Off peak wow latency

Post by DarkLotus » Sun Apr 06, 2008 11:29 am

Since the first of april, I have had terrible latency in WoW during offpeak times. Latency in game hovers at around 800ms, and also appears to spike badly every few minutes.

I cannot back this up with tracerts as http/icmp traffic is 100% fine during this time.
As soon as offpeak ends my latency is fine again. and hovers at around 300-400 with no spikes.

Now this isnt major since i have classes again on monday and wont really be playing WoW a whole lot, but still its an issue.

What connection are you on, and what times are you noticing the lag?

Sorry i didnt give all the details.

The bad latency starts as soon as offpeak does, and ends once peak time starts.

There's no difference, I've tested Blackrock Twisting Nether and frostmourne.


Running 1.5mbps in regional victoria.

Hi there,

I've noticed the same thing.

Running ADSL1 in NSW (Killara)

Happened especially during Zul'Jin fight ..
Wasn't able to create threat = die :(

Actually last night started occurring around 11pm

Sigh haven't had this trouble for a while but it's started to happen again recently....WoW lag starts on the dot at 12am - even with various DST changes meaning relative time to the US servers changed twice. Sometimes traffic is delayed for 30-45 seconds - just in WoW. The fact that it co-incides with the beginning of the offpeak period leads me to continue the belief that the issue is related to the offpeak / onpeak periods.

I'm going to upgrade my modem's firmware ...
and also I've opted into the Fair Play policy to see if that will make a difference.

Also applied to finally jump to 8Mbps =D (though that probably won't help much)

Last night .. the modem just died (NB5) .. and I've had to reset it.

Lucky .. had 15 min before Crypts reset (Heroic)

Actually to be fair .. I don't know what died .. the modem or the router.

I've upgraded the Modem's firmware (Latest Apr 2008)
and I'll change it so the modem takes care of the DHCP / Login.

The Netgear wireless router will be purely used as an access point.

Maybe it was overheating.

...

however, still doesn't address the latency issues, but like i said earlier, I'll try out the Fairplay option.
