    Very high latency with Verizon in Philadelphia

    Called Verizon already, they determined it was not their issue and I need to see manufacturer support(for a network issue?).

    The high latency started about 3-4 days ago with random hiccups in internet possibly 1-2 weeks prior.

    C:\>tracert www.google.com

    Tracing route to www.l.google.com [64.233.169.103]
    over a maximum of 30 hops:

    Trace complete.


    It seems to jump after getting out passed my modem. I have tried connecting my modem directly to the PC with the same issue. I have even taken a 50 ft telephone cable and went from my modem to the Bell Atlantic box on the back of my house and connected that way with no change. This to me, screams verizon's problem. I cannot see how this could be anything other then a failing modem/faulty telephone wire on my end.


    I did ask if this could be an issue with the modem, he ran multiple tests and received back that the modem is working fine apparently. I think I am going to try and test the modem at another house wired for DSL tomorrow to see if it is my location or my modem.



    I also ran a trace route online through MIT(http://bs.mit.edu:8001/cgi-bin/traceroute)...

    (Edited out my IP with #'s, 15 and 16 are the same)


    Again, to me it shows me that something is wrong with the service. Any suggestions?

    Hop 2 is where high ping times start. It is the signals between the comp and the modem. Thus, you can safely assume it is not your ISP's fault.

    As to why ping times at hop 2 are so high, common cause(s) are:

    - malware in the comp
    - software firewall
    - electromagnetic interference on the modem
