i have been trying to connect to a server in Chicago. i can connect and use it no problem but the route it takes from my house to the server is really weird. i have been getting slower speeds to it since September of 2012 approx 20+MS from an average for 32MS which was livable and recently it has gotten worse close to 100MS+. i did a tracert to the server...

Tracing route to 206.18.98.240 over a maximum of 30 hops

11     *       59 ms    70 ms  63.240.130.202 (this is the end server in connection to)

all looks fine expect hop #4 according to multiple IP tracking services this hops geological location is just north of the MB border as seen in this link

http://www.ip-tracker.org/locator/ip-lookup.php?ip=66.59.178.221

if this is true then why is my connection going hundreds of KMs north then going back down to Chicago causing high pings and slower connections? and is there a way to make it not go though this hop location because it never used to go that why to connect to the server

any help or suggestions is appreciated.
