  1. 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!
  2. So today we saw the new beautiful machine R2!! Congratulations guys!!! i have a lot of questions about that... you say that it will be release 6th August with the DumaOS 3.0.

I must sell my XR500 to buy the R2???? Which is better?????
  3. 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!
  4. 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!
  5. 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 !
  6. 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!
  7. 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.
  8. 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

  10. 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.
  11. Bonjour, Souhaitant remplacer ma Livebox 4 (Fibre), j'ai acheté un NightHawk XR500. Je disposais d'un ONT-SPF, j'ai donc acheté un boitier TP-Link MC220L. Le schéma est donc le suivant : Fibre => ONT-SPF + MC220L => XR500. J'ai suivi le paramétrage proposé par le routeur, en choissisant mon ISP : Orange France DHCP, j'ai rentré mon identifiant fti/ et j'ai coché la case "Activer la TV Orange". J'ai paramétré pour mon réseau Wifi le même SSID que ma Livebox (qui est débranchée je le rappelle) ainsi que la même clé. Mon débit est d'environ 300Mb/s. Cependant, je ne comprends pas, mon décodeur TV (connecté en WIFI) fonctionne bien mais je constate des coupures d'image et de son ce qui rend le service TV inutilisable. Y'a-t-il un paramétrage particulier à effectuer pour stabiliser ceci ? Précision : J'ai testé la désactivation de QoS et SmartConnect, mais sans effet. Les saccades disparaissent au bout de 3-4 minutes, mais si je touche à un paramètre du routeur, rebelote, ça re-saccade pendant 3-4 min. Au bout de 15-20 min, écran blanc indiquant que la Box TV a perdu la connexion. Le Wifi ne semble pas stable. Auriez-vous rencontré de tels soucis lors du remplacement de votre LB par un routeur ? Si oui, avez-vous trouvé une solution ? Je précise que je ne peux pas brancher la Box TV en ethernet. Le routeur est a environ 4-5 mètres du décodeur. Je n'avais jamais eu de soucis de lag/saccades/freeze avec la Livebox. En espérant que vous aurez des pistes ! Cordialement, Fabien
  12. Hi all, I seem to have issues with the geofilter on my XR500. I live in Germany. When I bought the XR500 I set my radius on around 450 KM around me to connect to the 2 closest Modern Warfare servers (taken from the dumaOS Modern Warfare Servers). At the beginning, it worked perfectly. It took a little bit longer to find a game, but when I did the connection was amazing! Now, since some days, I find games extremely quick and play against people from spain for example, who clearly had a connection advantage (so I guess the server was closer to them, outside of my radius) So I did a test: I shrunk the circle to the minimum (100KM), in this radius there are only villages around my city, and non of the servers are in the radius. According to the radius, I shouldn't find any games. But then I searched for a game and found one immediately, playing against spanish and french people (I live in east germany). Does anyone know why it suddenly stopped to filter? Hope someone can help me! Thanks in advance!
  13. Hola buenas tardes, a ver si alguien me puede ayudar. Donde puedo descargar Dumaos 3.0 para el router Netgear XR500? Gracas
  14. I'm planning to buy a new Netgear but i need more info. 1. What are the differences between XR700 and XR1000? 2. Why the XR1000 cost less than XR700? I have already a Netgear XR500 and i play Destiny 2. Until july/august the Geo-Filter works fine, now it causes a lot of problems. I know that the XR300 and XR500 have the matchmaking issue. I've read in other topics that the XR700 has no problems but what about the XR1000? Does it work fine as well? If i purchase the XR700, did i'll get future updates or it will cause problems like the XR500? Also, on Destiny 2 i'm getting rabbit errors, how do i resolve this? I'm italian, my ISP is Fastweb.
  15. Hi just purchased a cm1000 modem and a xr500 gaming router. It was recommended after doing plenty of research. I am having an issue where my internet will stop working both wired and wireless connections. Was working the day I got it then the next day coming home from work it wasn’t. Restarted my modem then everything was working again. Talked to my ISP and had a tech come out, tested everything and said all download and upload speeds were good so I’m assuming it has to do with my hardware. Anybody know why my internet keeps going out or if there’s an official fix for this? I was updated to the latest firmware but after doing some research it seems like this is kind of a common problem? Found an older post and downgraded my firmware yesterday and it was working ok, I’ll find out how well it’s working when I get home tonight.
