[TWC] Huge lag/ping spikes
The about the past month or so, there are random times throughout the day where my pings simply skyrocket. For example, a ping to Google would be 15ms, but would then be in the 600-1000ms range. This happens to every other website as well. I can ping a device on my local network, and it'll be low like normal. A reset of the modem, not my router, seems to fix things for a while, but it will eventually happen again.
Is it my modem? I'm tempted to get a replacement from the local Time Warner Cable office, but just want to make sure. I have confidence that it is the modem, however.
I went ahead and went modem-only for about 4 hours, and nothing major happened, but I don't believe that I modem-only long enough to test or use things.
So, last Saturday, I went ahead and picked up the ASUS RT-N65R (RT-N65U is the non-Best Buy version), and things seemed perfect for a while, but now it just happened again.
If it really is the modem, then I can go ahead and get that swapped out and return the new router.
