Extremely high ping on just one computer
So, something very weird is happening to me...here are the facts:
  • Before I moved to this place, my internet connection was running perfectly.
  • Changed residence and ISP, internet is very-very slow when loading pages, but download speed is as expected ( 1 MB/sec on a 10 Mbps bandwidth).
  • Finally managed to trick my pc into loading speedtest.net by using USB tethering, and my ping using my ISP's connection turned up to be 10023 ms, download speed around 8 Mbps and upload speed at 0.07 Mbps. These results are consistent throughout multiple tests on multiple servers. Also, testing my speed using USB tethering showed normal results.
  • Now, the funny part is that I'm the only one in this house experiencing these problems, the rest can firstly open speedtest.net and have a ping of ~20-30 ms.
  • I've also tried using LAN instead of wireless, but with no change.
Here's the result of ipconfig /all:

Also, by using inSSIDer, I can see that there are no other wireless networks broadcasting on the same channels as my router is using.
Any ideas/solutions are highly welcome as I have absolutely no idea why this is happening..

What results do you get with an ethernet connection?

Somewhat worse, actually: ping 10034 ms, download 5 Mbps, upload 0.04 Mbps

Another funny thing, I've just installed Ubuntu and pages load significantly faster...I'll come back with a speedtest result from Ubuntu.

Yes, as expected, Speedtest run from Ubuntu gives following: ping: 24 ms, download 7.8 Mbps, upload 0.63 Mbps....

I've also run a malware remover on Windows which didn't find much and I've uninstalled all the softwares that I don't use (or most of them anyway). No change after cleaning and restarting....

TCP/IP stack repair options for use with Vista or 7.

Start - All Programs - Accessories and right click on Command Prompt, select "Run as Administrator" to open a command prompt.

Reset WINSOCK entries to installation defaults: netsh winsock reset catalog

Reset IPv4 TCP/IP stack to installation defaults. netsh int ipv4 reset reset.log

Reset IPv6 TCP/IP stack to installation defaults. netsh int ipv6 reset reset.log

Reboot the machine.

Did that, no change...

One more potentially helpful information: I've run Windows in safe mode and I didn't experience any problems, all the websites were loading and speedtest results were the same as under Ubuntu.

Yes, that's definitely helpful. Finding the guilty task or service can be time consuming. Maybe the following will help.

The following services have each given at least one person networking problems in Vista.

SSTP-service (secure tunneling protocol) caused one person's Microsoft network products to go slow: http://forums.techguy.org/networking...ml#post5911440

Remote Access Auto Connection Manager caused my Firefox to load pages slowly: http://forums.techguy.org/windows-vi...ad-slowly.html


In Windows 7 Remote Access Connection Manager has (very strangely) caused my Firefox to slow.

Ok...almost solved...but don't ask me how...
I started deactivating all the non-MS services to no effect, than I disabled everything hoping that I can turn them back on one by one and find out which one caused the distress. I didn't manage to find the right combination to actually be able to access wireless capabilities so out of frustration I turned everything back on and restarted...and now everything works just peachy...
I'll give it a day or so to see if the problem reoccurs, but I'm keeping my fingers crossed

Thank you very much for your help!

Edit: ping is still rather high: ~500 ms

Ok, scratch that, back to hunting down the rogue service...

For the record, SSTP service was not running when I started shutting them down and I couldn't find the Remote Access Auto Connection Manager.
Also, I don't only have this problem with Firefox, but with all the other browsers and Yahoo Messenger also fails to connect...

I'll try to hunt down the rogue service. If you or anyone else has any other ideas or ideas about how I can be more efficient in my hunt, feel free!

It's probably more likely a task. Services causing a problem is unusual.

Ok, this might be a noob question, but I wanna make sure I'm doing it right...
My plan of attack is running msconfig and disabling everything that is not Miscrosoft in the services tab, if that doesn't work, I'll continue disabling stuff untill I'll either fix the problem or don't have any service for connecting to the internet.
Is there a different way?

For services I no longer use msconfig. Instead I use (Control Panel - Administrative Tools -) Services. After noting which run in Safe Mode witk Networking I stop several of the others at a time.

Ok, this is really weird: Checking to see if my keyboard shortcuts are working, I put my computer to sleep, after waking it up, the internet was quasi-working (ping: ~280 ms). So I've made a log using hijack this.
Then I've made a log in safe mode (perfect internet) and then I've restarted my PC and ran it normal mode (internet was bad again) and made another log.

Comparing these files I found:
- No difference between "quasi-running" and "bad" internet;
- Only difference between safe-mode and "bad" internet were following processes:
C:\Program Files (x86)\NVIDIA Corporation\3D Vision\nvSCPAPISvr.exe
C:\Program Files (x86)\ASUS\ATK Package\ATK Hotkey\ASLDRSrv.exe

C:\Program Files (x86)\Intel\Intel(R) Management Engine Components\UNS\UNS.exe
C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\plugin-container.exe

And I've close each and every one of those processes with no effect on my internet connection...

I have a really similar problem but I was told that it might be malware etc and i checked with malwareBytes, bitDefender and other anti virus programs.
But I'm still having this issue, I have one other computer in the same network which shows no problems related to this.
I even tried to boot this computer in safe mode and the problem goes away.
I've suspicious that it might be a web traffic filtering virus that somehow delays my internet connection (only http or https) because in some games I play the ping is like 50 ms but in http traffic ping goes like 1900 ms which is nuts.
My internet is supposed to be 4 mbps but in this computer i only get 2 mbps downloaod and 0.10 uploaod which is crazy considering my other computer connected to the same modem gets 0.60 mbps upload.
By the way this started about a month or two ago.


I already tried to discard microsoft or third party services by disabling startup programs and services with msconfig utility, no luck so far.

Ok, here's how it worked for me: I disabled all the non-MS services and all the startup programs, after a restart, my internet was working well. I started reenabling services that I thought shouldn't have any influence or that I already cleared (e.g. my AV software). My problem reoccured..so I tracked it down to my AV-software, which was causing all the distress. Quick uninstall and problem solved (for me)

Thanks for your help and good luck!
