I live in San Francisco, practically right next to a server that is on the geo-filter, however i can never find a match very quickly/the ping in the game is always, any tips on getting fast searches and also low ping games since i am right next to the server thanks guys

Welcome to the forum!

When you're in-game, does it show you as being connected to the server you live close to?

Could you also provide a screenshot of how you've currently got your Geo-filter setup?

So as in does the Geo-Filter show the host as being close to your location. Use Ping Heatmap and find the lowest ping server, it's possible it's mislocated on the map and so by adjusting your filter to get that server the search may be faster.

hi there Net Duma frasier,

 

ok, so in the ping heatmap, should i just proximate my search radius around those pings on the ping hetmap?

this is what the ping heat map looks like, I have my proximity search set around these areas as you can see in the previous screenshot, however, it still takes long times to load image.thumb.png.97f5ea6c1dc064622fa250c55691e496.png

See if it finds a game faster after doing this:

  1. Quit the game completely
  2. Remove device from the Geo-Filter 
  3. Resync/flush the cloud from the Geo-Filter Map menu
  4. Re-add the device to the Geo-Filter
  5. Set up the Geo-Filter how you like
  6. Wait 2 minutes
  7. Boot up the game

Also one more thing, on the ping heatmap, I have enabled the ping to schedule every hour on call of duty warzone, is that a good idea? I have also added them to lists, is that a good idea too? lol sorry for 21 questions

No worries at all, that's what we are here for! Whether that is a good idea is subjective really, it's a complete choice to do so, I suppose it depends what you'll do with that as to whether it's a good idea. Are you going to use the ping data to force servers that are specifically pinging low at the time or are you just going to look out of interest for example.

Looks like you've got a game server there so the connection has been made, may just be because it's during peak time that servers are slammed. I've also noticed you're on an older version, upgrade to latest and it may be better https://community.netgear.com/t5/Nighthawk-Pro-Gaming-DumaOS-3-0/New-Firmware-v2-3-2-120-XR500/td-p/2071196/
