Annoying random high pings Area 22 Leeds West Yorks

Hi Guys,

it seems that whenever I want to play any online games like Assetto Corsa (AC) and CS:GO the pings go through the roof, was playing AC last night @ around 20:00 (but this seems to be every night I play games) in the end I had to quit from the server because I was an hazzard to all other racers because I was bouncing about that much and I noticed that my pings were > 700 which is not acceptable for this type of game.

I have today done a tracert to bbc.co.uk and all seems ok see below:

C:\windows\system32>tracert bbc.co.uk

Tracing route to bbc.co.uk [212.58.244.22]
over a maximum of 30 hops:

1 <1 ms <1 ms <1 ms RT-AC87U-66A0 [192.168.0.1]

13 12 ms 13 ms 13 ms 212.58.244.22

Trace complete.

 

Also please see the Downstream power levels which also seem ok to me apart from the pre/post RS errors:

 VM_downstream.PNG

upstream power levels don't see any timeouts:

VM_Upstream.PNG

 Please also see a snapshot of the event logs (could see some T3s for yesterday)

T3_Timeouts.PNG

 

I have also setup the the Broadband Quality Monitor via think broadband

 

Please let me know if there is anything that can be done because I am unable to race in the evenings with my team and I'm getting a little annoyed with this lol.

 

Cheers

Re: Annoying random high pings Area 22 Leeds West Yorks

Power levels are okay. The T4's are a bit worrying though. And that 2nd traceroute is mad, looks like one from a mobile network. But as you are wired and theres a VM infrastructure hop after your router, there is no chance of that...odd.

Set up a BQM

 HERE

 Run it for say 24 hrs, and post the result.

 

Dont forget youll need to make sure your super hub is configured to reply to ICMP echo requests...

Well that don't look right its like your not running a VPN then you are and bounce all over the place do you have a 3G/4G dongle pugged in your router? or even homeplugs?

Re: Annoying random high pings Area 22 Leeds West Yorks

Hi Guys,

 

thank you for the replies, I am running in modem mode with my Asus router attached which is the RT-AC87U device listed in the tracert, I do not see a respond to ping on the WAN interface (possibly because I am in modem mode) however I can confirm that I have that option set to true on my Asus router.

Please see below BQM

 Please also note that I do have homeplugs but this PC is hard wired direct to my Asus router.

 Kind Regards
