ADSL - Ping problem

Postby BackByte » 03 Nov 2010, 13:30

Hi guys / gals,

Not sure if this has been asked before, but here goes.
What line / ISP are you guys on?

I'm on a 384 (yes, I know it's not great, but should be fine)
And I'm with CyberSmart (NightRider, unshaped).

Sometimes my ping is fine, below 80, but other times it's just shocking. Last night was sitting at 80, but would spike to > 600 the whole time?

Would changing ISP's really make a difference?

Regards.

Someone call the ping guru ?
j/k

Head over to afrihost, they are giving 1GB unshaped accounts away for free; then give it a try.

If you still experience pings then you have a big problem. Then its the exchange or back-haul somewhere along the path.
Good luck with getting that sorted out; I've been trying for nearly two years (well I gave up trying).

When it happens again, to a tracert to quake.isgaming.co.za and post it here.

Cheers

It does come down to your ISP routing alot of the time, connected to the old gamezone quake servers last night had a steady ping of 440. Ran the tracert and saw telkom was routing traffic to those local servers via UK first. /facepalm

Hopped over to my Afrihost account and my ping was sitting at 30 :lol:
