My cable dsl goes off when I try to run......

Specs: Windows XP, 2.8ghz/768mb
My cable dsl goes off when I try to run "Gameranger". If i dont use internet and send ping to 192.168.1.1, it is <1 normally. When using internet through firefox or chrome, it sometimes fluctuates and goes to 60, 70 sometimes more than 100. But it doesnt happen everytime.
The thing I noticed is that almost 99% of the times when I run Gameranger, just after like 10 or 15 seconds my ping status goes to "Request Time out". If I close it then after about 15 Request time outs it becomes normal. But if I dont close it, the ping will return to normal for like 10 seconds and then again request time out. It is happening to me for many days. REALLY ANNOYING.
One more thing that there are many computers on my network.

What is gameranger? What is it's purpose?

It matters not how straight the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate;
I am the captain of my soul.

The purpose is same as of Gamespyarcade. Its a popular multiplayer gaming software. We can play multiplayer games by hosting and joining on gameranger.

Your internet works properly at all other times except for when you run this software...right?

If the issue only crops up when you're running that software so it seems likely the software is the issue. Perhaps it's misconfigured. I would talk to another gamer who runs it, and for whom it works properly. Find out how they have theirs configured and then I'd uninstall, and reinstall/configure the software.

If that doesn't fix the issue, I don't know what else to tell you other than, "don't run it if it doesn't work properly"

It matters not how straight the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate;
I am the captain of my soul.
