Over the last couple weeks my Shadow latency has been spiking an hovering in the 700 m/s range periodically.
This is not a local router issue as I tested both systems independently and my latency test on my base system is in the 50 m/s range. Once I speed test from Shadow there is a remarkable difference.
I primarily use the shadow for PC gaming and the effect is that I am playing in tar where my actions and results are disconnected in a very noticeable way and the screen will start to artifact with a smoky wavy digital noise that is only on the shadow.
My first thought was that global bandwidth may have spilled over into the connectivity but this problem has been very constant for about 3 weeks now. I cannot realistically play ANY first person shooter as the latency makes it a frustrating experience. I live in Los Angeles presumably close to a data center so Idon’t know what gives.
Any help in this arena would be appreciated.

Have you tried lowering it to 15Mbps and enabling H265?
Also, do you have many people either streaming or downloading on your home network?
