    For about 3 weeks now I have been experiencing many different thing with reguards to keeping in UO.

    Log in trouble
    Lag so bad it takes minutes to get anyting to show up on screen
    Once in 3 steps later freezing but all around me moves slow... but moving unlike me
    Disconection to UO to the point it tells me sync errors
    Times are random, different shards, differnet characters, using assist or not...Even tried my laptop, daughters lappy, sons comp... all are getting it.
    Called cable.... they find no trouble and have even sent out a line tech.

    It is making play in UO impossible...

    I have tried all ways to see if it is on my end... many say they dont have any trouble but minutes later they complain the very same thing... Something is up?

    I'm having these issues to. I also called my cable company and they said the same thing. It seems to be fine one day and terrible the next with other day being in between. It's getting old quick.

    I know that on Napa the lag for me is horrendous. And lately
    it has become almost unplayable.

    It seems the issue is with alternet.
    We have Fios and it seems to have gotten bad over the
    last few weeks.

    I ping 20 to 25 and still have nasty lag.

    Thats not bad at all !!! My ping is about 450-480ms to Europa, I can walk about 5 spaces before it freezes for a seconds then I can continue walking. I have to do everything on foot as having a mount is even worse. Pretty much limited to crafting now, as combat is just not fun at all.
