Digital gaming has evolved to an unprecedented scale and is still evolving. Playing against pre-programmed enemies are a thing of past. The latest trend – humans competing against humans. Players can even form teams, plan their attacks, coordinate their gameplay and take against the other set of players. The ability to communicate with the fellow players real-time through voice or text magnifies the fun. But, this kind of games needs an appropriate internet connection to support an uninterrupted gameplay. If you are an online player or if you have the idea of becoming one soon, then this post is exactly for you as steps to set up the network for gaming is explained here.One of the key components of the network that lays the foundation for a strong internet connection is the bandwidth. It is nothing but the limits of the data that can be sent and received through the physical cable or via radio frequencies. In other words, it is like the diameter of the water pipe, the more the diameter the higher will be the rate of flow of water.Since it is now clear that the cable modem and router plays a crucial role, you should make sure that they run on the latest firmware. This is because the latest updates might make the router faster. It is recommended to check the manufacturer’s site right away. Furthermore, connecting the computer directly with the modem and performing a speed test can reveal if the speed from the internet service provider is low. Sometimes people would end up tweaking almost all the components of the home network without realising that the fault is with the service provider.
