      Can lowering interleave improve Rx times?

      Hi all,
      I know that I have high ping times; probably due to the fact that I'm interleaved on 128 8. Am I right in thinking that high pings will result in high latencys?
      I've found this on Wilipeoadia:
      Although the theoretical peak bandwidth of a network connection is fixed according to the technology used, the actual bandwidth you will obtain varies over time and is affected by high latencies. Excessive latency creates bottlenecks that prevent data from filling the network pipe, thus decreasing effective bandwidth.

      I don't play online games but am wondering whether web pages would load faster with a lower depth of interleave? Presumably web pages rely on the transer of lots of small packets where latency might come into effect?
      Also might overall download speed go up a little if interleave was reduced?

      I have a nice stable line with few errrors and certainly don't want to spoil that but would a slight lowering of interleave depth improve my stats?

      Many thanks all,

      Graham
      PS. I sync. at 16380 and 764 (down/up). My attn. is 26.5 and SNR never below 7.4.
      I get about 30 CRC's a day, 10 LOS and 40 errored secs.

      Re: Can lowering interleave improve Rx times?

      The packets of data which a webserver sends out are streamed, so latency doesn't really have much of an effect on overall transfer speeds. If you lowered your ping time from 100ms to 50ms, your page would be downloaded only 50ms faster.

      I could go into more detail about the way TCP/IP streaming works, but it's a bit involved, so unless you're really interested…

      Thanks James67,
      So, by inference, it'd do little to alter download speeds generally, too?
      Many thanks,

      Generally speaking, that would be the case. But if you've got a line that's generating lots of errors which result in packet loss, then the latency does have an impact, as the TCP streaming would take a bit longer to sort itself out after each lost packet.
