    Aswitch got a reaction from Netduma Fraser in XR500 Internet Dropping Out   
    So went to the spectrum store Friday and successfully got a UBEE E31U2V1. Since then have not had any issues since setting it up. But this is with my setup with the linksys wrt1900AC as the primary router and the XR500 i’m behind as the secondary router(with linksys having the XR500 ip address in DMZ). Played an insane amount of call of duty this whole weekend without one single crash or general disconnect from the internet. Safe to say this resolved my issue completely so far.
    So it had to either be the modem and/or XR500 in primary mode or a coincidence of both not liking each other but i’d put my money more on the modem with the defective puma chipset as that possibly would explain the dhcp leasing issues. This technically happened before when trying my WRT1900AC with ddwrt firmware, but thought it was the router. So I’d say likely using a non-puma chip manufactured  modem ultimately resolved the issue. Such a frustrating ride, but thankful to finally get to the bottom of it!
    Also made a mistake regarding the netgear CM7000. I actually had a CM1000, but had these similar issues(specifically the modern warfare crashing whole internet one). So could’ve been a scenario where maybe my particular modem had the chip even though they’re not listed to have it. I had the version 1 model but they made a version 2 model so not sure what they changed(possibly the puma chip).

    Outside of games though, The internet would still die out for a time and then come back on it seems when a dhcp lease would expire it felt like it was doing it like clockwork(could’ve been a consistent coincidence that my roommates where playing MW at this time as well)This was only with the hitton i noticed so far though so I think that puma chipset correlation is still valid gaming or not. The CM7000 is listed to include that chip so that likely could be the common demoniator(puma chip installed modems).
    Each game’s netcode is different. could’ve been a scenario where modern warfare possibly puts a unique aspect to ithe modem that games don’t, but hard to say. The fact that since replacing the modem with a confirmed non puma chipset resloved this issue i’ve been having for about 7 months now points to something for sure.

    Ok happened again right now after I was coming back to the lobby from Modern Warfare. Worked fine since last time, but I haven't been playing anything online outside of streaming which was fine.
    Here's the logs(Main XR500):
    This is from the secondary XR500(behind the first one with DMZ to this one 192.168.1.5). My Xbox is behind this one with a static IP on both the router and xbox's end.
    I'll turn off dhcp while i'm gaming to see if it happens also with dhcp turned off on the second XR500(the ip address is static though). I recall it still happening though but will try again.
    Another issue that's happening to my roommate is that some devices (that I assigned a static ip via the Main XR500) won't connect even though the static ip is reserved via the router side and the static ip is set via the device side. Issue was happening with both his PC and ipad. Once I open dhcp and set to the ipad to automatic and close it connects. It was working before as well. I can say the same for my echo dot(can't assign a static IP for it). Is there any way to modify the lease times of the static IP? It seems like for some devices it's expiring it maybe? Not sure.

    So far since turning off dhcp and the dhcp server. 1 time, but it did do this before when dhcp was on. Like exactly after backing out to the main lobby(where you customize loadouts) is when it would seem to disconnect at certain times. haven’t gotten a chance to play more since. plan to over the weekend. Will see if it happens again.

    Update so it seems like turning of dhcp via wan and dhcp server via lan helps a lot, haven't gotten any intermittent drop outs since turning both dhcp and dhcp server off, but there still seems to be an issue (maybe coincidence) where when I'm playing a game online like Modern Warfare(haven't played until last night after making those adjustments) and backing out to the main menu the internet coincidentally drops out in a similar manner as well. When checking the log there's a lot of LAN remote access logs (from the ip address of the 2nd XR500 which i'm behind in my room to access the interface) and some upnp requests. Is this a known issue as well?

    Correct turned dhcp on previously to capture the devices and add them and then I turned it off. I rebooted the modem and router and seems to be working so far though. used dhcp to capture the leased external wan ip address and then set that to static and turned dhcp server off via lan settings. That looks to be working so far since rebooting the modem and router after those changes last night. Isn't ideal of course, but i'll sure as hell take this over the sporadic complete drop outs. Curious (if DumaOS 3 doesn't resolve) if a new device tries to connect, will i be able to manually add it that way? Like will the router pick it up via the lan settings like it would if dhcp was on but just won't let it connect since it's obviously off?

    Tried this last night and to this morning, but didn't seem to work. I think it was due to just turning dhcp server off and not via wan settings. So now, I just turned both off(static ip on and turning dhcp server off) and looked to have ran into the same issue. Going to try it again another time just to be sure. rebooted both routers as well.

    Ok was debating doing that but was worried it would not let your devices connect at all(I assume new devices wouldn’t which is totally understandable if the ones already connected do)I’ll try that. Also signed up for the beta on netgear forums and here havent heard anything yet. Would love to provide feedback regarding this issue.

    For me I recall it being fine for about 48ish hrs before it started doing the same thing. (could've been a coincidence that no new devices requested a new dhcp lease during that time period I guess. But I don't have anything to lose at this point as i'm trying anything possible now as it's becoming more frequent for me.
    Tried the static IP thing. My method was to set it to dynamic to get the leased Ip address and then switch it to static, it seemed like it was working fine until it happened a couple times today.

