Too many open sessions seemingly causing massive lag.

Hello, first off I have a model "V1000H" from telus. It started lagging badly a few days ago, I noticed I had over 400 open sessions, even when nothing was open. I disabled DMZ, and that reduced mine to under 30.


EDIT: I found the cause, and its my roommates computer. Although we've scanned for viruses and found nothing, reset the computer and modem several times, it seems to jump up in open sessions.


We first thought it was his file sharing, so we outright disabled it. Didn't work. So we removed all the files he was sharing in the first place. Somehow his open sessions got worse. It's now over 750. If his computer is offline, the ping is around 30ms. If hes online, it's well over 100.


He has nothing even open, no p2p programs. Is there anything I can do?

Where are these "Sessions" connecting to and what port is being used?
