    About three months ago my friend and I had identical gaming computers built in-store. His has not had any issues, and mine was fine within the first week of gaming, however all of a sudden the games started to rubber band. There were no drops in FPS, but my internet became beyond sluggish. Note: I thought maybe something was wrong with the dongle I was using to connect, so I bought a new one (different brand) and the same issue occurred. The router being in another room is not the problem, as I set it up right next to the PC and nothing changed. Now, if I directly connect, this does solve the issue, however, direct connect is not an option for where my room is located. I have updated all drivers, reinstalled drivers … and still it is still giving me a headache. I have tried using every available USB port for the wireless network adapter(s) (which were not cheap and are made for top gaming experiences), so I'm at a loss now. Does anyone have any idea what might be wrong? Again, my friend had an identical computer built on the same day by the same guy in-store, and he is not experiencing any rubber banding affects. Thanks for any insight!

    Does your friend use the computer wireless like you?

    Does he use it in the same location? Meaning are you and he using the same router to connect to the Internet? I'm thinking it may be a router issue.
