  1. Thanks Netduma Fraser, now no one in the house is hogging the bandwidth when I'm playing. 👍 PS, I know that you Fraser and the Netduma team is getting a lot of negativity from the crowd lately but please remember that you guys rock!
  2. I just bought it and got it set up and so far it got me just the one SSID which I really wanted and it's good, does the Nighthawk X6 AC2200 makes it so the XR500 control the IPs of all my devices and so all features can be used effectively?
  3. Hey Netduma Fraser, after a lot of trials, I gave up on this endeavor and now I'm just looking for a AI Mesh from netgear and I found this, NETGEAR Nighthawk X6 AC2200 Tri-Band Wi-Fi Mesh Extender (X7700-100CNS), my question is that can this make it so i just have one SSID?, and by the way is this a mesh or extender? I'm getting mixed reviews on this product, I just want one SSID in the house which is my goal and like you said control the IPs of all my devices and so all features can be used effectively, any recommendations are welcome!, thank you in advance!
  4. Thank you for the suggestions!, a friend of mine actually owns the same router I have, the XR500, and he bought a D-Link Covr AC2200 Tri-Band Whole-Home Mesh Wi-Fi System to extend his wifi range for his place, I was thinking of doing the same to my place with my asus routers and they are mesh compatible but somehow they are to cumbersome to set up. So I was wondering what does the primary node do like the D-Link Covr to somehow make this work so I can apply the same settings to my primary Asus mesh router, I do noticed that the D-Link Covr have a different SSID, I appreciate any suggestions in advance!
  5. Hello friends, I would like to seek for an advice on how to set up some of my asus routers to form a mesh wifi, essentially I want the XR500 to be my main router because it is far superior than the Asus routers I currently have and then use the Asus RT-AC86U as the secondary router, by doing this I can use the RT-AC86U as a primary mesh router and use the other asus routers as an extending wifi mesh nodes, There no problem setting the mesh nodes but I am currently having problems as to how to set up the RT-AC86U as the secondary router, any help would be appreciated!
  6. Yes it's good that it's fixed, i only downgraded to .40 because i cannot access the dashboard when i need to change some settings and some Xr500 users apparently have brought this to dev's attention, i'm not really following the threads so i was wondering if this was fixed?, thanks again!.
  7. Thank you for the recommendation Bert, i will be experimenting base on your suggestion!
  8. As per Netduma Fraser's instruction, i have re downloaded and updated my Xr500 to the latest version, it seems like that did the trick somehow, everything was working good like before i downgraded to firmware .40, does this mean i cannot downgrade firmware anymore?, and also why did the Xr500 behaved like that? i would like to know for future reference, Thank you for the help.
  9. My PS4 is old and do not have 5g option, i would really like to have a wired connection but it will be a long cable going to my room so i gave up on that option as well, i thought that putting the PS4 on Qos Traffic prioritization will only confuse the router, i read it somewhere in the forums threads here and if so can somebody give some insight in this, thank you for your suggestions Bert.
  10. Thanks Netduma Fraser, i will be doing that once i get back home, i will be linking a video for now so you can see the rubber banding issue i'm having. Physical set up, Modem: Hitron model: CGNM-2250 > XR500 > via WiFi 2.4g PS4
  11. Having issues with my xr500, updated to the latest firmware .56 but i had problems signing in the router so i downgraded to .40 and did a factory reset, and now i'm rubber banding on call of duty, i'm sure its the xr500 because when i swapped to my asus router im not experiencing the issue. Im not sure what to do anymore so i would appreciate it if someone can help me with this dilemma. Settings; Xr500 firmware V2.3.2.40 Isp speed - 75 down, 7.5 up Qos Abb - 70% both Geo filter radius 1,000 Ping assist - 50 Location - Calgary, AB, Canada
  12. Thank you for the cloud update on servers, now l don't have to use ping assist to get to my nearest server, using just the filter mode will do the job, l do really appreciate all the effort netduma team! 👍
  13. Hello netduma team, if it's no trouble then can you please check this server location, l believe it's the seattle server because l did a couple experiment using just the geo-filter w/o the ping assist and it always brings me to this server which l will provide with a picture below, it gets me in to this server but of course l get kicked out because it's not in my radius so the router is doing it's job properly but maybe the server location is wrong, it makes me think that is to why l am getting the 'lobby not joinable' error, thank you in advance!
  14. Yes sir!, l am indeed!, my xr500 rocks!, YouTube video link below.
  15. Hey Fraser, l just posted that information for Jack, everything is working for me now with ping assist, thank you for the advice and reply.
