Are these ping times normal for bonded MoCa 2.0?

I recently setup a MoCa line using two Hirschmann Inca 1G adapters, between my AX88u main router and my AX92u node. Mostly to improve ping stability compared to wifi.

I have done multiple ping tests in the meantime, and the results are somewhat higher than what I expected. On average, the MoCa line has much less severe ping spikes and lower jitter, but the median ping is around 4ms higher compared to the AX wireless backhaul of Aimesh I was using.

Here are the pingplotter tables (interval: 0,5s), Pinging the AX88U while connected wired to the AX92u.

My question is, are these ping times normal? I use the AX92u for gaming and online meetings, so a low and stable ping are my priority.

I’ve noticed the slight lag in my moca 2.5 setup as well, but it’s about trade offs. I love having the wired back haul, so not a big deal and we’ll worth it…

moca introduces a couple msec of lag.
I read that it will indeed introduce a couple of millseconds of delay. But I didn't expect it to be more than an average WiFi connection, which also introduces a few milliseconds. Someone mentioned around 3 ms and my connection is between 4.5 and 7ms. I'm not sure that is correct.

I recall seeing testing that indicated ~5ms of additional latency with MOCA. Your numbers look about right from that perspective.
