The last couple of weeks I have noticed I am getting regular ping spikes while trying to play on game servers on steam. Specifically the game Rust is the game I am regularly trying to play at the moment. When I start in any server I get a normal average of 20 ping (using the ingame tool to display ping/fps etc.) then all of a sudden it will go to over 300 ping & sometimes as high as over 1000 ping !
This high ping is getting me kicked from my go to server where I have invested a lot of my playtime. I really need to get this sorted asap.
I have forwarded ports for both steam servers & also Rust specific ports.
Please help as it makes no difference when I play at peek times or off peek times.
It is not practical for me to connect direct to the Superhub because my pc is upstairs & the Shub is downstairs. I am connected using Ethernet cable. Ping test to a server I use gave me :- Packets: Sent=78 Received=78, Lost=0(0% Loss), Approximate round trip times in milli-seconds: Minimum=216, Maximum=1515 ms , average = 833 ms
This ping is randomly high sometimes it is great at around 20 ms but can suddenly spike over 1000.
