Hello everyone. Although I returned my xr500 router I have not given up hope on the brand or the the software that is being used in the gaming models. I am at a loss thinking about everything I tried to do from following the basic settings, to reading and watching videos for a week before I purchased the xr500. My internet service is att fiber 1000, I have the bgw210 gateway set to pass through mode to allow the old netgear X8 router to do all the work. Pass through mode in the gateway is set per dslreports instructions over in the att uverse boards. The only thing that I did not do is when you configure the bgw210 to pass through mode you need to save the routers MAC address into the gateways interface. This is the one thing I didn't do. I'm wondering if this was behind the lag I was experiencing? I'm going to look into this some more, but I wonder if any net duma employees have this gateway with att fiber BGW210 set in pass through mode? If so did they update the stored MAC address in the gateway? Has anyone mentioned this or tried this step if the have the same ISP service? When you initially set the gateway in pass through mode you save the current routers MAC address in the gateway, and like me in all the excitement completely forgot to update this? Can anyone try this out and see if it helps? I might or might not be on to something but it's worth a try.
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
