    Sorry I misexplained, which did you select for IPv6 from these options:

    Depending on which you selected, DHCP or Auto Config for LAN IPs may be selected, select what isn't the default - all LAN devices will get an IPv6 address, forget setting an address on the device manually

    I've been choosing DHCP since that's what my modem has.  I've tried auto config.  But now, every time I start my xbox series x there's never an ipv6.  It's really strange.   Wait  I just watched it after a couple minutes and then magically IPv6 popped up.  why isn't it it instantly recognized with the IPv4 on start up?  This is tripping me out.  Here.  I cut out my IPv6 addresses for security just in case you shouldn't post them.

    Which IPv6 type are you using? You could try turning off the IPv6 DHCP server and set a static IPv6 address on the console itself

    would I just use the WAN and LAN ipv6 addresses? I'm not sure how to do that with IPv6.  And wouldn't the rest of my network suffer from not having IPv6?

    I don't appear to be able to see the image you've inserted unfortunately, could you perhaps upload it as an attachment instead?

    We've performed quite a lot of troubleshooting here so I'm hoping that the new Comcast modem is the fix but if it's not please do let us know and we can certainly delve deeper.

    Are you able to then re-enable Geo-filter after everyone has joined your party or does it then kick them out? 

    They join when it's off then it usually keeps them,  but I've had them allowed or they've lived close.

    The biggest problem I'm having is this IPv6 b.s.  It literally stops working for no reason.  I'll be playing a game and the connection will feel bad so I"ll check and sure enough IPv6 isn't being seen.  Rebooting the router is the only fix so to have to do this multiple times a day is beyond annoying.  We've talked to comcast and have ordered a new router from them but I highly doubt that's the issue.  My parents are having connectivity issues with their streaming services as well to the point of them saying we should get an additional connection.   So whatever is causing the horrible speeds needs to be resolved. I've resigned to setting the QoS sliders to 70/70 even though the auto detect always, and I mean always sets them to like 51/98.  Literally out of ideas as to what to do.


    EDIT: And yes, IPv6 works and is recognized by computer.  But now it's doing this garbage:

    it will have an ipv6 for lan tho.

    How often would you say the IPv6 connection lasts before it goes off exactly?

    It turns off every time I turn on geo-filter pretty much.  Once Geo-filtering is on my xbox no longer says IPv4 & IPv6.  I restarted my xbox and it made the IPv6 show back up.  BUT this leads to a huge problem.  Since I'm using xbox party chat whenever I want to party up with a friend I have to turn off geo-filtering or it won't connect us.   Ever.   Even if they're allowed.  So, restarting wouldn't be such a big deal if I didn't need to also be host and use party chat.  I have to host games because my friends net is horrible atm.  But that's just in the scenario of me playing with other people.  basically if I play with any other person I can't use geo-filtering which makes the feature useless.  I've struggled getting it to work right for months now and I think I'm probably just going to get a different router since this one blows.

    Enable IPv6 in settings then reboot from the interface and see if that helps to preserve the settings and keep it enabled for the console

    that's generally what I do.  I restarted my console and it fixed it once.  but sometimes I have to go into the settings > reboot section and reboot the entire internet connection.

  7. I'm really at a loss.  Even if I leave everything alone my xbox will stop recognizing my IPv6.  Lately it's been saying moderate when the IPv6 stops being recognized.  I restarted my xbox and it fixed it but it's still confusing as to why this continually happens.  I hate having to restart my router every single day.

  8. Now I'm definitely not positive but I think that what's causing the spikes is either my webcam or the webcam software I use Xsplit Vcam.   It removes the background without needing a green screen.  They seem like really high CPU/GPU processes.   when I use just the webcam without vcam the spikes go away a bit.  I'll post some examples shortly.

    Well the first thing I've noticed which I think will have a significant impact is your upload Congestion Control percentage, it is far too high for it to efficiently eliminate lag and considering streaming uses upload this should be lower. I'd recommend lowering to 70% to start with and see how you get on

  10. well it I mean when the elgato app is open it's only flucating by about 3 or 4ms.  when it's normal and I'm playing a game not streaming it seems like it's at 1ms ping or so.  everything else sky rockets when I stream.  the elgato app had maybe a little to do with it but I don't think it was the main problem.

    What settings are you streaming with, i.e. resolution, fps etc?

    Nothing crazy have my elgato HD60 S+ at the resolution 1080p60 right now.

    60fps, 6000 video bitrate.

    output 1280x720

    I'm running xsplit vcam also which seems pretty heavy on my computer in general.  but I've got all the basics taken care, I am getting a new PC soon but it won't be for a month or two.  It's just strange the programs are ping spiking my xbox without even being live.  I just open the program and the spikes start happening.  Maybe it's an issue with my computer itself I'm not sure, it could be too much for it to handle but even so would this really be something this router couldn't fix?
