Jitter

Just did a ping test, and can anyone explain jitter, in laymens terms?
Would wireless affect this at all? (test was done on wireless connection)


Cheers

Re: Jitter

Jitter isn't really a term used much - it's something pingtest.net have put on their tests though.
I think it's the difference between the lowest/highest ping in the test. So the lower the number, the better.

Re: Jitter

If the ping was to the device rather than the router then the wireless may well affect the results, otherwise it wouldn't.
