High Ping & Static IP Trouble

Hello,
I seem to be getting high pings of 30+ lowest I've had is 29 it seems a bit high to me, especially being on the Unlimited Fibre package. Also I seem to be having trouble with assigning the Static IP to my PC, could anyone please help me? Smiley
Thanks!

Re: High Ping & Static IP Trouble

It's difficult to determine if a ping of 30 is high, without knowing who you're pinging.  In the grand scheme of things on the Internet,  30 is quite low.
With the static IP (assuming it's the one from Plusnet),  that is normally assigned to your router.  To assign it to your PC would require playing with bridged mode, and all the issues that introduces.

Thanks for the reply, I sorted the Static IP out now Smiley The ping on anything I do is high, just a few months back it was 11 and below, even on Broadband I was getting 15.

Hi there,
Is it affecting your connection? If so, please post some ping results to servers that you use/play on along with maybe a traceroute to the same server - that should show us where the slow hops are.
