    Proper Bandwidth detection.

    I have AT&T fiber and have the same issue with the XR500's speed test failing. However, I have the Netgear Nighthawk App on my iPhone which can run a speedtest and it works.
  2. No, not aware of any guidance my company gives out. I've never had this problem with previous routers. Yes, UPNP is enabled.
  3. Rebooting the router doesn't fix it. Additionally, I noticed that when I switched from my modem back to the router, my company's VPN was able to reconnect from the quick/temporary disconnection. However, when I logged out of VPN and tried to log back in, it wouldn't work. So something about the initial login to my company's VPN that the router seems to be blocking.
  4. I just connected my laptop to my modem directly, bypassing the router. Everything appeared to work just fine. I was able to connect to my company's VPN and didn't see any Skype disconnects.
  5. On my work laptop, I use Skype for Business. The last couple days, I've been having very frequent disconnects with Skype. It will sign me out and then sign me back in, every couples minutes. I'm also having issues with connecting to my company's VPN, where it won't connect at all. I reached out to my company's IT support and they had me try to connect using my mobile hotspot, instead of wifi, and everything worked just fine. So they told me it's not an issue with the applications, but an issue with the my internet router. I haven't changed any of my settings for the XR500 over the last couple days. Is there anything with the router that could be causing these issues?

    ERROR - The lobby is not joinable

    It gives me the error in the title of this thread. So, Search for game Server outside of range is queued and rejected "Error - the lobby is not joinable", BO4 boots me back to main menu Go back into multiplayer Rinse and repeat steps 1 through 4 about 10 times Finally might get a server inside range. I've had to just turn the Geo-Filter off.

    ERROR - The lobby is not joinable

    I have several servers within range. Some are property marked as servers, while other are not. The game still frequently tries to put me on servers (or servers marked as peers) outside my range.

    That may be relevant for the R1 but I don't believe ping assist has been added to DumaOS yet.

    ERROR - The lobby is not joinable

    It's a constant issue. Doesn't matter if you make changes or not. For me, BO4 on PS4 will frequently try to connect me to dedicated servers that are outside my Geo-Filter. I live in Atlanta, GA and I believe there is a dedicated server in Atlanta, GA (same as CoD WW2). I can set my Geo-Filter much wider than I did with CoD WW2 but it will still avoid the Atlanta dedicated server (unlike WW2). However, the Atlanta server appears as a peer in the Geo-Filter so not sure if this contributes to the issue. The dedicated servers it tries to connect me to are all over the place (IIRC Kansas, Illinois, I think New Jersey, and Utah.)

    Best Mesh Extender Add-On for the XR500

    I do have fiber internet with AT&T, but it wouldn't exceed 866Mbps on wifi. I've actually been having trouble getting my download speed to be anywhere near where it's supposed to be. On a wired connection, I'm only getting 500Mbps at the most. So I would think the 866Mbps bands should be enough for me? I did end up going with a X4S. By the time my internet would exceed 866Mbps, we'll probably have 5G anyway.

    Best Mesh Extender Add-On for the XR500

    Did you see any performance difference between the EX7500 and EX7700? They appear to have the same speeds. I found the EX7500 on eBay new for $105. I don't need the ethernet ports.

    Best Mesh Extender Add-On for the XR500

    Thanks. Looks like the EX7700 is newer and is supposed to be the mid-tier option between the EX8000 and EX7500. But the EX7700 is the cheapest at $150. I'll look into the EX7700 a little more but looks like it would be more than powerful enough for me.
  13. Looking to add a mesh extender onto my XR500 for more coverage in a somewhat larger home. Seems the Netgear X6S (EX8000) is the best option. Anyone have any other thoughts or opinions? There's also the EX7500, but it's the same price as the EX8000, $180, on Amazon.
  14. Not to hijack the thread, but is the X6S the consensus best option for a mesh extender to add on to the XR500?
