I assume that you mean "total reliable packets."   If you're looking at your statistics bar (CTRL + Shift + 1), that's the quantity shown as Total Unacked Bytes.  That's described (in http://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/Viewerhelp:Statistics  ) as "The size of the reliable packet data sitting on the server waiting to be acknowledged. A large number may indicate a thin pipe or other possible problems between the viewer and the sim."  In other words, there's a bottleneck somewhere in the path between your viewer and the servers.  You might try doing a tracer analysis to see where it is.  Open the Windows Start menu, then type CMD into the box at the bottom. Press Enter, and the black CMD window will open. Type in tracert login.agni.lindenlab.com and see if any timeouts or other problems appear along the route.

If you want to provide extra information or need to clarify your question, click on the Options link in the upper right corner of your question and select EDIT. Please do not start a new thread. Doing that makes it hard for us to see what other people have already suggested, and it pushes other residents' questions off the page.
