Hello everyone! I have found a solution that some may, or may not know that can greatly increase your ping!
I'm sure most of you have that 200-250ms of ping while on the server...
If you didn't already know, this is because the host of the server is from the UK or England (not sure.) Keep in mind, this solution could affect you greatly, or not at all. Instead of spending time typing and clarifying questions, I've made a video. But, even if you still do have questions, comment below and I can try to answer them.​
Disclaimer: If you prefer not messing with your settings, that is up to you. This video is purely suggestions.




DNS Servers
Google: Primary-8.8.8.8 Secondary- 8.8.4.4
OpenDNS Home: Primary-208.67.222.222 Secondary- 208.67.220.220
CloudFlare: Primary-1.1.1.1 Secondary- 1.0.0.1
Quad9: Primary-9.9.9.9 Secondary-149.112.112.112
Level3: Primary-209.244.0.3 Secondary-209.244.0.4

Alternate DNS: Primary- 198.101.242.72 Secondary-23.253.163.53
If you would like more DNS servers, I'm sure you could just google "fast DNS servers."
If this guide helped you, let me know, or if you have any questions, feel free to ask. I hope this works for all of you!

I'll try the video later on, surprised the server is in the UK when I'm from London and get about 300 ping on average. Hopefully this helps my poor driving.

I’m actually not to sure about where it’s hosted.

I recommend Cloudflare over Google.

The server is hosted in Texas(just lookup the ip you connect to, unless they are proxy binding or using a rev proxy or tunneling), Clearing Temp does not help with network issues or lag or ping, Flushing DNS doesn't help either it just removes cache which is supposed to reduce your ping? Cloudflare dns doesn't log and is proven to be faster than google's. However i do recommend you research Regedit TCP/UDP(don't know which one gmod mainly uses on) optimization, keepalives, hell even go overkill jailbreak the system, write a ndis driver interface usually provided in the windows driver kit, overwrite and set rawpackets as enabled, hell even enable ip spoofing on sourceip header in the packet. May need to write a browser which actually allows you to set your 'ip' to whatever you need it to be, ASN's are unique but they have no checksum.

I have no idea what you just said, but yes.
This is all the information I've gotten over highly recommended tips that have many responses saying it helped.
