      Gaming pings increase

      Hi,

      Is it possible my line has been switched to have full max delays back on? As my pings have increased from 80 to 115 in the past month or so?

      Thanks

      Possible, but unlikely

      Re: Gaming pings increase

      Looking at your profile, I suspect that you might benefit from checking that you are still on the 'Mid' package.

      Your exchange has Sky's LLU. This would give you access to Sky BB Unlimited.

      According to this sites estimator, you should be able to achieve between 9Mb & 10Mb connection speeds for your attenuation.

      Saying this, you have a noise margin of 15dB. Could you plug your router into the Test Socket & repost your stats? There might be an issue with your connection.

      Also, it isn't unusual for Micro-Filters to fail. It might be worth diggings out a spare one and comparing that to see if your connection improves.

      Do try one thing at a time though so that you can be sure what is improving your connection.

      Blimey! "10 on upstream" is a good speed. I guess you meant download speed.

      Seriously though, the Noise Margin may well indicate the source of the problem. Thanks for updating your profile, it helps to identify potential factors.

      Look forward to the results.

      Seems DLM kicked in for some reason or another - probably saw something it didn't like error-wise. Connect to your test socket if you have one and repost stats. Speed won't change but noise margin might
