Ping issues in games and on and off packet loss

  1. Hello there :D

    I am still having issues with my internet(my last thread:https://www.techspot.com/community/...uter-on-the-same-network.193353/#post-1317716)

    When im in games, its most noticeable in league of legends. I get lag where ill be clicking to move somewhere and it doesnt register for a few seconds. It lags in all my other games too and I disconnect in alot o f them. I fear it is packet loss. When I check for packet loss on teamspeak those top 3 numbers are all 0, other times the first and 3rd are 16% and other times there all similar numbers like u see in the picture. Ive done ping tests on pingtest.net and sometimes I get )% sometimes I get 1% and sometimes I get like 16%. On and off packet loss? I didnt think it was possible....what could be the problem? Faulty ethernet? bad router? because I havent a clue. Here is a pathping to google(theres 3) and a ics netlyzr test. these are from my computer, ill do some of other computers in my household too. I have removed some ip address for obvious reasons :D

    hes a second one: http://n1.netalyzr.icsi.berkeley.edu/summary/id=43ca253f-27150-35eb4060-b4a8-4f49-8025 for the same computer and another http://n1.netalyzr.icsi.berkeley.edu/summary/id=43ca253f-27150-7454b852-4dc1-4319-9072

    My Mums computer decided it doesnt like java and wont run ics netalyzr.

    My computer is on Ethernet but the laptop is on wifi.

    So, do you guys have any idea what is going on? is it my computer, the router or what? Any other info u need just ask.

    Thanks in advance :D

    Contact your ISP to open a case on your account. Say you have lag and packet loss.

    It could also be your modem or router. Replace with a spare and test, if possible.

    Hey stickman, thanks for the reply. Do I definetly have packet loss? on both computers ive tested?

    how likely is it that the issues with my internet are caused by a faulty ethernet or motherboard?

    Your tests indicate packet loss. The issue is just as likely to be faulty device as it is a fault with ISP. It doesn't cost anything to ring them up, so I'd start with that.
