Hi, interleaving will knock 30-40mS of your ping time, but its only worth doing if you line condition is good. Can you post your modems line stats.

Yes, as long as your line isn't awful.

Well i got interleaving turned off now, seems to of been a good choice

 I use to get about 40 ping to NZ servers, and about 60-70 to Australia

I don't know why it says 0 ping for 1 of the servers, but my ping does sit at around 6-10 ping on CS:S according to the net graph

Well if you requested it off, it probably is off. My interleaving got turned off within a day. Rung up one night, next morning it was off :)
