Ping problem with my new TP-Link TD W8961N

Model: TD-W8961N  
Hardware Version: V3
Firmware Version: FwVer:3.24.13.0_MT7550 HwVer:T14.F7_13.0

Hello,

I just bought a new TP-Link  TD W8961N modem router in the hope to reduce the ping a little bit (i was using a weak router provided by my ISP and the ping was between 68ms and 75ms which is not that bad but can be better). Well, i was surprised to see that the new TP-Link router raised the ping to 97ms !! frown in both wired and wireless.I'm still thinking maybe there is something i can change in the router parameters to solve this problem and at least decrease the ping to the values i had with the old router.

Hello, try to login to the web UI of the TD-W8961N and then go to interface setup-LAN-DNS page, choose use user discovered DNS server only and change the primary DNS to 8.8.8.8 and secondary DNS as 8.8.4.4. 

 

Besides, does the ping value affect the actual performance of the main router? 

 

Good day.

Hi, thank you for your reply.I changed the DNS but unfortunately, the ping is still at 90ms values. Concerning your question about the main router, if i understood right the answer is I'm only using the TD W8961N as an ADSL modem and router at the same time, there are no other routers in the network.

Yes, the main router means the TD-W8961N. 

 

Does the ping value affect the actual performance of it? 

 

Try to customize the wireless settings and upgrade the firmware to the latest one as well. 

 

Good day.
