Just wondering on this..I don't have a desk top pc..i do everything with my laptop...when playing cod..i run the duma interface so I can watch ping and who I'm connecting too etc....I could always notice playing blops3 when someone was using their cellphone on Wi-Fi cause it would feel a little laggy. My question is do you guys think when using my laptop to hardwire it from the duma and not go Wi-Fi or use a ethernet cable while playing?...or could it just be me and it makes no difference?

I don't really understand the last part, could you clarify?

 

I can't tell how you're setup, console wired to R1 or sounds like connected through laptop as like a bridge?

It wouldn't cause lag in the game to leave the laptop looking at the map over wifi.

 

But because you're on wifi I suppose the ping graph could be influenced, any spikes you see on the graph could be caused by you viewing the graph over wifi when they're not actually there (unless I've misunderstood).

 

In my experience, keeping the map/graph open while you're gaming just causes you to get killed more because your attention is not 100% on the game.

Yeah that's not going to cause any problems, I just meant when people watch the ping graph throughout the game.
