  1. Thank you for your response. All these years with the R1 and now XR700, I never really played with ping assist. I either used geo filter with ping assist at 0 or geo filter disabled. Just another case of user error and forgetting things in my older age.
  2. I thought strict mode would only keep the servers within the radius regardless of ping assist. I have factory reset my router, and have not allowed any servers. The only two servers on my Allow / Denny list are the blocked ones that you see in the image. Yes, it is a solid circle around the server in the 2nd image.
  3. @DMC_81Thank you for the response. You probably win the award for the longest post on the forum. LOL. Here are some images to help show. See the attached images. I originally had my geo filter set to include western USA. See image #3. This normally worked. If the Texas servers were an issue, I reduced the radius to exclude Texas. I then started having peer server issues from Nevada. See image #1. You can see that I have been blocked them. I then went to a small circle in the ocean and using ping assist at 25mS. See image #2. As you can see from the image it was connecting to a Texas server with a 48mS ping. I tried to capture the image as soon as COD BO4 connected to the server.
  4. Fast Search is off. Because of the initial problems, I have been watching the host ping when I first start games. From what it displays on the screen, the host ping starts above the 30mS limit. Most of the time, the connections are in Texas. I have been gaming with the COD servers for years, and typically Texas connections are around 40mS . I would not expect that connection to be lower than 30mS. For that reason, I changed my ping assist to 25mS and 20mS for different tests. It still allowed me to connect to servers with higher pings. In one instance, it connected me to a New York server, which was about 70mS.
  5. To clarify, I am trying to find out why the ping assist is not working. It happens a lot if I play less populated game modes. Typically the BO4 in game ping value is about 15mS above the Netduma host ping. When I connect to servers outside the ping assist value, the BO4 in game ping is consistent with the 15mS above. Even if I quickly connected to the server, why would it not kick me after it realized the ping especially since I was not connected for 2 minutes.
  6. I am in San Diego, California. When I use Geo Filter, I normally set my radius with strict mode enabled for known good server areas that usually give a ping less than 30mS. Recently, I started noticing a few servers (peer servers?) that have been popping up in this radius with pings of 75 to 100 mS. I tried blocking them , bu they keep popping up. Therefore, I set my geo location into the ocean (west of San Deigo) with a tiny circle and use my ping assist set to 30mS. With this setup I would still get servers that were 40 to 70mS. Why does this happen? FYI - Fast Search is disabled. EDIT - I was playing COD BO4.
  7. FYI - Using MAC address lookup from the web, the "switch" is associated with an Alpha Networks, Inc. product.
  8. As a standard practice, I am do a factory reset after each upgrade. Manually configuring the settings again is not too time consuming with the EXCEPTION of the reserved IP addresses. I would love the option to export the reserved IP settings (or whole LAN settings) and then import them once configured. This would save a lot of time
  9. When you respond, can you also find out the maximum number of reserved IP addresses?
  10. I have the XR700 and my girlfriend and I both work from home. We occasionally get internet lag and issues. I use WebEx alot and notice it more during conference calls when connected using my laptop headset. I found that there was always a DHCP renewal happening. My lease time is set to the default 24 hours. The DHCP is renewing at random frequencies of once per minute to once per hour. Based upon recommendations from Netgear community, I have set my DHCP to .100 to .200. I am also assigning reserved IP addresses on the router for most of the more critical devices (computers, phones, tablets, TV, PS4, etc.). Of course, I am leaving the devices as DCHP (not static). After making these changes, it seems to have help but now my device list is all messed it. In some cases it shows multiple IP addresses for a single device and many are listed twice (one with name and other as unnamed). 1. DHCP range is set to .100 to .200. Is there a problem with assigning the reserved IP address from .2 to .99? 2. What is the maximum number of reserved IP addresses that the software will allow? 3. Is there a way to clear out the entire device list? or do I have to just turn off WIFI and ensure all devices are disconnected to delete them one at a time? 4. If I do clear out the entire device list, will it mess up the reserved IPs or cause other problems?
  11. I am running the latest firmware for the XR700. I have noticed that the time in the system logs are 1 hour behind. Is there a way to adjust the time?
  12. Yes, that is another good option in addition to my suggestion.
