Choke/loss in all online games

  1. With almost all the online games i've played (CS:S, City of Heroes, Team Fortress 2, and Natural Selection [Half-Life]), I suffer some serious lag issues.

    NPC's and other players stop moving and then they move up 10 feet ahead where they should of been and sometimes I get sent back 5 feet or so. I have a Linksys router and my provider is comcast. I use an ethernet to connect to my router. Any ideas what might be wrong?

    I'd put up an DxDiag but i dont htink that'd say anything about my internet

    many broadband providers are now limiting bandwidth usage, especially during peak hours. You need to check with your provider.
