Online Gaming Has Frequent Lag Spikes w/ 500mbps Spectrum Ethernet
Hello everyone, I switched to Spectrum a few months ago when I moved into my new place. I've been really happy with it thus far until I noticed one issue I didn't have with AT&T before on the same computer:
When trying to play any faster-paced games online, I experience lag spikes/stuttering often enough to make it virtually unplayable. I ran a popular bufferbloat test that consistently showed a latency increase of around 70ms while downloading, so I suspect that may be where the problem lies. I do not use wi-fi at all, just ethernet with Spectrum's provided modem on the 500mbps plan. The most common suggestion I see online is to get a router designed to handle this type of problem, but do any of you have further advice?
EDIT: I should also mention that I've only tried this in the evenings (PST) and am not sure if it's better in the morning or afternoon yet.
Thank you in advance,
