PostSubject: Ping faster with Faster Ping   Fri Apr 25, 2008 3:35 am

Faster Ping works by removing the acknowledgement delay from TCP packets. This delay happens inside the kernel's TCP stack, and is a necessity for a lot of functions that go on inside a TCP stack. The other modification Faster Ping does is to remove delay in sending small packets (think anything less than a dozen or so bytes). These changes, at least theoretically, should not impact system stability if the Windows kernel has proper TCP/IP stack implementation. Okay, end technical content.

Faster Ping does work to reduce the ping time seen in World of Warcraft and other MMORPGS. The technology behind it makes sense over all. However, there is a dangerous flip side: it will slow down your normal, every day web browsing. On my computer, I noticed a slow down of about 10% to 15% while browsing sites like WoW Insider and Google, and only a decrease of about 2% in my ping rate while playing WoW.
