Weird issue/question:

When pinging from XP machines to device on local subnet, same switch, within 1 router, all response times are <1ms.  However, on a vista PC, when I ping the same devices on local subnet, same switch, i see that EVERY time, the first reply is 18ms, but the remaining are always <1ms  Is this some type of bug, or why is it the first ping has such a delay?  Also, if I do infinite -t switch, same thing, first ping always a delay, but the remaining pings are <1ms.  What gives?

Try disabling IPv6. Default is enabled on Vista and Win 7.

It could be due firewall or antivirus. Please check a similar question
