    Into the TCP flow? We'll easily see that if that's what is happening.

    I had Exeed and ping results were always Hugh because of latency. 400ish was the pings I got on a good day. I think.
    Rest assured, we have a backup of Farrar's car blog and it will be restored in the near future. (Steve Rice - March 2016)

    I must have remembered something wrong because those are a lot faster than I thought was possible??

    I had ~22300 m (distance to satellite at equator) x 2 (up and down) / 186000 m/s (speed of light) = 0.2397849462365591 or.240ms just to bounce off of the satellite???


    WTH I'm going with 600, minimum...until you guys straighten me out here LOL

    ...back to the $#&^%! weed eater a while...

    Honestly I doubt it is. But it's not unheard of. Comcast, and Verizon, used to do it to BitTorrent traffic all the time. Don't get me started on ISP deep packet inspection and manipulation.

A test for later on is to change the DNS servers your router uses from default (what your ISP tells the router to use during the dhcp handshake) and set it static to either the IPs of google's DNS servers or opendns's servers.

    Google's are : 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4
    Opendns's are: 208.67.222.222 and 208.67.220.220

    Regardless, I recommend changing the DNS servers you point to as they're most likely to be much faster at host name resolution than your isp's servers.

    Just did this, and it is faster loading pages now. Thanks for the tip!

    How do they do that? Set up a policy using NBAR or something like that?

    I would love to be able to randomly inject RST's into Josh's web traffic -hahaha!

    He was making that up and you totally fell for it. He now has complete control of your PC, DeLorean, and everything in your garage.
