Will the people at my LAN party lag becuse of my slow Internet connection?

by on January 31, 2012

Q: I have a 512kb internet (yeah I know) and i’m going to buy a Asus switch with 8 ports to host a Xbox 360 LAN Party with 6 people. My question is, are the 6 people going to lag due to bad internet or is it going to be fine?

    The great thing about a LAN (Local Area Network) party is that it is all local and doesn’t use the Internet. So unless you’re trying to get into online games, which would be a little weird if you are having a LAN party, then you will be fine.

    If the plan is to have all 6 of you in the same room and go play online to own some n00bs then yeah you will have big problems but not just because of lag. Most games for consoles are setup such that you can really only have 1 gamer per Internet connection because they use specific ports.
