1.[COLOR=Blue]Does not help very much, but a bit maybe... 2.Is complete nonsense, cause Ping is the time the server takes to answer to a request from your computer. (It is done by sending very small data packages, so called bits).

Factors for Ping are: -Physical Distance between your PC and the server. -How much of your Connections Upload Capacity is in use, means if you download something at your maximum speed usually Ping will go up alot. The effect is worst if you download via Filesharing networks, where you upload the file while you sent it. -DSL is said to be relativly independent on current global internet activity, but yet a slight increase of ping can be noticed in "Rush hours".

Note: The current CPU usage of your PC or the server does not matter, as long as its not crashed ;). For example you will get the same ping from say HSLAN if you ping it while full or while empty.

The only way to significantly improve your ping (if your internet works correct), is to get "Fastpath", which only certain providers offer. It will reduce your Ping somehow, I assume by repeating the sent package flow (Since you can not accelerate the transfer of Ions in the wire, they always go with light speed), or by giving your signal a higher priority in the Providers Data Core center.

You act as if every FH nerd in these forums doesn't already know this. Besides, every one of us has a pretty sturdy rig each.

Be nice, everyone has to start somewhere. I got launched on a lucrative yet brain-damaging career of IT security consulting while getting an International Relations degree at Cal because my friend parked me at a workstation running Netrek (look it up) while I waited for him to finish his programming assignment so we could go drink beer. It then crashed, but he was too busy to help me. So I started knobdicking around with it.

I can't stand it when people refuse to help newbies or to point them in the right direction.

To be fair, I also hate newbies who refuse to RTFM or use google (the truth is out there) or to take some initative on trying to track down solutions to problems by themselves after they've been given a few pointers. Once you've tried and failed, THEN you can ask for help again.
