Ok so overall my internet is not as stable as I would like. Cox knows that their internet is not the best for gaming so they set up their VPN called Elite Gamer. Normally where my ping would be in the high 80s, it can cut it down to around 17 if it choose the correct servers. So it fixes my issue mostly. I would still like to take advantage of Nighthawk XR500's geofilter but anytime I try to use XR500 and Elitegamer together I get a lot of lagspikes. My normal setup goes: COX modem > XR500 > Gaming PC all hardwired ethernet. For testing purposes I connected an ethernet from my Cox modem directly to my gaming pc and when I play games with EG VPN on there are little to no lag spikes. What are some troubleshooting steps I can try to see if I can get the Cox modem and EG VPN to work smoothly with XR500??
Hey guys, New to the forum here. Just picked up my Duma during the Black Friday sale. I am losing my mind right now trying to find good settings for COD WW2. I have a gigabit fiber line (1k up & down) and I feel like I am remarkably laggy in 95% of my games. I live in LA (Los Angeles not Louisiana) and with geo filtering set to between 500 / 600 miles and strict mode ticked, I'm often connected to hosts 2500 to 5000 miles away with player pings ranging from 150ms to 550ms and I've even seen up to 1000ms when it connects me to servers in the UK. I'm a hardcore player but I've recently started playing some core game modes to watch the kill cams and see how someone killed me that wasn't on my screen. In the replays, other players are standing in front of me, clear as day and it looks as if I'm an easy afk kill. I've tried every setting I've found suggested on the forums and everything I've found on youtube. The issue is I can't find much info for fiber setups and if I do, it's people with speeds around 100 down and 10 up. The only thing so far that has occasionally given me decent games is to massively throttle my connection. It's not enough to do it with the CC sliders though. I have to change my bandwidth to 100 down and 100 up and then drop my CC sliders way down. I've tried reactive & preemptive and always have super turbo off so I can utilize CC. Router is on the newest firmware, system is hardwired, ports are forwarded, NAT is open and I live alone so the only other device connected is my laptop running nothing but the netduma router config page. Issue remains the same regardless of if I'm playing in a party (hosting or not) or playing solo. Any input is GREATLY appreciated. Let me know if you need more information. Im an IT so I can ramble on and go level 10 nerd if it's helpful. :-) Thanks! PS4 Pro - COD WW2
