Network Latency

Wired vs Wireless LAN

Bryan Garza & Nathan Hildebrand

Research Question

Is there a difference in mean wired LAN (Local Area Network) speed versus mean wireless LAN speed?

The Procedure

To collect our data, we used the command-line program ping. Our data set consisted of 2,000 individuals values recorded in milliseconds.

What is (a) ping?

"Ping is a fundamental program that allows a computer to send a request to another computer somewhere else on the network or on the Internet in order to determine if the computer exists and is responding. A ping sends a packet of data to a specific address and waits for an appropriately named "pong" response."
