Hey guys,

I've already asked this question in WoW's tech support forums, but given RPSers' general tech-savviness, I thought I'd ask it here as well.

Here's my issue. I'm in Brazil. I play WoW on American servers, since 2007. Last year, I moved and switched ISPs, and the service had actually been quite good until this week.

But now my latency (usually around 170-200ms) has jumped to 4000+. I did the usual things, modem reset, computer reset, called my ISP, they did their tests and said everything is normal. And it does seem to be - downloads, other online games, etc., are all ok.

Two things I've noticed, though:

1) It happens only on certain servers, not others. I have characters in 3 servers, and the latency issues only happen in one of them (unfortunately, the one where my main toon is);

2) It gets really bad during primetime (8-11p EST) but goes back to almost normal in the rest of the day (right now, 11a EST, it's around 500ms).

Any ideas as to what could be happening here? All help is appreciated.

Here are my pathping results, if it helps:
