From past few days while gaming online i noticed ping spikes, normally i used to get ping <20ms but from few days i get ping spikes till 500ms that really destroys the gameplay.
Afterwards i noticed that i am connected to two networks, so i did "ipconfig" to check my default gateway and saw that i have two default gateways
Screenshot
when i pinged 192.168.0.1(my routers ip address) i got these results
Screenshot
but when i pinged the other gateway 172.31.29.1 the results were normal with 1ms ping.
Now i dont know what is the problem! i searched on the web but no clue please help me how to solve this as i am very frustrated.

hey, having multiple default gateways can cause connectivity issues, the second gateways is there encase the primary gateway fails. first try doing a ipconfig /release then do a ipconfig /renew on your cmd. if that fails then you must delete one. go to cmd and type "route print" then type "route delete 172.31.29.1" also i believe you can go to you Control Panel\Network and Internet\Network Connections then click the network and hit properties ipv4 and click advance and remove the default gateway
