I recently installed Windows 7 64-bit on my computer connected wirelessly through a Linksys WMP54GS(7 automaticly installed broadcom drivers), and the router with is a WRT160N, and I've been using it a lot. My downloads are over 1 mbps and my ping in online games is around 50 on good servers.

Just today I was messing around with ping in command prompt and as I pinged 192.168.1.1 (The router) which used to be under 1 ms. It now pings like this almost every time.

Pinging 192.168.1.1 with 32 bytes of data:
Reply from 192.168.1.1: bytes=32 time=5ms TTL=64
Reply from 192.168.1.1: bytes=32 time=16ms TTL=64
Reply from 192.168.1.1: bytes=32 time=16ms TTL=64
Reply from 192.168.1.1: bytes=32 time=16ms TTL=64

Every time I reping it goes from 5 ms to 16 ms 3 times in a row??
Google pings at around 80-100 and yahoo pings the same sometimes around the 50s? There isn't any lag in any of my games, or while browsing. I'm just wondering could there be a problem with the ping on this computer now? And are there any updated drivers for my wireless card for 64-bit?

Sorry my question is so long, and thanks in advance...

Offhand, I'd say you may have some wireless interference. Have you tried connecting with a wired connection and doing the same test? How about changing the wireless channel?

I've changed the wireless channels and frequencys to no avail, and on a wired connection it pings <1ms.

It's something odd ALMOST EVERYTIME I initiate a ping first its a low number than it goes to 16ms 3 times, usually...

I did a Win7 Update to the standard Broadcom drivers and that brought the 192.168.1.1 ping down to 1ms constantly, the thing is that the google ping is the same? Oh well it doesn't really bother me Im just curious as too if the router ping wasn't even showing right originally on my computer.

That's really odd, glad you found a solution.
