No idea

I also got problems with two games i play (BF2 and Cod WaW) in both games my ping is not how it used to be when i had XP.

In BF2 my ping is jumping from 160 to 230 and then back, its not stable. I used to play with 160 when i had XP, its a Texas server whats understandable if im from Europe. lol

In Cod WaW i check for servers and in case i see one with 40, after getting in i have 80 or 90, so allways the duble. And im lagging.

It drives me nutz, but i know this can be fixed somehow...

Windows 7 high ping times resolved

I had what I think was exactly the same issue. When uploading content over HTTP, using either a web browser to YouTube or Dropbox client to Dropbox's Amazon EC2 servers, I experienced:

long ping times (1500-3000ms)
packet loss
massive corresponding net traffic usage (1MB file took about 100MB to upload)

I traced the problem to a security feature on ESET's NOD32 v4.0.467.0 for Windows 7. I can confirm that unchecking "Enable HTTP checking" in "Advanced Setup -> Web access protection -> HTTP, HTTPS" pretty much sorts the problem out. I've blogged about it here:

Update your Router Firmware

Hi all,

I never normally post but this issue took me a good 4 hours to resolve....

I was on a solid 50Mbp line on installed windows 7 (previously Vista) and went down to 6Mbp and really laggy ping spikes.

Everyone told me it was the isp but from reading this post I knew it was windows 7 and refused to give up.

Tried all of the above fixes from cmd commands / audio fixes / Graphical Fixes / antivirus fixes / bandwith reservation.. / disabling IPV6 and so on.....

All had a slight but mimimal effect but did not fix it.

The last thing I tried was updating my routers Firmware and it fixed the issue.

Im no tech expert but can safley say that there is a diffrence in the windows 7 internet code / settings.

For info router was a NetGear Wireless N Router

So as a first priority before installing windows 7

a) make sure you download your modem / router drivers
b) update your router settings.

Hope this helps.

Or your router just had a bug in its implementation of standard network protocols in use.

No idea

I found out what can cause my unstable ping in all games using win7. My old main board (MSI K9N Neo4).

So long story short, i went back to XP and im not happy. I cant wait to buy a new main board, CPU and RAM so i will install my Win7 again. Now i have a single core AMD Athlon 64 3200+ CPU. My current main board dont has a driver for Win7 and as my network card is integrated in it i cant have an up dated driver for that. That causes lag and all.

What Worked for Me

I tried the solutions mentioned but I still had high pings (>200ms, with lots of jitter). What worked for me was changing the Power Saving Mode for the WiFi adapter (Control Panel > Power Options > Change plan settings > Change advanced power settings > Wireless Adapter Settings > Power Saving Mode). Initially mine was set for "Maximum Power Saving". This works by intermittently putting the Wireless Adapter in a low power state. In order for this to work properly it has to coordinate with access point (router) but not all routers have this capability. After changing the Power Saving Mode to anything else, my pings went to 60ms, with no jitter.
