Every day, my home broadband connection experiences huge lag spikes and slowdowns that aren't resolved until I reboot the cable modem (Time warner). I've had Time Warner out to check the connection. In addition, I've done the following: 1. Switched Cable modem 2. Switched Router 3. Disconnected every networked device one by one 4. I'm going to move next month so that will see if its something to do with the house or my internal network. These slowdowns are driving me crazy because not only my pings to sites like google.com go from 40ms to 500ms+ but my download speed goes from 30mbit/sec down to .03mbit/sec. This makes everything from my work VPN connection to our netflix service damned near unusable. Its like somebody swaps my cable connection for a 56k modem 3 times a day. Any ideas? Anyone been through something like this?
