  1. Hello. Since my R2 replacement i constantly get packet loss and ping spikes in various games (COD BF5 Fortnite Apex Legends).I get packet loss either with Lan or Wifi. Multiplayer games are almost unplayable because of disconnects. At first i tought its game servers or my ISP.Hovewer there are things i tried already: Ethernet cable replacement Updated Firmware Different LAN Cable Disabled IPv6 Adjusted QoS sliders from 10 to 100, Disabled QoS Different Multiplayer games Disabled Geofilter Sync Cloud Multiple factory resets Changed WiFi settings to different channels (Automatic too) Manual Dns settings in R2 and in Game consoles (happening in ps4 and xbox sereies x) Disabled Protection Nothing helped, till i tried different router (TP Link).And i realized - this problem is happening only with R2. 2 different routers that i tested,dont have problems with packet loss and ping spikes.Everything is stable even withous QoS My firmware is 3.2.453 (This problem started with stock 3.0.207i firmware. Basically when i got my R2 replacement.) My speeds from ISP is Fiber 1000/1000 .In reality 800-900/850-900. I dont know what to do next. Please help me with this problem...
  2. ---- *NOTE FROM NETDUMA FRASER* Keep in mind, the R1 still works with those listed you just may get a better experience with those in the compatibility list. Some people use those in the non compatible list and have no issues. There is no reason to purchase another modem/router unless you have specifically found issues with your existing modem/router. You are advised to do your own research before making a financial commitment. ---- THIS IS IN NO WAY A FULL LIST OF THE BEST GAMING MODEMS. AS A GENERAL RULE - STAY AWAY FROM ISP PROVIDED "ALL IN ONE" MODEM/ROUTER HUBS IF YOU CAN. IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR A NEW MODEM AND WANT TO BE SURE IT WILL WORK PROPERLY ONLY PURCHASE FROM THE GOOD MODEM LIST.

  3. Ive had my netgear nighthawk pro XR1000 for a few months now and I've always seemed to have an issue with random lag spikes every few minutes and I've sort of dealer with it. But now as of late, most of the devices in my house when gaming receive very high ping. Like very high ping, one ps4 had ping around 900's while the other ps4 had it in the high 500's. My lan connected pc which I have designated a static ip too, also receives high ping in the high 100's. I've also noticed my internet becomes more stable with qos disabled. Any ideas as to what can be causing the random lag spikes and high ping? I have 1 gb download and 40 upload for internet speeds. Thanks
  4. I spent a good amount of money on this gaming router for it not to work when I want to game. I've had this router for maybe about a year now and I am still experiencing the same problem. I have my PC and my PS5 connected to my Netduma internet. My PC internet is fine, but when ever I use the Netduma internet on my PS5 it will give me voice errors in party chat. Along with that when me and my friends try and load into a game, they will load in and I will get kicked out of it. This happens every time and it is only when I'm connected to the Netduma internet. I got this router for gaming so I shouldn't have to change back to my normal spectrum internet to play games. If there is a way to fix it please let me know ASAP!
  5. Hi, we experience bad lag when both console are online. Do you have any guidance on what the best settings are for the xr500 on a multi console household? Connection is fine when only one console is online.
