Ping spikes

hi, couple of days ago i started online competitive games again and noticed that im having some ping spikes to my router, and this happens only when im on wifi
since im using laptop, cant plug eth all the time and have to play with wifi sometimes. also, my router isnt far away and its just beside of my laptop

here’s 50seq of ping results to my router :

i’ve tried sudo ethtool -K wlan1 tso off but didn’t help

:face_with_raised_eyebrow:

Wifi is not reliable (due to e.g. EM interference), therefore use Ethernet.

i know its not reliable, but its not stable (as it should be !) and im sure its becuz of smth in linux cuz everything working fine in windows
and, for some reasons i can’t connect eth all the time

windows != linux

not reliable == not stable

ethernet != not reliable || not stable

i thought this forum is for helping others not forcing them too use the thing they can’t lol
if i could play with eth i wouldnt create this thread in the first place

peace :slight_smile:

But you are being helped

Wireless is not something to rely on to get a stable and reliable connection

Not to point out the obvious but presumably the OP has a reason they can’t use ethernet. Like maybe there is no practical way for them to get a cable to where they need to be at that point in time. Although, it is a little weird that the laptop is right beside the router and can’t be plugged in.

That being said, people over over the world play games reliably over wi-fi on a regular basis.

@rootiens, intermittent network problems over wi-fi aren’t any fun to troubleshoot. Can we see inxi -Fxxxxz to see if there is something obvious there? Also what model is your router?(assuming that is the device providing your wi-fi).

Lastly, it is possible that there is some type of intermittent interference. Have you done a wi-fi scan to evaluate channel overlap?

thank you for your kind response.

the reason i cant use it all the time is the holder of lan port (dunno how to explain, its a piece of plastic below my LAN port which holds the lan cable) has some problems and its not hard as it should be, so sometimes LAN disconnects and i cant use it all the time like during games, uploading stuff etc etc

about third part no i haven’t, theres only two wifi networks around me (or i have signal to it), mine and my neighbors

Not their fault the answer isn’t what you wanted to hear.
Wireless is, and likely always will be, way less reliable than wired.
Do tell, why can you not use Ethernet? At this point, your story simply doesn’t make sense.

Seriously. Recreational gaming on wireless, sure. Competitive? You really think your competitors are going to leave the advantage that a wired connection has unused?

You could try this option. Not sure it will help or not. Create the following file if it doesn’t exist and add the options below this.

/etc/modprobe.d/ath10k_pci.conf

Add

options ath10k_pci nohwcrypt=1

thank you for ur response, it didn’t help

I guess you could try changing your dns servers?

but im pinging my local router, does it help?

also, while googling, saw some threads that people had problem with networkmanager (debian-based distros tho), and when they switched to connman that fixed problem. is it possible that its the same with Arch-based distros?

I really don’t know anything about connman but it is in the Arch Wiki so i assume yes.

If you ever try it again maybe try these kernel parameters.

I also seem to remember that some WiFi modules tend to “time-out” into lo-power mode…Don’t remember which ones–I would find out what you have exactly in your lappy & run a “google” search on it. I had to do some config work a couple of years ago on a ThinkPad I had…the signal would just go away at times & the WiFi card was in lo-power mode.
