Minimum Internet Requirements

#1_SignalPosted 6/24/2013 6:20:17 AM
What do you guys think are the minimum requirements internet speed to have a decent gaming connection?

What's the speed of the Wii U or the Wii for that matter?

Thanks

Got no idea. But a good way to improve is to put your Wii/Wii U at the highest QoS priority in your WiFi's settings

Wow, I'm impressed.


@Op, minimum speed required is probably 1.5Mbps or less, because um... Slow bandwidth won't make your game lag, unless there is other people using the internet for other things. ( which should not be an issue assuming you've set up QOS like Gabe said )


The relevant measurements are, in order of relevancy:
Packet Loss.
Ping.
Jitter.

I may have some bad news. We're considering moving to a place that doesn't have cabled internet. That means DSL or Satellite.

ATT DSL is really slow, fastest possible connection there is 3 Mbps download and 512 Kbps upload.

I talked to the satellite guy this morning, and while their speed is pretty good, 12 Mbps download and 3 Mbps upload, their latency is pretty high. He said 600 ms ping times were typical.

Tell them you're going to be doing Voice over IP, working from a home office.

If they start stuttering and mumbling, you're in trouble.


look into ATT, 600 ping will not be playable for anything.
I get faster ping to south korea.

Not even exaggerating.

QoS means Quality of Service. If you make Wii at "Highest" priority it helps

The best ATT can do there is 3 Mbps download and 512 Kbps upload. That sounds pretty terrible.

I'm so unhappy.

3Mbps w/att is what I played Tcon at.
and I had decent ping.

And Youtube would still work, and really who needs more than that.
