4Mb/s Download Speed
0.2 Mb/s Upload Speed
How much of an improvement should I see when I upgrade my download speed from 4Mb/s to 10Mb/s and 0.2Mb/s upload speed to 1Mb/s? I have 20-40ms ping in German and French servers in Counter-Strike: Source when connected wired without any user on the internet, but when someone connects wirelessly the ping raises from 600 to 1500. I asked on Tom's Hardware what's the problem, they have said that it was my upload speed, so would I have atleast 100ms ping when I'm connected wired and some other person is connected wirelessly too? I have a Siemens Gigaset SX 763 WLAN dsl modem.

You should see an improvement.

Remember, that bandwidth is shared among all devices. So at 0.2mbps and 4 devices, each is getting a really crappy up connection. And the up matters, because each device has to communicate back to whatever server they are connected to, to say "Yes, I got that packet, send more".

What four devices? I only have my computer wired and sister's tablet wirelessly connected and she is only watching videos and I think it's because of the upload speed, will it have a big improvement when going from sharing 0.2Mbit/s upload to 1Mbit/s? I wan
t to have atleast 100ms ping when sharing, I get pretty frustrated when having 600-1500ms ping everyday...

Yes it is right as while gaming upload speed matters a lot as you have to send date to game servers , since previous speed ws 0.2 Mbit/s and now you get 1Mbit/s you will a SIGNIFICANT improvement.

Another face is that it also depends on the server you playing if its not properly hosted even with good upload rate it wont effect as the game server should be well configured.

I think Ping in ms is not dependent on speed , check at www.pingtest.net for your pings and packet loss and jitters.

While your upload speed is terribly slow, your download speed is also an issue when gaming if any other device is watching streamed video. Until you get faster service, which will help a lot, set the tablet to run a lower resolution video. Decrease one step at a time, from HD to SD, etc.

20-40 in games and 30-50 on pingtest i dont know its the same as in game but when sharing bandwith on two devices is horrible... 600-1500 ping when im wired and tablet is wirelessly connected.

A solution to that would be wise Router Management in some routers(at least mine) , you can prioritize the activity over other activity of connected in network like Gaming(ports is here what i mean) over torrents,etc you can configure it manually.

Another thing to look at is whether your router supports QoS. If it does prioritize the use to your applications, although your sister may complain that she is getting a lot more buffering.

I didn't see any QoS option on my 192.168.X.X page for my router.

already did port forwarding and that kind of stuff but it didt help, it still said that my nat isnt open even if it is open and i did everything that on forum said how to open nat especially for my router but maybe it will improve when i get 10mbps net and its cheaper than my current one, i dont know why...

Yes new increased bandwidth should however be improvement over your current status.

I just said "4 devices" as an example.
You will/should see an improvement.
