  1. Not sure if these links will help or confuse you more. ICSI Netalyzr http://netalyzr.icsi.berkeley.edu/ will show a lot of info on ports that could be blocked and additional network info about my head. Once you run the test For info on your ISP check out Hurricane Electric BGP Toolkit http://bgp.he.net/ this will lookup you ISP and show you how many peers they have. I am sure other others here might be able to provide better direction but thought I could at least provide you what I found in learning about network issues.
  2. So far this evening it is stable and test show it is well above the previous performance. I have noticed a bit of packet loss 0.25% after 3 hours of pingplotter at 1 sec intervals coming out of the ISP before jumping to rr.com routes which is the largest at the moment most are less than 0.1%.
  3. Well after working for a bit the network crashed out so I went back to bed and checking this morning my pingplotter showed a lot of activity in route changes and it is back to routes across rr.com hops which is longer in the number of hops. Big test will be this afternoon and evening.
  4. Took longer than I planned to post again but since then I was able to talk with the person in charge of my ISP. What I gleaned from the conversation was they had three "providers" in March but two of the companies ended up merging then the two left were bought up by bigger national company effectively making the ISP a small fish in a big pond so getting adequate support was not being met. As 2:30 am traceroute shows we have a new provider as my traffic is going across windstream.net routes instead of rr.com ones. The real test will be later today and into tomorrow night if they faulter as was previously occurring.
  5. I will try an get an update by Monday to the still unresolved issue but traveling at the moment.
  6. What brought me here. Been dealing with lag spikes/ high latency with my ISP Frankfort Plant Board (www.fpb.cc) although this site reports it as CenturyLink. I pay for the 30 Meg down/ 3 Meg up, which is sadly the best offer in town, DSL option only 1.5Meg. My ISP has not really been forthcoming in my calls of complaint to exactly what the issue is except saying it could be weeks (that was over a month ago now and they are still say that). At first it was we(ISP) are waiting parts, another time it was the peering partners (only after I questioned them on that) or we are waiting on peering partners to do what they need to our hardware is ready. But from what I have gathered in researching this issue it may be a congestion affecting a wider area in and around Kentucky & Ohio and possibly other states too. http://forum.worldoftanks.com/index.php?/topic/280264-issues-with-lag-on-east-coast-on-time-warner-cableroadrunnerearthlink Which lead me to believe the issue is with TWC/RR not having enough capacity for the regional area. Below is my trace route to the World of Warcraft server I game on. I tried to pathping but it is blocked at the cable modem so fails out. I bought standard PingPlotter to see the packet loss as in-game my latency would be in the thousands then disconnect me or when the packets made it through all actions would render ultra fast on the screen as to catch up what happened in game on my screen. This was on three different PCs and after replacing my NIC with a standalone card in my newly build primary computer. Target IP: 1 my ip address 2 [] 3 [] 4 rrcs-98-102-206-241.central.biz.rr.com [] 5 [] 6 be24.clevohek01r.midwest.rr.com [] 7 be10.clmkohpe01r.midwest.rr.com [] 8 ae-4-0.cr0.chi30.tbone.rr.com [] 9 [] 10 [] 11 [] 12 cr1.cgcil.ip.att.net [] 13 cr2.dvmco.ip.att.net [] 14 cr1.slkut.ip.att.net [] 15 cr2.la2ca.ip.att.net [] 16 gar20.la2ca.ip.att.net [] 17 [] 18 mdf001c7613r0003-gig-12-1.lax1.attens.net [] Destination does not appear to reach the intended IP, this due to the Warcraft servers not returning the ping, this a known issue in tracerouting to the address by design. But eventually there will be packet loss on all points so not sure where the problem lies. Its been over a month like this without me having a real idea of how impacted/congested my ISP is. That was until I found this great web resource here, so much so I over used it and had to stop testing but to give you an example how bad it is here is the graph for over a 3 day period. https://testmy.net/stats/?&t=u&l=1000&q=Tracy%20Burgess As you can see the lows are horrible during peak. Thanks again for this resource. Trying to decide if I should downgrade my plan to the 10 download / 1 upload tomorrow which is a difference of $24 dollars a month, head the advice of another user of my ISP that recommends filling a complaint with the FCC. http://www.topix.com/forum/city/frankfort-ky/TPDBKV3TEB9ILB13H , or even applying for an open Network Administrator they have. Any guidance or sympathy would be greatly appreciated. Have a better one than me. Tracy B
