View Full Version : Lag and disconects!!!! HELP
I am on AT&T@home cable(GI SurfBoard 3100 cable modem). I usualy get good speeds,right now I'm at 2469 dwn/538 up kbps.
But when gaming such as UnralTournament,I can play for a short time and thenstart getting lag.
When I race in Nascar3 online,I get a bad connection message about 75% through a 10% race,then get diconected.
What do ya think my problem is?
PS: I did install (sguide_tweak_98.zip)
and really helped my speeds.
I installed the default tweak and ran it and had the same problems.I reinstalled the tweak 98.zip
BTW,I was wodering if yiou all think my ethernet adptor could have anything to do with it>
It's a(EZ Connect USB 10/100 Fast Ethernet Adaptor)
I seen some say that a pci adaptor is better.
PCI NICs can have better pings than USB adapters. I would get a PCI NIC.

I had the same problem. Bascially my toshiba modem was crap it would timeoue and lose synch a lot. Go get Netmon (http://www.nullsoft.com/free/netmon/) have it ping your gateway address and see if it times out a lot on the graph. It could always be that crappy usb adapter though so I don't know.
Thnx for the help guys. http://www.speedguide.net/ubb/smile.gif
I thought the SurfBoard 3100 was sapost to be pretty good.
I am running Netmon and show no diconnects yet.
One more thing.I am not running a static adress,and they are having me use DHCP for wins resalution.
This look rite?
What is a good PCI NIC?
I like Intel. I use the 10/100 S Management NICs on my server system and clients (4 NICs total).
Thnx for the help. http://www.speedguide.net/ubb/smile.gif
I"ll check out that Intel card.
Wonder if I have to contact @home support if I change from the usb ethrnet to a pci ?
