      Fine speeds lots of lag in game

      Hey again guys

      After getting onto sky a few weeks ago abotu my terrible speeds which were fixed

      I have started to notice that in the evenings i get really bad intermittent lag in game

      In counterstrike source its 120 ping constant with 20 loss and lots of choke

      Now if you know anything baout css then youll know how bad that is

      Also WoW gives patches were youll jsut lag out and then send you back in after 30ses to a couple of minutes were you get all of the stuff you missed in one go

      yet i can sit in ventrilo and talk with my friends fine with no lag at all it just gives high ping every know and again

      The last phonce call i had from cst said that there was a problem woth my speed issues as other people have had the same problem could they have changed something so that ping is affected

      What are your ideas

      i im with sky more than one year already , and it's just been an pain in the a** , sky is not for gaming ofcourse , best thing for you to do is call them again and ask to reduce your maximum delays to 8 and u will get ping around 25-35, by the way a week ago i phoned them about max delays and i got a good lad from sky , he setted my max delays lower to 8 and speed to 8mbps while i was capped at 5mbps, i was like wow, i had ping 5-15 , and i was sooooo amazed , but unfortunately after 20 mins my inet restarted and dropped back to ping 45 and speed 4mbps, i called them and they said they got an automatic system that changes everything without them knowing it... anyway sky is not for gaming mate , get BE.
      I speak Russian / English / Lithuanian

      Re: Fine speeds lots of lag in game

      sky is not for gaming ofcourse
      This is what I don't understand. Being an avid gamer, I have no issues with Sky for gaming. I regularly get pings below 40 to a lot of servers that I play on, and have no issues with lag whatsoever. Granted I have had my max_delays sorted, but game playing is no problems for me whatsoever.

      I wonder if it is to do with your other issues Alex?

      All of the guys we play with, all have Sky BB as their ISP and gaming cannot be faulted. However we all have fairly stable lines.

      Re: Fine speeds lots of lag in game

      This is from a racing forum that i posted at:::


      hi guys I Need some help. Im constantly suffering from low fps and or lag online when playing race-07 but not on all the servers offline the game works perfectly

      Now my pc knowledge would lead me to believe this is an ISP problem . ok well the thing is that I have done tests for connection speed and packet loss and they came up with no problemsl. ..im with sky btw

      I do believe its my isp whose at fault but i need somthing to complain about otherwise they are going to say its drivers or my settings virus etc etc.... Upload/and download speeds are considerable 5 mb down/.8 mb up

      This was the biggest clue yet other day I went into the 100mbit server and it was laggy then because we had a race sceduled the admin closed the server I rejoined 15 mins later and voila! there was no lag/fps issue game ran perfectly this is what i cant understand I guess admin must off switched to a different server??..

      im confused Huh

      plz if anyone can help..

      changing topic just slightly I would suggest u have a technical section for any problems that we may encounter wasnt sure where to post this so i put it in here Smile

      thx

      Just an idea, but it may be someone else on the server that is slowing things down for everyone else. I know on our BF server there is a console setting which makes the server boot anyone with a higher ping than the value you set in the console.

      Your speed is very low for your attenuation, less that half of what you should get. Please start a new thread of your own in the Help section, posting these stats and plug into your Test socket and also post the stats from there. Use only the cables supplied by Sky.

      Get your speed sorted and it will go a way towards your other problems.
