  1. I feel your pain I have Comcast also and play Destiny2 COD. The XR500 has seems to help as far as geo=filtering I still have issues with hit detection etc. Comcast added a drop amplifer and it has helped a bit but still not great . I am using cloudfare but think Comcast has the best ping as far as DNS goes.
  2. I disabled all 5G and am using only the 2.4 since the 5G was proving to be unreliable on my Apple devices. I hard wire to my Xbox and dont use wifi for gaming just FYI.
  3. I unchecked this the first week of owning this router because I was doing some research that suggested to not use this feature. I totally forgot about this until I saw your post good find.
  4. I started with a CM1000 Netgear connected with my xr500 but I was getting constant disconnects and switched cable modems (Arris) and it fixed most of my issues.
  5. Yes go Broadcom chipset stay away from the Intel (Puma) it will cause cause constant disconnects.
  6. With using this method I have not noticed any lag just a ton of campers!
  7. I just jumped on the COD bandwagon from not playing this game in like 7 years I decided to come back. So far it seems for me that ping assist tends to be better than geo-filter.
  8. I have noticed with strict mode party chat is disabled when geo-filter is active. I am guessing this is a result of players being outside the geo-filter radius. I had to disable QOS last night and now my game play is better my hit registration was awful in the new Iron banner (Shadowkeep). I know disabling this is not recommended but I no longer lag so I will keep testing things.
  9. Iron Banner is usually the worse for me for whatever reason. I do find that ghost bullets to be bad probably half of the time in pvp and certain game modes like comp and IB tend to be worse. We are at the misery of Destiny deciding who the host is and its not always in our favor. I hate the fact that I can drop 40 plus kills in one game and the next match I can barley kill anyone and I am doing everything I can.
  10. Destiny is peer to peer and no dedicated servers. I believe that when Geo-filter is enabled it will not go outside of your search area like it would do if geo-filtering is off it will time out and give you a mongoose error. I have been testing after the new firmware patch and switched to strict mode with ping assist. I have been only testing as a solo player and so far after 3 days I have had no disconnects like I did during previous testing.
  11. This was happening to me prior to the update fyi. I found after making the switch from geo-filter to ping assist it would be messed up and look like what u posted. My fix was to reboot devices this would usually solve the ping assist bug.
  12. U have Upnp enabled I am guessing and u see the port mappings? do u have IPv6 disabled?
  13. Is your NTP time setting on the router showing the correct time zone. From the factory settings I was 4 time zones away and this cause me similar issues when playing Destiny but never was certain this was root cause.
  14. This is how mine started out also but the difference was I am on xbox. It was determined it was an issue with instant on mode I had to switch it to power saving mode to make it stable. Yes it sounds crazy but it broken the internet connection to other devices etc. So maybe the PS4 has some similar setting that maybe a bug.
  15. Right now I am having good luck with 25ms ping for Destiny but now that Iron Banner is over I am going to continue with these setting and see how it goes.
