If your response times are in excess of 1000 ms on a LAN then you definitely have issues. Please give me an idea of your network's physical and logical layout.
X number of devices on a single floor/2 floors/3 floors etc.
What kind of device manages your internet connection/DHCP/DNS etc.
What type of switches are you using (basic, layer 2, layer 3) and how are they connected (ie: daisy chained, connect back to core).
How many subnets/VLAN's?
Lastly, just to be sure, are these excessive ping times on the LAN, or to external resources?
It matters not how straight the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate;
I am the captain of my soul.
