    i am using vista ultimate 64 bit. i play america's army quite alot. my fps are very high but my ping is high. i have a friend that uses the same isp and lives very close. they average in the 20s where i am averaging around 150 to 200. they have a 3 gig celeron with 1 gig of ram. i have so much more of a computer and still have a high ping. they are using xp and have told me that is the reason. if it is, is there any kind of tweaking i can do? i was running it though a router and went direct and saw a slight gain for a short time then it went up again.

    If you look in our Networking forum, you'll find some pinned posts about network troubleshooting. It may be related to autotuning and/or IPv6 -- both of which are new to Vista and could explain the performance difference over XP.
