I like to have a really low ping in games and believe something is causing my ping to be higher than it should.
I used to be on a 1.5mpbs down, 250k up connection and now I am on a 5.2mpbs down, 620kpbs up connection and am still getting the same pings to ALL servers...
I had the ISP come out and optimize the connection to about as fast as it will go(apparently) and everything seems good except for the pings. Downloads and uploads work as they should.
Things I've tried so far:
1) Had ISP come out and fix line/optimize connections
2) Switched from Mobo ethernet to Network card with same results
3) Tested another PC in the same area with same results
4) Was using 50-foot cable, switched with a 7 foot cable and same results
Does anyone have an idea of what's going on? At work I ping 34ms to the same server at home that I ping 64 to - work is only 5 min away. Somehow I don't think this is related to the actual speeds of my internet - my pings were the EXACT same as my old place with crappy net remember, could it be something else I'm missing?
