    My wireless router is DI-624 and I am doing pings from a wireless client.
    The wireless setting is as follows:

    WPA-PSK enabled
    Disable SSID broadcast
    Disable Super-G
    802.11g only
    All other wireless settings are default.
    My internet connection is maintained by this router.

    DI-624 Rev B Firmware 1.28
    Packets: Sent = 31, Received = 29, Lost = 2 (6% loss),
    Minimum = 1ms, Maximum = 2706ms, Average = 725ms

    As comparisons, I pinged a local computer and another router

    Windows 2000 Professional Service Pack 4
    Packets: Sent = 22, Received = 22, Lost = 0 (0% loss),
    Minimum = 1ms, Maximum = 7ms, Average = 1ms

    SMC7004ABR Firmware 1.40.018 (DHCP is turned off)
    Packets: Sent = 35, Received = 35, Lost = 0 (0% loss),
    Minimum = 1ms, Maximum = 992ms, Average = 30ms

    My internet connection was very slow (about 4.2 seconds instead of the
    usual 0.2 second to an internet server I usually use). I wondered if my
    is the source of the problem. It has been without reboot for a few days.

    After rebooting DI-624, the latency becomes so much less.
    Packets: Sent = 34, Received = 34, Lost = 0 (0% loss),
    Minimum = 1ms, Maximum = 5ms, Average = 1ms

    My internet connection becomes normal. The router was the problem! But why?
