Hello

I've been trying to figure this one out for quite a while now with no avail. My desktop computer - Intel Core2 Q6600 quadcore 2,4ghz @ 2,9ghz, 2x2GB DDR2 800mhz, ATI Radeon 5750, 500 gig HDD, Asus P5KPL-VM mobo, Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit, Thomson TG789vn router and all the latest drivers from hardware suppliers installed or tested on all hardware for whether they would fix the issue - has problems with latency and download speeds at intervals that seem pretty random. The issue would occur about once every 1-10 minutes whilst playing a game like League of Legends or Call of Duty if I were also simultaneously listening to music from Spotify and talking thru Skype. Spotify has the greatest impact on this I think. Also, any peer to peer software with more than 15-20 allowed simultaneous connections just about floods itself and my whole internet connection to something quite unusable. My download speed is 24Mb/s, upload 1Mb/s.

What I believe is not the cause is my router. My laptop has the same OS and doesn't have any trouble with multiple connections even while using the wireless feature of the router, so that seems to be out of the picture.

This problem has been around for a long while and I'm not absolutely sure about how or when it began. I'd guess it started since the end of last august. It might have been caused by a windows update. This problem didn't exist before that.

I'm not eager to format my HDD yet, though it might help all things considering. In hopes of getting some professional assistance with the issue, I'll leave that possible solution to a later date.

I thank you already for your time.
