I've been having issues running games on my laptop. I try to run something as complicated as Battlefield 3 Multiplayer, and my laptop can't even handle running it for 15 seconds. I use AT&T U-Verse for my ISP. But then I run something simple, like Minecraft, and my frame-rate is terrible like 15 minutes into the game, and I'm not even playing on a multiplayer server! I've been hunting for some answers for about 2 months now, hopefully someone here can help me
I've run tests on Speednet.com, and my current upload speed (tested today) is 0.12 Megabytes per second, and my download speed is 0.72 Megabytes per second, with a Ping Latency of 45ms. I'm confused because with a Ping of less than 50, my games should run great according to other people on the web, but my download/upload speeds are way below the global average. I've tried different servers & I get pretty much the same results.
So since Speedtest.net didn't give me answers, I ran a tracert from my computer to Google.com in Command Prompt & came up with this:
1 1 ms 2 ms 1 ms 192.168.1.254

Now from what I've read on other forums, I've concluded that I shouldn't be getting all these other IP addresses, but #1 I don't know where all these other IPs came from, and #2 I don't know how to get rid of them if they're causing problems.
If there's something else that I should do, please tell me so that I may do it, or if there's other information that anyone needs, please let me know so that I may supply it. I would really appreciate any help from other people, even if it's just a point in the right direction
