any one else experiancing speed issues with overseas connections? specifcally world of warcraft. (its not just world of warcraft however http seems to have similar issues)
I am noticing a large number of tcp retransmits and very large quantities of tcp previous segment lost.
using xnets own speed test tool from their web site I get the following results

(i almost suspect packet shaping occuring or not enough upstream bandwidth)

4806kbps  / 123kbps   212ms
1364kbps / 125kbps  384ms
837kbps   / 123kbps  341ms
1490kbps / 24kbps 356ms
2746kbps / 126kbps 454ms

with the following adsl connection

Downstream Rate: 7547 kbps
Upstream Rate: 165 kbps
Downstream Margin: 20 db
Upstream Margin: 40 db
Downstream Line Attenuation: 28 db
Upstream Line Attenuation: 7 db
