Ping suddenly become much higher.


[link to this post]
 
Been using BT broadband for around 5 years now with no problems (well, 1 problem that required power cycling the modem!). Today I've had one complete service down (fixed by resetting the modem - I think) and my ping in games has gone from ~40-50 right up to ~200. Doing a tracert I get this:

C:\Users\xxxxx>tracert google.com

Tracing route to google.com [209.85.143.104]
over a maximum of 30 hops:

1 2 ms 1 ms 1 ms voyager.home [192.168.1.1]
2 31 ms 33 ms 31 ms 217.32.145.1
3 165 ms 160 ms 167 ms 217.32.145.30
4 159 ms 167 ms 168 ms 213.120.181.66
5 137 ms 150 ms 152 ms 217.32.25.46
6 168 ms 162 ms 151 ms 217.32.25.182
7 161 ms 155 ms 144 ms acc2-10GigE-10-2-0.sf.21cn-ipp.bt.net [109.159.251.202]
8 181 ms 165 ms 176 ms core1-te0-12-0-6.ilford.ukcore.bt.net [109.159.251.133]
9 161 ms 168 ms 175 ms core4te-0-3-1-0.telehouse.ukcore.bt.net [62.172.102.25]
10 167 ms 159 ms 152 ms 195.99.125.78
11 186 ms 160 ms 168 ms 209.85.255.175
12 170 ms 167 ms 178 ms 209.85.250.216
13 195 ms 192 ms 183 ms 209.85.253.201
14 200 ms 184 ms 208 ms 216.239.47.26
15 185 ms 184 ms 191 ms google.com [209.85.143.104]

Are the first two hops local? After that it seems the pings are really high across all hops. Is that right? Is there a general service problem today or is my modem going tits-up?

That is at your exchange or close by ... but try a full reboot of your PC and router. If it is still there, a call to your ISP (BT Residential or Business) is needed - with the evidence.

What does the tbb ping test to you look like?

Have just tried www.google.com and the final server IP address you reached and get 11ms and 25ms

My Broadband Speed Test

Bit [censored] actually. Much worse than it usually is. Played with MS Network Monitor to see what's going on and there's no other activity (HTTP or DNS).

Actually using MS Network Monitor there's a constant stream of TCP chat between 4.26.236.126 and 192.168.1.2. No clue what they are. With nothing running network utilization in task manager is around 3% (100MBs). I don't know if that's relevant either...

If that is the case you have a constant 3Mbps connection - what is your sync rate or IP profile?

Strange, it's just changed:

Pinging google.com [209.85.143.104] with 32 bytes of data:
Reply from 209.85.143.104: bytes=32 time=52ms TTL=50

Weird.

My Broadband Speed Test

Also, the TCP traffic I was getting from the previously mentioned address has stopped and my utilization is now 0%. I have no clue what that was all about. IP lookup shows it was an address in the US (!).

The IP address you has was part of the block 4.0.0.0 to 4.255.255.255 allocated to Level3 Comms - a large US conglomerate. Why you would be streaming from there who knows but they do provide hosting and management services.

Now that has gone you seem to be back to normal.
