    UK_Wildcats_Fans got a reaction from BERNARDINO DE AGUAS in Server Connection   
    I live in San Diego, California.  While COD gaming,  I typically see a ~15mS ping to LA servers ot ~25 to northern CA.   I sometimes play with friends on the east coast (geo filter off)  with typically 50-75mS pings.   Recently, I have been playing COD BO4 (f'ing Modern Warfare) solo with a small geo filter to avoid a bad Nevada server and ping assist at 30mS.  This typically would let me play on some good servers in Texas or mid country.  With a ping assist of 30mS, I should never get an east coast server.  I have been getting these very weird, very intermittent games lately and noted that I am getting an east coast server with about 17mS ping.  This does not seem possible.  I did a lookup of the server and it belongs to Total Server Solutions LLC out of Atlanta, GA.   When I ran ping plotter, I was getting 10-50mS pings.  
    See the attached screen shots of geo filter and ping plotter.  Is it really possible to go 2100 miles (~3300 km) with a 10mS minimum ping?
    FYI- I have blocked the server now, because it was too intermittent.

    I had similar issues with my xr700. If you look at System Information then Logs, you may get more information on what is happening. For me, I was seeing a lot of lease issues that correlated to the slow downs. I setup reserved ip addresses for just my critical devices (i.e. Ps4, work laptop, gaming  laptop, cell phone).  This resolved my issues.  As others have stated, I should not have to do this. I believe this is more of a Netgear issue.

    I appreciate the more transparent side of things here now, Fraser. I still think your devs have patching backwards, I know of no other company that releases new operating systems without patches for their software in between major releases. Its just seems to me a retrograde way of doing things. Apple have just released macOS Catalina and its buggy, now imagine if no point releases came until next year with macOS 10.16 Users would go mad and Apple would never sell another computer probably, same for iOS, Android, Windows, Linux etc.  That is just not how you do things in my view and no matter what the new version hopes and expectations are it will have bugs, you cant make bug free software, its impossible.

     I'm just hoping DumaOS 4.0 or another incarnation of DumaOS wont be the fix for DumaOS 3.0's bugs.  Until I can see a point release path rather than 8-12 month gaps between updates to fix issues with DumaOS software pushed to Netgear hardware, I've had to remove the XR500 as my daily driver for now and box it up. I'm aware this may not be all your fault believe me, and I know you guys work really hard and I will continue to help where I can, but the XR development cycle in my view is unacceptable as it stands. I look forward though to seeing what your plans are with DumaOS nevertheless. Right time for more more coffee

    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.

    UK_Wildcats_Fans got a reaction from Netduma Alex in Ping Assist   
    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.

    I have the XR700 with the last firmware and playing BO4.  Once you lose host connection or simply get into a lobby, the entire graph  and history is gone.  I wish it would keep the historical information and simply show a sign of no host found.  This would allow me to see what was happening before host was lost or get into the lobby.  It would also be nice to have the option to have a long chart time frame.

    UK_Wildcats_Fans got a reaction from Netduma Alex in Reserved IP List Export and Import   
    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

    dBm is power ratio to 1 milliwatt.  The higher number presents better signal strenth.

    I have seen the same thing on Android.  Software Developers create their own ROM and share it out of goodwill.  They then have to spend lots of their own time helping others and getting negative responses forcing many to stop sharing.

    I usually get dedicated servers, but I have been getting more p2p lately.  I believe that it has to do with the number of people playing the specific game modes.  For example, I tend to get dedicated severs  on the more popular games modes core modes and hardcore TDM.  When I try hardcore domination or kill confirmed, I often get a p2p.

    This same exact thing happened to the entire iOS jailbreaking community and now what do we have? Everyone quit, works for Apple or other tech companies... And jailbreak exploits are being sold to Apple in a bug bounty program because people are more inclined to report the bug to Apple and collect their money rather than release a jailbreak for billions of people to use and complain about like whiny kids.

    I always have a house full and lots of devices that keep getting added.  I try to keep it cleaned up but I typically have about 50 to 100 devices listed on the network.   After several parties and guests during the holidays, I had about 350 devices showing in device manager.  It would be awesome if I could manually assign them categories and then apply priority to the categories.
     
    For example, I would create groups such as Gaming [PS4, PS3], Security [home security devices], Terry's (me) [laptops, phone, tablet], House [devices for my kids] and Guests/Others [everything else including misc devices such as thermostat].  I would then be able to get higher priorities and bandwidths for each of the categories.
