High Ping Fluctuations

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
This started about 3 days ago. Nothing in the network has changed.... I have a Motorola SB6121 modem, a Linksys WRT54G router (v5 with updated firmware), 2 computers on wireless and my computer wired. I get a B/C/D on pingtest with an occasional F; but almost never any packet loss.

I have already called my ISP and they "sent a signal", whatever what means, and I reset all my networking appliances but that didn't help much at all. Are there are tests I can do to make sure the problem is on their end and not mine?

I'm having really bad rubberbanding in BF3. A decent 60~ ping 75% of the time (I used to get around 20-40) with a spike of 150 20% of the time, and the last 5% goes up to 300ping or something, it's really awful.

Help!

Have you checked for viruses and programs running in the background?
That can effect ping sometimes.

Does it happen to all remote servers?

I didn't download anything significant in the past few days and I'm very aware and cautious with fishy & unreliable downloads, but I'm running a full MSE system scan just in case. It's highly unlikely that it's the problem though.

I don't know what you mean by this... I just ran a pingtest via CMD connecting to nyi.net (new york server hosting company, its very likely they run their own servers so its located in NY lol) and this is what I got:



In BF3, if I would remember accurately, an average NY server would give me about 10-40 ping. I live in Philadelphia.

As in, go ahead and test your connection to various servers, around the country. Try many locations, see if the problem happens on specific ones or all of them.
