    Question High ping times through Cable w/ 2 comps.

    I encounter high ping times when I have 2 computers playing an internet game (unreal Tournament) via my router to cable connection. With 1 computer it runs fine with low ping times <100. But as soon as I get the 2nd computer playing, pings go to
    300-500. Note: it does not matter which comp. connects first.

    To throw even more wierdness in the issue... On the same server, the problem may or may not occur...i.e. 2 comps playing may have high ping times....then later the 2 comps play with low pings 90-130.

    Environment

    AT&T cable modem service
    Linsys 4 port router/switch
    pc 1: p3 800, win2000
    pc 2: athlon 1.2, dual boot (win2000 and win 98)

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!!!!

    Probably the overhead for determining which pc on your LAN requested the packets that are flying inbound. To be honest, I am very surprised that it works at all. You both have the same public ip, I assume. That would make the translation take that much longer.
