    Haven't tried this yet, but sort of posting this for my own benefit, as well as others that may not have heard of this:

    Reduce game network latency in Windows 7 or Vista Life & Code

    Does it work? Is it worth doing in Vista?

    I heard as long as you use the fix for Windows XP with your Windows 7/Vista Operating System, it works great. If you use the section from that link specifically for Vista/7, it won't reduce it as much.

    It was posted by a guy on the forums from Australia, who saw his average latency on Silvermoon drop by around 150-200ms.

    Shame my main computer back at the guest house isn't a windows box or I'd try it myself. :(

    Tried it out, had 147 Ping, down to 63, that's a nice improvement.

    It does work on Windows XP, I'm fairly certain I had posted this before :s

    But then again it was years ago, I think, so it was probably deleted with rollbacks or whatnot xd

    I used it. Ping dropped by roughly 100, so i'm at 200-300 instead of 300-400 now lol.
