I've been having this issue for quite a few months now and up until now just dealt with it. With the release of Diablo 3 (whoo!) it's become unbearable with this lag spikes.

My ping will be fine, steady around 80-120 but then randomly spike upwards of 400, even sometimes almost 1000. After a few moments it'll drop back down to it's normal speed.

This happens in all online games I play, WoW, League of Legends, DotA 2 and now Diablo 3.

I have roadrunner and pay for 25 download and 1 upload so it should be more than enough to play the games I'd like, I'm also running on windows 7 and on wireless. I think part of the problem could be the fact that the router is in the basement and I'm on the second story. I have a netgear wndr3700v3 router and I set up a repeater in my room to see if that would help (asus rt-n12 router) and although it has increased my speed, it didn't fix the ping spiking problem.

Thanks for any help! :)

Can you remove the spoiler tags, it makes the results file hard to read.

Also please Repair Your Hosts File and remove the adobe links to allow all your adobe products to be updated.
