I've had this problem for awhile now. Whenever I join a game (COD: Black Ops, Left for Dead 2, BattleField: Bad Company 2, whatever), about 85% of the time my Latency is above 300ms. Sometimes it drops back down; only to shoot back up. This makes games absolutely unplayable.

Provider~Windstream
Modem~SpeedStream 4200
Router~NetGear WGR614 v9

Router along with the computer next to me (yes I've taken it into account; these pings remain unsatisfactory irregardless of the state of the computer (sleep, active, hibernate, off)).

Connected via cable.

Been playing for the past hour..spies still happen but they last 5 seconds and drop. That's odd though.

Perhaps merely the servers you are connecting to are the ones lagged out....

NOw if all servers are 300 ms, that's an issue...

Tracert to google. Post results here.

Also, are you on wired or wireless? If Wifi, how close are you to the router?

Also, who's using TeamViewer in your house? Can you disable it temporarily?
