30 mbps download, 12-14 upload and an A on ping test, slow online gaming

9 replies 221 views Edited May 18, 2013

I just dont understand why when I play games it lags so much, and I dont even play games where that much is going on, just MLB the show mainly. Im wired in with my ps3 and I have these numbers when I test on my computer. I thought it was the modem/router phone internet modem they put in (I have cox communications), but I got just a normal modem with a separate router and its still bad. It'll start out alright when I play, and get progressively worse as the game goes on, like everything will slow down/lag when more things are happening. I just wanna make sure that these numbers are pretty good, right? I've called multiple times, but they say everything is fine and the speed tests show its fine. The connection was fine though before they put these new modems in, I also thought it might be the splitter, but its always been there. I dont know whats wrong? I just wanna get to #1 in MLB the show and I can barely even play lol, it's not just that game that lags though.

1st. Wrong forums, should be under PSN section. 2nd. You can have 300 mbs down 50 mbs up and it wouldn't matter. You need to make sure your router is configured with open ports so you can have a more direct connection with the PlayStation network.

Most of the time it is the game servers are just generic, or they are having issues...

Then there is your setup, modem/router to close to pc/ps3, or each other?

Trust me many issues are solved by moving the upto 4 ft from each other...

 

Then you have to consider the ethernet cable might be bad or the wrong type..

I use cat6 e On everything in my home..

It opens up the bottle neck other cables have they let more data through the cable...

 

Then consider purchasing 2 ethernet switches..

Place 1 by the router, wire your modem to the switch then from the switch to your router..

Then go ahead and place the cable you have hooked to your ps3 into the switch..

 

Now goto your ps3 place the cable into the 2nd switch, then place a wire from the switch to your ps3...

 

Now that we have that taken care of, go ahead and log into your router..

Check to see if your router has new firmware available..

If it has firmware available go ahead and update that..

 

Now goto the dns section, changed the defult to 8.8.8.8

                                                                    8.8.4.4

 

Then hit apply wait for it to load back to you routers home page...

Now goto the dmz section, replace the defult 2 nmubers with 50 click apply and wait..

When the page refreshes you are done on the pc..

 

Goto your ps3 goto your network settings.

Click custom, wired, manual choose 100 full duplex. the click manual ip.

top line 192.168.2.50

dns the 8 numbers i gave u, then the defult ip 192.168.2.1

These ip's are for most routers, netgears defult is 196.168.2.01 some 10

Read up on your router and find out the ip setting etc..

 

This if all done will solve your problem..

Unless it is server related, it also could be internet related.

Cable internet goes by a single switch board in a neighborhood etc.

Which this mean if your neighbor used the internet he is slowing it down for you.

The more the use it the slower it gets..

 

Againg hope this helps you out.

One last thing you would want to hook switches to everything hardwired to your router....

It makes sure you are getting the most out of your internet...

go to portforward.com, select your router model and version, and then select PSN and the game you want to play.

It shows a detailed, step-by-step on how to forward your ports

some games lag sometimes because they make on the host ..a player and if his internet stinks you will stink..and if he gets disconnected you loose the entire game..I got good internet also but it depends how many are on the game companys server also. thats why having fast internet is kind of a waste on ps home and some games..The servers run only so fast . hope this helps
