Hello GeekZone users,

In the past when I played League of Legends I would experience pings of 137-160, which is playable. This has been the case for me until this Friday of which I have been experiencing ping spikes of up to 2,000, which isn't playable. Considering the enjoyment that I have for this game and money that I have invested into it, I would really like to resolve this issue as soon as possible. I am not sure what is particularly inducing such tremendous lag. I do not experience any notable lag when using Skype and YouTube. My friends who similarly play League aren't lagging so I am certain that the issue roots in my connection.

If anyone has any suggestions/and or possible solutions to my problem that would be awesome. Thanks for your time.

 Try doing a ping -t command in command prompt to your routers ip address and see if the latency spikes very high, on wired it should be 1ms or <1ms, wireless probably under 10ms.

Like "ping -t" you can find your router's ip address by doing an ipconfig command in command prompt and it will be there next to "default gateway".

Are you using wireless? Why is the ping to your router 10 or 16? that doesn't look right

By the way, I just remembered that the modem was recently moved upstairs. Yes, I am connecting wi-fi and I assume that this is causing the spikes.

Would that be a reasonable assumption?

Ahh yes... you should always do speed tests over wired connections not wifi.

And if you changed something, change it back and see if it goes back to the way it was :)
