This trick works for everyone, and I do mean everyone. It works in EVERY game as well!

It will lower your latency no matter what unless you have a real connection problem, like 5000ms ping... At which point it may give you 4300ms ping.

When I tested it, I dropped from 140ms ping, to now 43ms avg. woot! =)


No it's not rick rolled you ding bags. :p

Does this works on Vista? I tried, nothing happened.

Yes, there is a method that works for vista, I'll need to find that link...

EDIT: You just have to restart your computer, as apposed to restarting the connection. :p

There is a hotfix to download for Vista users, but that's ONLY if you don't have/want Service Pack 1. I'll provide that only if someone actually is not using SP1.

I'm not sure if I got SP1. Pressing Windows key + Pause I see: Windows Vista Home Premium. Copyright bla bla bla... Thats all. My Vista is original btw. Any way I could see if it has SP1?

PS: I did disable/re-enable my network card, I also reset the PC, I've also tried to kill the bridge I had between my 2 network cards, I tried removing the router too. Didn't notice any change. I feel like that cat on your avatar...

I'm on a boring conference call right now, so I figured I would do a little research. I found this:

http://mattgadient.com/2007/12/13/kb935458-v2-vista-hotfix-for-tcpackfrequency/

The site has a link to a hotfix for Vista.

SP1 info is under control panel then system. If you don't have it than yes, that would be the solution.

EDIT: wow cool, thanks for windows+pause hotkey! lol
Now get me one for device manager and one for network connections. >: )

It's gotta get moved out of the public forums. This information cannot fall in the hands of the horde.

I can't watch the video right now, but I am guessing this fix is dependent on what software you're using. In Counterstrike I always have between 15ms(!!!) and maybe 60ms max, but always 130+ in WOW. I expect either the network WOW uses has something that causes the problem, or the game itself (perhaps among other games as well with same netcode design).
