My Poor Ping

By tech4ward

  1. Hi,could anyone please tell me why all of a sudden ,my ping is plus 30 higher on all my favorite servers,whereas a couple weeks ago they were just fine?
    UtGoty99 is the game,and win 2k is the o.s.
    Could it be my netspeed,which i think is already set to 10000? or is it that i joined a new server or new game mode(monsterhunt)
    Thanks for any ideas! :confused:

    the usual suspects would be any recent changes to your system like hardware driver updates and the like, or your ISP has more customers. I have never experienced ping under thirty on any game, so I would consider myself lucky if my ISP had ever alotted me enough bandwidth to play that smooth. If you can think of any more information it would help these folks diagnose the problem.

    What a bummer(thanks)

    Thanks for your response.My ping has jumped +30
    Some places ,my ping would be 50,now its 80,and so on.The best ping i had was 60,70,and now they are all 30 pings higher,so i guess i should have clarified that,instead of making people jealous-lol.
    Youi think changing my netspeed would help?

    try using tracert to see the individual segment times.
    in the sample below, my access to the ISP is very nice, while
    segments 12 and above are really slow.
    ergo, I can't change the results

    $ tracert google.com
    Tracing route to google.com [64.233.167.99]
    over a maximum of 30 hops:
