      9. Luton
      10. 20Mb Sky Broadband Everyday Lite
      11. CS:S 80-150ms ping

      Really unhappy with my broadband; had to change routers to a non-sky one because it kept dropping the connection and ultimately burned out. Ever since I got it I have never been under 50ms ping, and really considering to change. Any ideas how to fix this?

      (*for #1 - didn't manage to get to that stage as they did not detect a sky router, due to them sending me broken ones all the time)

      Re: Gamer Quality Survey

      problem is that its not possible to do so; and even then I have serious lag. The extension cable itself is one of those "blue boxes" that utilizes the sockets for transferring the connection. Unfortunately I am a university student living with other people and the router is situated in the living room somewhat 8m away and 2 rooms + hallway away. So at the moment I cant do anything about it.

      Although thanks for the reply

      It will not help your ping but there is considerable noise margin available for a substantial speed increase. The owner should call Sky and ask them to reconfigure the line. It is way below its full potential. You have not put in the line sync, but from your speed it is probably 6-7Mb, it should be 14-16Mb. When that has been done, ask them to put the line on a gamer profile.

      If it is homeplugs you are connecting to the router with, thats fine.
