Hi.. I am unable to trace the high latency issue since my ISP has shown me a complete routing map of my IP and all the possible routes that it takes while I game online. 


One thing they asked me to do is turn off the windows firewall, my security product firewall protection and my router firewall disabled too. 


How bad all these things contribute to high latency issues? 


I have a fiber to home connection and a 100mbit package. 



Anyone here can help? 


PS: Internet runs smooth, pings are always good on most of the games except for Rainbow Six siege.

Firewalls can be the issue but it shouldn't be.


There are other reasons why you get the lag in gaming


1. Hardwired over WIFI

2. Restart your modem/router

3.Close any programs that use bandwidth...ex: Dropbox

4. If the Firewall is misconfigured this can also cause the issue.
