Hello all, Im currently running a Call of Duty 4 game server and have been the last three days from a dedicated computer on my LAN. The server is available to the internet its not just local. Im trying to get the best performance for the server i can and was wondering what settings i should have on the NIC card on the server to maybe scrape a little less latency between the clients that connect. I can currently get about 50-60 average from a fellow UK client, to compare Spain is about 130. Ok this maybe frowned upon but im currently hosting the server on a 20mb VIRGIN DSL line. I believe the bandwidth's 768kbs UP and obviously 20mb down... Although im only getting about 600-700kb at certain times MAX download. The server currently has a maxclient setting of 14 and maxrate setting of 5500, (it goes up to 25000) i believe this allows 5.5kb/s bandwidth for each client so the DSL line can handle... The servers motherboard is a MSI neo3 gold edition 754 The processor is an AMD 64 Athlon 3400+ The ram is 1gb Hyper X 2x512 The HDD is 500gb sata The performance of the PC is more than enought to power the server. The router is a Linksys DSL BEFSX41 Can any network experts tell me ways to improve latency in anyway? I do not want to run DMZ because of the security risks but i am told this could increase performance. Im willing to try anything!
