EXTREMELY HIGH PING please help?
I have had wireless internet for a while and it has always worked fine. I just recently bought a Netgear wireless-N router.

Also, i bought a TP-Link Draft N wireless card for my computer. Now for like the two weeks or so it worked perfect. Now im having major problems, mainly concerning my ping.

Well first of all, my network always says its "identifying" 24/7 and i don't know why. My internet itself works perfect, however whenever i play ANY online game, my ping skyrockets to 900-1200 and up on any server, even if the server is hosted in the same state.

Now the only games i have tried its Battlefield:2 and Counter-strike: Source and they both do the same thing.

I have reset my router to default settings, made new networks, gotten new drivers and nothing works. When i look at my internet speed, its always at 300.0 Mbps and never changes at all, which is also wrong because my router can only go up to like 240 Mbps or something in that range.

My wireless card is running at 2.4 Ghz.

If you have any idea how to solve thisw problem, please tell me!
Thanks!

SPECS:

Xion full tower case
200G hard drive 7000 RPM
2G ram
Nvidia G-force 8600 GT
BIOSTAR ATX motherboard
400 WATT power supply
TP-LINK Draft N wireless card
Sorry for the typos, didn't spell check

^.^

Running a game on a wireless lan isnt the greatest way in the first place. Try a hardwired connection. Packet loss between your router and pc is going to be higher to begin with when on wireless.

Run a tracert to identify where the latency is spiking. Once we know that information we can answer more accurately. Just in case you don't know how (I bet you do though) open the console and type:

tracert google.com

Where google.com should ideally be replaced by the ip of the server your games run on.

You may also try to see if packet loss is the culprit. In the console type:

ping -l 1472 -n 100 google.com

Where -l is a lowercase L and -n is lowercase N. 1472 is just the packet size, and 100 stands for 100 pings before results. Then let us know the results of each.
