      Pings high whilst gaming on PC

      Hi there,

      I am connected to router via homeplugs and when gaming (on counter-strike) my pings on UK servers are around 55-80

      I have had Sky Broadband unlimited since the start of march and I am on 8mb unlimited.

      Is there anything I can do to increase my ping?

      Also which number do I ring to change to "gamer profile" and will I see much difference in my ping?

      Cheers,
      Dan

      The lower the ping the better. If you ring the normal sky number and select broadband faults. I can't remember the option number, but explain to them that you would like to have gamer profile. You maybe unlucky and get people telling you your speed will decrease but in most cases, it isn't true. I had to ring 3 times to get it enabled but it is worth it. My gaming improved massively when I got it.

      Could you post your router's connection stats please?

      How to get your router statistics - Sky User - The unofficial support forum for everything Sky!

      Also could you rub a 'tracert' to www . bbc . co . uk

      To do this, you will need to drop to command prompt (Run --> cmd) on a PC and type "tracert www.bbc.co.uk". If you can the post the results of this too,
