Is there any way that I can keep my ping at its lower state? A program for that?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
While gaming, my ping seems to fluctuate. It's really odd because I pay for improved internet. 15mb download 7mb upload. While this may not be the fastest, it is no where near crappy. Why can't my computer hold a constant low ping?

While it starts out around 20-30, it will randomly platue at 200-300 for an hour or 2, then subside. Randomly I will get 1k ping for like 10-20 seconds. Idk why this is, or what I can do.

I just want to play games and be happy boo hoo hooo

Well I don't know why specifically, are you using wireless or ethernet cable? It could be your modem. It could be the distance of you from the internet exchange or ageing infrastructure. I can't think of anything really specific.

You may want to try port forwarding, http://portforward.com/, getting a new modem, flashing the modem (which is updating its drivers if their are newer ones) or using an ethernet cable if you're using wireless. You could also spend a lot of money and replace the cabling of your household, but that really depends on how old it actually is. You could also call a technician and ask them to check it out. I called a technician to check out why my internet was failing, I don't remember exactly what he did, except that he replaced some parts in my roof, and the internet has been faster than ever (I can now download at 400 kilobytes a second, before it'd never pass 200).


It may also help to note that you're internet runs at 15 megabits per second, not megabytes. But you're right, you shouldn't really be having such a fluctuating ping.

Just in case you didn't see the post from your other thread.
Definitely call your ISP. I had a similar problem a year ago. It ended up it was one of the DNS servers I connect to was randomly selecting people and throttling the connection. It could also be the connection to the modem or the lines coming in from outside. When you call, ask for a Tier III representative; They actually know what they are talking about (they aren't reading from a script) and will understand your problem. Getting your modem replaced and lines replaced are free from your side as they are considered service calls.

Try doing a tracert using cmd.

Start > run > cmd > tracert insertiphere

Post those here to the ip of your server and that may perhaps help.

THis is usually dependent on the routes your ISP will take to the destination.

Also if your own Router is getting alot of load that may be an issue, but there is alot to take into account that may be out of your hands.

Personally in my own experience gaming on a DSL connection /w Fastpath profiles results in lower pings than Cable.
