Xr500 or xr700? Which to choose?

Recommended Posts

Hi all, im bit confuse to buy xr500 or xr700, i read all specification already. But what i expect  from xr700 which  xr500 isnt having? Few more question:-

1) does i get low ping on wifi connection too? Like playing on phone (pubg)?

2) I'm using a cheap moden under 30$( by internet provider)  and i get 50to80ms in pubg on phone, what i expect from 290$ xr500 and other from rx700? And my connection  is 300mbps downloading and 25mpbs uploading speed

3) geo filter work on phone games too? Or pc games with wires connection? 

4)  do i need modem or doesn't?

Hi there

The WiFi is very powerful on both, so you should get great coverage and speed throughout your home. This will help a lot vs a standard router when gaming wirelessly.

Bandwidth speeds are not that important for games (they only use max 1mbps). Your Ping in PUBG is most likely due to the server you are playing on. But having great wireless will make sure that WiFi issues are much less likely to cause you to lag. 

Geo-Filter works on mobile too - it just depends on the game.

You will still need your modem. You just connect your router to your modem.

For a more general discussion, see this thread:

Do you mean a fibre connection? You will need a modem for this, but it should come from your internet provider. 

 

If yiure looking king for a new modem, then most modems work fine. There’s a community thread here discussing the best:

Try this: in the device manager, click on your phone and set is as a console instead. Setting it up as a PlayStation or Xbox should trick the Geo-Filter into believing it's one of those devices, and the Geo-Filter might work with it as a result. (You'd have to remove it and re-add it to the Geo-Filter when you do this).

We haven't tested Fortnite Mobile with the Geo-Filter that thoroughly so you'll have to let us know how you get on. The Geo-Filter is mainly built for console / PC matchmaking games.

For a start your Geo-Filter radius is way too restrictive, you also may be too zoomed into the map. What country do you live in? It might be that there is not a server within your country which means that we could force you the closest one but it might not be 20ms. Also have you setup QoS yet? If not and you have other people using your connection that will negatively impact your ping. Setup QoS with Anti-Bufferbloat set to Always and with 70% on both download and upload sliders.

Okay well that will be the issue, I don't believe they have a server in India so it sounds like you're probably getting the best ping available. Your base ping is 12-25ms which means your game ping will be on top of that so they likely have a lower base ping. What do you mean by download game first?

Yes do i have to download game or not to check sever host or ping. 

I set geo filter to max radius and no host sever shown, ( checking without downloading games)

 Hmmm ty.. does this  work with  mobile games too?   Im playing pubg on phone.. i try this  while  open game in phone doesnt work ...  when i click( profiles)on geo filter with no matter how much radius (111km or4200km) it automatically make radius to 6000plus km  is this a glitch?

1 more thing if i use  filtering mode i got 300plus ms and in speculating  mode i get 40plus ms why? Filtering mode meant to less my ping( i try with all radius 111,500,1000,2000,3000).

You should go to the Device Manager and click on your phone, then set it as a console. Doing this could allow you to use the Geo-Filter with it. (After doing this, remove your phone from the Geo-Filter then add it again).

In Spectating Mode, no filtering is happening. It's possible you could get that 300ms+ server on Spectating Mode, you just got lucky with 40ms. PUBG is tricky to use the Geo-Filter with anyway, but try a radius of 2000km and Strict Mode on.

With Filtering Mode on, do you find a game? Are you able to connect? Tick 'Auto Ping Host' and see what your ping is using that. With Strict Mode on it won't be possible for the game to host you outside your radius. Is this ping reading shown on DumaOS itself?

Hi again..  i reset my router,  did all setting again and this time  geo filter shows me sever. But only 4 host china, europe. America and South  america, no other host. 

Nearest host from china shows 173 to 175ms (in geofilter ping option)... but on mobile  pubg asia sever show 40 to60 ms and while playing pubg on mobile it remains and constant between 40to 60ms ... i think something geo filter isnt picking up

Can u guys find any other solution? If its possible.

Two more question:-

What is FLUSH CLOUD? 

And when i  selected profiles option in geo filter  it says unreal engine (pubg fornite) what's unreal engine means here? 

 I am happy with router all over performance  but ms is my main concern:(

The server location where you're getting the low ping is that where you've set your home location to on the map and put your radius just around this location? If not you need to do that and thats where you'll be going wrong.

Flush cloud reloads the Geo-Filter database.

Unreal Engine is just the game engine that the game was made using

I live in india  and i closet sever or host  it show  from china no sever shown in india so i try two way none effective:-

1) before i use india location and put 4200 radius where i get china host (closet one)... still get 40 to60ms.

2) today i use china as location where the host show and i get 110 to 120ms in game and  on geo filter ping show 230 to 240ms. Why both geo filter and while playing game ping doesnt match?

Bro does it work on pubg mobile or im just wasting mine and your time? Can you test it yourself and see if it work on pubg mobile ? Cuz im losing hope now :(

Hi bro here  screen shot and details 

1) I set my phone as console in device manger (xbox one  or ps4, i tried both lsame result) 

2) filtering mode on  and qos 70 %  (always antibufferbloat)

1st screenshot from my mobile, on asia sever it shows 54ms. With or without filtering mode on  i get same ms on wifi and  on mobile 4g network  i get 60to80ms.(expect set location as china)

I try to change  few things in geo filter and there result:-

1) Selecting india(north india where i lives) and set radius 500km, i get 40to70ms in game even no sever or host shown in radius.

When i select 4200km radius to get china sever from india location. ping show  in geo filter is180ms but when i play game i get 40to70ms even if i allow or not or deny this ping.

2)I am also try to set my location in china where sever is shown put location on same point, radius2000km or change to any number, then ping shows 180ms but when i play game i get 300to400ms even if i allow this ping

  Can you please tell me if i miss any point? If not,can you try to find any other method?  Or can you make a small video about it? Like you made vedio on youtube getting low ping using xr500

I think I see the issue, there is only one server per region on mobile. As you're able to select the region in game there is no need for you to use the Geo-Filter to filter as it will put you on the server region you select in game

Mean i hv no luck:/ .. howcome i get 50ms in game  then if sever from China  show 180ms in geo filter ?

It's probably mislocated on the Geo-Filter so it's pinging a different server. If the game says 50 then thats great!
