Windows 7: Connectify Hotspot lags on online games

You will need a faster internet connection. Its quite simple. You cannot have multiple people on a connection that slow plus you trying to play online games. Isn't going to happen. That kind of speed is good for email and websites. Playing games online might work, but add other people and now its going to lag hard. Everything will. Its different when your simply copying files from one PC or another, then that is determined more by router speed. But you cannot squeeze more out of a slow connection with what your trying to do. A nice router will help with good internet speeds but you have a very slow connection. So any g router will do. Buying a better router/upgrading network equipment is not going to improve your situation.

Your internet speed is just fine. The problem is you're gaming over WiFi, which is not good for games that rely on low latency. I have 50 meg at home but when I play Diablo 3 on my laptop on WiFi I get lag spikes. As soon as I disable WiFi and connect my Ethernet cable no more lag spikes.

So, pretty much not a ton of options for you other than stop using WiFi.

i hope your problem gets solved soon.
Internet speed doesn't have to do with this, sorry if u got offended,that's wasn't my purpose.

@ICit2lol please do not make useless posts on my topic.Go report me now.

Kari sorry but i didn't understand it.

andrew129260 I answered it because it's not hard to understand that,I need a solution cuz people pay for it
Well my friend as far as I am concerned and after seeing what you have said to the others and myself you are not worth helping as you seem to know all the answers anyway.

As for reporting yourself I think you are doing a really fine job for yourself on that score. Perhaps you might try boring the life out of others on another forum with your total lack of courtesy and manners - thinking of it maybe you already have? and leave us to help those who really need it.

Since when is 10mbps download good for gaming online?

Sure if you are playing chess online. People that play with this sort of internet connection are the main reason people get kicked out and everyones game lags.

You should be gaming online only with a 20mbps at least.

But that is not factoring everyone sharing that connection.

Agreed on wired though, always best to be wired when possible-especially for gaming.

Speed is not needed for online game play, latency is king when it comes to gaming. Latency anywhere in the process causes glitching or lag. You're not sending or receiving much data, but what little data is being sent/received needs to arrive with as little delay as possible. A 10meg connection with 20ms latency to the server is better than 50 meg connection with 100ms latency.

Latency is important, but so is speed.

They both are.

Not just one.

I can agree with you on this.

Good

And you are right. But I believe in this particular case the OP needs more speed for what they are trying to achieve so that everyone has decent results. That is why they came to this forum in the first place. If things were working well for him he would not be here. The only other option I can think of is using a router with a feature for prioritizing bandwidth. But not all routers have this feature. Still though, either way with that speed someone will suffer on the net.

@ unlockAVSO

I also suggest running pingtest.net

That will give a more accurate reading. Sadly It requires java, so make sure to uninstall it after you're finished.

andrew129260 even if you have 1mbps internet speed and you have a good latency, you can play online like a boss without lagging, and if I am asking for help here it doesn't mean that I am total stupid for pc, and my ping is great too.If u really think that it should be at least 20mbs you are wrong and ask who ever u want about it.

tommyg you are absolutely right.But it lags even if only one device is connected.

That will do unlockAVSO.

We are diverting from the subject. We have provided you support.

If you still know better, then im afraid we can not help you.
