I've got a good wi-fi connection with only 4ms ping time to my router:
PS C:\Users\bobuhito> ping 10.0.0.1 Pinging 10.0.0.1 with 32 bytes of data: Reply from 10.0.0.1: bytes=32 time=4ms TTL=64 Reply from 10.0.0.1: bytes=32 time=5ms TTL=64 Reply from 10.0.0.1: bytes=32 time=4ms TTL=64 Reply from 10.0.0.1: bytes=32 time=4ms TTL=64
But, when I think about the physical processes occurring here, it seems technology allows us to get this under 1ms (by the way, I know ethernet is under 1ms, but I want to stay within the 802.11 standards for wireless freedom).
So, is the 4ms here caused by a power tradeoff? I mean could we easily get 1ms if we designed the wi-fi adapter hardware with a power-hungry "always-ready" mode?
Generally, how can I get this ping time under 1ms (within the 802.11 standards)? The data above already has my laptop only a few feet away from the router.
