    Seems to be 5GHz wifi challenges with this latest beta, “but it is a beta” so not unexpected

    I am trying the new XR500 V2.3.2.108 Open Beta for my XR500 and must say it is working rather well.

    Below is the new Ping HeatMap showing the CSGO servers and there associated ping distance and good to see we have a CS:Go server in UK

    A newcomer in DumaOS 3.0, Ping Heatmap changes the way you play your favourite online games. With Ping Heatmap, DumaOS pings every server for your game of choice and visualises your latency to each one – in short, you’ll see which servers give you the smoothest gameplay. The heatmap is continually updated with the most recent games, so you can still have the advantage on brand new releases.

    Tests can be scheduled to keep track of your best servers over time – providing you with the knowledge to always pick the best server for your game. To really stay at an advantage, you can apply your results to your Geo-Filter selections, ensuring you always have the optimal connection.

    Just tried the new DumaOS Traffic Controller and loving the interface and options, it as great to see at long last a Netgear Gaming router with usable Parental controls that include both time limiting options as well as Content control in the form of Categories (Games/ Streaming) and Applications which are Game Specific (Call of Duty / Battlefield) etc.

     

     

     

     

    Monday Is also available and  a few UI issues (but it is a beta),

    DumaOS XR500 V2.3.2.108 Open Beta  also has Connection benchmark which will test your internet connection and rate it against 3 criteria.

    • Speed
    • Ping
    • Ping – Under Load (A Known Bug with results)

    So it appears after a few days Ping Heatmap fails to load running XR500 running XR500-V2.3.2.108

    Problem occurs after a few days and is with Chrome, Explore and Edge Browsers on Windows 10 Laptop and I read also the XR1000 has similar problem.

    Error message created is : The operation is taking longer than expected. Please briefly wait before using this Rapp.

    Netduma have been informed.
