      It could probably be because I'm connected to a different Google Server though.

      Re: Pings & G.INP

      Hi guys.

      I do appreciate all the replies highlighting differences & why they can occur.
      Thanks.

      It was my intention to only post here again when the weirdness had sorted itself out, which i thought had happened last night but was just a little too eager.

      If i maintain 15ms to some addresses, it surely must be related to routing rather than levels of interleaving or any other fixed parameter such as line length ect.

      Why this would all of a sudden start happening in january though is beyond me.
      And why the switch around with each new ip address is another thing i've failed to shed any light on.
      Then there's the fact that twice now it has sorted itself out, albeit for short period.

      I understand i would undoubtedly learn a lot more if i did some traceroutes.
      The problem is, every time i get near to thinking i can't survive any longer with just a ps3 in this day & age, along comes something like this to reinforce my philosophy on such matters:

      BBC iPlayer - The Men Who Made Us Spend - Episode 1

      No eye raising moments in that show for me LOL.

      Re: Pings & G.INP

      Just for the record, i'm currently having another one of those periods where all 7 of my benchmark test* ip addresses are giving ping times of 15 or 16ms at the same time, like they should.

      This is without my own ip address changing.
      However just like on another occasion this happened, it is the day after some major sky network downtime, only this time elsewhere in the uk so it didn't affect me.
      So fingers crossed.

      *It's just the tbb bqm + 6 addresses i picked which i know i should get pings of around 15ms to because i have done in the past.

      Not wishing to tempt fate, but it looks like this issue has been rectified.

      Not only are all my benchmarks still at 15 or 16ms, but so are many other ip's i've randomly picked from reverse traceroutes.

      The downtime / maintenance that may well have been the reason behind this affected the south west on wednesday between 6 & 10pm, so the chances are things have been back to normal for 60hrs now.
      I didn't notice straight away because my bqm has been at 16ms since my last ip change several days ago.

      Please ignore the red sections.
      My ps3 is in the DMZ now & the bqm gets no response when it's turned off.

      This suggests to me that it is your PS3 responding to the pings, not your router, as is the case with myself.

      Could I suggest that you temporarily take the PS3 out of the DMZ setting for a day or two and see how that affects the ping values?

      Hi Scubbie.

      DMZ or not, the ping values are unaffected.

      Traditionally my ps3 has always been in the DMZ.
      Infact i only took it out in order to get a bqm on the go around late january, after all this weirdness started.
      I popped it back in about a month ago & the phenomenon which this thread is all about did continue in exactly the same manner....

      That is up until almost a week ago, when after the south west maintenance things went back to normal.
      I've had 1 'natural' ip address change & 1 reboot since then & the pings are still how they should be, so i am confident that the maintenance did fix whatever it was.

      I'd happily take it out of the DMZ again for testing purposes though, if there was anything more behind your suggestion to do so.

      OK, so not a lot of data today.
      My pings going the other way to 80.249.99.164 are 17ms.

      I took the ps3 out of the DMZ just to make sure things stayed as they should be.
      This required another reboot for the setting to take effect, so i've had 3 ip addresses now without any change in pings.

      My own pings going the other way to the bqm are 17ms & test pings to many other addresses are still 15 or 16ms, so everything is definitely back to normal now.
