Windows 7: Ping way too high

Ping way too high

Right now I'm running 7201 x86 and I have Fios 20 Mb download and 5 Mb upload. About a week ago, the ping started going high and averages around 500ms. Usually, it's in the teens, between 13-20ms. I don't play games online or anything that would cause the problem.

Any way to fix the issue?

Thanks in advance

From the elevated command prompt, type

tracert www . websitehere . com

Try it with different sites. Find out which node is causing the latency and who owns it. I.E. Is it Verizon?

It tells you in milliseconds, when running the command. Sure, post 2 or 3 if ya want.

this is what i got, and i don't really understand the results, but looking at the time, it doesn't seem like there's any problem

but when i do speedtest, the ping is always too high as seen on my 1st post pic

That looks good. I wouldn't worry so much what the speed test says. Especially since pings don't mean much unless you're a gamer or there's a huge delay in getting to sites etc...

yeah, i understand what you are saying

the issue i'm having is that this just started about a week ago, prior to that everything was fine

also, now when i want to go to certain sites, it takes a little longer than usual, but certainly not a big issue...just want things to run smoothly

it seems to be working properly now

it appears that when i was messing around with firefox about:config, that was the issue and now that i reinstalled firefox, it appears to be working fine

thanks for all your help and i repped Dixon Butz, but couldn't rep torrentg as i already repped you before

seems like the issue is only with chrome as firefox works fine

Mods, you can close this thread as the issue is solved
