    This is probably because of Windows XP Quality of Service. This embedded software is used to maximize data transfer and minimize bandwidth consumption. Instead of measuring ping times, why not play a game on both and see which one is faster and better.

    It could also be driver related if you connect through something other than your NIC (say USB, serial modem and so on).
