Well, I'll probably jinx my play time tonight, but, I've been back from an evening out to a local pub and I haven't had any lag issues so far. Granted, it's only been 15 minutes but that's worlds better than last night and today.

Kind of weird. The lag spikes stopped for me but moved onto my friends.

I'm having the same issues on the east coast, it starts really bad around 9pm my time and lasts until about 4-5am. It's not me, if can get laggin like crazy in d3 then log into any other game and get 30ms. I made a few posts about this but some moron here keeps deleting them....

So I was on the auction house this morning. Sometimes it takes like 10-20 seconds to place a bid post/cancel an auction. Other times it's normal. Strange stuff

Same problem. Comcast-Chicago. About every 10-15min I hit a lag spike. Low ping ~80-90 and then I hit the spike and lose the next several seconds. (the wife gets them too but not at the same time)

If it didn't cause about 75% of my deaths I wouldn't be so annoyed.

I have the same problem. Playing the game it's going fine, then all of a sudden it locks it, my character is moving but when I fire nothing comes out and I can't interact with the environment, happens for about 1 to 2 seconds, then the game comes back and usually i'm dead or if i'm lucky almost dead and can get away but it happens frequently every few minutes. My latency bar is in the red. I can play all other games, been playing WoW for like 6 years and never had an issue, can play LoL, and other various FPS games and no problems. It's definitely an issue because my friend that lives in Canada has the exact same problem and my girl always plays and she has the same issue. But then I have another friend on my list that says he doesn't experience any lag at all... so what the heck is going on..

ISP - Brighthouse
Country - USA
Modem (and firmware version if known) - Motorola Surfboard SBG6580
Router (and firmware version if known) - none
Network device (Driver version if available) - Realtek PCIe GBE
Type of connection used (Wireless / USB / Ethernet) - Ethernet
Operating System - Windows 7
Security Software installed (Firewall, Anti-Virus) – MSE

I know it's something in our routing to the d3 servers I just don't know what. Because my girl sits right next to me and can be playing wow and I yell lag, she says she's fine, i look over and her latency is green and like 80ms and mine is 900 in d3. Here's a Pathping:

Same, my ping has been spiking all over the place. I'm playing from Australia so I expect a dodgy ping but it is unplayable. Goes from 250 up to 1500 every couple of minutes occasionally resulting in a disconnect. I only just installed D3 as well, not the greatest first impression.

I should mention that my ping is only behaving this way on D3.

Any luck on this? Do you need anymore information from me? Still dieing to white mobs even because of lag..

Having the same issues as well. I had this issue about a month ago as well, same exact thing. My character can move around, my follower is still attacking, I am still getting hit, but none of my spells work.
Happening as of right now, and just got disconnected from the game, not from Battle.net, just the game I was in. I thought since it stopped doing that from last month it was good, but nope.

So many people experiencing lag and it is so sad. Maybe one of you could be able to test with a new internet network or with a new isp to see what will happen with the lag issue.

I know that is not all of u who can do this but if you can have a reliable permanent cable internet connexion on the new network it would be kewl to have some other feedback than me.

It worked for me even with 5 mbits per sec and the gameplay is so smooth.

Alternatively it could seems weird but when i set the audio to 128 channel i got a permanent heavy lag and a red ping bar until i change back the audio setting . So i set it to the lowest seting to make sur it is safe when i'm playing in coop.
