Ventrilo - High Pings :(

Hi

Have just been forced to rebuild PC and I notice I am still having problems with my ventrilo pings averaging 500+ (initially put it doewn to my XP install being old and having lots of garbage on it)... it didnt used to be this way, (usually, or initially around 20-35) Since I rent the server from TAA-Gaming, who are based in the UK... wondering what can be done, or is this a support ticket job?

Cheers

Andrew

Ventrilo - High Pings :(

Looking at the above posts, when I ping my server I get the same, results but the "ping meter" in ventrilo registers massively high when I connect to it, where previously it registered 21-38, it was registering 500+

Now it would appear to be behaving again - registering 22, but I am the only one connected to the server and I'm not trying to run any games.... odd.

hmm my antivirus has just flagged a virus/spyware on my old windows partition... wonder if that was it...


Problem is I dont know whether its a ventrilo/server/PC or ISP issue lol... or even if it is an issue any more.

ok lol 4 of us on vent now..... ping meter is at 353 in ventrilo software but when I actually ping it from windows I get same results as billbow


OMGWTFBBQ etc Cry

and the thing is this is just the tip of the iceberg what has been a really naff week for me PC-wise Sad (hard drive failure)

on the upside I have 8Meg broadband now thanks to the opt in :p


suggestions ?

I run Zonealarm as a firewall, wonder if thats it....

Software fire walls can be problematic - if your using a router you can safely turn if off.
An alternative is to turn on the Metronet firewall.

Me I've got all three - belt'n'braces and all that :lol:
Mind you Zonealarm is just stopping programs from phoning home.

Looks like I am going to have to submit a support ticket. Have tried all sorts (with and without firewalls, different versions of the ventrilo client etc) Have also been in touch with my ventrilo provider and had them carry out a series of tests - everything appears fine form their end, but I still lag something chronic, sometimes to the point of being unable to speak (ping meter in ventrilo software is now showing me 1475 :shock: )

only reason I am bothering is because it definately did not used to be like this (as I said 22-38 ping max)

I guess I can just reference this thread ?

Yep it looks like it's time to raise a ticket.

Better include the port address used by the server - it my be one that Plusnet have shaping on.

Good luck
