    Ok guys and gals I need your expertise. I have been running Windows 98SE for years with no problems until a few months ago so I finally installed the full version of XP HE. I have been playing Return To Castle Wolfenstein MP for a couple of years now when I was running 98 my ping online was 60 - 95 usually never over 100. Now with XP I am getting ping from 200 - 600. Very big difference in perormance. I have taken steps to free up system resources, downloaded the latest drivers for my cable modem but nothing seems to work. Can anyone help?

    How did you set up your network/Nic connections to your modem? Did you let XP handle it (usually the best bet), or did you use your ISP's setup disk.

    How are your other download/upload speeds? Have they also dropped?

    Seems to be a configuration problem of some sort. Nothing to do with resources.
