Hi msg_dman,
I'm not sure what firewall you have, if any, however a good (free) firewall that I am currently using (and would recommend) is Kerio Personal Firewall. With this firewall, you'll be able to control the number of connections you're making to the Internet.

Did you mention to your ISP that this issue is happening on all of your computers? Seems a little odd to me that both of your computers have too many connections... Oh well.

Try installing Kerio and see if it helps.

I'm having the exact same issue as the original poster. I have no router at all, my firewall is currently off, I can surf OK though it seems "choppy," and games get extreme latencies and frequent disconnects.

This only seems to occur during peak hours, say 7:30pm-11:00pm. There are no outages in my area when this happens, although other areas are having trouble sometimes. My traceroute looks the same as the OP.
My signal levels are apparently within the normal range.
