    Hello guys.

    For some time I've been using my pc on wifi also was gaming on wifi. I get like 15 to 20 ping on wifi from speedtest and 12 to 16 on ethernet.

    Weird part is that i get the same ping numbers when playing call of duty cold war. 60 ms and over for both connections wifi and ethernet. Any idea how to get lower ping?

    Check Speedguide.net's gaming tweaks and see if anything there will help, although 60ms is not bad.
    If you got a good tweaked WiFi with signal strength around -40dBm, it will do as well as the LAN connection latency wise, probably why you don't see any difference.

    You have no influence over any server out there.
    Try changing the server you play on to one near you and ping will drop.
    LAN has almost no latency compared to wifi. So if both ways show the same ping, the problem is not within your network.

    Sometimes a router power cycle helps to get a new IP / connect to another server.
