No Telecom would not put you in a different / bad pool for visiting a Orcon hosted games server,

Have you done a trace route or pathping to the server?

looks like your on a 8ms profile, your pings seem to be jittering about a fair bit..

if not wireless,upload/download saturation?

Looking like in this particular case it's congestion on Orcon's side Auckland--Wellington.
Napier--Wellington for peering--Auckland.

Also please post line stats, this will show your error rate which might be the cause also.

1) Telnet 192.168.1.254 (if you don't have Telnet installed just download and run Putty from Here)
2) Login with username: Administrator (with a capital A), press enter in the password field (there's no password)
3) Type "xdsl info expand=enabled"
4) Post output here
5) ..?

assumption on my part, but, his latancy to the first hop isnt high enough to be a 16ms profile, nor is it likely to be a 1ms profile.

it is also in line with about where a 8ms profile sits, give or take a few ms for distance traveled and such..

"   Delay [ms]:                                8.00           8.00"
You are indeed on the 8ms latency profile, you can attribute your increased latency to this.

We're on Telecom via Chorus fibre 30/10.

Telecom gave us an awful Technicolor TG587n v3.

When we telnet into it and try the above, we just get:

Modem state: down (Line in NoLink mode)
xDSL Type: Not Available

Is this expected behaviour?

Also, how can the firmware of this modem be upgraded?

Cheers!
