I'm getting High Ping rate in my online games, I never that this problem before, is this something to do with Interleaving or what else might it be?

More than likely interleaving. Apparently Virgin Media "don't support" fastpath latency.

Someone has posted a script on another forum for using if your having bad pings and it is currently set to work with netgears and usb modems. It searches for bams with pings under 20ms and will disconnect your netgear and reconnect you to that bam. Apparently it works very well...don't ask me how to use it though lol!

The only other alternative is to migrate away but contract restraints may prevent this.

Sorry for the duplication...stupid forum keeps timing out and it's very annoying when you've typed a lengthy reply.

He he! Hopefully someone else on Virgin ADSL will come along and translate it for you...I can't even experiment (will try anything after a few beers) as it only works for Virgin.

Should I update the Firmware to the latest one do you think?

  Dipso 16:37 22 Sep 2007

You could but I don't think it will help with the latency.

What ping do you get with say bbc .co . uk?

When I ran the speedtest.net it was looking at a ping at 240!!
