I live in a house with a couple roomates and we all wanna play LoL at the same time (whether it be in the same game or not). However, if we all try to play at the same time we get some insane lag issues. Our regular internet speeds are fine from this one router. Is there something i should do with ports to fix this problem?
Some assistance please,
EDIT: Two of us can play at same time just fine
I would head over to http://netalyzr.icsi.berkeley.edu/ and run the test there to have it report a profile of your network and connection.
I'm not very well versed in router configuration and QoS settings, but having that report will save time for those who are able to assist you.
I did run into the exact same issue though around six months ago (the game worked with one or two people but never three), and it turned out that the uplink on my router (LinksysWRT120N) was inadequate and I ended up having to buy another router.
Kk, here's what netalyzer gave me.
Herm, well, im not buying a new router just so we can all play LoL, haha
Is your router old? It could be one of three things I can think of:
- Insufficient bandwidth to handle three players
- If you have port forwarding, that could cause problems for other users
- If your router is old, it may not be able to handle multi-connections forwarding the same ports. If you have UPnP (Universal Plug'n'Play), enable it on the router.
I have a similar problem. My desktop is rarely used and is plugged in via ethernet to my router. Whenever I turn on the computer, not even running any programs, League of Legends and every other game will have insane latency on any wireless computer. I use speedtest on the Desktop and my laptop and I have perfect speeds, 20mb dl and 3mb ul on both, but all my games have huge latency on my Laptop while my Desktop is perfectly normal.
Any idea? :/
I also cant have more then 3 ppl logged in to LoL in my house.
I did some comparisons myself. At my place I have a 15mbps-25mbps download connection with an upload of 1mbps and this problem is present in my house. Meanwhile at my friends house he has a 3mbps download connection and a 500kbps upload connection and the problem is no present there.
My guess is that there must be something wrong with the router, I have one of the new wireless linksys routers.
I am having the same issue, so I'll post here unless I'm told to post elsewhere... 3 people can NOT be logged into LoL at the same time. I have an 8mb connection through Midcontinent Communications, My router is a Linksys Wireless-N Home Router WRT120N by Cisco®.
I believe the issues is a max session cap on your router. Which simply translates into how much ram the router has for its routing tables. The game alone can use up to 7 sessions on its own. When you include other web applications like web browser, chat, email, voip. The max sessions on bottom end routers are easily exhausted. This is made worse with the more users on the same router.
Do a little research and try to find a router with around 200 session (connection) cap or more. This should give plenty of space for even a 5 man lan party.
