Consistent lag spikes

Hi, for the past 2-3 weeks, i've noticed an increase in ping while playing games. At first I thought it was just the router requiring a reset but it did not fix it. At the same time, I'm experiencing consistent lag spikes. I reset my internet frequently due to this. However it only solves it temporarily, 1-3 hours at max. Sometimes resetting doesn't help at all! I've updated my network adapter, reset my router many times, none of which seem to fix my problem. This is really irritating me. I've never experienced this until 2-3 weeks ago. I'm connected to the router through cable, not wireless, however, our laptop, which is connected through wireless is experiencing the same problem. I ran a ping test using google.ca as the test. The following was the result:

Looking for a permanent solution.
