Help! Horrible Ping speeds!

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
My internet connection felt really slow, so I did a test on pingtest.net and I think the results are indicating a problem.

-2% packet loss
-542 ms ping time
-86 ms jitter

What is going on, and what should I look into as far as fixing it?

I reset the router and it fixed the problem momentarily, and after a few minutes it is now back to around 400ms again.

What is the problem? Bad router?

Can you plug the computer directly in the modem?

That way you can eliminate your ISP as the problem.

As per your other thread, talk to your ISP first.
It's possible that there is a configuration or line level issue on their end.

Did you try changing your DNS servers? That fixed my ping issues and it's quick so it's worth a try.

Changing of DNS will not resolve ping issues to IP addresses.

Yeah sorry for the double topic post, I wasn't sure if this was the right forum to post this in so I switched it but then realized I couldn't delete this one.

BTW plugging the computer directly to the modem resulted in no change in ping values.

It's possibly a bad node somewhere from your node to the gateway.

Pings speeds is not a correct term

Did you just recently change something in your network? Your ISP could be the problem. Or bad firmware on the router. Or a bad router. Or if it's D-link, both.
