ARP Ping odd response

Sun Mar 09, 2008 10:13 pm

I tried looking in the PDF but cant find an answer. I googled around, but no answer to my question in general terms

I tried this on two Mtiks - one runnig 3.3 and one on 3.4. they are at two of my wireless towers.

When pinging a device (such as an AP or an SM) with a regular ping, I get the expect snappy response (less than 20ms).

If I do an ARP ping, about every 3rd or 4th ping I get one long ping (over 900ms). Very consistent, regardless of what device I am pinging.

I also tried it on devices on other ports, WAN ports, switch ports.... same thing in any case.

Can someone shed some light on this?