    After some further research, it also seems to be 2 of the modems i've used have this near defective and problematic puma chipset that's likely the culprit as well:
    Hitron E31N2V1(that I replaced like 3 times)
    Netgear CM700 (personally bought)
    Someone in this thread said that switching to a non-puma chipset modem resolved the issue specifically for the internet crashing when playing MW, but may apply to this issue overall.
    If any of you guys with this issue have a modem on this list, that may likely be the problem. I've yet to test it out.
    I spoke with spectrum to see what other modem options (rental) they have that doesn't have that puma chip and they recommended the
    UBEE E31U2V1
    Going to try and go to the spectrum store tomorrow to get one of those and see how I fare.

    Whoa...So Interesting update i found out in my particular situation. So It seems that apparently, this is some issue between Modern Warfare and spectrum (My ISP) it seems:
     
    I never put the 2 together but this thread describes the exact issue i'm having and it always seemed to happen when me or my roommates who are playing Modern Warfare(Platform doesn't seem to matter but majority are xbox one x it seems which is the platform I play primarily play on but have noticed when playing on PS4Pro as well). Everyone is explaining the exact same issue I've been having for a while now. After I back out to the menu, it the internet seems to crash after roughly 2-3hrs at certain periods after I come back to the lobby. I'm in SoCal as well. Seems like it may have something to do with Spectrum interpreting Modern Warfare as a DDOS attack or something possibly. Maybe worth mentioning to some folks regarding this issue. Not quite sure if that's the case for the router as it seemed to have happened regardless(maybe someone else was playing without me knowing possibly), but I'll test this out with my current setup and let you guys know.

    Issue happened again last night with dhcp and server turned off on both XR500's. I went ahead and switched back to my linksys wrt1900AC as the primary router and gonna take this second one back since I doubt i'll get the beta in time before the return period closes. I was holding out to see if that would ultimately resolve. Turning off DHCP seemed to exchange one problem for another as the not being able to connect to the internet for some devices  while still having the internet disconnect issue happening. Really hope 3.0 fixes this. Thanks for the help.

    Aswitch got a reaction from Netduma Fraser in New XR500 hotfix firmware for drop outs   
    Yeah that was one aspect I suspected as well. I called their support inquiring about that, but the person I was talking to wasn't really aware of it and how to do so. They sent a refresh signal yesterday and that seemed to have helped so far. They claimed that the issue seems to be the modem from what they said. A tech is coming Thursday so going to inquire about all of that and provide an update then.
    For the meantime I rolled back to the hotfix firmware from this thread and it seems to be working better so far. It still disconnects temporarily it seems but it's very brief and doesn't seem to completely shutdown our whole network like it was doing before. We're still waiting on upgraded wiring for gigabit which may possibly be a culprit as well. Getting like 400-500 speeds which I'm assuming is a limitation of coaxial cable vs fiber so waiting to see if everything irons out when the tech comes this thursday basically so we know for sure where the issue is coming from.

    dang I ended up just clearing them out since they didn't seem to help before getting that last part. But I basically added these :  
    PS4
    TCP: 80, 443, 1935, 3478-3480. UDP: 3478-3479.
    Xbox
    Port 88 (UDP)
    Port 3074 (UDP and TCP)
    Port 53 (UDP and TCP)
    Port 80 (TCP)
    Port 500 (UDP)
    Port 3544 (UDP)
    Port 4500 (UDP)
    For honor said to open the same ports for PS4 as well.
    I didn't duplicate the ones that are within both.
    After removing these and changing the starting dhcp address to 192.168.88.2 it looks like it put the cpus in the 50-60 range now. I'll check back in a while to update if that was the snafu.

    I went ahead and added the general ports for Both PS4 and Xbox to the port triggering list. Checked majority of games and they seem to fall under the same ones so going to see how that fares.

    Some good advice here. I'll mess around with these. I know for sure DNS wise I have 8.8.8.8 setup. Not sure about 8.8.4.4 but I'll add it if I haven't
    I would've liked to refrain from separating the routers via subnet as i'd like to access the routers/devices if needed and see what device is causing an issue and assign a device for geofiltering and vpn use but I guess I could just blanket the whole router in theory in those instances which hasn't been needed lately as I mainly use those features, but if that were to resolve it ultimately, I'll give it a shot and see what happens. I'll setup my R1 behind my room with all of my devices on its own subnet and adjust the others to their own in that case. It feels like the abundance of devices might factor to some extent(possibly too much info to save) but didn't think it would since no more than like 10-15 devices are active at once. I know device manager wise, it's crazy so I have to switch to table view.
    DHCP renewing could be the possible culprit. Seeing it first hand, it instantly disconnects and doesn't seem to connect back (within a reasonable time at least within 5 mins as i'd reboot before then in order to resolve). Only certain devices are affected, but not all of them. static ip andresses and dhcp leased addresses don't seem to matter either.
    Yup UPnP is enabled as well.
    I'll make these changes when I get home and see how they fair.
    Thanks again for the help,
