Period lag spikes while gaming on wireless internet

Q: Period lag spikes while gaming on wireless internet

*Meant to title this "Periodic lag spikes while gaming on wireless internet"

I've searched high and low and still can't find a fix for this.

I just moved into a new place and I'm stuck with wireless internet. I used to play various FPS games while my PC was hardwired and I never had a problem like this.

Thing is, every minute or so, I get a large lag spike where the game will freeze for about a second or two. Connection is not dropped, just lags. I've contacted Dynex (makers of my wireless adapter) and they're convinced it's not the adapter.

I've been running a ping against Google using "ping www.google.com -t" to see what my connection is like. The results are very consistent. 30-35 pings at 50ms-55ms, then a ping for 1900ms-2200ms, a ping for 260-280ms, and then back to the 50-55ms pings.

Dynex also had me ping an address (172.0.0.1 I think) and of the four packets it sent, there was no data loss.

I've also disabled the Wireless Zero Config to no avail. I'm at a loss, any help would be great.

Ok, Im sure you have all read posts about this problem.
Basically im quite upset and angry at the fact i just bought a beautiful new machine, thinking ill be able to finally game propelly, to only find that..
I get these 2-5seconds where my gaming ( World of Warcraft ) freezes completely.
Basically from what i've read its something to do with Vistas wireless that searches for a new and better connection every 60seconds.
My computer is NOT connected to the router, it has a 3/5 signal strength and my ping is OK. Its just these lag spikes that are killing me.
I've tried VISTA Anti-LAg and the WLAN optimizer. Nothing works at all.
Anyone have ANY other suggestions as to what i can do to get rid of these 2-5second lag spike/freezes with my gaming?
Im running VISTA Premium x64bit...
All help would be fantastic..
Thank you

A:Wireless lag spikes and gaming :(

What controller do you use ?
Check the controller properties (WWM deactivated, mode: G only)
If you receive signal from other networks, remove them.
The most important is to use the prog delivered with your drivers and not the Vista one.

hi, I have some problems with my wireless connection for my computer.
I have a new computer, and I set up my wireless router. I am getting massive lag spikes in games every 60 seconds on the computer that uses the wireless adapater. I found some information that this may be from wireless zero configuration.
I try disabling that, but when I do I lose my entire internet connection.
Then when I try to manually connect when the wireless zero is disabled, I get the "limited or no connectivity" message.
What can I do to stop the lag spikes from happening?
My wireless adapter is a D-Link AirPlus G DWL-G122 Wireless USB if that helps any.
Thanks for any help~

Hey, so I have the following problem. Every 60 or so seconds, my wireless internet "spikes". I.e. ping -t google.ca shows normal pings, except for one around every 60 seconds where the ping skyrockets to ~1000ms.

These lag spikes do not occur for the wired internet.
My router is linksys WRT54G.
No encryption, except for a mac filter.
Windows XP
ISP is videotron
I have tried the following:

Disabling Windows Zero Configuration has not helped.
Disabling power saving for the adapter has not helped.
Changing channels has not helped.
Disabling/enabling SSID broadcast has not helped.
Disabling windows firewall/closing antivirus.
Turned off QoS.
And other things.

If you need any other information, just ask.

Hey, I've been having problems with my internet connection via this computer for a long time, but over the last couple of months it's become infuriatingly bad. I contacted my ISP and managed to find out the problem is within my computer or at least the wireless connection between it and the router. But I cannot find the source of the problem

It's almost as if the computer has something switched on/off and suddenly the connection becomes really unstable, it constantly returns to it's normal speed before dropping to a near stand still, over and over again. It happens randomly and it doesn't stop unless i restart my computer, although it normally happens more often after/during streams, games or while watching videos.

Any help or suggestions would be amazing right now. Thanks.
 

A:Curious wireless internet spikes

Is this the only PC that disconnects - do other devices connected work OK - if so how are they connected to the router - wireless or wired

would you post the following tests when the internet is working OK, and then repeat ALL the tests when the internet disconnects.
Make sure you also indicate on the reply which tests are for what condition.

please include the xirrus screen shots for both conditions - see how below.

Please post back here the make and exact model of the router and if you have a separate modem, the make and exact model of the modem.

Please make a note of the status of the lights on the modem and on the router when working normally - post that light status here.
Now when the internet disconnects make a note of the status of the lights for the modem and router here again. also note which have changed.

