Online Games and connection issues

 How best should i go about testing wether its the game service or my isp at fault for "online gaming" such as MMOs, multiplayer etc. Having alot of disconnections with a game im currently playing, hard to diagnose the problem as im not tech savvy 🙂 

 

Thanks for any advice.

Re: Online Games and connection issues

You did not state which games you are having problems with,but if you are using wifi [wireless] to connect to the game servers then there could be interference coming from anywhere.?

So always use an ethernet [wired] connection for all online gaming.

There could also be a problem with the gaming server[s] or the distance to them is causing too much latency.?

Yes m8, Ironman is write. Always use ethernet to your consoles, dont even entertain wireless for online gaming to your 360, PS3 etc... Use wireless for your handhelds, DS3, Vita etc.. but consoles, a no go!.
