Im not usually one to say this but this is just getting silly.

Its getting to the point where im going to be forced to change providers. I want to stay, but at the moment i cant evern update steam to access my games.

I can do more on my XT stick.

I get 9 to 11. No loss.

Gaming still works perfectly fine for me. Bar VoIP.

Cool... ok, now for something a little more interesting...

Run a tracert to telecom.co.nz... I'm not interested in the number of hops, or the latency to any of the intermediate steps, I just want you to be able to identify what the first responding hop is... Here's a tracert from my bigtime connection in Chch as an example...

Tracing route to telecom.co.nz [146.171.18.242]
over a maximum of 30 hops:
  1     2 ms     1 ms     1 ms  homeportal [192.168.199.246]
  2    12 ms    11 ms    11 ms  210.55.69.112
  3     *        *        *     Request timed out.

  6    28 ms    29 ms    29 ms  telecom-sdn-ak1-dom.akcr8.global-gateway.net.nz [203.96.65.198]
  7    28 ms    29 ms    27 ms  146.171.18.210
  8    29 ms    31 ms    29 ms  146.171.18.242
Trace complete.

See the first hop outside of my network? It's 210.55.69.112

Now, could you try running the ping command with that IP address... So like this...

C:\Users\neil>ping -n 100 -w 10000 210.55.69.112

Pinging 210.55.69.112 with 32 bytes of data:

    Packets: Sent = 10, Received = 10, Lost = 0 (0% loss),
Approximate round trip times in milli-seconds:
    Minimum = 10ms, Maximum = 17ms, Average = 11ms

So here you can see at the moment I have pretty perfect performance to the first visible hop outside of my network. When you guys have performance issues, please try this and let me know (either PM or through a post here) what the performance to that first hop is like.

Oh, I need to mention, please be 100% sure that your connection is otherwise idle while running this... no downloading, no windows updates, no P2P, no VoIP... Something ultra light like IRC in the background is ok - but I want to make sure you measure what I am trying to measure. Also make sure no other PCs connected to the router are doing anything at the time on the net...

Cheers - N

Things seem to have gotten better. I wonder if it was the peek time that amplified the issue?

I'm still jumping a little (ping wise) but its still 10x better than before.

Steams still not updating though. Which is a major issue.

ArcticSilver: Doctor - That's a pretty normal ping time to some where in the US.


I'm not expecting a low ping to the US, far from it. I'm questioning the spike in ping between 2 routers within the Global Gateway. (Between 8 and 9 on the trace route)
This is what we were asked to provide to 2nd tier support a few weeks ago (Albeit not a traceroute to Cisco)
The explanation given was those routers were causing the grief and apparently they were told it had been sorted.

What makes you think the the 9th hop is not in the US, looks like the Global Gateway router in LA or San Jose to me.

I'm not sure to be quite honest, I was somewhat under the impression we went to the US via Australia and that to get to the US the jump would be more of a staggered increment rather than something so sudden.
That and I imagined Global Gateway routers to be around NZ and Australia rather than in the US.

5am and ran a test and almost at the speeds I used to get :) I can live with this, so hopefully whatever mysterious change/fault with gateway/complication/fault coincidentally affecting all of our routers at once/voodoo has now been corrected and its back to the good old days of me praising the post-Gattung Telecom to anyone that will listen.

Touch a whole lot of wood.
