I ran a ping test to google.com to see why my connection in games would always drop randomly and here is the output:
Pinging google.com [108.177.122.138] with 32 bytes of data:

Ping statistics for 108.177.122.138:
Packets: Sent = 33, Received = 33, Lost = 0 (0% loss),
Approximate round trip times in milli-seconds:
Minimum = 30ms, Maximum = 1538ms, Average = 156ms

I also ran a test on other computers and their ping was just fine, I'm stumped at this point and any help would be useful.
Thanks!

EDIT: After doing a few more ping tests I figured out that the spike in ping comes every 10 pings which means that it could be a program or something continuously pinging

Look in Task Manager and Resource Monitor to determine what all is running and what resources are being used.

May be some buggy program trying to update or simply "phone home".

Network Tab and the graphical charts may be helpful towards identifying some culprit.
