    High ping spike (2500+) every 10 seconds


    Hello,

    Since one of the last WIndows updates, every 10 seconds my ping will jump from ~20 to over 2500. It is very consistent. I feel like I've tried every suggested solution the internet has to offer, from resetting my router, to a full Windows 10 reinstall/repair. The problem persists.

    I am on wifi via a USB receiver in my desktop. I've been set up this way for over a year and haven't had any issues since the update on Nov 14th (roughly, give or take a day). Since then its been a problem 24/7.

    Please help, I am at a loss.

    Does this happen if you ping the router's IP address? Have you tried connecting via Ethernet instead of WiFi?

    Yes, also then. I have not tried connect to Ethernet yet because I need to go buy a 50' cable then and run it all the way through my house, so I'm hoping I can get the wifi back running, with Ethernet being a last resort.

    The wifi on my laptop (windows 8) works fine with no ping spikes.

    It is not you, it is a problem with that IP. I am getting bad ping times also. Must be a bad VM/Server or Router on Google's side. Send the info to their support and see if they can find out why it is happening on their end.

    This is the IP where the high ping starts: 209.85.241.43

    Something is wonky in their Co-LoC out by Wichita. If it just started, could be weather related.

    Ping is never a good test and if you keep pinging its a DOS attack and lots of devices will act on it and drop packets. What does a tracert show as that often shows a faulty router along the route

    So I picked up an Ethernet cable and that fixed the ping issue while plugged in. So that changes things. Might it be that my WiFi receiver/driver is no longer compatible with something in the new update? There are no driver updates available for the receiver, so if this is a possibility, the only way to know would be to buy a new receiver and try it out...

    What WiFi adapter are you using? Do you see this issue with other traffic (e.g. downloading a large file)?

    Is it always 10 seconds between the ping spikes? I wonder if there's some app running in the background that's messing with the adapter (for instance, scanning for other access points).

    As a long shot you can try disabling USB selective suspend: How to disable Windows 10's 'USB selective suspend' setting | Windows Central
