I see people mention Tomato/QoS once in awhile. Is it just software to prioritize your router's bandwidth? Does it work w/ Apple routers? How ez is it to configure?

It a replacement of the firmware on the router, only works on very specific models, nothing made by apple. It's relatively easy configure, easier than most stock firmwares and other custom firmwares. Most routers have some type of QoS, although apple doesn't.

I either hit a plateau or something is going on with the gameplay where I can't get any medium to high score streaks going. My k/d is even suffering.

All of this router talk has me itching to maybe upgrade. It seems that majority of the time i'm lagging. Would like some advice if upgrading devices would help me.

Modem: DLink DCM-202
Router: Netgear N300 (WNR2000 v2)
Switch: Monoprice 10/100 Mbps (M108)
Xbox 360 NAT: open
All connections are hardwired.

Comparing the throughput on the Netgear to the Asus (56u, 65u, 66u) makes the Netgear a joke.
If I should upgrade the router which should I choose?

(Also unrelated to Blops but was hoping it would help fix streaming hd video with DLNA)
Thanks

Have you guys noticed with any of the Sandy Ravage videos that when he is in a game, the enemy is never running at him or when they are they don't seem to be shooting at him. Also, his teammates always, always, always got his back. If he is about to get attacked from the side or rear, someone takes the enemy out.

When I a play, I am always looking at the wrong end of the barrel and it's a 50/50 chance I will survive. My teammates watches me get killed over and over. When I go for a flag, my teammate runs past me to go jerk off in a corner or some crap.

Feel free to hop into a game anytime with myself or Steel-temple (as long as you enjoy playing Hard Core).

If you want to run the cabling, I have all the crimp tools, jet line and fishtape here at work.. and can definitely "borrow" those things. You will have to buy your own cable, RJ45 connectors, wall plates, drill & saw. But trust me you will see how easy it is.

I technically live in Silver, Spring MD. But generally stay over my girlfriends house in Alexandria during the week. You can pay me with a 12pack of beer. I'll read up on the FIOS stuff in the meantime. Needs to start researching it heavily anyways, as I will be doing it to my own home in the near future.

I've put out a call to the Verizon tech that was at my house a month or so ago (very cool guy). He might swing by and help me with this (I'm looking into upgrading our connection to 75/35 or the 100/100). I've read on some sites that they (FIOS) have to install Ethernet in your house if you upgrade to the new quantum stuff.

If not, I'll definitely take you up on your offer. Very much appreciated!

Yes, I have noticed that. Now, I'm not even for a minute suggesting I could do as good as he does, or F1stacuffs does, but I sit there and look at their 50+ kill matches and sometimes think I could have gotten 35-40 because it often is like their enemies are just served up on a plate right in front of them. Like you, and probably 90% of others that play with randoms, my problem often is that NOBODY is playing for the team, most people will just let teammates get killed, as bait, to let themselves get a kill, and NOBODY seems to look at the mini map and say, "Ya know what, our entire rear is exposed here, maybe I should go back there, rather than staying with these three other teammates in the same spot".

That is kinda the problem with playing random public matches. Sadly, because of when I play, almost nobody on here is ever on, and unless I can play with my brother, when he comes over to the house, or my 12 year old, I always have to be the one covering the open spots, and probably my stats suffer for that, but I'm a team player and always want to win the game, so that is how I play.

I feel you man. When I started out with this game, I played care free and didn't let anything bother me and surprisingly I did really well and I had fun. Now, I am loving the game and I want to try out new things like some of the higher scorestreaks and things like that but I get frustrated because I find myself always providing support to randoms and when I don't get the same in return it makes me angry. Nothing I can do about it except bitch or find people to play with. I try to jump in games with the avs screw but that hasn't yield any successful gameplay for anyone.

Just a random tip for randoms - I've noticed when not playing with friends, the best thing to play is Search and Destroy. Even as a random I almost always get on a team where everyone is talking and calling stuff out in that game mode. With friends it's TDM FTW.
post #3674 of 4670
Problem with S&D is you get very little points when compared to Dom, Demo etc. If you are not trying to level then that's all well in good but for the rest of us that's bad.

Good tip except S&D is mind numbingly boring. I'd rather slog through Domination, Demolition, or TDM with randoms than play S&D with a party.

2nd that. I run and gun and when I die, i want to be able to respawn and continue on with the carnage. I just can't sit still and wait for something to happen. It's so boring and probably one of the reasons I don't use sniper rifles in the game.

I am still waiting for a night when we all get in a private match and have ourselves a royal rumble. biggrin.gif

I am in Chalupatron as well and never get invites anymore. The only person I've played with from AVS in a while is jitu and we had a good time. I play with a few non AVS guys and have a good time as well. So if you want to play feel free to add me as well.

Perhaps we should create our own clan. I can create one if you like. What should we call it?

Does anyone know if this is possible? Our house is not ethernet enabled, all co-ax. We've got phone jacks in some rooms that are going unused, is it possible to yank those out and replace with Ethernet (and run it down to a lower floor)? And plug an ethernet into the back of the router and into the jack for use downstairs?

Does that make sense?

They make coax adapters that will run 100mb service through coax and still have TV on that line

Nothing would please me more (game wise smile.gif ) than to team up with you guys here at AVS and play online. Sadly, I play early evenings, usually between 4:45 and 6:00 or so, and very few folks are home, or on, at that time. I'm fortunate that I go into work earlier in the day, and get off around 4:30, so if any of you are on, and you see me during the week, throw an invite my way and I will play. Sundays I typically team up with my brother and my oldest son and we fire up all the 360's at the house and try to kick some tail, but any other day, I'm usually playing solo. GiantM0nkeyMan is the gamertag so friend me if you haven't already guys.

I would love to get on that early but as soon as I come home from work, I get my workout out of the way so I can have dinner on time. Don't want to eat past 6pm so that's why i wont be able to get on xbl early. After 9 or 10 is when I am able to get on, however, weekend is open season biggrin.gif

My win streak isn't anything great. I think it's 7. Something low. WIn ratio is 1.01. I don't get it. What's wrong with someone posting a good game? It's not like I do that every day. I've gotten that high maybe 3x. Highest being 143-6. I play hardpoint. Not Dom. Swarms are easily 80% of my kills in game.

  • Hard Point -Carrier
  • PDW - Long Barrel
  • Ghost - Hard Line
  • Scavenger
  • Dexterity
  • C4


I can't play Domination for the life of me. I find Hard Point the best mode. Also easier to keep a high SPM. Score Streaks are VSAT-DOGS-SWARM

Get swarms once and it becomes pretty easy to loop them over and over.
