    For a couple of days now, my ping(and therefore internet) has gone through the roof and back down again relentlessly. For a moment, I have 50 ping, and then in the next I have no reply when using constant ping check on cmd. I have searched the internet several times over and have come to the conclusion that I need tech support. Specs:
    GTX 750 Ti 2 GB DDr3
    i7 4770
    8 GB RAM
    ... Pretty much everything from the Dell XPS 8700 with the better graphics card. I also have a McAfee subscription and the malwarebytes free protection services.
    I could really use help and a reply. Thank you for your time :)

    You should not constantly ping the same address; most firewalls have rules against that because it looks like a DOS attack and it cuts you off. If you have a problem with random loss of internet connectivity please say so and describe your problem in more details.
