Just wondering if anyone has had similar issues to me lately - tonight (and last sunday night) had an identical issue occur where my internet connection is fine - however any online gaming (ie WoW, GuildWars, SWTOR) and even steam connection have either fallen off or had terrible ping response times (in the 1000s of ms - basically up to a point where it disconnects) - however normal internet, youtube, netflix etc all work fine...

I'm using Spark VDSL connecting directly to the telecom router (technicolor gateway) - i thought it was a one off but its just happened again making me wonder if theres something else going on...

Routes could have been changing etc etc..
