This is doing my head in.
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.
