Sure, but these will be guesses.
- Go into your NIC properties, Power Management, ensure that "allow the computer to turn off this device to save power" is NOT selected.
- Go into the Advanced settings, and turn on Flow Control (or turn it off if it is ON). I would normally advise to have it off when online gaming, but turning it on may give you a more consistent latency rate.
- Ensure "Interrupt Moderation" is off.
- Try different duplex settings. This setting can have a big impact on latency, and it is not always obvious which one to choose. By default, you probably have it set to auto-negotiate. Normally you would want the fastest full duplex available for your NIC, but I have seen instances where setting it to fastest half duplex greatly improved ping times.
