inconsistent ping to server
Hey all. I was having this problem before and then was convinced to get a new modem. I rent from Cox, so that was included in my deal but the problem has been continuing. Lately in all games I've been getting warnings of packet loss and latency variation. I ran pings to my router (fine), but also to something like www.google.com and was getting spikes and sometimes even timeouts.
I read other forums that said this was my ISP's problem. How can I fix this before I flip out?! Considering i pay for a massive up/download speed that I'm not even able to utilize properly!!!!!
