Ping spikes

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I've been tormented by this horrible ping in games for around 3 weeks now, the ping randomly spikes to 150-250 and goes away as quick as it came.
This wouldn't be quite so annoying if it wasn't for the fact that it happens all the time, sometimes as often as four-five times a minute.
It feels like I lag even when I don't see the ping spike in games like Counter-Strike and League of Legends, it just feels horrible to play now and it's really ruining my fun. (Activates rage mode.)

Things I've tried: Restarting my modem, resetting my modem, restarting my router, trying different firmware for my router, resetting router to factory settings,
virus scan, network card driver update, connecting directly to my modem, getting my ISP to update the firmware on my modem (And probably a few other things..)

Here's a picture of me pinging hotmail, youtube, google and vg from my router and from my PC:



Does anyone have any idea what this might be?

According to your tracert the problem is NOT on your end.

You have to take it up with your ISP and whatever routes they use or Dynamic DNS server they are using

I was starting to think the same thing, all this to no avail.
I think I'm just gonna ask them for a technician, I am really tired of contacting my ISP without any results.

EDIT: Btw, two days ago my internet went down and said it couldn't connect to the DNS, do you think that might have something to do with this?

Maybe, the most common network issues are always DNS

Ping inconsistency is NEVER a DNS issue. Once the name is resolved the first time, you're done looking stuff up in DNS.

The traceroutes clearly show an upstream issue at that third hop - inside your ISP or their upstream ISP. Nothing you do on your local end of the link will help.

I've once again contacted my ISP, I sent them the picture that I showed you above and explained my problems once again. Hopefully they will be able to actually do something about it now. thumb.gif
