I need help, i have a great internet system and me and my family use the same internet, my son's internet seems to be going faster than mine, mine starts slowing down over time and getting slower and slower but his stays at 10-19 pings in his games. I checked my packets sending / receiving and i dont know if thats the case because the packets i send out is 1/3 of the packets i receive, so for example i send 1million packets i receive 3million packets back, is that right?
Heres my ipconfig

There isn't much you can conclude from the number of packets sent vs. received unless it just doesn't jive w/ the particular type of activity you're engaged in. For example, assuming you started your counts at zero, downloading a file will obviously result in 100x, 1000x, or more packets being received than sent. The packets sent only request the file (a command), the received packets are the file contents (the data). However, if you were backing up files to a remote online service like Carbonite, the situation would be reversed. As you start mixing these types of activities w/ all the other normal activities of browsing, email, etc., it becomes virtually impossible to draw any conclusions at all.
No, but my son is using the same connection and his connection isnt slowing down over time, nobody is downloading or anything. I'm Wirelessly connected to the modem and he is also so i don't know whats the problem
