Randomly my internet will cut out and the ping to my router will skyrocket when I test it with "ping 192.168.0.1 -t"
It can last from 2 seconds to about 15 seconds, and it happens at random times. It's happened to me when playing online games, when downloading, or even when just browsing the internet. It has also happened right as the computer turned on. My computer is the only computer this happens to, and I'm pretty sure it doesn't happen to me when I boot into safe mode. I'm using a Rosewill EasyN4 router with the newest firmware and a TPlink TL-WN722N adapter.

I've run tons of virus scans including malwarebytes, superantispyware, eset, and spybot, and they all came back clean.
My signal strength is pretty good, I'm not that far from the router, I'm using wireless N, and I'm on channel 8 which I'm pretty sure no one else in the area is using.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Here's an example, but this isn't even close to how bad it gets sometimes

You can enter the following into the command line.
netstat -b


This will list all programs and their connections.
Cross-referencing this and the timestamps/patterns in your ping may help diagnose if a certain program is causing this.

Out of curiosity, are you using the 5 GHz or the 2.4 GHz wireless?

Ok, I was just thinking if it was on 5, it might be conflicting with wireless phones (if you even have any).

Looks like you might have some "free loaders" to bog youe network down .... you either reset your router and chang the PW ... see if it helps .

Just for the fun of it ...use the program calls "Who is on my wifi" to see if any unknown connections .

How old is your router ..?

My router is like 6 months old, it's possible my neighbors are stealing it but I have a pretty strong password with WPA2 encryption. If it was my neighbors wouldn't the other computers on my network be affected?

i would start by downloading inssider. its a free program to check for channel conflicts (among other things)
if you and one of your neighbors use the same channel the routers will be wrestling with eachother for an opening to send and receive.

this program will let you see what channels are used and how strong the signal received is.

watch this video first:



then download the program here: http://www.metageek.net/products/inssider/download/

switch channel on your wifi router to the 1, 6 or 11 with the lowest interference.

hth!

I tried your suggestion and switched the channel but it happened again just minutes after I did that. I've also tried changing the channel many times in the past.

What ESET software package do you have installed? You might wanna check your security features and protection softwares installed as they may interfere otherwise since you've mentioned on downloading and playing online games. You can remove spybot as it is not primarily needed IMO.

It's the newest version of ESET smart security 5. You might be right, but I think ESET is the only thing actively running.
