      Asking for gamer profile

      We are in day 3 of our dlm period on sky broadband and im wondering when its the right time to phone sky to ask about being put on a gamer profile. Noticed pings are around the 40-70ms range but would love to get them lower due to the gaming both my wife and i do.
      Im guessing its after the 10 days are up but just wanted to check on here first incase you can call them sooner.

      These are my stats after 3 days, cant see me getting much more out of it but im happy enough with around a 12meg connection speed.

      Unfortunately you will have to leave it until DLM has finished.

      You will probably need your profile changed to 18048/1216 delays 8/8 INP 1 symbol

      Yeah thought it would be that now just to get the missus to be a little more patient and wait for another 7 days

      It might not take that long, keep an eye on your WAN uptime each morning, when it stops resyncing in the early hours, that usually means DLM training is complete. Your present figures indicated you resynced around 2 am, so DLM is still running.

      The Sky page is usually incorrect when it comes to DLM.

      Re: Asking for gamer profile

      Oh right, so if i just stick to assuming its running for the next 10 days then anytime after that should be fine to ring about a gamer profile then.

      Re: Asking for gamer profile

      Best way to tell if it is running has already been suggested in #5 by Tom.

      When you get up in the morning

      open an internet browser
      enter 192.168.0.1

      username: admin
      password: sky

      both lower case

      Click on maintenance and then show statistics. It will then tell you there what your WAN uptime is.

      Take your WAN uptime and subtract it from the current time. If the time is between 1-6am then that would suggest that DLM is still running.

      Remember not to use the System uptime, LAN uptime or WLAN uptime as this will give you incorrect figures.

      DLM often leaves delays at 8ms anyway, so you may not even have to call.
