  1. l think i found a solution Fraser, l did a firmware update on the R2 with the current firmware and did a factory reset, so far everything is good after 2 days of doing this, perhaps a buggy firmware version of 3.0.123 is loaded on my R2 unit?
  2. Just rebooted and tested it's working then log out, after 5 - 10 minutes log in then the issue is back, but the rest of the tabs is loading just fine.
  3. I have the same issue but when i reboot the router it works fine but after sometime it's the same problem again, there's something wrong with the Ping Heatmap.
  4. I would say that geo fencing alone convinced me to buy the r2
  5. 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!
  6. 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?
  7. 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!
  8. 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!
  9. 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!
  10. 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!.
  11. Thank you for the recommendation Bert, i will be experimenting base on your suggestion!
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. 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
  15. 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
  16. 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! 👍
  17. 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!
  18. Yes sir!, l am indeed!, my xr500 rocks!, YouTube video link below.
  19. 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.
  20. And when l search for a game without ping assist, it is either takes a very long time to search for a lobby or get the 'lobby not joinable' error.
  21. Hey jack, l have tried looking for a game without ping assist and l have the pictures for you below, just note that l can find games now with ping assist thanks to you and the netduma team, this is just for information that you seek and maybe we can make it work with ping assist.
  22. Thank you for the reply Fraser, l will leave my settings here just for future reference. Settings; xr500 firmware V2.3.2.40 isp speed- 75 down, 7.5 up qos anti-bufferbloat- always 70% on both geo-filter- on playstation 4, radius 1000 kms location- calgary, alberta, canada ping assist- 50
  23. Hey Jack good news, after l have downloaded the new update for black ops 4 l tried looking for a game with filter mode on and it seems that everything is ok now, things to note though that when the game first came out everything was working fine until treyarch patched something and everything went bad. I believe that netduma users that was suffering from "lobby not joinable" error should be fine now like I am, thank you for the support netduma team, l believe we are in good hands in your watch.
