So I recently upgraded my computer and ever since then my ping in Battlefield 3 ( up to 1200 ping!) planetside 2, borderlands 2 and even castle crashers make the games unplayable when using my wireless usb adapter (do have drivers updated in both router and for adapter). However, when i play Blops 2 and World of Warcraft my ping is extremely low 30-55 and never spikes playing smoothly which i found odd. I've been using an ethernet cable for the time being but the wire gets in the way and would prefer the wireless. I'm not the most knowledgeable about computers so was wondering if anyone had any tips or an idea as to what it could be. Any other info needed just let me know, it's pretty annoying since before the upgrade things seem to work fine on all games. I seem to be able to download at 2mb/sec on steam and everything else except gaming wirelessly seems to be fine.Thanks in advance for any help and happy holidays!
Wired connection works fine but wireless ping is insane
