    I just bought a new 15"/2.3ghz/16gb/750M rMBP, which is my first Mac. I find the ping times to my local router very high (200ms) when the network is idle. However, when the network is downloading/uploading, the ping times lowered to about 1ms. Is this common among Mac hardwares? I am using Asus N65U router. It was the same even if I switched from 2.4ghz band to 5ghz band.

    I just want to know if this is common of a Late 2013 Retina MacBook Pro, if not I will schedule for an exchange as my Windows laptop is showing sub 2ms ping times consistently whether the network is idle or not.

    I have never tested ping to my local router (Netgear WNDR3700) before. Looks like the MBPr is a little slower with ping. I have no performance issues with wifi on the MBPr so it is a non issue for me.

    So you have a comparison, I just tested my Late 2013 MBPr and my Mid 2011 Mini in the same location and both on wifi.

    I generally get 10-30ms pings on external speed tests on the MBPr.
