  1. After setting up XR500 local network connections are extremely slow, when they work at all. I cannot ssh into my server which is connected on LAN from any devices on WiFi. Similar situation with the services hosted on the server with SAMBA shares inaccessible and web services failing to load. I have tried adjusting QoS to give the two devices more bandwidth in case that was an issue, I have also turned off QoS completely, no dice.
  2. I have used both models for years now and after many different configurations and test i find that my R1 seems to perform better than my much more expensive Netgear XR500... Has anyone else come to the same conclusion? without doubt the XR500 out performs the R1 in many aspects especially wifi but over wire connections i feel that the R1 is achieving better bufferbloat and stable latency/ping. i tried everything on my XR500 to achieve A+ ratings on dslreports with no luck, if anything it seemed to make everything worse. Don't know if the R1 uses different queue management algorithms or if its a firmware issue. will be interesting to see how the R1 performs with the new 3.0 firmware. I think the Mikrotik routerboard that the R1 uses is a very good router and maybe Netgear routers are not quite as well suited for the same tasks... Or is it all placebo and perception? hope they bring out the R2
  3. Hi, I recently managed to get myself a second hand XR500. I seem to be having some sort of DPI issue with duma classified games router tends to detect priority traffic but it doesn't seem to be correct. For example it's mostly noticeable in BO4 where I can see the ingame ping. With only dumaos classfied games checked I get jitter in game about 15-5ms. Same happens if I chose my ps4 as console with dumaos classfied games disabled. But when I enter the ports manually 1-65535 in source and destination my ingame jitter drops to about 5-3ms resulting in a way smoother gameplay of any call of duty game. I tried using a bt hub 2 and having XR as dhcp with all devices connected to it and using a modem with it I tried netgear dm200 and now a bt g.fast modem with pppoe details on the xr. And my gameplay only seems smooth when using all the ports prioritised with dumaos classfied games disabled. The issue I get with it is that when dumaos classfied games is on I can notice a delay in hit markers which I'd say is about 50-100ms but it happens randomly during the gun fights. Also that results my bullets going completely blank and doing no damage for example using the sword fish in bo4 its a 5 shot kill gun but with the dumaos classfied games enabled it can take as much as 15 bullets to kill or it can take just the 4 which is weird. I usually play at about 12-13ms ping to the server in uk. At least that's what autoping is reporting. I get 142 down and 30 up I have my qos sliders set at 70% set as always. If I plug in my r1 with original fw it tends to work perfectly also if I run the test on r1 I get exceptional on everything with ping variation only being about 0.5ms. The reason I don't want to use the r1 is because it doesn't cover the whole house with wifi and my missis complains 😅 so the XR500 seemed like a reasonable investment. I tried rolling back to 2.3.2.40 which seemed to make jitter slightly better at about 10-3ms but I had same inconsistencies with the gameplay. But both firmware versions seem to work really well just with all ports in traffic priotization. I was just wondering wether it's a know bug or am I just setting something up wrong?
  4. I'd say my knowledge is above average when it comes to tech/internet stuff. I can usually troubleshoot pretty well given I can Google almost anything. But I've completely exhausted my resources and don't know what to do anymore. For starters, here's what I got. I have the 1000 down package from Cox. I have their modem/router plugged to the wall. And my XR500 plugged into their modem/router. Then I have my PS4 wired into the XR500. I've moved plenty of times in the past and have had numerous routers. So setting up internet isn't new to me. I forwarded the ports needed for Modern Warfare on PS4 and it still didn't make my NAT Type Open in-game. I made sure UPNP is enabled. I have geo filter turned off. I resetted everything multiple times. I'm beginning to think this is a Nighthawk issue and not a PS4 issue. I never had a problem with routers getting over Moderate NAT even if there's a modem/router in-between them and the internet. I know turning on Bridge mode on the modem/router might alleviate that issue but I never had to do this in the past and even Netgear doesn't recommend turning on Bridge mode. I also don't know how I feel about using DMZ servers. I've never done it before but I read that it makes my internet more vulnerable to attacks. Something I also noticed is my game lagging more. I play competitive so I'm in custom games lobbies 90% of the time. I would get noticeable lag spikes where my game freezes for 5 seconds and I would end up somewhere else in the map (usually dead). No one else is experiencing this in the lobby. There's also a noticeable delay/lag with my bullets actually landing on the opponents. And I know this can mean several things but if I can notice it with just a day of playing with people in similar servers then I feel it's legitimate. It's my first time using Duma OS so I won't be surprised if I did something wrong with it. If anyone with more experience can help then I'd greatly appreciate it.
