Help! Router gaming problems.
I recently bought a Linksys WRT160N off of my friend for $20. I only need something cheap to enable my girlfriend to stream a little bit of video every now and then on her laptop. Since I've installed the router, I've been having terrible latency in a few online games that I play.
I've been reading about routers a little bit lately, and keep coming across QoS. Is that something that can be downloaded, or is it a feature of a given router? With that being said, is there anything I can do to help my latency in online games?
I'm currently running Windows 7 Ultimate with a Linksys WRT160N router. My ISP is Eastlink (Atlantic Canada). I normally have great latency, but this router seem to be bogging it down tremendously.
Any suggestions would be appreciated -- thanks in advance.
YOu'll need to turn QoS on at both the router and the PC, not sure if it's on by default or not in Windows7. There's more info in the manuals on the Linksys site.
I'd also make sure you've got the latest firmware for your router and do a factory reset on it, just in case your friend had anything weird set-up on it.
You shouldn't have any lag problems with the 160N really for gaming, so hopefully the above should solve your problems.
