How to reduce ping when playing online games

High ping is a major problem for online gamers. You will suffer lag and delay depending on the game which you are playing. I played lots of online games and it really is a very big disadvantage when you play on a high ping. You experience high ping because of many factors. It may be because of  a virus on your computer, a network setting or your ISP throttling your internet speed, etc..

I'll give here all the steps that I know to hopefully make your online gaming a better experience:

  1. Check your computer for viruses and spywares - If you don't have any antivirus installed on your computer, It's best to install one now and scan your computer for malwares. There are many FREE antivirus scattered around the internet like Avira, for example.
  2. Close all downloads when playing online - Close or pause them when gaming as they are the main reason you're having high ping. They hog your bandwidth.
  3. Close processes that may be using the internet - Close your browser and all other apps that are using your internet so your game will be the only one which uses it. You can also use Razer Game booster to close them for you.
  4. Disable your antivirus when gaming - Other gamers suggest to disable it when gaming as it scans packets before it arrives to its destination. Don't forget to enable it after you play.
  5. Install Leatrix Latency Fix - It has various tweaks for TCP parameters. Use it so TCP acknowledgements sent to the game server will be faster. You can download Leatrix Latency fix here.
  6. If the above tips doesn't work - Contact yout ISP and tell them about your problems in gaming. If you are on wireless, change your network plan and switch to a wired one as wireless internet are not very good in online games because you might get lots of packet loss.
That's about all of it. If I find more tweaks or softwares, I will share it here to make everyone's ping low.

TCP Optimizer - maximize your internet speed!

Are you tired of your slow internet? You don't get the speed promised by your ISP and you want to make it faster?

Well, you've come to the right post because here's an application by SpeedGuide that tweaks the internet settings of your computer for optimal speeds!

SG TCP Optimizer

Description from the author, SpeedGuide,

"The TCP Optimizer is a free, easy Windows program that provides an intuitive interface for tuning and optimizing your Internet connection. There is no installation required, just download and run. 

The program can aid both the novice and the advanced user in tweaking related TCP/IP parameters in Windows, making it easy to tune your system to the type of Internet connection used. The tool uses advanced algorithms, and the bandwidth*delay product to find the best TCP Window for your specific connection speed. It provides for easy tuning of all related TCP/IP parameters, such as MTU, RWIN, and even advanced ones like QoS and ToS/Diffserv prioritization. The program works with all current versions of Windows, and includes additional tools, such as testing average latency over multiple hosts, and finding the largest possible packet size (MTU). 

The TCP Optimizer is targeted towards broadband internet connections, however it can be helpful with tuning any internet connection type, from dialup to Gigabit+ :) It is completely free, requires no installation, and has been downloaded over 3 Million times. 

If you need help with the program, check the TCP Optimizer documentation, read our broadband tweaking articles, the Optimizer FAQ, and/or visit our Forums. The program can be freely (re)distributed, as long as you give us proper credit as the author, and it is not sold for profit."

Don't you worry because it will not cost you anything. It's absolutely FREE! And If you experience slower internet (which rarely happens) you can restore the settings from your backup because TCP Optimizer automatically saves one incase these kind of things happen.

You can download it from the official website of SpeedGuide.

How to Tweak (for beginners)

This guide is just for beginners. Advanced users can experiment on their own or head to the forums of TCP Optimizer

Step 1.
Scroll the connection speed to the speed your ISP promised or the plan you applied for.

Step 2.
Click the Optimal radio button for automatic and optimal settings based on your speed.

Step 3.
Click Apply changes to save your settings.

Step 4.
Restart and see if your internet speed up a bit or if it get slower, restore to the previous or default settings.

That's all for today! Hope I helped someone!
Have a great day ahead!