What firewall / security suite or anti-virus do you currently have on the PC - or you have ever had on the PC in the past - any trial ware - like Norton, kaspersky or Mcafee or any free security suites like zonealarm, AVG , Webroot etc

lets see the following please

Three Ping tests

Gaming LCD's

I am wondering what the best lcd monitor for gaming is. I am hooking this up to dual 7800 gt's and want to take advantage of this by buying a premium monitor. I know that for gaming lower response time is better and that native resolution should be relatively high, any help would be appreciated. By the way, im looking to spend around $500.
 

A:The BEST gaming lcd...period

For $500 you could easily buy any high-end 17" LCD. And for 19", $500 will get you a pretty good one, if not a great one. LCD prices are changing so rapidly.

But if you get a 19", make sure it suits some basic things first, like the type of connection. Is it DVI? Does it match your vid card outputs? Getting a digital signal is the first thing to look for. Then make sure it handles your favorite resolution. For 19" this would be like 1280x1024 or even 1600x1200.
After this, the best thing to do is find a site that runs comparisons on LCDs. Select the 3 to 5 or so that you like best and compare side to side. You'll see who has quicker response times, brighter picture, more features etc...
PCWorld has such comparrisons, check tomshardware.com, then just do some googling.

Couldn't say what is the "BEST..period". Some people would say only CRTs can be the best.

Processor: Intel Core i7-7700HQ 2.8GHz
RAM: 16Gb DDR4
GPU: GTX1050 (Intel HD630 Integrated)
OS: Windows 10

So this has been an issue with my PC pretty much since I got it back in September however has just recently gotten so bad that it can't be ignored. When running a large program such as Counter Strike or Rocket League the game will run fine at around 190fps/150fps respectively however shortly after will drop to an apparent '60fps' however it is extremely laggy and looks more like 10. This occasionally will fix itself for around a minute then break again. Recently though it will not fix and the whole computer system will lag until the application is closed. It will then take up to 5 minutes for the PC to run normally again.

At first I thought it was a thermal issue but have downloaded multiple PC monitoring programs and found this not to be the case. CPU and GPU sit at around 70C / 60C. I have reinstalled and updated drivers including the integrated graphics driver and have factory reset my PC 3 times. Nothing seems to work.

He installs everything fine and I get my computer back, but now whenever I play a game I get these DPC spikes which cause my game to hang for ~10 seconds. My drivers are all up to date. I can't find how to fix the problem, I have googled the issue and looked but nothing seems to help me.
Here is a screenshot of the spikes.


If anyone can help me at all I would really appreciate it, I went out and bought all these new upgrades (old cpu was 1.8ghz single core so dual core 3ghz is a big upgrade for me) and now I can't even game.

Hello,

I'm having issues playing games now due to this CPU/GPU max usage spiking while playing and it causes a lag spike.. it happens like every few seconds and it's driving me up the wall.. really not for sure where else to go with this issue.. it happens in nearly every game i play as well.

GPU: GTX 970 4gb
CPU: i7 4770k 3.50GHz
Storage: Samsung EVO 850 250gb for OS and 500gb for games
RAM:16gb
PSU:1000w

solutions I've tried..
unparking cpu, updating to latest gpu drivers, latest realtek sound and network drivers for my motherboard, latest chipset, cleaning out my pc, checking my temps.. it never goes above 70c while gaming.. both my gpu and cpu. even a clean install of Windows 10 Pro x64 bit, I've even done a clean boot and the issue is still occuring.. really at a stand still. I'm going to upload the screenshots of the in-game graph that is showing the spikes.

Slightly different question from the Plug and play forum:

I have 2Wire DSL Modem (1000HW found at http://www.2wire.com/?p=106) in my house for my SBC DSL. I have had my PC connected straight to it with and ethernet cable and my boys PC connected through a phone jack. Recently we wanted to hook up a third PC to the network and decided to go with the wireless connection. I bought two D-Link brand (Not sure the model number) wireless cards (decided to switch the sons PC to wireless too) and connected them up last night.

Seems to work pretty good. I enabled the 64 Bit 10 character key encrytion, renamed the network SSID and set it so the SSID was not visible without the key. Any other security I should think of doing?

Also, as mentioned, I am connected through an ethernet cable straight to the modem. I have always have a good connection rate, but the son's (through the phone line) was a lot slower than mine. Now that he is on the card, he is a lot fater than he was. I am curious, which would be faster for me, the ethernet cable or wireless?

Any other advice to a new wireless net hack (Me and my limited knowledge, not a program) would be greatly appreciated.

