Re: latency

Yes - but for gaming you should be using a wired connection

Re: latency

A latency of 2.2 seconds isn't caused by gaming over wifi.  Whilst not perfect, wifi would only add about 3-10ms to your latency, and if a packet were delayed for 2.2 seconds the various hardware and software would long have timed out.

Setup a BQM over at https://www.thinkbroadband.com/broadband/monitoring/quality that'll show what's going on with your VM connection.  Post a link to a live, shared graph here and we'll see what's happening on the broadband side of things.  Usually needs to run for 24 hours before we can draw reasonable conclusions, but the live graph will continuously update so you can post the link immediately.
