      Ping on Sagem router and supposed Gamer Profile.

      Hi, first and foremost it's my first time posting on these forums and I'm not entirely sure which stats I should be posting apart from router stats which I guess would be the following:

      ADSL Link Downstream Upstream
      Connection Speed 10238 kbps 945 kbps
      Line Attenuation 31.5 db 17.1 db
      Noise Margin 5.7 db 14.9 db

      I rang sky just a few moments ago after being with them for several months, they informed me that my line was on the gaming profile however my speedtests ran through various sights differ between 45MS and 75 MS, is this normal for a gaming profile? Reguarding my profile here I am not at all sure what Router I have as all I can see on it is Sagem and no F@st tag or 2504.

      I have also posted a tracert for bbc.co.uk as I see that posted a lot in these forums.

      Tracing route to bbc.co.uk [212.58.241.131]
      over a maximum of 30 hops:

      1 1 ms 1 ms 1 ms myrouter.home [192.168.0.1]
      2 37 ms 37 ms 37 ms 5adb0b3e.bb.sky.com [90.219.11.62]
      3 37 ms 37 ms 36 ms 10.245.160.161
      4 47 ms 47 ms 47 ms 89.200.131.193
      5 44 ms 43 ms 43 ms 212.58.238.189
      6 * * * Request timed out.
      7 42 ms 43 ms 44 ms ae1.er01.rbsov.bbc.co.uk [132.185.254.46]
      8 43 ms 43 ms 43 ms 132.185.255.134
      9 44 ms 44 ms 44 ms 212.58.241.131

      Trace complete.

      Secondly my sister moved into a flat in Salford just a few years ago while I am in Manchester, while the distance to the exchange is very similar they get a stable ping sitting around 30ms and Modern Warfare 2 is so much easier to play, even pulling host at times, however at my adress I am lucky to even get a consistant 4 bar connection which has lead me to post here requesting help.

      If anything else is requested please let me know. Thanks for any help.

      Hi Awyth.

      i'm really not qualified to advise, but from what little i've learnt so far, it's not a good idea to judge your line by online test sites as they aren't very consistent. always do a traceroute or use the ping tool in the diagnostic section of the router. it may be worth doing these pings at different times of the day & seeing if the results correlate with the noise margin figures, then posting the stats here.

      there'd be some very clever folks frequent these 'ere parts...

      edit: something i was advised once is that people often get unnecessarily obsessed with a low ping & that a stable ping is far more important for gaming, the 4 packet router tool is perfect for testing this.
