=VG= SemlerPDX reply #1 ...
1. - Are you your own net admin - (router/modem access)
2. - Have there been any changes since it began (NAT/SPI, etc)
3. - Can you set up direct port triggering/forwarding to your PC for TS3 Port 9987; Arma 2302; or any other requireds?
3. You pay good money - call those buggers up, and get a tech sent out to get your money's worth. They tend to get rather responsive when you say you are thinking of another provider... !spite

The host needs to be contacted so they understand that packets are dropping on their network. Strange thing is when I did a trace I was dropping in the same spot.

However, you don't play DOTA2 on the DE box, right? So the problem still has to be on your side somewhere. Spyware or a virus could be on your computer and when it runs you see the packet loss and performance drop, etc.

SpyBot Search and Destroy http://www.safer-networking.org/
Malwarebytes http://www.malwarebytes.org/
Micrsodoft Security Essentials http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows/security-essentials-download

These are free programs that are very good at removing nasties. You should run them in safe mode if you feel comfortable doing so.
