Default Connection spikes

For the last week an a half I have been getting connection spikes, most noticable playing WoW. Its not graphics lag, because i see no stutter like normal lag.. i can be running with 5 people and stop at once but i still see them running and about 8 seconds later they all shoot back to being next to me, or in alot of cases, all dead in a second because i missed the fight still stuck in 9 seconds ago.

I have DSL, and ive tried to get help but no one has been able to so far, any other info needed to help ask.

Ive tried router resets with the whole unplugging an turning the comp off thing, has not helped.

Default Re: Connection spikes

I had this problem once also.

1. start --> run --> cmd

2. ipconfig/all and then remember/record your DNS server I.P and your local ip address(both should be 192.XXX.X.X)

3. type the DNS server into a browser

4. go to port forwarding

5. The following TCP ports need to be used by WoW:

3724
6112
6881-6999
37240

6. Save settings and tell me if it helped.

Go to start>run>cmd hit enter

type ipconfig and hit enter
You should have some information there, which should look something like this:
Ethernet adapter Local Area Connection 3:
Connection-specific DNS Suffix . : launchmodem.com
IP Address. . . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.4.100
Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . : 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.4.50
Mine is 192 addresses, replace mine with your addresses. You see the default gateway? Type that IP into your browser. Once you do that, you will be at the Web based interface of your router/modem. You should be prompted for a username and password- can't help you on that one. Once your in, there should be a tab called gaming/applications/port forwarding. Then follow the advice of elmonomalo. Post back if you still don't understand, well get you there!

Naah generally the 10.X.X.X is used for business and 192.168.X.X is used for home.

Also your DNS server can be anything, doesn't nesscairly have to be your router


If you have something like this it's still fine

Ethernet adapter LAN:

Connection-specific DNS Suffix . : mayhew.ca
Description . . . . . . . . . . . : 3Com EtherLink XL 10/100 PCI TX NIC
(3C905B-TX)
Physical Address. . . . . . . . . : 00-50-04-00-BL-8H
Dhcp Enabled. . . . . . . . . . . : Yes
Autoconfiguration Enabled . . . . : Yes
IP Address. . . . . . . . . . . . : 10.10.10.52
Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . : 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . : 10.10.10.1
10.10.10.11
DHCP Server . . . . . . . . . . . : 10.10.10.1
DNS Servers . . . . . . . . . . . : 206.47.244.56
206.47.244.14
Lease Obtained. . . . . . . . . . : Saturday, December 02, 2006 3:38:40
PM
Lease Expires . . . . . . . . . . : Monday, December 04, 2006 3:38:40 PM

No reason to at all, both numbers are valid addresses.

I believe the reason for splitting business and home into different ranges was so that you couldn't have a moron completely mess up a business network by plugging in his crap that he bought at best buy or w/e.

Well as long as your not noticing an overall poor internet connection, I would recomend trying the port fowarding as described above.

My default gateway is a 10.x.x.xx and putting that into a browser doesnt do anything.

Default Re: Connection spikes

ok, i will try to explain more thoroughly. Also... you said your default gateway didn't work... try using your DHCP Server and if that doesn't work tell us the exact model of your router.

1. Start --> Run --> cmd
-----type ipconfig/all (at the C:/> prompt)
----------record your DNS IP Address and IP Address

2. Open Mozilla/IExplorer/Opera or any other browser you may have

3. Type the DNS IP Address into the url box

(Like others who responded have said... the ip address that you get is usually for a business network, but that is fine. Enter exactly what you see into a browsers url address box.)|

|
V



|
V

4. A window should appear similar to the photo shown below...
(your router may be different, I have a Belkin.)

|
V



|
V

5. Navigate and find "port forwarding" or in my case "application gateways"

6.Enter the ports to be forwarded

|
V



|
V

7. Apply changes and see if it helps.

Elmonomalo

Default Re: Connection spikes

I am starting to think maybe my web browsing spikes may be the same deal.. because lately its been taking awhile to load sites and 2 minutes later they load fine again. At first i didnt want to think they were the same because you know, sites load slow sometimes.

If this is the case, then sometings up with my overal internet connection maybe?
