My experience with cheap home routers is that they often lag badly if you connect to a forwarded (NAT) port on their public interface. Example: my router's public IP is 68.226.(something), my laptop's private IP is 192.168.1.(something), and the loopback is of course 127.0.0.1. If I'm running a game server and connect to the loopback or to the 192... address, it works fine. But if I connect to my public IP, the router behaves very badly.
