Why is my ping so high?

Specs: XP Home SP2, Athlon XP 3200/1gb

I have broadband but on every game I go on I get ridiculously high ping, even on local servers. Does anyone know why as it's really pissing me off. Thanks

high ping is not just due to the bad internet connection. video lag, sound lag, virus, spyware, worms, or so on, could cause the high ping. not enough Ram could cause the problem too.

I don't get lag on CS:S, but I get stuttering all the time and it's really annoying. I get lag on BF1942 and Unreal 2004 and sometimes get a connection error. I dunno what's up with my connection, it was fine on my old computer.

It usually just says "connection error" or something along those lines, it differs depending on what game it is.

Run some tests and see what's going on.

Can you get another computer plugged in and run the same tests? Trying to figure out if it's your computer or your ISP.
