  1. So I get 20-25 ms ping to server but my in game says 40-45 ms... great gameplay. I gotta try it out. how far are you from the actual server?
  2. I will have to try, I also have Comcast. 600down/15-18up. I've got right now traffic prio set manuel rules source 3074:9308 dest 30000:45000. seemed to work last night. We'll see today. And yes, I loathe Comcast!!
  3. Not trying to blame anything, but I'll put 5 bullets into someone center mass and BO4 registers 2. I just figure that's the internet problem I deal with
  4. I'll try when I get home. At work now. Slow day. LOL..
  5. @blackfirehawk Hey so how do I find out which source port my console uses?? On PS4.
  6. @Kendal My pingplotter totally skips a "hop". For example if it has 10 hops, hop 1-5 I can see, skip hop 6, then I can see hops 7-10. Would this be a problem with the line? Or is that normal? Doesn't seem like it to me...
  7. Ping in-game fluctuates from 38-42-ish ms on East Coast servers, LA is like 102, Chicago is 50-60ms in-game. Netduma on East coast showing 19-20 ping in NJ for example, while BO4 network in-game stating the above 30-42ms.
  8. Hey so my base ping is 14-15 not bad. Something has got to be majorly wrong. It's PISSING ME OFF!!!!! I spend nearly $200/month for internet plus the equipment I've bought just to feel like every game I play I'm behind. I've done everything the admins have said to do, port fwd, 70/70 abb, traffic priority, geo-filter with servers on the East coast New Jersey and Atlanta, Chicago, Texas, and all the way across the freaking country in LA and Seattle. Still feel like I'm at a disadvantage. I truly and sincerely dont care if I die or have a bad game but I've literally spent the better part of three days (10+ hours/day, not lying) this week trying to fix this connection issue I'm having because I'm tired of seeing on this forum videos of others with better connections (great from them) stating how great the XR500 w Duma OS is. I cant be the only person here from the East Coast in the USA. It would be nice if people would share what works geographically, someone in the UK has no clue how to fix my connection, and visa versa. But if person A and person B live in the same region, chances are they connect to the same dedi's maybe have the same ISP. Get some similarities going with regions and ISPs create a thread on here of just ISP's and different settings users have found that works. For the betterment of the community. I just want to break something right now. I feel like Fred Durst.
  9. How do I use wireshark? I've got a laptop not a PC... HELP??
  10. Also, I forgot to ask, when we make a change to router settings, do we always have to reboot the router for settings to take effect???
  11. It's a cable line, not fiber... and yes I've used that site before. PS4 is set to automatic..
  12. Playing BO4. So I've spent about 20 hours the last 3 days, "tweaking" my XR500 for my PS4. Still about .5 second behind the action. Hit detection seems decent but I get melted in half a second, and my bullets sometimes seem to not register as fast as other players. My speeds are approx. 600mb+ down/15-18mb up. I've read the topics from Ghost and others regarding Traffic Prioritizing, and Hit Detection. Some things I want to ask and also confirm. I think I've got top of the line equipment, and fast internet it's just frustrating!! 1. There was mention in the Traffic Prioritizing topic of a 5-digit "port" number that my PS4 uses and to prioritize that. Where can I find that?? Is it the 5-digit number in upper right corner of network settings? 2. I've been told based on my speeds that ABB may not do much for me. I was told by an admin that I can do 70% slider on upload speeds. However, when I changed my upload slider, it automatically lowers my download speed even with the download slider set to 100%. 3. I have Comcast cable (ugh) on Ping Plotter my line fluctuates about 5 ms up/down every few seconds. Don't know if that could be a reason. 4. I have put in Traffic Priority ports 9308 and 3074 which are the two ports that show up on UPnP. I've also put ports 30000-45000 in there. Anyone have additional ports on PS4 that they've had success with. 5. I don't have a PC, I only have a laptop. Is there anything I can do to diagnose my connection or show the ports I'm using in game? If so, how would I do this? I'm grasping at straws here... (I've put about $1k in equipment between modem/router/monitor) There's a lot of you here that are smarter then me when it comes to this stuff, looking for any help. My Equipment: Netgear CM-1000 modem XR500 Router PS4 PRO Asus 1 ms monitor 60hz refresh rate CAT 6 cable running to modem ---> XR500 ---> PS4.
