PS3 ping compared to Desktop ping

Using speedtest.net on my PS3 I get

And with my Desktop I get

My PS3 is actually wired (As of today) and my desktop is wireless using a dongle. Shouldn't I expect the pings to be the other way round?
I know the download speed has gone a bit wacky and obviously incorrect  but the internet is defintely more sluggish on the ps3.

Don't rely on speedtest.net for ping Smiley
Seriously, it's pretty dreadful most of the time.

Re: PS3 ping compared to Desktop ping

Well I agree with ya but all this time my ps3 has been wireless and while sometimes a little laggy depending on who is hosting the COD4 game I did expect now with fast path enabled and the fact that my ping went from 40 to 20 that if I wired my ps3 it would be brilliant? a little too much hope... maybe  Undecided

You should get pings using a wired non-interleaved connection.
The pings will absolutely vary depending on where the person is that is hosting the game.  Always try and use a UK connection if possible.

You say that, but I need my fix of shooting Americans in the face when they shout a lot. I'll have to weigh up the pro's and cons of ping and Gunishment.

I appreciate that, but remember your ping has to cross the Atlantic, so it will always take longer to get there and back.
