Now I'm not a expert on stuff like this, but I think this is alittle too slow for cable? I have downloaded and installed all the nessesary patches and nothing seems to help. Any suggestions?

Yes, you have some kind of cable problem, call cable company and tell them your pings are way to high :)

Let me guess, you have @Home?

Wait I take that back....your email address is an RR address so you must have RR. You gotta get a ticket for that man. Go to http://help.rr.com and then go into the live chat and explain your problem and demand he give you a ticket.

Well I just got off the chat, according to them, there are latency "problems" in my area that they are trying to fix, but there is no ETR. Aren't I the lucky one... :(
