  1. Hi, I've been loading games on my Xbox console and trying to analyze the behavior of the GeoFilter. I set the map at 2.5x to see a full view of the world. I set a wide radius of about 1545 miles. I also set it to enforce my radius. I loaded up popular (based on amount of players) games like CoD, Fortnite, Apex, Battlefield 5, PUB G, Overwatch, Rainbow Six and Forza. I loaded non popular games such as Ghost Recon, Fallout 76, and Halo 5. I notice that games like CoD and Battlefield almost immediately populate the map with servers and peers all over the world but games that are open world maps like Ghost Recon and Fallout 76 would take a minute or two to populate with only servers within my radius. Some games showed me as connected to a Microsoft server. Games like Rainbow, Overwatch, Ghost Recon andApex would almost never show Peers as opposed to CoD. I even tried using the Rainbow Profile for the GeoFilter but it only seems to alter the size of my radius. Is it because of the way their servers is set up? Has anyone else had similar or better experience?
  2. Kool..and advice taken; will post on netgear forums. Thanks, Fraser!
  3. I've been using the XR700 with my GS110TP ProSafe Switch (which has served me for years with no issues) connected via LAG. I have an External USB hdd connected to the XR700. I'm thinking of prepping my network for 10G by replacing the GS110TP with the GS110EMX or the MS510TX as well as purchasing a 10G Nic card by Aqtion for my gaming PC. My questions; 1. Can I use both the LAG and the SFP+ at the same time to effectively produce 12GB of data throughput - I mean; will 1Gb ports see a bump in communicating speed 'theoretically' with router or usb storage? 2. Would it be more beneficial to use the SFP+ connection to my modem (standard 1Gb port) as opposed to a switch on the LAN with a SFP+ or multi-gig port supporting 10G...I don't know if I should keep the existing LAG setup and connect the router to the modem via SFP+ OR connect the SFP+ to the LAN and keep the LAG setup as well.
  4. Wanted to add another question to this topic; I noticed as well; some of my friends and some servers have a dotted circle around them (as opposed to the full circle noted in the Geo-Filter Icon Legend), Any explanation on that??
  5. Right, that's my conclusion but thought I'd ask as it was driving me nuts! lol
  6. I have the Geo Filter set in Strict Mode with Auto Ping Host unchecked. When my friends join me in a game online on Xbox, I can click their respective Peer icons but some that I click will keep 'looping' and not ever populate the Ping info box. Is this because they are behind a firewall of some sort? They are within my range (which I have set at 600 miles).
  7. I have the Steelseries Artic 9x. Pro didn't have Bluetooth and I need to know when I have phone calls and be able to take em quickly while I game. I've been thru Tutrlebeach 800x - broke and replaced 2x with warranty. Astro A50 Gen 3. - bad wifi interference and no bluetooth, gave em to my son. Tutrlebeach 700 - worst sounding headsets EVER. Plantronics RIG 800x - love em but no bluetooth so when Artic 9x came out I gave em to my son who now prefers these to the Astro A50s due to wifi interference.
  8. Sorry if this is the wrong thread for this topic... I recall reading something about theme support and an App Store coming for the DumaOS Netgear devices. Any word of an ETA?
  9. Hi. I'm kinda new here and proud owner of the XR700. IDK if this was ever touched on; I game online on Xbox. My son also games on his xbox and switch and PC. When we are both gaming (different games, etc.) there's really no way to tell on the Geo-Filter, which device is connected to which host, etc. My solution: Have the Geo-Filter Legend Icons colorized by device. Ex. Device 1= Blue, Device 2 = Orange That way it would be possible to tell what device is connected to what server/peer when the map populates. Thanks!
