  1. @Netduma AdminThanks for the reply. My Geo Filter has been set for quite some time. Unfortunately, your Deny Servers option does not work currently, (I connect to servers I denied all the time) which Fraser has been tirelessly addressing for almost 3 months. He hopes it will be fixed by the next software update..My ping isn't an issue as it stays very consistent during gameplay (19-22ms) Ping Plotter tests come out fine and consistent as well. The latency I'm experiencing seems to be due to the anti-bufferbloat option as I stated above and others have stated having the same exact issue. I appreciate your help by sending this info, but this Is all the same info I've been using since April/May.

    Large Ping Fluctuations

    @triumph808 I literally have the "exact" same set-up as you. CM1000, Comcast 1GB, (942 Down, 42 Up) XR500. Back around April I was experiencing very high ping flux pretty much everyday. (130--150 ms) I would start out typically around the 19 ms-22 ms, and within an hour or two, it would shoot up like crazy! I used to try everything from changing the settings, to doing a factory reset. (It was such a pain and I was doing this everyday!!) I found out that I had a "faulty XR500" router and sent it back to Amazon and replaced it with a brand new one. Haven't had a ping problem since. I now consistently stay around the 22-27 mark. Also, I live in the Midwest (Indiana) and the servers seem to be pretty trash in that area. I moved my radius to around the Texas Servers and Georgia Servers and I literally wreck shop on Call of Duty. Its almost unfair to the people in the lobby. (Missouri/Illinois Southwest Server is pretty good too) Hope this helps! Kahari

  4. Yes. Ping was the same, Domain name was the same as far as the server goes.
  5. Thanks for the reply Fraser and for the info. I will follow this guide and experiment with these suggestions. However, I would not say its a placebo. Even playing before I wrote this post I was playing with the anti-bufferbloat on..same lobby, same players, same server. No one left and no host migration. There was "drastic" latency and lack of hit detection with the anti-bufferbloat on. I played two matches like that. I disabled it during the intermission, and the improvement was evident. Like I said, I've been doing this for two months. (as a suggestion from Netgear which I forgot to mention in my previous post) Playing at different times of the day and night, and on weekends. I'm willing to post or upload videos as proof if necessary.
  6. Ok, so I've been using the XR500 for about 9 months now. I've experimented with different settings, followed the advice of administrators in the forums, (as well as knowledgeable users in the forum) etc. It has basically been trial and error. Up until 2 months ago, I've always console gamed with my anti-bufferbloat set at the recommended settings. (70% Download, 70% Upload) But what I've noticed with anti-bufferbloat being on with these settings, my gameplay experience was much worse. When I disable the entire QOS, (which says its not recommended) my gameplay experience is almost flawless. I've been experimenting with this over the past 2 months. Even when I play on bad servers that I blocked, with the QOS disabled its still very good. When I connect to good servers that I have my best gameplay experience on, I turn on the Anti-bufferbloat, and my gameplay experience is noticeably worse! Then as soon as I disable it, it's practically flawless.
  7. Should I do a factory reset to see if it changes the issue? I forgot to mention that I didn't perform a factory reset. Just kinda don't want to go through that whole process of setting up my devices, etc again..but if necessary I'll do it.
  8. No fix. Still connecting to denied servers. The only difference I noticed was under the domain name is says “performing action” as if it’s trying to locate the domain name.
  9. With the new update, did it fix the connecting to denied servers issue?
  10. Unfortunately Netduma Jack, this does not seem to be the case. I have denied countless servers, wrote down the ID's, labeled them as bad servers, and yet still connect to them. (Using the advice you just mentioned) I have been working with Netduma Fraser for almost 2 months on this issue as he has been tirelessly working to fix this issue along with other complaints from other users on this same issue.
  11. Thanks I appreciate it! Please keep me posted.
  12. Any update on this or is there a firmware coming soon? I still connect to denied servers (Bad laggy servers) more so than I connect to servers I've allowed. (Great Servers)

    Factory Reset

    Thanks Fraser I appreciate it and your fast responses. Are there any updates on the server issues?

    Factory Reset

    Ok cool. So is there a way I can run another speed test to get an average speed like when you first set up the router?
