Hi, 

just got my new internet connection with a static ip provided by my isp. Want to use my R2 but ISP provided me a nokia modem cum router which is compulsory to use. I want to configure my R2 through the modem provided by my isp. Just want to know which is the best way to connect my R2 with the modem provided by my isp. 
 

A help would be highly appreciated! 🙂

Hey, welcome to the forum!

Just connect them together, then copy the WAN IP from the R2 System Information page and set that as static/reserved on the modem and also enter it into the modem DMZ. Would recommend disabling that WiFi as well so everything connects to the router, then you're good to go!

I am confused a bit.

my current configuration as under:

my r2 is connected to my isp modem via bridge mode & I have configured r2 via static ip given by my isp (snap attached). 

I just want to know that which option is viable. Configuring static ip on the router provided by my isp or on the r2.

pls note I am not talking about dmz or assigning static ip to my console. I am talking about connecting r2 with the main router modem provided by my isp.

Forgot to mention about the dns. My isp has its own dns. Will google dns enhance the gameplay ? & if I override the dns do I need to put the same dns in ps5 settings too?

DNS can slightly speed up website loading times but it is unlikely to have an affect on gaming. As the R2 is in bridge mode if you override the DNS on the R2 then all devices connected will use that DNS, no need to input it on each device

That's actually a really good result! I don't think you'd be able to get it much better than that.

But as I can see there is a lot of variation. I am feeling lagged. While playing core dying like hardcore. 1 shot death

It's almost identical to your base ping so it can't get much better, what are your QoS settings? Can you provide a screenshot?

That all looks good, are the 'Download packets' and 'upload packets' both illuminated consistently with a red light while you're playing?

What is the average ping of the server you're connected to in Geo-filter when playing?

Hi Fraser,

 

I am getting 60-70 ms when I get connected to singapore servers.

Yes the download & upload packets are red as visible in the pic. They are constantly red, not blinking while playing.

OK, are there any closer servers that you can connect to in Geo-filter? 60-70ms ping may be the cause of your issues here.

The nearest sever to Kolkata, India is Singapore. 

If you check Ping Heatmap, are there any other low-ping servers than the one you typically play on.
