  1. I get this on my ps 4 pro occasionally when using cat6 cables. Fingers crossed, has always been fixed by removing and reinserting Lan cable. Kudos to Netduma Jack for taking time to research a non-Netduma issue. Destination "go the extra mile" now arrived.
  2. Turn upnp on in the R1 boot up the game go online to the lobby menu. Check network options - is NAT open? If not what is the upnp showing in the R1
  3. Does your console have a static IP address too ( makes life just that little bit easier)
  4. I wouldn't necessarily link poor speeds to NAT issues Have you got upnp turned on ? Are ports opened and pointing to your console (you should see 9308 and 3074) with BO4 running? If no upnp are you port forwarding R1 in the DMZ is a good tip
  5. What is your physical set up? Is the R1 connected to a modern, modem-router combo or behind another router?
  6. BO4 does seem to get confused with its NAT. I sometimes see this and never had it before. Closing and opening BO4 resolves it for me. No need to reboot console or router.
  7. Yes it happens when servers are busy. What are your speeds
  8. Hey Fraser Why does reactive cause packet loss? What is it doing? I had understood preemptive to be the more aggressive algorithm hence the impact on bandwidth
  9. Does your in game console information show a bandwidth much above 4000? For me it usually caps about 4151. Once, with a Netgear R7000 it showed 6171 but never again
  10. It's actually a positive. On blackout they are obviously servers so showing as peers (on original firmware) means a permanent ban rather than just 10mins.
  11. I'm on the PS4. Only playing Blackout so connections must be servers. Locations seem to correspond to ping but they show as peers rather than servers.
  12. ok tah. As of tonight still lots of servers on Blackout showing as P2P. Not sure if they were being picked up in the cloud update
  13. Quite possibly. There are lots at the moment. Compare the ping to what you would expect and it will give you a clue to its real location. We're waiting for a cloud update for the R1
  14. Yep another game update last night Issues still there plus sound issues to. Overall feels worse than launch
  15. Hi I need the original firmware. DUMAOS lacks upnp forwarding which I rely upon hence the need for a cloud update on the original R1
  16. That's a question for your wife's IT department to answer
  17. Yes the original firmware. I do hope the cloud update comes to it. Original firmware beats DUMAOS for my purposes
  18. Hi Went back to original firmware. Now post patch 1.08 and three game updates. Open R1 set geo to cover UK and Europe (2000 miles). Ping assist on 30ms to capture misplaced servers. Boot up game - at least 7 servers are picked up within geo and a couple of ping-assisted in USA. Play a game of Blackout..... Die Leave game Deploy Kicked out "lobby not joinable" No changes made to R1 whilst game running Never had this before on original firmware
  19. Bigger pinch required........ Throttling is nothing new. 1% of his bandwidth is 1mb down and 400kbps up. Per DUMAOS the game uses between 70 and 150kbps on the download and 30-80kbps on the upload so there is plenty of headroom and I don't see this as a lag switch. He also mentions saturation which is counter-intuitive when using an R1. Would think that This will affect his download and impair his game unless the R1 is doing its job of course. Matchmaking is so bizarre compared to other games. I'll be on a UK server at 6ms then a USA (misplaced or very bad) at 250ms. This alone would screw up any underhand strategy.
  20. Hehe. Jokes aside, it's good to see users willing to share their experiences with others to overcome the issues we face every year. BO4 does seem to have come with a "new and improved" version of mucking it up and there aren't any quick fixes. Some recommendations must be taken with a pinch of salt. People rush to make misunderstood changes and complain when the magic doesn't happen. Worse still they can make the problem. Use proven methods where you can, a DNS benchmark will advise your best DNS server (mine had never recommended my router). You don't need to saturate your connection with HD content to play online - unless you are stream sniping YouTube content creators. Accept that B04 and its matchmaking still need much work. Personally I am glad that I play only on console now that aim bot has arrived on PC.
  21. On Blackbout locked to 20HZ for the receive rates so nothing changed. Still around 60HZ on the send rate. Decided to go back to R1 original firmware and had a bit of trouble switching between the two. Hopefully the following may be useful The R1 allows a longer password. Password field in DUMAOS is limited to 16 whereas the repeat field is not. It's a small point because you don't notice the first field stops accepting characters. On DUMAOS you can change all of the LAN address whereas on R1 you can only change field 3 ("88"). When you downgrade you can end up with a DHCP range in a completely different IP range to the gateway and only field 3 access. You end up with more NAT issues than a horses rump. Only way to resolve was several hard resets. Post downgrade I couldn't turn off ipv6 on the WAN. Error message referred to wrong subnet although it was set to in the end it turned out the lease time field wasn't populated.
  22. What settings should I use when I want to throw a tomahawk
