recently my internet spikes every 10-15 mins and everything becomes really slow or stops working. IE stops working completely, if im playing online games like dota and im hosting the game, everyone in my game has pings of around 500ms when they normally have a ping of around 60-90ms. These spikes only last for around 10 secs. I have read a post below that had a similar problem to me but it didnt help. Also whenever i do get these spikes it does not effect my downloads. I have gotten these spikes while i am dling stuff from the net and browsing on IE at the same time and then my IE would suddenly stop working but my dls would continue without having slower speeds Any advise is much appreciated

Hello butterrs and welcome to What the Tech!

Could you run a speedtest for me at SpeedTest.Net.
Do you know how much Download and Upload speed your provider gives you?
Exactly what sort of downloads are you doing? Torrents?

Regards,
Olrik

Hey Ztrucker, A speedtest result will give us an idea of what the connection will be capable of. Aside from that you can compare it to the speeds the provider promised. Regards, Olrik

butterrs, since the same problem occurs on both computers, try removing the router and connect directly to the internet, see if the problem still occurs.
