all day today i have been doing everything i can to speed up my network or find issues causing bad ping.
now i live directly across the street from my cabinet i can see it from my seat during the day. now my brother lives about 5 minutes away from me and his cabinet is about a block away from his house yet on speedtest.net he gets around 20-25ms ping yet im stuck with around 45-50 his house is much older than mine so im kinda stuck on what could be causing such a bad ping i have had the old alarm removed but barely made a change 2-4ms of ping at best. we both have unlimited vdsl with phone line through orcon and have our network setup almost identically. both mine and my brothers PCs are wired just to make sure the tests were consistent
the only thing that seems odd to me is the spike in ping against my own modem which i know should not be that high
any help would be greatly appreciated as i dont want to ring orcon with a problem if i can resolve it myself
