Cloud update has just been released for the XR500 so you can flush the cloud to get that updated. Then the new firmware will be later this month I believe, we're trying to identify the fix for a disconnect issue some people have been having so I think that is why it has been slightly delayed. Also the VPN Hybrid is undergoing testing now.
I experienced a disconnection on the LAN ports of the XR500 today. I do have a Xbox One on the network. I will make sure that it is not in instant-on mode. I have had the XR500 since launch and this is first time this has happened. My son is home from college and brought his Xbox One into the network recently. From what I am reading, this may explain the disconnects. If there is a XR500 firmware that fixes this issue, I would like to have it.
Okay interesting, so you've never had the issue until an Xbox was apart of your network? As above I can provide you with the debug firmware, its not necessarily a fix though that does seem to be the case for Fathomless. It will however allow you to collect the necessary debugging information should it happen again. Would you like the debug firmware?
Update I have been given a new firmware to see if it fixes the issue. If anyone wants it please let me know as I am unsure of who may still be encountering the issue. Dilly Dilly I have PM'd you this.
For north east servers the one thats close to ny never picks up for me. Always wants to put me in the worst one which is in ohio it seems like. Never picks up the other server.
When I tested it without filtering I was put on them both about 50% each so just make sure filter covers Virgina, excluding Ohio and you should be set.
Can we perma ban the irish server on the R1 instead of temp ban ?
The next XR500 firmware will allow permanent blocking of dedicated servers so when DumaOS is out for the R1 you'll also get that functionality.
Any updates for FIFA?
Not specifically, if they use any AWS or Azure servers then yes. Now we've proved the concept of massive server changes with this cloud we should be able to do the same for other servers like EA if we can find similar information that AWS and Azure provide.
no veo eso
You won't see the service on the R1. Only for the XR500. Cloud update for the R1 will automatically apply in 24-48 hours from the time of this topic.
How to check if this function works? I checked today on R1 in Fortnite (XBOX ONE) and does not show me a server in Germany. The game wants to connect me with servers in the USA even though I live in Poland. Do I do something wrong or not have the cloud updated yet?
Cloud update for the R1 will automatically apply in 24-48 hours from the time of this topic.
The cloud database has now been updated, it optimises Fortnite, PUBG and other games. Games that will be most affected will be those using AWS or Azure dedicated servers. They should now all correctly be identified as a dedicated server as well as all appear in the correct location.
You will now be able to Filter within the region for both Fortnite and PUBG. The game will attempt to load you into the server if its outside your radius so wait then re-search and game should be within your radius.Alternatively you can use Spectating Mode / Full radius to see where the server is located and if you don't like it, back out of the lobby and search again.
HOW TO APPLY
The changes will auto install onto the R1 in 24-48 hours. There is no way to accelerate this. To filter these games, add your PC or console to the Geo-Filter and select either the Xbox Live or PlayStation service (choose either one if you are playing on PC) . Make sure Bleeding Edge is selected in Settings > Miscellaneous. After 24 hours of the update being completed on all routers if everything is working correctly we will move this to Auto Cloud.
For XR500 please click Flush Cloud in the options on the Geo-Filter Map and it will automatically download the latest cloud. Then go to a different R-App and then back to the Geo-Filter. Then add your PC or console to the top of the Geo-Filter. If you are playing on PC, choose the Unreal Engine service. Consoles should automatically choose the right service.
Here is a video of the Cloud update in action on Fortnite:
Just to update you. I noticed several days ago that "instant on" was enabled on my xb1x (i thought it was disabled), I disabled it and rebooted router and I have not had a connection drop for a few days now where as it was happening almost daily. I will do wireshark and debug firmware if it appensa again but it is already well past the timeline for disconnecting itself and dropping connections.
Hi all, I think the testing has ceased now. We've verified that it works and will likely put out a cloud update (which you don't need to do anything in order to receive). We'll let you know should we require more testers.
