I decided to upgrade to windows 7 and everything seemed to be going ok, my download speeds remained 400-500 on some sites and i noticed no problems, until installed ventrilo, world of warcraft, and steam for my gaming.
When i have ventrilo open alone its at 70ms, however when i open anything else that uses internet access i can spike as high as 5000ms.
I was running world of warcraft, ventrilo and mozilla firefox all at once. My ping in "wow" was 350 (regular 80-120) ventrilo 70-5000 almost constently spiking to 500-5000. i dont understand what can be causing these spikes. i have checked to make sure i have up to date drivers, unless im missing something.
I plan to test running each program alone with nothing else open to see if i can keep the pings stable and try opening other to see if its only when i open more then 1 program.