  5. Hi guys Just wanting a little help with an issue on my router not being able to register the PS4 some times. I've tried a lot of different setups over the last year and see it come up in different places after a facreset Some times its when bringing it into the device manager for the first time, It just does n't register as a playstation and has (Unknown)(Computer) and other times when setting up port forwarding/trigger or reserving an IP again (Unknown) This then seems to lead to games not being bandwidth restricted even though the speed test on the playstation says that everything is working eg. PS4 upload is 900 kbps but in game it says that the bandwidth is 4122kbps and this will not change no matter what bandwidth I allocate and it happens with different games. It was all working 2 days ago and then it wasn't , whats going on???
  6. Hello, As a lot of us are spending a lot more time on our home wireless networks these days I've started to get annoyed by connectivity problems that had me digging into my network setup a bit more. I became aware of the concept of bufferbloat and did a number of tests using Pingplotter. What I've found is that I can easily saturate my connecting triggered very high latency and massive packet loss. None of these problems exist on my wired connections, as I have gigabit up & down that is nearly impossible to saturate. In playing around with the anti-bufferbloat settings I found that if I restricted things way way down (50mbps) that the wireless connections would behave. Obviously this is not an ideal solution though, as I have a decent amount of hardwired devices throughout the house that take advantage of having much faster speeds. From what I can tell, my other option would be to manually crawl through the bandwidth allocation and set caps based on wired or wireless devices. This isn't really ideal either, as my devices table is huge and I don't want to have to go manually adjust the limit every time a friend brings a new phone over. It seems like this should be a common use case...are there any other options that I'm missing here?
  7. I cannot get the geofilter to work on the XR500 for Destiny 2 on Xbox One no matter what I try. Let me preface this by stating that I've tried using the Destiny setting, stopped using the Destiny setting and set my range to the minimum of 69 miles and set my location in Antarctica, tried auto ping only, tried strict only, tried both auto ping and strict, added both of my primary consoles in the Add Device section, tried wired and Wi-Fi and have the bridge setting turned on in my gateway. Nothing works. The reason that I purchased this router was strictly for the geofiltering, and I've talked to a few people that have it while gaming that said they set their geofilter to only match up with themselves and it works 100% of the time. Unfortunately that was awhile back and as they were random players on different continents I didn't bother adding them or asking more about it. I use my consoles to help people rank up in comp by win matching. If you don't know what that is, I have 2 host consoles and bring 2 players into each party. I then launch into comp, choosing which console to launch first to ensure that is the one that gets host, and as soon as they match but before they launch in I back out the fireteam that isn't host. The host fireteam loads into a match with no opponents and it's an instant win for that team and no loss for the other team. I'm a PvE player. I haven't played competitively in over a decade, and have no desire to. Most of the people that I play with are in the top 100 or 200 in raid leaderboards, strikes etc. and have no interest in playing PvP, nor do I. That being said, certain guns can only be acquired through playing comp. Rather than employ a method that would be considered cheating and hurting other players' stats, I do this to help people get the glory they need to acquire the guns they want (or at least the quests for them). I don't do kill lobbies. If someone wants the gun that bad then they can go in and get the kills the old fashioned way, but some people simply don't have the time, skill or friends with the skill to confidently go into matchmaking and hit the glory that they need. Not to mention people that manipulate connections to lag you out so that they get the win. Long story long... I was able to match up relatively easily when everyone was around the same glory (prior to purchasing the XR500), but if everyone was 4000 - 5500 glory except for one guy that was at 1000 glory they would never match. Hence the router purchase. I've spent hours and hours trying different configurations, selecting different consoles to be host (had some friends bring theirs over and was running 6 simultaneously) and still no dice. Is there a solution to this issue? Does geofiltering even work in Destiny 2 anymore? I can get it to work to where I can load into strikes solo, and I can also load into the tower solo. I can have both host consoles with a full fireteam load into their own instance of the tower or any planet, but for the life of me I can't get them to match up in comp regardless of the location I set or the settings I've tried. Please for the love of all things holy someone have a solution so that I didn't just throw away $300. Thanks in advance for suffering through my rant lol
  8. I’m installing security cameras soon and don’t want to put them on my main network. How do I do this with an XR500? What’s the best way to do this?
