    Angry DSL Ping Spikes

    Hi fellas,

    I run a 512 DSL line in a 2bit hick town in Minnesota. As of latly I've been getting BAD Ping spikes every few minutes. ( Average 60ms in Call of Duty spikeing to 999ms and slowly falling back down to 60-100ms every few minutes) I've called the ISP but of course it's not them they say,And i have ran the latest Spy/Adware and virus scan's.

    Speed test's shot my Download/Upload speed's @ 268/211 wich dosnt seem good either. Any clue on that?

    I have also done the QoS Tweaks and Reg edit for IE and DNS Error cache to no avail ... all help is appreciated.

    Perhaps something running in the background?? or Video card bottlenecking the system.. I had that problem once the video card was going bad and it kept spiking my connection and eventually was lockin up in single player as well. Just a thought of course. Still wouldn't put it past the ISP that could be where the problem lies or perhaps in the line itself.
