From about 7-11 pm, my internet ping times to chicago based gaming servers just absolutely goes nuts.

At any other time of the day, i ping 30-40ms to chicago based servers. From 7-11pm, the ping jumps to 80ms with spikes of 110ms.

 

I believe the problem is with one of shaw's routers. Please take a look at a traceroute to a chicago based gaming server:

I've bolded the areas where it goes haywire. I believe the Montreal based router has some issues. Please help!
