Find a program to do an ip trace route. Check the server's ip you are joining. I would bet you are getting packet loss. HUGE packet loss on the hops.
I'm sorry about not knowing my ISP. I guess I can't trust my Dad when it comes to these things. My ISP must be Quest then? And what's a packet loss?
quest is an isp . bingo. packet loss is loss of Information stemming from where you are( your house) to where you need to be ( choice of server). If you have packet loss, not all of the information is getting there and back, so you get increased ping and crappy movement. you can download Ping Plotter for free. you put in the ip you are looking to trace and it will tell you all you need to know. Or rather you will post back what you get so we can tell you all you need to know lol.
I contacted Qwest and they couldn't help me. I also tried Norton, and they didn't help me. Qwest said it was beyond their reaches as technical supporters and Norton was impossible to get through.
well if your isp is telling you it is beyond them .. It may be time to write the better business beureu.
To where? The Better Business Beureu? Who be they?
They are the ones that slap the companies around. it just depends on what exactly your isp is telling you they don't have control over. as a paying customer they should be able to do Something for you ... They can't just tell you .." It is beyond us " and leave that as a plausable explanation...
A quick question: Are you selecting the lowest "ping" or the first server that appears on the server list? Also check your Norton's activity log. It might be cutting you off. Last, explain to you Pops what is happening, show him and then have him call. Goodluck PS I too am having the connection problem but I live in a newer neighborhood and my cable goes out frequently when more construction starts up. So at the moment I have no choice but to deal with it...:(
