adding another router

<< < (3/3)

Harry Whole:
I am getting a lot of lag/rubberbanding in game... Can I set up gaming using two routers?

You'll induce more lag that way...It's preferred to use one router and connect the game console to the host router that is connected to the ISP modem.

Something things to try:
What ISP Service do you have? Cable or DSL?
What ISP Modem do you have? Stand Alone or built in router?
What ISP Modem make and model do you have?
If this modem has a built in router, it's best to bridge the modem. Having 2 routers on the same line can cause connection problems.

Ensure DNS IP addresses are being filled in under Setup/Internet/Manual? You can find these under Status/Device Info/Wan section.
Turn off Advanced DNS Services if you have this option under Setup/Internet/Manual.
Turn on DNS Relay under Setup/Networking.
Setup DHCP reserved IP addresses for all devices on the router.
Ensure devices are set to auto obtain an IP address.
Set Firewall settings to Endpoint Independent for TCP and UDP.

Also review the DGL-4500 Gaming and Gamefuel for XBL. It works well.

Let us know if you need more help. Can use and review your settings with you.

Harry Whole:
What I could do the is run the modem to a jack which the jack is wired to the upstairs room. I then run the wireless there.... I have Charter Cable and the modem says UBEE D3....

I did set up the gamefuel this morning but have not tried it yet.....

Thats a good idea too. Keep us posted on the results.
