Ping Spiking on Wireles

This happens universally, in all games, and in Windows. This may be related but also I have been getting "This Stub Recieved Bad Data" when trying to open programs occasionally. Yes, I uninstalled Nvidia audio drivers after I recently installed GeForce experience update (It started happening a day after this install). Below is a Ping test I did running "ping -t"


I use Wireless on an A6200 (Yes, I reinstalled drivers) and this does NOT happen on other devices in the house, including a PC right next to mine.
Other Specs:
i7-4770 (Stock)
GTX 750 Ti (Stock) (Running 1920x1080 @ 144hz, 1920x1080 @ 60hz)
120 GB SSD (OS), 1 TB WD HDD (Storage)
Windows 10 Home 64 Bit (Before Anniversary Update)
Yes I have tried turning it off and back on. Any help is appreciated, thank you Happy

The thing is, pings can spike on wireless.

Unless the machines are identical you can not expect same results. Drivers and hardware do vary.

If you feel like it, change to another make WiFi.

There was a long discussion about USB issues and in the end it was a forgotten motherboard driver. I take it that since you build and install your own you will check that.

This Didn't Happen Before

I understand that, but this is a new thing. Before it would happen make once or twice a day and was very mild. Now its once or twice a MINUTE and is quite literally, unplayable.

Speccy isn't letting me publish, error message when trying to connect to server but I uploaded a txt version here

Sadly that's not easy to use as Speccy.

I wonder why your machine won't allow the usual web posting.

Anyhow, I'd check on USB drivers or try other ports. Since the dump is just a mass of text and not in Speccy, I gave it a quick read but didn't do any research.
