give all y'all a suggestion if you live in the U.S not sure if the DNS will work for anyone, with different ISP, or living in different regions of the world, to change your DNS in the XR500 to 9.9.9.9 for the first DNS, and 149.112.112.1 for the secondary, including changing it on your console PS4 / Xbox one if your having trouble with hit detection, registration, it has worked for me to get one shot kills on BO3 and WW2 PS4 much crisper hit detection, with the Quad94 DNS, the 1.1.1.1 DNS works for me as well for hit detection, but increases my ms ping, because of the DDOS protection it has, 9.9.9.9 doesn't increase my ping.

 

with my Fiber 1gb up and down with my ISP data center down the street, gives me a crappy set of automatic DNS

DNS can greatly affect responsiveness/lag.  It's always best to run DNSBenchmark to see what the optimal DNS server is for your area.  Or you can do like me and dive down the servemyhome forums and figure out how to run a docker with a DNSResolver in it.  I'm Experimenting with pfSense and unRaid now to build a Caching server for my home network  :rolleyes:

 DNS has no effect on ping whatsoever. It is nonsense. DNS provides name resolution services and that is it. Nothing more and nothing less.

Your internet connection does not go through the DNS server, nor would routing through it improve your speed as chances are you will be going through several other connections (potentially on the wrong side of the world) before heading back to where you wanted to go. This does not happen normally anyway.

Ok then know it all, do me this little test and you tell me if you could notice a distinct improvement. Use your ISP’s DNS servers manually on an xbox console and check the detailed network statistics. Then test using cloudflare’s 1.1.1.1 and 1.0.0.1. I bet that 9/10 people notice a 20-30 second decrease in latency. Care to explain that Mr WorldWideWeb expert!?!

The real answer lies within the amount of hops it takes between your router to x.x.x.x (destination)

 

If you run a tracert 9.9.9.9 and it takes more than 6 hops between 192.168.1.1 - 9.9.9.9 then you're wasting your valuable energy & time. What we're looking for in DNS resolution are the least amount of hops, thus creating the least amount of latency round trip.

DNS has 1 job and that is to translate a website address ie bbc.co.uk into an ip address 151.101.128.81 . Not sure that games consoles use any website addresses so no converting needs to take place.

DNS is for network address translation. Although it can improve web surfing dramatically it does naff all for gaming as DNS is not involved at all in the gaming process.
