Network momentary lag spikes

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I keep having these momentarily lag spikes like 10-20 times a day. It happens randomly. It's not just my PC, it happens to my 360 as well. Not the router, modem, could be the cables, but would affect more than one cable and i don't understand. I have ran scans after scans on my computer, I don't think it's a virus. My wireless has been disabled for a month and it still happens.

Clues as to what I could do?

What have you used to measure the lag?

What makes you think it's not the router/modem?

How long are your ethernet cables and what class are they?

What type of internet do you have?

What's your speedtest.net ping?

For example, when I am playing League of Legends, my ping goes from 89-91 to 999 which is max. It's not the router nor the modem because I have replaced them both and it still spiked or whatever it does. Comcast, but never spiked before a year ago. and my ping is like 22-24 on average. I don't consistently lag, just momentarily.

I would suggest running tracert to one of LoL's servers but I did some searching and couldn't find any IPs. Try running tracert to a few popular sites to see if you notice any ping lag between the isp to the web. Since you've replaced the router/modem and you are certain they're configured right I would think there is a running process to blame but you mentioned it happens on your 360 as well so maybe not...

Have you run wireshark yet to see if you notice anything strange on the network? You're going to get a lot of crap showing up (ARP, broadcasts, TCP, etc...) but if you know what to look for it might give you a clue.

There isn't a solution in that link but Xeris has a good list of things to check. I'm guessing those IP's are for LoL servers...

BUT if this is happening with your 360 as well then it's for sure either your router/modem or the isp's.
