Internet is a 3G mobile broadband from verizon
I need some help with getting my internet optimized. I have a 3G wireless plan with verizon. I have a mobile hotspot modem that I can use as a mobile hotspot. I was using it directly with the usb modem function of the device but then started using it as a hotspot so I could connect multiple computers to the hotspot. I live in a rural area so wireless is my only option other than satellite. I have two computers that are using usb adapters to connect to the internet. I am using the below usb adapter to connect my computer.
It does well for most of the time. I use the internet for games, news, and email. I can get it to a full signal according to the signal strength of the Windows 7 software and the TP Link software that came with the adapter. When I play games my ping is about 130-140 ms, down 60 ms from when I was using the old connection and now using the TP link adapter. But the problem is that when I play games now I have a low ping but I have rubberbanding affect where I try to change direction of moving and I skip a few frames in the previous direction.
I was looking at other options and usb adapters and routers to see if this I have the best hardware for my computer. I came across this article that talked about getting 3G/4G to the best optimization. According to this article I need fully open Nat type 2 connection to maximize getting the best ping in games. I read the article and it list certain routers but they are very expensive. Here is the article.
I read about getting a nat 2 connection. So how can I get a nat 2 connection and what is the best router or usb adapter to use. What is the best hardware to use for my 3G Wireless connection.
One other problem I have always had, is that in games my ping will spike to 988 ms occasionally for 10 seconds but then it goes back to below 200 ms. It passes but can be a real problem in certain situations.
Any Help would be great,
