Windows 7: Background Latency Test

Background Latency Test

What is a good program to run in the background to gauge my wireless latency? While playing games, I have low ping (20-30 range) and when I run a SpeedTest I also have low ping and my connection speeds are where they should be. However, I suffer considerable and consistent lag spikes while gaming wirelessly. And yes I know it is always better to hardwire while gaming but I'm not playing online shooters or anything. I just need a relatively stable connection.

Hardwired my connection is fine. No spikes.

Hi all:

I downloaded Wireless Wizard and ran a latency test and have attached the results below. I have also included two results from SpeedTest.

You will notice large ping spikes periodically in both (up to 400 but with an average around 20-30).

Hoping someone can help remedy this. The latency spikes disappear when I hardware but it would be nice to be able to use the wireless I am paying upwards of $80 for.

I'm using an Arris DG860 wireless router.

Any help is appreciated.

latency test error on
Can someone do a speedtest using the server in New York, NY? I've been getting an latency error everytime. Other servers work fine and the one in New York worked before. It's the one that's nearest my house, so that's what I generally use.
