Modern Warfare 2 Wireshark

I've noticed that in the evenings the pings for MW2 drop so low that i can't play anymore, which is kinda annoying. Can someone tell me what i need to do to get some info from wireshark so that this game can get added to the list and be prioritised?

pc  Wink
Sorry should have specified. Not sure if all steam games are auto filtered already but i'm guessing not, and what i noticed last night supports that.

Re: Modern Warfare 2 Wireshark

why playing the game just run wireshark and check the hex value on the packets http://www.plus.net/support/broadband/troubleshooting/wireshark.shtml

Re: Modern Warfare 2 Wireshark

ok i managed to take a decent capture but it goes from my desktop all the way to a few seconds of play and has about 2500 packets, so which bits do i need to put in a ticket? (or should i just send the whole thing)?
Looking at the data, most of the packets are gold (0x80) but i only found one titanium packet, so i'm guessing this means it is not classified as gaming traffic yet?

I'd stick the whole pcap file on the ticket.

Re: Modern Warfare 2 Wireshark

maybe i should upgrade to the pro package, will i get titanium traffic then?

Upgrading to either Premium or Pro should do the job for gaming, however Pro will give you prioritised across all traffic all the time
