Hi, I live in Alexandria Virginia & have a 5 mbit cox cable connection at home that is very fast. I work downtown in Washington DC where we have dual T1 lines here in the office. Both connections aren't FIOS or anything, but they're reasonably fast. That being said, I get significant lags/ping times when trying to load http://tuzworld.com my wordpress blog I host through dreamhost and Conserpedia.com - an environmental wiki that my office hosts. I'm talking ping times on both sites, from both locations, of between 400-800ms on a regular basis. Its seemed to have gotten progressivley worse in the last month. Is there something on my end I can turn on or off within the control panel? Should I raise this issue with Dreamhost?
The Tuzworld domain is simply running the newest version of Wordpress with a single, very small, mysql database. The Conserpedia domain is running a 3 month old install of Mediawiki w/ a single, small mysql database as well.
