    Wifi is a chain of many parts.  There is the netfeed, the base station, the connection between the base station and the WiFi connector on the machine, and the machine itself.  Each of these have their own protocols and problems.  The issues you are having could be at one or more points on that chain. The advantage of an ethernet cable is it simplifies the chain and maintains a high level of throughput from the base station.  The disadvantage of course, is that it is a cable.  

    If ethernet does not fix what do you recomend.

  2. Hi! Not new to desktops but also not very expirienced. I need some help. For my pc, I am having some troubles regarding internet connection. I have resorted to a usb adapter for Wifi. This was not my first choice regarding internet connection. My router is nowhere near my pc setup and I would be unable to access ethernet at the moment. I have tried Wifi cards but they still get the same unfortunate results as my current usb wifi adapter. Anywho, I enjoy gaming, but I can't help to notice when playing online/multiplayer games that I get lag spikes or conection freezes every roughly 5 seconds. My laptop along with my family's desktop has no problems as such and expirience no connection problems like I do. I used to game on my laptop and never got the connection freeze. I am able to stay in game and not be disconnected but can't help to lag for about a second or two every 5 seconds. I have had this problem for as long as I can remember on my desktop. I always wondered if it was my usb adapter or pci-e slot so even went as far as getting a new expensive Asus usb Wifi adapter for christmas but still get the same connection spikes. My friends either have ehternet or wifi cards and those who have wifi cards have a totally fine time playing online games. I can even clearly see my connection spikes happen when on discord my three green connection bars when in a voice chat goes to one red for a second or two then back to three green bars. In multiplayer games I would rubberband back to my spot roughly 1 second before th lag. I don't get any problems like these since offline games such as City Skylines or Slime Rancher don't have these lag/rubberband problems. Have had this pc for about 3-4 years now. Can't help to think if it's the motherboard or something. (I honestly couldn't know). Help would be great!

    What speed do you get when transferring files between your desktop and laptop?

    Not sure. Don't know how I would check. Upload/download speeds differ based on wifi cards/adapters that I use but all still expirience lag spikes. Like NDBroughton said, it's like rubberbandding or getting teleported back to where my character was roughly 1 second ago. Almost certain it has nothing to do with internet nor my wifi adapter or wifi cards since my other devices/computers/laptop don't have this problem.
