high ping

Recommended Posts

So I've logged into BC2 today, to find all my pinds on the server browser are 300+

 

There are no background downloads happening etc.

 

Things I have done in the past day.

 

Installed new PSU (this morning)

Installed AVG (since uninstalled)

Oc'ed CPU (since un-clocked).

 

Really got me shitted. I'm with internode, anyone else experiencing this?

 

Have since reset router/PC also.

 

Cheers

Try a ping/speed test and see if you have a high ping there too:

Tested that, and it was silly high.. like 500+.. The problem has seemed to have since settled down "occasionally peaks to 200+ then rallies back down to 120'ish" (problems generally auto fix themselves a split second after winging on the forums).

 

On a side note, I can smell burning electrical from my new PSU :S

You need a better network card seriously. You need a killer NIC:

No im not serious, try updating firmware on modem and rebooting. Makes sure all elements of AVG are gone, have you checked to see if your exchange has any outages? Could be on a congested exchange.

I can't imagine anybody with a half decent motherboard would ever NEED one of those...

I'd say your modem and ISP make a much bigger difference on your network performance in gaming.

Fuck knows... I just got kicked for being 400+ so the problem is lingering... really weird

120+ pings for a local game server is still stupidly high isnt it? or is BC2 known for high pings?

 

I for example, play TF2, on internode, game arena, or ..... some other whos name escapes me.... If im above 60ms something is worng. and thats with 3 people using my connection.

 

it was BETTER back in internode days *40+ was high)

 

Why are yours so high initially is what i'd be asking.

That's why I suggested the traceroute, so he can see where the problem lies for him.

 

A few times I had random crazy latency with my old ISP, Exetel.

I checked the traceroute to the server IP on CoD4, and there was a problem when the data was trying to pass through Optus.

 

At least this way he can see if it is his modem, or something else at fault.

server browser lists NSW and QLD pings at 31 - 61ping

 

 

not until i start playing that it evens out around 120+.

 

 

I distinctly remember ET node servers at around 70-90 in-game about 4-5 years ago :S

As per above, do a traceroute to see where the problem lies.

Perform traces to the game servers, local sites (in Australia) and international sites.

 

Once you have done that, list them here and we will see if we can figure out something from there.

 

You may also like to perform a path ping, though do the trace first.

 

To perform a traceroute on a Windows system:

Go to a command prompt.

Type in tracert serverIP_or_hostname

 

This will give you output something like:

H:\>tracert google.com

Tracing route to google.com [66.102.11.104]
over a maximum of 30 hops:

  1	 7 ms	<1 ms	<1 ms  10.x.x.x
  2	13 ms	 9 ms	16 ms  10.x.x.x
  3	13 ms	 9 ms	10 ms  10.x.x.x
  4	18 ms	13 ms	13 ms  gateway [x.x.x.x]
  5	15 ms	15 ms	11 ms  anotherhostname [x.x.x.x]
  6	26 ms	17 ms	15 ms  yetanotherhostname [x.x.x.x]
  7	17 ms	17 ms	23 ms  66.249.95.224
  8	20 ms	20 ms	15 ms  64.233.174.242
  9	18 ms	17 ms	12 ms  syd01s01-in-f104.1e100.net [66.102.11.104]

Trace complete.

This is going to show you each hop that is done between you and your destination. Look for big jumps in the times, or timeouts indicated by * instead of a time. Again, if you are not sure what it means, copy and paste the results into here and we will go from there.

 

Make sure to do the test more than once to see if the numbers are consistent.
