Hello I'm having trouble with one game I have my radius 500 miles and fortnite sits there at the beginning page and has the circle of death loading forever. Other games work.  I know other people with an XR500 like mine and they get right in. Is mine defective? Thanks

Do you see anything blocked on the map when this happens at all? Your radius is quite small as well so I would recommend upping that a little bit.

I changed it to 1000 miles no change. And 2 servers for fortnite are within that range if you Google it they are in Ohio and Virginia I am in PA. I don't have anything blocked. Tried a factory reset on XR500 and reset up. Trying today with a new Comcast modem and I will report back. I am switching to a xb6 Comcast modem from the old style today

This router making sure I am connected to the best server and taking longer to load in to the game doesn't make sense. If anything it would.be a quicker que you would think. Why I'm thinking maybe defect.

The way Fortnite works is that it only attempts a connection to the server once it is loading into that run-around pre game lobby and so that is the only chance the router has to block it. That's why it can take awhile to get the server you want as you'll have to wait then research. A quicker method that some people use is to switch to Spectating Mode, go into the game, look where the server is and if it isn't the one you want then quit and research.

Yes but why would the Comcast router allow me right in when both say I am connected to NA EAST server

So assuming using the Geo-Filter it puts you on NA East which is within your radius it will load you into the game slower than if you were connected to the ISP router?

Correct. Both connect me to the same na east server. But isp router gets you right in. Duma takes a long time sits at the loading screen and sometimes says failed

Definitely not. Not the two fortnite servers that I'm close to. I would notice that they would be in the circle. I don't remember seeing any triangles on geofilter.

I'll have to try that. What does that do? Disable geofilter?

It doesn't filter any of the connections but still allows you to see where the servers are and monitor the ping etc to the server.

You will connect to a server within your region still due to the in game region selection but this is just a test to see whether you connect quicker.
