XR500 High Ping Under Load (Connection benchmark)
I've been getting high ping under load during upload (400ms+) .... So last night I disabled port scan / dos protection and I also enabled respond to internet ping and I finally got an A+ score (24ms). This was around 2:30 in the morning. Well I just tested again tonight (10:00pm) because I was getting some packet burst icons and micro stutters pretty frequently while pc gaming and I'm back to the normal D score with horrible ping while under load (upload). Maybe disabling those firewall protections wasn't the issue as it's back. I've tried moving the sliders to various percentages both upload and download on qos>congestion control with no change. Any ideas?
