Untuk para gamers yang memiliki masalah Ping gede atau lag dapat diatasi dengan cara cara seperti berikut ini:
Check Server Latency
If you are attempting to connect to a server that is geographically distant or if you are not using a high-speed connection it is important to check the server’s Latency (this will appear to the left of the window in the server browser).
Latency represents the amount of time it takes information to reach the server from your machine – higher latency means a greater likelihood of lag.
Check Content Server Region
Games such as Left 4 Dead automaically detect which region you are in, helping to determine the best server to connect you to. You can double-check your region by starting Steam, going to File > Settings > Downloads tab and under Download region and selecting the region that you are in or the one closest to you.
Examine Background Applications and Running Processes
Background applications – especially programs which require bandwidth (chat clients, FTP programs, web browsers, etc) – may contribute to choppy gameplay, a low framerate, and other symptoms of lag.
Please see the Disabling Background Applications topic for instructions to disable any unnecessary background applications before loading Steam.
Optimize Router Settings and Environment
It is important to maintain an appropriate environment for your router and other electronics. Ideally, your router should be in a well-ventilated area where it will not overheat. Overheating routers have been reported to cause network connectivity issues and symptoms of lag.
In addition to ensuring your router is operating at optimum levels, it may be useful to forward gaming-related ports to your machine if you are the only user on your home network who will be playing Steam games. Please see the Required Ports for Steam list to see which Steam and game ports to forward.
Experiment with Client Rates
The Client Rate setting determines how many packets the game server sends to your machine to keep it synchronized – if this rate is set too high you may be missing some of the game data (which will cause lag).
Please see the Setting Client Rates topic if you would like more information on experimenting with your Client Rate setting to determine if a lower rate will reduce lag over your connection.
Troubleshooting Network Connectivity Issues
Please follow the steps below to diagnose network connectivity issues within Steam:
- RouterBefore trying anything else, try bypassing your router by connecting your computer directly to your modem.
If the issue disappears after bypassing your router, please refer to the Using a Router with Steam topic for instructions on configuring your router.
Note: running your router in DMZ mode is not supported by Steam and may result in connection issues.
Also, wireless connections are not recommended for online gaming.
To ensure reliability, make sure you are using a wired connection to the internet.
- FirewallSee the Using a Firewall with Steam topic for instructions to properly configure your firewall for Steam.
Note: If you are installing Steam for the first time or Steam has recently been updated, a firewall may be preventing Steam from connecting to the Steam Network – even if Steam worked correctly before the update was applied.
- Background ApplicationsReview the Programs which interfere with Steam and reconfigure, disable or uninstall any programs which may be preventing Steam and Valve games from connecting.
- Viruses, Trojans, Adware and SpywareIf issues persist, scan your computer for Spyware, Adware, and Viruses Interfering with Steam.
