Hey guys just wondering if anyone had any experience in this situation.
I recently moved, and got the same internet deal from comcast transferred to my new apartment. Im using a new modem, but the same router. The problem I have is that only during *super *offpeak hours (talking 4-7 AM) can I get good netplay matches. Also I do play with a wired connection
So we decided to up our plan from 30 Mbps down/ 5 Mbps up, to 50 Mbps down/15 Mbps up. I’ve done speed tests before switchng and we usually got 30 Mbps down/ 5 Mbps up. Now we get 60 Mbps down/ 5 Mbps up when directly connected to the modem but ~20 Mbps down/5 up when connected through the router. So I was wondering if I should upgrade my router (even though it was fine before), or upgrade my modem (since we switched in the move)? Also has anyone been familiar with the pattern of only getting good matches during offpeak hours? I have a feeling I am only getting good connections at those times because our neighbors turn off their computers before they go to sleep and therefore stop torrenting. Also as a sidenote whenever I tried to torrent (I shut them all off when I do netplay) I have to change the settings to only allow a small amount of connections, and I believe that may be because of the modem, because I never had to do that with a different modem and the same router.
Router Model : Netgear WGR614v9
Modem Model : Ubee DDM3513
So anyone got any advice on a new router/modem or both, or if I should even bother? Thanks for reading.
