Simply put, you can't influence/change/lower it any way. :thumbsup:

The results of a ping test vary depending on the quality of the Internet / network connection. A good broadband Internet connection (wired or wireless) typically results in ping test latency of less than 100 ms, often less than 30 ms. A satellite Internet connection normally suffers from latency above 500 ms.

I think that you can possibly lower your ping in certain circumstances. For example, if you are downloading and it uses all of your connections, your ping would be high. If you aren't downloading and have ADSL2+, try changing to a lower latency profile. Otherwise, what ReviverSoft said.

Thanks,
Taomech

changing to a lower latency profile.

Some literature on this, please?

@TechDisciple
Do go through this thread.

Sorry for not being clear ReviverSoft,
I am not sure if this is specific to my ISP, but you can choose if you want higher speed, with packet loss, or a lower speed but no/little packet loss.
I think thats how it works though my understanding of it is not very good.
This thread explains it better than I can.

^ Not a problem.

Well, It looks Internode has created a set of profiles, that tweak the connection settings to extract more out of the standard ADSL2+ lines, either for optimum reliability or speed.

In technical terms:

by trying out a few different sets of DSLAM configuration parameters on your very own ADSL2+ Extreme service line, to see what works best for you.


I am not sure if this is specific to my ISP

I think it is.

However, in the words of the Internode rep himself:

You need to remember that there are many factors which can affect your line when you're running it on the bleeding edge.
I too have these variations sometimes. My line is fairly long and I have about 46db of loss. My Annex A downstream sync rate ranges anywhere from 7.3Mbit down to 6.6Mbit. I know my line is clean, yet it still varies, and I get the occasional dropout... welcome to life on the bleeding edge :thumbsup:

Due to the nature of clearwire wireless, pretty much all you can do is move your modem around. Up higher, lower, etc. and see where it gets a better signal/speed/latency.

Clearwire is not as "plug and play" as cable/DSL is. You have to put effort into where it gets the best performance(aka signal).

As far as ping goes, you could probably get it a bit lower, but from past experiences(friend had them, not me) 90-100ms is basically the best you can get from them without living under a tower.

Yep, that's pretty much it.
