  1. PS4 and older controllers will only work on PS4 games and PS5 controllers are required for PS5 games. If you are playing Modern Warfare (PS4 game) on the PS5, you can use a PS5 or PS4 controller. If you are playing Cold War (PS5 game), you have to use a PS5 controller. The PS5 games are designed to take advantage of the PS5 exclusive features (i.e. new haptic feedback and adaptive triggers). https://blog.playstation.com/2020/08/03/playstation-5-answering-your-questions-on-compatible-ps4-peripherals-accessories/
  2. Any further status on a DHCP fix for the XR700?
  3. Thank you. I would be happy to simply have the current version with the DHCP issues fixed.
  4. It was a simple typo, and I have edited my post to correct. The issue is not about the version number, but simply fixing serious issues.
  5. Sorry, that was a typo. I am using version 1.0
  6. Fraser, that is not a good response and completely insulting to your customers including me. Many of us have been anxiously waiting for 3.0 because Netgear and Netduma chose to work on 3.0 instead of fixing serious issues within 1.0. It is true that we did not pay for 3.0, but we also didn't pay to have constant DHCP issues on the Netduma software that constantly interrupts my kids zoom meetings and my business meetings. We also aren't getting refunds when we have to buy another router to use until the software issues are resolved.
  7. I have Spectrum cable and internet. I went from CM600 to CM1200 because of the DOCSIS 3.1 features. I got big lag spikes, increased ping and it seem more unstable. I used ping plotter for weeks working with Spectrum to compared results from CM600 to CM1200. One of the techs told me off the record that a lot people were having problems with the DOCSIS 3.1 modems. Spectrum officially stated that the problems were associated with the modem or network congestion due to Covid 19. After a couple of months, I just went back to the CM600. I am curious to see how this modem performs for you.
  8. My wife and I both work from home. When the internet is down, we use hot spots on our phone.
  9. It happens to me when I am using various methods to connect to the network (i.e. hard wired vs wifi on the laptop). If you reboot the router, it should go away.
  10. Please provide details on your ISP and setup. I have Spectrum cable internet. There have been tons of issues since the stay-at-home orders. I run ping plotter on a random basis to monitor my connection. It has been 4 times as bad since the Coronavirus. At times, I cannot even get the full bandwidth during speed tests. I spent a lot of time trying to troubleshoot my network. I then contacted Spectrum because the problem seemed to be outside my house. Spectrum acknowledged that my neighborhood network is over tasked. They are installing some upgrades on the infrastructure to help. You could be experiencing similar issues with your ISP.
  11. Are you referring to a static IP on your network or static IP from your ISP? As stated about static IP from the ISP could present problems. For your network, normally a static IP address would not be needed. In my case, I have problems with DHCP lease renewals causing issues, so I reserved or static IP helps fix the issue.
  12. For your console, the quality of the connection is usually way more important than the bandwidth. Many games don't really use much bandwidth. I would recommend using the cat 5 cable.
  13. I have the same combination. The sx10 will only prioritize the hardwired devices plugged into the sx10. In my situation, I cannot practically wire my ps4 directly to the xr700, so I have to use a switch. I have a lot of hard wired devices. I bought the sx10 because I want it to prioritize the gaming port ahead of all other devices (many used for streaming video) on the switch. If you can plug your gaming console/pc directly into the xr700, you don't need a sx10. You could use a good quality switch for your other devices.
  14. I have Spectrum (previous Time Warner) cable internet with 350M down and 24M up. I have been using a Netgear CM600 (DOCSIS 3.0) modem since 2016. I purchased the Netgear CM1200 (DOCSIS 3.1) modem for two reasons - 1) I wanted to reduce latency with the active queue management (AQM) which is part DOCSIS 3.1 and 2) my neighborhood is slated for internet upgrades (i.e. giga speeds) in the near future.