  13. Yeah, Comcast and stupid Cable connection. The upload speed is ridiculous.
  14. My interest speed is with Comcast. I do a speed test using Speedtest.com, on my XR500. My speeds are coming back at 600-700 down/15-18 up. Great. I have about 20 devices at the house, but not all devices are using bandwidth at once. Maybe at any given time 6-7. I've heard that QOS/Anti-bufferbloat wont help someone like me whose bandwidth isn't capping, I've got more than I need technically. Am I correct in my assumption?

  16. Playing PS3 BO2, the device manager shows the PlayStation as OFFLINE. It's hardwired with an Ethernet CAT-6 cable to the XR500. Also in addition, the geo-filter shows absolutely NOTHING besides my home location when I go to search for a game. I've got the PlayStation added as a device but as far as I know it's not working. I paid $300, for the software and it's not working. I had the R1 and it worked fine, but crapped out so I went out and got the XR500. I've heard downgrading an update could help? If so, how do you do that? Can anyone help???? Much appreciated.
  17. Anyone know why this is happening??? Should be get my ISP out here....? Thanks.
  18. So I just purchased the XR500 two weeks ago. I previously had the R1, and figured I'd upgrade hardware, anyways, I've got a PS3 playing BO2 and went to do a speed test on speedtest.net, connected to a laptop windows 10 with a CAT 6 Ethernet cable. The speed test readings seem to be weird at best.... I'd get a 15 to 20 ms ping. For example: My speeds are 120mb down / 5mb up through Comcast at 100% anti-bufferbloat. If I decrease only the upload bar say to 90% and leave download alone and do a speed test, BOTH down and up load speeds decrease versus only the upload. I would assume I'd be getting approx. 120mb down and 4.5 up. Also I'd do a dslreports test to test for bufferbloat. My bufferbloat NO LIE at 70% sliders down and up, its between 500-1000ms..if not more sometimes. Getting C and D grades. Is this the router??? I've talked to Comcast and they say the line is fine. Funny thing is I ran the same tests on my PS4 and it worked fine with the R1. (I don't have it any longer) Any help or thoughts as to what's going on?
  19. Well good news, the tech came out today and replaced both lines in the cable connection to the central service and to my house. He said that both lines were bent and weathered. It plays 100x better so far.....
  20. I feel like I'll never get the great connections you see some people have nearly every game, even people that have the netduma. Beginning to believe that the only thing that has any bearing is how close a person lives to a particular dedi server. I'm in VA smack in the middle of two servers. Have a 13ms ping on internet diagnostics, but a 20-30 ms ping to NJ or GA. There is always going to be someone closer to the server and regardless of what I have my CC set at (bc well we never max out our bandwidth here at home), most of the time, 4 out of 5, I'll lose that gun fight. And if the servers are crap, then why doesn't it effect everyone. I'm left wondering if I lived closer maybe I'd go 40-2, or 30-0 with a nuke, or V2, or whatever the current COD streak is. Sadly, probably wont happen because I'd run into the guy with the lower ping. I play to have fun but I'm competitive have always been growing up, but find myself pissed off because I pay $120/month for internet, plus the money for the game, $200 for the router and $50 for a new modem because the last one had the PUMA 6 chip in it, all in the name of tried to give me a fair shot. Only to realize after HOURS and HOURS of playing that in the end a 2 ms ping will beat a 15ms ping every time, and there's nothing I can do to even the field. Kinda feeling like I've wasted money. Cant be the only person who's thought this before..... OK rant over. I feel a little bit better now.
