Hi All,

I have very good bandwidth speed however the quality may not be as great. I have been running a test on on http://www.geeksquad...band-speed.aspx for the bandwidth quality and it says my speed is excellent, however the ping and jitter are only good. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to improve the jitter and ping? I just bought category 6 cables for my router and modem and adjusted the router settings under QOS but nothing seems to improve the jitter and ping. The last couple tests I took said my jitter was 10ms and 6ms, and my ping was 39ms and 36ms. I do not know what they should be but I am open to any suggestions on how to improve these scores.

Are you experiencing any problems with your network connectivity? Your numbers aren't terrible by any means.

Ping and jitter are measured by making multiple packet "volleys" between your PC and some remote website. Your home internet setup may affect these numbers, but you'll reach a point where the ping and jitter are happening from your modem to the test site and will be there regardless of what you change between your PC and the modem.
