Re: Symmetric NAT breaks online gaming

You can use a pair of HomePlugs instead of WiFi. It gives you the same connection quality/speed as Ethernet, without the hassle of wires. :smileywink:

What kind of connection (DSL/Cable/Fiber) do you have?

But how come I always get NAT type 2, but apparently I still lag and can't host many games for the majority of the community?

There are probably other criteria as well, such as upload speed and being the leader of a party or not.

Hopefully they won't ignore my question:

Also, just because you have NAT Type 2, it doesn't mean that your connection will be lag-free. Lots of people have NAT Type 2, from 256Kbps ADSL connections to 1Gbps Fiber connections. WiFi also increases lag.

I do not understand though. I am not laggy and barely get white plug-ins. I look at cinemas and I do not lag..... So an explanation?

Don't look at YOUR cinemas, you have to look at other people's cinemas to see if you're lagging or not.

I have a fiber optic connection. And Homeplugs? Care to elaborae or some links or what they are all about? I'd do anything to not be on wireless cause I can't quite "extend" a wire from my "Optic Box" to my PS3!
