I've read a lot of posts about this subject, but still have not found any information that can help me. I'm on a Droid X using USB tethering via PDANet and find it impossible to play WoW and other similar MMOs. The weird thing is, I can play Team Fortress 2, World of Tanks and Eve Online just fine with around 200ms. Granted, not that great, but still playable.
While playing WoW, I start off at about 150ms and slowly go up to about 5000+ms. It just gets progressively worse and worse. Checking the tether data while playing shows it going EXTREMELY slow compared to while in use doing other things besides WoW. Does anyone know something I could do to fix this? It just doesn't seem like it's working correctly.
FYI, all Firewalls and Malware protection programs are off on computer. On phone, I have manually shut down all background apps and turned off Background Data. (Even though the stupid apps keeping opening themselves up. Like ones I don't even use EVER)
Here's my speedtest score. Slow yes, but it still plays most games except WoW, Rift and other like MMOs.
