    ping spikes only while playing


    Since some months I have ping spikes on every game I play and also on zoom call. I didn t have them before i already updated my drivers, reset my computer, my modem and my router. I use wi-fi. It works well on the other device like my phone and my other pc. I don't really know what to do. the graph show what happends, as you can see the connection cuts off. If you can help I would be gratefull.

    :)

    Ping Spikes

    Recently, I have discovered that I am receiving ping spikes from 200-1000 every 10 seconds or so when playing games, causing me to rubberband. However, I usually receive around 20ms in between ping spike intervals. I am using an ethernet cable that is connected
    'Wi-fi Booster', which is connected to my router downstairs. I have tried multiple solutions in an attempt to fix this issue such as:

    • Checking if my network adapters are outdated
    • Troubleshooting my network adapters
    • Changing my default DNS server to 1.1.1.1 (gives lower ping than 8.8.8.8)
    • Disabling the feature where my PC would usually download updates from other computers
    • Disabling OneDrive sync in Policy Group Editor

    This is what it typically looks like, however it gets somewhat worse over time:

    Random ping spikes in games

    System:

    Mobo: Gigabtye GA-A320M-S2H

    RAM: 2xDDR4 8GB

    CPU: AMD Ryzen 7 1800X

    Storage: 1 HDD and 1 SSD (Windows is on SSD)

    GPU: Nvidia GTX 1070

    OS: Windows 10

    Problem

    While playing online games, my ping will randomly
    spike up
    . In this time, my computer is effectively offline as I can't do anything online (use websites, discord calls etc). In games with built-in ping counters, it commonly reads 10,000 or more ping. After about 10 seconds, the ping will return to normal.
    The ping spikes get less common the longer my computer is on to the point they barely happen. They only start if I play an online game. I have been unable to find a fix that works for the current version of Windows 10.