  6. Hello everyone. I would like to solve my severe lag, hit detection and desync issues on warzone and other online games. I have a very low ping if I play on Italian servers <35ms and always <65 on other servers. But my ttk is much higher than the ttd, I get a super bullet and die in an instant. Then when I see the killcam and I see that the enemies have seen me a long time before and I often shoot empty even in the sky. When I shoot I don't miss shots but I happened to lose fights with people who were not shooting at me and were reloading the weapon. Obviously I use a good ethernet cable, the connection is excellent and I formatted the whole pc. I've tried using the factory settings and it doesn't change much. For me it is impossible to play so it is as if the enemies have 500hp and I have 50hp. I tried to change mtu to 1492 (my ideal mtu) to use it automatic, i changed dhcp connection with ppoe but the results are always bad. Help me resolve please I'm desperate. And as a last question I would like to understand how to prevent the game from always directing me to servers other than those I want to force with geofilter. I would like to play on the Italian server, to find other Italian people like me and it would make everything much easier. My friends find many more Italians, both those with 0.5 and also those with 2.5kd
  7. Hello, I have a NetDuma R2 and I have problems when using NDI (Newteck) because when transmitting the information from PC1 -> PC2 with ndi activated, lag occurs, this does not happen if I use the router provided by the internet provider Also, another curious thing happens and it is that I have a switch connected to R2 and if I use the switch to connect my Pc1 and Pc2 the NDI works correctly, that is, lag only occurs when the pcs are connected directly to R2. Greetings
  8. Hey DumaFam! My name is Kirneill from SenseQuality and I optimize Professional Players/Streamers/Influencers. (Some of you You might know me from my old name SweatPapi) I just wanted to show my appreciation to the DUMA family and answer some questions you guys might have 😊 To give you a summary, we Optimize almost everything. PCs, Networks, Streams, even Residential Construction. I got lucky as Call of Duty switched to online + Before we started, A lot of people (outside of us nerds🤓) didn't believe in Optimization. The secret to Optimizations? I'll tell you: I don't know everything & I never assume someone's situation is the same. (It never is) This approach leads to better decisions, research, and results. That's pretty much it😊 Why do we recommend DumaOS? Because even though we work with almost all advanced routers (OpenWRT, PFSense,Etc.) , we recommend DumaOS as it's user friendly and people can use it after we finish optimizing them! (Ex: Geofilter) Duma focuses on delivering a user friendly environment and it saves us a lot of explaining while providing the same value than other routers. (AT A LOWER COST, WUT?)🤣 To me, It's about delivering the best most consistent experience! Here is examples of Optimizations: JOEWOE.mp4 So Ask Me Anything and i'll do my best to answer! I appreciate all of you!

  10. Hey, I'm trying to find out if I'm experiencing upload UDP packet loss when playing cod. Does anyone know the what packet size, length, datagrams and general bandwidth the PS4/PS5 uses when playing the game ? I've done some testing with IPerf but I'd like to try and mimic the packet size etc to mimic the game traffic. My assumption is that the game uses TCP for ping and game setup but UDP for the in game traffic. I get that packet loss will always occur as it's the nature of networks but to what degree is acceptable to play a game. With TCP the packets are resent, UDP they are general just dropped. My ISP Supplier test says there is nothing wrong with the line but my gaming experience is very poor, even with Geo filtering, anti bufferbloat and traffic prioritisation. I moved from Plusnet 80Mb Down 20Mb to Sky G.fast 150Mb Down 20Mb up a few months ago, however I see the same results on each ISP. This makes me think it's at the hardware level, perhaps the DSLAM, interleaving on/off etc. I wonder if when playing the game the download traffic is prioritised or affecting the upload throughput. