Ok i got it installed and not crashing - but right now it had no affect on the ping. I'm still 500-600ms :(

Thanks a lot for your post anyway.

For those of us using Vista x64, this is the x64 equivalent. Usage of the x86 version by common sense will not work.


Edit: Applied the hotfix. Made no difference as far I saw, but I'll conduct further research.

Would disabling the hotfix do anything.

Blizzards so called fix in the patch 2.3.2 has me trying to raid SSC with stupid spikes of about 3-5k lag.

I think It may be affecting it but ever since the patch from 300ms to 900ms constant.
/facepalm

All tracers point the finger to when it leaves Australia.

I agree

I too am sufferring bad lag spikes.

What going on exactly? Like during the day the connection is fine then I get a 10sec lag spike.

It happens at random times.

I havn't been on WoW for a couple of weeks now, is there any sort of time frame this happens in? or is it completely random?

Also, can anyone comment on if disabling the hotfix improves performance after patch?

Hi again

I still haven't problem with my connection.
The latency is very unstable in wow. Would you guys know why the problem is still continuing.

Thanks

For the past week now lag has been incredibly unstable. From 11pm me and my partner have had really unstable and horrible lag.

I disabled the hotfix and it continues getting to extreme highs as high as 9000ms.

Hop 4 timing out is normal. It is an Exetel internal router that is configured not to respond to ICMP (traceroute) pings. All that really matters is consistency in the delays (19ms at hop 3, 20ms at hop 5-10, etc).

This is completely off topic, i suggest that you create a new thread for your problem, as its a internal problem you have.
Reason why i say that? - Simple. Because of this

Those response times should be <1ms. Please create a new thread and keep this thread just for WoW temp fixes (as the thread title suggests)

Well since my problem was regarding how it was affecting my wow ping (and the fix that was previously listed here) constantly and saw other posts were directed here I assumed that making a new post would only lead to me getting sent here.

The reason the hop 4 got me a bit over worried is the fact this is the first time it is coming up with unable to respond, all other past tracers I have run, hop 4 has always shown up.

Also what you have quoted is my router, which will be replaced in the week.

Wow is still pinging terribly bad. =(
EDIT

Unless any of the admins have a problem, I'd rather keep all WoW ping related discussions in this topic - save us spamming the forums with the same posts over and over again. If it bothers you that much, I can change the title if you wish.

All nastiness aside, Aussie WoW players should expect a bit of lag around 8-10pm each night due to Honor roll. This lag fluctuates between unnoticable to pings in the thousands to total disconnection. I may get in trouble for this, but pings also sometimes increase between 11pm to 3pm wether this is due to Fair-Play or not I can't say. At this point in time, I'd advise you all to delete the registry keys from the hotfix as it now the disadvantages outweigh the advantages when increasing the TCP ACK frequency.

Personally, since the patch (and removing the hotfix) my ping has risen from an average of about 250ms up to 320ms. so until Blizzard put a server in Australia, I don't think there is much else we can do.
