Just bought a new router for the household yesterday, Belkin N600. "Upgrading" from another older Belkin wireless router. The old router seemed to work well with the game, I wouldn't get lag spikes at all, and gameplay was smooth. This new router on the other hand is giving me lag spikes about every 5 minutes. I do not know if this is due to the router being dual band or if i don't have the right channels open.
I was wondering if anyone has run into this and has a solution. I would go back to the old one in a heartbeat if it weren't for my roommate needing the better range and speed of the new one.
Ran a hardline to the router, gameplay is awesome with no lag spikes, shitty part is that the router is in my roommates room on the other side of the house. I would have though that with a 50 meg dl/5 meg ul i wouldnt have a problem. just tried to play again, Played through act 3 in nm on HC and was able to clear it but had about 10 spikes. if i was playing SC i dont think i would care. but the 5 seconds of "ohh my shit" scare me in HC
No spikes when hardwired, router in the other room due to ease of access. I could move it to the front room i suppose, but i hate running CAT6 cable, and don't understand why a 3 year old router would work better. Wondering if it is just some ports i don't have open for the game to access...
