have you tried a direct connection to your modem?, also, does this problem appear on other computers attached to the router? what kind of networking device are you using to connect to the internet? onboard lan?

do you have a cable box hooked up to the same type of white cable that goes into your modem?

Could be what your paying for. Roadrunner has like 3 different levels of Internet connectivity. Have you tried any other server with speedtest. That could account for your high ping and slow upload speeds. My default is Orlando and I get slower results there then when I use Tampa. Also, it could be your router. What kind of router are you using? It may need a firmware upgrade, or may need to be reset.

What Pancho is trying to say is what type of modem do you have? it should say on the front of it. Roadrunner is usually paired with a Scientific Atlantica branded modem.

you can usually check signal strength from your cable box and that would explain some of the fluctuating speeds you're getting. most of the time its scientific atlanta.. so.. do you have a scientific atlanta cable box? and im talking about cable box as in television.

i can fix this. start the game your having trouble with, move your mouse over to taskbar, right click, task manager, click on processes, find the game your running (should be something like "hl2.exe") right click on it, priority's click on low, click yes on the error message that comes up, restart game, join server, enjoy.

Oh, you meant cable box. =/. My cable provider (Brighthouse) used to have Scientific Atlanta, but they are using Samsung boxes (trying to switch over as of late as their new Scientific Atlanta HDC boxes suck ass). Anyways, my modem is also Scientific Atlanta, so I assumed that is what you are talking about.
