    Ethernet connection is spiking, disconnecting and reconnecting

    Hi everyone.

    I have a problem with my internet connection. First, I've tried a PCI Wi-Fi card and a repeater and nothing change.

    My computer have a problem with the internet connection. When I play games like Counter-Strike, I'm spiking and I have some rollback every 5s. Here's a picture of my internet connection in the task manager: Click image for larger version.

    As you can see, I'm spiking alot. Sometimes, my PC disconnect from the router (even when it's wired).

    What I tried:
    - Recovery
    - Flush DNS
    - Renew IP
    - Uninstall/Install network drivers and adapter
    - Uninstall/Install general drivers

    And... nothing worked, except one thing:
    Fix network connection issues - Windows Help

    • Type netsh winsock reset and press Enter.
    • Type netsh int ip reset and press Enter.
    • Type ipconfig /release and press Enter.
    • Type ipconfig /renew and press Enter.
    • Type ipconfig /flushdns and press Enter.
    It's working for like 30 minutes and then I'm spiking and lagging again. I suppose it's a DNS/IP problem. I need to do it again every time I want to play 30 minutes. Anyone have a idea?


    PS: When I'm browsing on chrome, I don't see the spike effects, only when I play or skype.

    Try, changing your DNS router to and These are the public google DNS routers. I had gaming issues and changing to these DNS fixed my problem, Internet problems with my ISP.

    There is nothing that can fix a server that is congested or hosted from a home Internet connection. You are always going to see lag when playing any online games on a computer.
