Constant ping spikes - all games affected (area 22)
I've been with VM for a few years but have recently moved area. Since doing so, I've experienced ping spikes every couple of minutes with my games, where things will stop responding. Dota, LoL and HotS are the biggest culprits, but I'm noticing even with background applications like Teamspeak that everything goes quiet regularly for a few seconds and then continues like nothing had happened. This is running constantly, not just at peak times
The Dota client's own network stats says I'm at 0% packet loss, 30ms ping, but every couple of minutes this jumps to 200+ before settling down again.
The only thing that might be worth mentioning is that our router is a few years old - about 6 I reckon, but I've reset it to factory settings a couple of times and had no such luck sorting it.
Here's how my connection is looking:
And my down and upstream stats:
Any answers would be greatly appreciated - meant to be hosting a LAN next week, so need things to be working!