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- TESTING DETAILS -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I'm using IPerf3 to run UDP diagnostics to a server I've got hosted. For anyone familiar with iperf, I'm running the command. ./iperf3 -c (my server) -p 5400 -u -l 20 TEST 1 below, UDP upload on ISP - You can see a ten second test shows around 20% packet loss TEST 2 below, UDP upload, on hotspot - Same test parameters 0.76% packet loss TEST 3 below, UDP download on ISP - 0% packet loss I believe this the reason a lot of people experience the same issues in game and the ISP's / Openreach do not address it. Pointing your Geo location further away might reduce the perceived effect of packet loss, however playing on a 20ms game with 20% packet loss seems to have big effect. I've even tried inducing an addition ping delay up to from 50 - 100ms through an OpenWRT router but it doesn't improve things. I believe UDP packet loss is the main culprit. There is no packet loss on the download. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- TESTS DETAILS BELOW -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- ----------------- TEST 1 - UPLOAD UDP TEST ON ISP ----------------- [ ID] Interval Transfer Bitrate Jitter Lost/Total Datagrams [ 5] 0.00-1.00 sec 95.7 KBytes 784 Kbits/sec 0.030 ms 1053/5953 (18%) [ 5] 1.00-2.00 sec 102 KBytes 833 Kbits/sec 0.032 ms 1375/6579 (21%) [ 5] 2.00-3.00 sec 101 KBytes 827 Kbits/sec 0.041 ms 1348/6515 (21%) [ 5] 3.00-4.00 sec 101 KBytes 828 Kbits/sec 0.022 ms 1436/6608 (22%) [ 5] 4.00-5.00 sec 101 KBytes 831 Kbits/sec 0.033 ms 1353/6547 (21%) [ 5] 5.00-6.00 sec 101 KBytes 828 Kbits/sec 0.041 ms 1341/6519 (21%) [ 5] 6.00-7.00 sec 98.9 KBytes 811 Kbits/sec 0.043 ms 1483/6549 (23%) [ 5] 7.00-8.00 sec 107 KBytes 879 Kbits/sec 0.016 ms 1099/6594 (17%) [ 5] 8.00-9.00 sec 103 KBytes 847 Kbits/sec 0.027 ms 1263/6557 (19%) [ 5] 9.00-10.00 sec 103 KBytes 841 Kbits/sec 0.032 ms 1267/6521 (19%) [ 5] 10.00-10.01 sec 20.0 Bytes 11.4 Kbits/sec 0.489 ms 18/19 (95%) - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - [ ID] Interval Transfer Bitrate Jitter Lost/Total Datagrams [ 5] 0.00-10.01 sec 1014 KBytes 830 Kbits/sec 0.489 ms 13036/64961 (20%) receiver ----------------- TEST 2 - UPLOAD TEST ON 4G HOTSPOT THROUGH IPHONE ----------------- [ ID] Interval Transfer Bandwidth Total Datagrams [ 4] 0.00-1.00 sec 116 KBytes 948 Kbits/sec 5940 [ 4] 1.00-2.01 sec 128 KBytes 1.05 Mbits/sec 6579 [ 4] 2.01-3.00 sec 128 KBytes 1.05 Mbits/sec 6552 [ 4] 3.00-4.01 sec 128 KBytes 1.05 Mbits/sec 6567 [ 4] 4.01-5.00 sec 128 KBytes 1.05 Mbits/sec 6564 [ 4] 5.00-6.01 sec 128 KBytes 1.05 Mbits/sec 6552 [ 4] 6.01-7.01 sec 128 KBytes 1.05 Mbits/sec 6554 [ 4] 7.01-8.01 sec 128 KBytes 1.05 Mbits/sec 6554 [ 4] 8.01-9.01 sec 127 KBytes 1.04 Mbits/sec 6510 [ 4] 9.01-10.01 sec 128 KBytes 1.05 Mbits/sec 6552 - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - [ ID] Interval Transfer Bandwidth Jitter Lost/Total Datagrams [ 4] 0.00-10.01 sec 1.24 MBytes 1.04 Mbits/sec 0.089 ms 492/64824 (0.76%) [ 4] Sent 64824 datagrams ----------------- TEST 3 - Download TEST with the same parameters on ISP ----------------- [ ID] Interval Transfer Bandwidth Jitter Lost/Total Datagrams [ 4] 0.00-1.00 sec 128 KBytes 1.05 Mbits/sec 0.246 ms 0/2625 (0%) [ 4] 1.00-2.00 sec 128 KBytes 1.05 Mbits/sec 0.308 ms 0/2621 (0%) [ 4] 2.00-3.00 sec 128 KBytes 1.05 Mbits/sec 0.274 ms 0/2616 (0%) [ 4] 3.00-4.00 sec 128 KBytes 1.05 Mbits/sec 0.237 ms 0/2625 (0%) [ 4] 4.00-5.00 sec 128 KBytes 1.05 Mbits/sec 0.275 ms 0/2624 (0%) [ 4] 5.00-6.00 sec 128 KBytes 1.05 Mbits/sec 0.277 ms 0/2619 (0%) [ 4] 6.00-7.00 sec 128 KBytes 1.05 Mbits/sec 0.282 ms 0/2621 (0%) [ 4] 7.00-8.00 sec 128 KBytes 1.05 Mbits/sec 0.359 ms 0/2622 (0%) [ 4] 8.00-9.00 sec 128 KBytes 1.05 Mbits/sec 0.231 ms 0/2621 (0%) [ 4] 9.00-10.00 sec 128 KBytes 1.05 Mbits/sec 0.273 ms 0/2622 (0%) - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - [ ID] Interval Transfer Bandwidth Jitter Lost/Total Datagrams [ 4] 0.00-10.00 sec 1.25 MBytes 1.05 Mbits/sec 0.209 ms 0/26231 (0%) [ 4] Sent 26231 datagrams
  11. for a long time now i have noticed really high receive rates... but my ping and send rate are good... or rather steady. this rate goes all the way up to 1000+ when you start a gun battle. is there anything i can do. i get A+ on score with connection benchmark and dsl reports. i feel like this is whats causing the shoot first die first moments... my reaction time is harmed by receiving the pks that bit slower and even though my send rate is good i die in almost all close quarter fights????
