    Hi, for about 10 days now my connection has been plagued with lag spikes and very unstable ping.

    So far I've done the following:
    #1 Update my network adapter drivers to the latest version as well as all necessary updates to Windows 7.
    #2 Re-applied the TCP/Optimizer fixes and other utilities made to enhance the general connectivity and stability of a connection
    #3 Ran a virus and malware scan (nothing found), disabled all applications that could be using a connection, used the bandwidth usage/connections monitor on my router's firmware to ensure that nothing was running unintended, nothing was found either.

    Then I did ping tests on one server in particular where I have trouble keeping a stable ping, here are the results:

    100 pings, 600b each, 1 second interval.

    From my basic understanding on networking, certain nodes seems to be lagging me significantly, is there a way to make it so I don't use those nodes?
