I'm also having problems with COD: BO. I'll have trouble connecting to the Black Ops servers and when I do manage to get in a lobby the connection is terrible. But like minecraft, this problem ceases at the same time.
I thought it might be a problem with the high amounts of traffic in my area during the day, so I decided to keep track of my internet speeds and when minecraft can/can't work on a spreadsheet. I also tethered my iPhone internet connection through to my laptop and connected to Minecraft with no problems at all, so it's clearly a problem with my house's connection.
I won't post the spreadsheet here unless someone asks. To sum it up, minecraft (and Black Ops) will start working at exactly 23:50. Not 23:48, not 23:49, exactly 23:50. There is no noticeable change in my internet speed in that minute interval either (I'm getting constant 2.4Mbps). It will then stop working sometime in the morning (I can't check when it stops working because I'm not up early enough).
It must also be noted minecraft works throughout the weekend too, from 23:50 Friday to sometime in the morning on Monday.
Now this can hardly be an internet speed problem, it's too systematic. Is there a setting on my Belkin router doing this? Is there a problem with my ISP? Are they limiting my bandwidth during heavy traffic times? I'm asking here first because contacting demon directly is my last resort. I never had this problem a couple of months ago, it's seemed to have manifested it self out of thin air. ANY help is appreciated.
