Well - as you have seen - ping times are not always a good predictor of network performance.

Did the inSSIDer tool show other wireless access points in your area? If so, maybe you can pick a channel that is away from them.

I personally do not see a big difference between ping times Wi-Fi vs. LAN cable, but my ping times are not too bad:

Maybe it is your router. One way to find out would be to try pinging Google from several other wireless access points. (Visit some free Wi-Fi spot or a friend's home or ...)

Edit: you can also ping the router and see how much of the ping time is within your network. Maybe do this from different rooms.

hmmmm yea ill try that! thanks
