Counter Strike: Loss and Choke help appreciated

Lo all Cheesy

Just a brief history:

Migrated from BT to +net a few weeks ago.

Currently on "Business premier 2mb" for the lower contention, work during office hours, but evening is for hardcore gaming, in several leagues, so am quite serious about its setup.

On my old BT package No loss and No choke, now after BT fumbled by line regrade (swapped my tel number with someone else :S), ive got constant loss and choke, generally laggy Sad

Now, +net inform me i am on the correct exchange (office 20:1) but im concerned that good ole BT have buggered summit, considering all my previous speed tests are now dropping and getting slower :S

Heres a screenie (Links are full screenshots sorry)

Link

NB. 15-09-05 is my previous package speed test results, the best out of them all :S

Heres a screenie of my net_graph in game, showing the loss and choke:

Link

7 loss + choke = sux Sad

So heres some Tracert results:

Link: Gaming Server results

Link: BBC result

Latency seems to be perfect, so im really confused to be honest, by the way heres a screenie of my line loss:

Link: Router info

i've also played with mtu\ rwin but didnt find much improvement Sad any reccomendations would be appreciated.

Any help or pointers on fixing this loss and choke would be appreciated Cheesy

Thanks for your time in advance.

Oh no, I was highlighting my technical ineptness! Fascinating read but absolutely no idea to help you!

I THINK there is a techy forum here, you may do well to post a link to this in there.

Mainly didn't want you to think you were being ignored!

God knows, I'm about 1 week old in here. I tend to bumble along in my own fashion and hope I don't get shouted at.

Have you tried changing your ingame rates?

in console:

rate 25000
cl_cmdrate 101
cl_updaterate 101

This will more than likely get rid of ya loss and choke, you will see your ping raise slightly but then you will also see that your bullets will register better (more accurate shots) so this compensates.

Thanks for the reply Gunnery Cheesy

I always use 20k 101 101, but even after lowering my updaterate, i still get choke.

Random disconnections at peak times seem to have stopped now Cheesy

A mate did reccomend getting a linksys router as opposed to my netgear, but im not convinced to be honest.

So, ill continue putting up with this connection issue Sad

For 2mb you should be on something along the line of:

rate 20000
cl_cmdrate 100
cl_updaterate100

Also, loss and choke are generally created on a wireless connection. If your wireless then try repositioning your equipment to give a stronger signal.

I am not on wireless,

Weird though, in CS:S there is no loss, choke where as CS there is!
