Why are my online gaming experiences so bad - DMZ & Fast Path

Hi All


I thought I'd throw this out there as I'm baffled at the experience that I get and this is my last hope.

I thought it may just be Infinity Ward and the lag compensation but it seems to be on serveral games from different developers.  From Cars teleporting in online races to people appearing out of now where in First person shooters.

I understand that its peer to peer but surely it just can't be bad luck getting poor hosts each time for nearly 2 years.



I've tried serveral things, and several routers the last being a draytek 2800 and now I'm back on the HH3.

The PS4 is in the DMZ (also tried port forwarding as recommended by Sony) and fast path is enabled.

I'm using an Ethernet cable.

No Bell wire in master socket, plugged into the test socket.


Below you will find my BT Wholesale Speed test. reports Line Quality = A , MOS 4.39

Packet Loss 0%

Ping 29ms

Jitter 0ms


Some test examples of Ping (only pc on the network and wired)

BT Wholesale Speed Test                  30-40ms            45-63ms                                    22-56ms                          11-12ms


Strange how the pings to a BT server on the BT network is slower than other



Any input would be appreciated.


Thanks in advance

Re: Why are my online gaming experiences so bad - DMZ & Fast Path

i have had the same thing, if you find a way on how this could be fixed. please let me know. i've recently moved from sky to bt as i were told this could be better for playing video games. but it has been worse than before. i would normaly average 9 - 14 download and 0.40 - 1.20 upload speed. but all of a sudden i am getting around 7 - 8.30 download speed and 0.47 or under upload speed.


i play xbox and like you said. you get those lag spikes. i play call of duty: ghosts and i run around, but get teleported back. i know it isnt the bad host connection. i know its a BT issue.
