I met a young retired data tech from my phone company last week at my business. I jokingly mentioned something about getting my ass handed to me regularly by 10 year old lag ninjas on various online games. I told him the reason why is probably because I live on the edge of town, a fair distance from any DSL hubs. He suggested I open up the box at the wall and at the house junction. Usually there are four wires per line, with each phone line requiring two - leaving the other two unused. He said to connect the additional lines to the two that were being used, creating a redundant connection. He said that should help with my lag problem. Does anyone here know anything about this? Does this make any sense or is one of my legs now longer than the other? I hope I described ti well, if not I'll try to fill in the gaps. Thanks for sharing any opinions on this.
