Starting a few weeks ago I had a run of odd lag issues but seem to have gotten them all worked out now.

First started with warping whilst on a wired connection. This was solved by my isp boosting the signal from the cab.

But then I had to pull up my lan cable due to decorating. Whilst then using wireless, there was some more regularly occuring lag beyond what would normally happen on a wireless connection. I sorta put up with it for a while.

Cue new modem/router for an unrelated issue, plus upgrading cpu/mobo/ram and a fresh linux install, with a small hope well that might sort the lag out let's see!

After the rebuild/reload, I was getting fps hits in tf2, after 1 round, fps would drop to 18-22 ish, input lag was very noticable. First thought, heat! But no..
Solved this one by launching tf2 with -autoconfig once, to reset all settings, then retweaked and all is good once again.

But the wireless lag continued. Narrowed it down to being regular, for 12 seconds of every 2 minutes, without fail, ping times would rise to 3-500, then fall again. It was only happening on my desktop, not any other devices in the house, and didn't follow the wifi adaptor when testing that elsewhere too. But it would happen on my own isp, or borrowing the neighbours collection, so it was narrowed down to my pc.

Turns out to be caused by network-manager rescanning for all available AP's every 2 minutes, solved by a quick change to an alternative.

From to !


tl;dr : I dun fixed it!

I've had some rather odd lag too even though my ping is pretty ok (45 usually, 180 at worst)

Basically everything would freeze for a while as though the server timeout thing started up in the corner (except it doesn't), then suddenly I'm in the middle of it all with players running around me as though only the visual part lagged but the game carried on.

Often during the freeze, I'd start vibrating too.

Not sure if it's a server thing (only happening to me because of my connection) or something with my connection.
My ping status doesn't come into it.

It isn't very common but it did happen a couple times last night.
