LO i keep thinking should i update the firmwear of my draytek vigor 2600 ADSL router beacause my ping has increased from 20ms to 50 ms when i play online games and im not to happy about it. Tweaking doesnt do much but if i update the firmware would it help put things back to normal.
If the ping was good before, upgrading the firmware is unlikely to improve matters. The problem most probably is somewhere "out there" on the net with a slow link.
You can try powering down the router for a minimum of 10 minutes and then restarting to see if you get a different VP.
To be honest, you can expect ping times to go up and down as network traffic increases and contention on your exchange increases. There is nothing you can do as more people get online.
