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)

Also, I am not using a router of any sort. i'm plugged directly into the modem.
