Do the spikes affect game play? Ping (ICMP) may have been affected by something in the router's settings but that doesn't necessarily mean UDP packets (which is what most games use) are also affected.

If you're using wired connection can you disable the router's wireless networking (thus reducing the load on the router's processor) and see if the spikes go away.

Check router's firewall settings and see if any option for Denial-of-Service protection is enabled.

If the router supports DMZ, put the system in the DMZ (after making sure Window's firewall is enabled). This will check if it's the router's firewall that's causing the spikes.
