Over the last few days I have noticed my ping on Ventrilo fluctuating pretty wildly. I normally float around 20-50 which is acceptable, however it will for extended periods of time jump to 700+, then come back down to 30ish. I have looked at my network during these times and I don't see any high load going on, just normal stuff. I am not downloading anything, nor is there much going on with anyone on my network (3DS, 1 work laptop and 2 cellphones). I have checked on the work laptop to see if it has similar issues (speedtest.net) and it appears to have the same problem. 400-700 ping according to the test, I ran an extended "ping 184.108.40.206 -n 1000" and even direct to Google, the fluctuation occurs randomly.
The only thing I can think of since it doesn't seem to be local to my PC, is that either the Router or Modem is on the crapper. Is that the correct assumption, or could I be missing something else entirely?
