Experiencing lag spikes while gaming causing disconnects with ATT Fiber

Since having ATT Fiber installed three months ago I have experienced occasional lag spikes causing disconnects during online gaming. These spikes occur about every 10-20 minutes and tend to last a couple seconds. Has anyone else experienced this issue, and is there anything that can be done to solve this or at least reduce the amount of spikes?

Hello @Jrichgames,


Thank you for reaching out on the forums! Have you tried changing your DNS settings on your gateway? We suggest giving google DNS a go to see if this will decrease any latency you maybe experiencing. Check out this DNS Settings thread to learn more about using Google DNS. We hope this helps!
