If your sure your not affected by the poor weather up north.
I'd search the forum for the home hub 5 related issue "PPP LCP Send Termination Request" which could trigger the DLM in the cabinet to run higher interleaving levels. If your HH5 has been rebooting and you cannot stop it, the fix is usually to run a openreach modem, HG612 is easiest if you want line stats to check what the DLM has done. whatever happens, You'll still have to wait anything from a few days maybe upto a month for the DLM to reduce/remove interleaving if your line is good enough.
if your that intrested in gaming and pings it also begs the question why in the hell are you using a HH5 or any other ISP's router.
My first hop is 14ms with INP=3 delay=8 and interleve depth=1143
BBC.co.uk ping is 22ms
I've had lower on the odd day that DLM decides my line is stable with INP=1 and interleve= off, but usually it's back to INP=3 and interleved the next day.
i am not using the hh5 now i think that the hh5 was the problem with all the rebooting it was doing i am running a bt openreach modem now with a tp link router i think the hh5 has caused the problem on the line but it still hasent recoverd that has been three days since changing over to the openreach modem i havent had any reboots since changing but my ping is still hight in the 48-60ms range and my speed has still not recoverd my ping before this problem was around 26ms i have also noticed that my ip profile is diffrent now it was 61mbps but its down to 52.27mbps
her is the latest ping

Whats the difference between HH5 and BT openreach modem?
Do I request that modem from BT for free or do I have to buy it on my own?
If you have a HH5 you will need to look for one in the sales (they are going for about £20 last time I looked). The difference is the 'modem' component - the Openreach Modem is a seperate box that you connect the HH5's WAN cable too - so the HH5 becomes a dumber router not using its buit in modem and the Openreach box takes over the line negotiation and data transfer functions (rather than the HH5). Many customers report this works better and resolves reboot issues etc - however (for family use I have had no issues with the HH5 - tho I keep the older HH3 and the router in a box just in case.
