Bag lag drops while gaming on WiFi

http://www.thinkbroadband.com/speedtest/results.html?id=148266197425789640162

 

We pay for superfiber 70 and while online gaming on wifi I get these scores. I spent money on a new Network card believeing it was my dongle. To wake up on christmas and install it for it to have done nothing!

Please can I have information on if the Virgin down think is effecting me I live ion the Manchester area

is the connection wired or wireless 50 on a 70 connection is not bad. 50 on wireless is also good.

Re: Bag lag drops while gaming on WiFi

nothing seems wrong with the speed. the lag could be related to something else. The game server or your computer.

Have you tested with a wired connection with any other program including antivirus and firewalls disabled.

Is it happening to one game or more then one?

Wireless drop from 7- to 30 is normal. wifi can be affected by lots of things and the 2.4ghz use is ever changing. It may be more devices in the area (not just yours) using the 2.4ghz band.

You can try changing the channel but if you need stable connection wired is the way to go. You can try powerline adapters if you can not tun a network cable.
