What is a lag switch and what can it do?
Simply put a lag switch is the ultimate weapon in online gaming. Let us explain how it works. When you’re playing an online game there is an inbound signal and an outbound signal. When playing normally both allow the data to flow freely but when someone uses a lag switch is cuts off the outbound connection without cutting the inbound one for a duration of 1 to 10 seconds. This allows the person to move around and attack while becoming temporarily impervious to attacks. Whatever you do during this time is cached up by the system and when the connection is restored your system syncs up. Your system will then register any damage you have taken as well as transmitting out what you did. Anything you did during this time will appear in a burst to your opponents. A lag switch can provide a great advantage in shooters like Call of Duty, Halo, Gears of War or any other first person shooter, especially in a 1v1. They are also used to glitch games in ways that would not be possible otherwise.
What do other players see/experience when the lag switch is activated?
From the other players perspective you will appear to:
- Teleport around.
- Move in unpredictable ways making them exceedingly difficult to combat.
- Become invincible for the duration that the lag switch is enabled.

How do I connect my new lag switch?
When you receive your lag switch from us installation is far simpler than with any other on the market. Follow these steps:
1. Disconnect the Ethernet cable currently linking your console to your router, switch or modem.
2. Replace it with the Premium Lag Switch. One side is labeled with what it should be connected to.
3. If for some reason this does not work reverse the lag switch.
4. Go online into a game. If you use this in any online area other than gaming you will get disconnected.
5. Hold button for 1-5 seconds. This will take some practice to get down and there’s some personal preference with how long to hold it.
6. If you get timed out you’re holding it too long. If you disconnect instantly try putting the lag switch between an Ethernet switch and your router and connect the Ethernet switch to your console.
Does the Premium Lag Switch work on wireless networks?
Unfortunately, no. At this time there are no wireless lag switches available from any supplier. The only option when it comes to using a lag switch is to use a wired connection.
