This guide assumes you have first followed the Quickstart guide found here.

We will cover the following in order to get you up and running as quickly as possible:


Browser & Accessing the Interface

Internet Explorer isn't supported by the NETDUMA - please use a browser such Google Chrome or Firefox when using the NETDUMA dashboard.

Access the interface by typing 192.168.88.1 or http://R1 into the URL of your web browser.

Upgrade

Before continuing with this guide you will need to upgrade to the latest firmware version, to check your version & how to upgrade please go here. You will be on the latest version if you have recently bought the router.

Speed

The NETDUMA needs to know what internet speeds you are paying for/expect to receive.

Go to the "Congestion control" page on the left. 



Click "Set Bandwidth" 



Input your bandwidth speeds. 



Click "Update bandwidth".

You'll ask you if you want to automatically setup for your speeds.


Click Yes if you want it to do it for you, otherwise follow the instructions below to set up the router manually for your speeds.

Local Congestion

When people/devices in your home are using the Internet heavily, it can cause buffering/lag. To fix this we can make use of the Congestion Control feature of the router. All devices/people in your home will then be able to use the Internet without affecting anyone else.

Go to "Congestion Control" on the left of the NETDUMA interface.

When Gaming:

Put the "Anti-flood" sliders to 70% for the Download Cap & 70% for the Upload Cap.


On Hyper-Traffic, select the console you will be using as well as the online service.


Not Gaming:

When you aren't gaming put the "Anti-flood" sliders back to 100% for both the Download & Upload Cap.


Open NAT

Having an Open NAT type is ideal in order to prevent issues with connecting to friends and other players. 

Playstation, in Network Settings look for NAT Type 2. This is Open.

Xbox, in Network Settings look for Open NAT. 

If you don't have an open NAT then follow the instructions below.

  1. Access the NETDUMA Interface

  2. Go to Settings > Miscellaneous

  3. Enable 'UPnP Forwarding'.

  4. Go to Settings > UPnP

  5. Make sure it is enabled and click apply.

  6. Go to Device Manager

  7. Make a note of the number after 'WAN IP'.

  8. Enter your current router's control panel. You should be able to do this by clicking the button in the blue box above 'WAN IP'.

  9. Navigate to there DMZ setting on your router.

  10. Enter the number you made a note of earlier into the other router's DMZ.

Testing the NAT

  1. Make sure that the GeoFilter is disabled.

  2. Switch off the console you are testing the NAT on.

  3. Switch it back on, load up the game.

  4. If you have followed the above steps correctly then you should have an open NAT.

Host Filtering

If you haven't already added a device to the Geo-Filter then follow the interactions below.

On the main menu select:
