What kind of latency do you play with?

my ping is around 400-600 (I'm an Asian)

There's a great program called Faster Ping, which reduced my latency from 200-300 to 40-60. I have recommended it to my buddies and they all have seen improvement in their latencys. I hope someone will find this program useful!
All the program does is add a registry setting which changes a configuration parameter for the TCP stack on your computer.
I manually added this setting and my ping went from 120 ms on average to 40ish ms, quite an improvement. The reasoning behind why the change does this makes a lot of sense when it comes to how network games work (streaming small packets)

But does it slow any other programs that use the internet instead?

Nope, play on OSX so there aren't any registry-type "fixes".
My wow lagometer usually shows between 50 and 120, but when i play i can see from quartz that it's not the case. I'm usually at ~200 outside arenas or slightly above and ~400 in arenas.
Has anyone else noticed that arena servers always are more laggy than world servers? I've been moaning at blizz cuz of that for ages. Having 4-500ms in arenas really makes a difference, impossible to pummel that MD and even 1,5 sec casts can be a pain sometimes, getting feared THROUGH pillars etc... :S
About the "latency fix", I thought that was rather pointless after blizz fixed nat pagle's algorithm or w/e it was? If not, can anyone point me in the direction of a updated and detailed guide?

It speeds up the download speed for small files and slows down the download speed of large files. It has to do with the way packets are handled- the basic windows setting is setup to handle large downloads better but you change it to handle small down/uploads (IE sending the fact that you just kicked).
