Sonds similar to my problem, However im on a MUCH smaller network. It turns out,(for me that is) that my isp is having problemslatly meeting demand, and connection speeds vary every few mins, from 6000/kbs sec to 256kbs/sec.
I can tell you what I did to impove the situation though, even if it doesn't apply to you it might guve you a hint.
Well my router is about 3 years old, so I updated the firmware, and wow what a difference, my connection speed was droping down to 256, and now the lowest it goes is 1500/kbs, still slow i know but at least you don't notice so bad when my bandwith gets chocked. I was also giving many new features such as QOS, disabling the firewall, and changing some packet handling deatails.
btw my speeds still vary MASSIVELY every few mins, its not fun, not fun at all.
p.s mabye i should re-enable
te firewall, might be getting hacked..................good luck and why am i getting pinged?
