Pings higher than usual

    Hey guys,

    I upgraded to the HyperWRT Thibor 15C firmware a while ago, and now when I play Counter-Strike, my pings are unusually higher than it used to be with stock firmware. My pings used to be able to go as low at 15-10ms... now the lowest it goes is around 50ms. Does this have anything to do with port forwarding or QoS? I have all my steam ports forwarded so I have no idea why my pings are higher.

    P.S. What is WMM support in the QoS section of the firmware? I am on a wireless connection btw.

    then drop back to stock firmware and see if your pings return to the 10ms range

    No they don't anymore :S I used to use a Dlink Di-614+ prior to this Linksys WRT54GS V.4 and the pings were perfect. Anything I can do?

    if it's not the firmware, it's either the router, the line or the server you are connected to. the further away the server is, the higher the pings will be

    WMM (Wi-Fi Multimedia) is QoS over wireless, it prioritises different types of media format over a Wireless connection. try disabling this and see if it helps.

    Yep, i have WMM and QoS disabled! Also, my pings used to be fine... it shouldn't be anything wrong with my line... and shouldn't the router be fine?

    You may have already done these things, but whenever I upgrade or have changed firmwares, I of course clear nvram first, apply all my settings and reboot the router, reboot the PC's and reboot the cable modem or dsl modem. Rebooting the cable modem after a firmware upgrade has done the trick in my case.

    Thibor15c on a GSv2 here. I just tried playing CS on my local ISP's hosted server, and my ping was 14. It must be your router, or your ISP.

    Hmmm, okay. Are there any settings I could change to optimize network performance?
