Hey so i currently own both a Netduma R1 and a Xr500, the Netduma so far has done me proud.
I setup my Xr500 and i think i have it setup correctly. (I Think)
All the bandwidth and all that is set to always, 70% for both and so on.
I hop in to a game on Fortnite and it says my ms on fortnite is 50+ but on the Xr500 its 17ms any reasons why?
I have got a few ports forwarded, ive got my xr500 in my BBHH5 DMZ and all so i have a open nat.
But for some reason i never get any wins with my Xr500, but with Netduma i can.

I hop on to Black Ops 3 and its says my ping is 18/19 but in game im literally dieing faster than i ever have.
Shoot first, die first type of thing.
Bullets hit but i feel like i have to shoot 100 More to literally get the kill.
The main reason im posting on here is that im worried that my Xr500 is not setup properly and im not enjoying the feel of my gameplay.
I have also watched Netgears fortnite video but i still feel slugish, as if my bullets are nerf bullets its insane to me.

you say you have your XR500 in your other routers DMZ?...........have you disabled upnp on your other router and also the XR500 if you are using port forwarding, if not then that is more than likely your issue.

Hi Jake,

- Are you playing wired or wirelessly?
- Make sure your Geo-Filter strict mode is enabled
- On QoS, set Anti-Bufferbloat to ‘High Priority Traffic Detected’ mode and 70% is a good starter number so keep that. Make sure the total bandwidth speeds you entered are correct too
- Allocate bandwidth to your gaming devices on Bandwidth Allocation
- Make sure ‘DumaOS Classified Games’ is checked in Traffic Prio

If you’ve done all those things then your gaming connection is as optimised as possible. So I recommend you keep an eye on the pings to the servers. If any are playing especially badly, then use Allow & Deny to block them (ping the server and then click ‘Deny’

I play Wired.
Strict mode is always on.
My Anti bufferbloat is 'Always' but i'll give 'High Priority Traffic Detected' a shot.
I do allocate bandwidth to my console.
I pay for 70/8 but when i use the XR500 i get speed tests of 75/18 and reason why?
Duma Classified Games is always check for my PS4.

Let us know how that goes Jake. Ping is the key to figuring out why you're lagging in-game. You could run a Pingplotter test on a wired PC to get a clear idea of your line quality. Ping spikes etc can really mess up your gameplay, so your line could be a factor as well.
