XR500 - APEX LEGENDS ON PS5

Hello, good day to you.

 

I have an XR500 connected to a CM1200.

 

What would be the best set up for Apex Legends on PS5?  I have tried the Geo Filter, but it will only work if the game will select the server within the selected filtered area. If the game picks a server outside of the area, it will kick me back into the lobby. I have port forwarded the router for my PS5 and for Apex Legends. I tried it this way and I also tried UPnP without the port forwarding option. I felt as though I was getting murdered out there with what felt like one or two bullets versus an increment of bullets. I just kept playing until a friend of mine mentioned that I died quickly several times. I live in Florida and the closest server to me would be in South Carolina but rarely is it ever selected. The current firmware version on the router is XR500 V2.3.2.134. What would you recommend? Please advise and thanks in advance.

I can't see your screenshots but I think that's the way the game matchmaking works unfortunately - it doesn't restart the search. What is the average ping on the Geo-Filter compared to in game?

With the server the game assigns me to, the ping on the Geo-Filter shows 54 but I've been receiving an in-game ping of 70-90 on average.

That difference is processing delay, 70 would be okay but the 90 would be high - indicates the server is under load. Does the server selection on the game match where your Geo-Filter radius is covering?

95% percent of the time, it is not within the Geo-Filter.

It may be the servers are mislocated on the map when that happens, if you disabling Filtering Mode so you can still see and ping servers on the map and just let the game decide (after selecting your server on the game), regardless of where the server appears on the map ping it, does it show a ping you would expect for the server you selected in game or is it too high?
