      Best Interleaving Settings For Pings

      After reading this very useful site ::. Kitz - Interleaving .:: i have a couple of questions.

      Does anyone know what the default Maximum Interleave Delay/Depth is on a Sky connection?

      What is the minimum we can request to get it set to? can we turn it off entirely if our line is stable?

      Is there any way of seeing what its set at on a Sagem router? (i think you can on the netgears)

      default is 32ms, can be lowered to 8ms on request...HOWEVER, if you're on DLM it usually lowers you to 16 or 8 anyway - a call to Sky can confirm this(once you get to CST)

      and you can't really see it on eitehr router - the Netgears has something listed as 'depth' but it's not displayed the same as Sky...

      Thanks for that IAmNotTheEnemy, i've noticed that my Easynet work connection (on the same street as my house) gets a ping of 11ms to bbc.co.uk

      Tracing route to bbc.co.uk [212.58.254.252]
      over a maximum of 30 hops:

      1 1 ms <1 ms <1 ms 172.31.25.253
      2 1 ms 1 ms 1 ms 82.108.98.201
      3 27 ms 23 ms 24 ms cr0.wmnew.uk.easynet.net [82.108.10.209]
      4 6 ms 6 ms 6 ms 82.111.105.17
      5 12 ms 12 ms 11 ms 212.58.238.190
      6 11 ms 11 ms 11 ms 212.58.238.189
      7 11 ms 11 ms 11 ms 212.58.238.129
      8 11 ms 11 ms 11 ms rdirslb0.thdo.bbc.co.uk [212.58.224.136]
      9 12 ms 12 ms 12 ms virtual3.rbsov.bbc.co.uk [212.58.254.252]

      From what i gather Sky uses Easynet hardware? I was wondering if i could get anywhere near the latency times of my work connection with Sky.

      in a word, no...Easynet is a business connection (we get 5ms to bbc.co.uk at work) and is a much better, leased line connection...

      you shuold see 20-30ms...
