cox in phoenix area...***

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Is it really that fricking awful? I moved across town, about 15 miles, and I can't get a fricking decent ping anywhere.

Quakelive servers:

LA - 100
Palo Alto - 100
Atlanta - 350
Dallas - 200
Seattle - 250

15mb/s cox is starting to piss me off. We moved, our network isn't secure because I can't figure out how to access my roommates retarded wireless router, so anyone can be looking/using our web...I doubt it though. We're still downloading (sometimes) at about 1.2mb/s, but it's just slow as all hell.

Is this normal? I had qwest before I moved and pinged 30 to LA servers...anyone have any ideas?

Unfortunately we get nothing else for internet in the area.

*i've directly plugged in to the modem...I thought the initial PL was because it was wireless and it's the same. =/

*edit - pingtest.com - server that's 50 miles from where I live I get a D score - 150 ping with bad jitter rating and an PL that can't be rated.

Once half the neighborhood stops using your unsecured wireless access point, speeds should improve.

Give them a call, they might need to fix the line to your house.
Our ISP had the same problem at our house.
New line from house to box ran, issues went away.

Try powering down the modem for 5-10 minutes and plugging it back it.

If not call them. They can usually reset your position on the node. Also, the line they laid down might be bad.

What modem do you have?

Secure your wireless access point. You shouldn't start to troubleshoot until you remove that factor. I would also suggest getting a packet sniffer if you suspect someone is eating up your bandwidth.
