speed up your online gaming (and internet browsing)



This script is designed for WOW but I've seen some notable improvement with my web browsing as well. Read it for yourself: http://www.wowinterface.com/download...atencyFix.html

download link is there too.

Enjoy!

haven't tested it for that, but I don't think it would. Its more about improved response time than gross speed.

Noticed a 4-7ms drop in latency on some servers. Internet browsing I wont notice a difference as I'm already getting 9+mbits consistently.

most of the difference in browsing, I found, is the pages that previously did, don't wait for ads to load before other content.

I like torrentzap.com for most things - has a decent library.

What torrent program? Did you set-up port forwarding on your router? Does your router have access rules? (usu. secondary to the port forwarding, but can interfere)

if you run mozilla get Ad Block Plus .. you wont even see an ad. It even gets rid of commericals that play before videos you watch on the net.

there are hundreds/thousands of available ports that you can arbitrarily pick - it doesn't matter which you use (as long as it is not already in use).
I refer to this when assigning ports: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of...P_port_numbers

Does the torrent program have a nat/firewall test built in? (I don't have any experience with b.torrent, just vuze and u.torrent, which both have a port checking feature)

Who is your ISP? Does your modem also provide your wireless internet?
Some modems are set up to function as routers like an all in one device. I had a bell modem I had to log into and configure to allow port forwarding, which I only figured out by doing a google search of the modem model number with "allow port forwarding" at the end. (nothing about that in the book that came with it)