  9. 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.
  10. I have recently purchased an XR500 Nighthawk gaming router, however I am having tremendous difficulty with setting the internet up. I do not have a modem (like it keeps mentioning) and plugging the provided black Ethernet (LAN) cable into the back of the yellow Internet socket isn’t doing me any justice. I am starting to believe that I need a modem for this? I am currently with Vodafone Broadband (UK) and I have been told that I can use this router with my broadband. I guess my overall query is, how do I get my current broadband to be on this router WITHOUT a modem, surely this is possible? Or perhaps even if I have to still use my Vodafone router with my XR500, I don’t really care. I have a BT Openreach master socket by the way (if that’s even worth mentioning) Any and preferably all possibilities would be greatly appreciated (as long as they don’t consist of a modem) Even if I have to go as far as purchasing a special cable, because my Openreach master socket has to have a micro filter and that requires RJ-11,which goes into the micro filter, and the micro filter into the master socket. I have seen the XR500 only allows RJ-45, so I was wondering if getting a RJ-11 to RJ-45 (RJ-11 on one end of the cable and RJ-45 on the other end) and obviously the RJ-45 will go into the XR500 and the RJ-11 into my micro filter, which is going into my master socket. I have attached a photo of what my master socket (or even my general phone line sockets look like around the rest of my premises, along with how it is plugged into the router) just so that anyone who has a solution can have a better understanding of what I’m dealing with.
  11. Alright I just recently spend almost $300 on the xr500 for my gaming experience. I play on Xbox one mainly shooter and the only games I play are cod, Apex legends, destiny2. I am frustrated I did everything optimally suggested from the dumaos yet I have a horrible experience when gaming. Example! If I see my target first and I shot first and I did everything right on my part I shouldnt be the 1st one to die instantly. So I knew something was off because it was like this for the other games so I went and tested my bufferbloat on dslreport.com even though you guys are telling me use pingplotter etc I'm not wasting my time downloading a free trial of bs when I clearly feel the difference in my gaming and dslreport is accurately confirming it... I seriously need some help if not I'm just going to return this product. Like $300 of false advertisement? Wow!
  12. Hi Here is a guide on how to successfully create Port Forwarding rules to guarantee you an OPEN NAT on your Nighthawk XR Series router. For a list of required ports for a certain game please consult portforward.com for a comprehensive list or comment on this post or message me and I will provide you with the port numbers for your game and Console/PC. PLEASE NOTE: If you have your router behind a modem/router combo then you must disable UPnP and/or any port forwarding rules you have have configured on it.
