Battlefield 4, and new Gateway problems

Hello, about 2 months ago I had got the Rogers Wi-Fi Modem and my ping for playing games such as League Of Legends was at a stable 85-88, however that modem was giving my router trouble because it wasn't working well with it. In battlefield 4, when I tried to join a game it would always lead me to the same server. So, I went back and replaced the Wi-Fi Modem to the Advanced Wi-Fi Modem which was the best one they had. This time, it had no problem  with my router, but I still kept joining the same battlefield 4 server and my ping in League Of Legends went up from 85 to 97. I am not sure why this is happening because I was expecting to get the same ping as with the other Modem, and was expecting to solve my problems with Battlefield 4. Is there any way I could fix this issues?  Before all of this, I had the old cisco gateway which was provided by rogers.

 

(Advanced Wi-FI Modem is the Hitron CGN3-ROG)

That its doing it on BOTH modems.. sounds like your battlefield 4 issue.. might be something else.

As for the ping part... some people have noticed with the CGN3 (advanced modem) that the pings are a LITTLE higher (not huge, but like 10+ like you have noticed.. than normally would be.

Anyone that has put their OWN router in , with the unit in bridge mode.. says that it disapears... so i am guessing its some lag, etc on the CGN3's routing side.

Okay, I'm a bit confused.

 

Can you give us a list of every device between the coax cable and your computer running BF4? and whether they are wired or wireless?

 

e.g. CGN3 (bridged) <-> Router X <-> Linksys Ethernet switch <-> computer running Intel GbE wireless card

Hey, thanks for trying to help me out so far. @VivnienM CGN3 (Gateway;wireless/wired and is connected to my computer) <-> TP-LINK N600 Router (Wireless) 

 

In terms of the Battlefield 4 issue with the modem, it started happening with the 2 Modems that were made by Hitron: (Wifi-Modem 2, CGN3-ROG). I have tried repairing my game and nothing seemed to work; i even tried reinstalling the game.  I also have tried porting the required ports in Battlefield 4 if i was experiencing issues.

Okay, take a deep breath, and let's start examining this more closely.

 

First, what did you have before you got the CGN2? (The first Hitron modem)?

 

And is the TP-Link set up strictly as an access point, with the CGN2/CGN3s doing all your 'routing'/NAT?

Before I got my CGN2, I had a SMC networks modem.

 

Yes, the TP-Link is set up as an access point, with no devices connected using the ethernet cable. 

Re: Battlefield 4, and new Gateway problems

Is the DHCP server turned off in the TP-Link router and have you considered running the CGN3 in Bridge mode with the TP-Link running in router mode.

No, the DHCP server is not turned off in the TP-Link router so as UPnP. I think I have probably fixed the problems for the TP-Link for it needed a firmware update. As for the CGN3, I did run it on bridge mode but that didn't seem to fix problems. The ping still seemed to stay. And yet again, I am still joining the same server in battlefield 4...... it's frustrating.

Are these signal strengths fine for the Advanced Wi-Fi modem?

Are you as well able to get the IP of the servers your trying to connect to?

Then can you do a traceroute and pathping to those addresses?

Just to eliminate something going on inbetween rogers, or even along the way. See if the issue more stems outside the house sort of thing.

No, I am not able to get the IP of the serves I am trying to connect to. It only gives me that information....

Re: Battlefield 4, and new Gateway problems

How does Battlefield 4 assign gamers to its servers?

 



Re: Battlefield 4, and new Gateway problems

I don't exactly know how they assign players, but I do know that it is based on your region you live in (for best ping and experience). I do know that they have ports that I can forward if UPnP is not enabled.

Re: Battlefield 4, and new Gateway problems

Ok, so reading through the thread, your complaint is that you keep ending up on the same server, no matter what you do, is that correct?  I'm assuming here that you want to go to another server.  What happened before you had either Hitron modem?  Were you able to choose any server that you wanted?

 

An unrelated issue is your modem - TP-Link configuration.  if you are going to use the TP-Link as an access point, you should either give it it's own IP address and IP range, both of which are outside the IP range of the CGN3 in order to avoid any conflicts with the CGN3, or give it an IP address outside the address range of the CGN3 and disable the DHCP in the TP-Link router.  Allow the CGN3 to act as the DHCP server for everything, which also avoids any IP address conflict.  With its own IP address, you should still be able to log into it if any changes are needed.  (How many times can a person say IP in one paragraph 🙂 )

 

The one configuration you should try is bridging the CGN3, running the TP-Link in full router mode and use port forwarding with UPNP disabled.  The CGN3 has its own latency issues, which may be why you are ending up in the same server.  By going to bridge mode with the TP-Link running as a router, that might make enough of a difference so that you are able to use other servers.

 

Also keep in mind that there is an impending firmware update which, according to rumour, should be released before the end of the year, maybe sooner.  Hopefully this will address latency issues in the CGN3.
