Hi,
I have telocity (direct TV DSL) DSL and I have been experiencing problems when I try to play games online. For a moment it will be all good, with a ping of about 30 or so, but then it will spike up to like 1500 for a few seconds and then back down and it will repeat this over and over again. I have tried upgrading my bios, i have tried disabling the "allow computer to turn off usb device" option.
I am currently using Windows XP and the latest telocity software.

Any ideas how I can fix this problem?

any help would be greatly appreciated

Name all of your USB devices that are connected when this happens.

What operating system are you using?

If Windows XP, there's a tweak to reclaim around 20% of the bandwidth Windows reserves for special use.
