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
Since I have had the Superhub 3, I have had nothing but problems with it. Originally it was the 'port flapping' issue which seems to have been resolved now. However I have been noticing that during gaming and VoIP calls, I get frequent latency spikes. As I use the Superhub 3 in modem mode, I assumed it was the Netduma router I was using, so I switched that out and it made no difference. Therefore I browsed the VM forums and found this.. http://community.virginmedia.com/t5/Gaming-Support/Hub-3-Compal-CH7465-LG-TG2492LG-and-CGNV4-Latency... There seems to be an issue with the Superhub 3 chipset, which causes latency spikes under load. I never had this problem with the Superhub 2 which I had in modem mode with the Netduma. I don't think VM or Intel will be resolving this issue anytime soon (I believe the port flapping issue took several months to resolve). So I would suggest asking them to exchange the Superhub 3 for a Superhub 2 ac (or just 2). Another post below, states that the Intel CPU erroneously could be dropping around 6% of your packets causing at least 200ms spikes! (worth a read). http://www.fudzilla.com/news/processors/42312-intel-s-puma-6-chip-set-falls-asleep P.S. This issue may be present in some Comcast routers (Xfinity), so check the second link to see if this affects you.
Hi, I get good pings on my BT Infinity 1 broadband, but I would get a nicer deal if I were to move to Sky (I have Sky TV already). Just wondered if anyone here has made the switch BT to Sky (or vice versa), and what happened to your ping, went up, down, stayed the same etc? I realise Sky uses the BT infer structure but wondered if anyone saw a difference one way or the other. Thanks in advance for any info.
