I have done everything I can do increase my Internet speed yet I am still experiencing lag on every server on any game. What is going on?

There are no other network intensive processes on the network, as usual.

   Hello again gigapouch;

 

           What games are you trying to play? The lower your internet speed, which yours is the bottom of the barrel, the worse a lot of online games will play.

Mainly Minecraft and Rigs of Rods. But the funny part of it all is that I never had this issue before.

What down/up are you paying for?

What exactly did you do to try to increase your internet speed?  Sometimes these tweeks have the opposite affect.

We're paying for 6016kb/768, which translates to about 6mb/0.75. 

 

I'm getting 5/0.65 which is not bad, considering I had 0.5/0.5 before I did the optimizations.

 

This is what I did to increase my speed:

1. Reset router

2. Change the Wi-fi channel to the one I tested as being the "fastest"

3. Reinstall driver for wifi dongle

 

And that's about it.

Have you tried adding port forward settings for your specific games? I used to play NHL 14 online and it was very laggy until I entered the proper settings into my router. You'd think the game would work fine without these settings, but it did help me a lot. The Port Forward site has the settings you need for a TON of games.

Weird.... Well, I already have port 25565 forwarded for my MC server (but I still experience chat lag and "block breaking lag"), but I think I'll port forward the ports between 12000 and 14000 for Rigs of Rods. Thx for the tip! I guess port forwarding gives the game server a direct route to your PC  instead of something else.

OK. Port forwarding does absolutely nothing. We're talking 4fps lag here (in Rigs of Rods), when I normally get 75fps in singleplayer.

I would be worried about the second hop IPV6 1602:300:c533:1510::26 since it responded to a 16ms then * * means there is something going on there & possibly packet loss. I ran a ping -6 and a traceroute and it doesn't resolve to anything anymore. Maybe AT&T is doing temporary maintenance. Can you try another traceroute? Need to do a whois on that ipv6 address to determine if its on AT&T. You're not daisy chaining routers or anything right?

Daisy chaining? Never heard of it, so no. Here's a tracert to google.com:

Your traceroute looks a lot better than the last. It seems AT&T has resolved the problem. Are you still having issues? I read there was vandalism done in Scaremento California where someone had cut a main fiber optic line. As far as lag to a video game server there really isn't much you can do other than find a server closer to westcoast or mid. Do you know the IP of the game server? If not you can connect to the game for a while (be sure to close any browsers open) and drop the game down to desktop and run cmd in administrator mode and type netstat -bno to determine the established connection, tcp port, as well as exe file that is running.

You should check with you internet provider. And find out whats the speed you suppose to be getting. Afer they tell you
compare by doing a spead test at speakeasy
and if is lower then what you paying for tell them to resend signal or to fix it.if they dont fix it ask for credit.

Wow, I didn't know about that... Sacramento is a 2 hour drive from my house. No, but there are a list of Rigs of Rods servers: http://www.rigsofrods.com/servers/index

 

EDIT: Apparently I am still experiencing some packet loss on some servers, though.
