Sup guys, I have been having a problem with my ping for awhile now...

Router: WRT54G

Cable Modem: Arris Touchstone

The thing is, when ever I turn on WPA key I get a ping of 700 and it really pisses me off so I have to turn it off.

Then when ever I play a game I start lagging horribley and I find out its my ping so I have to restore my router to the defaults...

Its really pissing me off.

EDIDT*** OMg Even with my router restarted and nothing changed I get horrible latency imma try to restart router with comp off...

Also when ever I activate DMZ I get horrible ping too, but that only occurs after awhile.

Well, if you're not securing your router, then someone else may be using up your bandwidth, which would explain a high ping.

You're using WPA-PSK (sometimes referred to as WPA Personal), right?

How would you know if your ping is stable when your computer is turned off?

I fixed it, by upgradeing to AVG 7.1, and I did a full system scan and caught some Adaware from firefox... AVG Free might be free but you dont get some of the upgrades from AVG 7.1

Keep in mind that FireFox wasn't the source of the Adware.

It is spam .. he has no clue. Firefox is not loaded with any spyware. Avgfree gets all the updates that 7.1 does. In fact , they just came out with 7.5 if i remember correctly.
