So could be wrong in some of my terminology or understanding, but this what is happening. For 3 or 4 weeks now,after a certain time at night, my ping/latency skyrockets. The difference to me seems that at night, the routing table changes. Before 8 pm’ish, when I ping in CMD to an ip, lets say in TX, I get in the 50’s. But after 8’ish, same IP , I get 250+. When I do a tracert, I notice that after 8, I go through a ceratin IP maintained by SBC/AT&T in philly. When I call my ISP(comcrap), they tell me “once your signal leaves our servers, we have no control”. I have tried reaching SBC/AT&T via phone, impossible unless I have an account(need a correct account number or you get nowhere).. no replies from emails I have sent. Is there a way I can exclude that IP in my routing, so that my signal will by-pass it? Or does anyone here work for SBC/AT&T?
