ping times and lag
I game online and am suffering lag on any server further away than Germany , my pings are generally under 100 on uk / near european servers, 250+ according to various central european game servers but go 350+ on American servers. Yet when i run a ping test with pcpitstop program my us pings are around 150
I have a 1meg adsl account with plusnet of which the speeds vary from 700 to 900 , i recently upgraded to this from a 512 account but it hasnt made a difference.
My internet is via a Solwise 130 router and Linksys efah05w hub , my puter specs are AMD64 3000,1.5gig ram,GF6600gt 128 graphics,WD 80g HD.
Is the router a good/bad model ? are there better ones , whats the best . or am i looking at the problem from the wrong angle .
