I'm assuming if you are asking for help with the issue here that you haven't lowered the TCP timeout in your router?
First thing I would do is attempt to recreate the issue with the computer connected directly to the modem. If you can't get the issue to happen connected directly to the modem, you'll have identified the router as the most likely cause.
Router is old. Got it a long time ago at bestbuy. Probably sometime around 2009. Modem was bought in october. It hasen't happened back in october and I haven't gamed since then. The button ontop of the router has been jammed though and the blue LEDS flash on the top. I also can't connect my computer directly to the modem since I have other people in my house (sister lives w/ me and she takes college online)
This is the modem btw: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-224-_-Product
My sister does use the internet at the same time, and she torrents/web browses. This hasen't affected my ping though since I use QOS.Edited by Morizuno - 2/10/11 at 1:28pm
