      Internet struggling to cope with MW3 Online

      Hi,

      I've just stumbled across this forum today and thought I'd ask for some advice before contacting Sky.

      My broadband, although not particularly fast, has held up well to the hours and hours spent on Call of Duty. I put my PS3 into a DMZ about 6 months ago - online gaming has run smoothly and I started to pull host for my fair share of matches

      Loaded up MW3 on release last week... and the connection has been dreadful. Constant screen freezing, the game lags terribly. I wondered if something had happened to my connection but my old games feel fine and my speeds haven't changed.

      Contacted Activison, they suggested I ask Sky if they're "Throttling, packet shaping or limiting bandwidth" and that I "might also want to get a line test." in addition to me answering their questions (listed below if they're of any use beyond research purposes...)

      - Who is your Internet Service Provider?:
      - Do you have a bundle package (cable/internet/phone)?:
      - Zip Code:
      - Router Make/Model #:
      - Modem Make/Model #:
      - PSN ID:
      - Where was the game purchased (Best Buy, GameStop, etc.)?
      - What was the date where you first experienced this issue?
      - What game type do you normally play (Domination, TDM, etc.)?


      There's a distinct split among people I know who are experiencing either none of these problems OR identical issues.

      Any ideas what the difference could be? Will this 'Gaming Profile' make have an impact if all the other games play fine? What should I be asking Sky to try short of blaming Activision for producing a shoddy game!?!

      Advice will really be appreciated, thanks

      James

      I don't know if I have the latest router, I took a stab in the dark on the sign up page. It's black, replaced the old white one a few years back.

      The PS3 is always connected by an ethernet cable. My download speed always reduces to 5000-6000kbps and upload to 500-600kbps when the PS3 does its own speed test. It's very consistent around that mark.

      There must be a difference between our setups, surely? Black Ops (the ridiculous number of crashes aside) ran well online for me.

      In the same way there are plenty of people playing MW3 the way it was intended (given the number of people I've asked and watching YouTube videos of games played on slower internet connections than mine) they must have set their kit up differently to me...

      Your stats are poor and show you are on G.DMT rather than ADSL2+. With your attenuation you should have a sync speed of 12-13mbps. Can you please plug into the Test socket and post your stats from there.

      Watched my granddaughter play at the weekend, she was kicking some serious butt on a miserable 2Mb Plusnet connection with god knows what ping.

      I'll be able to do that later this evening and will post results on straight away. Should be done by 7pm.

      Unlimited as well. I'm told by Sky that 7mbps is the maximum achievable speed given the distance to the exchange.
