You have quite severe lag between you and your router.. That implies your PC is absolutely hammering your connection, or something is seriously fvcked at your end.

On an unrelated note I finally got an update on my complaint ticket.
Telecom: Dear xxx

Thank you for your email and providing the details.

I have been advised the there have been some changes made to the Big Time
shaping to address the high latency issues that have been occurring.

Please check to see if you notice any difference.

I apologise for any inconvenience.

Feel free to email me if you have any further questions.

Kind regards,

I'd usually agree his router was faulty or something.  But if he is using the router Telecom gives out, that is pretty much normal and is being miss-read.

That is what I was told anyway.

Yea, forgot who told me. I remember plugging in my telecom router to double check mine wasn't broken only to find the Telecom one was. Or so I thought.

It dosn't do any good in a situation like this where tests are needed.

On a side note. VoIP still dosn't work for me! Ugh!

I'm surprised more havn't left the plan.

I am holding my ground. I've got more patience than the general public on the plan. If they leave, it will be better for me.

I am also waiting for word on that global gateway. If they fix that (if they havn't already) I am confident performance will return.

But then again. Their track record so far has been more bad than good.

yea thats normal for my main PC, as it also acts at present as the network storage for the house. and its only a 100Mbit switch so the pipe between me and the switch does get afair bit of use :D

As for the router, yep its a Telecom Thomson, can't be stuffed buying another lol.

Struck 2:05.

VoIP...Sucks. TVNZ On-Demand...Sucks. Yahoo streaming...Sucks. Still syncing at 8128/864. Nothing torrenting, nobody in the house, wireless netowork is disabled, so nobody is using that.

What exactly does Telecom do when they say they are doing a "Port reset"? Worked for a while last time.

Well I decided today to dig out my old Dlink(Yes I know!) and disconnect the Thomson, Well talk about difference

Speed hasn't changed but the connection seems more stable and I don't have the disconnections. will try it out tonight with BC2, but I suspect that the Thomson Speedtouch that Telecom gave me is faulty. Thanks Telecom.

Also my first hop isnt reading 99ms anymore lol

The Thomson's do seem to cause multiple gaming issues in my experience.

Had to mess around with telnet and the CLI to get Company of Heroes and Left 4 Dead 2 working reliably on my friends one.

Last couple of days seem to be alright. Can get into work fine and speeds are relatively back to normal. Can anyone confirm what's been changed?

No confirmation yet.  TVNZ still sucks for me though.

this is completely normal on thompson router to see 99ms on tracert. I dont know whats behind it but IT DOES NOT affect performance of the connection. its got nothing to do with PC, its a router problem.

so yeah. i've got the same thing.
