    We all know that Orcon UBS sux as far as pings are concerned but what about
    the other UBS ISPs? What's the ping like for other UBS providers?

    I asked about this in the ihug.bliink newsgroup the other day. Local
    pings are about 40ms longer than non-UBS and international ones are
    pretty much the same.

    eg. On non-UBS/ihug I'm getting a 47ms ping to www.auckland.ac.nz and
    UBS/ihug bliink users are getting about 85ms.

    Can you guys try a foriegn IP? It's Orcon's international ping-times that
    are the problem. Maybe Google or something?

    That being said, last time I checked the results for 'ping' and 'tracert'
    looked reasonable, however in-game results were far from acceptable. Almost
    like it's an intermittent thing. I can play for a few minutes fine but,
    every few minutes I get atrocious lag spikes.

    Could be windows sucking as per usual, something on your computer doing
    its thing, spyware downloading or email checking itself each x minutes.
    Is your lag introduced at regular intervals? Could be the server you are
    connected to or anything. I had a similar issue once, was back when I
    used outlook express to check my hotmail and every 5 minutes would look
    for new emails and consume almost 100% cpu usage for about 20 seconds
    and while it was checking it would introduce horrid lag.

    Here is one to google anyhow:

    I close down pretty much everything before I fire up my game. I have nothing
    accessing the net or sucking CPU cycles. I'm pretty sure I have no spyware,
    I run AdAware and Spybot regularly and run Spybot's Teatimer which monitors
    registry changes and lets you know (and asks for confimation) if anything
    attempts to change registry settimgs.
