Re: ps3 is just lagging sooo bad online

I've never had anything past 3mb in the Last year i've been at PN, to be fair i haven't lagged as bad as i fought i would.
The only games i play is Black ops and Fifa Both seem Ok, i Do sometimes get what your experienceing though, i also Lag on Fifa but once i restart the Router the lag goes ok for a Week then it'll happen again, Could it be Screen Lag your getting? might not be but Heard about that in a Few COD topics..

Re: ps3 is just lagging sooo bad online

Hi Chris2169,
As per the responses from kevinneildsl, Fifa had been a sore point. After a lot of investigation, it looks to be an issue with the console/game with specific issues on the fat console.
In your own case though, you have already indicated this has been ruled out.
Inspection of your account shows it is all setup correctly, and the pro-addon is certainly doing its job if you happen to be using an unrecognised game. We would expect to see a large volume or reports if there is a problem with this, which we are not.
As such, this looks to be something else. Interleaving was one factor, which you have already indicated has been dealt with (though I have verified that too).
Your line looks to of a pretty good standard, with more than capable speeds and few errors on the line.
Usage per hour during your heavy usage period do not seem to be a factor either.
Can you confirm what game you are seeing this on (all if multiple). We will have a look at verify what we know about that game and see what more we can recommend and look at for you.

Re: ps3 is just lagging sooo bad online

i understand that mw3 has lag compensation built in to try and even good lines against bad, you could be falling foul of this.
Will Moderate For Thanks

Re: ps3 is just lagging sooo bad online

COD forums have many posts from people with very good lines complaining about the unfairness of the lag compensation system.
I've read of some gamers starting a big download before a game to try and increase their lag a little so the lag compensation will leave them alone. Roll eyes

Re: ps3 is just lagging sooo bad online

what ive done is restrict my upload on the router from 16mbs to 1mbs
havent done the download although i may do this and check it.

a right pain though as when i want to stream etc im gonna have to go back in and change the settings
i swear fifa do this connection compensation thing too.
its really ridiculous as im sure most who play games and have decent connections got upgraded connections to IMPROVE gameplay rather than decrease it.
