[Extreme Plus] Weird Problem with my Internet

The issue: I've been experiencing wacky latency internally to the router. If I ping from my PC which is connected via ethernet, I will get 1ms ping, which is proper. After several days, this will spike to insane levels and Internet will get choppy.

What I've Done: I've called Rogers 5 times. The first time, I was told to swap my modem (SMC3DGN) and ended up getting the Cisco model. That didn't work. I called them 3 more times and finally came to the conclusion that there was a signal boost issue. This was fixed. Problem still happens. Was told to get another modem. I am back to the SMC3DGN.

This has been happening since mid August. When I reboot the router, it's good again for a few days to a week, and then just goes wack again.

I have more than 10 devices that connect to the router/modem with a combination of wireless and ethernet. This has been pretty much the same before mid-August. My brother did come back from school which added about 3 devices (7 before Mid-August).

Any suggestions? Ideas?

Anyone ever see problems like this?

Sounds like it could be something just overwhelming the modem over time. Plenty of things could be behind that, but my first guess would be a lot of open connections (like a poorly configured torrent client).

Are you using the wireless gateway functionality of the modems or are you in bridged mode with your own router?
