      Re: Color?

      in the future, the blue and green ports will be optimised for specific services i.e. Video on demand, but they are still just ethernet ports, and can be used in the same way as the yellow sockets.

      Re: Color?

      You can ask Sky to reduce your Max_Delays, this would help with the latency normally.

      Use the Kana form.

      Hello!

      Here is:

      Pinging jolt.co.uk [82.133.85.65] with 32 bytes of data:
      Reply from 82.133.85.65: bytes=32 time=28ms TTL=57
      Reply from 82.133.85.65: bytes=32 time=27ms TTL=57
      Reply from 82.133.85.65: bytes=32 time=28ms TTL=57
      Reply from 82.133.85.65: bytes=32 time=28ms TTL=57

      Ping statistics for 82.133.85.65:
      Packets: Sent = 4, Received = 4, Lost = 0 (0% loss),
      Approximate round trip times in milli-seconds:
      Minimum = 27ms, Maximum = 28ms, Average = 27ms

      The ping is always good in blue and green port just the online game give bad results for me. I changed port with my father (He just play once or twice a week) and I connected in the yellow now. It is work fine now.

      interesting, I don't have one of those routers to test,
      but your pings are fine so at least you know its not the
      adsl connection

      Guess you could always get a 5 port switch and connect
      it to a yellow port to get around the issue
