Can't get rid of Moderate NAT Type with XR500. And game feels laggier than before.

Recommended Posts

I'd say my knowledge is above average when it comes to tech/internet stuff. I can usually troubleshoot pretty well given I can Google almost anything. But I've completely exhausted my resources and don't know what to do anymore.

For starters, here's what I got. I have the 1000 down package from Cox. I have their modem/router plugged to the wall. And my XR500 plugged into their modem/router. Then I have my PS4 wired into the XR500. 

I've moved plenty of times in the past and have had numerous routers. So setting up internet isn't new to me. I forwarded the ports needed for Modern Warfare on PS4 and it still didn't make my NAT Type Open in-game. I made sure UPNP is enabled. I have geo filter turned off. I resetted everything multiple times. I'm beginning to think this is a Nighthawk issue and not a PS4 issue.

I never had a problem with routers getting over Moderate NAT even if there's a modem/router in-between them and the internet. I know turning on Bridge mode on the modem/router might alleviate that issue but I never had to do this in the past and even Netgear doesn't recommend turning on Bridge mode. I also don't know how I feel about using DMZ servers. I've never done it before but I read that it makes my internet more vulnerable to attacks.

Something I also noticed is my game lagging more. I play competitive so I'm in custom games lobbies 90% of the time. I would get noticeable lag spikes where my game freezes for 5 seconds and I would end up somewhere else in the map (usually dead). No one else is experiencing this in the lobby. There's also a noticeable delay/lag with my bullets actually landing on the opponents. And I know this can mean several things but if I can notice it with just a day of playing with people in similar servers then I feel it's legitimate.

It's my first time using Duma OS so I won't be surprised if I did something wrong with it. If anyone with more experience can help then I'd greatly appreciate it.

Did you just plug in the xr500 to the modem/router without bridge mode and that's it? You will get performance issues and double NAT if a router is not bridged. If it was only a modem then there is no need to use bridge but a modem/router needs to be bridged so that it acts as a modem.

Hey, welcome to the forum!

As above, if the CoX modem/router is in router mode then you will have double NAT/moderate NAT issues - that's just what happens when you put two routers together without adjusting settings on the first router. I would suggest you bridge the cox. Also you only mentioned having the PS4 connected to the XR - is that right? If so ALL devices should be connected to the router so the QoS can control your network effectively.

Any way to fix this? Current firmware on XR500. Reset done.
