Hm... Notebook currently powered from AC adapter. Just checked powersaving plans - Wireless adapters in AC mode set to Maximum performance. 
I'm just connect notebook with ethernet cable directly to my Home-Made-AP-Router and disabled wi-fi - the problem gone away - ping always 1ms without any spikes. But... this is not a solution.
So, guess the problem not in background tasks - I'm even disable Kaspersky Internet Security while testing those :)
