    How to fix your ping.

    Hello there everyone. I had alot of problems with my ping due bad internett but my friend told me about this. It worked awsome.

    ReidE96 told me this: That will only work for latencies on TCP connections, though. Your PC sends out a SYN packet, gets a SYN/ACK packet, and responds with an ACK packet. For UDP things, like streaming, this'll do absolutely nothing.

    Read that first since that is required for this to work.

    I have no idea why it works and stuffs like that i just follwed his orders and it came out with a really good end.

    This is by no means new information and it’s been around for years, but I had never heard of it before. You make these changes at your own risk and I really can’t help you beyond what’s being said here.

    About two months ago my latency was anywhere from 480-550. My current latency is anywhere from 100-120. Some of you might think that my ping is still high but it made a big diffrence for me and i'm glad for it.
    Here are the steps I took.

    Go to Start

    Go to Run

    Type in: regedit

    Expand the following folders fromt he explorer on the left (or see image below)

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE

    SYSTEM

    CurrentControlSet

    Services

    Tcpip

    Parameters

    Interfaces



    Now, right click on the first folder in interfaces.

    Go to ‘new’

    Click on DWORD value

    Rename this value to: TcpAckFrequency

    Right click this and click on Modify

    Change the ‘Value Data’ to: 1

    Do the same for each of the folders in Interfaces

    Restart your computer

    Hope this will help you as much as it did help me.

    For those questioning Reid's wise words, he's explaining how TCP works, and that UDP stuff will not be affected by this method.

    For the one trying clever saying "English Please" because he can't comprehend a few computing terms, wait until you get to a higher year in school, perhaps 9 or 10. You'll learn about that stuff. If you've gone through school, then unless you're forgetful, I suggest you're quiet and stop spamming.

    This doesn't change anything for me, and I saw it posted earlier. Link:
    http://www.mmowned.com/forums/wow-ex...-your-fps.html
    It's in the last video, I don't blame you for not finding this in a search (I don't think I would have either), but it is still a repost.
    Anyways, theoretically, this should work, and has for some, so it is a good guide. It also fixes ping for other things than WoW. - I just don't know the downsides of using this.
    Also, if you do not plan to delete your thread, please watch the video of this other post and use some of his stuff to your guide. For example, you don't need to restart the computer, just the internet connection.

    Basically it takes out 1 step from normal internet connections between your local machine and the WAN. This won't be noticeable for people who already have decently fast internet connections because of how fast ACK's are processed.

    If you have vista and your getting lag about every 3 minutes or so. It is due to the way vista's connection search works. The way it works is vista searches for connections around the adapter or NIC every 2-5 minutes or so. If you are having this problem, your best luck would be downloading a program called "Vista Anti-Lag v1.1.1" This will stop the connection search if your already connected to an access point such as a router. If you would like me to upload the program let me know. Other then that, Good luck
