    So basically, when I turn my computer on in the morning, my download speed on speedtest is 96mbps, which is really good. But then I go to play Counter-Strike, I play for 30mins-1hour and I start to lag and my ping rises from around 10-20 to 100-200. I close the game and go on speedtest, and I nowget 100 ping and a download speed of 7mbps. My internet doesn't return to normal for numerous hours, and it affects all the devices in my household (both wired and those on wi-fi).

    So I then rang up Optus, who ran tests and decided to come and replace the modem, router and the switch . But the problem still persists, and it is getting really annoying. If anyone has a solution or any ideas, please let me know, as Optus said if replacing those didn't fix it, then there's nothing else they can do.

    (The new router is a Netgear CG3000v2)
