Find a tool to check your packet loss. My connection went to crap for gaming several months ago, while surfing was flawless. It got worse and worse for a month until the connection started coming and going once or twice a day. When the guy came out and tested my line he found 99% packet loss at a junction outside the house. Fixed that in 15 minutes and all my troubles were gone. Also, with a proxy server or router, the effect of packet loss with games seems to be amplified.
I love my connection. I'm planning on installing linux on my box so i can play with some bioinformatics tools. I downloaded each of the RedHat ISO's at between 10-11 Megs a minute
I don't really see what the big deal about them charging for multiple IP's, buy yourself a cheap router and you don't have to worry about it. You gain a little protection in the process, and unless you had a switch before rather than just a hub, probably better network performance.
As for the digital cable, not bad, but my roomy has very nice digital satellite service
