Online gaming ping getting high suddenly then it starts to go down

I am not familiar with that specific MMORPG, are you logging into a dedicated host or is another player hosting the game, if it is another player hosting the game the problem could be on that players end and not yours.

You can try doing a hard rest on your router and then setting it back up, if you write down the old passcode you should be able to manually reenter it into the corresponding block in your router so you do not have to use a new one and setup all your wireless devices again.

It could also be someone else on your network hogging bandwidth" watching videos, downloading a large file"

When playing online games behind a firewall or router you need to open the ports(both incoming and outgoing(TCP/UDP)) that the game uses. I think someone did a reset on your router that's why your unable to play online games. It would also be helpful if you would mention what type of online game your trying to play.

Router will not allow me to play onling games through xbox 360

If the problem has something to do with NAT firewall in your router, then you may need to open certain application ports for your XBOX in the router. You may check this link from Microsoft that talks about NAT firewall and XBOX live.

Hope this helps!

Port forwarding problems, playing Total Annihilation (TA)

I think you may have to find out the port used by the game and set that port to be allowed access against your specific pc IP address in the virtual servers menu in your routers settings.
