Still packet loss to to router modem after replacing it and network card
I have had severe packet loss occurring within my wi-fi network, which has made me unable to connect to game servers properly, and caused significant lagging.
After performing traceroutes and using pingplotter, it became apparent that the packet loss was primarily from the first step (computer to router/modem). *Note, I had a router modem 2 in 1. I replaced the router modem (myrepublic wifi hub+) with a TP-link VR600V, which seemed to eliminate packet loss and latency at steps after the first, but still has significant packet loss at the first step (99%+). I have tried altering router settings such as channel, bandwidth and connecting to both 2.4 GHz or 5 GHz bands. I also have the latest drivers and firmware on the network card and modem router. The packet loss is also reduced to around 1% when connecting via ethernet cable to my laptop, but this is not an option for my desktop. This makes me believe there is a problem with the wi-fi capabilities of the router, however it seems strange this occurred between two routers (one brand new and expensive).
Any help is appreciated as I am lost what to do next.
