GEARS OF WAR 2 hosting problems

takes ages to find a game and when i do find a game and i am host every one lags bad.if i join somebody else lobby they get into a match fast so think game is not traffic shaped properly.i play with no firewall on and have open nat type and my upload speed is 18 meg so more then enough to host a game

Are you connected via an Ethernet Cable or Wireless?

Re: GEARS OF WAR 2 hosting problems

hard for other players to connect to me and increase in lag.no point using game mode as it makes searching for a game take even longer.gaming mode seems to open wrong ports.

We're not around on a weekend.
We try and reply bas quickly as possible - we're only human.
I very much doubt that Traffic Management is causing the problem if this is all you're using your connection for. If you wanted to purchase a Netgear router, we'd be more than happy to help you set it up.
Have you forwarded the relevant ports for the hosting? I've hosted various games on the TG582n without any problems.

Re: GEARS OF WAR 2 hosting problems

We don't have any Netgear routers, we used to, but any more.
Have you forwarded port 3074?

Re: GEARS OF WAR 2 hosting problems

I'm trying to help you.
If you're not happy with the router that we have supplied you with, you do have the option to buy your own.
Removing your Firewall isn't necessarily the answer to be honest, I was querying it, just to see if you've tried opening the required port on your Firewall instead.
I'll let other members of the Community provide further advice.
