Internet Response Issues

    Help me figure this one out... Any online game I try to play, whether it be CS:S, or Runescape, the response is very slow, or not there at all. CS:S it continues to retry to connect to the ZE server, and Runescape takes forever to load or doesn't load at all, as well as the textures in game take a very long time to load to the cache (after I delete the cache, but it usually runs faster). Now, I tested my internet speed on SpeedTest, and it is exactly what it has been: the mediocre, steady connection I've always had.

    Now, I'm quite sure this one's on the tip of my tongue, but I can't seem to figure it out yet. I figured I'd just ask any of you guys if you knew my problem.

    EDIT: Web pages/Youtube videos/radio streams seem to load/play just fine.

    Hello Brett these issues are two different reasons, i had an eye on RuneScape for a little while now and the reason it's slow is because they are doing the upgrades(Getting ready for HMTL5/RuneScape 3 ~ Video just in case) which comes out this summer, they are testing something on the servers which causes the lagging i have alot of disconnections on RuneScape and quitted trying... For more information go to this Game update(s) this evening or **Login issues?**

    Well about PlagueFest servers i can't tell why the servers are not responsing but i know it started up with a horrible lag...

    Hope this helps a bit.:smile:

    Hm... I seriously thought this was on my end... I believed it was the Runescape servers until I had trouble with CS:S servers as well (more than one). This will be one hell of a coincidence if these two are different problems.

      I don't really deal with networking/server type stuff, though I plan to study it in the near future.

      Brett what you need to do is run CSS in a window mode and at the same time have a command prompt open. This way you can see if you are dropping packets.

      Ping your local gateway first. with unlimited responces. This is done by typing your gateway ip then -t

      Example: ping 192.168.1.1 -t

      Then see if you are dropping packets locally. If not then ping to an ouside IP like level 3 DNS server Ping 4.2.2.1 -t and see if you drop data packets. If you do not drop packets, then you will want to do a trace route and see if a hop has latency issues.
      You can then notify your ISP about that issue. That is just a start, give it a try and reply back

      In a command prompt type tracert google.com, tracert yahoo.com, tracert plaguefest.com

        Seems I fixed the problem, I'm having no more issues in both games. I simply reset my router and now I'm running fine.

          :grin: you just pulled what the people calling me at work do not, power cycle first :razz:. Power cycling the router or modem usually works 90% of the time lol.

          I so want to summon @Badgriuel. Oh oops I did :clown:

          Also yeah rebooting a router sometimes helps. I was getting horrendous speed on 1 of my routers which doubles as a Access Point. Found that it hasn't been reset for like 6 months

          Your cache or queue buffer was more than likely full. It also depends when the last time you reset your router. I like to cycle my modem and router once a month to. I don't mind the 0.00001% down time.

          I like to believe Comcast is somewhat to blame for this, since my internet is terribly shoddy and goes out often (past 2 guys who re-cabled the home did a completely shitty job). I forever drool over the thought of moving to Kansas City, solely for the Google Fiber @ $70 a month.

          Well, Google Fiber is slowly being approved for expansion. I'll be surprised if GF doesn't dominate the market by 2016, depending on how cable companies monopolization of regions is battled over in court. But if you're really having issues with your internet, have Comcast redo the wiring (they'll do it free of charge), and replace the splitters you have with better signal out. You might just have a low input/output signal. If you have your internet coaxial plugged into the -3.5dB slot, change it to the -7.5dB slot. If you don't have these, tell the shitty Comcast rep to upgrade your modem and splitters or you're changing service. Also,

          They need to freaking upgrade North American infrastructure and stop being in the dark ages of networking. Europe is beating us.

          It's just the fact that Google considered a city 1 hour from me before Kansas City and they turned me down... -.-

          And lol at the meme, never seen that one :ROFL:

          WRT54G or WRT54GS Do you have stock firmware or DD-WRT? By the ways those have horrible memory leaks in them so that is why your shit needed a powercycle.
