Hello, after buying a new router - D-Link DIR-625, I've been getting a ton of lag when playing World of Warcraft (usually around 4k ping). I have been playing WoW for a while now and this is the first time encountering this kind of problem. I've also tried port forwarding but it did not help much. I don't believe it's my video card or anything like that as I get a good 60 fps. My internet is Shaw High Speed Internet and I am not at my limit for downloading or anything like that and I am using a wired connection. Can anyone help me? Thank you for your time. (Note: I'm pretty new to this router thing as well, so I don't know if it really is the router's fault).

If your Frames per second is high but your Game latency is high then you have a connection issue not a video card issue. If I were to guess it could be your router, but someone with more knowledge on routers could help you better.

Sounds like you got an unreliable ISP, or the server you play on is getting to it's limit.

Also note that in large cities in Warcraft you can get very laggy, when I played Warcraft, I had 50mbps/20mbps FiOS, and very high FPS, but at night when everybody was online, when I went into a big city, I would get horrible lag.

Also, video card lag and internet lag is a big difference, BUT, 60 FPS is quite low, and can be pretty choppy, and make it look like internet lag, but 4,000ms ping is ridiculously high.

Are you sure you don't have bittorrent running, or spyware? Bittorrent eats up your bandwidth and will lag the hell out of you.

So if I understand this correctly, if you bypass your new router the game returns to normal... no more lag/high ping.

The first thing I might try is to check your firmware and make sure you have the latest.

I suggest you also look/post here:

And if this is your ISP here:
