New router and now BF3 lags

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
So i bought a new TEW-673GRU router from newegg the other day cause it was cheap and i was thinking its time for a new router...so it arrived today and i set it up and got all my devices connected without any issues...kept most of the settings the stock just change some non-essential stuff to what i had on my previous router (which is a Buffalo WHR-54G) and setup wifi security and all that crap

so tonight i was bored and decided id play a few rounds of BF3...so i get on to a server ive played before (just last week) and started running around and i noticed every couple seconds i would get a little rubber banding...not too bad but noticeable...so i figured my connection to the server was weak and so i tried another server i frequent...same issue...minor rubber banding but enough to be noticeable but on this server i notice i was getting killed without being shot at or getting any of the tell tale signs of dying...so i check the routers settings and checked a few other things and decided to hook up the old router and see if it was the router or the game or computer or what....hooked it up and everything was just fine...back to the way it was before the new router...no rubber banding...no dying my invisible bullets

so im sorta at a loss for what could be the issue...now granted networking has NEVER been my strong suit and its 3am in the morning so ive only done some very basic troubleshooting....so anyone got any ideas what it could be other than a bad router (which i dont think is the case,but could be)...the router is connected wired to my desktop...and as for what troubleshooting steps ive taken ive switched LAN ports,ive switched out cables, put the IP address into DMZ....um and swapped at the new router for the old one (see above) ...thats about it

so +rep to anyone that can help me solve this little issue...which btw seems to only affect BF3

btw sorry for the long post...i tend to ramble when im tired redface.gif

If there is a "QOS" or "Traffic shaping" option on the new router... disable it. A lot of the time this comes enabled by default.

Did you check the pings of everyone else on the server each time?

Try disabling any security options (shouldn't apply to you since you're wired, but doesn't hurt to try).

Upgrade the firmware.

That thing has some bad reviews, lol. Including one that mentions your issue of gaming (aka skidding).

thanks guys for responding

so theres no QoS or any type of firewall or NAT enabled on the router or even this computer as of now

as for other peoples pings...i would say on both servers i tried they ranged from the 20's to the 100's with most being in the 30-70 range...the servers themselves were both in the 50-70 range....nothing i would consider high latency at all

the firmware thing im going to try this morning...i had a dd-wrt firmware that i MAY try...but im not sure if im going to see a fix by just updating the firmware

as for crappy reviews...eh i take them with a grain of salt...yes it may not be the top of the line brand or router but it has some positive reviews and from my reading on the dd-wrt forums this router has the internals of a router thats gotten good reviews and stuff...which is the Dlink DIR-825 then again reading the newegg reviews it doesnt seem to hot

eh im going to upgrade the firmware to the latest released by trendnet and if im still having the issue ill have the thing RMA'ed...no big deal...luckily my old router still works biggrin.gif


EDIT: just updated the firmware...like i figured it didnt do anything...still rubber banding..bah mad.gif
