    Since tubine has taken over the game my connection to it has developed a bad latency. I am on cable and using a router Linksys NR401 4 port. Is it possible the firewall on the router is effecting the game performance and if that is possible anyone have a good set of instructions to set up port forwarding? The router has caused trouble trying to play counterstrike on two computers behind the router. That is another issue. :eek: I would be greatfull for any help.

    If you can, try plugging your computer directly into the cable modem - if you don't get the lag issues, there's your problem - the router.

    Just curious, do you have any file sharing programs running (ie kazza, emule, etc..)

    Also, are we talking ping time or packet loss?

    I have tried running without router and with and have tried two seperate computers. No no file sharing software on the computers. I am getting high packet loss and bad latency. Packet loss now runs about 12% sometimes more. The round trip ping time has been running about 5000ms or 5 sec. That makes for crappy gaming. Turbine says it is a peer to peer issue between AT&T and charter cable. They say it is the new server. ??????? :mad: :mad: :mad: I have left the game for now because of these issues. Is there any way to redirect the internet traffic to see if that will clear it up?
