    yea but in your older post you said u were gettin faster connection........

    shall i say the simple solution again?:)
    go back to 98:)

    i m assuming u tweaked out your cs configs......tweaked out xp......so it must be either 56k or the lag monster XP...u decide

    yes i did, but they contract hasent come for it so i'll have to put up with 56k for a lil longer and i have tweaked and its improved and yes im buy a secondary drive so i can put win98 on it because its not just cs i have problems with.
     
  4. you switched the QoS thingy off?

    forgot about QoS:)....dunno how big of a difference it might make tho:)
     
  6. Doesn't it take up something silly like 25% of your bandwidth, and on a 56k connection that's bound to be a problem! I've turned it off, but in the end i have 1MB cable!
