extreme lag issues

I have been having extremely bad lag issues to the point where I am unable to play online games, watch youtube videos, and even sometimes load simple web pages. I am running windows 7 and am on a wireless connection. I did a ping to google and the results go like this. 31 ms 321 ms 34 ms 54 ms 32 ms 30ms 1033 ms 138 ms 92 ms 31 ms 390 ms 200 ms 34 ms 258 ms 354 ms 472 ms 47 ms 89 ms 46 ms 303 ms 277 ms. and so in in that pattern of a relatively low latency to high then back to low. the lag is sometimes worse than other times so i will post back on that kind of occasion with that ping test but lag is always a problem. any thoughts on a solution. thank you for your time

What's the exact make and model of the modem, the router, and who is the ISP?

Let's see this.

Register at DSLReports and run their Line Quality Tests. It's best to run this test with a direct wired connection to eliminate any wireless issues from the results. It's useful many times to run this test several times, and we'd like to see each of the results. Post the results link from the top of the test display page for each test run here.

The link to post is near the top of the page and looks like:

If you wish to post this result to a forum, please copy/paste this URL <- sample only, yours will obviously be different!
and your IP will be disguised.

Copy/paste that link here.

Note: You will have to enable PING (ICMP) request response either in your router (if you have one), or in your computer's firewall for direct modem connections. This is very important to get the most important part of the test to run.


Here's also the Line Quality Tests FAQ to help you understand the results. This will answer some questions about the line quality display.
