  1. So that's usually what I do is select IOWA, try about 10 times. Kicks me 10 times trying to connect to Dallas. Change it to New York and play on the New York servers. Seems like this is my only option. I do notice when I am in the lobby it pings a start up server in Texas. Could it have my location incorrect? And is trying to connect me to the closet server thinking I am in Texas?
  2. Nope, IOWA is the closest at about 25ms, next is New York 40ms, Virginia 43ms, S. Carolina 45ms, Then Dallas 50-60ms. It takes about 30 tries and I will eventually get put into a server in St. Louis which pings at like 13ms when I'm in, but never IOWA. This is why it is so frustrating because Iowa is selected and it tries to put me in Dallas. Well if I can't get a server in Iowa I can pick New York and get a server in New York 95% of the time. I do notice that Virginia and S. Carolina seem to connect to New York a lot to. It's almost like the majority of open servers are either through New York or Dallas. I feel it's misleading to ping all these servers in your region, have you select a location and put you in a Dallas server 99% of the time which is no where near the pinged location at startup.
  3. There is no Chicago server. There is only IOWA GCE 1,2,3 & 4. But when it pings them all when you first login, on the NetDuma it pings servers in IOWA and St. Louis. St. Louis is a option but it says -1 100% packet loss and does not allow you to pick it. One of the Iowa servers must be a St. Louis server its pinging or it would not show up on the map. However, no matter which server I have selected for Iowa 1,2,3 or 4. It tries to put me in a Dallas server. It's super frustrating, because I have IOWA selected as my location yet it keeps putting me in Dallas. Obviously someone in New York or Dallas have an advantage in this game.
  4. I guess it is an Respawn/Apex problem. When the game starts up it pings all the servers on the list. IOWA is the lowest ping and so I have the Iowa server selected. With IOWA selected it almost always tries to put me in a Dallas server which is terrible. 1 out of 20 tries I will get a St. Louis server which is what I want like 13ms, lighting fast, but NEVER do I get connected to a server in IOWA although it pings it when the game starts. The Dallas servers are terrible for me running at about 60ms feels like I die instantly and cant get a shot off. If it were not for the NETDUMA I would think I was connected to an Iowa server. I have switched to the New York servers which run around 40ms, but are still a hell of a lot better than Dallas and give me a New York server 95% of the time. If you can think of any solutions to this let me know. If I have an extra 30 minutes I will wait for St. Louis but sucks I cant get it to connect to these servers all the time. Is there a way to stay in the game matchmaking until one opens up?
  5. XR500? What is the point of the allow/deny button if you have to block 4000 servers? I see a ton of threads on Apex have your team found any solutions for this game on server select or is it pretty bad? I ask because this is pretty much the only game I play at the moment.
  6. I posted this in a different thread yesterday. Is there a way to add an entire IP address or range to the deny list. I am trying to deny a group of Texas servers on Apex Xbox. I have Iowa region selected but seems to always connect to Texas. I have blocked probably a hundred servers in the region but it keeps connecting to them. There is like 4000+ servers with similiar ip addresses in this region. This makes the allow deny list useless. Also if I block this region with filter options it just keeps kicking me out of the game. I have to relaunch it 20 times to get a server in the Iowa region. Would this work if I had every single server in Texas blocked in deny list? Thanks Jim
  7. Is there a way to block entire blocks of servers? All the Texas servers start with 204.74.____.____. Is there any way to block the entire range of IP addresses? Thanks
  8. Yup on Apex Legends for XBOX this router is pretty useless. It connects to a Texas peer server 29 out of 30 times. If I legit want an Iowa server I have to re connect 30 times to get a match. Also I blacklisted close to 200 servers in Texas and they still have new IP's and servers. How is this possible?
  9. Have to say after 10 year of owning a NetDuma, I don't understand this router at all. Is there a geo-filter manual on how the internals are trying to connect. The first server always appears as a solid square with a border around it and is one, sometimes two in Texas. This is when I am in the lobby. What is this if not a server because I can ping it and it has an IP? When I click to join a game (In Spectator mode), One server will appear in Texas next to it or Nothing, Zero servers show on the map! matter fact all servers disappear. Every once in a while one will pop up usually in Texas. So I have no idea what server it is connected to and even if I did would not matter because I have zero control to connect to another closer. Any time I put restrictions on the location it will time out, kick me out and wont even let me back into a lobby until I remove all restrictions. So the cloud update is today? (Friday) What does the cloud even do? When I flush cloud I get an error, I refresh the page and the same thing happens every time. I am also confused on white listing the server. If it is not on the blacklist would it not automatically be able to connect to this server and there for be white listed? One other question is on playing with 2 other peers. Is there any way to force connect the Geo-Filter to a server near me in Chicago. Any time I put restrictions on the location it will time out, kick me out and wont even let me back into a lobby until I remove all restrictions. Making the Geo-Filter pretty much not usable if all it does is kick you out of the room.
  10. Here was another in Texas in spectating mode only Host TypeDedicated IDf9175520b4986166 Domain Namescusxt1.ipv6.microsoft.com.akadns.net. Name 0/20
  11. Tried this last night how can I ping the server when it never connects?
  12. Pulled out the R1 again last night to see if it worked any better. After an hour of trying to connect to Iowa servers selected and a 500 mile radius. Im convinced that DumaOS is unusable. It trys to connect to one location of 2 servers in Texas everytime and then times out.
  13. In fact in the game when I have an option to pick which server Iowa are the only ones pinging MS. But when it tries to connect it always goes to one server in Texas
  14. I have this problem with every game. No matter what I do it gives me one option in Texas and boots me. It is impossible to use the geo-filter. Is this a setting, is the router broken? Super frustrating. When I go to flush cloud I get an error. Is this the reason it does not work? 20191218_144516_580208466817.mp4
  15. It won't let me play any games unless I include Virginia. Been doing this for 25 min with no luck.
  16. I am playing Apex legends where I can pick the St. Louis server yet the Duma tries to connect to a server in Virginia every time. It does the same thing on PUBG any ideas what is going on here?
  17. I won't be going with this router as I don't think its a hardware issue.
  18. and the XBOX is showing connected to the LAN even though I unplug the Ethernet cord from the console and sometimes will also get stuck offline and if it does not recognize the gaming console. What is the point of a "professional gaming router"?
  19. Thanks for the info killhippie I have seen you on some other posts comparing the two. At first I did notice the XR500 range and speeds seemed better but after multiple back and forth testing it has been really all over the map for both routers. I agree with you on pretty much every thing else and I do want to stick with the XR500 but when the device manager does not recognize devices and there for does not add them to the network monitor. I have to question if the router is even working efficiently as it should or the whole thing is a show. Here is my screen at the moment showing the PC I am on right now showing as offline and does not show any traffic on network monitor even if I use it to use a lot of bandwidth. Maybe I should just drop Netgear all together. Asus?
