This is doing my head in.

 

Here's pingplotter:

That's just between my PC and the router!

 

This is on a fresh install of Windows 10. Each time one of these spikes happens, I get a lag spike in online games and it also shows up in Internet speed tests. It's ruining online gaming and it started a couple of days ago out of the blue.

 

There's a near identical machine sat next to it, also on Windows 10, that does not show this behaviour. Same wireless connection, same router, same ISP.

 

Running a Linux live distro from USB does not produce these results.

 

I've tried forcing the wireless adapter to the ac protocol. I have tried adding a "ScanWhenAssociated" option to the registry. I have tried using the wireless adapter from the other computer.

 

Does anyone have any further suggestions on how to resolve this?

 

I can't try a wired connection at the moment. I'm nearly certain it's a Windows 10 thing as I don't have the issue on a fresh 8.1 install, either. Sadly, I need Windows 10.

 There's a so-called power saving setting deep within the weeds of the Control Panel's Power applet you should check.  Go to

Control Panel -> Power -> Change Plan Settings -> Change Advanced Power settings -> Wireless adapter settings -> Power Saving Mode.  Change both settings there to Maximum Performance.  MS added this setting in Win 8, but it had a default of Maximum Performance.  But in 10 the "clever devils" at MS changed the default.  

 

 Good luck.


Make regular full system backups or you'll be sorry sooner or later.

In addition to what Niweg suggested does both computer have identical Security Suites?

Hi,

 

I have found that TomTom MyDrive Connect has a very serious bug that causes huge lag spikes every 12-14 seconds. It only happens over wi-fi and is due to their buggy software doing a wifi scan whenever it checks in. You can turn off MyDrive connect and the problem should go away. I know it sounds bizarre, but it is 100% reproducible on my laptop - just ping google.com continuously and you will see the ping spike as regular as clockwork.

 

If this IS your problem, please reply, so that other folks know. I believe there is a big and very unexpected problem being caused my TomTom software, and it has been going on for many months now, in spite of it being reported to them.

Forget I'd made this topic here too. It was Roccat's Swarm software that you need to use with the Nyth.
