Until about 2 weeks ago i was able to play games and use the internet on my computer decently averaging around 22ms latency and around 500kbs download speed (the download speed is a whole different problem of why it is that low in the first place, as we pay for 10Megabit
). After that point I've been having extremely noticeably reductions.My download speed has move than halved and maxes out around 200kbs. Furthermore when playing a game I start out with a semi normalish ping of ~50ms which it stays at for about 5-10 minutes and after that it starts to average continually spike to upwards of 3000ms, or even disconnect for around 3-10 seconds. This happens throughout the whole of me playing the game, until near the very end, of each match, at about 5 minutes until the end, the lag clears up a bit and I average a semi-stable 50-80ms (playable).
I'm Really starting to get frustrated at it
, because these problems only happen on my computer
. A lot of times it will end up with me power cycling the router and modem and hoping for a miracle.
I've tried using AVG and Malwarebytes to check for any malware that may be plaguing my computer to no avail. I have also re-installed my network driver multiple times in case It was somehow an issue.
Note: I am running off an ethernet cable.
I Am happy to answer any needed questions or provide any more info. I will be attaching a Speccy snapshot with more detailed info of my computer's specs if those be needed.
ps: feel free to inform me of any other wonky crap that may be going on with my computer if you wish
