  1. Starnge problem and ping results

    I've noticed problems with my bb connection. I can get online no probs but
    when I play any online game it really stutters and ends with me being kicked
    from the server, even though my ping is very low. I've raised this with my
    ISP and have done several tests and the results are very strange - look
    below:

    Packets: Sent = 50, Received = 50, Lost = 0 (0% loss),

    Approximate round trip times in milli-seconds:

    Minimum = 14ms, Maximum = -14ms, Average = 8ms

    Trace complete.



    I've never seen minus numbers in ping rate or such a high number. I'm using
    a router (Draytek Vigor 2600G) and all was well until a few days ago. Any
    suggestions would be appreciated.

    Very odd. You obviously can't have negative ping times! Chances are that
    it's a larger *positive* time than the software can handle, and is displayed
    as negative due to its twos-complement value.

    It's still odd though - because I would expect it to time out rather than
    report a very large (or negative) value. Have you set a timeout value with
    the -w parameter, rather than using the default? When it reports these large
    values, how long does it *actually* take to respond - assuming that you're
    watching it?
