Lag Issues From NW Ohio For Last Two Weeks

Up until a couple of weeks ago, I would typically get about 50-100 latency reported by the game, with maybe one-two lag spikes per day. However, soon after patch 1.0.5 dropped, my average reported latency jumped to around 250 on average, and I now get frequent half minute long periods of lag freeze. I thought maybe that it was a problem with my network setup, but after a week of router and computer restarts, and using port forwarding and DMZs, I haven't found any relief.

I'm posting now, since my last lag spike was really weird, in that the Battle.Net webpage was down at the same time, however auction toasts and chat messages were still being reported during the spike. I'm starting to suspect that only certain kinds of traffic (UDP vs. TCP?) are being impacted.

I'm using an OS 10.6.8 system connecting via a 2WIRE router provided by AT&T U-Verse. Based on the support pages here, I've compiled a "pathping" to one of your servers. I'm going to try and contact my ISP, but your tech page says to let you guys know as well…

EDIT: Here's a similar report to the website as well... For the record, for a couple of times this last week, my traceroutes were reporting all "*" with 100% loss at every hop. How I was able to even still see the webpage or log in to the B.Net service then is still a mystery to me…

I'm using RCN internet cable broadband with 70mb down and 10up. This disconnecting is really starting to bug me.
