      PING Seems to have doubled yet connection remains the same

      Wondered if any one can help:-

      Ive been on sky mid broadband package for about a year

      Always had a good steady connection of about 4.7mb download and 416 upload (See stats below)


      System Up Time 03:44:02
      Port Status TxPkts RxPkts Collisions Tx B/s Rx B/s Up Time
      WAN PPPoA 148009 174752 0 1335 14426 03:43:05
      LAN 10M/100M 71772 64551 0 3848 1045 03:44:00
      WLAN 11M/54M 113206 90524 0 10991 543 03:43:50


      ADSL Link Downstream Upstream
      Connection Speed 4768 kbps 416 kbps
      Line Attenuation 15.5 db 31.5 db
      Noise Margin 5.9 db 14.0 db

      Whenever Ive used speedtest.net ive always got similar results of 4.7mb and always had a fairly low ping between 32 and 55

      However nowadays I seem to be getting a ping of 102 but have changed nothing??

      I mainly use the net for PS3 and 360 gaming and am worried about lag issues

      Also wondered if anybody could offer an educated opinion as to wether it would be worth upgrading to max package for upload speeds when hosting games?

      Thanks

      Upload speeds are crucial when it comes to hosting games, as for ping, try pinging bbc.co.uk from your pc and let us know what that comes back as. Speedtest may just be overloaded.
