Server lag?

90 Tauren Paladin
Is anyone getting constant lag spikes? When i first log it i have about 120 lat then jumps up to about 8k? I have all my add-ons disable and nothing else running in the back ground.. is this just server issues or am I missing something

I'm assuming you have Time Warner Cable (Road runner/Brighthouse), I have the same issue and have TWC. Happened to me around 1 and 1/2 years ago on a Chicago server. Nothing you can do about it unless you want to change ISP :\ Seems to just be happening on NY servers

Friend of mine on a NY server suggested downloading ReduceTheLag and select your server on the site. I've been using it but not sure how well it works. Pretty much it uses different nodes(?) to get to the NY server. You'll most likely see a MS increase of like 10-20 but its better than 8k+ :D Only issue I've had with it is you can log on multiple accounts at the same time, even Beta and live.
