Re: Ping to European servers

So I have been testing it for the last couple of days and it seems more or less fine again on the Telkom account. The issue must have been with Telkom, if I have issues again I might post again.

It helps having a backup account for internet now, though. Thanks for the help :)

Re: Ping to European servers

Yeah that's very true. I will get a chance to test it maybe this afternoon and this evening, so here's to hoping it goes well.

Re: Ping to European servers

Kind of just realized that using the new router nearby is not an option because of the RJ45 WAN port concern. Unless I get an extremely long cable to go from the dsl router to the tp link.

Re: Ping to European servers

Alright, so I have tried using an Afrihost account and I must say that it is much better (at least for now). I started off by testing my latency (in-game, not with cmd.exe) on both WoW and Arma using my telkom data and the latencies were both pretty bad as I mentioned in my first post. I then switch...

Re: Ping to European servers

Thanks for the replies! It was actually working fine this morning for about an hour and then when back up to the high latency. I will try connecting my laptop via cable as well as creating an Afrihost account. I remember a friend having issues with his Black ops 2 which were sorted with using afriho...

Re: Ping to European servers

Thanks for the reply. I have not connected my PC directly to my router, reason being that my PC is on the complete opposite end of the property. My ICS setup has been mostly fine, I have been using it for over 2 years now. My ISP is telkom, but I haven't tried another ISP because my dad uses the int...

Ping to European servers

Hi everyone I hope I'm posting this in the right place, but its more network that gaming I guess :P So lately I have been playing Arma 3 on some European servers where my ping would go between 160ms to about 200ms, maybe up to 300ms if it spiked. Thing is that suddenly I have had the issue where whe...

I don't think I will ever forgot Bioshock Infinite. The ending left me thinking about it long after. Until now only movies could do that.

Friend's R16000 build

Hey everyone So I was initially putting together a list of parts for my friend under the budget of R9000. After his birthday his budget went up to, well, high (for me that is). His dad got a new list suggested to him by another computer guy and now I made changes to that list as well (a couple of th...

Re: What's keeping you on XP?

I am planning on making a XP partition just for my really old games using those ancient installers. For me the whole look of OS has become quite important. That has always been a problem for me in XP and downloading windows 7 or Vista themes is not really worth the trouble. Windows 7 and OSX look gr...

Are all the current 1155 mobos going to support Ivy Bridge with an update? Or will it only be the Z68 ones?

To do this should I just uninstall and reinstall the Local Area Connection drivers?

Thanks so much for all the posts guys.

Hey guys Since I got my desktop internet has been a bit of a problem. My wireless ends just outside my bedroom (I don't have a wireless card on top of that) and my 3g cap is a low 250mb pm.

Re: Which screen to get?

Really? Now looking at it, it does seem like it is better for the price. So should I really go for the BX2031? I just want to be sure from other opinions.

Re: Which screen to get?

Well the SA350s are a bit out of my budget (more than R2000) and I haven't found any 20" versions of that series in hope for one being within my budget. I am looking at the Samsung P2070 and Samsung S20A300B monitors. The P2070 is LCD with 2ms response and the S20A300B is LED with 5ms response. By t...

Re: Which screen to get?

Thanks for the replies :)

Then is maybe something like the Samsung P2070 (R1550) worth looking at? I would like to order from Rebeltech, because I find a lot of their pricing good and I know them now after ordering my PC parts from them. :P

I already had a look at screens with faster response but the 2ms start at about R2000, from where I look up my parts :/

Re: where 2 now

Yeah. I disagreed with that. An i3 build is very upgradeable for i5 or i7 and I have read about many people happy with their i3 cpus for gaming :P
