I've recently moved in to a new place with a friend. He's had issues with online games disconnecting seemingly randomly.

After I moved in (using my own computer) I also began to experience the seemingly random latency spikes and disconnects.

We use a Nighthawk RX6 8000 as our router.

 

I have set up a static IP on the router for my system and port forwarded for the two main games I play and have had issues with (guild wars 2 and warframe)

 

Additionally I have set the router to Open Nat filtering.

 

Even with all this done I still will disconnect from the two games pretty frequently.

My PC is Windows 10 desktop that is connected by wire to the router and he uses a Windows 8.1 laptop connected via 5ghz wireless

 

At this point I don't really know what else I can do to troubleshoot the issue and am just looking for any possible fixes to end this frustration.

You might need to speak with your ISP as it could be a line issue or the service they are providing.

Ugh i was hoping to avoid that, they apparently charge 5 bucks a month for a static IP. How that even works is beyond me.

I will update once I speak with my ISP though
