I just wanted to know if my setup and settings for my connection are optimal combining Fiber ONT alcatel lucent G-240w-B and Netgear XR500.
first of all, my XR500 is one of those versions that have incorrect Ethernet port order on the device front, is that a big issue?
now my setup is the following : ONT( 200/80 down/up mbps) > XR500 > PS4 pro and Xbox One X, both hardwired.
my ONT has its DHCP, WIFi, firewall all OFF. and all ports 1-65535 forwarded toward my XR500 static IP. I don't use the DMZ of my ONT, because from my old experience of my PS4 connected directly to the ONT on DMZ... the PS4 lagging like hell and I am getting instant deaths as much as I can remember in Call of duty games. So, I forward all the ports and disable ONT firewall instead.
on the XR500, I set anti-bufferbloat to 70/70. DumaOS classified games ticked, the bandwidth sharing is equal between all devices with share excess ticked.
on WAN settings, NAT filtering secured. UPnP is on by default. no port forwarding, No DMZ to the consoles.
now, my big issue is the MTU!
the ONT is on PPPoE connection, thus its MTU is 1492. however, the XR500 has the default MTU of 1500, should I modify it also to 1492 ?
is my setup optimum ?
thank you very much in advance.
