Need more info.

steam or won?

What connection errors do you get?

As far as testing your side, Run tracert from aa dos cmdline
try it throughout the day and see if you have a local node responding beyond ~500ms check dslreports.com and try their
line test program as well.

IN game change your RATE, CL_cmdrate and CL_updaterate
and see if that helps any.

Sorry, can't help you with steam.

Hello i got some connection problems too like: timeouts and from 0 to 10 loss and about 3 choke

I have an adsl router and it shows sometimes as many as +-100 crc errors and about 39 errored seconds

SNR Margin (downstream)23.5 (upstream)25.0 dB
Line Attenuation 35.4 18.0 dB
MTU : 1492

can i maybe fix this somehow?

btw the connection speed is 4 mbit down and 512 kbit up with no guaranteed speeds.

(an update on my problem not anyone elses)me and my friend discovered that its most likely a memory problem because i get program crashes left and right in games/apps and its always the same. either that or when i installed xp i did somthing wrong..so ...wish my luck :eek:
