  1. thats alottt of devices, honestly if you just use the 70/70 it should be just fine. you could take a day when literally nothing else is in use and just test things from 70/70 and move it up till it falters. Its most likely just not kicking in for you as it should. I was actually having a lag issue with my internet and had to reboot the cable modem AND router. I was perfectly fine after that though. I have 100/10 and just leave the 70/70 on. But honestly, if ur testing it after resetting or rebooting it might be that nothing had been using your internet and gave you a different result. As frasier said, youre probably just not using the optimal setting, you'd be surprised what even 1-5% difference will do.
  2. you mean to say you click the reboot option? I think thats what Alex was referring to, that or unplugging it and plugging back in, but I tend to resort to that only if nothing else works.
  3. Idk just feel like the netduma team is catering much more to certain games as apposed to all of them :/....kinda why i just stopped showing my face around thee forums anymore. You guys only care about big titles and thats it. Prove me wrong, because all i see the focus on is games like call of duty, or destiny, or even a stupid game like rocket league, so what gives? Ive honestly almost decided that at this point its almost not even worth using a netduma anymore because the support for it is kinda poor.
  4. Yes it finally released for ps4 players too! Though im sure were not likely to see a merging of servers of any kind sadly. Yea im sure it is buggy, it took a minute for them to work out kinks on xbox one, but now its fairly bug free for the most part. Yeah you can choose your server, so it doesnt really show you the ability to ping any of them. no matter if you boot the game, or if you click a server, no indictation of a server pops up on the map, unless i missed something. Im not sure if all these servers are located in the same place? Even if they are, it would be cool to know what your ping is while playing, since the game doesnt offer an in game ping like im sure pc has. That way when im playing i can know if when i start to lag if its the connection or frame rates, at this point its only guessing. im sure you could get really nifty and find a way to capture that connection info with a sniffing tool, but I didnt want to go through all that effort :))
  5. yeah somewhat. Is there never going to be support for Black Desert Online? Its not that i really need a "geo filter", but it would be lovely to see what my ping is when ive connected to a server. I dont think it shows what it is while connected or even booting the game up. Not sure why, most others do though.
  6. honestly its probably hardware, regardless of the age. DumaOS just seems like more than the R1 can handle tbh.
  7. I have been locked on black desert online, I’m enjoying it and all it’s crappy moments, but I at least know the game is about working for what you deserve versus just a simple “connection advantage “. Though I will say, I think my R1 is starting to crap out and I don’t know if another Netduma is in my future....that edge router seems quite enticing 🤷🏻‍♂️ And for a fraction of the cost. Guess we will see though. It’s that or maybe the xr 500? Idk yet
  8. Actually I looked into business and potentially gigabit cable, but speed means nothing when neither is better than the other. I don’t have enough devices to warrant higher than my plan, and I was told that due to net neutrality agreements that ISPs don’t offer any benefit from residential to business, just more priority in terms of issues arising, static IPs etc. now if I was to run fiber straight to my house from the Maine office, that may yield an edge. Sadly the USA is so behind in fiber technology it’s kinda pathetic. Yet other places have tons of fiber and even multi gigabit speeds 🙁
  9. Well, I’ll check it out next time I boot the game up. Thing is they have different servers too. So they might call one type of world balenos and have balenos 1-2-3 and you can chat amongst all of those balenos servers via normal chat, but then if you want to cross over into posting to the whole “world” then you have to shout to the world with a specific item lol (you can get it free just from daily loyalty log in points or buy them). Essentially each “server” be it one two or three are all dynamically different. So a field boss could spawn on balenos 1 and not 2. But then there’s World bosses which cross among them all.
  10. I barely do either lol, I have one character specifically dedicated of AFK work to make money. I dont see servers upon booting up the game however. It would be nice to see what the servers ping is while actively playing it, since they dont offer in game ping on console version sadly. I assume their cluster of servers are all located in the same area as they don't really change, much like most pc style games
  11. very grindy asian mmo haha, i like it tbh. Theres something about it thats kept me hooked to it. Its very similar to ESO though, all open world.
  12. Would like to see some server information be added to cloud, that way I can figure out what ones are closer and the least laggy, of course these are all dedicated but at least I can know what ones to avoid and real time data

    I have the spectrum 100mb/s download and 10 upload. Its not speed that matters as has always been said many times on these forums. QOS matter, line quality matters etc. If they redid the lines then theres obviously something wrong, that or they are just being overly generous and trying to please you as a customer. Some places are willing to go the extra mile and others wont. I see similar graphs to what you are showing and yet I still get decent games, not perfect though. My pings do not look as bad as that though. Whats the max speeds they offer you? I know I can get the gigabit over coax, but that seems wasteful, as it is my line is provisioned for extra and it never goes under that with QOS off. Also pinging locally may be much worse than pinging something somewhere else, since the route can be really crap, usually its not great unless its fiber. I will say though even my local ping is pretty damn good, depending on where I decide to ping to. Sometimes its actually worth having DSL over cable, if the lines are crap or you are getting over saturated on your cable loop then you're in trouble. The modem I have from them is like a Ubee one and it has ports for an ethernet cable to go to the modem and a phone line port for a basic phone service. Its basically just modulating different signals (thought I dont use home phone, come on its 2019 lol). Never play wired though, also do you have any coax ports uncapped? sometimes signal leaks occur and cause noise im pretty sure since now that the signal is degraded noise can overtake it. Im sure it doesn't have to be to much to start affecting the quality of the signal. I don't think spectrum uses the modems with that chipset...unless this varies by area, but what they should have as a standard now is like the one I described.
  14. Interesting, I mean I don’t have a lot of traffic per say. But I do feel like the 500 has the best price/power/feature ratio. It would seem that BB would stay at a minimum over the inferior cpu’s of the lower tiers. I don’t get why there’s a massive price increase just for theoretical “faster WiFi” but if the are functionally the same device aside from that and looks then I don’t see the point in paying more. I’m sure the 300 isn’t bad, and is a step up from the R1. Also I’ve seen many of them used on eBay, not sure if that’s a safe route though since you never know what you are buying at that point, there’s also refurbished ones via places like Newegg. But I’m not sure if those are worth dipping into either.
