  5. Make sure that you are not uploading/downloading anything on your network. For example, im uploading a youtube video, my ping is 1276, and when its done, it'll go down to 70 or 80

    What you want to do is take bandwidth into account. Bandwidth is like a highway for data. The more people that use the bandwidth, the more traffic there is, and the slower your internet is. So for example, if you have 4 computers in your house and they're all connected to your network, they will suck up all of your bandwidth and render your connection slow with high ping. Obviously disconnecting these computers from the internet will free up some space.
    ------------------------------------
    Another thing you can do is reset your modem. A lot of data collects over time and clogs up your transfer rate. Resetting your modem can fix this.
    ------------------------------------
    Another big problem is location, if the server is hosted in North America, and you live in Europe, you're going to have high ping. The data takes much longer to transfer.
    ------------------------------------
    Other problems could be to outdated firmware, hardware, or faults in your cables. If you still have problems and you did NOT alter your hardware, then your provider will more than likely fix it for free.

  11. My ping is roughly 80 - 250. Unsure why it goes through that, most likely as I am in Britain. In English servers, the best ping I had was 7 - 13.

  15. In the server yesterday someone called you mean. xD, then you wouldn't talk for ages, which wasn't good. D:

    But I don't think you're mean. Just aggressive towards NinjaHippyFish's.

    I will help you.
    Ping varies wildly from game-to-game.
    I would suggest you to keep the following instructions while playing online game.
    1.Don't open any videos,stream and check if there any problem in your router.
    2.Make sure there's no browser .exe's still running in task manager
    3.Try to contact your internet service provider and get suitable data plan.
    4.Move closer to server
    I am sure,if you follow the rules,you will get chance to reduce your ping rate.Finally you can check whether it's your ping is reduced or not using WhoisXY.com
