Links to tracerts included at bottom:


Everything has been perfect up until yesterday. Fast speeds, low latency. Suddenly I notice problems with latency and speed to my server in VA. I ran a tracert and the first one comes back showing me routing now from Hamilton to ny.shawcable, which passes me to! This is when the problems arise ( I didn't know accepted residential traffic? )


An hour passes, routing changes again, and things get worse. I check again routing to Virginia ( south of me ), I'm going from Hamilton, out to Shaw Winnipeg, then out to Shaw Calgary, which then passes me to Peer1 Vancouver?


As you can see there is something wrong. My VA server is 900 KM South, and I am being routed 4500 KM West?


Please advise, many of my other servers are also seeing poor routing changes.
