I was wondering if there is a program that will track and record my internet connection?

Im stuck with crappy Windstream DSL.
I swear my connections drops out and comes back up. web surfing any website occasional hangs/fails to load and in online gaming my connection drops out, looses connection to server, All servers, and there are thousands. This happens with call of duty black ops and BFBC2.

I never had any of these issues when I was with dejazzd, it has only started to happen since windstream bought dejazzd out.
Im looking for a with to give these yo yo's proof

my rig is in tip top shape, Im an advanced user/builder, I keep my rig sweeky clean

asus p6t deluxe
I7-920
6 gig ocz platinum
wd black 640 gig
evga 285gtx
pcp&c 750watt
10meg dsl connection

thanks

Your latency to the router is extremely high. I suspect that the router is overheating or something else is wrong. Have Windstream replace it.

Thanks for the help,
I noticed one other thing.
When i look at my local area connection status,
Speed shows-100.0 mbps I would think it should be 1000
I have a Gigabit Ethernet Controller
any ideas?

Most routers that ISPs provide are not gigabit compatible at this time. Your computer may be gigabit capable but it will run at 100 Mbps until you get a 1000Mbps router.

another reason Windstream Blows!
when my isp provider was dejazzd I was on a 10 meg connection, now that windstream bought them out they say they can only provide me with 6meg connection even tho they admit no hardware/software changes were made, all they did was hand dejazzd a bucket load of cash and changed the names on the trucks.
SO Frustrating
thanks again, you have bee a real big help

No problem. Glad I could help :)

Can I buy a 3rd party gigabit router that would be compatible? and if I can would it be worth it?
December 16, 2010 5:52:16 PM

Yes and yes. You'd have to disable DHCP on the new router but it would definitely help things insofar as your local network is concerned. However, let me make it clear that it will NOT help your connection to the internet, merely the connections between your computers in your house. If you're planning on doing any file sharing or media streaming I highly recommend going out and getting a gigabit router to piggyback off the Windstream router. You also need to be sure that your devices are gigabit compatible or else you'll be wasting your money on performance you can't use. :)

Why set your hops to a smaller.

you can reset the routing tables with this commands

netsh winsock reset
netsh winsock reset catalog
netsh interface ip reset C:\DAF-interface-resetlog.txt
netsh interface reset all
netsh firewall reset

Theres a german company i know ripping of the broadband ISP's with their tunnel client. All sorts of tweaks that comes with their client that lets you onto the internet without credit lol



thanks for the reply, Im not sure where I would use those commands and what do they actually do
