To try a bit of trial and error, do you have a firewall program that you can turn off just to test with? I found out that ZoneAlarm did that to me sometimes and needed to be reconfigured (I just reinstalled it to make it easy).

All of them? How many do you have? And how high are your lag spikes going?

Did you also turn off the windows firewall?

Since you are behind a router, is it possible to remove the router and plug one computer directly to the modem? Does the problem continue to happen?

Finally, are you running any other programs at the same time that access the internet? Especially file-sharing programs like bit torrent or limewire?

Try running a speed test http://www.speedtest.net/ what sort of connection does it say you are getting?
