Default gateway ping high - Please help!

  • I have a cable modem router C7000-100NAS.

    I can't seem to figure out why when I ping the default gateway( I get high pings ranging from 8ms to 500 ms, this is NEVER below 2ms as it should be. I've even tried to connect using wired connection but still couldn't get something like as low as <4. I've tried disconnecting everything else, restarting/resetting the router.

    Does it have anything to do with the cable/router being two in one?

    This greatly effects my gaming ping as well as streaming to my Nvidia Shield.

    Ping from a computer on the LAN to pfSense will not be affected by the cable modem. What happens if you ping other devices? Ping from other devices to pfSense? Here, I typically get below 300 mS over 1 Gb Ethernet. WiFi will always be worse.

    What is that gateway in this context? The pfSense interface IP or something upstream?

    What does Status > Gateways show for the ping time.

    If you're interesting in minimising latency though you should not be using wifi.
