High Ping All of a sudden...

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I had to switch to an older router (really old, linksys SR41 v2, must be 6 years old) for a few days and after making the switch I am experiencing really high ping times. Nothing else has changed besides the router (settings, modem, service, cpus, etc). My isp provider is Cox Cable and with my last router I never had this issue, running Windows 7 on both cpus.

Both of the computers are connected to the router through ethernet cable. There is no wireless connections going on (the router doesn't support it). So high ping times are experienced through an Ethernet connection. The strange part is, I am getting high ping times now without the router as well (pc connected directly to modem). Running ping tests through CMD shows avg ms to be about 100ms to my provider.

This doesn't affect general usage of the internet including browsing/videos/etc but it greatly affects gaming, double and almost tripling my ping in most games (Battlefield 3, League of Legends, Heroes of Newerth). There are a lot of lag spikes and I get kicked out of servers often.Again, nothing like this has ever happened before. I've been using this service for 3 months.

Since I'm experiencing the problem both with my router and my modem, I would assume its an ISP issue but is there anything I can try before I call my isp tech support out here? I don't want them to charge me a ridiculous price to come out here. And also, this only started happening after I switched routers so I would assume its the router but as I said its affecting just a modem connection as well.

Any suggestions?

Have you reset the modem?

Yeah multiple times. Even had my isp do it on their end a few times, it lowered pings briefly (brought them to 70-80ms) but it just went back up after connecting everything back to the router.

If you can get a different modem that should fix it I'm thinking.

Well it's weird because I had this modem two days ago set up with a different router and I had no problems at all. Since the only part that changed in the equation is the router, how could my modem be affected?

Could it maybe take a few days for the modem to optimize its connection to my isp? I've reset it quite a few times today.

Open a DOS prompt and type 'tracert overclock.net' and see where the bottleneck is

Also been checking pings through cmd prompt ping command and tracert to gaming servers. Gaming is where the issues come out.

Your equipment is fine, the servers you're connecting to suck though. In games 30-150 or so ping is very playable in fps games.

23 ms = "really high ping"?

The first hop to my exchange is more than that

Nothing wrong with that speed at all... 23 ms for a 400 mile round trip
