System: Still doing ping tests two and a half hours after it started and it is still high its averaging around 400-500ms at the moment so im hoping its starting to drop now, we will see...


What does a reverse tracert (from somewhere else on the internet to your ip address) show?

You should be able to find out your WAN IP address from your router or via http://www.whatsmyip.org/

Then use something like http://traceroute.optusnet.com.au/ to do a trace from them to you.

It good people from telecom still reading this thread, could you perhaps help me with my connection issue as well please?

I have trouble connecting world of warcraft server located in Taiwan, normally before 9am my ping in game is around 400-800 ms (which is very acceptable because I got used to it).  But once the off-peak time has finished, the latency increases sharply to 2-5 seconds range and frequently causes disconnections.

Here is the tracerout from my home router, I believe the W.O.W. servers in Taiwan also uses port 3724:

After ringing telecom with a ping of over 1000ms they explained to me that the latency is part of the throttling of the plan and that once you exceed 2GB of downloads in a day they will start throttling you which will effect both bandwidth and latency

I feel compelled to note that the second part of this sounds like utter garbage. (The 2 GB bit) I strongly believe this is not what happens and would suggest that either the phone rep you spoke to was mistaken or you misinterpreted what he/she said.

If you can quote me an incident number on which this information was given to you, then I'll see to it that the rep gets some better information. Feel free to PM this information.

The general comment that shaping can affect latency is true to an extent, but again, if this is being experienced to telecom.co.nz then something is still wrong.

It may have nothing to do with your connection, WOW servers are known for their bloated high latency (300-800ms) latency.

Krisando: It may have nothing to do with your connection, WOW servers are known for their bloated high latency (300-800ms) latency.


Americans in LA playing on servers hosted in LA get good latency.  I'm sure Taiwanese playing on servers hosted in Taiwan get good latency too.

It's quite likely to be a Big Time traffic management issue, I believe they made some changes to the rules they are using to resolve problems for wow players playing on US servers... if these rules are based on ip addresses or domain names they probably won't be applied to wowtaiwan.

The helpdesk will be of little use, I would try to contact Doozy the product manager at Telecom who helps look after Big Time, he's posted in this thread... why not pm him.  He'll probably be able to explain or help you (assuming he's not on leave).

Thank you Krisando and Ragnor for you comments.

I been experiencing two different performances in these two days. While most of times I got pings from 6 seconds to 20 seconds, I also got pings less than 300ms occasionally.

I believe engineers of telecom are tweaking the traffic filter (thank you for your effort) so I'll wait a week or two to see how it goes. If the ping is still bad I'll contact Doozy directly.

Cheers.

Line Attenuation 16/10 dB
Data Rate 7616/896 (ADSL1)

Also these pings are heavily affected when downloading, I'm positive all traffic passes through the filters. A 50ms ping will hit 500 just downloading @ 500KB/s. I'd expect 50 to bloat to maybe 150 or even 250.. but not half a second.
Never had issues like this on go large.

I would ring telecom, but i'm quite sure they don't care.


So I rung telecom yesterday because everyone was raging about the net being so unresponsive,
turns out they weren't interested in my complaint as expected.

Blanket response of Bigtime has traffic management, don't use it for gaming!

The tech seemed to understand it was abnormal, but did not have the authority to do anything about because it was a latency issue.

Is there any way for me to test the line? Will my adsl router show abnormality in statistics or line strength?
The problem is so intermittent that in the event a telecom linesman comes out, I don't think he's going to see it.
I don't seem to experience packetloss so i'm still skeptical that it's the line ultimately.

Hi there... Something looks odd from the quoted tracert and ping responses above...

The tracert looks like it goes to telecom.co.nz and resolves to 146.171.18.242 (which is the correct IP) but the ping then quoted is to 210.55.69.16.

I tried a reverse lookup for it and didn't get a match - it's a Telecom IP address by the look of it though.

What actual comment did you type for the ping command? Was it
ping telecom.co.nz
ping 210.55.69.16

or something else?

What sort of results do you get if you
ping 146.171.18.242

I'm not saying there isn't anything wrong, but we need to understand exactly what the nature of the issue is before it can be addressed further.

Cheers - Neil G

It's my gateway.

Because it's not the ping to telecom that is the problem, it's the latency my gateway is generating.

I got 50ms to telecom at the moment. You can see my ping during the issue from the tracert also.

Ah of course - I see now from the tracert.

In that case however it's _definitely_ not the Big Time traffic management as traffic between your assigned gateway doesn't go through the devices used.

If you haven't already, please log a call with the helpdesk as well and PM me the incident number, your phone number and username. After a call has been logged (don't bother logging another if you already have an incident number for this issue) I'll draw someones attention to this issue.

In other news, Big Time seems to be working pretty darn well for me at the moment (900 - 1.2mbps movie downloads), youtube is now working properly, my only gripe is damn slow rapidshare but I can live with that.
