40 in game** i know it seems like a strange way to find a solution but im at my wits end there has to be something with all this POWER! haha thanks for any help!
  20. Bonjour, J'ai acheté le XR500 pour pouvoir jouer à des jeux comme Call Of Duty en ayant un ping stable car chez moi l'ADSL est assez instable et il y a beaucoup d'appareil connecté. J'ai configuré le dumaOS pour faire en sorte que je n'ai plus ce problème mais en game mon ping monte et redescend ... J'ai ouvert les ports, j'ai configuré le géofiltre sur 600km autour de chez moi, mis ma console dans "hiérarchisation du traffic", mis 82 dans le QoS pour ma console. A noter que le routeur a détecté que j'avais une bande passante de 10Mbits/s en download et 1Mbits/s en upload. Pouvez vous m'aider ?? Merci d'avance !
  21. Hello all, I recently installed Pi-hole on a Raspberry Pi to use as a local DNS resolver and ad blocker. Normally, in the Pi-hole logs you will see activity broken down by local IP of device (see attachment). With the XR500 all DNS requests are coming through which according to Pi-hole documentation, is potentially the fault of the router. Does anyone know how I can change this? Thanks!
  22. So im sure you know there is this restarting thing that keeps happening with a lot of XR500s this is happening in 2021 and i looked at many user support forms NO SOLUTIONS I CAN FIND about it keep turning off and on every 5 minutes and it just keeps getting worse and worse please Reply ONLY IF YOU KNOW A FIX yes i factory reset it yes i updated it i tried a lot but only share me a fix if you know on.
  23. My internet works fine and i can browse with no problems. But as soon as I start any torrent client( tried with several and with 50% speed limitation) I get a lot of dns lookup errors while trying to browse. So downloads are going through just fine and while trying to browse the web it seems as if there's no internet connection getting dns errors. Already tried changing DNS servers to several other ones but this problem is annoying repeatable. What's the problem here? its been like this for around a week now. I haven't changes anything on my pc software wise and I haven't upgraded any firmware on router this problem just started out of nowhere. Any help would be appreciated! Running: XR500 V2.3.2.56 Windows 10 x64 all browsers tested and same problem. Even other devices on the LAN. Problem is for browsing the Web but downloads / netflix streaming remains unaffected

  25. 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.
