LO all ive noticed something about my gaming pings there usually about 25 to 40 on my 1mb line. But now this has gone up to about 40 to 50 which is not good and effects my gaming quite a bit. Now the thing is i dont use firewalls and i dissable antivirus (and i know tweaking wont help neither). Im connected through a draytek vigor 2600 4 port router on my single pc and it gives excellenct results with gaming pings. Im on a 50-1 contention but i dont think this could be the problem. Even when its peak time when its busy i still used to get a gaming ping of 25-40 which is great for 50-1 ratio. I just dont know what the problem is, one day i go online and pings crap and it has been now for the past 4 weeks. Also my downloads speeds are great but my gaming isnt Sad. its a mystery. Id like it if anyone would help.

1. you aren't sharing your connection between 2 or more pc's and they are actively in use Online when gaming?
2. if no to 1. then you need to do a ping trace to find out why the pings have increased, could be a router/node in line to the game serve4r you use that is understrain. If its a PN router then they can do somehting about it, if not then you have to do a whois lookup to find the owner and mail them to let them know.

Try this free Utility for the ping trace if you dont have it or other utilitly already

I ment to do the ping trace to the game server IP not the portal, as you will have different routing to the game server. Occasionally the game server I admin, I'm routed via germany to it. So that throws up odd pings with the extra hops involved but thats outwith PN's control so nothing they can do about it.

What are you expecting because the ping time averages of 30ms look fine to me.
