What does it do?

Leatrix Latency Fix will reduce your online gaming latency significantly by increasing the frequency of TCP acknowledgements sent to the game server. For the technically minded, this is a program which will modify TCPAckFrequency.

You will see reduced latency in many online games including World of Warcraft, WildStar, Heroes of the Storm, Elder Scrolls Online, Guild Wars 2, Diablo 3, Star Wars: The Old Republic, Rift and more.

Note that Leatrix Latency Fix performs a different modification to the 'Optimise Network for Speed' setting in World of Warcraft. They are not the same thing and can be used together (more information on this in the FAQ).

System Requirements
  • Windows 7, 8, 10, Vista (SP1+) or XP (SP3).
  • Both 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Windows are supported.
Macintosh users should read the guide here.

Installation Instructions

You can watch a short installation video here.

Simply download the zip file, extract it and then run Leatrix_Latency_Fix_3.00.exe. When the program launches, click the Install button. You will see the status change from 'Not Installed' to 'Installed'. You need to restart your computer (or disable/enable your network card) for the changes to take effect.

Your Windows account needs to have Administrator rights in order to install or remove Leatrix Latency Fix. If your Windows account doesn't have Administrator rights, you will be prompted for the credentials of an account that does have them.

After Leatrix Latency Fix has been installed, you can login to your online games with reduced latency!

To uninstall Leatrix Latency Fix, click the remove button and restart your computer.

For reference, the status line in the program will show 3 possible tags. 'Installed' indicates that all network interfaces have been modified for reduced latency. 'Not Installed' indicates that no network interfaces are modified for reduced latency. 'Partially Installed' indicates that some network interfaces have been modified for reduced latency. You will see this status tag if you add a new network card (or perhaps a USB modem) after the installation of Leatrix Latency Fix.

Errors and Unexpected Behaviour

If you have any problems with the program, please click here to send me a message. Include your operating system and service pack as well as any relevant information (such as error messages). You can also try version 2 if you prefer (available here). Version 2 requires the Microsoft.net Framework (available here) but the mechanics are identical to version 3. You can watch a short installation video for version 2 here.

If you are having problems downloading from Wowinterface, please use this link on Dropbox (this link is subject to change so please don't share it elsewhere).

More Information

There is a FAQ covering pretty much everything here and there is a short installation video tutorial here.

To ensure that people always use the genuine Leatrix Latency Fix program, please don't publish it elsewhere. It's completely free so there is no need to. Please link to www.leatrix.com instead.

Just wanted to chime in, I'm on Vista 32 sp2 and after running an earlier version of Latency Fix (I'm pretty sure it was when you first uploaded it here under a different name), I went from 300-400 ms down to 70-110ms in Dalaran as well as in 25 Man Trials and Uld.

I have a link to LLF on my UI page and often recommend it to guildies and friends. Thanks for helping out the community, it's really appreciated.

Leatrix, I <3 U

Seriously, I tried manually fixing my ping several times to no avail (with various online fixes). Your fix worked like a charm!

I live in AZ and my wow server is physically located in Boston, MA.

I went from a 250-310ms ping to a 125-135ms ping with your fix. I'm operating on a Vista 64 bit SP 2 machine.

Unbelievably, you've fixed my ping and I appreciate all of your efforts...donation inc!

Edit: Hmm, seems to be no way to donate to you for your work? Or am I missing something?

My results after testing this in Aion.

I used the command /ping a number of times in a area with few people zoomed-in looking at the floor (low CPU/bus usage).
OS: Windows 7 64-bit
NIC: nVidia nForce GBit Ethernet
ISP: BBB ADSL 24/1

Code:
           Before  After   Difference
Average     184.6    88.2    96.4
Max         272     125     147
Min         109      59      50
So my average ping went from 185ms to 88ms.
