Have you tried bypassing the router and taking the machine directly to your ISP's modem?

Like in-game the maximum number of ping let say is 500. My normal ping would be 200-250 but I can spike to 500.

Connect your machine directly to your modem. This will eliminate any possible effect of the router (if any).

Connect the ethernet cable from the modem to the ethernet port of the computer.

But isn't connecting from the router to the cpu the same as connecting from the modemn to the cpu? Both of them give 100 mbps right?

Was only answering your previous question. Theoretically, should be same.

I doubt the router is the issue. You should talk to your ISP about your ping times.

Well, I am not ashamed to admit that I don’t know how to use a direct Ethernet connection on a Notebook PC as I’ve never tried it before. So with that said… I’d like to know if I simply plugged the Ethernet in, if it would “autodetect” the connection or else if I’d have to set up a LAN...
