      PC Gaming with new Sky DLink router. Ping issues.

      I have just signed up to the new Sky Unlimited package deal and now using the new DLink router which Sky has sent me. I play a lot of First Person Shooters and with other gamers who might read this that Ping must be kept to a absolute minimum. My old provider (O2 Broadband) had a better connection than sky. so there must be a way to improve it.

      I read a post which Newreader had left about the Max Delay levels i got sky to set them to 8 now its improved a little but not a great deal. With my old provider i would get around 40ms of ping with 4MB Download and 1.1MB Upload. With sky i get 100+ ping with 3.5 Download and 0.6 Upload.

      He are some of the stats off my router.

      You can both call Sky and ask to be placed on a Gamer profile.

      Not everyone in the call centre can do this, so you may have a few calls to make before you get someone who knows what they are doing.

      The Gamer Profile will reduce your pings a little, but can increase or decrease you line's connection speed. It can also leave it a little unstable in some cases.

      Sky Fibre Unlimited Pro: Connected at 80,000 kbps / 20,000 kbps
      Previous ADSL2+ Speed 19999 kbps 1153 kbps, Line Attenuation 17.5 db 6.9 db, Noise Margin 7.5 dB 8.7 dB
      Speedtest: 17.15MB/s 0.97Mb/s Ping 31 ms
