      Lag online Game

      So I've been playing an online game and my normal ping from way back was around 70. (I've just went back to the game after a years break)
      Currently my ping is around the 110 mark therefore causing lag and killing all joy from the game.
      If anyone can help me to resolve this problem and lower my ping (speed up my internet): I'd be very grateful.

      Re: Lag online Game

      What is the game your playing?
      Are you using wireless or Ethernet cable for your connection?
      Can you post up your router stats?
      Have you asked sky to put you on gamers profile?

      I've said it before and I'll say it again.
      Wireless and gaming isnt ideal.

      Re: Lag online Game

      i play xbox live and since moving to sky my pings to bbc.co.uk went from 18ms to currently


      C:\Users\Phil>ping bbc.co.uk

      Pinging bbc.co.uk [212.58.224.138] with 32 bytes of data
      Reply from 212.58.224.138: bytes=32 time=329ms TTL=121
      Reply from 212.58.224.138: bytes=32 time=294ms TTL=121
      Reply from 212.58.224.138: bytes=32 time=306ms TTL=121
      Reply from 212.58.224.138: bytes=32 time=308ms TTL=121

      Ping statistics for 212.58.224.138:
      Packets: Sent = 4, Received = 4, Lost = 0 (0% loss),
      Approximate round trip times in milli-seconds:
      Minimum = 294ms, Maximum = 329ms, Average = 309ms

      this varies from the hundreds to three hundreds. i never have a normal ping

      web browsing is slow and gaming is a problem. downloading is fine however.

      i am connect via a cable and sky say they have put me on the 8ms profile (or something similar)

      my stats are as follows

      WLAN 808505 450806 0 6533 502 32:21:51
      ADSL Link Downstream Upstream
      Connection Speed 10235 kbps 796 kbps
      Line Attenuation 33.0db 19.7db
      Noise Margin 5.6db 7.6db

      why are my pings so bad? what can i do to solve this, i would happily take a hit on my speed to bring my pings back to normal

      however i think it is probably something to do with contention or the amount of people on etc?

      Re: Lag online Game

      1. Are you wireless?
      2. Where in the country are you? If in North Wales/North West then there are issues affecting peak time speeds but not 24/7 speeds
      3. How are you setup in the phone socket?
