World of Warcraft Latency Help!!!

Message 1 of 3

I have been playing the online MMO World of Warcraft for several years now.  Just recently there was a patch that has made the in game latency horrific rendering the game unplayable.  Here is the tracert I ran:


Tracing route to []
over a maximum of 30 hops:

  1    <1 ms     2 ms     2 ms  Wireless_Broadband_Router.home []
  2     6 ms     7 ms     7 ms []
  3    12 ms     7 ms     6 ms []
  4    16 ms     8 ms    10 ms []
  5    21 ms     9 ms    10 ms  0.xe-8-1-0.BR1.DFW13.ALTER.NET []
  6    13 ms  4014940 ms    10 ms
  7  4016367 ms    44 ms    44 ms []
  8    43 ms    44 ms    44 ms []
  9    47 ms    49 ms    47 ms []
 10    50 ms    46 ms    51 ms []
 11    50 ms    44 ms    45 ms
 12    50 ms    44 ms    44 ms
 13     *        *  reports: Destination net unreachable.

Trace complete.


I have done all of the suggested fixes from Blizzard in regards to possibly fixing my latency to no avail.  Have any of you had problems like this before?  If so how did you fix it?  Thanks!

Hi. The only thing I'd recommend since you've already spoken to the game maker is either Google it or search Youtube. I did a quick search for "World of Warcraft Latency", and there were a ton of suggestions for WOW as well as just online gaming in general. Youtube looked especially promising because you not only get to see how they're configuring, but the comments by other users tells you if it really worked or not. If you did that already, then you may have to wait for Blizzard to come up with a fix on their end. Sorry.
