Need help with slow internet/ lag in games/ slow dl etc

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Hello everyone, MY internnet has been acting funny lately, and im not sure where else to post this so here goes:
Lately i have been experiencing lag in all the games i play which comes in little 1-2 second waves. It all started about 4 months ago when I started LOL lol.
Anyways this is my netalzyer log and a speedtest, does anyone have any ideas? I noticed my speed is only 2mpbs, is that just too slow for online gaming?
Would getting a higher isp package like 8mpsb or 15mbps help? thanks

I play bc2 and counter strike source on about the same internet connection.
Your ping is also good.
Do you have wifi at your house?
When my girlfriend gets on my games will lag and my ping shoots up to 1000.
Bu as long as nobody gets on its great.

Netalyzer shows that you have some packet loss. I think that's causing the lag. Try connecting directly to your modem (thus bypassing the router) and see if you are still getting packet loss. If you are, call your ISP and they should fix the problem (I'm assuming you are renting a modem from your ISP so replacing the modem should be covered by them). If not, then it's your router that needs settings changes or replacement.

Also, check your signal levels... go to: 192.168.100.1

Have you updated the firmware of your router?
Also the drivers for your Nic?
Are you using 1 or both nics? A
re you team them?
Checked each cable or tried a different one?
Also are you on DSL or Cable and what plan do you have to know the max limit you have?

I know lots of question, good to do to pinpoint.

Before you call them run the ping test on this site: http://pingtest.net to make sure that there is indeed packet loss (you need Java for this test). It will let you know what percentage of packet loss you have. Then call them and let them know about it.
