I was kind of weary and doubtful and I didn't think it would make that much of a difference, but ohh boy.. It does!!! I would still get good games with the Netgear CM700 I had it for about a year and this was my usual report.
Texas, Spectrum (TWC) Internet: 100 Up / 12 Down
Netduma Wifi is disabled. I have my Netgear Nighthawk R7000 in AP Mode from the Netduma for the 2GHz and 5GHz wifi.
Netduma R1 w/ Netgear CM 700
Netduma Settings: Antiflood 70/70, Upload Prioritisation 20% going to PS4, Hyper Traffic on, Ping Assist 0, Strict mode on, Distance at 1076km or 670miles
Ping: 40-50ms during gaming (Fluctuates during different times of the day)
DSLR Reports: Overall B, Bufferbloat A, Quality B.
Netduma R1 w/ TP-Link TC 7610
Netduma Settings: Same as above
Ping: 10-15ms during gaming (Fluctuates during different times of the day)
DSLR Reports: Overall A+, Bufferbloat A+, Quality A+.
I tested this for over a week, and the ping and DSLR Reports have been consistent with the data.
Just wanted to share my thoughts on how by just switching out a modem, made COD WW2 and BO3 that much more enjoyable. I do recommend and think its worth the $45.00, but if your set up is working for you and you beasting, don't fix whats not broken. lol..
Later Duma Family.
