Hi all,

I'm having trouble with playing on-line games, the one i play the most is UT2004.

My ping could be as low as 8ms(4am) and 20ms day time but still  getting packet-loss. I love playing on-line games and that bit of loss i can really see or not. The hole game would hang for just a second but long enough to die in a instaGib game.

I don't know what it could  be and its doing it all the time.

I got all windows updates (xp home), all hardware is up to date with drivers. just got a new router and opened all router needed hum. Ad-aware, spybot and avg scanned.
Connection 1MB/1MB

My isp was having problems but say thy have fixed them witch i can see with my low ping.
Would it be OK to post some tracert and ping -t test on here for help understanding them

Try pressing f6 in game.. it should give you the stats in game about your connection.. It could be the server that is having a hiccup or even their network..

Thank you Smile

Packet-loss IN 2-4 all the time.
Packet-loss out 4-8 sometimes

The packet-loss IN seems to be constant. Theres only one server i don't get this and its hosted buy my ISP.

This is about all i can think of.

is it me or my isp?

Should i just change isp's, i get the best low ping out there but packet-loss, maybe its because its so low that I'm hitting all the bumps?

Iv just got a new router and its helped a bit but still doing it Sad

Any ideas?

If it's like that on all servers than it's likely you, lost packets are is something you would ask the ISP to come out and repair.
