I have been experiencing high ping lately and I can not figure out why. Over the past month or so my ping has drastically dropped, it was at a high of 40-50, but now it is stuck at anywhere between 80-120 with constant spikes to anywhere between 300=400, and sometimes even reaching into the thousands. This has made it impossible to game and it has made using any other thing on the internet slow. I recently had a technician come to my house to see what the problem is, and he said the issue was just a bad connection. But whenever I use an Ethernet cable and plug my laptop into the modem, I end up with the same issues of around 100 ping with massive spikes. While checking my ping on speedtest.com it says that my ping is fine around 55, but when I go to fast.com my ping is at 110-120. I was wondering if there was anything anyone can do to help out or try and tell me what to do to fix the problem.
Is that wired or wireless? I see latency inside your network. If possible, disable IPv6 and post a new tracert.
Besides that, I also see some ingress in the 700-800Mhz range. Can you explain how the coaxial gets from the street to your modem? Splitters? Amps? Etc.
Here is the tracert without IPv6 to Google.com

And I actually have no idea how it gets to my modem, can you tell me how to check that or figure it out?

Are you wired to the router? If so, there is something going on with your network. What model router/gateway do you have? That should be no more then 1 ms for wired
no this is on wireless, i can go hook my laptop up with an Ethernet cord though
If you could. Looking at your signal levels again, even though there is some slight oddities, it isn't causing any uncorrectables, which means it shouldn't be effecting service. Nevermind causing the kinds of problems your describing. I think it's something else. What model router or gateway do you have? Please describe how your network is set up.
