How can I improve my ping?
Sometimes I play online games on maltese servers but compared to others,maltese like me and even the same isp I suffer a high ping over 100 while others are mostly under 50. My browsing is ok and my download is very good too ,so what is the cause of such high ping and how can I improve it? In an online connection test speed the result was that everything was ok except my upload which was very weak.Could this be the problem?
My OS is WinXP and Iím on ADSL
The advertised speed from them is 4096K unlimited
My isp is global.net.mt

MTU = 1492
MTU is optimized for PPoE DSL broadband. If not, consider raising MTU to 1500 for optimal throughput.

MSS is optimized for PPPoE DSL broadband. If not, consider raising your MTU value.
Default TCP Receive Window (RWIN) = 257004
RWIN Scaling (RFC1323) = 2 bits (scale factor of 4)

RWIN is a multiple of MSS
Other RWIN values that might work well with your current MTU/MSS:
