hello, i am not sure if this is in the right section..so if it is not please redirect me.

My problem is that during the day/night (after 9:30pm) i get an average ping of about 80, sometimes as low as 50 but every evening from about 5:00pm to 10:00pm my ping rises to a near unplayable average of 170 ping. i scan for spyware/virus's every few days so im certain that is not the problem. could anyone please give me a solution to this or an explanation to why this is happening. thankyou.

the server you are conecting to gets real busy between 5:00pm to 10:00pm is why the times increase...there is nothing you can do to help...

depends where they are


it also depends on how many nodes you have to go thru to get to the server your trying to connect to..if the one that you normally use gets a lot of traffic you could be redirected thru several others that aren't as busy at that time
try tracert here...or traceroute to see how your being directed at the fast and slow times..
