I am having an issue that is making gaming impossible.  Periodically, seeminly randomly (but happening once per few minutes most of the time) i am having some sort of network timeout.  When this happens, I experience about 15-20 seconds of lag in any online games im playing, then it returns to normal.  The problem started Friday, and tech support can't seem to help.  They say its the actiontec router (i heard it had problems, but i dont run any p2p and have been fine before Friday).

 

I'll post a ping to speedtest.verizon.net below, to show you what I mean.  It appears to be happening on both wired and wireless and wired computers.  Whenever i get that request timed out, i get a huge lag spike in my gaming (and loading an internet page if i happen to do it at the same time.)

Due to the tiny NAT table, I would recommend using your own router..

See as need be:
