Is slow response time on a network singlehandedly server sided?

Question by Cilixblade: Is slow response time on a network singlehandedly server sided?
Hey,

So, as the lucky little prick I am, I got into a beta testing service of cloud computing, into one of the gaming services. The problem is that when I try to get into this, I always get the same error: “Your network response times are unusually high. Please try again later.”

Apparently, that may be because I’m to far from the servers. Since I live in Norway, that may not be so weird. Though, I know something is messed up with my network.

Obviously the question is:”Is slow response time on a network singlehandedly server sided?”
If it is, well, the problem is obvious, if it is not, and my network may be the problem, how can I fix it and how can I check it? I’m pretty sure ping isn’t network response time.

No because if the server was always the problem, nobody would be able to use it.

Try this: Go to Start–>Run and type in: cmd. When the command window opens type in: tracert x.x.x.x (where x.x.x.x is the IP address of the server you’re trying to reach). You will then see where the delay is taking place because you’ll get a list of routers between you and the server and how long each hop takes.

Enjoy.
