Frequent horrendous spikes, just me


Since the beginning, I would be having horrible lag spikes frequently. 3 members including me use the internet via wifi. I seem to be the only one suffering from ridiculous spikes that shoot up to well over 500ms when we play the same game, to the point where I can't connect and I go watch my flatmate play the same game. I have tried turning off all other devices and apps across all flatmates devices, does not help. What is going on? 

Please enlighten me,

Re: Frequent horrendous spikes, just me

Your downstream power levels are running a tad warm, but still wuthin VM specs. This does not seem to be causing a problem as your flatmates would be experiencing problems as well.

Have you tried playing the game on a wired connection? This would test if you have a localised interference problem caused by nearby networks or domestic appliances like A\V Streaming devices, Baby monitors, Chordless phones. Microwave ovens, Plasma TVs, Security systems, Wireless controllers\mice etc.

Using the 5Ghz band if your device supports it. If not it maybe worth trying changing the wireless channel the hub is broadcasting on.

What device are you using to play the game?

I would  check if your device's wireless adapter's drivers are up to date from the adapter's manufacturer's website. I would also try using WPA2 with AES encryption
