    Ping spikes to 300+ occasionally


    Hi, I am on a laptop and when I leave my laptop on for an extended period of time, the ping suddenly spikes to 300+ when I'm playing games and whatnot. Internet is completely unusable when it reaches that problem. I'm pretty sure that my laptop is the problem because whenever that happens, I just restart the adapter and it calms down and is perfectly fine again. If any other information is required, please tell me thanks in advance
