The lag the lag the lag.

Does anyone have an answer to it? Particularly in the last few weeks... sudden and violent packet loss that lasts anything from a few minutes to a few hours.

The only change would be the new uncapped accounts, i think isp's are really throttling non standard ports now :/

my accounts (afrihost in particular) started spazzing out about a week before mwebs uncapped hit the market. so i dont know if its related. but there has definitely been a nation-wide random lag fuckup in the last 3 weeks or so. its awful to think this might be the new standard. maybe this is their way of getting us to pay more for some kind of business package or some shit :(

Most likely, the whole network is taking strain coz of the new uncapped accounts. It should return to normal soon :)

seta cl_maxpackets 33
seta fade 25000

And that's over wireless to a Telkom 384 line.
Peekay dude, have you had Telkom techies to check your line for you? I had issues with a slow, unstable line a while back and after a visit from Telkom (fuck knows what they did) I had no more problems.
