constant ping spikes making gaming impossible as well as watching live streams

image.png

I have been experiencing these ping spikes for roughly 2 months now depending on the time of day they can get worse or better. I use a WiFi extension disk and at first thought that i was too far away from it so i moved my laptop closer and even tried connecting to it via an Ethernet cable put to my disappointment the ping spikes still remained. I honestly think that the last resort to get rid of these constant spikes would be  changing  providers,  so any help with this issue would be much appreciated

did you also try connecting your laptop  direct to router with ethernet cable to see if that solved the problem

Yes, but at least you will know if the problem is the WiFi (which it probably is) and can do something about it by running an Ethernet cable to your room.

i am still receiving the spikes even with Ethernet plugged  directly into the wifi, these spikes usually start at around 7-8pm and can last past midnight

Did you actually connect your laptop direct to the ethernet port on the hub not the WiFi disc and see if that solves the problem

Which probably won't help, depending where the problem lies.
