    So recently I have noticed some insane ping spikes to the router spiking every 5 seconds upwards to 2500ms.

    Im not to savvy with networking but believe this is as a result of the it continuously trying to search for other wifi networks. I can temporarily fix this by using the CMD command telling it to stop searching for the wifi signals but that doesnt seem like a right way of fixing it.

    "netsh wlan set autoconfig enabled=no interface="Wireless Network "


    Does anyone know how to fix this?

    Prior to this acting up I havent changed anything. and it seems to only happen on my desktop but not my laptop.

    Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks

    Is your desktop connected via Ethernet, or just wireless?

    I would say download the latest driver for the wireless card, then uninstall the current driver and install the new one.

    are you able to connect Ethernet by chance?

    If not, then probably i suspect a hardware failure and to confirm this is to purchase a USB wireless adapter and disable your current one to see if you get the same issues.

    let's try this:


    TCP/IP stack repair options for use with Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8/8.1 and Windows 10


    For Windows 8 or Windows 10

    To open a Cmd Prompt or an Administrator Cmd prompt from the Desktop.

    Use Windows + X Keys together and choose Command Prompt (Admin) from the list.

    Or Right click on the windows icon - bottom left hand side - A menu appears - choose Command Prompt (Admin)


    For windows version, XP, Vista, W7

    Hold the Windows key and press R

    Now type CMD

    Now press Enter to open a command prompt box (A new dialogue box - black with white font, will appear on screen ):

    In the command prompt window that opens, type the following commands:


    Note: Type only the text in bold and red for the following commands.


    • Reset WINSOCK entries to installation defaults: netsh winsock reset catalog and press enter
    • Reset IPv4 TCP/IP stack to installation defaults. netsh int ipv4 reset reset.log and press enter
    • Reset IPv6 TCP/IP stack to installation defaults. netsh int ipv6 reset reset.log and press enter
    ReStart (reboot) the machine.


    If you receive the message

    The requested operation requires elevation.

    Then please open the command prompt as administrator - as requested above

    Start> Programs> Accessories> and right click on Command Prompt, select "Run as Administrator" to open a command prompt box

    (A new dialogue box - black with white font, will appear on screen )

    Please note and post back - if you receive the following message :-

    Resetting , failed. - This error will occur with windows 10 , so ignore.

    Access is denied. - This error will occur with windows 8 and windows 10 , so ignore.

    But running TCP/IP reset still can resolve issues , even with the above errors.
