Use non-standard ping target.

Post by SirSWE »

As I know it selects my WAN as default. But I dont understand how to know its working.

Does it select diffrent trace route or does it help to lower the ping with ACC? Should I go for 1.1.1.1 and trace my ping to 8.8.8.8 or could anyone help or explain abit.

You need a reliable target that will be in the path of most likely congestion.
You also want the target as close to you as possible.

It is trying to watch and see if your ping goes up which might indicate the link is becoming saturated. This then let's it know to control the connection down until ping stabilised.
