    How to port forward - reduce game lag

    Less lag by port forwarding

    You hear about 'port forwarding' as a way to improve your download and game speeds, but what exactly is port forwarding?

    Answer: Port forwarding is the redirecting of computer signals to follow specific electronic paths into your computer. If the computer signal can find its way into your computer a few milliseconds quicker, it will add up to be dramatic speed increases for your game or your downloading.

    This guide is the easiest way by far to forward your port whether you've done this before or are a beginner.

    First off let's see if you need your port open. Go to this site and enter your port for the server ie ut is usually 7777 & 7778

    http://www.canyouseeme.org/

    This is the perfect way of finding out if your port is open, if it says it is, then you should stop here. You don't need to worry about forwarding your port so your problem relates to something else.

    If it doesn't say your port is open then you should continue with this guide.

    Check this link to see the Supported Routers/Modems which is updated regularly.

    http://www.simpleportforwarding.com/supported-routers

    As you can see there is a wide range of modems available and don't worry if you don't see yours, which won't happen often as you can add a custom router.

    (1) First you need to visit http://www.simpleportforwarding.com/

    (2) Have a read if you want, scroll down and find the download locations. I usually use Majorgeeks.com

    (3) Now you will see download location, click on [email protected]

    (4) Once installed, open the program up.

    (5) You should have two screens up. One called "Simple Port Forwarding" and the other is called "Check List"

    (6) Don't worry if you only have the screen "Simple Port Forwarding up" - Just click on tools, then click getting started.

    (7) You will see that you now have the "Check List" screen.

    (8) Follow the 5 Abc steps below which you can see in your "Check List"

    (a) Update router list
    (b) Select Your router and set login information
    (c) Choose your ports you need to open
    (d) Update the router
    (e) Test the ports work

    This guide from start to finish will take 5 minutes tops, with the outcome your port being forwarded, thats how easy it is.

    UPDATE

    I was trying some things, and i was searching on my router and i found the same thing. Here i can do the same as the program but in "manual" way.

    UPDATE

    Error: I could not see your service on
    Reason: Connection timed out

    Sorry but that's a myth.
    There might be some rare individual cases where port forwarding could help but generally (99% of the time?) it won't change your gaming experience.
