mondotti Posted August 30, 2017 Share Posted August 30, 2017 First of all the obligatory info: Firmware Rev: R1 debug version 1.03.6h Current Speeds: IPv6 is where I have it set and the Average is 115 down and 25 up. Current Set up: Comcast Triple Play Router/Modem/phone placed in Bridge mode followed by the NetDuma router. To Xbox One and Xbox 360 To be conservative, I set the bandwidth to 100 down and 20 up NAT shows as open on my Xbox Current Issue 1 is with Xbox One intermittent God like players : No difference in game play now vs. with my Net gear router that was in place after the Comcast router that again remains in bridge mode. To be clear, I play COD AW and COD black Ops III Before I started down this path to purchase and try the Netduma, I would intermittently get good lobbies where the game would flow as expected. If I was killed, it was legit. However, I would also intermittently get crappy lobbies where 2 to 3 players would constantly survive and or show NO damage after clearly hitting them multiple times EVEN point blank. These are the jag-offs that are constantly at the top of the leader board because of this ability to avoid damage not because of skill but because of the lag advantage. In short, I would watch the replay and if it was as I suspected, an unfair advantage, I would leave the lobby in search for another. annoying, but that was how I dealt with it. Now with the Netduma in place, following the optimal settings guide, using the host filter to rate, (this is after trying the default COD profiles that were useless but I will get in to that later) I literally see no difference. In short, it seems that I have eliminated one or more waves of low income ISP gamers only to trade them in for the next wave of substandard connection gamers. While in tandem,my range of available game lobbies continues to shrink forcing me to expand my range just to even secure a game. The result of expanding the range only seems to multiply the number of sites that i restrict. Current Issue 2: Unable to connect to party chat. Have added friend location to allow, with quality setting maxed, removed strict mode. Only seems to work if I expand the range around the entire North American Region. Since I have a large home with a POE security system, multiple wireless and wired users, Originally I had placed the Netduma in a DMZ after my NetGear router. but for this exercise, again the set-up I currently have EXCLUDES this router and is using Only the Comcast router in Bridge mode with the Netduma tethered right to it followed by my Xbox One console. So with my family connectivity currently limited and my security system off-line to get to the root of the issue, thus the urgency and reluctance to keep this router unless I can get some relief. There are Other issues that I do not like about this product but for now lets start with and focus on the primary 2 problems I have. Please advise soon. I have until Friday to submit for a return and intend to so if there is nothing to be gained. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
