    Okay guys my router gives me 14ms pings ...


    ... which is great, it does that on my old router too (but my other one STAYS like that). However after a few minutes the pings seem to hop up to 30ms and stay like that, if I reboot (ie, unplug ac and reconnect) it's back at 14ms and then suddendly hits 30ms after a minute or two.

    My router is a 'WAG354G wireless ADSL gateway for notebooks' I am connected via an ethernet cable. My ISP is Nildram, I have 8mbps.

    I really don't want to update the firmware -- that killed my old one. :(

    run a tracert prior to and after your 5 minute threshold. It may not be your router at all and be some other upstream device that is causing the extra delay.

    is there much traffic on the wan connection even when you are doing nothing on your PC? you may have some sort of trojan that is starting up once you net connection is stable.

    try running hijackthis then post the find on the log analyzer page or here.

    First of all, thanks for repling.

    Whenever I do a tractrt anything past my router box is blocked ie, I get 1 hop then it's all blocked till the desternation host.

    I also noticed you are runing utorrent. please disable this and run the ping again. torrentz will affect your ping.

    you analyzed report is here:

    you have many bandwidth intensive services running as well. all will affect your ping.

    My utorrent was inactive ie, torrents were not transfairing but for the sake of it, I'll reping.

    Should I get rid of (all of them?) I am not too sure what and why there are here for?

    Would it help if I showed my routers cfg?

    It can still effect the ping / traffic though I would say.

    And get rid of those entries [with the IP address] if u dont know what they are / didnt add them yourself etc.

    Something else just came to mind, if you think the router itself my be causing and issue, ping your internal ip then ping from the inside acrossed it to your external ip. This way you get the processing of the router both ways before the traffic gets back to you. You should get a slight increase from the lan to the wan ip but nothing to significant if the router is functioning properly.

    Even if I don't use torrents or any other p2p it'll still happen. I have deleted them entries, no diff.

    Also I tried pinging my external ip from inside just got <1ms all the way. Could a firmware update fix it? if so, where would I find them?
