Hi there I recently was cleared of a trojan at the 'Am I infected Forum' after I suspected I had a trojan because I was experiencing huge lag spikes in League of Legends from 40 ping to over 2000.

 

At the end of the post boopme told me to come here to get my networking. He said he saw a lot of cable providers as the issue and told me to come here to get it fixed.

 

The link to the post is here http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/520233/i-need-help-removing-trojan/?p=3259364

 

Thank you

You really cannot do much about lag spike, between you and servers.  Everyone is going to see spiking in ping times, along the path from Point A to Point B.

Open a command prompt and type tracert 216.52.241.254  <- that is a LoL server and what tracert does is traces the route your frames have to travel to get to the server and back.  So while it is an A to B trip it has to go through A.1, A.2, A.3 etc to get to B. And anywhere along there can be a bottleneck.

None of those are great...but #3 and #4 look terrible. And if you are on Virgin Media? then it really sucks cause those 2 are still on their network.

Has this been happening since the patch? LOL always has lag spikes around or close to patch updates.

 

I found this on Reddit, see if it helps you.

Sorry, those lag spikes are on your ISP's network. There is little that will help that. That link that Chris posted, the first one might help if you are wireless. The second one, I have no idea about. I've read it's just to download the game but I don't know. You can change the DNS servers on your PC to the google servers that are listed or OpenDNS's servers 208.67.222.222 and 208.67.220.220 but not sure that is going to help either. If you repeat the tracert to the LoL server is it still that bad?
