Ping Fluctuating

Hi there. While gaming, I noticed that my ping goes up and down a good amount. This has been happening for months now and I've mostly been able to ignore it as it's relatively minor, however in games where better internet matters, it is really inconvenient.

This is what outputs from cmd when I do a ping test. As you can see, it spikes up and down a bit. This causes notable lag which is especially noticible on game servers across the country from me. I use a broadband for my connection so it seems odd that it would be going up and down like this. I have also factory reset the modem, tried different security levels via the gateway, however this continues no matter what. If anyone has an idea of what the issue is, please let me know.

Please see Internet Troubleshooting Tips. If you still need help, please post your modem or gateway's model number and signal information, especially downstream power levels and SNR, upstream power levels, and error log.

FWIW, in that small sample that you posted, there is really not a lot of jitter.
