    Picked up a 4K/1060 2017” Razer Blade 14” a couple of weeks ago and finally got around to testing it as a gaming machine by playing ... Counterstrike 1.6 and Tribes 2 on a wireless LAN party with some friends. My friends were running old laptops or netbooks or Thinkpads- not gaming laptops - and were all fairing just fine.

    Myself, shiny new crazy gaming machine, had pings that would spike to 1000 and then drop or cause glitching/stuttering/freezing in the games.

    It’s been a while since I’ve PC gamed (since these games were modern!) so how can I go about troubleshooting where the problem is?

    Counterstrike 1.6 is the best version, for me atleast :heart:.

    We can start with the network settings as you were on wireless. Have you tried going wired when it happened? Also, was it a dual band router you guys were using? And was it running on 2.4gHz or 5gHz?

    I wasn't able to go wired as I didn't have a USB to Ethernet adapter, and it was running 2.4GHz (wasn't dual band). I don't think it was the router though - as I was the only one experiencing the spikes.

    Have you tried with a different network? If you can get your hands on an adapter, that would be awesome so we can isolate the issue. If you don't really need an adapter, you can just borrow one so you don't have to buy something just for troubleshooting :) .

    I think I can put this to bed. Tried with the router again wired/wireless and it was in fact the wireless that was causing the issues. I've tried wireless on another router and no issues were experienced.

    Thanks for thinking this through with me!
