Ok Ping isnt the issue. Loss means things have to resend packets in 6% of the time.

What is Sopcast?

You may have 12 Mb downlo0ad but your upload may be substantially lower and sopcast (whatever that is) may be hogging the uploads. Run speedtest and find the upload speed with sopcast running and without it.
My upload speed with sopcast is around 1 Mb/s, and my provider offer was 2 Mb/s.
SO basically Sopcast is using half. So you still should have enough to do basic browsing etc.

You using wifi, or ethernet?

I would look into Sopcast and see if you are indeed uploading and maybe limit the users, limit the upload usage.

For gaming and basic browsing i would say at least 10/15 kbs spare, Look into your provider and see what your upload is so you can CAP it.

The upload usage is limited to 2 Mb/s for my provider. How do I see if I use WI FI or Ethernet?

Is there a cable connecting the computer to the router? if so it is ethernet (prob ablu), if not it is wifi (wireless).
