Been having some issues with my moms PC, she keeps complaining about how slow her connection is, had her run speed test and 14.99 download and 1.01 upload which is right on par for her service. What I noticed was her ping time was 114ms, I checked with the PC on the other end of the house and it has the same up and down speeds but only a ping of 14ms. I have ran the test a few times and got the same results all with in a few ms of each other. This was ran with speedtest.net all the machines are wired with Cat5e and the machine with the lowest ping time is the newest machine, (specs listed in my profile), hers is a Core2Duo, 4GB of ram, Win7 (install is about 14 months old), there is more cable to my machine about 50' worth, hers is about 7 feet. My machine runs through a Netgear switch to a netgear router WNDR3700, hers is wired directly to the router.
Virus and spyware checks come up clean.... I'm at a loss as to what could be causing this, unless its a bad cable, I have dig around and see if I have another ethernet cable laying around.
