Hi
I'm using a dlink DIR 655 router and using wireless on my laptop. My ping for some reason is ridiculously high, I have no idea how to reduce it and it's really causing a problem while gaming. My download and upload speeds are also playing up, my internet is 10mb broadband but one minute i'll have 10mb down and 0.40 up and then it will go to 1 up and 0.9 down. It's really temperamental and really getting on my nerves.

Here's a couple of speedtests I just ran; my speed was 6mb down and 0.40 up just 20 minutes ago

Any help in solving these issues would be great.
Thanks.

Now that is VERY interesting, i've done loads of pingtests before in the past and they've always been 500ms +

Yes but what servers were they on? Also I would run 2 test right after the first to see if it differs. :thumbsup:

I've always run tests on the same server. I wish my down and up would sort them selves out as youtube vidoes are loading at a snails pace.

If your speed is always jumping up and down I would call my ISP and complain, I suggest that you do the same. :thumbsup:

Just had another idea,, take your laptop and set it right next to the wireless router and see what your speed is. You may have a similar issue as I had a while back with interference from something, try that and then if that does nothing call your ISP. :thumbsup:

My router is already right next to my laptop. I'll make sure to phone my isp up.
Thanks for the help.
