Hi, The last few days the pings on my home network are really high and I am having trouble to track down the issues.

I was recommended to get Wireshark, so installed and taken a log on when I did a ping from the DOS command prompt. My PC is and I was pinging which is my home ADSL router.

Here is the result from the command prompt ping

Pinging with 32 bytes of data:
Reply from bytes=32 time=108ms TTL=64
Reply from bytes=32 time=65ms TTL=64
Reply from bytes=32 time=23ms TTL=64
Reply from bytes=32 time=139ms TTL=64

Even outbound onto the internet pings are arround 200ms and more.

My wireshark log is link text The file link expires 1 week from now (2020-08-01 17:46:46 UTC) Any help would be great

Do any of the other devices on the subnet (,,, respond to a ping from the PC? If so, are the times lower?

Is your PC connected to the router via a wired or wireless connection?

Could it be a loop or do you have multiple connections to your router/LAN? Because the source and destination mac address of your Sky router/ is slightly different.

Are you using a WiFi repeater? The trace shows BPDU packets indicating that your router is the root bridge. It looks like there is an intermediate device in the network between your workstation and the router.

Do you have some antivirus software that comes with an on-board firewall? If yes, please try to use the Windows firewall instead (assuming you are using Windows)

I finally worked out what it was. It was my SKY TV Q box causing the issue. It would appear the SKY TV Q box did an upgrade 3 days earlier. I switched off the SKY TV Q box and the pings running on my PC continsously immediately went back to normal. I then turn the SKY TV Q box back on and the pings stayed the same at the normal 2ms on the LAN Thanks Eddi and others.
