A "How to" for reducing your ping for gaming in Windows 7/Vista - Page 5

post #41 of 49
Thread Starter 
As stated before to those who say it makes no difference you are absolutely wrong. You can throw around all the tech talk you want but numbers don't lie, and my ping dropped significantly in Black ops. I couldn't break lower than 100ms most of the time and now I'm always well below it.

Im sure I wil eventually have to post a video of before and after, or maybe screen shots to hush the nay sayers.rolleyes.gif

My problem with gaming has always been routing. I live in Cali and can connect fine to anything on the west coast and even Texas servers, but as soon as I try to play on a Chicago server the signal jumps all over the place resulting in over 120 ping when I should be able to get 70-80. Tested it with three different ISP's and got the same results. This may not seem like a big problem, but the sub-par connection excludes me from playing Counter-Strike competitively anymore because all leagues play on Chicago servers now. Sigh.

This reduced my ping by 10+.

Thanks!

Isn't this for games that specifcally use TCP like Wow? Games like Bc2/BF3 use upd.

It helped me in BF3.

At pingtest.net it reduced my jitter to Chicago.

This would be nice to see. But it's been awhile since this thread has been discussed. Does anyone have any videos to show before in after in MP games other then wow? BF3 for example.

The PING command checks for TCP response... but the majority of game data utilize a completely different network protocol. Improving TCP or ping locally does not improve UDP latency.
PING is more of a general indicator of the network latency as it moves a TCP packet to and from.
The ping utility does not use TCP nor does it use UDP. It uses ICMP as its transmission protocol.
