      Think the quickest was 80ms and the slowest about 866ms.
      that is pretty terrible, try it again from a wired connection and make sure nothing is downloading/uploading.

      Yeah forgot i was downloading. It is a wired connection.
      The top speed i have ever got via speedtest.net is about 3.2MB speed, all pings at least 200ms.

      I don't trust that site, especially for pings. I stick to the old dos prompt ultility and ping something in the country like bbc or jolt.

      That is typical (although still unacceptable to many) of someone on interleave, see the interleave V fastpath threads about it.

      To check for yourself. PLEASE READ FIRST: How to obtain and post router stats

      Get the stats and look for Channel: Interleave or Channel: Fast in the first 5 lines
