Need help with a routing problem

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I'm currently having an issue with latency on a game i play i ran a trace route and found what seems to be the problem but i have no idea how to fix this or if i can even do anything on my end.

Does anyone know if a program exists that can maybe route my connection a different way instead of through the bad servers?

Thanks.

Tracing route to 206.18.148.177 over a maximum of 30 hops

That looks not horrifically bad, you could ping loop the end point to see if there are any large spikes.

Hops 4-6 may just be too busy to reply in a timely fashion. Routing packets takes precedence over replying to pings, so you may see higher latency values that aren't actually affecting your traffic. The fact that it spans a couple of hops in different cities makes me believe that Hop 4 may be a bit overloaded/latent/spikey, though.

Not really. If you had a VPN endpoint that took a different routing path avoiding those hops, you could tunnel through that and then to the destination server. Otherwise you are at the whim of where various routing protocols think your traffic should go.

Only method is really changing ISP's but that is provided they have different methods of Routing.
But a Tunnel may be the only method but that can sometimes add latency.

Switch ISP, thats your only solution. There are no magical tricks or softwares.

Run same test again around 3AM, and you will get a different result.
