Default Online Gaming With Mini 9 - 02-27-2009, 10:22 AM

Gday all,
I was just wondering, would i be able to play Urban Terror (free fps game, built from quake 3 engine) online?? I would be using a Ethernet connection(i play everything online on my desktop, with no lag), and have the game extremely playable internet speed wise (ping of like 30 in game). Typically i would be on servers with 23 other people. I only ask because, browsing through the gaming section, someone said wow was unplayable online with more then something like 5 other players. so could the mini handle online play?

Cheers,
Ben

why would you game using the wifi??? when you could use the 10/100 ethernet and get a much better internet connection?? that seems a bit pointless to me.

I play UT4 with wifi and a ping in the 40's... Server size less than 20 players. I prefer around 10 on maps like riyadh, etc. very playable.

the connection between you and your router makes little difference (assuming you are getting a 'good' wireless connection),compared to the connection between your router/modem and other players on the internet

Coming from experience,theres not much difference,especially if the router is in the same room

Seconded, wireless G is 54Mbps, whereas "Fast" DSL is 3Mbps, Fios is 20Mbps, a T3 connection is 45Mbps
It is easy to see where the bottleneck is
