Hi! I would like to first start by apologizing for my overall lack of knowledge regarding computers. This is my first post on the website and the first real research I've done regarding computer issues.


Anyway, a few months ago my computer began to randomly disconnect from the internet approximately every 10 minutes. This wasn't too big of a deal but it was obviously pretty annoying. A couple weeks later my computer began to have ping spikes. After running an online ping test I noticed during upload times (there was a graph) the speed would spike to 0 then back up to a normal speed. Being an avid gamer, this was a problem for being effective (League of Legends namely). I did more research into the issue and determined my computer was the only one doing these problems. I also connected my computer directly to my router using an Ethernet cable and all of my ping issues seemed to vanish.


I have received a few theories but would like them to be confirmed before I spend any money on this. So my question to you guys is, what could be causing this problem, and how would I fix it?


I would be happy to provide any additional information you need.

Thank you in advance!

What are the theories you have about what the problem could be?
