Hello, my name is Rani, a friend of mine has a problem with his internet connection, when he is playing online games it "lags" very wierd like when hes throwing a granade there comes 2 grandes, and when other players walk, they are "teleporting" a small distance. while his ping is fine. When he is on his xbox 360 it happens the same thing, but there his ping moves from "green" to "red" the whole time. while in pc games the ping doesnt move seems normal. His using an Billion 5200 router with 6mb download speed and 0.512 mb upload speed.


any ideas? :??:

This could be almost anything, in order for you to be more likely to get an answer, reply with answers to these questions.

1, Who is your internet provider?
2, What else is on the network? IE little brother torrenting movies or sister on skype
3, What kind of firewall do you have?
4, Did you try to set up port forwarding on the router?

sorry, not familiar with british ISP.

try un-plugging your router for 10 mins and plugging it back in.

We have tried. all so checked the cables. and it seems fine.. Im guessing its something with the router settings. but im not really sure what to set it on :/

what you can do is do a continuous ping to an outbound IP, I don't know if the microsoft server accepts them.

but just in a command prompt on the computer type
Quote:
ping -t www.microsoft.com


what this will do is repeditally send requests to the web address. If you see several of them with inconsistent latency, IE
Quote:
64 bytes from 4.2.2.2: icmp_seq=1 ttl=55 time=8.52 ms
64 bytes from 4.2.2.2: icmp_seq=2 ttl=55 time=7.43 ms
64 bytes from 4.2.2.2: icmp_seq=3 ttl=55 time=7.30 ms
64 bytes from 4.2.2.2: icmp_seq=4 ttl=55 time=7.92 ms
64 bytes from 4.2.2.2: icmp_seq=5 ttl=55 time=7.92 ms
64 bytes from 4.2.2.2: icmp_seq=6 ttl=55 time=1600.1 ms <-----
64 bytes from 4.2.2.2: icmp_seq=7 ttl=55 time=10.3 ms


then you know it is the ISP. If it is, give them a call and get them to have someone check the signal strength/ consistency.

Also, is it a cable/fiber/or phone connection?

Okay we tested it and with the "Ping -t" .. and the ms ware fine on about 14mb but randomly jumped all the way up to 380ms with out having anything on the net. and it jumped up to about 380ms every 20 second. gota give the isp a call (: Thanks alot. hope they will solve the problem :)
