    As some of you know steam the sequal to valve came out along with 1.6 for Counter-Strike a little while ago. Since it came out I've had nothing but problems. Most of which I have fixed. Recently when I am playing 1.6, for no reason at all, I'll get the following error
    Net_sendpacketerror: WSAEINTR
    This will cause steam to crash and close.
    I did a metacrawler search for the error, and came to 2 sites that both said I was to " Uninstal the QOS software from ur lan connection and ur internet connection" considering I saw the same fix from different people on 2 different sites, I figured to try it, since the steam forums werent helping any. unintsall went fine. I hop back on counter-strike 1.6, play 3 maps, near the end of the 3rd map, im running with my knife out, and bam I get the same
    Net_sendpacketerror: WSAEINTR
    Ugh Please help
    This is one fo the websites.

    There's a whole thread about it here...basically, it hasn't been completely fixed, there's been numerous reports of methods to fix it, but they don't work for everybody. Read through that whole thread for possible fixes, maybe something will work.

    I too am getting the Net_sendpacketerror:WSAEINTR.
    I have checked just about every forum, with just about no fixes. I tried the uninstall QoS Scheduler, and that didn't work.
    I'm not on 56k, and I'm not using a router. This problem has only just recently happened to me (within the last 3 days) And this error only seems to come up when im doing good in CS. I'm a little wary of trying what dart gun suggested because I uninstalled the QoS scheduler in order to fix this problem, and it didnt, so I basiclly uninstalled QoS scheduler for nothing, and I dont want to mess up anything more especially with some of the stuff dart listed. Could someone with some real expertise please help.

    Well I'm not sure if it was the new Steam update on Sept 24th at 7:20pm PST, or if it was Foofie's suggestion on the General section of the Steam forums, with that winsockxpfix(http://members.shaw.ca/techcd/WinsockXPFix.exe). I didn't get home until after 7:30pm PST, and didnt get the winsockxpfix downloaded until after 8:00pm PST. THANK YOU FOOFIE AND/OR STEAM!

    So if anyone gets this message in the future, and you are on a cable connection, and uninstalling the QoS Packet scheduler doesn't fix the error for you.
    Try this...
