  1. In the setup wizard of the R2 when you go into the WAN setting tab does it have anything there where you could disable IPV6 during the setup process? If so id try that then see if that gets you anywhere.. If you rather wait for a response from Netduma I totally understand.. Im just trying to think of things to try in the meantime until they respond for you.. I feel you are close to getting a connection.. Unless the unit is in fact bad or faulty.. What brand of router did you have before the R2? you could always use that and then plug the r2 in your existing router to see if any headway could be made that way as well.. Thanks! Zippy.
  2. Your welcome! Wish I could have been of more help! If your able to access the R2 main UI it might also help to disable all of IPV6 on both LAN and WAN in the Network Settings of the R2.. Some times IPV6 makes it hard to complete a full connection.. If your stuck in the setup wizard you should be able to skip ahead so you can get into the main dashboard of the R2.. Otherwise you can wait for a reply back from Netduma! Good luck my friend! Zippy.
  3. If the speeds went back up then I would say your QoS quit working on the second test.. Which would make sense by your explanation.. Are you able to lower your ping both up and down on the under load test? And if so do your results stay consistent over a few tests? Thanks! Zippy.
  4. Hummm that is very strange.. Its possible you could have a bad unit.. I will tag @Netduma Fraser and @Netduma Liam here for yah so they can further investigate this issue.. Sorry couldnt have been of more help! Thanks! Zippy..
  5. Are you using your laptop through wifi to set it up? If possible can you use a device to where you can hardwire to the R2 and try going through the setup wizard of the R2.. If possible? I have the same provider as you and usually just power cycling the modem did the trick for me before.. If you can go hard wired you should be able to change the wifi password yourself at that point.. And make a connection.. You may need to wait for further advice from Netduma on other things to try.. I can only share what has worked for me in the past.. Thanks! Zippy.
  6. Thanks for the added info and screenshot.. What I would try in your case when you come to the part in the setup wizard of the R2 and it says it could not detect your connection.. At that point just power cycle your modem.. Let it boot back up and then click the retry button on detecting a connection.. It should establish a connection then.. It might take a few tries to get it to finally connect.. But be patient when doing so.. Give that a try and see how you get on! Good luck! Zippy..
  7. If you are talking about the speed section of Connection Benchmark I dont believe it will show your throttled speed.. The underload section though one should see the upload and download graph closer to the idle.. In terms of ping.. Hopefully that makes sense.. Thanks! Zippy.
  8. If you have Charter Spectrum do you have a pure cable modem or do you have a combo unit modem/router in one? It might also help if you could give the model number of your modem as well.. It will help them help you. Thanks! Zippy.
  9. What I would try in your situation is power cycle just your cable modem.. See if the R2 establishes a connection then.. If it still doesnt make a connection go into your network settings of the R2 and disable IPV6 for both LAN and WAN.. Then proceed to try my method above.. You should be able to get a connection then.. Good luck! Zippy.
  10. I personally would just connect your R2 to your existing modem/router you currently have.. That imo would be the simplest way without alot of hassle.. As far as a moca adaptor ive never heard of that used before on fiber.. But then again im not at all familiar with Verizon fios.. If you hookup your R2 to your existing modem/router then I wouldnt even think you would need a moca adaptor.. Do you actually have fiber coming into your home or do you have coax/copper cable coming into your home? Thanks! Zippy.
  11. If you are still able to access the interface of the R2 then in your case I would just power cycle your modem and see if your connection will restore itself.. See if that works.. Good luck! Zippy..
  12. It sounds like one of your issues is your XR500 is suffering a DHCP issue during a release and renew of devices.. But putting a router in AP is just using it in a totally different manner then a router.. Its not really ignoring the issues.. Even though I do understand your frustrations and disappointments with the XR500.. To me your basically are looking for a WiFi6 router.. Which really at this point leaves you with one option.. Netgear XR1000.. It is a new router so dont be surprised if you do run across some issues along the way if you purchase such a router.. But really its up to you on purchasing such a router and take a chance.. If it was me Id make sure I could return it for a full refund if I did get one.. Some places have a 30 day return policy.. But with in a week or just over a week I would know for sure if it was up to my standards.. As far as a R3 release with WiFi6 that would be a question for Netduma for sure.. I personally cant see that happening any time real soon.. Good luck on your decision! Zippy.
  13. The R2s wifi is always improving.. But if it was me id put your XR500 in AP mode then run that to the R2.. Or even do that with your current R1! I wasnt around to know what the R1 did.. But wish I had.. I came aboard when I purchased the XR500.. And the XR500 has been one interesting ride for sure.. I see no reason to not purchase the R2.. But if you rely on wifi heavily then I would use the XR500 in AP mode then tie that to the R2.. You should get good solid coverage with that setup! I personally would buy an R2.. for a couple of reasons.. One its all of Netdumas work of art! Two when it comes to firmware updates I feel it will get attention much faster then the Netgear line of routers.. Much quicker turn around with that.. And ive always like to support Netduma by buying there very own products.. I honestly was even thinking about buying an old R1 just to get an idea of how it is.. Even in the current day! I have nothing against Netgear.. But if you feel the need for the XR1000 im sure it would serve you well.. After my experience with the XR500 id have a hard time to purchase another.. Would I love to see Netduma build a massive hardware spec and wfi router like no one has ever seen before and call it the BEAST! Yes I would! And I mean insanely over the top hardware. The kind that would make many scratch there head and say holy mosses!! 😲 One thing that we can all agree on is you cant beat Netdumas support.. I mean nowadays you just dont see that kind of support from any one or company! Good luck with whatever router you purchase! Zippy.
