Ping spikes when gaming - last two months

I've been here awhile



I've been having ping spikes while gaming for the last two months on a pc connected via ethernet. The lag isn't all the time but happens roughly 20% of the time while gaming. However it ruins the experience. I've tried changing ethernet cables. Rebooting the router a few times. This issue has been persistent over the last two months. Willing to share any test data required.

Hi @RogersZia, thanks for the response.


Please see my results below:

I would note this issue is not constant but rather while gaming over a couple hour session about 10% of the time my ping spikes a lot.
