Random lag spikes?

Hello everyone, just wanted to ask if you guys were experiencing the same problem I have lately
Well... sometimes when I'm playing in a match the Latency display fills up to 4 bars, for like 1 second or two (for some weird coincidence this happens 90% of the times my lane gets ganked) and then drops down to the standard low ping, which is really annoying...
so... any solutions?

Waiting for an answer...
Have a nice game

Hello!
Are you using a wireless or cable connection?
Also, what ISP are you using? A wild guess, I guess you're using Virgin Media and live in the UK?

And no, my isp is Telecom Italia

Also having these problems and I'm sick of it being attributed to my ISP because my ISP says it's Riot's fault and Riot blames my ISP.

I have a Virgin connection, 70mb/s.

Just pinged Google and got 13ms yet I get really random lag spikes which is making this game unplayable for me as one mistake means death for pretty much any mid.

I know that in August of last year there were similar problems and as above both sides blamed each other. I believe virgin managed to sort the problem out, it was to do with where the traffic went when it left the UK to the Riot servers.

I'm having the same problem.

Today I repaired my client and it seemed like it worked, but 10 minutes into the game it happened again and i kept getting lag spikes upwards of 3000 ping that made me go from 4/1 to 6/7. They happened every 30 seconds or so for at least 10 seconds each. There's no downloading or uploading going on and my brother, who uses iLoL on a Mac, isn't having any trouble.

Windows 7
Wireless connection through O2 ISP

Same here. Got 16k DSL, having no problems, but in the evening its unplayable.
And together with the promotion series this lag destroys the whole fun of the game.

When you're next experiencing the issue do the following

On Windows vista/7 you click start and then in the search box type cmd

On Windows XP/2000 you click start and then click run and type cmd

A black window should pop up, in that window type tracert 95.172.65.76 and then hit enter, once thats done you need to right click the black window hit select all and then press enter, then paste that information here and we can take a look at it.

Judging by the complaints i'm pretty sure i can guess where the issue is
