Small ISP generally have better pings since they are not that aggressive in their connection settings. Comcast, here in California, doe a lot of packet shaping that adds a lot to pings. When I was with my previous ISP, my ping was easily half my current even though they used same trunks.
bro i love all the info you gave me, and thanks for it, but to tell you the truth i got nothing from what you seed lol, i dont know much about routers thats why i posted this, i dont know what ISP is or what a ping is, but from what these other people seed it seems a router cannot affect my performance online. i think ill be fine with my router, on all the other computer in my house anyways always have full bars. but thanks man, if i was a little smarter that probably would of help me more lol
