I have been using iBurst for about 5 years now and I have always had decent latency within WoW (EU) CSS (Local) average about 200-330ms for wow and 40-60ms for CSS.
The last few months I have been using the new 2MB modem and it has been very frustrating. My 1Mb modem works like a charm especially for css 40-60ms no problem. I plug my 2Mb modem in and that goes to 90-100ms latency 100% signal. I test download speeds and no problem
Download Speed: 1449 kbps (181.1 KB/sec transfer rate)
Upload Speed: 391 kbps (48.9 KB/sec transfer rate)
Latency: 155 ms
Thats the mybroadband speedtest with my 2Mb modem. I deem those speeds good for local and I shouldn't have any issues the latency is what concerns me. But no matter what I do my latency for local games CSS BF3 etc are horrible and I end up plugging in my 1Mb modem to play.
Looking at my 2Mb modem I have the latest firmware sent to me by iBurst the following info is from the routers webpage
Aligned BSCC 19
Link Status Connected (1)
Link Speed 0 / 0 kbps
Frame Error 0.00 %
Signal Strength 100 %
Software Version C104C0C9
Software Build Date 2011.05.24
Hardware Build Date 2001.10.04
Is there any way to assist me with the problem? also is it just me that is getting better latency from my 1Mb modem?
To me it feels as if I have downgraded my latency for faster download speeds and being a gamer thats just a rubbish trade-off.
