hop in connection to game server from Tampa area in FL

Message 1 of 32

See my trace below from PingPlotter. It shows a bad connection at hop 6 to teliasonera. I talked to a few friends that have helped me along this far, but they don't know how to resolve a bad hop. This has been happening for almost a week now to a server in Chicago. Destination ip is 50.31.112.213. Anyone have any clues on how to begin to fix the hop so that I can maintain a better ping on this game server? Thanks in advance for your help.

Can you download this tool:

 

http://winmtr.net/

 

And let that run for awhile, and take a screenshot of it so it shows up nicely and easy to read?

 

 Example:

Sure I downloaded it and I will run it for a bit. It seems to be very similar information to what I posted that it's gathering.

I live in the tampa bay area, and Im getting the same exact problem with other gaming servers. If you find out how to fix it please update me, I went from getiing 40ms to a Newyork server to over 120

Will do if I hear anything. I've heard from a fellow gamer that possibly going through a VPN will help. I haven't signed up for one yet, but i'm seriously considering it. Some of them you pay monthly or yearly which makes it substantially cheaper. I've tried VPN before for international purposes, but never for something like this. I'm not sure if it will work or not. If I try it, I will let you know how it goes.

There is nothing to fix. That particular router(or hop) is just not returning the ping reply. It is a security feature that is sometimes utilized.

That hop drops no matter where you try to ping. I've tried Google, Verizon's Servers, and several different game servers.