Oh, two PC's are running XP and the latest is a old machine with Win 2K. Wireless was easy on the 2K machine, but a lot of trial and error on the XP box.

The problem: I've recently bought this awesome new gaming computer (specs later on)
and I got some new games on it such as; Crysis 3, FarCry 3, Payday 2, The Witcher 2, and on.
After about 10-20 minutes of gaming, I start noticing lag spikes in the game as in - momentarily FPS drop, which are pretty frequent, but aren't extremely massive that freeze my screen, but in irritating little stops of 0.05 secs every other second. they are eye-noticeable but I have no idea how to better describe them.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660. my screen is Samsung's SyncMaster T190.

I've monitored my computer's temp using HWMonitor, and nothing seems too high. the CPU keeps going on +- the same temp while gaming and while not.

Thanks for any help !
 

A:20 minutes into gaming - lag spikes in games

If you could provide us with the actual temps (numbers) it would be helpful. But, firstly, when something like this occurs. It's good to do a clean uninstall and reinstall of the latest graphic drivers. Is this something you've already tried?

Also, what settings are you trying to play these games on? While the GTX 660 is a pretty decent card. You can't expect it to play at MAX settings with desirable frame rates.

When the lagg spikes occur my whole laptop seems to freeze and the sound is starting to stutter, this happens after about 20-30 mins of playing, and the freeze takes about 5-12 seconds. I have looked for days on forums, and dind't find any solution for this problem. I really want to fix this since it's very annoying lately. My specs are:

I have been looking for any other solutions suchs as re-installing the games, and trying to repair the games with no solution at all. I did a system re-install last weekend and the problem still persists. I just can't find out what the problem is and I really want to fix this! I bought this laptop almost 1 year ago with no problem running my games at all. these problems came about 1 to 2 months ago. Sorry if i made any grammar misstakes, english isn't my Mother language.

Recently(last couple of days) I have been getting constant CPU spikes of up to 100%, they last about 5-10 seconds, make everything stutter and almost freeze, no crashes as of yet, also playback on audio and video seems to be messed up even when the spike is over, sometimes it sounds staticy, other times it the playback is extremely slowed(taking 5 seconds to play 1 second of video/audio). Happens Across Programs too, as in chrome and wmp both have the slow playback problem. Seems to happen most commonly when I load a video/game. I have done a little research on what can cause this and I am fairly certain that it isn't a virus(I've done a full scan several times with Malwarebytes and came back clean), it also isn't dust as the computer is new (about 2 months) and the results from Speccy say i'm at about mid 30s for CPU,motherboard and storage, GPU is at about mid 40s.

Ever since upgrade, I have noticed the sound to intermittently hum/distort/crack while playing music, streaming videos, and especially gaming. I don't mind the occassional pop, but with gaming, this "DPC Lag" is significantly affecting performance dropping my FPS at times from 120FPS to 15FPS in games such as Dota 2, as well as Witcher 3 ( I have not had enough time to test other games). I've attempted various solutions, including all the useless support Windows 10 moderators have to offer (Run SFC /scannow does not work, nor does disabling audio devices).

In addition, I have disabled all CPU power options and uninstalled Geforce drivers + network drivers only to get a slight decrease in lag as noted in the photos below which were taken after all solutions were attempted. I reinstalled Killer drivers as they were out of control with spikes, and that seemed to relieve some lag from those drivers. However, the directx and geforce drivers are way high and I can'...

Ok so i got Windows Ultimate about last week and havent been able to solve this problem. I was running vista home premium and got ultimate and did a clean install. Everything worked fine until the internet disconnected. My computer is running on wireless so i checked my laptop and the internet was working on it. On the pc running ultimate i went to device manager and disabled the turn off to save power but nothing works..
The internet only works when i turn in on it works for about 10 min to up to 2 hours. I dont know what to doo please help.Also when the internet craps out the computer does too. For example if i try to run fireworks on it it will lag. Most of the time it doesnt even open up the program. When i try to open a program when its acting like this it will freeze.

Hello and greetings to all.

I dint understand my pc now..after i fresh format my pc after 2years of usage, i on genuine windows and uptodate till today..but i seems cant leave my pc on idle/downloading most of the time...when i wake up, my pc already restarted..just now while im watching a long series of drama, i get bsod and it said "BAD POOL HEADER"..its the first time i can catch the bsod error..please see attachment for the minidump..

A:BSOD when cpu is idle for long period, no bsod while gaming 4~8hours

Hi udin901.

The latest dump gives a notion that BitDefender caused the BSOD.

