    my internet spikes rediculously every 5 minutes or so, for 5 minutes... im talkin from 17 ping to abou 20k ping in ventrilo.

    i first thought it was my router, so i got it replaced. then possibly a virus or something, scanned, got some stuff.. ended up reformatting. then i got a new internet adapter, but ITS STILL SHITTY! what happened? ive have my computer in the same spot for a couple years, and its been fine just till a few weeks ago.

    help?

    do u have the wireless encrypted? sound sliek someone might be jacking yer signal...or have u bought any cordless phones.etc recently, these run on the same wavelength as the wireless and can interfere with the signal.

    sorry it didnt work man...one of the reasons i fuckin hate wireless lol, ive had nothing but bad experience with it. my advice, go to a wired network instead..ethernet may be a pain to install throughout a home, but its 100% dependable and doesnt fuck with u like wireless does. :) good luck
