    Used TCP Optimizer and now I get lag spikes

    Ever since I used TC Optimizer my connection has remained at a low ping but there are now lag spikes in games which cause problems.

    Any idea why this might be?

    I simply used optimal settings on all adapters. My download speed is 30mbps and that is what I set the slider to.

    Does this sometimes happen on some systems? Is there a usual culprit or reason? TCP Analyzer Results

    Lag spikes are usually attributed to packet loss and connection problems, such as congestion, and could be hard to track. Do your traceroutes look normal ?

    Excessive buffering may play some minor role, however, this should not apply to Windows 7 with fast recovery algorithms and TCP Window auto-tuning. What game ? Have you tried disabling Nagling (advanced tab in the Optimizer). Does reverting the settings to the Windows defaults have any effect on this issue ?
