Hey, I'm having these random internet lag spikes around every minute or so. It's only really noticeable when I'm playing games like counterstrike, hearthstone, or world of warcraft. It seems like my internet just cuts out for 5 seconds, freezes whatever game I'm playing, and then goes back to normal. I tried googling this but it seems like there's so many specific cases for different people it'd be hard to find one that'd work. What information would someone need to be able to diagnose this problem?

Run a speed test to see what you are speed is.  There are several available simply by Googling "speed test".  Your ISP probably has one.  If your speed isn't fast enough you could be running into buffering slowdowns.

 

Please download and install Farbar Service Scanner.  The download will begin immediately after clicking on the link.
 
When FSS opens you will see an image like the one below.

Place checks in all of the boxes and then click on Scan
 
When the Scan is complete a log similar to the one below will open.  Copy and then paste this in your topic.

 Try a tracert to Blizzard to see where the latency is occurring. See here for instructions.

 

 

Also, is the game actually "freezing"? Like you can't even exit or minimize the window(Windows Key + D)? If so, I would say it's more likly a GPU driver issue. If you have something streaming in background(pandora/youtube/etc) does it also lose internet when your game freezes? Are other computers on your network effected?
