    Question How to decrease latency with Satellite (Xplornet) Internet?

    I am in the country working and I have noticed that the Satellite Internet is extremely slow. It works for FB and Youtube, but not for gaming (which I average 600-1,200 Ping). Below is the information about my connection speed and type: says the following: min: 614 ms avg: 699.6 ms...

    Question High ping while trying to play games

    Hello, I've recently been having some trouble with high ping while trying to play games. Whenever I join a game server (ex. quick play in overwatch or siege) I usually get kicked due to connection issues, and if I am in a game, I have unplayable ping/lag (over 100ms). I don't think the issue is...

    Question High ping when Pixel 3 connects to Wi-Fi.

    When I am using my PC normally, the ping on my network stays at a steady 45-50, however, once my sister's pixel 3 connects to the wifi, I suddenly get packet loss and 3000 plus ping. I use a Galaxy S6 myself and don't encounter this once it connects and downloading files on said Galaxy or my...

    Question Why am I getting a higher ping on my Ethernet connection than my wireless connection?

    In the past few weeks, I have been getting worse ping. On Ethernet, my ping usually rests at 50-60 ping but sometimes might go up to 100-500 ping which is obviously frustrating. A month ago, I was getting 10-30 ping consistently with ethernet. Since my connection has gotten a lot worse, I tried...

    Question Very slow internet on one PC, but all other devices are fine

    Context: I went to go eat dinner for about 30 minutes. My PC was doing nothing in the meantime. Just the regular Chrome browsers open. When I come back, my internet is very slow. Download speeds barely break 3Mbps, when I usually average 40-50Mbps. My ping is consistently ~150. However, all...

    [SOLVED] Can a really bad Download/Upload speed affect latency (ping) ?

    What i've understood is that latency is the time it takes for a signal to travel from point A to point B and to come back from point B to point A. Download/Upload speed would be the amount of data that is Received or Sent in 1 "trip", so, in theory, they should be unrelated. My question is...

    Question Ping spikes every 3-10 minutes

    So I keep getting lag spikes roughly every 3 - 10 minutes (never consistent as far as I can tell.) I believe it happens on Netflix/Youtube/etc. as well. My ping will be running smoothly at around 30ms and then spike to 300-600 for about 5 seconds and drop back down to normal. Doesn't disconnect...

    Question HS70 Dongle connected to USB Hub?

    Hello, will this make the headset connection slower to the computer? Like a delay? So far, I haven't experienced any latency, but I'm just asking just incase.

    Question Ryzen 7 2700x RAM Speed

    I'm building a new PC, and the CPU I'm choosing is, well, I think it's kinda obvious. What I do want to know though is what is the best/maximum speed for my RAM with this CPU? I'm going with DDR4 16GB, but I don't know how many mhz. Based on the NewEgg page for the CPU, it says it supports DDR4...

    [SOLVED] What does "PING" refere in games?

    I know that ping means latensy (ms) So my latency from my pc to the game server is ~15ms. But if i open the setting for example my opponents or teammates profile, their ping is ~30-40. Does it mean that the ping referes to their latency to the server? Or their latensy to my pc? So if my...

    Question Awful speeds and ISP giving me no help

    My main question is: Why is my router getting 19Mb but not outputting anywhere near that even with a direct Ethernet connection? So I’ve moved into my house last September (2018) and got a deal with EE. I live in a pretty remote area of SW U.K. so I know I was never going to get the speeds I...

    Question What is the latency of RAM (DIMM) and PCIe?

    What I want to know is approximately the amount of latency induced by PCIe and by RAM? I want the latency from the CPU to the DIMM slot and to the PCIe slot (so no round-trip latency).

    Question How much can cell phone booster help with 4g hub/router ?

    HI I live in the woods in a trailer. I can get one fix network with a dish in a tree. But the latency numbers most likely will not get greater than 65ms. A cell phone company cheeked my location and I get 77ms average. What's the odds a cell phone booster give me 31-60ms ?

    [SOLVED] Are there any PCIe/M.2 to RAM (DIMM) adapter out there?

    I don't know of any PCIe or M.2 to RAM (DIMM) adapters, so I would like to know if anybody here knows of such a thing. I am talking about PCIe/M.2 to DIMM adapters, not the DIMM to PCIe adapters that allow RAM to work over the PCIe bus (inherently at a slower rate/higher latency). Also, I am...

    [SOLVED] Can you use a male to male DIMM riser as a highspeed interconnect between computers in a cluster?

    Can you use a male to male DIMM riser as a high speed interconnect between computers in a cluster? You could get the lower latency than PCIe and a decent amount of bandwidth (according to kanewolf, latency is WAY more important than bandwidth). So would that work?
