I installed IIS to run a website from home and forwarded port 80 through my router and modem, now when I play video games online I am getting lag spikes where the network stops working for a few seconds every 30 seconds or so, which is ruining my online gaming experience, can someone explain to me why this is happening so I can correct it?
my priority is my gaming so I can uninstall IIS if it comes to that.

Certainly tuning IIS could help, but here are two simple tests before you do all that work.

1) See what happens when you go to DSLReports.com/speedtest without IIS running. If that test shows a high bufferbloat value, it could well explain your lagging.

2) Test to see if traffic from IIS is causing the latency spikes
  • Start with IIS turned off.
  • Starting pinging a host on the Internet (ping -n 10000 google.com)
  • Watch the ping times for a minute or two, notice how much the "time=" values jump around
  • Turn turn on IIS
  • Watch the ping times
  • Ctl-C to stop the long-running ping (the "-n 10000" sends 10,000 pings)
If the ping times jump around a lot when IIS is running, (and especially if DSLReports shows bufferbloat), it's likely that your router is causing the problem. Read "What to do about Bufferbloat?" at:
