I wonder if there is an app that would help the hotspot speed.


PS - I am really lost here.

Obviously part of lag is related to ping time. My ping time using my iPhone hotspot is around 115 ms. That means 0.115 seconds, or approximately 1/10 of a second. From everything I've read, as long as you're in the 100 ms ballpark, you're ok for FPS.

I played Call of Duty Ghosts using my iPhone hotspot and it was fine. In fact I couldn't tell any difference at all between that and my current cable internet, which usually pings around 15 ms. This is except for one instance when I squeezed the trigger and I felt that nothing happened, but I died one instant later, so I can't be sure.

A while back Chain asked people to post their ping times, but not too many people did. It might be worth digging up that old thread.

You could maybe get a cradle point router that will work with that phone. Then the Wii could connect to that router just like any other. Wired or wireless.

If that doesn't work you can try something like this:

Ignore everything else, but check my last two posts on that page. I made up my own way to get my phone to work with the Wii. Before doing this my wii would connect to that phone, but it would only stay connected for 19 minutes. (I don't know why). So I had to come up with what's in the last two posts of that thread instead and it worked. Something like that will probably work just as well with your phone.

In short, there is a way to make this work . If you can't find a compatible cradlepoint router (the easiest and best solution) then something like what I posted in that forum will work. There is a way. We just have to find it.

I talked with the guys at 3gstore a couple of days ago and they recommended a Surf On-the-Go router to work with my iPhone, so I ordered that. It's supposed to arrive Friday, so we'll see. I asked them about hotspots independent of my phone and he recommended the SOHO-millenium combo, but that will be plan B.

Also, so much good information in the CoD thread. Hopefully I won't have to go to those lengths, but we'll see.

Thank so much for the help and encouragement.

You're welcome :) I haven't checked the specs on that router. Did you mention that you wanted to use it for gaming when you talked to them? Because you would want one where you can forward your ports and all that jazz. Maybe even get one with QOS (quality of service) as well. If NAT type is a concern, it make take some tweaking on the phone and on the router to get a moderate or open NAT. IDK. I haven't used an Iphone. I used an MBR900 and MBR95 cradlepoint routers with different modems/hotspots. Each setup, even wired or wireless, took different tweaking of both the modems, and the routers to get a moderate or open nat type. I can help you figure out anything you need with getting it to work when I have spare time. Though those 3gstore folks are pretty darn good. You can also post stuff on their forums and search their forums for answers. Some routers you may even need to change the firmware on as certain firmwares are better for gaming. I'm using the MBR95 right now and I had to downgrade the firmware to get a better gaming experience.

Of course now I don't have to worry about that. I finally moved into civilization last month and got cable internet. I got tired of the data cap I had with Verizon.
