My setup: Xbox using wired connection, laptop using wireless AC. Router is an Archer C9 with latest firmware. Everything works FLAWLESSLY 90 percent of the time, but once in a while, every 3 to 5 minutes, there is a HUGE lag spike and the stream gets garbled and input is ignored for about 5 seconds, then goes back to normal. When its working, its perfect. Super fast and responsive. Been playing Destiny from my laptop and there is NO lag at all most of the time, not even a second of input lag. But that little spike once in a while really is annoying.
Has anyone experienced this or have any ideas? I can't imagine something on my laptop suddenly using a whole bunch of bandwidth every few minutes. Also, my girlfriend plays the regular way (xbox on her tv) and never has any issues, nor have I when I used to be hooked up to a tv as well. Also, never noticed any lag spikes playing any other games that occurred at regular intervals.
Any help would be appreciated! Thanks!
