turn off geo filter, go into a private lobby and invite your friends. You should still see your friends on the geo filter map so click on 1 of the circles and white list it and then do it to the other circle and you should be good to go in a public match!
When adding my device ( Playstation 4 ) by choosing the Games Console option in the Traffic Prioritization Tab , it gives me xbox as my service but i want playstation network but doesnt give me the option to choose. ☹ Should i keep it enabled even though it says xbox and im on plyststion ?
make a note of your ps4 ipaddrss assinged by the R1. Go to device manager and click EDIT.......you will see a device matching your ps4 saying UNNAMED DEVICE! Click and rename that to ps4 or whatever you wish to identify your console.........then go to geo filtering and in 1 of the tabs at the top of the page select you newly named device from the drop down menu and select the ps4 under the device you renamed it as!
I have a question for you? Are you intending on gaming over a vpn on a console? If so, that is really kind of pointless as console traffic is auto encrypted. Also console gaming over a vpn would apply addition latency as vpn encryts traffic anyway.
as stated in the above comment.............however, the new Nighthawk XR500 has newer hardware and supports 5g wifi. But If you have an old router that has 5g and can put it in AC mode you can connect that to the R1 and have 5g on the r1 and still use it's features. But as stated above the R1 will get new features before it goes on to the nighthawk if Netgear decide to add them......Keeping the R1 is the best option in my opinion at the moment.
If it's FTTC how does that work? Where does the Netduma get it's WAN IP address from?
i am not sure of the specifics but it has to do with talktalk having their own equipment on the BT network in the exchanges and your phone number. If you are with talktalk it is done automatically.........Zennon on here who is a mod is well versed on this but don't know if he will reply to this post!
