DWR needs to be clean to work. If you're not getting water beading off the jacket, try ununder a tap in the sink, it might need a cleaning. Adding a bit of heat to refresh the DWR can work as well. For chemical refreshing I'd avoid nikwax. Using a more similar treatment to the original synthetic DWR would be better in my mind and I've been told that it doesn't rinse out as well as others. I've used Grangers spray on with OK results on DWR reproofing nylon and polyester. I think Arteryx sells a rebadged version of Revivex from their webshop. That could be another option.
