For 3 weeks my online gaming has went to complete garbage. My speeds are good and ping tests are great. I get kicked from everything xbox live, ps3, pc. I've had 3 techs out and 4 modems replaced. Proper port forwarding ad even dmz has been set up for the devices I try to use. As of now a tech told me they are sending someone to replace the cards in the CO (small town of 500 people). This morning I still have the issue and called Tier 2 and they told me that the person that will "LOOK" at the cards on Monday and if nothing seems wrong then they will start back with sending a tech to my house. They already ran a new line to my house. I ran shielded cat5e from NID to a wall plate. Line tests show good but something is happening from the CO out. I also had a port swap to another card which happens to be the same card my brother and neighbor is on and he is having the same exact issue but we can't seem to get an answer. I thought tier 2 were the gods among men for uverse but apparently i'm wrong. It's just frustrating that I can't enjoy online gaming. I'm always on call as an IT Director for a hospital and can't work remotely anymore and have to drive 30 minutes to take care of simple tasks that I normally could do from home.

Tracert's the highest I've seen is a 140ms-170ms. Far as joining only with good connections supposively the matchmaker handles that and is supposed to kick people with bad connections but we all know that is. I'll try some more tracert's this afternoon.

I've developed a pattern that all through the night until early morning hours everyone is having issues as I've asked around town but during the day everything is perfect.

I definitely apologize for all the inconveniences. Are they having the same issues with running online games, general browsing, or streaming?

Its even happening right now with my brother as he is about ready to cancel his service and if this doesn't get resolved I'm pretty sure alot more will follow suit as this is a small town.

Did you mean 1400 byte packets? 1400 byte packets are actually pretty large, about as large as can be sent without fragmentation.

ping is a measure of latency, and is measured in seconds or fractions thereof, most typically milliseconds (ms).
packet size is measured in bytes (B), not bits per second (bps).
This may be as simple as somehow you've been shifted to the wrong game servers for your location and now your traffic is being sent way too far away.

What do you mean by "my ping server?"

Got a call from the regional line manager and he is telling me that he was told that the issues resides at another location and will let me know more about it.
