Perth MS!

Anyone from the Perth area getting crappy ms? I used to easily get around about 230ms in game without any third party programs. Just recently the past few days my ms has been hovering around the 330-400 mark.

I'm with Telstra ADSL2+

hi. if you are using a telstra modem . ditch it .even telstra admits they are a hopeless modem for gaming in general .net gear has the solution for WOW players . with all the upgrades in the city and reconstrucion on roads an cables we might have some spikes but im sitting way south of the city and getting 230 ms with ADSL 2 using a net gear modem an 5 pc's on at once .all on WOW at the same time . Good luck :)

You can try changing modem and if that doesn't give you any relief, post in the tech support forum, they'll give you an ip to trace route to and you can see where the delay is coming into the routing.

Calling telstra will sadly get nothing done.

If i was to get a new modem, would it just be as simple as plug in and play?

Thanks for the reply guys, my ms has gotten better now. But i am always open for ways the improve my internet and it's stability.

bump bump... I actually think Sacredlife might be right. I'm hoping to get a "blue" reply on this. As you can see from my post above, I used to get about 220ms constantly back in March, now for the past 5-6 weeks, I struggle to get anywhere under 310-320ms. My ISP and router havent changed, everything's remained the same, any reason for the spike in ms???

Check your routes. ADSL routes differently from Cable and the routing on the Telstra network may have changed. Getting anything done or any answers is sheer poo atm as Telstra has pretty much the whole country under a MSD (Mass service disruption).

I dont think that's really the answer, I'm not with Telstra.

I haven't noticed a difference in latency lately.

Make sure that nothing else is using your connection (anyone else in the house), ensure all torrents/downloads are turned off. Try a cable to your modem instead of wifi (if you use wifi). Disable your security firewalls (temporarily) and restart your computer. Try factory resetting your modem and reconfiguring. Telstra support should be able to help you with that part if you don't know what to do.

See if that makes a difference.

Test an alternate modem before buying one (Mate, can I borrow your modem for a night or a few hours?).
