    2 Months ago, my internet was fine and I would always get a constant speed when downloading and playing games. My ping usually in some games like CSS would be 40-50. But one day, my ping started jumping from 60- 150 and my download speed spikes from 67 kb/s to 300 kb/s.

    I scanned for viruses etc. but still no luck. I EVEN REFORMATTED MY PC[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]. Still no luck.

    Here is a log of me pinging to Google in [COLOR=#3676A2 ! important][COLOR=#3676A2 ! important]command [COLOR=#3676A2 ! important]prompt[/COLOR][/COLOR][/COLOR]

    As you can see, it spikes every few seconds. I tried resetting my router, even connected directly to my [COLOR=#3676A2 ! important][COLOR=#3676A2 ! important]modem[/COLOR][/COLOR], and still I persist in spiking. [​IMG]

    So if you can help me, please do as I would appreciate your aid.

    Register at DSLReports and run their Line Quality Tests. It's best to run this test with a direct wired connection to eliminate any wireless issues from the results. It's useful many times to run this test several times, and we'd like to see each of the results. Post the results link from the top of the test display page for each test run here.

    The link to post is near the top of the page and looks like:

    If you wish to post this result to a forum, please copy/paste this URL
    http://www.dslreports.com/linequality/nil/2357195 <- sample only, yours will obviously be different!
    and your IP will be disguised.

    Copy/paste that link here.

    Note: You will have to enable PING (ICMP) request response either in your router (if you have one), or in your computer's firewall for direct modem connections. This is very important to get the most important part of the test to run.


    DSLReports

    Here's also the Line Quality Tests FAQ to help you understand the results. This will answer some questions about the line quality display.

    I think you're getting just a tad impatient. This is not a chat-room, it's a forum where we come periodically. Nobody is sitting here 24/7 waiting to answer your incoming question. It's customary to way about 24 hours before bumping a post.

    Other than some mystery issue with your local connection where pings don't get through, you don't appear to have any dropped packets. I'd lean on the ISP some more, clearly, this is a problem with either the modem or the ISP, since multiple computers have the same lousy upstream performance.
