Possible Internet/Router Issue


#1

Hi, I’m having a peculiar issue while trying to play UMVC3 and other fighting games online. I almost always have full bars against my opponent which means the games should play pretty smoothly but I get horrible lag. Everything I input comes out a second or two later. My internet speed on my computer is fine. This issue started when I purchased a new router. My netplay was completely fine before I “upgraded” my router. Has anyone encountered anything like this before and do you know what steps I should take to fix it?

Some details:

Current Router: http://www.netgear.com/home/products/wirelessrouters/work-and-play/WNR2000.aspx

Old Router looked just like this(dont remember exact model) http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-jA_sfM_BWPs/T1cqmxeuuRI/AAAAAAAAAWo/k0LAGpSq-cM/s1600/Netgear-Router.jpg

New router - extreme lag across multiple games on ps3 and 360
Old router - worked extremely well

Both routers are/were located in the exact same spot, one floor above the consoles

I have comcast cable internet

any info would be greatly appreciated!

Did you try opening up the ports on your router for xbl/psn?

like mr.mortified said, opening up ports can help with those delay times.

www.portforward.com find your router and follow the instructions provided. hopefully that will clear up the delay time for you
