Since I bought my new laptop, I've been experiencing occasional 'lag spikes' (for 3-7 seconds, the ping jumps to very high values, making the game unplayable during those moments)
I have an Asus G551JM gaming laptop, has everything installed (talking about drivers, including the wi-fi one), no viruses (I hope, I mean I have an antivirus software, anti malaware/adware/etc.), and it's in 'mint condition', never had any other problems with it.
I've been experiencing this problem in games like Dota 2, or Path of Exile (both of them require internet connection).
When the 'thing' occurs, the wi-fi graph 'spazzez out' (reaches pretty high values).
This does not happen on my PC though (the PC is connected to the router via cable, while the laptop uses wi-fi)
I think I've read somewhere something about the antivirus software, should I try disabling it?
Router: TP-LINK TL-WR841N
Distance from router to pc: about 6 metres.
