Default Ping high

Hello. I am a gamer. Usually, when i play, my ping is about 40-50. Now on that same server that i play on, i ping from 100-400. I have called my ISP and said that their connections are fine. What is causing my ping to be so high?

It could be a server issue (maybe admin is dling stuff? hehe). If not, make sure you dont do any downloading/uploading during games. It's unlikely but still probable that there is someone accessing your computer and copying your files (trojan maybe).

You can try resetting your cable/dsl/etc. modem and your router.

Check that ur firewall hasnt been changed so that the games you r playing r selected as exceptions.
Hope that helps.
