    This is for online gaming. I play StarCraft online. I have a Cogeco cable connection, but whenever I play on starcraft, the game lags. Three of my friends also have the exact same connection as me, and they never get lag. Is there a quick fix for this, like changing some settings or something, thanks

    Well either the cable modem is the problem or windows . Try and do a tracert to the server that you most play and should see where the lag comes ( it's possible that the server itself has the problem , it's possible since you have a cable modem , in your neighborhood there are too many connected etc..). If the problem end up to be the cable modem , not much can be done, since cable comp will not guarante you a low latency hence LPB.
    If you want to tweak windows take a look at the www.speedguide.net .
