I am in trouble on my internet gaming! - Page 4

post #31 of 43
ATT isn't very friendly toward gamers, I'm willing to bet they are the problem here. Do you have any games that show something called "NAT" when starting up multiplayer? Have you set your setting correctly in the modem or are they default?
One thing I would try is setting up openDNS, not sure about your area, but around here ATT's DNS servers are terrible, and they use them to try and block gaming on the basic service here(1mb DL speeds).

The asshats have a moderate NAT default. I can't stand ATT.

You see, I am a hardcore gamer with all three of the best online gaming systems- 360, PS3, PC. I have upgraded to the fastest possible router, gold plated ethernet cables, and super short cords where applicable. I am using a 27" 1ms response monitor. I run my 360 on VGA @ 1366x768, and I use my Turtle Beach for sound. I am doing everything in my power to have a connection advantage.

Problem: My folks have AT&T for their ISP. Great, but there is not access to their "U-verse" 24Mbps connection here. The maximum speed they provide is 6Mbps!!! ****!!! All of the guys I play Gears 3 with have a connection of around 50-75Mbps. I am getting the shaft here. What can I honestly do? Is paying for seperate internet the only way?
Hate to burst your bubble bro but you better get used to terrible internet. The Army is going to send you places that you'll be lucky if they even have internet. Also, if you get stationed overseas you'll be paying a premium price for the worst internet you've ever had, no lie. 6 Mb down isn't that bad, enjoy it while you got it IMO.

Also, don't join the Army if you can manage to get into either the Navy or the Air Force. I don't recommend the Army lifestyle to anyone unless they fully know what they are getting themselves into.... G/L

The asshats have a moderate NAT default. I can't stand ATT.
You can control the NAT through your modem

Unfortunately I can't, I'm forced to use ATT's modem, I'm locked out and they get full access. If I try to use my own they shut off the connection. My NAT is open up until the point I start up a game, then it normally switches to moderate or strict, sometimes I get lucky though.

As long as your not using your equipment you should be able to change it, its not normally something set by the ISP, its a security feature built into modems.

My brother served ten years and did two tours in Afghanistan. Now he is a securtiy contractor. I scored well on my ASVAB and I'm going to go in as 18X which is Special Forces enlistment option. My parents wanted me to join the Air Force, but I want combat. Can't talk me out of that one.

Sounds like you know what is in store for you, good luck with your enlistment(s)!

Hi FightingEdge, my

You're wasting money on expensive cables for absolutely nothing. I highly doubt you could saturate the bandwidth that cat6 provides (or even 5e for that matter). You will need large RAID arrays on multiple machines to 'need' that type of wire.

Keep in mind also that the cabling only helps "inside" of your network. Your WAN will only saturate about 10% of cat5e.

Two recommendations:

1) Hardwire the lappy (ie use an ethernet cable) instead of going wireless.

2) spend a couple of bucks a month on better or additional WAN access.

Good luck.

EDIT: I admire your motivation to join the military (former Marine here).

Thanks for that. Also, the Cat7 cables I got cost me all of $10. I am not concerned about the money. I have my full time job taking care of kids, and a part time pushing carts at Wal-Mart just to stay in shape.

I enjoy spending money on gaming and internet speeds. Whatever I can do to MAXIMIZE my gaming is just fine with me. Now I just need to find a dang ISP that will compliment my style.

I live in the 64804 zip code, if anyone can find an ISP ranging in the 50Mbps area, let me know.
