I do a lot of gaming and 2 of the online games i play I have been experiencing lag spikes like no tomorrow. One game is WOW and the other is WoT(World of Tanks). I have been noticing it on some web sites and the really weird part is when I try to trace rt to any website it really does not go thru.
Now during the lag spikes i look at my modem's log and I see this.
Is ATT having trouble with their dns servers or am I having line issues cause looking at my modem everything looks fairly good. Now on the WOW forums people have been having issue as well. Some have trace it to a set of routers on the internet that belongs to ATT.

I also have been experiencing the same problem you're having. I've had them out here, they tested lines and of course everything comes back fine. Gave me a new modem, same problem. Gaming is utterly impossible. I'm usually at 12mps...when lag comes i drop to around 1.8 mbs or lower.
