Re: pings are everywhere...

Hi, can you do a tracert please (traceroute if you're not on Windows(R))?
My pings have been shot today, my tracert shows I'm connected to thn-ag1 gateway:
C:\Users\Alastair>tracert bbc.co.uk
Tracing route to bbc.co.uk [212.58.224.138]
over a maximum of 30 hops:
  1    3 ms    2 ms    2 ms  192.168.1.254
  2    4 ms    35 ms  311 ms  lo0.plusnet.thn-ag1.plus.net [195.166.128.101]
  3    30 ms    49 ms    18 ms  vl703.thn-gw2.plus.net [84.92.4.242]
  4    35 ms    63 ms    20 ms  rt0.thdo.bbc.co.uk [212.58.239.25]
  5    33 ms  154 ms    47 ms  212.58.238.133
  6  149 ms    19 ms    58 ms  virtual-vip.thdo.bbc.co.uk [212.58.224.138]
Trace complete.
My pings are graphed here: http://www.thinkbroadband.com/ping/share/1c4dc8f62914b8894d0f1b560e14e493-04-02-2010.html
On a good day I get mostly around 15!
