    Just wanted to update everyone who haveĀ XR routers, and signed up for the beta.Ā Netgear posted a little while ago, they have selected the first round of testers, and sent email's to them. So if you didn't get a email today, you will have to wait till the next round of invites are sent out.

    This sounds all good in your "own" head. Until there's 100/1000's running a beta build, software bugs appear, with a ton of people complaining about the same bugs. On top of that, you will likely have some taking itĀ to far, and bashing the people who are hard at work on the software for these routers. With a limited number of people to start off, it's easier to communicate between testers, and the dev's working on the software. Without having a few bad apples, being rude about something being bugged, and not working, exactly how they expect it should right now.
    Trust me the people who work on the software, want everything to work great the first time. However that isn't possible 99.9% of the time. So when something is wrong, they want to hear positive feedback. Not unhelpful bashing of something not working properly.

    Hello Ruxomar,
    Trust me I understand some of your frustrations, in regards to netgear, and their past history of slow firmware updates. Which is still something they need to be better at. Also I understand concerns in regard's to security on their routers. As it seems every couple/few months, there's a security exploit found. However Netgear hasn't always been fast to patch the issue.
    As for the Asus routers, and the AX88U overall. Asus does have a history of pushing out updates every couple months. However with their more often updates, they also bring more bugs within their software, to customers. Which luckilyĀ Merlin does a hell of a job fixing some of their messes, and if he can't fix certain things, he tells them about the problems. To be honest.. over the last few month's, a lot of the firmwares they have been releasing, for a lot of their routers, have been pretty buggy,Ā with customers rolling back to older builds.
    Finally there's one part of ASUS software I want to talk about, and for a lot of people who own the R1, or one of the XR routers.Ā It's something they care about, and want to use,Ā that's QoS. ASUS QoS from the outside looks very nice, and it sounds great for gamers, and people who want to use it. The bad part.. their QoS isn't set up well, and if you look at another forum. Where Merlin post his build's and such. You will see a thread about their QoS, and how it doesn't work all that good. There's a 200+ page thread about people wanting improvements on theĀ current QoS, that Asus uses on their routers.
    Ultimately I'm mentioning this, as there isn't one router company, in terms of software, better than the other currently. I have owned many Netgear, and Asus routers, over the last ten years. So the things I'm saying, is from using their products on my home network, over the last several years. Both companies need to do things better, and when I say that.. I'm talking about them working with their customers more, and listening to their feedback,Ā on certain things. Instead of their current yearly push for 3-4 new routers, with all these new shiny features, that either don't work at launch, or are buggy as shit for 6-12 months, after they release.
    Anyways to the mods, and other people reading this thread. I'm sorry for going a bit off topic with my post. However I felt this needed to be said, and I feel I was respectful in what I typed in this post. To end this post of mine,Ā  I look forward to running the newer build, with some of these newer/improved features. I will for sure give feedback on any issues I run into, which hopefully is zero for me. However I know everyone's setups are different. So I'm sure even if it runs great for me, someone else will find a bug, or two. Still that's why it's great netgear/netduma guys are starting out slow, with a beta build first. As you never want to push an official build, without a good amount of testing, with a smaller scale of people.

    In game ping metersĀ addĀ processing delay etc. All games do this,Ā that is why the in game ping is higher.Ā Auto Ping is your direct ping to the server and thisĀ is what you should focus on as itĀ is what you can control.

    The only thing it is likely to do is make loading websites slightly faster, when I say slightly I mean I'd be surprised if you noticed it. It will not make a difference to your gaming performance.

    Alex49H reacted to Netduma Fraser in Lag vs Lag Compensation   
    I don't subscribe to the throttling idea either, my opinion is generally the closest servers to you will provide the best experience - if they are under heavy load then they may not be optimal - especially during times like these, if that happens then I recommend to force servers slightly further away - your ping will be slightly higher but the server may be more stable.

    Yeps. I think in the more recent CoD's, espc. BOps4 and MW, Craptavision have put a little something extra in to prehaps combat those of us who use QoS and have wired connections as we have an 'advantage' over those who play on McD's wifi.
    Having said that, when I was playing BOps 4 on ISP router wifi with no QoS, I had really trash games and really good games so I duno but something is defo different with MW than the old CoD's.

    As above, this will make no difference and if you set it to an incorrect value then it will cause you issues. Most Internet Setup/LAN Settings will not affect your ping.

    If you can recall @DMC_81 did this before and found his sweet spot in his findings. Given the route of traffic and various ISPs each user has.Ā  As @N3CR0 stated, it doesn't seem to work for him. The sweet spot for everyone will be different. What works for you, the better. All that matters is you're having a good gaming session.
