High Ping leading to gaming latency

To test my ping, do I just type "ping" at a command prompt?

I just typed "ping 212.159.10.1" and got this result:

==============================================

Approximate round trip times in milli-seconds:
Minimum = 31ms, Maximum = 33ms, Average = 32ms

==============================================


Isthis the correct way to test my ping?

If so, does that mean I have an average ping of 32 milli-seconds?

If so, is that good?

So many questions! Wink

Yes, that is one way to test your pings, but it's a PN address so it's only testing between you and PN.

However the pings are poor, I'm getting an average of 35 for the same location .

You think that's bad?

I just tried it with 66.102.7.99 (google.com) and it returned this:

What would be considered a good ping then?

I get around 30ms for google, I'm more concerned about your packet loss actually.

Have you tweaked your settings, i.e. MTU? how you connecting? modem, router?

high ping introduces latencey

At presence I am getting a latencey of about 1000 ms and really this should be something in the region of 300ms. Sad

But to me this is normal. Ever since I signed up to Plusnet I have always had pings this high. Gaming is a nightmare on EU servers, let alone US

I am trying to play "world of warcraft" online

I am a regular player of WOW and everything has been great until the last few days. My friends online with other ISP's are not experancing the same problem so it looks like it is plus net rather than the game server

Ahhh I understand now. I've been having a few ping problems of late, just within the last few days. Hopefully PN will sort it soon.

No, I haven't actually. Any suggestion?

how you connecting? modem, router?

ATM, I'm connecting with a Speedtouch 330 USB modem.

I am actually thinking of getting a router/gateway in the near future, but don't know whether to opt for D-Link, Linksys, Netgear or Belkin.

Wireless or wired?

Any suggestions as to which of the above routers are preferable?

For now tho', I could do with those MTU settings.

I did actually have a utility a while back that would set them automatically. You just had to choose your connection type/speed etc.

For anyone that's interested, I've just found the MTU utility and it's called "CableNut".

Anyone know if it's any good?

I've found a few lag issues when playing Guild Wars but I don't know if it's Plusnet or the Guild Wars Server. Also I don't know what the Ellacoya's make of the Guild War traffic.
