    AzeRuS94 reacted to Netduma Fraser in POOR XR500 WIFI RANGE   
    Firstly have you arranged the antennas so they're optimally positioned to point to all areas of the home?
    Are you using smart connect? If so disable that and use the 2.4 & 5GHz separately, 2.4GHz should have deep penetration of walls and should get you more range.

    What are the QoS settings you're using? If you disable QoS completely in Anti-Bufferbloat options do you get higher speeds?

    Did you change any of the wifi settings like WMM or turn on HT160 by any chance? I tend to find leaving 2.4ghz on automatic actually works best for me the router is good at finding the least congestied channel on its own. Maybe try turning off beamforming, HT160 (default is off) and MU-MIMO to see if that helps.As to aerial configuration it varies but not by much, I found 25 degress for the two side antenna and vertical for the center ones gave me the best performance. Experiment with aerial positioning but don't stick the side antenna at 45 degrees that's way to much. Imagine a doughnut from the tip of each aerial, that's how the signal is transmitted, also make sure the router is set up in a high position and away from walls or metal objects and points of electrical interference. My XR500 picks tansmits 2.4Ghz halfway down my road so I had to dial back the TX rate. 5ghz covers my entire bungalow quite happily and thats the least powerful signal. Also if you had a firmware update at set up maybe a factory reset would have been advisable before setting the router up, oddly enough that can help as Netgear routers can be very quirky as hell after a firmware update. :)

    You mentioned an extender, are you still using this ?
    double check you have connected the aerials correctly, they are labelled for each slot. No idea what happens if they are connected to the wrong slots to be honest.
    I had to move my router to a central location to gain the best Wi-Fi, like you my old setup was one end of the house. I’ve also added an extender to reach outside and to be honest my old Apple TC had about the same Wi-Fi coverage. 
    I use an app called Wi-fi SweetSpots and worked out where I was struggling but moving the router central has helped greatly.

    You should turn both 2.4 and 5GHz off. WLAN basically means WiFi, so you should turn that off.
    Put the ISP router into bridge mode if you can. If not, put your XR500 into the DMZ of your ISP router.
    To do this, go to the System Information section of the XR500, write down the WAN IP, and put this WAN IP into the DMZ settings on your ISP router.

    Well the XR500 has better WiFi Speeds, MU-MIMO, a better CPU... Also the XR300 isn't compatible with Hybrid-VPN.

    AzeRuS94 reacted to Netduma Admin in Apex Legends is now Geo-Filter Compatible!   
    New Cloud update is out with more accurate server location for Apex. Please click Flush Cloud to install this new database. Reminder on how to do this:
    Go to the Geo-Filter In the Geo-Filter Map options, click Flush Cloud - wait about 45 seconds for this to complete. If you own a Netduma R1, a message will probably appear that says "The operation is taking longer than expected. Please briefly wait before using this R-App." Don't worry if you see this, just click OK and wait a further 15 seconds. The new Cloud will have installed in the background Before you boot up the game, we recommend you set your Geo-Filter range around your favourite server region for Apex. If you want to be stricter, you can just put the range around one server, but this will result in more games being blocked.
    Then boot up the game - the Geo-Filter will both encourage the game to give you a server within your range and if the game gives you one outside of it, the server will be blocked.
    One final point - in testing we sometimes would not be able to join the pre-game lobby after completing a game. If this happens to you, please restart the game.
    Please let us know how you get on with this latest upgrade.

    That definitely sounds like a false reading then, what's the current setup you're using for that NAT status?

    I meant whether you were using DMZ, UPnP etc. 
    NAT is not really checked on PC like it is on consoles so it's up to the game whether it shows you this information. If you have trouble connecting to people when playing (and Geo-Filter is disabled or friends have been allowed) then make sure UPnP is used or you've port forwarded for the game. I would do advise DMZ for PCs at all.

    I don't see how it couldn't be open when using DMZ so definitely a false reading.
    It's really up to you, the XR500 has the more powerful hardware but they do both have good wifi and will handle your connection.

    Have you reset the router since the technician changed things? I reckon you should run a hard reset:
    Turn off any connected devices, then turn off the modem and Netduma. Wait 5 minutes then turn on the modem. Wait 2 minutes then turn on the Netduma. Finally wait 2 minutes and reconnect your devices.
    After that step, factory reset the Netduma. Then do the DMZ and enable UPnP, ensuring it's turned off on the Modem. Is your in-game NAT still moderate?
    If it is but it's open on the console, I'd say it's a false reading and nothing to worry about.

    Fantastic to hear that! Yes the R1 can handle that. You're right on the cusp of having to disable all QoS to achieve it though. I assume you would like to keep the QoS features so make sure you enter your new bandwidth into the router and see if you get full speeds without enabling Anti-Bufferbloat. If you do then great! If not see how much less you get and see if you think it's worth it or not to disable QoS completely to get your full bandwidth.

    Turn off UPnP and Port Forwarding on the huawei, if that doesn't work then the DMZ details you entered must be incorrect or the details have changed so double check that, have you rebooted the modem/router since enabling it?

    The TP Link needs to be connected to the powerline via the WAN port. Devices only appear online if data is flowing through it, if you do something on the device it should go to online. Yes normal to be able to access R1 interface through TP link.

    Are you not able to move the console/router momentarily just to check if that's the cause? Perhaps when not many people are using the internet?
    Could you provide screenshots of all your settings pages as well please?

    Yes leave UPnP enabled and remove any port forwarding you have done and disable Geo-Filter. If that's not fixed it then plug the R1 directly into the ISP router and try again, it could be the powerline adapter causing issues.

    You put in the WAN IP from System Information on the R1? 
    Can you provide a screenshot for the page please? It is probably IP or MAC address you can do it by so if you did both it might have gotten confused.