Code:
fffff880`0b267968 fffff880`0162d904Unable to load image avc3.sys, Win32 error 0n2
*** WARNING: Unable to verify timestamp for avc3.sys
*** ERROR: Module load completed but symbols could not be loaded for avc3.sys
avc3+0xf904
Description here: Driver Reference Table - avc3.sys

The previous one states it clearly.

Code:
BugCheck C5, {8, 2, 0, fffff80003011127}

*** WARNING: Unable to verify timestamp for bdfndisf6.sys
*** ERROR: Module load completed but symbols could not be loaded for bdfndisf6.sys

Uninstall BitDefender. How to uninstall Bitdefender

Use Microsoft Security Essentials as your antivirus with windows inbuilt firewall, and free MBAM as the on demand scanner.

Download, install and update those, and then run full system scans with both of them, one by one.

Free up the startup. Windows does not need any other program to auto start with it, but the auto start programs often conflicts and causes various problems including BSODs.
Click on the Start button
Type ?msconfig (without quotes), click the resulting link. It will open the System Configuration window.
Select the ?Startup? tab.
Deselect all items other than the antivirus.
Apply > OK
Accept then restart.
Let us know the result.

I know similar questions have been asked before, i'm just making sure.
So, i had Vista but got terrible lag spikes every 60 seconds making gaming impossible.
Had a rough time finally downgrading to XP with the help of a mod from here, appreciated.
Now i'm back on XP but i still get similar spikes.
I get 1 ms constantly and then after a while it suddenly spikes, and returns to normal. It doesn't even matter whether or not i disable the Wireless Zero Configuration service, which many people claim to work. I'm at a loss.

The signal is coming from just 1 flight of stairs (a few feet straight) down from a D-Link DIR635 Router, and the reception is excellent.

I'm using a Sitecom Wireless Network PCI Adapter MiMoXR WL-151 on the latest drivers available.

It even seems to have gotten worse on XP, when i ping the delay its less stable and it frequently stops receiving a signal at all and disconnects.

I've looked all over but found no solution that actually helps at all, should i just accept that wireless isn't gonna work out for me? It seems like a pretty damn big flaw.
PS: Even when just downloading my download speeds frequently sink down to just a few bytes, afterwhich they bump up again. That didn't happen before, when using vista.

I've read about this problem around these forums but mine is a bit different. I have Windows XP Pro SP3. After a random period of maybe 30 mins to a few hours, my internet connection seems inexistant. PC reacts like there is no internet cable plugged in. I've checked the ipconfig command in command prompt before my internet shuts down and after and there was a change. A few lines(IPs) were missing after my internet fell.

Does anyone know that my problem is about and how can I solve it??

Hello all,

I've been having a problem playing online games. It seems that there is a lag spike when playing Half-Life 2 and Counter-Strike Source. I have tried a number of possible solutions, such as resetting the router, updating the firmware, disabling the Wireless Zero Configuration, changing the channels, etc. The lag happens at exactly 30 second intervals. Here's the router and wireless adapter I have:

Wireless Adapter: Belkin Wireless G+ Plus MIMO (F5D9050)
Router: Belkin Wireless G+ Plus MIMO (F5D9230-4)
 

A:Wireless Network Lag Spikes

Not sure that there is much that you can do. You're probably seeing the client looking to see if it should change rate or something. You might try setting the router to a G-only mode if there is one available.

Just a couple of weeks ago, I started receiving sudden lag spikes while I was playing an online game. I went to the Network and Sharing Center when this happened, and it showed that I completely disconnected from the Internet. This happens pretty frequently, at least once every 5 minutes or so, sometimes it is continuous as much as every 30 seconds (literally!).

I thought that there could be a problem with my Internet connection, therefore I preceded to call my Internet company, they came and replaced my router, and lo and behold. The lag is still occuring. The lag, according to my game, has reached anywhere between 1000 ms to 11,000 ms. I can tell I am completely disconnecting from the Internet because my access to the network changes from Local and Internet to Local Only. I also know that I connect to the Internet with Intel(R) 82566DC Gigabit Platform LAN Connect and I have it already set to where it will not shut off to save power.

I have NO idea how to fix this lag. Is there anyone out here that can help possibly? It is just very noticable in online games because everything seems to stop moving and then it disconnects me from the server. Sometimes it is really noticable outside of online gaming as it will also disconnect me from instant messengers like MSN/AIM and also pages on IE will completely stop loading and give errors.

