My Pings are all to pot!

Dont know whats going on but recently my online gaming has ground to a halt. I dont do much downloading but i like my online gaming. My pings are terrible...my friends in Uk are usually about 30ms to me know they average 250+.
My set up has not changed in last 12months apart from being plagued by disconnects which has died down recently. Now the problem is that my ping has shot right up. Making gaming torture and me being the victim of kicks.Dont know if you can work anything out from my connection diagnostics cos its all french to me.DSL End User Diagnostic Program

Can you post a tracert or better still a WinMTR trace to one of your game servers that you are seeing high pings to?

See Servers: Ping & Traceroute for info on how to run them if you are not sure.

tracer route

This is what i got on gamespy arcade.
I usually host games but can no longer do this cos of my poor ping. In fact its making game play impossible the main reason for my internet connection. Cry

Average pings of 30ms within the plusnet network are good. They start to deteriorate once you leave plusnet (the fist hop to level 3 is still good) and go to the US. That is outside PlusNets control.

Do you have any UK based game servers you also have a problem with that you can post the ping times for?
