THis was for a malware issue, and they tried to help with networking but suggested I try here.
Essentially in games such as League of Legends I will notice game freezes where my ping will spike to the 200-600 range. My buffering speeds on videos also has been stagnating more than normal as of late, but that could be another issue entirely since youtube seems to be unaffected.
I have switched to ethernet, a 50 ft cable as I was using a wireless adapter; there has been no changes from the switch and the issue persists to the same extent. I changed my routers channel also to try and alleviate the stress.
I will mention my roommates aren't experiencing the same sort of lag according to them.
Would yall be able to provide any advice?
