    I am having a weird issue with my network. I have a Linksys wireless N router with two MBP's and a Power Book G4. On one of the MPB the ping time to the router is terrible and inconsistent with times ranging from 5ms to over 1000ms and it is constantly fluctuating.

    Both other computers have a steady ping tim of around 10ms.... This is with all computers in the same location.

    I have no clue what is going on and cant figure out why it started happening about a day or so ago. :wtc:

    Thanks

    Do both the MBPs support 802.11n? The other issue I can see is that the router will be stepped down to 802.11g because of the G4 on the network (router steps down to the fastest supported speed by all machines on the network). Try manually setting the speed of the router to 802.11g and see what happens with the ping times. Maybe it's causing some kinda conflict.
