Hi 

 

So my brother & I both use our consoles (ps4) simultaneously. He plays SFV and I play R6 Siege; every time we do so one of us lags and the other has decent ping (in siege I get around 20-30 ping [there are ping spikes that make it difficult to play]) I understand SFV uses P2P, but it's also noticeable when streaming video. The quality goes down briefly, but then goes back up and this happens many times. 

 

Just wondering what could I possibly do to get far more consistency with the connection. 

 

The anti-buffer is at 65/65

both our consoles are prioritized

geo-filter is set to spectate for him and filter for myself

UPnP is on

Static ips

etc...

 

Perhaps it's something else.

 

Anyway thanks!

Hi, welcome to the forum!

 

Your settings seem great - if you've got an open NAT even better. What rang alarm bells for me is that you say you've got ping spikes - those are usually indicative of issues on your line / upstream equipment. That could be the best place to start improving your connection.

 

I'd recommend running a Pingplotter test (with and without the XR500 connected). That'll give you a clear indication of how bad your ping spikes / jitter is, and any other problems on your line. It could lead to you getting a new modem which can often fix these issues, or new Ethernet cables etc. I'd recommend posting the results here so we can break them down and give you advice! Thanks.

Thanks for the hasty reply! 

 

So I ran the pingplotter test with different targets, this was with the XR500 connected. Each test was about ~10 min.

 

I did check the upstream levels for my modem just to make sure and it was at optimal levels. Not too sure what to make of it. Though I do run only 150mb DL and considering how many devices I have it could very well be that, but again not too positive on that,

Could you prioritise just one console instead of both and see if it improves. Thanks