  12. I've had the Netduma R2 for a while now but I feel like I'm not getting the speeds I should be getting. Can I please have some help?
  13. I've had the Netduma R2 for a while now and I still feel as if I'm not getting the speeds I should be getting. I would like to get in depth in a 1 on 1 conversation with a member.
  14. I have the Netduma R2 router connected to my PC and my PS4 in my room. Unfortunately, my router has to be in my living room and when I play my games and I experience lag. Is there a Wifi booster that I can purchase to help my connection in my room or even a wifi booster that I can LAN cable to my PS4?
  15. I bought R2 about a month ago, I specially got my internet all changed to a public IP instead of a VLAN which was a lot of work. I have tried everything to fix the mentioned issues in the title. This thing cannot handle my internet and network at all, I have a gigabit connection and it shows 10 mbps on connection benchmark. When I just got it, it was working well, but with time the quality has degraded at a constant rate. This is a pretty expensive router too, this internet and packet loss issue is not to be expected of a product of this price range. I changed back to my R7000 and everything is stable and amazing again but unfortunately I cannot have the QoS and geo-filters on it. I need help, please this is extremely aggravating and I have been on this for a while. I have a dual stack connection (IPv4&IPv6).
  16. Hi I have my nighthawk 300 router set up with geo filtering to within 599 miles of my location. Ping assist is currently off. This doesn't seem to help me connect to better lobbies at all. Every single game I play the ping is well over 100, and high packet loss.
  17. I'd say my knowledge is above average when it comes to tech/internet stuff. I can usually troubleshoot pretty well given I can Google almost anything. But I've completely exhausted my resources and don't know what to do anymore. For starters, here's what I got. I have the 1000 down package from Cox. I have their modem/router plugged to the wall. And my XR500 plugged into their modem/router. Then I have my PS4 wired into the XR500. I've moved plenty of times in the past and have had numerous routers. So setting up internet isn't new to me. I forwarded the ports needed for Modern Warfare on PS4 and it still didn't make my NAT Type Open in-game. I made sure UPNP is enabled. I have geo filter turned off. I resetted everything multiple times. I'm beginning to think this is a Nighthawk issue and not a PS4 issue. I never had a problem with routers getting over Moderate NAT even if there's a modem/router in-between them and the internet. I know turning on Bridge mode on the modem/router might alleviate that issue but I never had to do this in the past and even Netgear doesn't recommend turning on Bridge mode. I also don't know how I feel about using DMZ servers. I've never done it before but I read that it makes my internet more vulnerable to attacks. Something I also noticed is my game lagging more. I play competitive so I'm in custom games lobbies 90% of the time. I would get noticeable lag spikes where my game freezes for 5 seconds and I would end up somewhere else in the map (usually dead). No one else is experiencing this in the lobby. There's also a noticeable delay/lag with my bullets actually landing on the opponents. And I know this can mean several things but if I can notice it with just a day of playing with people in similar servers then I feel it's legitimate. It's my first time using Duma OS so I won't be surprised if I did something wrong with it. If anyone with more experience can help then I'd greatly appreciate it.
  18. I have just got a XR300 and I am liking it so far. I have watched a load of video's on Youtube about setting it up but all those people have really fast connections. I am getting 24mbps down / 1.7mbps up and that's the fastest my Fibre line supports due to where I live. What is the best QoS settings for a slower connection? Is it still 70% Anti-Bufferbloat and assigning 20%ish download and upload bandwidth allocation to my gaming PC (which I have identified as a 'Playstation' for the Geo filtering)? 20% of 1.7mbps isn't much! I don't game on a console and I want to be able to game smoothly on my PC when other people start watching Netflix and streaming video's from social media apps. Also, do I want to enable ipv6? My ISP supports it but I think it's disabled by default. p.s. I am on the latest firmware. Thanks in advance!
  19. hello guys, i have a nighthawk ac1900 c7000v2 cable modem router and on top of that i have a nighthawk xr300 pro gaming connected to that. Whenever playing call of duty modern warfare i seem to be getting a lot of lag none stop its always skipping or bullets dont register. i believe that its because of bufferbloat not to sure. i am connected to the xr300 from my ps4 wired connection. if anybody could help that would be highly appreciated.
