Your computer has nothing to do with your ping. Your network or Internet Service Provider is what is responsible for your ping. Do the following and post the results...

Goto the Command Prompt and type...

tracert yahoo.com > pingresult.txt

then open the pingresult.txt and paste the results. With this we can determine which node in your network is slowing you down.

P.S. can you do this too...

ping -n 10 yahoo.com >> pingresult.txt

so that we can see if you are getting any packet loss.

One last thing that will decrease you ping result is a virus like spy ware which is robbing some of your band width to transmit information. Can you do a netstat so we can see if there are apps that have ports open on your computer that should not...

netstat -b > portsopen.txt

If you are running Vista or 7 then you will need to run the command prompt as administrator to run this command.
