First, please be sure to have the latency meter up and running within DAoC. You may do this by clicking on SHIFT-P within the game. Internet latency is ever changing and never predictable. What may seem like sudden lag due to the SI expansion may actually be an Internet connectivity issue unrelated to the expansion to help narrow down the problem at any given time you may download a program called HyperTrace from . Once you have downloaded this program, please run a trace to the following IP address: 22.214.171.124 , which is our default gateway IP. After performing the IP trace, youÂ may be able to seeÂ where the latency problem resides.
