# What is wrong with my internets?!

For weeks now, I have been trawling the internet looking for answers to my intermittent packet loss that causes tremendous lag when I am gaming online on my laptop. I have trialled every step offered up by Microsoft (various resets in command prompt etc). I have tried updating/rolling back drivers. I have tried uninstalling/reinstalling the wireless-AC and PCIe controller. I have tried changing every god damn setting in the device manager/properties.

During my search I came across this software, and thought I'd give it a go (despite my wildly vast lack of understanding) so I ran it for a minute or so to see what occurred. Anyone that's interested I would be more than happy to send you a copy of what I saved on fileshark.

It is important to note that when I ping 8.8.8.8 from my mobile phone via the wireless, I never get a 'request timed out', yet when I do it from my laptop (whether through a wired connection or via wireless), it happens roughly every 20 seconds, with some periods being worse than others in terms of lag e.g. 2 or 3 packets dropping. Otherwise, my ping shows as good and stable, and streaming videos etc. is no problem (occasionally websites won't load for a short time, but then is fine).

This is what ipconfig /all shows.
