Well, we have a little issue here in my household. In the past week or so, we've been unable to maintain a steady connection to most MMO games such as World of Warcraft and Everquest. However, our web browsing is working just fine. We've talked with our ISP several times, and they've even sent their techies out here to try and help.
They replaced our modem, some of the cables, and told us that the connection was fine and that we should be having no issues. We tried WoW again, but the problem persists. When we first start up the game, our latency is low and in the green. After about 10 minutes, it declines rapidly going straight from green to red in less than 5 minutes.
We've checked our router settings, the modem has been replaced, and our connection has been tested thoroughly. The only thing that we can think of is this: We recently got a new computer, and think that it might somehow be messing up the connection. I'm not entirely sure how, though. The computer is running Win XP Home Edition 5.1, build 2600.
