      Question High Ping Times?

      Evening all,

      I just wondered if anyone has had the same issue as myself - I'm not sure whether it's lasted all day or afternoon or whether I just logged in at an unlucky time.
      Basically, we've been out all day and i've come back, turned the PC on and noticed that the websites were loading rather slow - I rebooted the Sky Modem and my PC and thought that should clear it.

      It didn't - After about 10 minutes, seeing if it would calm down and speed up - I begun a ping test through CMD, it came up with the following results;

      (I've snipped it down quite alot, but left an amount to give you a good idea)

      I've cut the list but basically, after the last line - The highest returned ping after 20 minutes of pinging.. Was 42ms.

      I find it weird how it just dropped from the 1,000's to ~30ms within a single ping. Is this just a flash in the pan or do Sky perform updates on a Sunday or something?

      No other devices were connected at the time - Just my PC, connected through ethernet to the Modem then into the splitter - All within 3feet of each other.

      It's not a problem anymore... Just curious!

      Not sure, latency should only increase that much when uploading a file at the maximum speed your line can upload.

      Nothing to be concerned about. Probably just some software on your computer downloading updates of some sort (AntiVirus, AntiSpyware, Operating System, or other software).
