Is anyone having a higher than usual ping when using a thunderbolt to Ethernet adapter? Or maybe the thunderbolt adaptor has a known issue?

Found this thread, Ping on Mavericks on late 2013 MacBook Pro slow and variable compared to Windows

but it doesn't look to cover hardwire connections.

  • Not really, but what are your numbers?

  • 30ms, having some issues when gaming. I have a high bandwidth at 50mb but wondering if it's an issue of my MacBook Pro not having a dedicated Ethernet port. I saw the post I mentioned in the question and hoped maybe it was a solution. Oct 17 '14 at 3:04
  • Did you Ping your router or a web site? What is your ping for Google.com

  • I have only used speedtest and pingtest and provided those results. I am not sure how to ping check for something like Google.com. Not sure if it's worth mentioning but am also using a apple time capsule router. Oct 17 '14 at 3:10
  • @Buscar웃 I checked ping time with google server and --- www.google.com ping statistics --- 10 packets transmitted, 10 packets received, 0.0% packet loss round-trip min/avg/max/stddev = 15.066/17.942/22.067/2.154 ms Oct 21 '14 at 0:59

So I did the test using the ping command in terminal

For Google.com

Ping Google.com

The result for 2.5 GHz WiFi was:

20 packets transmitted, 19 packets received, 5.0% packet loss round-trip min/avg/max/stddev = 16.295/18.872/30.858/2.935 ms

with transmit rate of 130.

And for my 5 GHz WiFi:

15 packets transmitted, 15 packets received, 0.0% packet loss round-trip min/avg/max/stddev = 17.451/19.066/21.444/1.157 ms

with transmit rate of 216.
