      Reducing Pings

      Hi folks,

      I just wanted to share my router stats with you for an expert opinion:

      Port Status TxPkts RxPkts Collisions Tx B/s Rx B/s Up Time
      WAN MER 414737 571544 0 510 4926 28:38:17
      LAN 0 0 0 0 0 00:00:00
      WLAN 590173 449383 0 6626 752 22:02:01
      ADSL Link Downstream Upstream
      Connection Speed 4094 kbps 412 kbps
      Line Attenuation 48.5db 29.1db
      Noise Margin 6.6db 19.1db

      I'm about 1 mile from the exchange (2miles in cable length) My router is connected to the master socket. I would love to get a lower ping, but with an already slow connection I'm not sure asking for a gamer profile would be a great idea. I could replace my faceplates, if the stats suggest that might be useful.

      Any thoughts? Or is this probably as good as it gets while on copper?

      Thanks,

      Take a look at this web page first:

      ::. Kitz - Improve your adsl connection speed .::

      Give Sky a friendly call and ask to be placed on Gamer's profile.

      If the person doesn't know what you mean, hang up and call again.

      Quick followup - called through to tier 2, and got the gamer profile setup. Ping was halved instantly to an average of around 38, and my d/l speeds were affected only marginally. Will keep an eye on thing over the next few days, but so far this looks promising!

      The I-Plates aren't really necessary unless you have confirmed that you are getting any REIN interference.

      A Filtered Faceplate is a much better idea though. The electronics in a filtered faceplate are generally more superior those found in the microfilter supplied by Sky and most other ISPs.

      Since the filtration is done at the master socket, if you have any other sockets in use, they no longer require any filters as they would be wired to the filtered connectors on the back of the filtered faceplate in the same way as an extension is wired to the back of the faceplate on an NTE5 socket.
