Is there a way to lower latency? When I play games, my latency is around 250 to 300. I am running a DSL connection connected to a router. Any help much appreciated.
It can be many factors...
Where do you live??? If you are in a foreign country and you try to play on US servers your ping can be 200-300.
Routers themselves can make the pings in the server lists appear higher than they actually are in the real game after you load the map...
Your isp can even be the problem....
Other people in your house can be the blame also, if they are downloading or playing other games it can make your pings goto 300, its quite normal on slower dsl/cable lines...
You can try just to plug the modem directly to your pc just to see if the problem is gone. If the pings are better and the problems are gone then its got to be the router or either other people on your line because when you use a router your sharing your connection..
You can try and update the firmware on the router, its really simple. Just goto the manufacturers web site and follow the instructions on your model router....

Thank you for all your suggestions.
p-zero: I am playing counter strike 1.5. When I am in the game I do what you said correct? I will defiantly try that, I had no idea you can do that. Thanks.
I am not sure where this server is, I am in Canada and the server is treshna Enterprises I think. Any servers I play on I have this problem.
I am the only one that is playing the games, there is another computer, but it's mostly off (parents). I think it may be the ISP also, I am going to bypass the router and go directly and see if that made a difference.
Firmware is already updated on the router.
Thanks again jrm20, warriorscot and p-zero. Will try everything I let you know.
