and yeah I recently bought a new PC, I used XP on my previous one this problem wasn't there before.
You share your Internet with someone? If you do,than you'll always lag when that other person uses it for DL or something like that...
So, you are on a local network. You need a leased ADSL line to make sure you get all the bandwidth your network requests from the ISP. Or you can tell the other guys to stop downloading files.
You should try a bandwidth limiter like "Net Limiter".
is the steam working at win 98 ? :D
It's cuz your inet speed drops when some1 is downloading and this increases latency
i kinda lol'd xD, cause i have always shared internet with 2 computers, and is a comon fact for me, that if some1s watches videoso or downloads, i lag.
I duno, because i'am to lazy to search about it, but there is a way to share the internet in equal parts, so you won't lag.
Ex: you have a 4mb connection, you configure the internet to give 2mb for your computer and 2mb for the other computer.
If some1 knows anything about this stuff, just share your knowledge
