Thread: Ping times

  1. #1

    Post Ping times

    Before I formatted, my ping times on a local server I used to go on (to play half-life counter-strike) used to be 30, but now it's 60! I know they haven't changed aything because my friend that used to go on there, and he hasn't formatted his HD, still pings the same. Is there something I can do to reduce my ping times or is there something I didn't/did to to raise my ping.

    Athlon 700
    128 MB Ram
    3Com cable modem/Road Runner
    TCP options string = 020405b4010303030101080a000000000000000001010402

    MTU = 1500
    MTU is fully optimized for broadband.

    MSS = 1460
    Maximum useful data in each packet = 1448, which is less than MSS because of Timestamps, or other TCP/IP options used.

    Default Receive Window (RWIN) = 373360
    RWIN Scaling (RFC1323) = 3 bits
    Unscaled Receive Window = 46670
    For optimum performance, consider changing RWIN to a multiple of MSS.
    Other values for RWIN that might work well with your current MTU/MSS:
    513920 (MSS x 44 * scale factor of 8)
    256960 (MSS x 44 * scale factor of 4)
    128480 (MSS x 44 * scale factor of 2)
    64240 (MSS x 44)

    bandwidth * delay product:
    Your RcvWindow limits you to: 14934.4 kbps (1866.8 KBytes/s) @ 200ms
    Your RcvWindow limits you to: 5973.76 kbps (746.72 KBytes/s) @ 500ms

    MTU Discovery (RFC1191) = ON

    Time to live left = 19 hops
    TTL value is ok.

    Timestamps (RFC1323) = ON
    Note: Timestamps add 12 bytes to the TCP header of each packet, reducing the space available for useful data.

    Selective Acknowledgements (RFC2018) = ON

    IP type of service field (RFC1349)= 00000000

    Go to and take tweak test, it will tell you what your pings are, turn off firewalls or no pings, read what it says about pings and games

    Any other suggestions?

    Well you may go to as they have ping tester there and other tests, maybe they have fix I don't know

    TRy changing your rwin to one that is suggested and Change your Tcp1323Opts to 1 instead of three. This may help.
    Have A Nice Day!!!!!!!!!

    To bad games don't use TCP1323Opts or Recieve Windows their UDP which is a whole other game folks.
