First Take on Luma Experience


Recommended Posts

Ok, just double checked. It's "2016.08.29-0". So same as yours. I was out when I posted and couldn't remember the version string I saw this morning.

 

Anyhow, the latency issue happened multiple times on the 8/12 release. Haven't seen it yet on the 8/29 release but it's been less than a day so we will see.

 

Basically I started seeing slowness surfing the Internet. Each time this happened, I set up long running pings against the Luma IPs (192.168.55.1/2/3) and saw ping times anywhere between 100-900+ms. Normally, I have been seeing <10ms. Also I was seeing a dropped packet every 10 packets or so. While this is going on, I test my wired machines inside my DMZ that are not going through the Lumas and they were rock steady <5ms going to the next hop within my service provider. So that clearly showed an issue with the Lumas. If I then reboot the Lumas, everything goes back to normal and I begin seeing the usual 4-10ms ping times. This happened multiple times on the old software.

 

I've been told this new software should correct the issue so I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

Personal Review: Luma 3-Pack White   Sorry, this won't be a crazy technical review. I'm a busy guy. Just wanted to provide my experience after having the Luma system for one day.   My Network  

More Updates   This product definitely looks rushed out the door. I have not had any performance or connection issues yet. Still good in that regard and speeds are fast throughout the house. BUT, af

I read your review on Amazon, You are spot on with it and you did it in a nice way. We can only hope things will get better going forward because god knows its been a rocky start. Only time will tell.

Thanks for the update. I just ran a ping -n 50 from my wireless laptop to Luma and here are my results-

Ping statistics for 192.168.55.1:
    Packets: Sent = 50, Received = 50, Lost = 0 (0% loss),
Approximate round trip times in milli-seconds:
    Minimum = 1ms, Maximum = 10ms, Average = 1ms
 
C:\WINDOWS\system32>
 
It spiked once to 10ms for some reason but other then that it looks pretty good to me. I only have one Luma setup so I can't test the nodes but we already know the nodes will add latency.

Are you right next to the luma? I was testing from 50ft away through two walls and getting the 4-10ms. It's actually more like 4-6ms right now. But regardless, that's good. I am not seeing the 100-900ms since the update. So far so good.

My test is about 25' away threw one thick plaster wall.

I missed the return window because i have been traveling for work, so I will be setting this up sometime this weekend and see how it is. Now with a few firmware releases, what are people's thoughts about this?

I have had a lot of trouble over the past few days.  I can't sustain a live stream, such as a Shoutcast radio stream, for more than a minute or two.  My Tivo app drops connections after just a few minutes even over wifi in the house.  Speed tests are all over the place.  I also use PlayOn to record streams from the internet and netflix and it has been bad.

 

I looked at my switch and something was flooding it with traffic on all switch ports.  I have a 16 port zyxel that my Luma plugs into and several other devices do as well.  I powered off my Luma and the flood stopped.  I rebooted all 3 Lumas and now things seem to be back to normal.  

 

I turned off IGMP snooping a few days ago in order to get my Airprint working, as was mentioned here.  I turned it back on and then rebooted everything. Maybe that has something to do with it.  Outside of that I have not made any changes.

 

I am still optimistic about Luma but this is getting frustratiing.

 

On a positive note, the code update they pushed fixed my 3rd Luma I had trouble with and I haven't seen it drop since.

I had to switch back to my previous firewall and TP Link wireless.  Even hard wired devices could not sustain a large download, video stream, or radio stream like Shoutcast.  I tried different cables, switch ports, settings on the Luma, etc.  I tried downloading some Linux ISO images and at least 3 out of 4 times the downloads would crap out.  I was watching online video and it would die without explanation.  Not just devices connected to Wifi, but devices hard wired to the switch where my first Luma gateway plugs in.  Maybe I'll hold on to them, hoping someone will experience the same issues and they will fix it.  Very disappointing.

Would you mind providing the links to the Linux ISO's you where trying to download and I will test for you?

Also if you would provide the link to the online video I will test that also. How many Luma's do you have and if more then one how are they connected?

How many Luma in your system?

I wonder how that effects the ping test in a mesh system?
