At my home I was switching rooms with my sister, so in the mean time with painting and everything going on i setup my current pc in my living room. I couldn't run a ethernet cable straight thru so i just hooked a cross-over cable into my laptop. (windows 2000 pentium 3 600mhz and 300mb of ram) now i have a belkin wireless g card and a linksys wrt54g router with most current firmware. I figured that my ping would be really high since i thought i had added latency but in battlefield 2 my ping was 40 on a server. then after i finished moving the rooms i directly connected my tower pc to the wrt54g and now my ping is 125 on the same server with nothing else added , no external applications or anything like that. whats going on here?
