My setup - Tips and Advice?

Greetings, i am fairly new to the forum and was looking for assistance to make my connection as stable as possible as i play PS4 competitively.

My setup is as follows:
Tecnicolor 4400 Modem -
Cable: 940/40 speeds - Actual - 935/39 at 15-20 ping

Netgear R8000-
Turned off SIP ALG
Turned to “Open’ setting
Custom wifi settings(name/password)
Newest firmware of V1.0.4.18_10.1.49
Time set to eastern
All else is standard

3 PS4s, Desktop, Xbox one are connected via wired
Only two PS4’s and desktop are usually connected online at once

I am running a 100ff CAT 5e from downstairs to upstairs bedroom connected to a gigabit switch upstairs which connects the systems and PC.

What can you all suggest to make my experience better? I absolutely love my netgear products and would like to keep them. Am i missing something? Can i do anything better? I will appreciate any and all advice/tips. Thank you and sorry for the long post

Hello. I an having light spikes. So it will fluctuate from lets say from 15 ping to 55 ping on a quiet connection. Or 15 to 30 to 55. There are times where my connection drops to about half of what it should be

I could be a ISP issue are you able to post the event logs and power levels of the modem? typically you can get to the modem settings by visiting 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.100.1

Hello. I tried logging in. I do not have access to the modem so i am unable to post. I will say i have 13-15 devices in my household on. But all my stuff is wired that i personally use and all else is wifi. Anything else i could do?

Hello and sorry for the late reply. Every time i try to do the test it can't do my upload speed. Is there a fix to this?

I managed to finally log in to my modem after digging deeply for it.

That doesn't help any. I've done a ton of research. I have tried just about everything. You make it seem like the product is flawed. Why not say, "buy a new router"?
