Windows 7: Incredibly High Ping

I would gladly stay with seven if I didn't have 700 ping spikes. I was just gaming, and I had consist 60 ping, and all of a sudden it jumped up to 400-600 steadily. Ugh. How do I update my firmware nate? I have a wireless-N Router. Should I hook up to my modem to see if I still experience any problems?

edit: My ping is now back to normal. It seems like the ping spikes are less often for some reason, but definitely still present. I've tried everything I've read on the forums as far as regedits go and nothin seems to work ;/

If I were to plug into my Modem and still receive the ping spike issue, could we rule the router problem out? The manufacturer is Linksys.

yes you could ,have you had a pc or laptop running on your modem/router before? i think for linksys the address will be http://192.168.0.1 you will have to provide an admin and user password it should be in your router manual

Firmware Version: v0.93.3 Jun. 1, 2006
I assume this should be updated. The thing is, I never had any problems with XP a few days ago using this firmware. Would such outdated firmware pose a large problem with 7 only?

is that the version written on the box/router or taken of the secure site for your router if so it needs updating as it most likely will upset win7

I got that version from the last tab in my router settings. I went to 192.168.1.1 and logged in, then went to the Status tab and saw that. So are you saying I should or shouldnt upgrade?

alright. how exactly should I upgrade it?

i went to the linksys site and i see version 1.1 and version 2.0 (2.0 has no download links) but 1.1 has a link to this:
Setup Wizard

  • 05/05/2006
    Download 1.41 MB
    (Setup Wizard)
Firmware

Do I download that, then go to 192.168.1.1, administrator tab, then firmware update, and select the file I dled? Then it jjust updates? I want to make sure I do nothing wrong.
