Disable Nagle-Algorithm

    Nagle's algorithm is a means of improving the efficiency of TCP/IP networks by reducing the number of packets that need to be sent over the network. This will reduce your online gaming latency significantly by increasing the frequency of TCP acknowledgements sent to the game server.
  1. Open the command prompt and type IPCONFIG
  2. Look for IPv4 Address and write it down or remember it

  4. Looks through each of the keys under Interfaces until you find your IPv4 Address listed under DhcpIPAddress or IPAddress

    TcpAckFrequency
    TCPNoDelay
