    Default Packet loss and Extremely High Latency to Foreign servers.

    If someone would be able to shed light on what's going on with BSNL's overseas connections it would be great.

    For the last week or so every single night latencies to any server outside India, particularly EU/UK/US are at least 150-200ms more than normal.

    The problem usually starts late in the night (around 1:30am) and lasts up to about 8am.

    It's also very unpredictable but generally latencies to LA servers vary between 469-530ms; when they are usually about 300ms. Packet loss also happens when the latency is above 500ms.

    Sometimes repeatedly disconnecting and connecting the BSNL connection fixes the issue (the latency drops down to the normal 300ms), but most of the time it either doesn't, or repeatedly d/cing locks out your modem for a few hours, which is incredibly annoying.

    anyone experiencing similar problems ?

    May be time difference .

    This is the reason why I cant play online games. But packet loss was 0% for this test.

    the strange thing is it happens only on certain days and at random times, though the problem is usually most frequent between 7am-8am IST.

    I was wondering if anyone knew if :

    1) Repeatedly disconnecting and reconnecting your BSNL account can cause a temporary lock on your bsnl account, preventing login for a few hours.

    2) Also, why doing the above sometimes changes the routing path used, and results in sometimes a better routing and lower latency.
    [And, if this is true, is there any way to always get access to the "better" routing path when you connect on to BSNL]

    I dont think there is anyway to change routing path by the end user. But if can be done then could solve a lot of issues (not to mention create new ones too).
