      Exclamation Ping Times?

      hi everyone, i was just wondering what ping times you lot get on sky MAX?
      i get 27ms ping to openDNS, what do you all get? oh and could you ping openDNS using the sky router not the command prompt.

      208.67.222.222 is openDNS IP

      heres mine using the sky router to ping....

      PING 208.67.222.222 (208.67.222.222): 56 data bytes
      64 bytes from 208.67.222.222: icmp_seq=0 ttl=59 time=30.0 ms
      64 bytes from 208.67.222.222: icmp_seq=1 ttl=59 time=20.0 ms
      64 bytes from 208.67.222.222: icmp_seq=2 ttl=59 time=20.0 ms
      64 bytes from 208.67.222.222: icmp_seq=3 ttl=59 time=20.0 ms

      4 packets transmitted, 4 packets received, 0% packet loss
      round-trip min/avg/max = 20.0/22.5/30.0 ms

      but using the command prompt its 27ms

      Re: Ping Times?

      Pinging from the router cuts out the PC, so it will always be 1 or 2ms faster. Mine is 32 from the router and 33 from the PC.

      Anything more than 1ms difference from the PC probably means you are using wireless.

      Mine too, considering it is going all the way to San Francisco and back, that is pretty quick. The local OpenDNS servers are much quicker. If you ping opendns.com, that's where it goes, it does not go to the open servers which it does if you ping 208.67.222.222 .

      You are not pinging opendns.com or 208.69.38.150. You are pinging the local server.
