ok I finally after all day researching and working on it that it was a cable issue .
Well not the physical cable per say. But the punch down part. One of the pins was loose. Instead of registering the full 8 pins only 7 were registering . That's why my pings were off when I would ping in and out. Sometimes they were registering sometimes they were not

You have an MRTG issue in the screenshot and then you talk about an issue with pinging.  It appears the problem is fixed so assign points or request a refund.

If your still having an issue with MRTG let us know.
