Massive lag spikes

Recommended Posts



I just moved to a new place (Which have a much better than my last place) and ever since then I've been expirencing massive lag spikes


I'm using a wireless router with an external antenta (Both new from TP-link) but I can't get the game to run stably...


Here's a screenshot from my speedtest:

If your wifi router supports this, you can try to split the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz bands to prevent automatic swapping and then connect your PC to the 2.4 GHz band. This band is a lot more stable than 5 GHz (but has a lower bandwith (only 150 Mbps)).


If you are still having spikes, then just use a cable. This is what I am doing too, because there are like 30 wifi networks from surrounding flats available at my flat and it is impossible to get a stable connection even at 2.4 GHz, because all the networks are interfearing each other. If I use wifi, I have a ping of 25ms, but lag spikes to 3000ms every few seconds.
