I use a wireless router and I cannot easily changed to wired as my computer is on the other side of the house to the modem and router and there is another computer in the room with the modem.
I've tried several of different options:
- Disabled WZC
- Changed steam launch mode to TCP - has lowered frequency of lag
- Let my router not block ping
- Power cycled (loads)
- Repaired my adapter
- Keep pinging my router
None of these have worked for me. My ping is fine in game (usually around the 30-40 mark) but when i ping my router in CMD, I usually get loads of <1-5ms, which is fine, but every 30 seconds or so I would get something ranging from 1000ms - Request time out. It's even worse when I'm in game as every 5-10 seconds i get a jump to 500+ms. Because my ping is fine in game I've been told it may be my GPU but my fps is constantly at 59-61 and change the graphics does nothing.
I have fixed this before, when I say fix I mean I could just pull my adapter out and put it back in and my game play is fine, but after formatting my computer the problem is back and seems worse and I really don't know what to do or what I did.
I am using a Belkin N Router.
