what are you pinging? Yourself or something else?

Whatever site you use most often.  You will get different pings from different sites.  Use the same ones over the long term so you know what is normal from your location.

It's going to vary because those servers are at different locations/hosts

Run cmd

Type tracert www.google.com

That will tell you your latency from each node all the way to google

Your ISP's DNS servers is a good place to start if you are testing your own connection.


Sometimes, ICMP protocol is shut off beyond that so you'll get nothing no matter the connection quality.
