High latency/high ping times
I've been having a lot of problems lately with high latency/high ping times with my AT&T Uverse Internet Service. See my example below when trying to run a tracert to www.google.com from my computer (results are the same from the RG also).
When this is occurring, speed tests show my bandwidth at significantly reduced levels as shown below.
A reboot of the Residential Gateway will restore proper bandwidth (~45Mbps down, ~5Mbps up), but only for a limited time. After 10-15 minutes, the poor performance results will return. Checks of my Residential Gateway by technical support are not showing any issues with my connection.
As you can see here, I do not see any indication of an issue with my broadband connection itself other than a slight difference between the downstream max attainable rate of my two DSL links
Is there something wrong with my hardware, or perhaps a larger issue in the AT&T network itself. These seem to be related to issues with routing of internet traffic once it leaves my home. Is anyone else having similar issues?
