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

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.
