need some help, properly setting up my router....

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
ok, so before my on ancient 6 year old router that craped out on me, my wifi speeds/bandwith and my gaming speeds were ok, but they werernt utalizing my internet connection to its fullest, see details of such senario here:

http://www.overclock.net/t/1314631/i-need-a-budget-50-usd-router/0_20#post_18333126

results of my upgrade are also on there.

now, my speeds are amazing, however, when i am playing multiplayer, i am lagging like crap, i unplug the router, and plug my pc directly into my modem, and the issue goes away,

now i dont know alot about networking, but i am assuming it has something to do with ports?

the router i bought is this:
http://www.walmart.ca/en/ip/d-link-router-dir-615/106692?collectionName=Featured+Item&fromCollectionPage=false

i know that there are ip pages you can go into and stuff but i dont know any of that for this router (i am sure i can figure it out) and i dont know how/what ports to open, or if that is the problem at all.

thanks

ggoodd,

If you wish to use port forwarding on your computer for playing games. You will need to find out the Ip Address of the computer. Once you have the Ip Address you will aslo need to find out what ports are required to be open for the game to access.
