How to get a lower ping in multiplayer servers?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
So I share my internet with everyone in my household and it seems like if someone is streaming online my ping is outrageously high.

Now playing online games, high ping kills the experience and so I was wondering if anyone could advise me on if I do upgrade my internet, it will help with the ping fluctuation when multiple users are using the internet. If not my internet, will having a separate router possibly help?

Currently I have 15 mbps down and am thinking of upping to 30 mbps if it'll help.

I'm only using wifi rather than being plugged in (I'm on a laptop so please don't suggest lan cable)

Also I'm usually playing CS:GO.

Thanks!

The problem with your ping are the specific issues you mentioned. Regardless of cable or DSL, when you're sharing, everyone who's using takes a hit in latency. Add wireless on top of that and you'll really lag.

In order to get your ping down to a decent level, you'd have to:

1 - Stop sharing completely
2 - Run a patch cable to your laptop. Wireless only adds to the problem.
3 - Get at least a 40mbps line

Anything less and you'll continue to see latency issues, there is no way around it.
