    Bandwidth / Port Forwarding

    DawgPoundMBA

      I am wondering what impact port forwarding and port control would have on my network performance.  When I play video games online or do video conferencing for work while the slingbox is active then I can get some lag which kills the experience.  This is very annoying for both video gaming and teleconferencing.  I know that having multiple data connections can hurt my ping.  Now I have two internet connections to help compensate for this issue, but I was wondering if I forced my slingbox to use ports that arent being used with my gaming or video conferencing, would that improve my ping / lag?  This way I could save some money and drop one of my internet connections.
