Hey, I've been playing a game called League of Legends (LoL) and while it's been enjoyable, it becomes infuriating at times when my ping jumps from 50-60 to 700-800. This happens seemingly at random for anywhere from 5 seconds to an hour. The game is simply unplayable at that ping, and I was wondering if it may be a problem with my computer, since when checking other computers in the house, they don't seem to have this problem.

If you're wireless, try playing wired and see if that resolves. There are still so many interference issues with Wireless that gaming on it can be bad.

If wired, read on:
First, try swapping your ethernet card's port in the router with another port. If they continue, it could be something with your network card.
Finally, there exists the possibility that some other unscrupulous players are attempting to ping or lag you so as to gain an advantage. Sorry, but it happens.
