i had a hard time understanding most of that post. HOwever what i got was you want to get more speed out of your connection to game people further away (diff country right?)

YOu also mentioned hop count, which is how many routers the packets take to their destination (you wont be able to change this if that is the route they take!)

There is only so much you can do about slow connections. YOu have to make sure you have a fast connection on your end, and he has one on his end. Everything in the middle is up to the infrastructure in between you guys' ISP's.

Once again i couldn't really understand you much but i hope this helps some. :(

from what i read your cable connection should be more than enough for gaming. Make sure that nothing else is feeding off that connection while playing. Sometimes i get lag if im gaming while my wife is downloading something. Usually not but sometimes.

Im not too familure with your router, maybe someone else can help with that. If you did a traceroute and only had one hop between you and him then you must be pretty close and that shouldn't be the problem. 1 hop count would be a good thing.

I did a tracerount with my pc and 360 both on and while play and dl still the same 1 hop. and a ttl value of 64. I all ways have my pc on while playing. I did have lag when I use a linksys router. but I switch to the dlink I dont have much lag with it. I may have been the host the wasnt strong enought to host the game that was causeing the lag.
Thank RoscoPColtrane for the help :thumb: :beer:
