I have been with Flip for nearly a year and in the past two weeks I've run into a problem; My Ventrilo packets have been getting throttled to the point where I cannot connect to any servers, local and international.
At first, I thought It was my modem, so I pulled out and installed my back up one. I then thought it was my PC then found none of the hardware in the household could connect to a Ventrilo server. Clients, even after fully uninstalling and deleting all local data then installing again, still no connection. In fact, I followed every single troubleshoot guide that there is on the internet.
I set my Ventrilo to "auto reconnect 9999999" times with a five second delay between each reconnect and it seems it connects fine around 9am, NZ time, then doesn't like to connect past 4pm. Which is a shame since between 4pm and 9am is when I need it to bloody well work.
The funny thing is, tracert's and ping -n's come back flawless.
I need to know, are the VoIP packet blocks or throttles?
Skype and TeamSpeak3 are fine. It's my connection with any Ventrilo* server and my friend Mitch, who is also with Flip but lives in Hamilton, gets the same problem around 4 - 5pm everyday, since Tuesday last week.