  20. So I've been through all the previous forum threads looking for solutions. I went through the optimal settings guide and did everything it said step by step and I still seem to have a double NAT type (moderate) on my xbox one X. I have my BT home hub 2 ( or smart hub 2 can't remember which but it's the newest one) with wifi still on ( the only device connected to it is a wifi repeater disc that's wired to my smart TV and rarely used for internet anyway) then an ethernet from port 1 of the homehub to port 1 of the NetDuma. From there I have my xbox hard wired in as well as my powerline extender, my playstation (not used) and my brothers PC. Most devices on wifi are connected through powerline adapters that come from the NetDuma. I can't seem to solve the double NAT type issue, also my connection seems to be really unstable on the NetDuma whether connected direct to router or powerline extenders. I have QOS set up with an anti-bufferbloat of 70% and the per device bandwidth set up with it set to not share excess, yet I'm still having issues. I have around 40 down and 10 up and my network monitor on the NetDuma never really shows about 15 mbps usage even at peak usage yet I'm still having issues as is my borther when gaming.

  22. Hey guys, I've been lurking on these forums for a while now though this is only the second time I've posted. Let me start by saying thank you to anyone and everyone whom takes the time to read this, even if you don't know what to make of it, or haven't a piece of helpful information to put forward. Let me also say I have learned so much about networking and technology over the last 3 years searching for a resolution to my problem, and for that I am thankful because I truly am passionate about technology and learning about the underlying mechanics that drive it and even allow it to operate. But with that said, I should have come here sooner looking for help but I'm stubborn and tend to be impatient, and posting in a forum to wait forever for a response seems unattractive as I have had not great experiences with posting on forums in general and receiving help. I'm also autistic and tend to be more of an introverted recluse, so asking for help isn't something that comes easy for me. A brief foot note I'll add in an effort to be as through and helpful as possible. My services are internet only 300/300 symmetrical. Provider of course being Frontier. Network topology is very simple which is as follows, Alcatel Lucent i-211m-l ONT - Nighthawk XR500 - LAN. I've gone down the list of simple common sense troubleshooting recommendations you'd expect from anyone with even the slightest inkling into networking such as, eliminating the possibility of a bad Ethernet cable, running ping plotters to check for oddities in line activity, even doing line quality checks at dslreports.com, and to no avail. From all that I can tell with ping plotter line quality appears great as you'd expect on a fiber optic connection. I can share results of dslreports line quality test or ping plotter if requested, but again no indication as far as I can tell that anything is a miss. One thing I will say though that strikes me as odd, and having read extensively on NAT, especially enjoying the comprehensive and meticulously written article Badmodems has on the subject. Full Cone, Partial Cone, and Port Restricted NAT being the most common ways NAT is implemented, it confuses me that when I forward a port to say my phone to check if it's actually being opened, then do a port scan from say canuseeme, sometimes I get a LAN access from remote in the logs indicating to me that a connection to said port was at least attempted, sometimes I don't, but it never says on the other end that it was successful. It either always says connection timed out, or port closed. Even with NAT Filtering set to open. Which bothers me more than a little. I've also read a little about Teredo regarding Xbox and how Microsoft handles NAT and the implications of needing players to have the ability to connect to one another. I definitely have a few questions regarding that and possibly what Sony's version of Teredo is. My problem has followed me across two ISP's and two routers for three years now. First with spectrum using a Nighthawk R7000, and a Arris Surfboard cable modem I purchased to entirely eliminate ISP equipment from the equation. Now with Frontier Fios, an Nighthawk XR500 and a direct connection to an Alcatel-Lucent i-211m-l ONT. The common denominator being Netgear Nighthawk routers. The issue I'm experiencing is strange to say the least. Every device I own and use I experience "lag" or latency when using said device. A list of those devices includes an Xbox one X, PlayStation 4 Pro, Asus ROG Phone 2, Razer Phone 2, Dell Laptop, and many more I won't arbitrarily list. Suffice it to say it's anything and everything I use. Alongside a very high latency when using any of these devices is a strange phenomenon, where I feel like things on the screen are almost warping and changing size, almost the way say a scaling feature would work. And with that also comes this odd two dimensional quality everything from games to YouTube videos exhibit. To elaborate on that a little more, as a for instance when I am not experiencing the issue (which is very rare) things look amazing in games, be it on my ROG