Alright, I just signed up for Comcast cable internet in my new apartment and the first time I get into a CS server I continually get lag spikes for no reason whatsoever. I'm playing on Chicago servers, and I LIVE in chicago. I tried adjusting my rates much lower than what I ususally do but I still get constant Loss and Choke. I also exited my x-fire and AIM programs to help get rid of the connection load. I called Comcast asking if there was anything they could do and I went through the standard procedure of power cycling my modem and restarting my PC, but to no avail, the ping spikes still occurred. I attempted to connect to multiple servers and there was no difference. Is this possibly an issue with my ethernet port on the back of my PC? I never used to have this problem when I played at home in Michigan using the same port. Oh, and one last thing, if it DOES happen to be my network port on the PC, I cannot connect to the modem through USB because there are NO DRIVERS FOR XP 64! >.<

My modem: Motorola SURFboard SB5120.
Provider: Comcast in Illinois (Chicago)

You probably need to forward the ports im surprised the tech guys didnt mention it, i once mentioned it in passing when talking to a tech guy from my ISP and he gave me a fix that worked just fine, although it pretty easy there is often a screen especially for it on your router settings now that makes it easy. portforward.com is a good resource at least it was when i did it but that was a while ago messing with ports can be a royal PITA.

Thanks, but i'm not using a router so there is no forwardable ports >.<

EDIT: I do have access to my readings on my SURFboard however for signal and power and what not...
