Very high ping (PC game), please help

Hi,

 

I just thought of making a topic over here before calling BT which is really annoying because they keep transferring you to another person.

 

On topic:

I have some ping(latency) issues with my games, esp. Counter-Strike.  I had this issue for a bit long now, on a UK server I get 60ping and I'm from Lisburn i thought that was good until I found out that a friend of mine get 30ping and his from Armagh which is about 30miles away  and another friend of mine gets about 30-40ping and his from Omagh.  Can you please tell me whats wrong?  Armagh and Omagh is further down so I dont think its my location and + Lisburn is a big city.  3mb dl/0.48 ul

 

Thanks!

Really depends on which RAS you're connected to...and traffic on the backhaul to the RAS.

Doesn't really mean you'll get the same latency as them, even though they;re just down the road..  😉

 

Have you tried tuning MTU and RWIN settings?

Read up in this thread, also Google is your friend.

 

But take care before changing stuff, be sure you know what to do...

 

if in doubt...  don't.
