Windows 7: How to lower the average ping?

pal I used to run a few CS servers with a few mates. Ping has very little to do with how well you do (unless you have an exceedingly high ping - which you don't) it all has to do with latency.
Think of it like this .... if your friend lives 2 doors down from the server and has a ping of say 1 then he should in theory win every game, but it doesn't work like this as the servers account for vast differences in distance to a degree.
If you turn off all or some of the heavy graphics and blood etc. then you will get a better latency. Try looking for some config files that will give you a better latency, the game wont look so pretty but you will have a better gaming experience and your play style will improve.
Remember there are ways to mask your real ping that will show others that you are getting a ping of below 5, these are normally cheats and most secure servers or good admins will be able to figure this out and either kick you or even worse ban you from these servers.
Join some of the relative gaming forums to to see how to the others get the best performance, you will be surprised at how easy it is to do without resorting to cheating

May people have to play with pings from 150-300ms and THEN it may start to show some noticeable degradation in reaction speed.

Anyone would (should) be insanely happy with a 30ms ping.
What he says is pretty much right. 25-30 ping on any multiplayer game is average. 80-100+ ping is where the game will start to lag. Your 25 ping won't go any lower. You don't need to be concerned about it. It's when it starts hitting 60-100 is when you should start worrying. Your game's not gonna lag on you. 25-50 ping is pretty normal. Unless you have Dial-Up or DSL, then you're gonna be getting 90 on average.

You're NOT going to start lagging with a low ping of 25. You really shouldn't worry about it.

well, I want a lot of things. Folks here have given you a lot of information and things to try. Don't get hung up on the ping number.

Try a few suggestions and see where that gets you. Pooman UK and M1GU31 - heap good medicine

Can't do much unless you get a better isp. 15-25ping is like almost no difference,it's like less then a ms difference. Here test your DNS settings with namebench Downloads - namebench - Open-source DNS Benchmark Utility - Google Project Hosting Download the one for windows.
Do a network connection test on Speedtest.net - The Global Broadband Speed Test then when done note it down
Then run namebench and click start benchmark and when the test is over is should bring up a internet page showing you the best dns severs for your connection.

Open Control Panel > Click Network and Internet > Network and Sharing Center > Click Change Adapter Settings,right click local area connection,select Internet protocol version 4 then select properties then tick use the following DNS severs addresses

Then enter the dns best chosen for you that name bench gave you exactly for primary and secondary then press ok and reboot. Remember do the the test with namebench first then enter these numbers for your dns were I told you .
Select the connection for which you want to configure
Then redo the test at Speedtest.net - The Global Broadband Speed Test and you may or may not see a difference, it may even be the same or a tiny bit more speed.


And when the namebench test will end?
