I bought i second hand computer last week, it's working great for what i want it for but im having one issue, i cant do anything that requires a stable ping i.e gaming.
This computer didn't come with a wireless card so i bought and Ethernet cable to run along my house. With that i would get major lag spikes.
So i then thought it could be the length of the cable slowing it down, so i bought a usb TP-Link wireless dongle. Got the same result. I've tried using a wifi repeater and that hasn't helped either.
All other devices connected to my modem/router (its two in one) don't have this issue. This is being a really inconvenient issue as i spend a lot of time on games such as Rust and league that require my internet to be smooth and reliable. All help is extremely appreciated and yes i have the 192.168.1.1 password (i changed it) and yes all my drivers are updated and i uninstalled-reinstalled them too.
