Pretty much the instant things go weird for me. I restart everything in my life.

I once had a problem with my router where I got disconnected every few seconds/minutes

Complained to AOL because at the time AOL messenger was the app constantly reconnecting. Then I realised I was lagging bad in games etc.

 

Formatted my PC, thought, THIS will fix it, must be software cuz I had a VPN installed a while back.

 

Still happened, I was so angry, been dealing with it for 3 months.

 

My mum was like.... 'could it be your ethernet cable?'

 

..... like....wow....shes 70 and im 30 and work in IT.... and it WAS the friggin ethernet cable had frayed and all I had to do...was get a new one.

Yeah, it actually works & weird if you suddenly encountered unusual high ping spike. Though I did do speedtest before turning off the router, it turns out the ISP gave me new IP address after putting my router offline for the whole night then ping of most of my games went normally. Guess the ISP does require me to change IP address.

My level 1 check is rebooting the computer and/or router, that fixes 90% of the problems.

I use our power cabling for networking in our house, via powerline converters. Those need to be reset now and again, which fixes another 9%. In most cases, all lights on the converter are still “green”, but the connection drops anyway.

I have two identical routers, configured identically. Afer I tried the above, I switch the routers. If that doesn’t fix it, I know the problem is outside my house and I have to talk to my provider. That’s maybe 1% of the problems.

Not normal.

You can run ping plotter to see whats happening.

If you don't have any traffic prioritizing software running on your machine it could be internal processes grabbing bandwidth.

No, not normal, can you even play the game?

For many server in your country you should see pings under 10ms.

I’d try this first: http://www.speedtest.net/

A ping plotter is the superior tool, it shows the latency along the way your packets travel. However, you need to know a little bit about networking to figure our how to use the information the ping plotter gives you.
