Ping problems?

Try rebooting your modem/router to get on another gateway than ag3 and see if the ping improves.

@willhome

would be a good idea to check your pings etc at different times through the day and then at peak times which i belive on plusnet is 16:00 to 00.00 and compare them, i myself find that through the day my pings are fine but at peak time they can go right up,

Aslo my d/l through the day are fine but peak times they slow down to 25k- 50k when otherewise i can d/l at 230+kb,

If you find that in the day your pings are fine ,but at peak times they are high then its probarley down to contention and plusnets traffic shaping,
