View Full Version : Showing High Pings on MPlayer

05-23-00, 01:12 PM
Ever since @Home changed my modem to the cybersurfer 3100 when I go into Mplayer rooms people see my pings at 300-600ms. I show myself at around 26ms. Anyone else have this problem? Solutions?

Also when my modem was capped upload at 128k I could host 6 people sometimes 8 pretty easily. Now with this new modem I can host 4 before people start complaining about lag and the cybersurfer right now isn't capped.

It could be a few things causing your strange high pings.

To start off, it could just be more users recently operating on your node.

Or maybe the people you see at 300-600ms are 56k's or 28.8's

Also, you should be aware, MPlayer ucks up pings a lot. I've seen T3's that I ping via MS-DOS at sub 250ms at over 700ms on MPlayer.

Dahno, making some quick guesses from my puny 28.8 350mhz.
