    Hello MacRumors.
    Every time i turn on my MBP my ping time on my other computers increases.
    I just got a brand new router, that didn't help, and i have scanned my mac with 2 different antivirus programs and nothing was found...
    Please help me !

    You could capture your network traffic with wireshark (www.wireshark.org) and see whats going on your network.

    Launch activity monitor and view the network traffic stats. It'll show you how much bandwidth you're using in real time. Make sure it's actually doing stuff before blaming it. Sounds like a crappy router or other computer to me.

    I used to own a router that would constantly ping everyone on the network, causing them to constantly download nothing at 30kb/s
