It depends where the jump is. If it occurs at an EA router then they will probably be more willing to fix it than if it occurs at your ISP router.

Call them and ask them why the latency from one cox router to the other is so fucking high.

Download and run Spybot Search & Destroy to make sure your system isn't infected with spyware or other bad stuff that hogs your connection.

Is it me, or has spybot and it's ilk gone down in quality over the years.

Fortunately for me my ping has stabilized around the 29-34 region, just the damn packet loss on EA's end is pissing me off now.

I don't know what you mean Ender, Spybot has been constantly updated and improved by the author for a long time.

It is just that many have been slipping in their detection rate as of late. Now I admit I have not used spybot in a while but most of tjhese buggers seem to be a bit deficient.

I am going to check it out now though just for my edification.

seriously you guys must be the biggest retards that come to computer pings and speed.
A. Clean up your system processes so you can stablize your system better
B. Find a good cable/dsl provider.
- dsl speed depens on how far you are from server
--Cable is dependent on how many comps per node usally 8-12
--- So find which is better for you. If you ask the cable when he/she is install you can probbly get on a separate, which equals better consistancy in ping and usally lower. When all else fails browse the line to find different ips. Most cable providers dont block unused ips so you can change your modem to that ip with reality ease.
---- For you advance people you can always edit the bandwith config file on modem to make it better.
----- Don't use notorn anti virus or any massive secuirty program usally slows down internet from 1/3-2/3 of its normal speed. YES YES you need one but there are better ones out there that allow less system usage with better results, ie zonealarm.
C. Then after you get you connection right use a tcpip optimizer to fix you defualt settings. Basiclly allow more packets to be sent and received. Opens up your buffer basiiclly.
D. Run speeder if you want.
--speeder speeds up your system timer, and processes some what. If you are running a clean system setup correctly on a decent connection speeder is useless. Since UO has certian caps on running walking and loading there isn't anytrue speed hack everyoen falls under the same rules. Unless you are running striaght off the server then, Server has to proccess houses and send them but it is possibe to run through a house or any solid objects that are in the game. This is do to the fact the sver hasnt loaded it yet. This happens on in sever circumstances. Ie and OC line and a awesome comp.
E. Stop using these usless programs when you can just use a simple tracert command or ping command in a command window.

This along with browsing your local intranet can, and is actionable by your ISP, and they will drop you for violating their terms of service. Hell they may even sue you on privacy violation grounds.

As for TCP optimizer it is a placebo for the most part.

Speeder is illegal and should never be suggested.

As for using the command prompt, that is all well and good, but when I want to look at a histogram of a days worth of traffic I'll use Ping Plotter. It will let me isolate trouble areas so I can bitch to my ISP about the latency issue at x time on y day.

You should never modify or edit settings on your cable modem's firmware. That is illegal and at best your ISP will cancel your service. At worst the FBI will be knocking on your door, confiscate your computer equipment, and charge you with a felony (this actually happened).

Speaking of retard..

A. Good point

B. Yes always a good idea
-Distance from the Dlsam, Not server.. and these days its usually mitigated by Rdslams. Not to mention yor distance from your dslam has nothing to do with your latency unless your so far out your line is incrementing errors. Of which they will generally pull the connection and say sorry.
--Your concept of Node is off. When it comes into a neighborhood it comes into a digital Op Amp. This is where it breaks down to RG series copper. *this is the Node your are thinking of* off this node you have 8-10 Home runs of RG-59 quad that feed other amps. I op node servers about 150-250 homes and is capable of 155 Mbs on the data side much more on the video.
--THe only thing the installer can do is put you on a split off the local amp, and this only helps if you live in an apartment. A house isn't going to have that many splits to begin with.
---I loled at this one. Older docsis 1.0 was hackable in some instances. 99% of us customers are on 1.1 or 2.0 and 1.1 requires digitally signed firmware. 2.0 Caps bandwidth at the CMTS.
---Yes use anti Virus... No dont use the network packages like kaskersky's internet security or Symantec's Internet security. You have a Firwall built into windows and 99% of you have a Router with Nat that doesnt forward ports.
c. TCP optimizer changes your MTU window which will allow you faster downloads will not affect latency.
D. Cheat if you want to. not for the rest of the crowd, how many times do i have to tell you bandwidth has no correlation to Latency, once your badwidth exceeds your needs you could go from 1 meg to 2 gigabit and your latency will not change.
e. God so true... i hate that fucking program.

Kudos to Quagmire

Ditched McAfee and got zonealarm

MUCH better