  13. Hi there, Searched the forum for possible answers but could not find anything relates to my question. I recently upgraded to NetGear XR500 from my old D-Link DIR-825. I was mainly using three functionalities on this old router, for a server in the cloud to make a service call which is running on one of my devices on the network. So, I was utilizing three main functionalities: Dynamic DNS. I found this is available on DumaOS, so it is fine. Inbound Filter: Allowed me to define IP ranges and create groups for these IP addresses, ie. allow/block incoming request IP address(es) for specific forwarding. Could not locate the same on DumaOS. Virtual Server: Allowed me to forward incoming requests to a specific device IP/port on my network, in conjunction with Inbound Filter. So, only incoming requests from a specific IP range was allowed to be forwarded to the device. Also, could not find the same on DumaOS, would port forwarding achieve the same effect? How can I achieve the same with DumaOS? Obviously, Dynamic DNS is not an issue but I could not figure out the rest. Not sure placing the device within the DMZ would work, but I do not know the security implications of that. Thanks
  14. I just got my XR500 today so am still learning the DUMAOS, but one thing I notice is the time is incorrect under 'System info' and the 'logs'. I google the issue and seems others have reported the same, but, they were able to correct the time by going to 'Settings ---> Content Filtering ---> Schedule', and from there they see an option near the bottom to change the timezone. Of course murphy's law though for me, no timezone setting there. Was the feature removed in the latest version of the OS? My OCD is going bonkers and I really want to correct the time 😫. Resetting the router also didn't work. Time settings in Win 10 are set to auto update/sync and are correct on my PC.
  15. So basically, im using the xr500 which is being fed from my virgin router. its showing my total download bandwidth to be 383mb but when my xbox is downloading a new update or something its maxing out at about 25mb and under the network monitor i'm getting a very low over all usage of bandwidth that peaks about 50mb so why isn't it using all the available bandwidth and only picking up around 50mb over all total usage when theres a possible 383 it could use to make my xbox download quicker sorry im not very techinical so i hope that made sense
  16. Hi I recently got the xr500 , went though all the setting geo filter and qos . I am getting high pings when im searching for a match on call of duty and also lagging. Can someone help me.
  17. Hi Duma team! I'm having an issue with receiving an IP address from my ISP after re-booting my XR500 (this has worked with other NetGear routers I own w/ the same modem). I am currently using firmware version V2.3.2.56 with MAC address spoofing, but I am unable to get an IP address every time I reboot the router. The reason why I reboot is to resolve issues with QoS and Network Monitor not loading (and eventually failing to load w/ error messages). Upon reboot, I see 0.0.0.0 as my IP address with the status 'disconnected'. If I unplug my ethernet cable that's connected to my modem and re-plug it in, I am able to properly receive an IP address. Any thoughts? Seems weird that I'd need to physically unplug a cable every time I reboot my router. I've used the Nighthawk AC2600 with the same modem and setup with no issues receiving an IP address. I know you're not Netgear support, but I want to make sure that my issues aren't DumaOS related! Thanks for your help, Chris
  18. So , I am trying to configure two XR500's in a client to gateway configuration. I have sucessfully configured one XR500 as a gateway and it tested correctly with an adroid phone client , I am able to access the gateway network fine. The first question is how to generate the ovpn file for the client XR500 ? can one of the pre configured files that the router generates be used ? or is it a question of manual editing , if so which lines need amendment ? Second question , once the VPN is setup , can a device on the client router be added to the gateway geofilter as a device ? I'm thinking not , that all devices in the geofolter need to be on the same subnet. I may be thinking too linearly m which is why I'm asking if anyone has thoughts on making this work or has a more elegant solution ?
  19. I bought a XR500 a little over a week ago and just started experiencing the internet dropping. If I hook up directly to my modem I can still reach the web so it’s definitely the router. I couldn’t even reach the router by typing in its IP address. Sometimes turning it off and unplugging for a minute fixes it, other times I have to factory reset. I know there was a problem in previous firmware’s, is it still an issue? Is another firmware coming to fix? Or do I need to tinker with settings? Never really had a router that wasn’t plug n play. Any help is appreciated, just would like to know if it’s worth the hassle to try to get working or if I should just return.
