Before you think it is my specs are my wifi speed I will prove that those aren't the answers. I know my specs didn't cause the problem because I can run Skyrim And Battlefield bad company on high settings with about 30-60 fps. I kno my internet is not it because we just upgrade it and when I did I speed test the results were ping - 10 download speed - 54 Mbps and my upload speed - 11 mbps.

what router and network adapter card/antenna do you have?
And those are all private game servers you're playing on, where do you live and where are the servers you're trying to play on?

I am not playing on private severs, I use Xfinity, I live in Pittsburgh, and I am trying to play on USA severs. ( at least on battlefield, I don't know about the other games, but the people on the other games speak American.) I am still trying to find out what router I have. Also I was playing battlefield last night and my ping was about 250-400. don't know if that even means anything.

When you bring up task manager and you're not doing anything (no internet browsing no games) what does your network activity tab look like?
I'm starting to wonder if you have viruses/adware/malware that are eating up your connection...
Get MalwareBytes, it's the best virus cleaner software, but it doesnt protect against new ones, just get like AVG or something afterwards.

Ahh, it should be under Performance > Ethernet (or Wireless?) and the bottom you should see Open Resource Monitor. That will allow you to see how much internet activity is being generated.

But, just as a "why the hell not," go download and run MalwareBytes, it very well might be you have a virus.
