Ribnet speed

Is it just me who's having difficulty with ribnet speed? It's been poor for me for a few months but today is particularly bad with pages timing out.

Boat bad is fine.

I've never had a problem with Ribnet even when I was still using a dial up 52K modem. Now I'm with broadband I can even click on the thumbnails to see the bigger images

I wonder whether this problem is bad routing between different ISPs and the US server that ribnet is sat on - for me, the forums don't appear slow.

If you want to check and you have windows, goto command prompt, type in tracert www.rib.net and press enter. This will give you the route from your pc to rib.net - I am currently seeing average 25ms in the uk, and 110ms the moment it gets across the pond. Dialup users will see this probably go around the 500 to 1000ms mark maybe (it's been a while).

I have had some problems recently with playing games and its been my son. He's got an IPOD and downloads the podcasts. That just soaks up all my bandwidth and gives me awful latency.

If your on a router check what the rest of your family are up to.

Thanks for the replies, guys. I gave up earlier. The Boat bad comment was a freudian typo but I couldn't get to the edit page to fix it! Sorry JF. Now the traffic is low, I'm back to normal speed.

Alex, I'll do a trace next time it slows up....teatime tomorrow. I've checked the line speed and it reports ok.

Edit: I've just done a trace while speed is good. It'll be interesting to compare the timings at various points when it's slow.

Is it possible to dump the contents of a DOS screen to the printer or copy/paste it?
