Windows 7: High Ping Issues in Games

High Ping Issues in Games

Hi, I just went from using Windows XP Pro x64 to Windows 7 x64.

Any FPS game I played on XP I would get a constant ping of 10-25 in any Chicago based server. After going over to Windows 7, any Chicago server I join I get over 100 ping...and I don't know what is wrong. I've done the speed test, and I'll post three ping traces to three Chicago servers, I'm running off a cable modem, with no router, until as of today when I installed 7, I never had any ping issues before. It also seems like my ping issues only coincide with only games I play. My ping on Ventrilo, anything else are normal.

take a look at your IP config, I had a little ping issues on a few games my self. I disabled IPv6 and it helped a little, maybe it was the IPv6 maybe I got lucky who knows. you will note that if you do an IP config you will see several tunnel adapters. also check your firewall, that is if you have one. I started using Kaspersky Internet Security and my pings went way high even with permissions granted. if I turn off the firewall the ping drops, Im guessing its because the FW isnt quite made for Windows 7 yet.

im not sure if any of that will help or if you have tried them. I hope it was a little help

I've just accepted the fact that seven has either bad networking code or maybe has something to do with CPU usage during the games. Either way I have not found a way to fix it and as i type this im going BACK to XP.

Someone, be it a computer savvy person or microsoft, needs to fix this or half of the gamers are going to boycott seven.

My fix from the thread "Windows 7 High Ping Fix" only worked for 3-4 reboots and has not worked since then.
