I'm currently having huge ms whilst online gaming, about every 4seconds i'll get a 3000ms peak and this will repeat up until the point I just quit out of fustration. I'm running Windows 7 on a computer with specs that surpass game requirements, I am using a 2.0 Wireless USB card all drivers are up to date.
I have speed tested my broadband, it came up with 1.7mb download and 0.5mb upload speed, even though these are far from great they should still support the amount of data my online gaming consumes.

Just curious, does this happen if you are wired to the router?

What game are you playing?

Hope this helps thumbup.gif

I have gone wired before, the spikes were still bad but not quite as persistant, ofcourse I'd love to go back to wireless but other people in my household wouldn't like me dragging a cable up the stairs.

And I play World of Warcraft and Call of Duty 6, the spikes are worse on WoW but still reconisable on CoD.

Connect your PC directly to the cable modem/DSL modem and try pinging the same IP with 100 packets. See if the spikes remain or disappear.
