    So recently i have noticed that my internet connection is very unstable. Today when i tried searching something on google, i got this message saying "Our systems have detected unusual traffic from your computer network. This page checks to see if it's really you sending the requests, and not a robot". I've never had trouble playing online games before, specially league, now when i try to play, ping is above 500. Anyone know what's going on ? Any help is highly appreciated.

    I can only assume you are running Windows.

    Open up task manager and take a screenshot of all the processes you have running. Take one of the performance tab too.

    Do you use cable internet? If you do then your cable guy is the culprit as he is using the same connection to many apartments in your building. I had this problem before then I switched to a branded ISP.

    If you're not sending massive amounts of automated traffic, you probably have a bot running on your PC and most modern viruses can hide from task manager, so you're better off running a virus scanner or two to look for the problem.

    The Google problem is caused by too many automated queries, the PING is another issue, most likely a virus is draining your bandwidth, or there is an issue with your ISP.

    Install Comodo firewall and take a look at your active connections. See if there is anything you don't recognize. There's a chance your box is compromised.
