Exclamation WOW Lag - January 26th 2011, 05:05 PM

Hey just needing advice to improve my network connection so i can play wow again. I stopped playing a few months ago. I'm using the same connection same router same computer the only difference from now and then is that i downgraded from Vista to XP. My latency when i was playing it was maybe just a couple hundred ms. i know its not great but the game was playable but it was the frame rate that sucked. it was maybe around 10 except if i was in a high populated city then it would be maybe 0.3 lol. but now when i go online my latency was 8000 but i lowered to 3000 but can't seem to make it go any lower, also my frame rate now is great its between 40-60 most times. so i'm just needing advice on what i need to do to get the latency under control. i already did the update my network drivers in device manager. and the firewall trick nothing is really helping a whole lot. any suggestions?

Have you tried the Leatrix Latency Fix? It's a simple VBscript that modifies your network settings to stop packet binding and allow for individual packet sending. A link to it is: well I can't post links yet, but google it and it's the first result..

Also, if you are running any programs like BitTorrent or uTorrent, or anything that's streaming and downloading anything, that will slow your latency by using up a lot of bandwidth. I recommend closing all things that connect to the internet that you are not using at the time. I play WoW a lot myself, and I have noticed a dramatic increase in latency by doing this.

Also, if you ever have problems with FPS again, try out the Leatrix GFX addon, it works wonders.

Double check your settings. After a few of the patches it reset all of my settings to “high” quality and it made me lag so badly. So I went and fixed it all and it fixed my problems instantly. So it’s worth double checking.

check your internet connection on a website like speedtest.net and see if it is dramatically lower than you thought

mine slowly deteriorated and was unplayable, I rewired the internet with fresh cables apart from one but it tripled my speed (going from 0.1 mb/s to 0.3 mb/s )
