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!

Oh. I’ve also contacted NETGEAR support. I’ve factory reset the XR300 and had them reflash. Awaiting a response. Running current firmware-1.0.3.34_10.3.27.

Hi Ozzi, welcome to the forums!

That "nil" error you're talking about is a known bug, it seems that numbers aren't displaying correctly in the ping graph.

In my email to you I asked you to check you're on the latest version, but it seems you are. Maybe download it manually from the following link and upload it just in case: https://www.netgear.com/support/product/xr300.aspx#Firmware Version 1.0.3.34 

Regarding your ping, we'll probably need to adjust your settings a bit. If you have access to a PC i'd recommend running PingPlotter using the following guide so that we can see what kind of ping you're getting: https://forum.netduma.com/topic/23881-ping-plotter-quick-guide/

The ping could be caused by other users of your network in your house, or it could be a dodgy connection to the game server. PingPlotter will help us to narrow it down. Leave it running on your PC for a few minutes and send a screenshot.

All the best,
Alex
