NightmareOfNighthawk Posted April 3, 2019 Share Posted April 3, 2019 Hallo everyone. I have been using the Nighthawk XR500 router for a while now and I am very pleased with the gaming experience that it brings to console gaming with the QOS, GeoFiltering etc. I can manage my home network to get the best gaming experience without neglecting any devices on my network. I currently want to use the HybridVPN feature to be able to connect to lobbies in the USA or anywhere else in the world where the players have a wider variety of Blackout modes to choose from to play. In South Africa where i live, we only get one or at the most 2 different Blackout modes to choose from. Currently we can choose Alcatraz or Quads. It has been said that South Africa is limited to game modes due to the fact that we don’t have a player base large enough to fill up all the game modes for blackout( but then just show is how many people are in the different modes and we can choose). Be that as it may, I am using the recommended PureVPN that the router suggests and i set it up to connect to the USA Houston location. I get connection and i can enter the game mode selection area for blackout and i see all the other modes available which is not available to us in SA. But when i deploy to find a game i just can’t get a game found, the screen just searches endlessly. I don’t have my console setup with a static IP nor in the DMZ of the router.I have my geofilter set to cover the US and tried having the whole map covered in the geofilter. Can anyone please assist me? I am not sure if this is a setting issue or a game matching issue? The first picture is the South African Blackout game modes taken before the Alcatraz update and the send picture is when i’m Using the VPN to connect to Houston. You’ll see the difference in the modes. Can someone please advice on how to get this to work. As i said, i can connect, select any game mode, but just can’t find a game.
