    Hey there, just recently put windows 7 on one of my computers.
    Fresh install, w7 ultimate, eset smart security 4.2.

    When running a ping -t 192.168.1.1 test from a command prompt, i am getting 10-25 ms responses. Now with windows xp everything was <1ms to the router, as it should be.
    Ok, so i have installed another NIC, same problem. Replaces network cables, same problem. Replaced routers, same problem. Ive also read another post somewhere with someone else fresh install of w7 + ess with the same issue, only they where checking it to yahoo.com, i have eliminated any kind of internet slow downs and im getting latency through a 3 ft cat5 cable. Whereas the same computer with windows xp + ess 4.2 was running without any lag to the router.
    I found this out playing games and wondering wtf was going on with my connection as i was getting disconnected frequently. I started running tracerts and ping loops to router and google.com and noticed that packets where occasionally dropping in groups of 3 and unusually high response time to begin with.
    Love eset and have been recommending their products to all my clients for well over 2-3 years. Hope we can get this windows 7 issue resolved and back to smooth sailing.

    Thanks