I am not too educated on this sort of thing so any walk throughs on information you may possibly need to help the connection out is appreciated!... Read more

Hi All,

This is my first time coming to a thread for help, I am really don't know where else to go with this one, so if someone can help that would be great.

The issue at hand is, a few weeks ago I started noticing some lag when I am playing games or talking to a couple of mates. This has progressively got worse. Nothing has changed with my wireless. I am unable to find a solid pattern behind it, but it is 100% noticeable when I am playing a game because it freezes and if I have my ping tracker on, you can see the ms reach anywhere between 300 and 2000.

The list of things I have tried:

Updated my Drivers
Ran Diagnostics
Un-Installed McAfee as I heard this can cause this kind of issue
Ran a few IpConfig commands
Checked for any other programmes that may use large network

Currently cannot try running an Ethernet cord through my house (so please do not suggest this, i understand this will more than likely cause the issue to stop but it is easier for me to be on wireless).

I am using a desktop, not a laptop.

I also ran a "Ping google.co.uk -t" this came back with solid ping, other than the ones that show 2000ms+.


If you need any more information from me, please let me know as I really want to get this issue resolved.

Thanks,
Connor

I looked at the lifecycle page and it didn't list a date for EOL.
I read that IE 11 would be supported for as long as Windows 10.  Windows 10 LTSB build 10240 with IE 11 is supported for 10 years.  So, does that mean IE 11 will be supported until at least July 2025?
That seems like an unusually long time.
Where is documentation located describing specifics on how long IE 11 will be supported?

Hello everyone -

I would like to express my sincere thanks in advance to anyone who can help me out. I am completely baffled by an ongoing occurence and I hope that you can help me. I am running WIndows XP pro on a dell inspiron 8600 1.8 pentium M w/2 gig RAM and a built in ethernet card. Each day, at least once, some days as many as 5 or 6 times, I am suddenly unable to access the internet. The browser I am using is IE 6.0.2900 ( I also installed firefox and it cannot accesss the net either) and I have all the current XP service packs installed. The browser will not open any webpages and says basically that they cannot be found. If I reboot the computer, the problem goes away and I can access eveything again, sometimes I'm good for the whole day and sometimes I am off again in less than an hour. Now here is the really strange part. I am on a LAN with 15 other computers and mine is the only one this is happening to. In addition, when my tech guy runs the "ping" program, it shows my computer is actually connected to the internet, which explains why I am still able to send and receive emails without any problem! I have tried connecting via a pcmcia card and the built-in wireless card after I seemed to have lost my access to the internet, but the same thing happens with both of them. We are complelety stumped - can anyone shed any light on this?

Sincerely,

R. Patrick Sutton

After my pc has been on for a while (2 hours minimum), seemingly randomly, I am unable to load web pages, getting an instant connection unavailable, and unable to communicate using msn messenger, however I still see my network icon is connected, and am still able to communicate via xfire messenger.

Currently I am able to solve the problem with a restart of the pc, I have tried resetting the router to no success. Other computers using the same internet access do not have the same problem - uninterrupted.

I have run anti virus scans, hijackthis, but nothing seems out of the ordinary.

Any help or advice greatly appreciated.
Thanks

I tried pinging google.com and mozila.com, both of which succeeded.
I was chatting in ventrillo before and during this problem. while unable to browse the internet with a "request denied" message.
I wasn't kicked out of msn, and was able to view people signing in and out, and change display icons etc
I was able to chat in steam messenger, browse steam servers, but now download content.

Neither IE nor FF would display anything, not even attempting to load pages(seemingly)

Hello

I have a wireless network (802.11g) and I get lag spikes every few minutes when playing online games. Very annoying! Any ideas?
 

A:regarding wireless networking and lag spikes during games

Hard to say, really. Wireless connections drop packets every so often, so you may just have to deal with it.

If you're running SP1 (XP) then disable 802.whatever authentication in the properties because SP1 has issues with that. You may also try a different channel. Perhaps some network close to you is interfering. (Or a 2.4 gig phone or something)

Hello everyone,

I just bought a sony duo 11 tablet a while ago an I've noticed that whenever I'm on wireless, I get random ping spikes (From 40 ms to 200 ms) and it lasts for a couple seconds then disappears. I've tried other wireless at different places and still get the same results. I'm starting to worry that this may be a hardware issue, perhaps the wireless card is not working properly. Any help is greatly appreciated ! I also have all the latest updates for my drivers.

EDIT: I have a Intel(R) Centrino(R) Advanced-N 6235 wireless card and this is what I get when I ping google.com
