Massive ping spikes

Anonymous

Hello, I've been having issues lately with my internet connection. Online gaming has become unplayable due to massive lag spikes. I've ran a ping test and a tracert to see if it was also occuring while web surfing, strangely it was, except it wasn't noticable at all. I've been playing fine for many years without any issues. Im connected to my modem through a Linksys wrt54g directly with an ethernet cord and use shaw as my isp. I've formatted my drive and completly resnstalled windows 7 64-bit to no avail to make sure I don't have a virus. I have an i5 gaming rig and for the last month havent been able to play any games. There are no other computers connected to my network, I have tried plugging my computer directly into my modem and get the same results. I've also tried switching ethernet cords... as you can see I'm pretty desperate haha. Shaw says there's no problems on their side. I was wondering if anyone could help me? Here are both tests I ran to google.com, you can see the pingspikes pretty clearly.

I've also tried a registry fix for windows 7 I found online for the network throttle but it didn't work as well.
