[ALL] why has my ping gone up on speed test sites?

for several months now my ping has been going up and up

i used to get pings on speedtest.net of about 20ms to 25ms but now over the past few months it has climbed up to about 45ms to 50ms

while i not this is not a huge drastic change it is noticeable when gaming and just makes you wonder why?

and it is not just me all the computers in my home have the same issue

so what i am wondering why out of the blue this would happen i have 3 computers all desktops and all hard wired to the router

and even bypassing the router i get the same ping times so idk

just wondering if anyone else has this problem as well

Probably not a valid comparison since I'm in Oklahoma, but I get:



And on Cox's website I get:

Mon May 21 4:29 PM
Yes
33 Mbps
8 Mbps
21 millisec
(my IP)
Oklahoma City

This is with the Arris EMTA modem.. still Docsis 2.0.

I'd start doing Tracert's to various places.. it could be on Cox's local Gateway (node slowly getting over-loaded?) or some router/hop between you and the server. The problem spot is usually the one where the ping time jumps up and that time is carried over to the destination.

What "router" do you have? Have you tried connecting directly to the modem? Have you tried power cycling the "router" ? Sometimes buggy firmware in the "routers" can add latency and cause problems. If power cycling the "router" lowers the latency, I would check for firmware updates or replace the device with a newer model.
