Very strange latency issue only affecting online gaming?


New Member

For the past week or two now I've been having very strange latency issues only in online multiplayer games. The latency is gone when playing single player/offline. I've ran maleware scans, I've uninstalled what I thought was the problem, I've closed/stopped processes...nothing is fixing this. I ran an internet test, but the linked site doesn't offer any servers of the ISP I'm with, so I ignored that reading.

The funny thing here is that in game, it says my ping is fine, my fps is fine...so where is the issue, exactly? There's only two people in my household, me and my roommate, and he is gone to work during the late nights. Never before have we had this issue, and we've even tested to see if one of us was the problem.

My internet is wireless and goes through a couple walls, but it has never been a problem before.

I'm at a loss as to what to do.
