Im gonna try to make this as clear as possible. I have DSL for about a year now, im using Windows Xp Home and i just formated my hard drive. The problem started last week, after i formated hard drive. My ping spikes all the way to 200 and sometimes 300 when playing multiplayer games. Before this problem started, i used to ping around the low 30's and 40's. I've done a tracert to the server where i currently play and there's no packet loss or any kind of problem there. I've also pinged it and my results are very unstable. I've tried tweaking the connection as well and my download and upload speeds are great. Im getting around 90% of what my isp advertises. Forgot to mention, i've called my ISP also and they say they don't see any problems on their side. What in the world could be causing these pings spike?
