High ping for home network internet access when someone is on remote access RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a network at home with Windows Home Server as the storage and web service.
    Normally any computer on the network have internet ping below 10ms but as soon as a user uses Windows Home Server Remote Access the ping for any computer on the home network trying to access internet goes up to 700-1000ms (or more).
    I cannot understand what might be the cause for this.

    All the machines are connected via cable or wireless to a Netgear FS105 that is connected to a broadband modem (ADSL).
    Could it be a switch issue since I use port forwarding in the switch for webpages and remote access aimed to the WHS?

    I hope someone recognises this problem and knows some things I can try.

    /Best Regards

  • It's possible that you're simply saturating your Internet connection with traffic. This can cause packet loss or significantly delayed packets.

    What do you see if you try using the tracert command instead of ping? This will give an indication of where the delay actually is.

    I'm not on the WHS team, I just post a lot. :)
