  1. Can i get the link to do the downgrade and upgrade please?
  2. As far as i am aware the XR500 has issues handling pppoe and qos on upload from what i have read on here in other threads , i am on BT
  3. I will definitely try it, do you think the xr500 having issues with pppoe connections would make it a fair test though?

    HEC Errors

    I think it is just from when it rebooted as it hasnt gone up since, it doesnt show how many were corrected, No issues that im aware of........... i get my speeds i pay for on upload

    HEC Errors

    I was looking through my line statistics and saw my HEC errors read 4294967290 on upstream ..... Firstly, what are HEC errors 🙃, and secondly, is this normal? Thanks in advance!
  6. Annnnnd then i go to page 72 of the BT forum thread and see this, which gives me hope but also makes me want to wear my monitor as a bracelet , "Hey guys. I thought I would update the thread as I have finally managed to fix the issue for my setup after weeks of searching. I recently upgraded to a Netgear Nighthawk XR300 and previously owned another Nighthawk model. While searching the internet for other people experiencing lag spikes during gaming, I found forum posts outlining the same issue with Plusnet, EE and some other ISP's in the USA. I found some information regarding the Nighthawk OS (DumaOS) and a new feature in the QOS settings called anti-buffer bloat. You can read about this here. https://community.netgear.com/t5/Nighthawk-Pro-Gaming-Routers/What-Is-Anti-buffer-Bloat/td-p/1669266 Anyway, I looked through my Netgear OS last night and found that by default, the feature was set to 'never' I switched this to 'always' as recommended by other forum posts and this has completely solved the ping spike issue. I also tweaked some of the QOS settings to prioritise my gaming set up. If you are experiencing ping spikes and have a Nighthawk router, definitely try this and this is most likely the cause of the issue. If you dont own a Nighthawk router then buying one is likely to solve the issue. Check the article out and give it some consideration."
  7. Nope the test is showing ping spikes when just the pc is playing videos no other devices, looks like it could just be bt after having a quick look on those threads
  8. I am on BT, thanks for the link il take a look i had no idea , atm the only thing that seems to stop it is unchecking share excess.
  9. No if anything it is a bit worse at 20% than before, I still get ping spikes at whatever percentage when starting a video in hd/hd60 and then spike again the next time a chunk of video is loaded, share excess is enabled on download and upload
  10. So firewall disabled and wan ip of xr500 in the dmz of hg612. I also set the xr500's ip to static so it wouldnt change. QoS set to Always. I tested using youtube hd and hd60fps videos along with Pingplotter whilst moving the sliders down in 5% increments, and there doesnt seem to be any major differences, Still getting ping spikes
  11. Ok so the firewall is disabled now, am I right in thinking that its the WAN ip of the xr500 found under internet status that should go in the hg612's DMZ ?
  12. Ok well as default the HG612 doesn't come with an interface but it is possible to unlock the device and change settings, I have a default HG612 and a unlocked hg612 ( Incase i brick the unlocked one) So i will have to look in to this and get back to you as im having issues getting back into the unlocked hg612's interface 🙃
  13. All tests done by my PC over a wired connection, wired directly to xr500. All of my devices are connected to the XR500 either over ethernet cable or wifi. My physical setup is Master socket - Hauwei hg612 - XR500. All cables are fine aswell.
  14. I used to use DSL reports but since we can't disable DPI i stopped using it and went to pingplotter. Should i still expect to see ping spikes on pingplotter at the beginning of a download on speedtest.net ?
  15. The numbers in the QoS page are 71.8 and 18.1, these numbers are from speedtest.net. I did the speedtest with all QoS disabled. I have also tried putting 75 and 18 in for the speeds. The only device in my traffic prio is my PS4 and it isnt the PS4 causing the spikes
  16. Upnp disabled, refreshed on XR500, DM200 has port forwarding but no upnp tab. Booted up dm200 interface again and still getting the same message
  17. Thanks for the advice, i tried changing the nat filtering on the DM200 to open and still no joy, then i opened the xr500's to open as well and still nothing. I tried to forward the ports on the dm200 but i just get an error message saying ; The specified port(s) are being used by other configurations. Please check your configurations of USB Readyshare, Remote Management, Port forwarding, Port Triggering, UPnP Port Mapping table, RIP, and Internet connection type
  18. So i am on pppoe on the XR500, After reading another thread about QoS issues regarding the XR500 and pppoe and seeing Fraser's advice to put a router in front of the XR500 that can handle the pppoe and vlan thats what i did, I'm using a Netgear DM200 which is in modem/router mode. The DM200's dhcp has only my XR500 in it then my XR500 is doing the DHCP for all my devices. However now when i boot up modern warfare im seeing moderate NAT type even though port 3074 is being logged in upnp. is this possibly double NAT? I have tried putting my console in the XR500's DMZ, I have assigned my console a static IP address I am unable to put the XR500 in the DM200's DMZ as it doesnt have a DMZ. I am on the latest firmware for both devices. Any and all help is appreciated
  19. No difference at all, still all the way down to 20% for best results
  20. Should the dhcp server be disabled on the modem/router or the xr500 router ? Trying something new and trying to avoid double NAT ( i dont have dmz on my modem/router )
  21. I have tried all percentages down in 10's from 100 percent and only at 20 % do I stop getting ping spikes over 50-80ms, 70% and I'm getting spikes in the hundreds.
  22. When running pingplotter and saturating my connection using hd videos, I have to turn my sliders down to 20% on both upload and download, should I really have to throttle that much to stop massive ping spikes?
