Wireless and Wired Lag Spikes...

been happening 3-4 days now at first i thought that my roommate was hogging all the bandwith but she wasn't i tested both her laptop and mine's connection and hers is perfectly fine whereas mine was sporadic and unstable.

I even went wired and the problem persists.. I've asked an IT friend for a hand but he doesn't seem to know what's up. I think it's a hardware problem but he says that if i'm connected to the router it isn't and that it's the router/isp that's at fault.. but if that were the case my roommate's laptop would be affected too yes?

So i'm really stumped.. anyone have any ideas?

before anyone suggests anything else i even uninstalled the wireless driver and checked the updates on most of my drives.. so idk...
