I mean right now, I'm the only one using the internet and I've got a couple of pages open, a Skype call (no video) on the go, and my ping still seems quite high crazy

Well for example when I normally ping Google I get a reply within 28ms, but right now that is going up to 64 sometimes even 100.

In my latest test I got:

1st ping. 53ms
2nd ping. 42ms
3rd ping. 30ms
4th ping. 64ms

That looks normal to me. Having some of the bandwidth in use means that one or both legs of the ping are delayed until there's room on the connection to carry it.

You can see the same effect on this BQM graph of my Zen FTTC connection. At around 1630, the connection was in use to download three DVD ISOs from servers fast enough to saturate my 74Mbps downstream bandwidth.

Thanks guys, it's easy to get a bit paranoid about these things, you were right as soon as I finished the Skype call ping times and the speed test went back to normal.

Must say looking at your stats/profiles I'm feeling some 'broadband envy' tongue

Everything's been going well last few days, my DSL has stayed up with no hiccups, and I could say the same for my Internet except just now I noticed the following in the event logs of my router:

Feb 10 03:16:40 PPP link up (Internet) [90.246.63.123]
Feb 10 03:16:40 PPP CHAP Chap receive success : authentication ok
Feb 10 03:16:24 PPP CHAP Receive challenge (rhost = ESR2.Ilford5)
Feb 10 03:16:08 PPP CHAP authentication failed (Internet)
Feb 10 03:16:08 PPP CHAP Receive challenge (rhost = ESR2.Ilford5)
Feb 10 03:15:51 PPP CHAP authentication failed (Internet)
Feb 10 03:15:51 PPP CHAP Receive challenge (rhost = ESR2.Ilford5)
Feb 10 03:15:34 PPP CHAP authentication failed (Internet)
Feb 10 03:15:34 PPP CHAP Receive challenge (rhost = ESR2.Ilford5)
Feb 10 03:15:18 PPP CHAP authentication failed (Internet)
Feb 10 03:15:18 PPP CHAP Receive challenge (rhost = ESR2.Ilford5)
Feb 10 03:15:02 PPP CHAP authentication failed (Internet)
Feb 10 03:15:02 PPP CHAP Receive challenge (rhost = ESR2.Ilford5)
Feb 10 03:14:43 FIREWALL event (1 of 1): modified rules
Feb 10 03:14:43 FIREWALL event (1 of 1): created rules
Feb 10 03:14:42 PPP link down (Internet) [90.246.162.188]

Is this anything to worry about? I was thinking, doesn't the internet connection have to reset itself to get a new IP address sometimes?

Also, wil this reset my SNR Reset waiting period at all?

Thanks

Your sync stayed up but it took about 1,5 min to authenticate with ISP. You may or may not be allocated a new IP addy. These things happen occasionally; nowt to worry about, This should have no effect on your DLM profile.

Yeah I have been assigned a new IP by the ISP, anyway am I right in thinking, if its an occasional PPP dropout then it's most likely happening between the exchange and my ISP?
