Lowering MS Ping Tags: Internet Service Providers Modem Networking Last response: August 18, 2011 1:19 AM in Networking Share Lukums August 17, 2011 2:25:08 AM Hello All. I'm from Australia and currently using TPG. TPG I found isn't bad, however I'm looking to lower my ping greatly. I've tried many tunneling services they would take me down to 200ms however this still isn't good enough. I'm curious, how much is this based on ISP and modem hardware. Should I be changing ISP's? Should I be changing my belkin modem? Any suggestions or idea's would be greatly appreciated.

The modem is quite horrible, Belkin N150 standard edition. Do you believe the modem could be the main cause? m 0 l Related resources Wireless Network Problem: 500ms ping, 30% packet loss, and 2% theoretical speed - Forum Lowering My Ping - Forum Lowering Ping/Jitter - Forum Ping Issue, stable 40ms then jumps to 200ms, constant pattern.

I changed the Belkin N300 with a Netgear N750 the difference is huge no lag spikes no drop outs, my ping has changed from 465 to 291... I'm suprised this was the cause, I never thought modem hardware effected the Internet connection this much. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Publish Related resources SolvedAny way to lower ping?
