View Full Version : [Network Lag] High pings since 2.0
12-14-2010, 03:23 PM
I've been getting an increased latency as a result of patch 2.0. I'm from israel, and have checked with my ISP and there appear to have been no changes since yesterday. However, where I used to have circa 130 MS, I now have 300, even to relatively close servers! (GR, FR)
What's even more dumbfounding is that, when I actually attempt to ping the same servers that give me bad connections through the game, I get around 100 MS, with almost no routing problems (all the connections are reachable).
I'm running in a DMZ, so there's no port problems, and, as I said, this issue has only started occurring to me as a result of the recent update. Please help!

Could I see the results from the network quality diagnostics wiki page?

As you can see, it looks great! But when I actually try to connect to the server, BAM, 300 MS :(
If it helps, my DXDiag is attached in this post.

Hmm. Are there any QoS (quality of service) filters on your network? Also, try http://forums.steampowered.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1043281.

My ISP has no QoS filters (that's why I joined them) and I tried the things on the steam forum to no avail.

Could you upload a console.log after playing a game where this happens? Remember to post the link, too.

I'll get to it this evening when I can play, can you make sure that this thread doesn't close please?

I won't close it :). Just post the console.log when you get it.

Okay, I've solved the problem myself, apparently, entering this into a CMD being run as administrator changes some network stuff, and it drastically reduced pings for me:
netsh interface tcp set global ecncapability=disabled
Thanks for your help!
