Thanks for the help but I don't think it's my routers fault anymore. The orbis are doing great :). I bought a brand new nighthawk from costco and it has the same pattern of ping.


How odd!  What kind of device are you pinging from, are there any network switches between that device and the router, etc.?  It may be good to set things up in isolation, e.g., just the router and the device doing the pinging but not connected to the internet, and test ping the router from the device.  Slowly add other components to your network until you figure out what is causing the time spikes to start again.

Just finished troubleshooting and experimenting with everything I could. The thing that was causing it was actually the power extenders! When changing the router plug into an actual outlet in the wall the wifi was great. It was lightning fast. At least I know now.

What are these power extenders? Power cords or a dievice?

My bad didn't know what they were before. They're power strips.

Oh ok. So some bad power strips were the cause. Thank you for letting us know. Good find.

The bad packet loss is not coming from my gate since when pinging my gate the ping is fine but on sites like google it's really bad and the request times out soemtimes because of this packet loss

To clarify this is whenever another certain device is online.

What other devices do you have online and what are they doing when you see this problem?
