Latency/Ping Problems when someone else connects to modem.

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hello guys

I've had a problem with my ping for a fairly long time now and narrowed it down to a program or my MOBO in my gaming PC.

I connect my PC via Ethernet and my ping is a steady 15-20 but as soon as someone connects to the WiFi on my BOB lite modem my ping sky rockets to 1500-3000 and renders my gaming or browsing useless till they disconnect again ive tried a different modem and different Ethernet cords and just about everything else but nothing has worked. Any help with this problem or if anyone knows of any programs that would be causing this problem would be greatly appreciated.

MOBO- Asrock z77 extreme4 which has a Broadcom Lan card
Modem- BOB Lite

Did you reboot the modem?

Re-install the Firmware?

Does the modem have a QOS option? As far as the cause, the processor is most likely processing 100% of the packets it can first come first serve. Kind of like when windows shows the hours glass. With a QOS, you could prioritize which IP gets first come. If not, you might be better off bridging the modem to another router that can.

Yes i have tried QOS giving my PC 75% off connection but it still happens and ive tried a completely different modem. Also have done a reset and re installed firmware on my current modem. I have narrowed it down to something on my PC or Ethernet card on my MOBO

Get Wireshark and watch the packets while connecting another PC via wifi. Stop recording after 20 seconds and review the packets. Also make sure you have the correct ip addresses and subnet mask.
