fastest settings for gaming allowable on adsl?

hi
whats currently the fastest settings you can have for adsl to lower gaming pings without paying any extra?
I was with plusnet before but maybe things have changed regarding settings since then
just to recap
I,m looking for the best setts for gaming, with low pings, my download speed is fine hovering around 15-17mb so speed is not an issue however pings are for gamin
any advice as what setts to request would be grateful
thanks

Moderators are customers just like yourself
As a non gamer the obvious answer is to have the line on fast path with no interleaving
Whether your line is stable enough for that or even whether that is already the situation we would have no idea
How about checking whether your line is interleaved or not and posting some tracerts to show what the interleave depth is like and posting your router stats showing noise margins and errors

fast path is interleaving off and you can't tweak things other than using a wired connection

The best things for gaming are interleaving off, and using a wired connection. Most games use lag compensation to try and make it fairer between people using different connections, so slight variations in ping aren't going to cause a disadvantage.
