  1. Hey Fraser, I also can confirm this same issue with DNS. Im not on a fritzbox.. R2 is connected to a pure standalone modem. You can not change your DNS at router level.. Once you try to change it to something like1.1.1.1 or other alike it doesnt work.. DNS completely breaks at that point and you cant revert back.. However one can add the DNS at each device and then you can gain internet access again.. If you need other info let me know! Thanks! Zippy..
  2. From the screenshot you posted your showing 37% packet loss.. That would cause buffering.. Not to mention watching videos would likely even stall or stop.. You basically should have zero packet loss... Id try disabling QoS fully.. Then test again to see if you have that type of packet loss.. Try to narrow down where this might be coming from.. Thanks! Zippy.
  3. Do an Ipconfig in your cmd prompt and post your results here.. See what that says.. You should be seeing the gateway of the R2 which is I think your getting close though.. Your on the right track.. Make sure your hardwired to the R2 from a computer.. And then try to access the interface of the R2.. You have to go through the setup wizard in order to get a connection.. Dont try this on wireless.. Zippy.
  4. Hey @slippas It might help if you could take a screenshot of your current setup of the modem and router you got from Spectrum.. That way we can advise more proper and help you get things going in a more less confusing and positive direction.. There is a couple of ways one can hook this up.. I have Spectrum and the R2 will work with it.. Not sure what Spectrum meant by the R2 isnt supported.. Im thinking they meant it isnt supported with your current setup you have maybe.. You could keep your current setup and plug the R2 WAN port into one of your LAN ports on your Spectrum router.. Or you could possibly eliminate your Spectrum router and plug the R2 directly into your cable modem.. This can only be done if you physically have a modem and router that are not together as one unit.. Thus why a screenshot of what you currently have would be nice.. It might also be a good idea to factory reset your R2 by holding a little pin in the hole on the back of the R2.. Hold it for 30 seconds and then release and let the R2 fully boot up! Thanks! Zippy.
  5. Your welcome! Just take your time at it and you should start to feel an improvement when you game.. Zippy.
  6. Do this on just upload.. As from your prior screenshot your download looked pretty good at whatever you had that set at.. So id leave that for now and focus on just your upload.. From my experience one does seem to have to lower the upload slider down more.. So dont worry if you have to lower more then you would think.. Hope that helps! Zippy.
  7. Well it sounds like an issue that Fraser is aware of.. So thats good.. Do you still need help further setting it up? What I would do is start at 70% and lower it from there by 5%-10%.. Test the game you play and see when you start to notice an improvement.. Once you notice an improvement maybe lower your slider another 5% on upload for good measure.. You might have to lower your slider fairly low so dont be alarmed from that.. Hope that makes sense.. Good luck! Zippy.
  8. What happens when you continue to lower your CC/slider down to a lower percentage? Does your upload not improve at all? Its strange when looking at your screenshot because your download is great! Your upload seems to have a continuous pattern of spikes! Zippy.
  9. Hello @Ash What happens when you connect to your ISP router/modem directly.. Does IPV6 work then? Also if you can do an IPV6 test and take a screenshot.. That might help them.. There are a few good IPv6 test sites out there.. One is IPV6 test .com.. Or just type in your browser IPv6 test and a few will pop up to try.. Its good to try a couple to compare results.. Zippy.
  10. Did you ask these players if they were from the USA? I highly doubt they are.. Not impossible but Im a avid Halo5 player and can tell you that playing on EU servers from the US is not at all ideal.. My latency is right around a 100ms.. Not horrible when seeing the distance.. But id much rather play on the server closest to me. Which usually is a ping around 23ms.. The only advantage that a player may have is if they have IPV6 that is fully working correctly.. If you have IPv6 or your ISP supports it try that once.. But make sure you test it fully to ensure your IPV6 is in fact working properly.. There are several IPV6 test sites to help you with that.. One of the easiest tests is by testing your Xbox with IPV6 enabled.. You should receive an Open NAT with no port forwarding no DMZ and no port trigger.. Everything locked down your Xbox should get an Open NAT.. These last few months MS has really started pushing IPV6.. If you dont have IPv6 or your ISP doesnt support it yet then theres not alot one can do.. If you are stuck with just IPV4 then double check to make sure your not stuck on some loop.. To test that do a NAT test and watch on the Geo and see what server pops up.. You should see one pop up in the EU.. Click on it when it pops up on the Geo and make sure its allowed.. Good luck! Zippy.
  11. Hey Majaem! Welcome to the forum! You can have a setup like that.. But if you do set it up like that you wont get the optimal performance out of the QoS of the R2. And that is because the R2 cant control what isnt connected directly to it.. More specific BB control.. Hopefully that makes sense.. One would take and connect the R2s WAN port to one of the LAN ports of the X8.. Once that has been done proceed to the R2 and go through the setup wizard of the R2 and establish a connection.. Once that is done you would take the R2s WAN IP address that is displayed on the main Dashboard of the R2 and add that address into the DMZ feature of the X8.. At that point you should be all good to go.. It also is recommended to set a static reserve for the R2 in the X8.. Just so the R2s WAN address always stays the same.. One side note.. You likely will have to connect a laptop or PC directly to the R2 in order to go through the setup wizard of the R2.. And also to access the R2s UI there after.. I dont think one could be connected to the X8 and log into the Dashboard of the R2.. I personally havent ever tried what your doing to know myself.. This is what your setup would look like.. Modem>X8>R2>Gaming Device.. Good luck! Feel free to post back if you have more questions! Zippy.
  12. Awesome! Please do let us know.. I myself dont have a PS or I would have already done it! Im going to take a guess but I bet PS will show properly.. If I find anyone I also will report here as well.. As id like to get to the bottom of this.. Zippy.
  13. @KindaBusted If you can could you please let us know if you find out if the PS is effected.. That would be great help! Thanks! Zippy.
  14. @Soblex30 Its right above the word Rapp.. Or very close anyways.. It wont appear until you get close to it as its invisible until you hover your mouse/pointer over it.. If you still cant find it let me know and I will take a screenshot for yah! Thanks! Zippy.
  15. Hey Rusty, Ive had this happen to me as well.. I can only share what has worked for me to get the R2 to obtain a WAN address.. What I did was power off just the ISP modem/router and left it unplugged for a couple of minutes.. Then plugged the ISP modem router back in and wait about 5mins to see if then the R2 obtains a WAN address again.. Sometimes I have to do this a few times in order for it to work again.. Its a pretty simple procedure but it can also take a few times to get it to take.. Remember to keep everything connected and just power cycle the ISP modem/router that you have from your ISP.. Leave the R2 powered up and connected to your ISP modem/router during this. Again this my take a few tries.. Hopefully this isnt confusing.. But feel free to give it a go! Good luck! Zippy.
