    Still running debugging firmware, with good results: Uptime: 26 days, 21:23, load average: 4.36, 4.26, 4.21
    let me know if you want me to test beta firmware.

    I have owned both the CM 1000 and Arris 8200 and for me not having gigabit services it was overkill for me.  I was hoping they would have an advantage over the other 3.0 routers with new built-in features.  In my case they were more unreliable than the 3.0 versions.  So right now I have the Netgear CM600 and its very stable and I don't see any errors in the logs like I saw with the Arris 8200 plus it ran hot and used a pc fan to keep it cool.

    I do not use any attenuation, did not want to reduce downstream signal. The difference in signal is significant 3dbmv.
     
    also +1 on heat dispersion  Sb8200 runs significantly hotter compare to CM1000, heat is a problem particular when dust starts building up in a year or two, it will work like insulator, overheating the components...potentially.
     
    I see why you can select sb8200 or mb8600 though all 3 modems have the same chip set. SB8200/mb8600/CM1000, the difference comes down in number of ports, memory and storage.
    I think by the time people will start to use more then 1port, there will be better technology new modems most likely, even if you do not use memory it will still consumes power, so more not always better.

    CM1000 is good choice, it provides good reliable connection, if your area supports docsis 3.1, go with it. Tested it with 150mbps and now upgraded to 1gbps.(when i had sb8200 and 1gbps it was disconnecting twice a day)
    CM1000 is superior to SB8200  and MB8600 why?
    - they fixed the bug with random disconnect, when arris sbb8200 has low upstream signal - bellow 36dbmv - it will disconnect randomly.
    - customer support for CM1000 exist, where with SB8200 does not, you will be running around and listening automated manual, Motorola does not work with customers very well, Motorola MB8600 is out due to customer support issue.(Arris operated by Motorola)

    Fathomless got a reaction from xlr8r in QOS Active and Lag is terrible   
    It is difficult task to manipulate latencies, any ideas are welcome. Frequently one idea can start another, and simple solutions could be found.
    So do not stop
     
    I observed one thing yesterday... maybe it will help you for the latency hunt. 
    Yesterday I had effective speed of 180down and 6up. My wife started upload by pushing 1.6GB file, so up link was saturated for a while.
    While it was saturated I decided to play COD, my upload anti-buffer-bloat setting were 96% of 6mps. So while playing for 30 min WWII, I call paratroopers 4 times, 2 times in one game.
     
    So you can, see if saturation of the link one direction or another impacting your performance, positive or negative.
     
    Today my speed is 965Mps down and 42Mps up, will compare results with yesterdays gameplay later today; xbox consumes less then 1Mps up/down in my case.
    I noticed that dsreports are not indicative of XBOX game play, when I reduced throughput to 1.8mbs down and 0.1mps up my ds report buffer-bloat was at C, but in game play KD was 2+, anything above 2 is ok for me

    So today, I increased speed with provider to 1gbps down and 40up, router is still running without reboot. Router runs debugging firmware. Will see how this router will perform under high load.
     
    I am noticing that traffic management is very officiant with this router, and maybe COD really likes saturation of uplink.

    Well, as mention in another thread, I cannot fail with debugging firmware, it is very stable now at least for me, the problem with software management and it needs some adjustments. The usage of switch just to confirm that problem has the same pattern. by the way the switch is very small and flat in size, and two of them can be used as stand for the XR500  
     
    but on positive side my K/D in COD went from 1.29 to 1.41 just while I was testing and that is across 30000 kills average, geo location feature is working well for me.

    i do not know if you can link it to Netgear problem.
     
    I think Corp VPN should bypass private ip range at least it works for me like that.
    you mentioned that IP works, i would guess if you try nslookup you are not be able to resolve routerlogin.net.
    that cold be because VPNs like ip vanish would probably use another interface and your DNS response might not come from the router.
     
    if that is the case you could try hosts or even lmhosts files just to modify name to IP mapping. This would be static mapping it will take priority for name resolution, and fastest DSN server
     
    location of the hosts and lmhoshosts:  C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc, i think you have to rename lmhosts.sam to lmhosts (used for netbios name if you want shorten the name you could use name "R" with ip 192.168.1.1)

    you can do trace by IP and by dns name. or maybe manual ping plotter where you ping neixt hope, and see what broke in this situation you will not pass second hope.
    memory dump would be useful as well.

    I perfected my WWII (Pc) gaming experience by using both a VPN and the XR500 Geo location system.
     
    I use IPVanish VPN, connected to Nottingham servers. (I live in Northern Ireland UK)
     
    I have my Geo location set to Mid-Europe and the circle set to just almost touch the English channel. (Thus excluding the entire UK!!)
     
    This gives me a perfect ping around 35-40ms (this ping will give you best hit-rate in game) on European servers & P2P hosts.
     
    I now have great game-play with this setting. 
     
    Bare in mind, this is only for WWII and you should play around with your own settings for different games.

    Guys, are you going to install debugging firmware, I might need help to repro this issue. There is no impact to gaming performance nor I do not see difference in memory consumption and CPU usage, throughputs are the same, but the bad thing is I cannot repro the issue. .

    good/bad news: did not have a repro, yet.
     
    I set Anti-Bufferbloat to always, where old setting was: When High Priority Traffic Detected. ....just to increase processing load on OS.
    current bandwidth utilization is set to: 34%down and 90%up translates to 61mbps and 5.4mbps respectively, if it does not fail i will increase it to 90%/90%, and do different speed tests while playing xbox, and after.
     
    I shifted connection of the access point to the XR500 this morning as well, so we will monitor failures via access point; switch GS105 does nothing, but contributes to port power load on XR500.
     
    in table bellow please notice 10M/Full that is xbox in hibernation, what xbox/xr500 do they resets connection, the same thing happen when xbox was connected to GS105 switch, that is not good behavior by xboxone.
    xbox connection reset happens every 1-2 mins, at times cycle look like: 10/full, Link Down, 1000/Full, 10/full. When XR500 would fail indicator is on 1000/full when it suppose to be 10/full.

    Mine has been stable for almost a week now with no disconnects while playing Xbox.  Many of my disconnects were actually happening while playing Xbox and while in idle mode it seemed totally random. My wired ports and wifi have been stable.  As I have mentioned before the frequency of the DHCP lease requests in the logs were always preceding a failed event so I was trying many things to determine what could be causing this.  After reading many Netgear forums about various issues with previous Nighhawk routers I found a bunch of different things to try to see if it would solve this issue.  Making these changes could be just a placebo effect that I may be stepping around a bug in the Netgear hardware or I have suppressed it with my combination of changes I made.  Changes below.
     
    Removed Arris 8200 and replacing it with a Netgear CM600 in my case Docsis 3.1 was overkill for me. This change made the frequency of dropouts lessen.
     
    Unchecked "Smart Connect" in WIFI
     
    Disabled 5GHz
     
    Xbox enabled Instant-On  (For me this seems to make the Xbox disconnects go away I know this is opposite of what Xbox says to do but I read on the forums that previous Nighhawks were fixed by enabling this)
     
    NTP time zone would not set to the correct time zone even after multiple reboots and after a factory reset.  I went to the content filtering section and manually set my time zone.   This was my last change and I think this may have been the issue.  It seems the DHCP request frequency has dropped off since setting the correct time zone has been set.
