Know what IP you are connecting to?  Get us some traceroutes.  Can you wireshark it?  It's busy tonight, but gaming should be fine.

Re: :( bad gaming

If the server IP isn't Visible via the game
startbar/run
type cmd
in the dos window type netstat -n -b
In that look for established connections for the games exe, that will be the server IP, or if in a MMO that uses multi IP addresses, the server that is hosting the zone you are currently in

You aren't missing anything mate, I am rubberbanding all over the place, no red triangles for me tonight but something isn't right. BF3 is the only game I play at the moment on PC so I can't say whether it is PN or BF3.

Re: :( bad gaming

Really want to get this all working ok for you guys.  Chris was gaming last night (not BF3) and saw no issues.  We've not heard any complaints from other BF3 gamers though (ukste? how was it?!) so I'm a little at a loss.
I presume it's normally fine, but just gets bad on Monday or Sunday nights?  (or when we had the apple traffic?)  it seems like you only have issues when we are busy.

Re: :( bad gaming

Drop me a friend request on Origin, my username is in the BF3 thread in the gaming section. I'll hop on tonight with you and see if I can replicate the same issues.

Re: :( bad gaming

Cool.  we'll arrange to get it from you.  Can you do a reboot of your router and let me know if it improves?  Tell us what gateway you are on now and afterwards.
