Router Question

So, I've been playing a lot of MMORPGs and multiplayer games lately. To cut to the chase, my ping isn't doing very well and I'm out of options on what might be the cause of the higher than normal ping. I'm currently playing at around 90-120 in local servers, which is odd.

I recently found this list of "gaming" routers and I'm wondering if they do affect ping? Currently I'm just using the one that my ISP provided when they installed my internet.

Thanks in advance :thumbup:

I actually have the Asus router that is listed on that page, it has worked great for the last year or so by this point. Hardware probably isn't the issue here though, I really doubt you'll be looking at a significant increase in connection quality just due to replacing it unless your current router is 5+ years old.

It's around 3 or 4 years old now. I'm not sure if that counts, but it's looking pretty banged up now. Thanks for the input though, I'll try to call the company and see if they can do a line test or replace the old hardware. Thanks! :)

If you have dynamic IP you can force it to change by changing your MAC adress via free tool (simply change any digit). If you have static IP you need to ask your ISP to change it.
Sorry for my bad english - it's not my native language and I have difficulties with acquiring speaking/writing practice in my country. If I accidently insult you or say something wrong - I'm sorry, you can feel free to correct me.

Can vpn or proxy helps in this case? I get used to free vpn but it seems such kind of vpn is worthless and the speed is horrible. I read that proxy https://buy.fineproxy.org/eng can help to hide the IP address. Maybe I should try it.
