    High Ping, Xbox live unplayable

    Banned
    In the christmas period 24th-30th the ping was very high 180-500. I've come back to this internet and the ping yesterday was 350 and the packet loss 20%. Not too bad now, still too high for online gaming though, anyone know why ?

    With : Virgin Media
    Connection : 10MB
    Netgear router
    SW20 Area

    No constant ping, jumping around everywhere, think this is the jitter

    **Like to thank everybody for their help, wouldn't have a clue without it**

    You can see the ping varies so much every test, not sure what the cause of this could be ?

    call virgin and complain about the packet loss
    and expect them to ask you to do stupid things, just say yes tried that to everything until they accept the fact that there is a problem on their end

    The answer is right there ! Jitter ! Bad quality line ? Not got the filters in ? Filter broken ?

    Packet loss was at 2% a minute ago, ping around 50, shoots back up to this for no reason

    Ok, irrelevant then

    Could be Virgin throttling your line or the wrong db connector in the back of your modem.

    Wireless of wired?

    Obviously very bad upload then, hence the varying ping. When I download from the server the ping is good and decreases, and when I upload its very bed. Think i've found the issue :thumbsup: Thanks everyone for your help, now the problem, what causes me to have such bad upstream :roll:

    His result is for ADSL, your on cable. You won't exceed 24 Mb/s on ADSL (of any sort) and to get the full 24 you'd need to live in the telephone exchange

    Utorrent and frostwire both closed when I did tests, could be a virus will run tests, recently got a new pc with windows 7 so not sure how a virus would have gotten on the pc

    your upstream test at speedtest.net confirms to me that you are uploading something
    hence the bad ping and packet loss

    you have something running in the background for sure
    on one of your pc's connected to the net

    if you cant find it have a friend who know's what they are doing look at it

    completley close anything that uses the net
    messenger
    ie
    firefox etc
    leave it for a min then type netstat in a command prompt
    it will tell you any open network connections

    It could just mean the return path on the cable is getting interference causing slow upload speed and packet loss. More than likely to not have anything to do with a virus/trojan.

    This is cable not adsl
    he's uploading
    there's one easy way for him to check your theory
    log into 192.168.100.1
    and check if upstream transmit power is 60db
    if it is you may be right
    anything under and your wrong