  16. Hey hey, after my recent-ish issues where I had to RMA my XR500 I ran into a different problem on both the pre-RMAd and the after RMA device: The operation is taking longer than expected. Please briefly wait before using this R-App. When I check the logs I see a few [DumaOS] R-App store cloud sync failed, Saturday, July 18, 2020 07:09:38 On the old device I simply shrugged it off since I was gonna replace it anyway, but on the new one (fresh setup, after Firmware update) it's pretty annoying ngl A few symptoms: Dashboard loads super long after popping in the message: "Please briefly wait before using this R-App" Geo-Filter, same spiel - long load, same error. Render is it unusable. QoS, same long load, same error. Render is it unusable. Device Manager, same long load, same error. Render is it unusable. Hybrid-VPN, same long load, same error. Render is it unusable. System Information, seems to work. Settings, seems to work, i clicked through all the instances. If I click, on any App (i.e. Network Monitor), I can't attempt to access anything else until the app "fails" to load and then allows me to enter the Settings for example Edit: After doing reboot number 4, it seems to work for now. Only made this topic because after rebooting 3 times, on a new device it didn't work. Maybe helps QA
  17. Once the errors start, more follow. These are a few, I'll add more as time permits. I'm not here to bitch and moan. I really am excited about this router and it's OS. I want it to work and succeed. Thanks, Rob
  18. Everything was going fine with my nighthawk xr500 router and modem until 2 weeks ago a storm happened in my area causing my internet lines to be brought down. I contacted my ISP and they had repaired the damaged lines outside my house and even provided me with a newer and better modem. The technician ran speed tests on the modem and router and said the modem was pulling above avg speeds as in a good sign, but said the router was lacking in speeds. Ive tried resetting the router multiple times and changing and turning on multiple different settings. Still no change. I get 1gb download speeds and 40 upload. I'll run a speed test on my lan connected pc and pull the speeds that I pay for. Then run another test a minute later and pull below 100 download, but my upload is rather normal. Playing games are almost unplayable with frequent lag spikes and internet connection interrupted signals. I've tried 3 different ethernet cables and still no difference. All devices in the house will experience slow speeds frequently.
  19. I'm on Firmware - V2.3.2.104-DumaOS3.0-Beta Duma OS -3.0.150 I updated to the above around Oct 10th 2020. It went off without a hitch and I observed no problems at all. I had roughly 3 weeks with new firmware and OS without issue. This started about a week ago, I lost internet on LAN and Wi-Fi. I rebooted the XR500, internet came back. Next night same thing, no internet, reboot. Every evening, I have to reboot to get intenet back, again, both LAN and Wi-Fi. I have not reset to factory as I've read on these forums of others doing the same without it fixing the issue. If I could please request to PM/DM my logs as it has personal info in it. Also, I'm getting various errors when applying changes within the settings interface. For instance, in the Qos section, any changes I make, it says applying then an error box pops up with the message: RPC error 'ERROR_NOENT' Rile not found in chain Thanks, Rob
  20. So I have recently tried to open some ports on my XR500 router for my PS4 and after assigning a static IP and forwarding my ports I checked the port map and only see one port opened (9308) and it is not even a port that I have in the list. I'm confused as to why this port is evening showing up on the port map. When I looked up the port it says that it is related to the playstation network. I'm not sure if I am doing the correct steps to open the ports but from what I have read online it seems like this has been an issue for this router showing those ports. Any input would be appreciated.
  21. Hi everyone!! i wonder which is the proper way to connect my XR500 on my ISP modem/router. Via bridge mode or PPPoE passthrough??
  22. 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.
  23. I had to factory reset my gateway and take the xr500 completely out of the loop for my kids sake. They are all on chromebooks doing home schooling and every period they attend the virtual learning of each teacher with zoom meeting but starting Wednesday last week zoom was not able to connect they would join the class but then get dropped. Talked to school technical support did all these foresters in chromebook but in the end I reset my ATT fiber gateway back to stock and connect to it and everything works flawlessly. on the xr500 side it’s running the beta firmware and multiple factory reset dances have been performed. Regardless of all these resets only thing I noticed that wasn’t right was ipv4 and ipv6. I never really cared about ipv6 but within inner circle of friends on Xbox everyone would be running ipv4 and ipv6. Right now even though my ATT gateway has ipv6 enabled my console is getting an ipv4 address but my kids come before my gaming so as long as school keeps spinning for them I will sit on sidelines. I’m curious if anything in the next firmware update will help with this. Gratuitous ipv4 currently on console not bouncing back and forth from ipv4 and ipv6 like it would when the xr500 was connected.
  24. Hello, I recently started having issues with my xr500, where the Eth1-Eth4 lights went from white, to orange. I noticed when they turn orange, they stay orange until I turn the router off/on. When the light is orange I notice I get really slow download speeds. Any help would be appreciated. Sorry in advance if this has already been discussed, I tried looking prior to making this thread.
