Re: Lag Spikes, Lag on Xbox as well
said by Ryancharter :That just about defeats the purpose of having a router, doesn't it? Same with disabling SPI, too, right? May as well just disable every setting in there, in that case.
I do not. I noticed something today though. I have a netgear wndr4300 and I was messing with the settings and I put my IP on a DMZ and the lag severely diminished. Any other steps I can take?
The Firefox alternative.
You still get some security benefits with SPI disabled. It's a nice-to-have feature, but a router probably shouldn't be your primary security implementation anyway.
Besides, it's a troubleshooting step. If turning off SPI fixes it, then you see if the router vendor has updated firmware that fixes SPI.
