So, I have some questions about port forwarding. Will it increase my kbps much? I did it for Xbox Live, and was wondering if anyone else has (or for another program) and if it helped with anything. I heard it's supposed to, but I'm not really sure. Everything I read on it just tells me what it actually does (Opening direct ports or w.e).
maybe a tiny bit but it really shouldn't much, routers are usually faster than the speed the information can be sent over the network.
Port forwarding is used to allow traffic access through a specific port in your computer that a router firewall would normally block.
