Hello, so basically I've been having these problems for about 1 week now, its just caught to the point where I'm done.

so I have LINKYS Wireless-N N300 Wifi Adapter, just got it brand new today, because I thought that would fix it.

But no, it just started happening 1 week ago.

Happens in all my games. But sometimes its fine sometimes its not.

I don't know what kind of router I have, but if you ask, ill be sure to find out (somehow)

Also here are my speednet Results.
Here are my Packet Loss Results

SpeedTest :

Packet Loss :

Note : My first ping test was fine, but then I did it again to make sure, nope still Packet Loss.

Note #2 If you could help, that would be great!

I am using a wifi Adapter, again had to metion that, I feel like I am missing something.

You need to test with a lan cable to determine where the issue might be.

It is highly likely it is just the fairly standard wireless interference issue. you can load inssider and see if you have a lot of competition for the radio channels. Not much you can do but try others but other people do the same thing which is why it works for a while and then has trouble many times.

This is why it always recommended to run on a ethernet cable to play games.
