In the last couple of days I noticed I was lagging ALOT in Warcraft3 DotA games, so bad I had to leave each game before it finished. It was truly weird as nothing in my internet config has changed, settings or hardware wise. My machine is on 24/7 and rarely restarted, so I dont know what could have happened to drop my speed so significantly. So I figgered I should try an online speed test. Checked out speakeasy's and was getting : Download Speed: 30-75k/sec Upload Speed: 65-90k/sec my normal should be more like 500+k/sec download, the upload is pretty normal at 75k up. Sometimes speakeasy was giving me way lower downloads than that. reset the modem. restarted the machine. installed the dreaded 10.4.8 update. same problem. I am maxing out at about 80k/sec and surfing sometimes is even slower than that. So I called Cox Communications (my cable provider) and they said I was having "some packet loss" and they will send someone out, blah blah. Anyone ever seen this kind of thing?
