well I was just on holiday at a relatives place in a different country and it would have been absolutely ideal. Using two home networks I don't see why the performance would be crap? The service works really well on home networks.

 

 

before or after the latency makes you stab your eyes out?

You say you are using a Vodafone version router. Just to clarify, your ISP is Vodafone?

I get across town latency that is better than most people see between 2 wifi devices on their lans most of the time. But you are talking about countries. Perhaps Australia might be within the realms where a casual might not have a problem with it... But their internet is so bad there I dont think it will work.

 

Even wired across my network none of these xbox or steam remote play things work well enough, and that is with sub millisecond pings over wired gigabit. Just feels like drunk playing like when you have an office computer grade wireless mouse or some genius has put a router beside the console so the controller is jammed most of the time.

I get that the latency may be bad. But the latency is really bad when it straight up doesn't even work. If the latency was bad I'd just play slow stategy games orrpgs or something. Would still be awesome to be able to play my xbox games wherever I go on my surface pro. :( I just need help making it work because it doesn't seem like the router is opening the ports and I don't know quite enough to figure it out.

I thought that too, then I just started getting Xbox Game Pass games for my Surface and playing them locally.  Problem solved.

Hg659, not the ultrahub? Sure you’re doing port forwarding and not port triggering? I’ve had it work before, and some days not work unless i do a reset and restart.

If you’re on fibre and get a third party router like edgerouter then you dont have to sit doubting if your isp router does what it says it should be doing

I have game pass but I only have a surface Pro 4 and it can't run many of the games very well.

I am on fibre. How much is it to get another router?

Guarantee they'll run better than streaming the Xbox externally.  Especially if you're doing the same as you stated earlier - i.e. reverting to RTS type games to fit within the constraints of performance.

Like, the hg659 is not overly crap. It’s pretty good for what you get. The way I had it working for when I hosted Killing Floor 2 servers was to have an entry for each range of ports pointing to my pc’s specific static IP, save everything and restart the router. Check config again, host server and test with mates.

You can even assign the forwarding by MAC as the huawei will list/remember devices, don’t even need to set a static if you dont want to
