Resolve high latency in Windows® 7
What are the cause of high latency in Windows 7? How to prevent this issue?
Windows networks are not designed for online games. They are designed for general desktop computing in large networks where traffic efficiency has the highest priority. Network latency is not important at all and bundling acknowledgments together makes sense. Online game players are rather unique in that they would often use a single TCP based application for hours at a time and they would want to give that application priority over any other function of their PC. It is for these players that Leatrix Latency Fix is designed for. Leatrix Latency Fix should not be installed on computers where you want to put more emphasis on the network efficiency. This does not apply to most game players and having reduced latency is of considerably more importance.
The following things are cause, consequences and tips to fix high latency in windows 7:
- Leatrix Latency
- Installation Problem
Online games generally use the TCP protocol, which requires that the network segments sent to your computer be acknowledged in order to provide a reliable connection. While this is an efficient way of the dealing with them generally, the inevitable delays caused by the bundling process the increase latency considerably. Leatrix Latency Fix removes the acknowledgment bundling process so that an acknowledgment is sent immediately for every segment that is received. In a normal networking environment, you can priorities network efficiency over latency and use the Windows defaults.
If you have a problem while Leatrix Latency Fix is installed, remove every possible cause from your network. Keep in mind that most of the problems reported with Leatrix Latency Fix have been caused by the issues with the users own computer or network, this has proven to be the case time after time after time. There is also a removal script included in the download that will remove all traces of Leatrix Latency Fix on every network interface.
Running the remove script and restarting your computer is all you need to do to completely remove the Leatrix Latency Fix. If any problems after that, they are not caused by Leatrix Latency Fix. If the Checker script reports that Leatrix Latency Fix is not installed on any network interfaces, then it simply does not exist.
