So this problem only started recently, maybe a month or two ago. My download according to speedtest.net is 73 mbps and my upload being 7 mbps. It says my ping is only 9, but while playing games I have massive ping issues that make it completely joyless to play with friends. I'm guessing the ping is jumping really quickly, because any games that show ping only show me having a ping slightly higher than usual. I ran a tracert to 8.8.8.8 but I have no clue how to read what it gave me. The tracert says;

Tracing route to google-public-dns-a.google.com [8.8.8.8]
over a maximum of 30 hops:

1 355 ms 88 ms 71 ms 192.168.0.1

Trace complete.

Hops 1 and 10 have high pings according to this. I use a wireless connection but I'm very close to the modem so it's never given me any problems so far. I've tried different servers, but I'm playing with friends and they have no problems while I'm frozen on the spot and suddenly jump forward, or they stop moving and start jumping. Any help would be appreciated.
 
Tracert tend to not catch these problems but it did this time.

This shows you have massive issues between your PC and the router. This is extremely common on a wifi connection. It tends to be caused by interference in most cases it comes from neighbors also using wifi. It could have all the sudden started because a neighbor got a new router and is not using the same radio channels as you. The new tri-band routers use almost all the available channels so if someone buy one of those it pretty much interference with anybody else trying to use wifi.

You only hope to "fix" the wifi is to change the channels on the router or maybe move between 2.4g and 5g. You will have to get lucky there is no way to eliminate interference coming from outside your house.

Consider ethernet if there is any way possible or you might look into powerline networks.

Maybe, I have been using 5g for a while but I just got a new neighbor, they might be using 5G as well. I'll have to figure out how to make it work but I'll try using an ethernet cable.
