High latency ingame

The problem
When i join CS:GO and go play in a random server (this is the way it works) i might have normal latency around 30-50. A few minutes later or randomly hour-two the latency goes up to 150-200 and sometimes over 350 which make it unplayable. And there are peaks up to 999 for 1-2 minutes.

This often happens after 19:00 local time, but sometimes occues before, so its quite random i t

Another thing - in my country's servers the latency is around 5-10 which is perfect (goes down to 1). The problem is the outside ones.

Download speed remains good in all cases for outside Bulgaria and inside.

What i tried
I tried to restart the rooter - didnt work
I tried to reset the rooter settings and setup it again - didnt work
I tried to keep it shutdown at night and use it only when i need it. It did work i think, but i am not sure because the problem is quite random.
I tried to plug the interent cabel directly to the PC and the ping stays low. (that way works, but the problem remains, because i need the router to supply WiFi to the rest of the house)
I also changed the rooter. I bought new one and the problem remains.

Information about the setup
The rooter i use is TL-WDR3600
Running on Windows 7 Ultimate
The ISP installed fiber-optics recently, but its same as before the installment.

  1. Never mind, it turned out the problem was casued by other people connected to the WiFi network. Should have checked that earlier.
