"Almost, but not quite, it adds an extra 20 - 30 ms of lag time to all games."3.0 starson by tortch
Pros: allows you to play wirelessly, and allows you to play wireless system link with a neighbor
Cons: Signal strength is good, but not near perfect, which is required for lag free fps games
Summary: Everyone keeps talking about how they still have good signal strength or a good ping time while playing on it.
and they will say they still had 3 out of 4 bars online or something. but when playing games that actually give a real ping time, you will see that your ping will be 20-30 ms higher than if you used a ethernet cable.
Do you remember when wireless controllers first came out and there would be an annoying split second between the time you shoot, till the time the gun actually shoots, well its the same thing here.
To conclude, if you are a serious online gammer, you know that a split second is the difference between life and death, and the added lag of this wireless adapter will help you lose that fight day in and day out.
my ping went from being the lowest out of everyone playing with me, except the host, to being average, so if your someone that already has an average ping, you will have a high ping.
if you have a choice, just buy a long ethernet cable, you can order a 100ft cable for under 30$ online.
but if you are not into games where split second trigger pulls matter, and you only need it for streaming media from you pc this is just fine.