  20. There's an issue were I get unstable ping later in the day after a restart on the router. Attached are screenshots of Pingplotter 5 when i have only the modem plugged in vs when i plug in and turn on the XR500 router. Now at first couple of hours after a restart it runs perfect. its only after a couple of hours this happens (5-6 hrs in) When in game Modernwarefare it also becomes apparent. But yeah need some help on this. any would help
  21. The images i provided are the results from the tests i ran in order to narrow the issue down to the router. Test 1: Description: Speedtest with my pc plugged directly into my modem Result: Close to expected speeds Test 2: Description: Router speedtest after running setup wizard Result: Close to expected speeds Test 3: Description: Speedtest with my pc plugged into my router w/ QOS enabled Result: 10% of expected speed Test 4: Description: Speedtest with my pc plugged into my router w/ QOS disabled Result: 10% of expected speed Any idea on what might be causing such slow speeds?
  22. Each time I make any changes to certain settings like QOS, bufferbloat, etc, I reboot the router (as I read this was recommended with any setting changes made). After doing so, I cannot connect to the internet via wifi (connecting to internet via ethernet cable on router works however). The only solution that I found that works is to factory reset the router, which then allows me to connect to the internet via wifi. Please help. Thanks in advance.
  23. Issue: I had been using the XR500 for about a year now with no issues, using both geolocation and QoS successfully, I had been running 2.3.2.56. Last night this all changed with no change of settings or environment that I’m aware of. My connection this morning began dropping randomly, often after only 5 minutes of usage. When the connection drops the Wi-Fi network (both 2.4 and 5GHZ networks) disappear. Both devices that connected via hardline and on Wi-Fi experience this lack of connection. All devices in my home (phones, tablets, laptops, etc) are experiencing this issue. I verified with my ISP (Spectrum) and nothing is wrong on their end. When the network comes back I’ll start using it again, as normal, and anywhere from 2-15 minute later the issue repeats itself, the network disappears and comes back 1-3 minutes later. There is no website, traffic, or device that seems to be consistently causing this issue. What I’ve tried so far: I’ve tried the basics and turned unplugged both my router and modem for 2-3 minutes and plugging them back in. I’ve turned QOS off, DOS and Port Scan , Geolocation off. I disabled port triggering (which I was not using) just in case this was somehow part of the issue. I tried backing up my configuration, returning to factory settings, and then restoring from my backup. I set my system to use Static IP addresses rather than Dynamically from the ISP. I noticed the following events occurring my logs with some regularity. [DumaOS] DHCP new lease allocated., Thursday, March 19, 2020 15:56:37 [DumaOS] DHCP new event., Thursday, March 19, 2020 15:56:37 I tried using the V2.3.2.40-C242a. hotfix firmware. I also tried the original V2.3.2.40 firmware. Last thing I did was upgrade back up to .56 from .40. And for a while the .40 firmware version seemed to fix things, but then 7 days later on March 26th (today) things started back up with no changes to any settings, or new devices. All the same symptoms and issues listed above. I went on to do countless factory resets and firmware changes, jumping around from .40, .40-C242a, and .56. Every configuration will be fine for about 5-10 min and then the issue starts back up. Where I stand with things: Modem: Motorola SURFboard Model: SB6141 (note this modem is mine and not owned by Spectrum, it is from their approved list) XR500 V2.3.2.40 Geo-Filter – off QoS – off Port triggering -off Guest Wifi – off No VPN in use Using Static IP addresses With the new work from home situation resulting from Coronavirus this issue really couldn’t have come at a worse time for me and my wife. It is essential that we have a reliable internet connection. Any assistance you can give would be helpful. If there is a specific log set that could be helpful please let me know.
  24. hi I have bought yet another XR500 as my WiFi on the R1 isn't powerful enough in the apartment i live at. the problem i have now is with the R1 i get the most stable connection ever see pic and the XR500 i cant achieve the same same no matter what i have tried? can someone help me on this matter as i feel like sending the XR500 back 😞 top Pic is R! and Bottom is XR500
