Windows 7: Incredibly High Ping

Incredibly High Ping

Hi, I just bought a brand new sony laptop with windows 7.

- My ping (to a certain ventrilo server) should be in the 30-40 range.
- It is currently 800+


I went to cmd and pinged google.com and other sites 20 + times, and the majority of the results were 700+ms. This is NOT normal, and I believe it is being caused by windows 7.

My download speeds are terrible as well.


- I have read everything thread I could find on this, and I have tried many things posted on this forum to fix it. I tried something in regedit and another command in the command prompt. Both fixed it temporarily, but the problem came back shortly after.

I am once again pinging abnormally high, and I do not know what to do.

Any help is appreciated

I am currently hooked up to my router, and I am right next to it.

Gah this is frustrating. The laptop is amazing, but I can't exactly do anything with 1000 ping. Ugh.

Ok. I just like, played around in network settings (dont even know what the heck I did), and my ping is normal right now. I really don't get this problem.

Since I'm considering going back to XP, I'll ask an unrelated questino to my internet issue. I made a recovery disk when I got the computer--> If I reformatted and put XP on, and I ever wanted to go back to Windows 7, can I use that disc to install?

If it helps, I had this happen lately. I had to change the channel and TX power on my router. (Using DD-WRT firmware) It cleared it up and I'm back to good speed and ping.

I'm not an expert, but someone will probably suggest this. It easy and worth a try.

Good luck.
