Need a favor - computer people

Can a few of you do a traceroute (tracert) to like dfwstangs, yahoo, cnn and tell me what city you are in, your ISP and how many hops each one is? My service has really been sucking lately, and it takes forever to download shit from even Microsoft, but the speed tests all show up at 3Mb, like what it should.

dfwstangs.net is 12 hops
Yahoo.com is 14 hops, and slows down at hop 8
Cnn.com is timing out at hop 13
Charter.com times out at 11 hops - and is my ISP and slows down at hop 9

I swear they added routers or something and have things fucked up ever since they tried to offer 5Mbps downloads, even tho it is not available in my area yet.


TIA
Rob

Average hops for me is around 10 to those IPs. I have Time Warner cable.

Try pinging some of those IP's and see if you are getting any packet loss.

Sometimes I do, sometimes I don't. My modem will just all of a suden drop it's connection, then takes 20 minutes to get back on. I did the "chat with tech support" last night, modem went off line during the conversation and did not come back up for over an hour. This morning it has been hit and miss, and this afternoon it has been on more, but every website is very slow.

You are prolly getting alot of packet loss. Sucks.

trying pinging your gateway (external) with 50 or so pings, and see what happens. Maybe even up the packet size to 5k .

Are you using a router? Try bypassing it and seeing if you're having the same issues.

BTW, post in the right forum

This forum gets waaaaay more views. I have the router un-hooked, cable modem direct to one PC. To make sure it wasn't this system, I even tried 2 other computers, same problem.

I have charter in Benbrook, 3mb service, and I went through a month of almost the exact same symptoms. I called charter and they said they were expanding their service area in our region and it was causing technical issues with existing customers... Any how they didn't charge us for that month's service and it cleared up after about 3 weeks.

I have a feeling that is what they are doing here. Supposedly they will offer 10 Mbps to customers soon. I'd sign up for more speed, if they will fix this shit and make it available to me.

What kinda modem do you have? If it's a Motorola click the link to check signal strengths and such. Also, call charter and find out what the "acceptable range" is for the various values.

I had the same prob W/Comcrap/Time Warner and had to have a tech out to troubleshoot and isolate for neccesary repairs.
