Re: Is my ping high

Yes I'll do it tomorrow. I had a feeling you would ask this. But it's still high regardless, we browse the Internet on our tablet's and Web pages are lagging .

Re: Is my ping high

I was asking because if your network is busy, you would see a raised ping due to buffer bloat.

That said, here is a quick test on my laptop which is using WiFi.

Always best to do tests while A your network is quite and B as mentioned by using an ethernet lead straight into your router.

I've had some strange slowing down of general browsing and have managed to figure out that for me anyway it depends which gateway I'm as to how things are performing etc...
