Lagging out in the middle of an intense online match? Tired of glitchy gameplay and frustrating disconnects? At Airosurf Communications, we understand that a smooth, reliable internet connection is crucial for a winning online gaming experience.

Here are some tips to optimize your network for peak gaming performance:

Understand the Culprits of Lag

Before diving into solutions, let’s identify the common culprits behind lag:

  • High Latency: This refers to the time it takes for data to travel between your device and the game server. The lower the latency (measured in milliseconds, or “ms”), the faster your actions register in the game.
  • Bandwidth Hogs: Multiple devices streaming videos, downloading large files, or using bandwidth-intensive applications can bottleneck your connection, impacting your gaming performance.
  • Unstable Wi-Fi: Interference from other wireless devices or a poor Wi-Fi signal can cause frequent drops and connection stutters.

Taking Control of Your Network:

  • Wi-Fi Best Practices: If you’re using a wireless connection for your console or computer, be sure to select the 5GHz Wi-Fi network on your router. The 5GHz frequency provides better stability and performance than the 2.4GHz frequency. If your router is close enough to your device, you can simply use an ethernet cable instead of Wi-Fi.
  • Prioritize Gaming Traffic: Many routers offer Quality of Service (QoS) settings. This allows you to prioritize gaming traffic over other applications, ensuring your online matches receive the bandwidth they need.
  • Reduce Background Traffic: Close any unnecessary applications or programs that might be using up bandwidth while you’re gaming.

Static IP and Open NAT:

You may have heard about using a static IP address and opening your Network Address Translation (NAT) type for a better online experience. Having a static IP generally doesn’t directly impact lag once you’re in-game, but it can be helpful for ensuring you can establish a connection to the right servers and connect with your friends. Contact our support team if you’d like to set up a Static IP for your service and learn how to open your NAT type.
