Hey guys, I installed Diablo 3 yesterday and have been experiencing terrible lag spikes in "single player mode". My ping jumps erratically between 250ms and about 1500ms. It happens every minute or so while in-game. Performing actions in-game doesn't seem to cause or worsen the effect, it just keeps on happening. The game frequently stops for 5 seconds or more then "catches up" by playing all the action that happened during the spike instantaneously.

Anyway, I performed two traces consecutively, so maybe someone knowledgeable can identify a problem.

Location: Sydney, Australia
Connection: ADSL through wireless router
ISP: Telstra
Diablo 3 Server: Americas

I Should note that I do a fair bit of online gaming and Diablo 3 is the only game suffering from this odd latency behaviour.