phone 2 playing PUBG Mobile, or on my PlayStation 4 Pro playing Call of Duty. It's like the textures are so alive with depth and detail and the colours appear so much more vibrant, intricate, and present. Strangely enough, I would describe the issue I have with audio in a very similar manner, where all the detail and nuance is gone. I can't hear enemy players in things like PUBG Mobile or Call of Duty for the life of me (literally lol) until it's too late or I'm dead. Sensitivity in games is also very inconsistent, and never feels the same. Whether it's the touch screen of my phone, keyboard and mouse, or a controller. YouTube videos appear pixilated and blurry almost, lacking in visual and audible information. Players in games like Blackout and PUBG Mobile are very difficult for me to spot. And distances are very difficult to gauge, where it seems like things on the map, be it players or objects, appear farther away than they should be. Things like my wingsuit in Blackout are consistently pixelated and fail to properly render in. And lighting and shadows are also very strange with things appearing darker than they should be sometimes, like shaded areas and inside of buildings. Sometimes I'll walk into a structure for instance, like long barn in Blackout right beside red barn, by wagers and silo and it will be dark and oddly lit and suddenly the lighting will change where I can see and it's lit up the way it should be. There are other oddities such as haptic feedback being horribly inconsistent across the board on every Android device I've owned in the last three years. And typing feels very slow and tedious, with what I would also describe as a "lag" or latency regarding the input of characters and haptic response to hitting a key. Again, when things are working properly the small percentile of the time they do, this is not the case and everything feels so responsive and it's effortless to type things out. And on a $1000.00usd phone sporting a Snapdragon 855+ , Adreno 640 GPU, Cortex A-76 architecture, and a prime core clock speed of 2,960 MHz, I would hope the very least I should expect to be a responsive keyboard lol ;D. Anyway I've rambled long enough, and apologize for being long winded. To anyone who reads this, let me thank you once again for doing so regardless of whether you have some helpful piece of wisdom to offer or not. I'm at my wit's end with this issue and it's causing me to go to some very dark places psychologically, so any help is most certainly appreciated. Again from the bottom of my heart, thank you.
  23. Hello, I have been using the router for a while now and not had many problems. but lately it seems that when someone else in the house is watching the firestick tv on the network this is causing huge amounts of lag while I am gaming. I don't understand as it wasn't causing problems before. I have anti-blufferboat as always, share excess unticked, traffic prioritization enabled, everything on 2 percent on QOS except my gaming console which takes the rest. I have been looking at the logs and noticing kill flow due to timeout is coming up alot - Not sure where to start with solving the issue, any help would be appreciated. Also I am having issue with logging in. this forum never remembers my password so i always get locked out and have to wait 15 minutes to change my password. Any fix's for this. Thanks in advance, Shaun
  24. To everyone and anyone with ANY knowledge of DumaOS and the nighthawk XR300, help a fellow gearhead out! Brief backdrop of my current situation. Just purchased a CM700 modem and an XR300 pro gaming router to escape xfinitys stronghold and limitations. I’ve always had an issue with xfinitys hardware! All their modems/routers were “defective” which resulted in poor connection, multiple techs sent out to my home, constant device swaps. So I took the initiative to escape that misery. I was so anxious for my new hardware. Tried optimizing settings on DumaOS but no luck! I game on a PS4 Pro which is hardwired to the XR300. I live in Illinois. I mostly play Fortnite. ISP is Xfinity/150MBPs. My issue is, Geo filtering doesn’t work. Ping is high 30’s. Before I was getting 20-23. . When I try to configure settings via Geo Filter I’m shown “Nil 2.5” “Nil” with an adjustable bar. And under that “Nil” with a checkmark. I pinned geo filter to my dashboard to monitor my ping and it doesn’t measure my latency/ping, for example I should be shown “12ms”, instead it’ll indicate “Nil”, no actual values. Someone, anyone, help! I purchased these for the sake of optimizing performance! I feel like I’m not getting the most out of my new hardware! Also, if anyone can suggest specific configurations/settings, it would greatly be appreciated! This is all very new to me! Thank you to you all in advance! Looking forward to your replies! Ozzi
  25. So, I was requested to post in here to get better results. I am having serious lag and connection issues with the netgear XR500 and trying to resolve the lag issues in APex. I have some games that I will jump right into and hav zero lag and feel like butter! but then sometimes it's the worst. Guys just walk right through me. My pings are around 35 to the server. but there is no way thats correct. I need someone to talk to probably on the phone to walk me through this.. I am so frustrated with this product.
