I live in wellingtion (new zealand), am with paradise (isp) and on 2meg/2meg plan.
The problem started around 2 weeks ago? When i was still on my 256/128 plan. So changing to cable didn't casue the prob.
I get around 150 ping in css servers (used to be around 20). And people see me teleporting all over the place. So i'm laggin' badly.
I get the lag on our 2nd comp (client) (as we have two computers networked together using the "direct conection " method (no router)
On the first comp (host) (one with the modem) I type ping www.trademe.co.nz
in the command prompt. I get an average ping of 24ms.
On my second PC (the one with ping issues) i do that same thing, and get 187 ms
This connection had been working great... I didn't change any settings or install any new programes... (i think)
Oh, download / upload speeds are fine on both comps too O_o
I think it has something to do with my router? I use an Motorola SB4200 SURFboard cable modem
Any one got any ideas? This is driving me crazy! :P
 Both computers' are using windows xp pro.