  14. I totally understand.. Thanks for the extra info on your flower.. I noticed your screenshots as well.. Thanks for posting your screenshots of that as well.. It helps to trouble shoot things easier..I seen your screenshot of your connection both when a big download is taking place and when not.. To me it sounds like you have everything setup correctly.. Hopefully Netduma can see whats the cause.. I myself am confused as to why this is happening.. I will follow this.. Im always very curious to understand things like this.. Imo your connection should remain stable even with bigger downloads going on.. Hope this gets sorted. If I think of anything else I will post. Zippy.
  15. This is very strange.. Your connection shouldnt do that when your brother is downloading.. Your basically getting leftover crumbs.. Even though gaming takes very little bandwidth your connection going crazy like that I could see why you would begin to lag out.. Your connection should remain stable or somewhat stable even with your brother downloading something big.. Thats basically the whole point of QoS.. Keeping your connection stable while getting the most out of your connection.. Have you messed around with your distribution flower at all? If you have id reset it.. Keep everything even.. Thanks! Zippy.
  16. @Jakerod12 When your brother is downloading something heavy/big are you saying that then you receive full bandwidth on the device your on while this big download your brother is doing at the time? Just want to make sure im understanding this correctly.. Thanks! Zippy.
  17. You wont have to worry about purchasing a new modem anytime soon.. Spectrum has no real push to rush into DOCSIS 4.0 The SB8200 is a good modem and has come along way since its beta.. The SB was one of the fist beta modems to run DOCSIS 3.1.. I really cant say enough good things about it.. Zippy.
  18. I have to say that is strange indeed.. Are you using the Geo Filter with Destiny2? If you are then try putting it to Spectating mode once.. I think this will have to be something for Netduma to troubleshoot.. It almost sounds like there is a server being blocked in order to play.. Or something for sure is being blocked.. Zippy.
  19. Thats awesome glad to hear that! The SB8200 is a good performer.. The two modems I think that are the best imo is the SB8200 and the MB8600.. You cant go wrong with either of those on Spectrum.. Just wait to DOCSIS 4.0 comes out! I think that will be the biggest improvement one could ask for in a gamer.. Zippy.
  20. If you were able to go through the setup wizard of the R2 then you should of made a connection.. So did you go through the setup wizard of the R2? If you come to the part where it says cant detect your connection power cycle just your new modem then let the modem fully boot back up and then click retry to detect your connection.. That should get you connected.. Give that ago and see how you get on.. If you need further help post back. Welcome to the forum btw.. Zippy.
  21. @Schwaaby03 both of those modems are good imo.. I think the Arris your talking about though is the SB8200..Not the 2800.. Most seem to purchase the Motorola MB8600.. It does run cooler.. Both have good chipsets.. No puma6 in those.. If your purchasing your own modem the key is to make sure your up to date on the modems firmware.. Not sure who your ISP is but in my situation when one buys there own modem it becomes the owners responsibility to update the firmware of the modem.. Not sure if that will be the case for you or not but figured id mention it.. Good luck! Zippy.
  22. Your welcome @Netduma Liam! Wish it would have worked for him.. This one is very strange and doesn't make sense.. I think some screenshots are needed as well to make sure nothing is being missed.. It wouldnt hurt to have a screenshot as well of his Advance Network settings on his Xbox if possible.. The only other thing is if he is using the Geo Filter.. Could be blocking a server possibly.. Zippy.
  23. Op the first thing I would do in this situation is to check what port your Xbox is using.. Go into your Xbox and then to Network Settings.. Then go to Advance Settings.. On the very bottom of the Advance Settings will be what port your Xbox is using.. Usually its 3074.. But sometimes it can change if you have had a power outage or something out of the ordinary happens.. Id delete all your current port forwarding rules you have and start from scratch.. And make only a port forwarding rule just for the port your Xbox shows in the Advance Settings of the Xbox.. As an example lets say your Xbox port is still 3074.. Heres how I would set up the rule bellow.. Source Port..3074 Destination. 3544 Source Port. 3544 Destination. 3074 That would be for both TCP and UDP.. Even though UDP usually just works by itself.. Try that combination above and dont forget to double check what port your Xbox is actually using.. I noticed in your AT&T gateway that in the service tab it has 3544.. Which is why I suggest trying the port arrangement above.. 3544 is used in this situation when one usually has only IPV4.. Hopefully this gets you an Open NAT. Good luck! Zippy..
  24. Id say this.. Years ago we always strived to have an Open Nat.. But even now im finding myself having better game play with Moderate or even Strict NAT type.. Why is this happening?? Honestly I have no idea why this is.. Its a mystery to me.. Because years ago if one didnt have an open NAT one would get just wrecked in a game.. Now today its just the other way around it seems.. I would do what gives you your best gaming experience.. Thats my current conclusion.. Even though it doesnt make sense..lol.. Zippy..
  25. That server in Virginia could be an authenticating server.. Which means you might see that pop up when playing a game.. But yet still connecting to servers in your area.. Just a possible guess.. Zippy.
