    I don't know ,but I just curious.

    Sometime when I surfing on the internet there is a lag that the internet freeze for a short time and then the internet came back. So I tried to ping my router and here are the result

    The wireless link at 144 Mbit/s

    --- 192.168.1.1 ping statistics ---
    100 packets transmitted, 100 packets received, 0.0% packet loss
    round-trip min/avg/max/stddev = 0.979/3.785/39.443/3.735 ms

    and the second time

    --- 192.168.1.1 ping statistics ---
    100 packets transmitted, 100 packets received, 0.0% packet loss
    round-trip min/avg/max/stddev = 0.901/3.498/19.756/2.119 ms

    compare to the LAN Cable (1Gbps)

    --- 192.168.1.1 ping statistics ---
    100 packets transmitted, 100 packets received, 0.0% packet loss
    round-trip min/avg/max/stddev = 0.355/0.497/0.861/0.079 ms

    Is this normal?
    or what should I do to check weather I am having a problem with my wireless card.

    My is MacBookPro5,3 15" model Intel C2D 2.66 GHz mid 2009

    Sorry for bad English.

    I can't see any problems. Due to the way wireless works from a response time standpoint it's more latent than Ethernet. The packet has to be broadcast and then received by the access point, then the response broadcast by the access point to your MacBook.

    You don't have any packet loss either.

    Looks ok to me, are you having other issues with your connection that lead you to think you have a problem?
    I`m on ethernet due to my home office being a long way from my router and there is a noticeable difference if I go onto wireless.

    Connectivity looks fine.

    Throughput and response time will always be lower with wireless than a directly connected cat-5.
