Terrible latency

Atm its impossible to play any online games and i can't even connect to teamspeak servers. Ther connection is continously timing out.

Terrible latency

@ stuward

There is a thread not a million miles from here discussing the problems with the teamspeak server which can be found here

Your best bet is to have a look in that thread before starting a new one.

Regards,

Roger.

Right, before you want to bawl me out - that is what you said right there I appreciate you said online games, but you specifically mentioned teamspeak, so my apologies for not having got it right this time.

Have you done any speedtests? for example at http://www.speedtest.bbmax.co.uk/ or http://test.speedtester.bt.com:50301/

The latter should give you a IP profile and actual line speed.

Are you also using a router or USB modem? what are your line stats?
Is interleaving switched on by any chance? sometimes this causes latency problems particularly for games - if it is on, then you can request to have it turned off again.

I hope this has helped.

Terrible latency

Line stats

ADSL Link Downstream Upstream
Connection Speed 1632 kbps 416 kbps
Line Attenuation 53 db 15.5 db
Noise Margin 9 db 7 db

Netgear 834G router

The speed test gave me

782 down
205 up

I haven't asked for interleaving to be switched on, but i'm not sure what PN / BT have done on that one

And to add to the problems.

I left my PC on all night downloading a well seeded torrent, and it managed to d/l a whole 45mb averaging 5k.
So much for offpeak downloading
