  1. I think you might be right. In this screenshot, I’m playing a game of MW Dom. The Auto Ping R-App shows me as being connected to a Peer host on the southern coast of England with a player icon, but the Domain Name is 95-179-205-28.choopa.net. Choopa.net servers are dedicated servers, aren’t they? For reference, this server ID was 2e5f511cfccdaeb3
  2. For reference, I just tried the above and there seems to be no difference at all. Screenshot 1 below is during the ‘Connecting to Online Services’ screen and Screenshot 2 is during a game of MW Domination with a full 12 players. It appears to only show the server I was connected to. Maybe Achilles will have a different result?
  3. Same here. It's not a 'mis-located' server issue, it's a 'can't-see-the-other-player-icons' issue. I play GTA V and it shows where maybe 95% of the player locations are, but in MW probably the same amount of player icons are missing.
  4. Hello, I have the same issues as Achilles. Is there any word on when this cloud update might go live? As a secondary question, are cloud updates available on all devices (XR500/700, R1 etc.) at the same time or are they released separately Thank you.
  5. Hi Netduma Fraser, Thanks for your reply. If I have issues again, I'll follow your suggestions and post back to this thread.
  6. Hi Netduma Fraser, Thanks for your reply. I do not use an ISP-provided modem. It’s a NETGEAR DM200 modem. Its logs seem to hold no information which might be of help. It only has two lines of text: [admin login] from source [Initialized, firmware version: V1.0.0.61] The modem is in ‘Modem Only’ mode as opposed to the default ‘Modem + Router’ mode. Just to clarify, even though the DM200 is branded as a modem, it does have router features, too, but I have turned those off because as you know the XR500 provides router functionality. Do you think it’s possible the DSL connection might have a bearing on the problem? If I remove the WAN ethernet cable from the XR500 router, I can still log into the router GUI – I couldn’t earlier when I thought the router had crashed. For your information, my ISP is British Telecom and the line is VDSL. All the way back to ADSL and even 56K dial-up (eek) in the early 00’s, I can’t recall ever having any noteworthy problems with my internet – it’s always been pretty much rock solid. I’ve had the router just over a month now and this is the first time it’s ever seemed to have crashed, so it might just be a random glitch. I’ll post back to this thread if I have any crashing issues in the future but if you have any further suggestions in the meantime, please let me know.
  7. Hello, I came home from work today to find I couldn't log onto my PlayStation 4. On checking my mobile phone, it had connected to the XR500 Wi-Fi (and periodically kept on doing so) but it seemed there was no internet, so it kept switching back to cellular data for an internet connection. I thought I’d try the router GUI to see what was wrong in the logs, but entering the IP of the router came back with a blank Chrome page as though the router was not connected at all. I restarted the router only - not the modem - and all was good again. This is fine when I’m at home and I can sort things out, but I have services which I remotely access when I’m away from home so this has flagged up a potential issue for me. Once the router had rebooted, the GUI was accessible again. I checked the logs but they only seemed to go back to when I had just logged into the router to find out what the problem was! To sum up: • The PS4 had no wired internet connectivity. • The router was transmitting a Wi-Fi signal but (I assume) no internet. • The logs did not go back as far as when the issue might have occurred. • The power LED on the router was a solid white, as though all was fine. Are random freezes of this router a commonly reported issue? Is there an extended log somewhere that might shed light on why my router appeared to have froze up, which I could access? Thank you.
  8. Hello, I have set up the Hybrid VPN via the Advanced tab and it works fine [free Proton VPN account]. Is there a way to edit the existing configuration file? At the moment, I'm having to edit in Notepad++ and paste a new configuration when I want to change things and re enter Username & Password. I just get blank fields when I go back to VPN SETUP >> Advanced. Thank you.
  9. Hello, Just a quickie... If I 'allow' a dedicated server within my home radius and then later reduce the radius so the server becomes outside the radius, is it still allowed or does the radius then determine if it is allowed? I know allowed friends outside the radius are allowed, but are allowed dedicated servers when they are outside the radius? Thank you.
  10. Yes, I'll stick with the current firmware. Hope it can be ironed out in a later release. Thanks again 😀
  11. Hi Netduma Fraser, Thanks for your reply. To my knowledge, none of the devices connected to the X4S bridge have ever shown as being online within the Device Manager. This is despite those devices being pingable and their web GUI’s being accessible through the XR500. If I reboot the XR500 router the devices connected to the X4S still appear offline. Because I have quite a few devices connected to my router, I have the XR500 assign static IP’s to most of them so I can keep track of things. For example, I have the XR500 assign a static IP of to my Desktop-Server PC’s MAC address which is connected to the X4S bridge. The XR500 successfully assigns the static IP to this PC, and the PC is fully accessible via Remote Desktop. Basically, everything works perfectly but the XR500 fails to display the correct online status of devices connected to the bridge, even though those devices have been successfully issued with static IP’s, and those devices being accessible through the router.
  12. Hello, I love the Device Manager on XR500 but I have a couple of issues with it – nothing major, just minor irritations. Q1. In my XR500 Device Manager, I have: Router >> WAN >> Modem Surely this should be: Router >> Modem >> WAN? Am I missing something obvious here, or is this an error? Q2. I have a Nighthawk X4S D7800 router configured as a wireless bridge in the spare bedroom. The connection to the bridge is rock solid and all devices connected to it are accessible through the XR500. I can ping the devices and use them as though they were connected directly to the XR500. However, even though they are accessible, they all appear offline in the XR500 Device Manager. Is there any way to make these accurately show up as being online? Thank you. P.S. In this image, Sonoff RF, PA - Living Room, PA - Kitchen are actually offline but NVR, Cam2, Desktop-Server and MyCloudPR2100 are all online and pingable. For this tree view to be accurate, they would branch out from the Nighthawk X in the 5GHz devices.
  13. Hi Netduma Alex, Thanks for your reply. The whitelisted servers now makes sense 😀 Regarding blocked players, I think I understand! So, the blocked player triangles are [obviously] allowed on the dedicated server that I might also be connected to, even though they are outside my radius. But, if by some chance I became a peer host for the game session, those players would not be able to connect to me as a server?
