When your network connection doesn’t work as intended, it may be because of an outdated driver. Updates generally fix bugs and improve your device’s performance, so make sure you’re using only the latest drivers.
You can manually update your drivers in Windows by following these steps (via Microsoft):
- Launch the Device Manager app.
- Expand the “Network adapters” option.
- Right-click on your network adapter.
- Select Update driver.
- Click on “Search automatically for drivers.”
- Wait for the new update to install.
You can also consider visiting your PC’s manufacturer website to download the updated drivers. They usually have instructions for how to install these drivers on your device.
If you’ve already tried all these troubleshooting tips and still get high pings, try other basic tweaks. Some of these include using a wired network instead of your Wi-Fi, reducing your game’s frame rate, and checking whether it’s a server issue on the game or website itself.
