Ps4. High ping. Poor gaming.

Hi there,
Ive been having problems whilst gaming for quite some time now. I'm playing call of duty black ops 3 on a ps4. I've done all the calls to your help line, I've had the engineer at the house, I've had another ps4 connected to it. But still the same fault persists. Whilst gaming the ping goes to over 400 and the drops away down again. So I end up running into walls while trying to walk through a door. I'm not that tech savvy but I think I port forwarded as described on the game cause nat type was strict. Help I'm going mad. Thanks in advance. Charlie.

Hi Charlie76,

 

Thanks for dropping into the community, though the lag and ping problems in CoD on your PS4 sound frustrating.

 

I've run a few follow up checks on your connection from this end and can't see any issues that would cause the in game latency problems you describe, is your connection wired or wireless?

 

If you've not yet tried it then dropping your Hub into modem mode and testing may also be an idea.

 

Let us know how it goes.

Re: Ps4. High ping. Poor gaming.

If I did change it to modem mode would I need a cable to connect to the ps4 and would my phone, iPads etc still work?

Yes you would need an Ethernet cable as modem mode turns off the hub's wireless router functions, which answers your second question no those devices wouldn't work while the hub was in modem mode.  Don't panic, this is not being suggested as a permanent solution but merely a test to see if it makes a difference to your problem.

Re: Ps4. High ping. Poor gaming.

Hi Charlie76

Did you manage to try modem mode as Ralph suggested to see if it helps with this BO3 issue? Can you also let us know if there's a general improvement whilst connected over ethernet? Do these problems only happen on this game or with others too? I've been playing BO3 quite a bit lately and I've had some similar issues in the evening with popular games like"domination" and "team death match" but other were ok.

Speak soon Smiley Happy
