1 connected to the modem
another next to it, connected w/ ethernet
3rd [the only good computer] is wirelessly connected down the hallway
In a cod1 server, I ping about 50-60 on the wireless computer, and on the 2nd computer that's connected to the 2nd port on the modem w/ ethernet, connected at the same time to the same server, it pings 70-90.
They both have the same configs [rate/maxpackets/snaps/etc.]
The ethernet computer isn't full of junk or anything.
Why is this, and what is there to do about it? I tried changing the ethernet cable and it's still the same. My main concern is b/c I've had wireless troubles lately and I figured I might just move the modem in here, cause it'd help out with gaming since the other computers are just dust collectors. However, I don't want to do that if the ping is going to be affected in a negative way.
I mean, it's quite a short ethernet cable, and I even tried a different cable. The statistics are shown in my modem configuration. I reset the device and then had both the computers connected, the one directly connected to port 1 and the one beside it, connected to port 2, and here's what they are currently, after running for almost an hour.
