    I have ATT and idk what is causing my internet to have 1200ms ping to CS:S it fucking sucks. I have port forwarded, opened my NAT, and I even got a brand new router and modem. I have no idea what is causing my ping to be 1200ms

    Check firewall, unblock application or just turn it off. Turn off any antivirus.

      Anti virus shouldn't do that. I think most companies and products have figured out how to let css through by now in 2014.
      That was mostly a problem with really old firewalls.

      I just read you have att? ATT as in the dialup service? Or do you have their fiberoptics?

      Did you accidentally throttle your bandwith on the new router/modem devices?

      That is taken from wiki on NAT's. You said you opened it, not disabled it. I'm not familiar with these too much but after reading on them I would say that is what your problem it.
      You are probably taking things out of sync. You're making the router and server do more work making it go through all those steps to get to your packets of information.
      I think what is happening is things are having to be translated the way you've set them up so it requires an extra few steps.

      I've been having problems with some IP cameras I set up on a clients house because they went through an extender then to a router.
      What probably happened is while it's trying to send all that information it gets tripped up on itself keeps clocks in sync.
      It's like if you had a bunch of guys running a sprint race but put a hurdle in one of the guys lanes.

        Hmmm.. if not then port fowarding? That might work. You'll have to google your modem/router and have it port fowarded.

        He already has had to port forward in order to be able to use this NAT utility if I read it correctly.

        So what the problem is that he actually changed the normal ports it goes through to his desired one then when it sends the information it is sending it as if it was the port he forwarded.
        The problem occurs because he is actually taking his original address, making it another one, then sending it to a server which may not be set up to decode the proxy ip he made it into.
        When he turned it into a new address the server is probably set up to block repeated requests like that because of our recent DDOS problems.
        So either you'll get absolutely no connection or get a slow one because as it sends the data, decodes it, and interprets it, the data behind it becomes almost put into a que. As the problem starts it actually gets exponentially worse because you have things waiting to go through, even if they are still processes happening at extremely fast speeds.
        So you're jammin' your series of internet tubes, bro.
        Either way if I'm not interpreting that correctly I am pretty sure it's still the problem.

        I don't see how forwarding ports would reduce latency. Run a speed test at http://www.speedtest.net/ and try it to some different servers. First local, then try Montreal, Quebec, then try Dallas, Texas. Let me know your results.

          idk why it says <100ms ping for chicago when I play CSS on a chicago server its well above 1000ms. if i could punch the CEO of ATT in the face I would do so with a dirty diaper on my hand.

          Are you in chicago? If not, where are from? Though demographic in the continental US shouldn't affect it.

          Yeah that shouldn't be this bad.

          Quick and simple test. The ethernet cord straight from the modem, connect that to your PC. Bypass the router and confirm the problem aren't these:
          1 - Someone else in your house is like downloading 16K resolution pron
          2 - Packet drops happening on the router
          3 - Router is somehow on a low bandwidth profile as in it set to a cap (Though I've seen these on aftermarket router firmware)
          4 - You have like T-Rex size magnets in the insulation of your walls

          If with direct connection to the modem shows the same issue, try another computer. If same, call your local thrusty (yes thrusty as in "trust me they are screwing you by thrusting in you
          ") company.

          no one is downloading porn in my house, I do have three roommates, but I can tell if they are using the internet by entering my IP in my web application. I have been getting the 1000ms ping when I am the only one on the internet.
          as far as plugging in the ethernet directly into my laptop, I have to wait until tomorrow morning to do that.

          Dude you got NAT problems. It's software related 100% guaranteed, not your ISP or hardware.

          The other thing that you have not said anything about is if you are using any kind of scripts to improve gameplay. You could have some bad rate settings also.

          This is one of my favorite explanations of rates

          I think you should reset your modems settings, get it all set-up and leave it. Often messing around with it can cause issues.

          Okay so I reset my router and modem to factory settings. I still have 500ms ping in CSS. My download speed subscription is for 12MB/s and 1Mb/s upload. I contacted my ISP and they are sending someone out to fix it. I am also being compensated for the month my internet has been slow.

          Alright so part of it was settings. You could have a bad connection through one of your coax if it is something physical. Unless you have compression fittings etc. I wouldn't want to tell you to start cutting and testing the service feed.
          Have you attempted to put your modem in bridge mode? That can also cause conflicts if you are using wifi.
          Did you try connecting directly to the modem into port 1? Most ISP's use port 1 in the modem if they are set up in bridge mode.
          You're using dialup so your speeds are not going to be fantastic but you shouldn't be getting more than 140~ ping.

          Have you tried playing with your css rates now that you have had a 500 less ping. That link I showed explains how you can fine tune CSS to your connection.
          What is your ping outside of the game? Do you still have ping that high?

            You should swap out the modem if all else fails and see if that isn't causing your problem if not have them do a line check and make sure there isn't a defective line or part in between you and the server box.

            Are you questioning it? I know a lot about the ISP's so I'm pretty sure the speeds he is purchasing are from the phone line isp from ATT. They do not have the ability to use coaxial cabling since it's generally marketed by bright house or comcast.
            Generally ATT only offers two services, phone line or fiber optic. Often rural areas are restricted to phone line service as some cable companies do not wish to run the lines when it's a huge cost just for a few people to have cable. The other reason people use ATT or phone lines is because they are cheaper obviously.
