Attempting to pin-point lag source ; currently impossible.

I have been randomly getting sudden ping spikes (from usually 40 and below to over 1000 and even 2000) and I have been unable to identify the source.

The software I use (Pingplotter) tells me that I have 100% packet loss on all servers I go on… which is impossible since I actually get a response on my game.
However, when it comes to pingplotter, the server itself seems not to be responding to it… I do not know how to fix this problem and although getting an ethernet cable fixed it for maybe 3 months, it suddenly came back…

I am starting to wonder if it could be someone within my area just messing with my wifi :/

Anyone can help?

    Well have you tried connecting it with a cable to see if that fixes it?

    You are getting the 100% loss because amazon servers disable the ability to ping the server itself. So naturally you will always see 100% loss / no response.

    I assume you mean an ethernet cable? I have. Only worked for roughly 3 months...

    Cut power to your router for a minute to let it reset itself?

  • i recently switched to EU. my ping was averaging 170 stable for days. suddenly, today, my ping is so bad it's displayed as 0. ping is ~50,000 ms. terrible.
