Bad Internet Quality While Gaming

Hello,

 

I am experiencing large difficulties gaming on my PC. In iRacing my Ping stays low, but my quality drops though the floor. I have done many traceroutes to the iRacing servers and have consistent timeouts. Here is a trace route I did just now.

C:\Users\austi>tracert 67.218.1.1

Tracing route to bosrace01-orig.iracing.com [67.218.1.1]
over a maximum of 30 hops:

Trace complete.

 

The trace leaves my house just fine, but is often interrupted almost all the way to the iRacing servers. Once or twice every hour I will dissapear in the sim, and my competitors cannot see me, or my car on track. I also experience regular, breif internet issues while using MS Teams and work VPN from home. 

 

Thanks,

 

Austin
