Latency lower after RH and Mandrake!?

Hi all i recently braved linux in the form of RH 9.0 on my fileserver pc, one i leave on most of the time running emule/amule/xmule.......and it has seemed to improved my ping on my other box (win Xp) when im playing Counter this an expected improvement?

Its very odd from my understanding (slight) of networks...

When the FS was a win2k box when it was downloading at around 40kbs and uploading at around 10 kbs on a dsl line my latency in a game of CS would be 200.....but now no matter what the speed its 60!!!!

Its fantastic but im confused....

This is still the case now i have loaded MDK 9.2 which i am having ago at going to try a distro a month!!
