Latency issues in games
I have noticed some latency issues in the multiplayer games that I frequently play. My gaming PC is wired directly to a switch, which is connected directly to the router. Here are some of the troubleshooting steps that I've tried:
1. Power down router, modem, and networking switch for ~5 mins before powering back on
2. Run 'ping localhost -t' on my gaming PC to confirm that there are no issues with the NIC
3. Run 'ping 192.168.2.1 -t' on my gaming PC to confirm that there are no issues between the PC and the router
4. Performed some traceroute tests to different Rocket League servers, as well as Google and 184.108.40.206. I have attached the results to this post. None of the results seem to be particularly alarming, however the worst times do seem to get pretty bad. I know that doesn’t mean much, though, since a packet only has to perform poorly one time to show up in the worst column.
5. Opened the network graph in Rocket League to confirm that latency is spiking on a constant basis. See screenshot below.
6. Opened the network graph in Battlefield 4 and noticed that latency was consistently low, but packet loss would spike to 3.3-10%
Are there any additional troubleshooting steps that you would recommend to find the root cause of these latency issues?
